Mayor told to get STP rule withdrawn 11.12.2017 deccanherald.com
The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) came under attack from the members of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) for the second time in as many months. At the monthly council meeting on Monday, members cutting across party lines criticised the BWSSB for making the installation of sewage treatment plants (STPs) mandatory for existing apartment complexes with more than 50 units built prior to February 2016 and 20 units for those built post that period. In November, members criticised the BWSSB for penalising its consumers who failed to produce the building occupancy certificate (OC). On Monday, the members urged Mayor R Sampath Raj to get the BWSSB to withdraw its mandatory order on the STPs. Apartment dwellers are protesting against the boards decision claiming that the older apartment complexes do not have proper infrastructure to install the STPs. They also said that sewage lines have been connected to the internal drainage system. The opposition party leaders complained that the ...

Cuffe Parde residents look to solar panels for savings 2.12.2017 DNA: India
To protect the environment and cut their expenses on bills, Cuffe Parde residents have decided to install solar panels to generate electricity for the supply of water to their open space. “At present, we are using electricity at commercial rates for our open space with a monthly bill of Rs 15,000,” said Padmakar Nandekar, secretary general of the Cuffe Parade Residents Association. The move, according to residents, is to ensure that they contribute to the preservation of the environment, and make the most of the money they are spending without any benefits. “Cost is secondary to us. We are nature-friendly people and look to have a cleaner source of electricity. The panels will cost us around Rs 9 lakh. Now, the money we pay for our bills does not give us any returns. The input cost is high but in the long run, it will be cost-effective,” said Nandekar. The residents have been trying to adopt other environment-friendly measures such reducing the use of plastic bags and purchasing a plastic crushing ...

BWSSB flayed for penalising consumers not having OCs 29.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) has come under criticism for penalising residential properties that do not have occupancy certificates (OCs). At the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) council meeting on Tuesday, members said the BWSSB was levying 50% penalty on the water bill on properties not having OCs issued by the BBMP. K Gopalaiah, the JD(S) legislator from Mahalakshmi Layout who is a member of the BBMP council, said the water board had issued a circular on March 3, 2016, stating that it will penalise properties without OCs. The BBMP commissioner, who is a member of the board, has not been informed, he added. According to Gopalaiah, the state government has issued a notification that it will supply 10,000 litres of free water to slum dwellers but officials were harassing people in the name of OCs. Mayor R Sampath Raj promised a special meeting to discuss the issue. BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said he would write to the water board to amend the ...

Demanding complete loan waiver for farmers, the Congress on Monday organised a huge farmers’ rally in Suratgarh of Sriganganagar district. The rally was largely attended by farmers of the canal irrigated district.   Addressing the rally, PCC chief Sachin Pilot accused the government of neglecting the interests of the farmers and creating a situation that they were compelled to commit suicide. Pilot said under the BJP regime, farmers were not getting water, seed and fertiliser at right time. Pilot alleged that farmers are not being given minimum support price for crops. “The Raje government is insensitive towards the needs of the farmers and their needs are not being met. Rather than addressing issues the government has once again deceived the farmers by forming a committee to look into loan waiver,” said Pilot He added, “The government had not ensured proper maintenance of canals that has caused water seepage and soil damage. The farmers are compelled to agitate repeatedly, but the government has not ...

Basic needs top the list, voters fume 20.11.2017 DNA: Top News
MUNICIPAL BUS SERVICES WHAT VOTERS HAVE TO SAY The roads in most parts is narrow and uneven. Often commuters use the internal roads of the society as city roads. This puts our children at risk while playing outside. Inadequate water supply is a major issue. In many areas, garbage keeps piling but it is not disposed by the authorities. Salmabanu Pathan: homemaker Water supply is slow and inadequate. People fall sick because of lack of cleanliness. There is flooding during monsoon. Things have become costlier. Price of an LPG cylinder has almost doubled. Price of vegetables is going through the roof. Electricity bills have risen disproportionately. Sayrabanu Saiyad: homemaker We do not get enough water. The force is inadequate. Shop-keepers are harassed by authorities and penalised. We are fined for garbage that flies to our shops. You do not have control over wind. Also the fine is not uniform. Sometimes it is Rs 500, and sometimes even Rs 1,000 or Rs 2,000. Kaushal Ajmera: College pass out I have been ...
