Kataria committee exposes glaring lapses in BBMP 29.7.2015 deccanherald.com
The Kataria Committee that probed lapses and irregularities in Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) since 2008, has exposed glaring errors committed by the Palike. Many irregularities were found in the areas of solid waste management, allotment of work codes for civil work, advertistements, transfer of khatas, revenue recovery, repayment of loans among others. The committee, headed by IAS officer Rajendra Kumar Kataria was formed in February this year. Kataria told Deccan Herald that the lengthy enquiry report running into more than 80 pages was submitted to the state government in March. The committee, after examining the previous Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG report) and Technical Vigilance Cell under Commissioner (TVCC) reports in the past, has concluded that 63 out of 183 vehicle fitness certificates were not renewed for vehicles that transported Municipal Solid Waste ( MSW).

Unending saga of multi scams 29.7.2015 deccanherald.com
When Bangalore municipal corporation limits expanded eight years ago from 200 sq km to 830 sq km, irregularities and embezzlements too increased proportionately. In the last five years, BBMP has become synonymous with scams, the most infamous one being the fake bills scam of Rs 1,439 crore. Yet, instead of punishing the guilty, the accused persons ganged up and made sure that the whistle-blowers were harassed, humiliated in public, forced to leave the institution and take voluntary retirement. Reports by the whistle-blowers with detailed recommendations on how to check such malpractices and disciplinary action against the erring officials and their conduits, were consigned to dustbin. Here's a look at some of the major scams that rocked BBMP in the past: Fake bills scam Contractors submitted fake bills at BBMP, BDA, BWSSB for the same works and drew money from all the three civic agencies in connivance with the officials. When the elected body was not in place in the BBMP between 2007 and 2010, officials ...

KG Road, City's busiest, now a pedestrian's nightmare 29.7.2015 deccanherald.com
The ongoing road work, illegal parking and dumping of construction material on footpaths have turned KG Road into a pedestrian's nightmare. The road, which acts as the link to the Kempegowda Bus Stand and the Bengaluru City railway station, is one of the busiest in the City as hundreds of buses, cabs and auto-rickshaws ply on it, ferrying lakhs of people every day. That the offices of Bengaluru Urban district administration, the BWSSB and the City Civil and Sessions Court are located on KG Road only add to more traffic. Amid the chaotic traffic situation, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is upgrading this road under the TenderSURE project, under which footpaths are given utmost importance. But by the time the project is completed — which may take years — pedestrians will have no option but to walk on the busy road amid a stream of vehicles. While the footpath on the Nabard (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development) office side has been dug up for building a better ...
