Which zone do you pick? 27.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Bengaluru has consistently emerged as one of the top real estate investment hotspots on account of the expansion of its IT corridors, capital inflow by foreign investments (due to IT and industrial developments), cosmopolitan hubs and improvement in connectivity across the city through extended transport services. Some of the Government's proposed infrastructure, namely - the Peripheral Ring Road (PRR), metro rail, signal-free Outer Ring Road, high-speed rail link, monorail and elevated expressway are factors influencing real estate growth and capital appreciation potential in Bengaluru. Yeshwantpur, Sarjapur Road, Whitefield and parts of North Bengaluru are the City's most promising residential micro-markets to invest in a home. The Outer Ring Road (ORR), a 60-km stretch which connects the City with National Highway-4 and runs through all four zones of the City has witnessed massive real estate investment which promises high returns.

The Kannada Development Authority (KDA) has written to the government, asking it to initiate action against Namma Metro for violating the language policy. In a letter addressed to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, KDA chairman S G Siddaramaiah said Namma Metro had been violating the language policy since 2011 and recommended that action be taken against all officers concerned. In the letter, copy of which is available with DH, the KDA chairman said a two-language policy should be adopted (Kannada and English), while Kannada should be the primary language for all administrative matters. "Metro is a state-funded project. The present managing director Pradeep Singh Kharola had clearly communicated this in a letter to the Union urban development secretary on July 2, 2016," the chairman said, stressing the need for giving primacy to Kannada.

BMTC loses 2.5 lakh commuters to Metro, but revenue goes up 27.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) has lost 2.5 lakh commuters in the last one month (since June 18), after Namma Metros south stretch was thrown open for commercial operations. Sources in BMTC said that the dip in ridership was especially visible in the south stretch as many commuters have migrated to Metro. The number of daily commuters has come down to 49 lakh from about 52 lakh. However, BMTC has not suffered any loss from this as the average daily revenue has increased from Rs 3.64 crore to Rs 4.08 crore in the said period. This was mainly due to the revision of fares. The corporation reduced the fare for the first stage but increased the rates for subsequent stages. The fare of air-conditioned buses, too, was revised. The corporation had 6,775 buses in 2014, of which 6,458 buses made 82,898 daily trips. The number of buses came down to 6,500 last year which further reduced to 6,190 after old buses were sent to the junkyard. The BMTC is buying 1,650 new buses this year with 10 ...

BMRCL to plant Bougainvillea saplings 27.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) has taken up an initiative to plant Bougainvillea saplings at the space available under the elevated Metro line.

As many as 30 varieties of Bougainvillea saplings have been identified to beautify the space. and each route will be identified with a specific variety of ornamental tree.

Tenders have been called to maintain and beautify the space. About 700 spots have been identified in the first phase of Metro. "Bougainvillea has been chosen as it is a unique plant which bears flowers throughout the year. Also, the plant bears flowers of different colours in different weather conditions. The plant does not get affected by worms easily," said a senior official of BMRCL.

However, S G Neginal, retired IFS officer, has suggested that it is better to include a variety of plant species instead of growing just one species. "It will be good if BMRCL plants Parijatha or Singapore Cherry plants along with Bougainvillea," he said.
