Holiday rush: private bus operators fleece commuters 25.9.2017 Deccan Herald - City
As the holiday season begins, private bus operators are fleecing commuters as the transport department continues to sit on a proposal to cap fares of buses plying on city, mofussil areas and inter-city routes. For private buses, long weekends and festival holidays are lucrative as they can double and triple the fares. The usual sleeper class fare to Hubballi from Bengaluru ranges between Rs 600 and Rs 2,000. But it goes up to Rs 4,000 on festival days. "Those who do not reserve tickets are at the mercy of the staff operating the bus, who jack up fares depending on how desperate you are to get a ticket. The government rules exist only on paper," said Ishwar Heggeri, a computer operator in a private company who travels to Dharwad twice a month. Stage carriage permits allow buses to pick up passengers from different places between the origin and destination points. Though the transport department has capped the fares of all city and intercity buses by notifying fare caps in 2013, no private bus follows the ...

Politicians find place in Smart Cities project execution 21.9.2017 deccanherald.com
Smart cities projects are yet to take off, but elected representatives have managed to lobby their way in through a committee that will "guide and monitor" the progress of the already-delayed Smart Cities mission. Seven cities - Bengaluru, Belagavi, Davangere, Hubballi-Dharwad, Shivamogga, Mangaluru and Tumakuru - have been chosen to receive Rs 500 crore each from the Centre under the Smart Cities mission. Except Bengaluru that was shortlisted in June this year, the other six cities were chosen by the Centre almost a year ago. It is only now that the Urban Development Department (UDD) has issued an order delegating decision-making powers to special purpose vehicles (SPV) that will implement the project. The Smart City SPV for Bengaluru is yet to receive a Cabinet approval. Now, each city will have a 'Smart City Implementation and Review Committee' comprising the MP, MLAs, leader of the Opposition party in the municipal corporation, the mayor among others. Chaired by the minister for Urban Development and ...
