That group has BBMP ward-level engineers, corporators, joint commissioners of the Palike, BMTC, BWSSB, traffic police and fire forces. Warnings ignored But, as one looks back, such forecasts made no difference to Bengalureans. Over a dozen people died, hundreds of localities were flooded for days. Roads are in a mess, drains clogged and in total disrepair. The message is clear: Despite giant strides in technology, the country's IT hub has ...

Mangalore University will make its marks cards and degree certificates fake-proof by adopting the use of Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology. There have been many cases of candidates producing fake marks cards and certificates. The state higher education department had even recommended last year that universities procure marks cards from Mysore Sales International Ltd, with tear-resistant and tamper-proof features.
