Illegalities are the norm here 3.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Right beneath a high tension wire, toddlers sing rhymes with their teacher at Hosakerehalli ward under Padmanabhanagar Assembly constituency. They are unaware that the school's position is not in conformity with the law and their lives may be at risk if any untoward incident takes place. If the nursery school under the high tension wire outrages anyone, there are many multi-storey independent houses in and around Hosakerehalli ward with their roof barely five feet away from a HT line. These dangerous spots are easily accessible to anyone, including children. Apparently, the struggle for a roof and survival is even more higher than the high tension wire. The Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited Director (Transmission) S Sumanth affirms that no construction should happen beneath the high tension wire. But in Hosakerehalli, there is hardly any place beneath the HT line where residential and commercial structures have not come up. Padmanabhanagar Assembly constituency, represented ...

A chaotic mix of mounting vehicular traffic, haphazard parking, encroached footp 3.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Once a spacious and serene residential locality, Vijayanagar Assembly constituency is now bustling with activities. Increasing vehicular traffic and unregulated commercial development have become the bane of residents here. Almost all eight Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) wards have witnessed rapid commercial development over the last few years. A majority of the residential properties along the main roads has now become commercial. Showrooms, medical shops, boutiques, salons...assortment of other commercial activities have cropped up on all main roads. This has resulted in increase in traffic volume. In the absence of designated parking space in any of the wards and blatant violation of basement parking rules, vehicles are parked on footpaths and roads. To avoid heavy traffic on main roads, two-wheelers use residential bylanes. Hawkers and roadside eateries occupying the footpath space have only added to the problem. But neither the BBMP nor the traffic police has taken any measure to some ...

Power research unit given 49 ha land on Wardha Road 3.7.2015 Nagpur News, Nagpur City News | Cities News - Times of India

BMTC buses booked for violating SC guidelines 2.7.2015 deccanherald.com
In a drive conducted on Thursday, the Transport department officials have booked cases against 10 BMTC buses for failing to meet the guidelines laid down by Supreme Court for school bus services.

These buses were used to ferry students of Sophia School near Chalukya Circle, an RTO official said.

The guidelines issued by the apex court state that all school buses must have the right permits as well as the text, "on school duty" prominently displayed on the vehicle. Other rules include the provision of a first-aid box and drinking water in the bus besides other safety measures like an emergency exit and lockable doors.

A notice was also issued to the Managing Director of BMTC in this connection. The RTO official said that there were more buses ferrying schoolchildren across the city and that the drive would continue. BMTC Managing Director Ekroop Caur said that BMTC had almost 300 buses which were used for ferrying schoolchildren.

Bursting at seams, Malleswaram wards stumped by debris 2.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Malleswaram is like a sugar-coated pill. The very name Malles-waram conjures up images of old Bengaluru, shady trees lining the streets, food joints dishing out traditional cuisine, among others. That's just part of the locality. What lurks inside the seven Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP)wards - Aramanenagar, Mathikere, Malleswaram, Rajamahal Guttahalli, Kadu Malleswaram, Subramanyanagar and Gayathrinagar - is more bitter than sweet. Drinking water shortage, frequent traffic pile-ups due to narrow roads, erratic parking, and mosquito menace are perennial problems faced by residents here. The busy Triveni Road connecting Yeshwantpur Circle to MSRamaiah Road is a classic example of the chaos and congestion that mars several pockets of the locality. Pedestrians and vehicles fight for space even as shopkeepers spill out their wares onto the streets. Constant honking by vehicles, exhaust fumes and dust rent the air making it almost unbreathable. Malleswaram 8th cross, Gayathrinagar ...

Big development divide: Areas with good roads flanked by hell-holes of despair 2.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Byatarayanapura, one of Bengaluru's biggest and sought-after constituencies, still struggles for an identity and basic facilities, although some areas have seen development. If Vidyaranyapura, Defence Colony, Teachers Colony, CQAL Layout, Nagaland Colony, Maruthi Nagar, Kuvempu Nagar and Kodigehalli have good roads and water connection, areas such as Thanisandra, Ashwathnagar, Mestri Palya, MS Palya Shingapura and Jakkur village are in a shambles. The constituency has seven wards- Jakkur, Thanisandra, Byatarayanapura, Kodigehalli, Vidyaranyapura, Doddabommasandra and Kuvempunagar. These include eight gram panchayats - Doddajala, Chikkajala, Hunsemaranahalli, Bagalur, Marenahalli, Sonappanahalli, Bettahalasooru, Bandi Kodigehalli, Betta Halasuru and Bagalur. Land prices in most parts of Bengaluru north are sky-rocketing and they are guiding the rates in the rest of the City. But dwellers here point that there is no balanced development. One on side of the road, there are multi-storeyed apartments and ...

Hennur at the cusp of progress 2.7.2015 Deccan Herald - Supplements
An integral part of north Bengaluru, Hennur would have remained largely neglected if it had not been for the new international airport. Ever since the airport was constructed in 2005, Hennur has been enjoying a fair amount of attention from home seekers and builders alike. With close access to Banaswadi, HBR Layout and Hebbal, Hennur is fast emerging as the hotbed of real estate development in the City. Located 20 km away from Majestic and 25 km away from the airport, Hennur is for those who travel quite often. Long neglected, Hennur is now poised to rise exponentially in terms of growth. Leiya Chon Tungshangao, CEO, DS MAX Group, is of the opinion that "The major attractive point of Hennur is that it is not very far from the City, yet enjoys a calmer and peaceful ambience." Shedding light on the working points for the area, Suresh Hari, secretary, CREDAI, agrees, "Hennur is mainly sought after for its connectivity. Currently, an alternative route for the airport has also been planned. If this parallel ...
