Audit report unearths scam worth Rs 22 crore in BWSSB 30.11.2014 deccanherald.com
The audit report of the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) reeks of graft, bringing to the fore financial irregularities to the tune of Rs 22.43 crore in 12 sub-divisions from the erstwhile City Municipal Council (CMC) areas that have been brought under BBMP limits. In the year-long audit conducted by the Financial Adviser and Chief Accounts Officer of the board, it was found that the amount paid by consumers towards beneficiary capital contribution (BCC) as part of the Greater Bangalore Water and Sanitation Project (GBWASP) for new water and sanitary connections, was not reflected in the board's bank account. Not just this. As many as 159 officers working as assistant executive engineers, assistant engineers, junior engineers and other workers were involved in transactions that just did not seem to tally with accounts. The board has already suspended 10 employees and issued show cause notices to 25 others, BWSSB officials told Deccan Herald. Irregularities have occurred in many categories ...

State govt allows commercial operations at Jog Falls 7.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The State government has allowed commercial development at the famous Jog Falls in Shimoga district as part of a project to create artificial waterfalls there throughout the year. To make the project feasible, the Tourism Department will allow a company or a consortium to take up the artifical falls project and provide facilities to tourists, including setting up hotels and restaurants. It has recently called a global tender, inviting expressions of interest from private companies to take up the project on a Public Private Partnership basis. The government wants to prevent a repeat of 2006, when eight companies, including Siemens and Gammon India, backed out of a tender after finding that the project's implementation was not financially viable. After the project failed to take off, the then government had refused to allow commercial operations at Jog Falls as it met with opposition and wanted promoters to recover the cost through entry fees collected from tourists. Normally, the Jog Falls dry up after ...

Caught between all-consuming floods & angry locals 12.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Crisis throws up many heroes, but on some occasions villains too crop up. Instances have been reported from flood-hit Jammu and Kashmir, where tourists trying to get out of the marooned valley were badly heckled by local residents. "It was a nightmare. When we are all proceeding towards Raj Bhavan in Srinagar, seeking help, a group of Kashmiris blocked us and tore our clothes. They questioned us as to why we were escaping when the State is suffering." This was the tale narrated by Girish, a resident of Bangalore who was among a 20-member team which was stuck for five days in the rain-ravaged State. "As rescue operations are getting delayed, restless local residents from Srinagar are losing patience and expressing anguish towards tourists," Girish, who returned to Delhi on Thursday, lamented. A private company employee from Basaveshwara Nagar, Girish came to Kashmir along with his wife, children and parents on September 6. As they were staying at a hotel close to the picturesque Dal Lake, there was ...

BWSSB billing mess: Consumers levied BCC charges again 28.8.2014 deccanherald.com
Stumped by their first-ever water bills, BWSSB consumers in the City's new BBMP areas are crying foul. Reason: Having promptly paid the Beneficiary Capital Contribution (BCC) to the Board, fixed the meters and got their connections legalised last year, they are now being levied the same charge a second time. It is now learnt the double billing has everything to do with a major scam unearthed in the BWSSB's Greater Bangalore Water and Sanitation Project (GBWASP) in January 2014. The Board's audit section had found that two staff members had siphoned off Rs 10 lakh by issuing fake bank acknowledgements (challans) to unsuspecting consumers who had paid the BCC in the KR Puram division. The BCC was not deposited in the BWSSB's bank account. It was feared that several crores of rupees may have been unaccounted for. But the BWSSB is now not sure whether a consumer's challan is fake or real. So, it has done the easiest thing: Include the BCC in every bill under the head "arrears." When contacted, BWSSB ...

She was living with her parents for the past one year. Expecting a few lakhs Murthy, a farmer, had invested some money in a private company after selling his land.
