As many as 10 out of 63 City lakes exist only on paper, and another 26 have nothing of their original identity, a Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) communique has revealed. Emphasising the pathetic state of water bodies in Bangalore, once famed as the "City of Thousand Lakes", a list of 36 lakes sent by BBMP to the deputy commissioner (DC) of Bangalore Urban district has revealed that strategically located Sankey Tank in posh Sadashivanagar too, has not escaped encroachment. As part of a series of letters written to the DC, the BBMP lake division wrote another letter on August 25, 2014 seeking the survey sketch of these 36 lakes, which have been partially or totally encroached upon.

At a recent grievance meeting held with the Board officials and Larsen & Toubro, the company executing the work, residents poured out their woes about the ongoing project. K V Bhaskar Murthy, president, Federation of Jayanagar Resident's Associations, said neither the BWSSB nor L&T had taken responsibility for the manner in which the work was being carried out.

Hurdles may be ahead for Namma Metro. The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), one of the prominent funding agencies for Phase I of the mega project, may think twice on investing in Phase II due to delay in completion of Phase I. The JICA's deputy chief representative, Ichiguchi Tomohide, who was in Bangalore on Thursday, told Deccan Herald in an exclusive interview: "We are aware of the delay in completion of Phase I of the Metro mainly due to slow progress on the underground stations and poor performance by the contractors. The overall project progress is fine, but we may say that for funding of Phase II, the Phase I should be completed first."

Meanwhile, BMRCL Managing Director Pradeep Singh Kharola said: "The project has been indeed slow on the North-South Corridor of Phase I due to underground stations and tunneling work.
