BWSSB will spare most apartments from fine for not possessing OC 12.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The BWSSB would ask for Occupancy Certificate to residences with five kitchens and commercial areas with more than 300 square metres, sparing a large number of flats from penalty. The Board has been charging a fine on those flats that obtain water connection without producing OC. With the penalty hurting a large number of residents, the issue was raised at a special council meeting of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to which BWSSB Chairman Tushar Girinath was invited. "According to Karnataka Municipal Act, we are supposed to give OCs for residential spaces with more than five kitchens, irrespective of the floor on which they are located," BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said.

However, at ...

Set for a short ride home 12.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Ever watched The Jetsons and wondered how you could get into one of those pod taxis and swoosh to your destination? This could soon be a reality in Bengaluru because the BBMP has planned to introduce the Personal Rapid Transit System (pod taxi service) near the Metro Stations and bus stations (in selected stretches). With dug-up roads and traffic snarls becoming a part of ones routine, this proposal is being welcomed by citizens. Despite limited feeder bus services from Metro stations and connecting buses from bus stations, these pod taxis could be a blessing in disguise for those who depend on public transport, vouches Usha Iyengar, a teacher and resident of Kengeri. "Imagine a break from commuting on bad roads, blaring horns and road rage? What more could you ask for? A pod taxi service at places like Silk Board junction or in Whitefield would cut down on so many hours of travel time," she says. Usha points out that once such a service is introduced, it should be available every three to five ...

DH 2017: Bengaluru! you're at POINT BLANK: The fall and the rise of the city 12.12.2017 deccanherald.com
6. "Do bans really work?" ask people on the street There have been arguments in favour of keeping highways free from the pub menace. A regular, heavy drinker would keep stock in his or her vehicle, but it is better not to attract an occasional drinker towards liquor with an outlet on the way. 7. Wrong parking, overspeeding, the nightmares Many areas in the city have turned accident-prone zones due, primarily, to a large number of private buses violating traffic rules. The police list out common complaints against private buses: Wrong parking, stopping buses on roads to pick up passengers, overspeeding, signal-jumping, pick-up point on congested roads, competing with rival operators and government buses, besides overloading. 8. African students, bridging divides Trapped in the cross-fire of cultural divisions, are African students in Bengaluru getting stereotyped? Are local communities who complain about the misdeeds of a few students unfairly branded as racist? Or is there a genuine chance for consensus, ...

Farmer turns successful nurseryman 11.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Anything can be achieved with a strong will and hard work," says Prakash, a proud nurseryman from Pakegowdana Palya near Hesaraghatta on the outskirts of Bengaluru. The quote stems from his experience of transformation from a humble farmer to a successful nursery owner with an annual turnover of three crore rupees. Fifteen years ago, just like his fellow vegetable growers, he used to raise seedlings on raised beds and transplant them after a month. Even slightly higher rainfall post transplanting would ruin the crop. Besides, this practice demanded higher seed rate and higher cost towards the seed. To avoid all these, he thought of producing seedlings in trays with cocopeat as the growing medium. The Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, which is located close to his land, came to his help through technical guidance. Prakash started with eight plastic trays using which he produced 800 seedlings. This effort resulted in quality seedlings, better crop and reduced crop period. Farmers in the ...

Mayor told to get STP rule withdrawn 11.12.2017 deccanherald.com
The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) came under attack from the members of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) for the second time in as many months. At the monthly council meeting on Monday, members cutting across party lines criticised the BWSSB for making the installation of sewage treatment plants (STPs) mandatory for existing apartment complexes with more than 50 units built prior to February 2016 and 20 units for those built post that period. In November, members criticised the BWSSB for penalising its consumers who failed to produce the building occupancy certificate (OC). On Monday, the members urged Mayor R Sampath Raj to get the BWSSB to withdraw its mandatory order on the STPs. Apartment dwellers are protesting against the boards decision claiming that the older apartment complexes do not have proper infrastructure to install the STPs. They also said that sewage lines have been connected to the internal drainage system. The opposition party leaders complained that the ...

HC stays STP rule for old apartments 11.12.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The high court stayed the implementation of the BWSSB regulation that mandates the installation of sewage treatment plants and dual piping systems in existing buildings with 50 or more apartments. Justice A S Bopanna passed the interim order while hearing a batch of petitions filed by the Raheja Residency Apartment Owners apex body and 12 other petitioners, comprising various apartment owners associations in the city. The bench observed that the structural integrity of the buildings has to be taken into account as most of them are nearly 10 to 30 years old. According to the petitioners, the regulation is illegal, arbitrary and unconstitutional. The petition states that the regulation violates the directions issued by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board, wherein it is the responsibility of the urban and local bodies to set up a system for sewage and waste disposal of the local area. The petitioners stated that the BWSSB is passing on this ...
