Now, police stations under CCTV surveillance 19.9.2014 deccanherald.com
In a bid to keep tabs on police personnel and ensure complainants/public are not harassed, CCTVcameras will soon be installed across police stations in the City. The Bangalore Political Action Committee (B.PAC) in association with the City Police has already installed CCTV cameras at three police stations on a pilot basis. As part of the project, three CCTV cameras each have been installed at Srirampura, Malleswaram and Seshadripuram police stations. Out of the three CCTV cameras, two have been installed inside the police station and one towards the entrance of the station. "The footage can be monitored from the control room in the police commissioner's office, but for now, it is monitored only when necessary. If anyone approaches us with problems in lodging a complaint or delay in registering FIRs, than we can go back and check the CCTV footage and take action. Hopefully, by the end of this year, every police station should be equipped with CCTV cameras," Police Commissioner M N Reddi said. Speaking to ...

Smart city: State stands to lose 19.9.2014 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka government has submitted to the Union UrbanDevelopment Ministry that the State stood at a disadvantage if the present eligibility criteria for selection of cities for the NDAgovernment's ambitious 'Smart City' project was adopted. A concept paper, circulated among the urban development ministers from various states last week, stipulates that 44 cities with a population range of 10-40 lakh and nine satellite cities with a population of 40 lakh or more would be among the 100 cities across the country that would be selected for the smart city project. Karnataka stands to lose out in these two categories as not a single city, apart from Bangalore, has a population of more than 10 lakh as per the 2011 census. In other words, no city in Karnataka can apply for the smart city status in these two categories (which form a bulk of 53 of the 100 proposed smart cities) as they will be failing to meet the primary eligibility criteria. Bangalore with a population 84.25 lakh cannot apply in these two ...

State awaits SC order on prisoners' release 19.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Home Minister KJGeorge on Thursday said the State government was awaiting the Supreme Court's vacation of stay on the premature release of life convicts on good behaviour, before approving the list of prisoners to be released from prisons across Karnataka. Addressing party workers at the KPCChead office, he said the government was ready with 200 names but awaiting the apex court's verdict in the premature release of convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case. "Once the stay is vacated, we will proceed," he said, adding that the government had already filed an application in Supreme Court to vacate the stay and allow the release of prisoners on good behaviour. On the Cabinet decision to curtail the powers of the governor while recommending names of prisoners to be released, George said changes in the guidelines were only related to Section 423 of the CrPC. "Otherwise, we have not curtailed any powers," he said. He said the government had been periodically reviewing the cases of undertrials, and those ...
