Century Club no more a private entity, rules info commission 16.3.2018 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka Information Commission (KIC) has declared Century Club located within the Cubbon Park area a public authority under the Right To Information Act 2005. The land was allotted to the club, which was started by dewan of Mysore state the late Sir M Visvesvaraya in 1913, by the then Mysore government. A bench headed by L Krishnamurthy, taking into account the cost of the land and the rent payable by the club management all these years, on March 14 considered the club as being financed by the government. Hence, Century Club is declared a public authority, refuting contentions of the club claiming it is a private entity. "The then state government of Mysore in the year 1913 has given out land of about 7.5 acres (7 acres and 20 guntas) to Century Club which was previously called Cosmopolitan Club free of cost for the development of club activities on certain conditions. Thus, this grant of land to the club free of cost amounts to substantial indirect finance by the state government, (sic)" stated ...

Road hump caused youth's death. BBMP's paying for it 23.2.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
It is exactly 10 years since an unscientific speed-breaker in BTM Layout killed Suryaprakash (22). His father Guru M Chavans long and hard legal battle is now showing results. A Metrolife special Suryaprakash was just 22 when a road accident claimed his life. The accident was caused by a random, unscientific speed-breaker. February 24, 2008 is a day his father Guru M Chavan remembers vividly. "My son was returning from work when his bike hit an unmarked hump in BTM Layout. He skidded and fell and injured his head," he recalls. The hospital said the death was due to brain shock. When Chavan went to the Madivala police station, the inspector casually told him, "It is routine, sir. The roads are like that." That pushed the bereaved father into deeper despair. "How is my son losing his life routine?" he asks. Chavan then consulted Anil Kumar, a friend working on a project about unscientific road humps. Anil told Chavan to take a picture of the hump. "After that we filed an RTI application seeking information ...
