Trash not cleared in mayor's ward Garbage has been thrown on the main road of a busy junction in Rajajinagar 4th Block — the intersection of 2nd and 3rd main roads. Though our area is represented by the mayor, no action has been taken despite several complaints to the elected representatives. Sathyaprakash C A Rajajinagar BSNL lines dead 15 days a month I have a BSNL landline and broadband connection with monthly fixed charges of Rs 1,090. The server stops working and the landline remains dead for almost 15 days in a month. But the BSNL billing section is very efficient and charges me Rs 35 a day for a connection that doesn't work. Even the BSNL customer care numbers don't work.

Many properties in city may soon get 'A' khatas 9.3.2017 deccanherald.com
There is some relief in the offing for thousands of residents in municipal limits having properties in layouts where land use change is approved by the revenue deputy commissioner but lack layout approval by other competent authorities. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will soon take a decision to issue such properties the much sought-after 'A' khata. At present, most of the properties have 'B' khatas, which are not valid documents and the houses are liable for demolition. 'B' khata is only a register to record the presence of properties which are built on diverted plots but do not have any approvals. After registering these properties, the Palike issues a slip to the owner of the property comprising the entry number with the name of the ledger. This way, the slip gets the name 'B' khata. BBMP's Taxation and Finance Committee chairperson M K Gunashekar told DH, "We will take a decision on issuing 'A' khatas to diverted plots in a week. This will, however, not be applicable to revenue sites ...
