KSRTC to revive rainwater harvesting systems 22.5.2015
The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) will revive defunct rainwater harvesting systems in its existing depots and also make the system mandatory for all upcoming buildings under it. According to KSRTC officials, one-third of all the existing depots, office buildings and other structures under the corporation have rainwater harvesting systems in place. But these were installed many years ago and most of them are currently defunct. Officials say the existing systems will be revived immediately and upcoming structures, including bus stations and depots under the KSRTC's jurisdiction, will have rainwater harvesting systems in place. On an average, the KSRTC builds about two dozen new structures annually. The water consumption of a bus depot is quite high as each bus requires many gallons of water for washing. Speaking to Deccan Herald, the KSRTC Managing Director Rajender Kumar Kataria said, "It is a crucial area of concern for the corporation as water is a precious resource for everyone and ...

A-G: State right in clearing lake encroachments 22.5.2015
Advocate General Ravivarma Kumar has defended the State government's action against lake encroachments.

Speaking to reporters here Friday, he said, "The action the government is taking against lake encroachments is the right thing to do. I have told the government that no encroacher should be given a chance to legalise a wrong.

"Everybody who has encroached on the land will have to give it up. Whether it is private persons or civic bodies, the government will act against them," he said.

He said it was a disaster that the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) itself has encroached upon lake land. Water is supposed to collect in this space and there is no place for buildings and other structures in lakes, he said.

Further he said, "By bringing back the Ryotwari Land Revenue System from the British times, we can more scientifically identify commercial and forest lands. A solution can also be found for the problem of encroachments."

Doctor helps Bengaluru woman deliver baby on moving train 22.5.2015
For a doctor, call of duty may come any time and this was true for Dr Vidya Deshmukh who was on her way to Varanasi from Jagadalpur in Chhattisgarh. Deshmukh boarded the Patna-bound Saghamitra Express at Nagpur on Thursday where she had to attend to a pregnant woman and help her deliver a baby. Twenty five-year-old Sabha Parvin, who had boarded the train at Bengaluru was travelling in a sleeper coach, while the doctor was in the AC coach. Parvin developed labour pain when the train was crossing Itarsi station in Madhya Pradesh around 4 pm. The next station, Piparya, was an hour away but time was running out as the amniotic sac (bag of water) that surrounds the baby burst. Immediately co-passengers alerted TTE Ganesh Swarup, who located Deskhmukh after scanning the passengers list. As the doctor arrived to the spot, the TTE and others cleared off all the male passengers from the coach and allowed only two women passengers to stay there to help the doctor. They put bedsheets as curtains, and other ...
