Eyeing 'smart' future, Jaipur polishes its heritage 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Jaipur has fished out of its trove heritage buildings and is dusting off its fabled pink markets and stepwells to make them all squeaky clean for the second anniversary of the launch of the Centres smart city project. Jaipur made it to the select list of smart cities -- balancing the old and the new -- six months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the project on June 25, 2015. Officials here said before the year-end, Jaipur would have completed much of its heritage restoration work. The area-based development is being executed by the Jaipur Smart City Limited (JSCL), formed on March 12, 2016. An amount of Rs 483.65 crore has been earmarked for promoting heritage and tourism in the city under the mission. "The idea is to restore Jaipurs heritage so that it can be cherished by the citys people and explored by travellers who visit Jaipur for its architectural beauty and rich culture," said JSCL chairman Manjit Singh. The Union urban development ministry has approved investments worth Rs 2,401 crore ...

Now, an artwork at frothing Bellandur lake gives the message 19.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Bellandur lake has now caught people's attention for something other than its pathetic condition. An artwork — a simple message in Kannada etched on the mesh erected around the waterbody — is making passersby stop and take notice. Noted artist Suresh Kumar G and his five-member team etched the message 'Kereya Neerannu Oorige Chelli' (spill the lake water into the city) on the chain link fence of Bellandur lake on Sunday. The words are carved in cotton. The idea is to make the artwork resemble the froth from the lake and convey the message. The photographs and videos of the artwork are doing the rounds of social media. "I have tweaked the popular Kannada saying, 'Kereya Neerannu Kerege Chelli'. I thought this was the best way to explain the present scenario of lake pollution, water shortage, lack of recycling water and poor connectivity between lakes," he said. The Kannada saying literally means return the lake water back to the lake. Figuratively, it means going back to one's roots. The ...

Officials from the urban development department and the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board have decided to continue the cleaning drive in Bellandur Lake. Urban development department officials said a team of lawyers will review the stay order issued by the Karnataka High Court on Thursday. Meanwhile, the orders have been shared with the National Green Tribunal (NGT) for examination and further guidelines, by a team of legal experts. Mahendra Jain, additional chief secretary, UDD, told DH, "Cleaning the lake was on the agenda of the state government and it was recommended by the expert committee even before the NGT issued its orders. So, it will continue. Yes, the time given by the committee was more than what was scheduled by the NGT. However, the government has set a deadline and we will adhere to it." He added that after clearing weeds and checking inflow of untreated sewage, desilting will continue.

NITI Aayog will soon rank states based on their efficient management of water resources against a new Composite Water Management Index developed by the government think tank. The new rankings would be declared on January 2018, Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog, said on Wednesday on the sidelines of a day-long national workshop on tracking water management initiatives.
