The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike has submitted to the High Court of Karnataka that it has managed to remove encroachment on around 430 km of stormwater drains of the 800 and odd km of stormwater drains in the city.

I Change, an NGO, along with Indiranagar residents' welfare associations (RWAs) is set to conduct a nine-a-side softball community cricket tournament from July 1.

"We plan to invite the civic authorities, be it law and order or other departments. Indiranagar is a huge place — OMR to Domlur and HAL to 100 Ft Road — come under Indiranagar.

Unplanned growth takes a toll on Shivajinagar 17.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Areas coming under the Shivajinagar Assembly constituency are among the oldest in Bengaluru, but they are struggling to come to terms with a booming city. Haphazard growth and unplanned urbanisation have taken a toll on the peace and tranquility of these areas. Increasing crime rate, heavy traffic, haphazard parking, corruption in public works and indifferent government officials have added to the discomfort of citizens. The civic grievances of Shivajinagar residents came to the fore at 'Janaspandana - Citizens for Change', an interactive programme organised by DH and Prajavani at Guru Nanak Bhavan on Miller's Tank Bund Road on Saturday. The event drew a sizeable crowd. Urban Development Minister R Roshan Baig, who represents Shivajinagar in the Legislative Assembly, local corporators and Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials interacted with citizens. Ganesh Babu, a resident of Sampangiram Nagar, complained how several courier offices have turned the residential locality into an undesirable ...

Abolition of contract system of civic workers may spell more trouble 15.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The proposed plan of the state government to manage garbage by regularising jobs of 10,000 pourakarmikas and to do away with the civic workers on contract seems to be on a shaky ground. The civic workers across the state had taken to streets earlier this week, demanding regularisation of their services and abolition of contract system in hiring pourakarmikas. Their main complaint against the contractors was that they do not pay the salaries on time and hold back for as long as three months. There are 198 contractors in the city in as many wards. BBMP seems to be not equipped to provide proper infrastructure such as facilitating tippers and, pushcarts for civic workers. On record, there are 32,000 pourakarmikas in BBMP. Of these, 4,000 are on the BBMP rolls while the remaining 28,000 are outsourced. The government plans to regularise only 10,000 pourakarmikas leaving the remaining 18,000 jobless. This means that after regularisation there will be just 14,000 pourakarmikas who have to do the job of 32,000 ...
