Experts for unified transport authority 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Stakeholders of the city's transport on Tuesday agreed that rapid urbanisation is throwing up mobility issues, which can only be addressed by a Unified Metropolitan Transport Authority (UMTA). At the stakeholders' workshop conducted by NGO, Praja RAAG, officials from various departments were convinced of the need for UMTA at the level of Bangalore Metropolitan Region Authority (BMRDA). "Putting the UMTA at the level of BDA or BBMP will destroy its purpose. It will become another coordination committee giving ad-hoc solutions instead of fixing the problems permanently," said Sathya Sankaran, Praja RAAG member and founder of Citizen for Sustainability. The divide between different agencies dealing with different issues that arise due to urbanisation makes it impossible to arrive at permanent solutions. "UMTA should have experts and skilled persons who can take initiatives based on data to bridge gaps and provide long-lasting solutions," he said. UMTA will take holistic initiatives without separating ...

'Mysuru was not in list of smart cities forwarded by state govt' 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - District
Even as the state government and people of Karnataka are rejoicing the inclusion of Bengaluru in the smart city list, it has come to light that Mysuru was never in the list forwarded by the state government. The lapse has been on the part of stakeholders, including people's representatives and government officials. Bhamy Shenoy, convenor of Mysore Grahakara Parishat, said that despite being the hometown of the chief minister, Mysuru lost the golden opportunity of transforming itself into a smart city. This, despite receiving a funding of over Rs 1,000 crore, 50% of which would have come from the Centre. "All the four stakeholders — Mysureans, Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) staff led by the commissioner, elected representatives, and civic organisations — are accountable for the loss. Most of the Mysureans are irresponsible. We take little or no interest in civic issues. We do not pay our water bills. Less than 50% to 60% of water bills are paid. We do not like to pay our property taxes. Again, ...
