Experts for unified transport authority 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Stakeholders of the city's transport on Tuesday agreed that rapid urbanisation is throwing up mobility issues, which can only be addressed by a Unified Metropolitan Transport Authority (UMTA). At the stakeholders' workshop conducted by NGO, Praja RAAG, officials from various departments were convinced of the need for UMTA at the level of Bangalore Metropolitan Region Authority (BMRDA). "Putting the UMTA at the level of BDA or BBMP will destroy its purpose. It will become another coordination committee giving ad-hoc solutions instead of fixing the problems permanently," said Sathya Sankaran, Praja RAAG member and founder of Citizen for Sustainability. The divide between different agencies dealing with different issues that arise due to urbanisation makes it impossible to arrive at permanent solutions. "UMTA should have experts and skilled persons who can take initiatives based on data to bridge gaps and provide long-lasting solutions," he said. UMTA will take holistic initiatives without separating ...

A city court has acquitted four Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials, who were charged with being responsible for the death of Geetha Lakshmi (9) who was washed away after she fell into an uncovered drain on Bannerghatta Road on October 6, 2014. The officials who have been acquitted are Shivaprakash K M (53), the then jurisdictional assistant executive engineer, S L K Swamy (45), the then jurisdictional joint engineer, S G Shivakumar (56) and Renukananda V (50).

'Mysuru was not in list of smart cities forwarded by state govt' 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - District
Even as the state government and people of Karnataka are rejoicing the inclusion of Bengaluru in the smart city list, it has come to light that Mysuru was never in the list forwarded by the state government. The lapse has been on the part of stakeholders, including people's representatives and government officials. Bhamy Shenoy, convenor of Mysore Grahakara Parishat, said that despite being the hometown of the chief minister, Mysuru lost the golden opportunity of transforming itself into a smart city. This, despite receiving a funding of over Rs 1,000 crore, 50% of which would have come from the Centre. "All the four stakeholders — Mysureans, Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) staff led by the commissioner, elected representatives, and civic organisations — are accountable for the loss. Most of the Mysureans are irresponsible. We take little or no interest in civic issues. We do not pay our water bills. Less than 50% to 60% of water bills are paid. We do not like to pay our property taxes. Again, ...

Now, animal carcass too can be recycled 26.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The BBMP is planning to set up four animal waste processing units in the city. With the production of 120-150 tonnes of animal waste every day, the waste is often dumped in open fields, which results in clogging of drains and attracts stray animals. Sarfaraz Khan, joint commissioner, solid waste management, BBMP, said, "The Palike has already allotted Rs 2 crore for two incineration plants. Tenders are being called for two rendering units." Incineration and rendering of waste are two common methods of disposing it. Animal waste can be hazardous if it is not disposed of properly. The rendering unit has more challenges as the waste collected here has to be converted into useful derivables. Products such as protein powder for canines and feed for aquatic animals will be derived in the rendering unit. The fresh carcass can be converted into food for fish and other animals and the dry carcass can be converted into bio-fertilisers. "It is not difficult to dispose of carcasses of larger animals as they can ...

Repair work on Kino theatre stuck as Palike, BWSSB pass buck 26.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The work on the railway underpass near Kino theatre at Anand Rao Circle, where waterlogging problems are common during rains, has been stalled as BBMP and BWSSB officials pass the buck to each other. But the road is thrown open to traffic even as the work is in progress. A pipeline was being laid by BBMP to prevent waterlogging. But even before the completion of asphalting process and removal of debris, vehicular movement has been allowed. Siddegowda, engineer, stormwater drains (SWDs), Banaswadi region, said, "We have covered the SWD. A pipe has been laid at the underpass towards Mantri Mall to prevent waterlogging. Another pipe for sewerage has to be laid by BWSSB officials. Only then, can we do the remaining work." The concrete debris along the path has left no room for pedestrians, while the uneven road makes it difficult for the movement of vehicles. The walls along the sides of the road also seem to be in dire need of renovation. When contacted, BWSSB officials denied any responsibility. "It is the ...

Mayor checks progress of Indira Canteen structures at TN factory 24.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
As the deadline of August 15 to set up Indira Canteens is nearing, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike is working on making the facilities ready before August 1. On Friday, Mayor G Padmavathi, along with corporators and Palike officers, visited Krishnagiri in Tamil Nadu where a multinational company, KEF Infrastructure, is fabricating the canteens at its offsite manufacturing facility. The Palike is building these canteens in each of the 198 wards. These precast materials will be brought to Bengaluru and assembled at the designated places. The mayor told reporters that the canteens will be ready before the deadline as the pace of work was satisfactory. She said that though the precast material is light, it is strong enough to last more than 100 years. According to Palike sources, the firm agreed to build these structures at a cost of Rs 28.5 lakh each against Rs 34 lakh quoted earlier. The manufacturer displayed a fully furnished model canteen at its site. Company executives made a power-point ...

BBMP to distribute, monitor saplings through app 24.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The BBMP has now come up with a unique idea to increase the green cover in the city and also to ensure that it is well maintained. The BBMP has announced distribution of 10 lakh saplings to Bengalureans, but the catch is that they will have to order the saplings through the corporation's newly launched app (bbmp.sahaya.in). "The idea of making people purchase the saplings through the app is to have a record of the buyers. With this record, we will be able to check the status of the saplings," said BBMP Assistant Conservator of Forests Ratna Prabha. "Demand for saplings has always been there. People plant a sapling, but do not maintain it. We have always faced the wrath of people for not planting the required saplings and maintaining them. But this time, people will have to maintain them and we will check them. We will conduct periodic drives and check the condition of the saplings," said another BBMP Forest Cell official. The app was launched a month ago and since then, the BBMP has received requests ...
