Building debris still being dumped in catchment areas 26.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Although the government claims that it has taken steps to curb the dumping of construction and demolition (C&D) waste at the Bellandur and Varthur valleys and catchment area, indiscriminate dumping was seen even on Wednesday afternoon. Mahendra Jain, additional chief secretary, along with heads of Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) had visited the location after receiving complaints from citizens. Though the officials claimed that garbage and C&D waste dumping had stopped, the DH team saw debris sill being dumped. There was no police security or any official from any civic agency on the ground clearing the debris. All the JCBs were removed. Vehicles carrying loads of C&D waste were found to be reaching the catchment and valley area for dumping. When questioned, one of the vehicle drivers who was with two construction workers, said he was directed to dump the sand and stones near the lake by his boss Bala. ...

Central law may ease victim compensation 23.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
One of the basic principles of the criminal justice system in India is that crimes are wrongs against the nation. However, our overemphasis on this principle leads us to a situation where we focus primarily on punishing the accused, thereby ignoring the plight of the victims and their dependents who suffer grave loss and deprivation in cases of death caused by negligence, murder, rape, acid attack and other heinous crimes. Acknowledging the fact that victims (and their dependants) need to be provided relief and rehabilitation and that this is the responsibility of the nation, the United Nations Declaration on Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power, 1985, led member states to make provisions for victim compensation in their laws. India already had a law in this regard (the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973) empowering courts to order compensation if needed. But this enabling provision in the law, intended to provide relief, failed to do so because of three major shortfalls — the court could not order ...

Old emission norms render RTO helpless 17.4.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Air quality in Bengaluru has drastically come down in the last five years but authorities say they have been rendered toothless by decade-old emission standards. "Emission standards are same for Bengaluru and suburbs and even for towns in forest regions. How can you enforce a universal standard on this city without considering the 66 lakh vehicle population and rapid urbanisation," an official in the Transport department said. The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) had in 2008 concluded that vehicular emission accounts for 42% of the air pollution in the city while construction and industrial activities shared a big part of the remaining 58%. "For the past one year, we have enforced the Construction and Demolition Management Rules, 2016, which have checked the construction-related pollution. We expect the share of vehicles to increase to over 50%. We need another study to confirm this following which we can think of stringent standards," said KSPCB chairman Lakshman. Environment Support ...
