Industry closure: notice to govt, KSPCB 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The High Court of Karnataka on Tuesday ordered notices to the state government and the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) in a petition filed by Shahi Exports Private Limited seeking quashing of the notice issued to them by KSPCB to close down their unit on Bannerghatta Road. KSPCB has issued a notice on the directions of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) which has directed them to close down all the industries which are letting out untreated effluents into the Bellandur lake. The petitioner has also challenged the order of the NGT. The high court had previously stayed the further proceedings of the NGT-New Delhi with regard to a petition filed in NGT pertaining to the pollution of Bellandur lake. The petitioner had challenged the NGT - New Delhi order on the ground that it has passed the order without jurisdiction as the petition regarding pollution in Bellandur lake has to be heard by NGT in the Southern Zone bench Chennai. A division bench, comprising Chief Justice S K Mukherjee and ...

Skeletal suburban rail network needs connectivity too 24.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Outside the glare of the Namma Metro and BMTC services, a skeletal suburban rail network continues to find more takers in the city. Yes, the proposal for a full-fledged network is stuck in cost-sharing issues between the Centre and state. But the huge rush in the few local trains run under the skeletal system is an indication that the suburban rail will be the real game-changer. The IT crowd heading to Whitefield from Bengaluru City and Baiyappanahalli have already found the few local trains a far quicker, cheaper and safer option than BMTC buses or personal vehicles that get stuck in the chaotic road traffic. The launch of the Hoodi halt station near ITPL has helped the employees streamline their commute to office and back. On the Salem line, the Yeswantpur-Hosur-Yeshwantpur services are also getting more popular among the IT crowds. For those heading to software firms in Electronics City, alighting the train at Heelalige station makes perfect sense. This station is barely six km away from the IT ...

Apartments near Bellandur lake to get closure notices 23.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) is gearing up to crack down on more than 500 apartment complexes, commercial establishments and educational institutions located around Bellandur and Varthur lakes and their catchment areas in order to prevent them from polluting the waterbodies. On June 8, the KSPCB started inspecting apartment complexes, commercial establishments and educational institutions measuring 2,000 square feet or more and having 20 units or more. It has identified 547 of them. If no hindrances occur, the board will go on to slap closure notices on them by the end of June, Vijay Kumar, Member Secretary, KSPCB, told DH. KSPCB officials are inspecting these places under Section 33 (A) of the Air and Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Acts, and the exercise is not linked to the directions of the National Green Tribunal, he added. According to Kumar, this is the first time that the board is undertaking a drive of this scale against apartment complexes. "We have found that ...

Bengaluru first in India to get diesel delivered home 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
A startup has begun delivering diesel on customers doorsteps and hopes to add petrol to its services soon. MyPetrolPump, the Bengaluru-based startup, made its first delivery in the city last week. It has delivered about 5,000 litres so far. With this, Bengaluru becomes the first city in India to have diesel delivered home. With a fleet of three tankers, it also plans pilot runs in rural areas around Bengaluru. After a year of studying the Bengaluru market, MyPetrolPump found HSR Layout, Koramangala, Bellandur and BTM Layout ideal for its pilot phase. "They have a variety in terms of clientele, and hence, we started off there," founder Ashish Gupta told DH. He believes the service will be more effective in rural areas as customers have to travel long distances to get fuel. "And a lot is lost in the approach to the petrol pump," he said. 'Won't worsen traffic' Gupta believes the service could also help beat traffic. "The market we want to cater to is large organisations, such as schools and transport ...

Two boys stand up for their favourite tree 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
"Trees are home to small flora and fauna. They also have the right to live as much as they can and should not be axed for our right of way.'' This message from two boys has saved a 30-foot-tall fig tree from being axed near Bellandur lake. Parth Choudhary (9) and his brother Arjun Choudhary (7), residents of Euphoria Apartments next to Bellandur lake, have given a new lease of life to their favourite fig tree in their apartment complex. The roots of the tree were hindering the sewage line. "It all started around four months back, when the apartment association decided to improve the sewage line. It was found that the tree's roots were damaging the sewage line. The association members decided to uproot the tree. Parth and Arjun revolted when the contractors started chopping the branches. The boys' questions made us think and in one month, we found a solution. But we decided to implement it during monsoon and in the last two days, the tree was saved," said Prashanth Choudhary, their father. The children ...

Palike in a fix over zoning violations 21.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The order of the High Court of Karnataka banning commercial buildings in "residential main area" is flagrantly violated along the 10th Main Water Tank Road and surrounding areas in Indiranagar. Several commercial buildings dot this road, classified as "residential main zone" in the comprehensive development plan of the Bangalore Development Authority. The ward engineers of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), in reply to RTI queries by residents, admit that these buildings not only violate zoning regulations, but also lack trade licences. Yet, these buildings are intact and do brisk business. "Imagine a situation where 60-70 people are in an office adjacent to a residential building. Opening the windows of our house would mean that we are constantly under the gaze of these strangers. Our privacy has gone for a toss," says Praveen S, a member of Indiranagar Second Stage Residents' Welfare Association. Pubs and spas, he says, have added more to the nuisance. "God knows what all happens inside ...
