BDA's tender to rebuild complex gets poor response 18.1.2018 deccanherald.com
The BDA finds itself in a tight spot as it has failed to find bidders to rebuild its complex in Indiranagar even after floating tender thrice. Its third attempt has managed to attract two applications, one of which has a political backing. The Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) had invited tenders to rebuild the dilapidated Indiranagar BDA Complex under public-private-partnership (PPP) first on March 24, 2015. It was cancelled as no bidders submitted the area-sharing statement. It again floated tenders for the second time on January 5, 2016. Now, it got only one application. But this time, the bidder cancelled the proposal citing the National Green Tribunal buffer zone regulation of 50 metres around stormwater drains as the reason. On August 23, 2017, the agency again invited the tenders and got the response from two applicants - MFAR Developers Limited and a joint venture by Maverick Holdings and Investments Private Limited; and Embassy Property Developments Private Limited. Interestingly, Bengaluru ...

Fire dept begins rechecking pubs, rooftop restaurants 16.1.2018 deccanherald.com
The fire and emergency services department has started reinspecting the 70 pubs, bars and rooftop restaurants that were served notices for neglecting fire safety. The department had inspected the establishments in Indiranagar, Koramangala, JP Nagar, Jayanagar 4th Block and Bannerghatta Road so as to avert tragedies such as the fire in a Mumbai pub that killed 14 people on December 29, 2017. Many establishments were found to be functioning without having obtained No Objection Certificates (NOCs) from the department. All of them had time until January 14 to comply with the fire safety regulations. On Tuesday, regional fire officers started reinspecting the establishments to find out whether they had fallen in line. They will submit a report after inspecting all the establishments this week, Soumendu Mukherjee, the IGP and additional director of the department, told DH. He added that based on the report, action would be taken against the errant ...

Pod-taxi route in conflict with Metro alignment 16.1.2018 deccanherald.com
The grand 30.5-km pod-taxi network proposed by the Bruhath Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) could run into conflict with a critical Namma Metro Phase 3 line: The Marathahalli Hosakerehalli route tentatively proposed to pass right through Old Airport Road, the main pod-taxi line. The Palike has made it clear that the pod-taxi pillars will be erected on the median strip. How can this be managed when the Metro pillars are bound to take up that space? Urban mobility experts also question the financial viability of running two similar modes of transport along the same line. Touted as a feeder to the Metro and last-mile connectivity option, the pod-taxi network could potentially fill gaps in the Metro network. But the route chosen, though tentative, is apparently a duplication exercise. Consider this: The pod-taxi line starts at Trinity Metro station leading to Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) stations at Agaram, Domlur, Hotel Leela Palace, HAL Airport, Gandhinagar (just after Marathahalli) and beyond towards ...

Indiranagar peace, lost forever 13.1.2018 deccanherald.com
Lost in the quietness of their tree-lined neighbourhoods, Bengalurus Indiranagar residents once lived a beautiful dream. But today, that vision from a different era lies completely in tatters. Blatant, unregulated commercialisation has trapped the residents in a chaotic twister of sleepless nights, encroached public spaces, over-stretched amenities and traffic that never seems to end. On the main roads of this sprawling area, zonal regulations remain deeply compromised. Buildings, ominously commercial in design and intent, have sprung up all over without setbacks, without even a token respect to the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) rules. The audacity of these violations has left everyone wondering: Why did the civic agencies permit this? Bribery, nepotism The message is loud and clear: Rules were flouted. Yet, Occupancy Certificates, trade licenses, power and water connections were issued in a jiffy. The all-clear go-aheads had corruption, bribery, nepotism and a system gone horribly wrong written in big, bold ...

Stepping into big shoes? Paytm Mall takes Flipkart's old Bengaluru office 8.1.2018 Business Standard: Companies & Industry
One of the most famous addresses in Bengaluru just welcomed a new tenant. Call it coincidence or a calculated move by two companies backed by the same investor. Flipkart's 50,000 sq ft space, base of operation for the e-ommerce giant over more than a decade was taken over by Paytm Mall, to set up another base of operation for the latter marketplace.This was one of the first headquarters that Flipkart, the Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal-led company, moved into after managing to close a few major funding rounds. Thanks to Flipkart, the popularity of Koramangala in the commercial space market soared. It soon became one of the most sought locations to set shop for start-ups and venture capital funds. Flipkart has already moved almost all its office in Bengaluru to a new two million sq ft custom-built campus, at Cessna Business Park on Sarjapur Road. According to sources, it had paid Rs 3.5-4 million a month for the old space and Paytm Mall has bagged the lease for Rs 6 mn a ...
