The Bangalore Electricity Supply Company Ltd (Bescom) has constituted a five-member expert committee to study the implications of its smart meter project, which it plans to launch by the end of this financial year.

'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, ...

Officials from state head for Delhi to save watering holes 26.6.2017 deccanherald.com
With only three days to go for the closure of bars and pubs near "highways" within the city, a team of officials from the state government will meet officials of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) in Delhi on Tuesday to save the watering holes in the city. Law Minister T B Jayachandra said a team of officials from the Finance and PWD departments will visit Delhi. "If the officials do not succeed in getting the highways in the city denotified, then we will explore legal options," the minister added. Govindaraj Hegde of Federation of Wine Merchants Association said the state government had written a letter to the NHAI back in 2015 seeking denotification of roads in city limits but did not follow it up. "We could have avoided with this needless worry had it not been for the officials' negligence," he added. "Many roads at taluk and district levels have already been denotified… Officials thought highway tags of city roads will also be removed eventually. Nobody foresaw this situation," he ...
