Manyata Tech Park told to pay Palike Rs 83.45 cr tax arrears 26.5.2016 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike has received a shot in the arm following the Karnataka High Court order on a petition by Manyata Tech Park, justifying the categorisation of buildings based on installations like centrally air-conditioned industrial and technology parks. The court rejected the petition by the tech park and asked it to pay the difference amount of Rs 83.45 crore to the Palike. The tech park had been paying at the rate of Rs eight per square foot whereas it was supposed to pay at Rs 10 per square foot. The BBMP had sent a demand note asking it to pay the difference amount of Rs two since its inception. Contending the fixation of tax at Rs 10 per sqft, the tech park promoters had gone to the court. On Wednesday, the bench of Justice L Narayana Swamy noted that the classification of taxation system based on the facilities was justified and rational. It also complies with the Constitutional provisions, the court had observed. The BBMPs Taxation and Finance Committee chairman M Shivaraju ...

Demolition deferred for want of security 26.5.2016 deccanherald.com
The BBMP officials on Thursday could not demolish the three apartments and a compound wall of a property encroaching upon a road at Uttarahalli, citing lack of police protection.

The three buildings are among the nine apartments for which the final notices for demolition were served on the owners, under Section 462 of the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1978, one-and-a-half years ago. The BBMP Joint Commissioner (Bommanahalli Zone) Muniraju said, "Assistant Executive Engineer (AEE) Narasimha Babu, who has been entrusted with the task of overseeing the demolition of the structures, has expressed his helplessness in absence of police protection."

Muniraju said, "Babu had approached the Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force (BMTF) sleuths, who told him that they could provide security only on Saturday. Given the risk involved, the work cannot be taken up in the absence of police protection."

Untreated sewage threatens future of subsisting lakes 26.5.2016 deccanherald.com
Mostly encroached and sewage-fed, Bengaluru's still subsisting 837 lakes manifest a disturbing narrative of poor governance. This is evident in the fact that Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) is unable to stop inflow of untreated sewage to the water bodies even in core areas, where sanitary network is in place. Dirty to the core, it's not just the lakes in the 110 villages and the erstwhile city municipal corporation areas that were added to BBMP that are sewage-fed, the condition of lakes is no different in city centre which has an underground drainage (UGD) system. The latest fish kill in Ulsoor lake and the condition of Kempambudhi lake and Sankey tank indicate the same. When contacted, BWSSB official said that work on replacement and rehabilitation of the old main sewer network in the core city areas has been taken up under the Environmental Action Plan (EAP). "While 80% of the work taken up in the first phase is complete, replacement of old pipelines covering another 70 kms would be ...
