Aug 28 is BBMP poll deadline: SEC 4.7.2015 deccanherald.com
State Election Commissioner (SEC) P N Srinivasachary said the election process for the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) should be completed by August 28. Talking to Deccan Herald, Srinivasachary said the Supreme Court has left no ambiguity regarding the polls and it has made it clear to complete the process by August 28, which includes finishing the counting process and declaring the results.

Composting wet waste: Nandidurga Extension residents show the way 4.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Not depending much on Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), the residents of Nandidurga Extension in the City have taken up the task of composting the wet waste at their homes, all by themselves. About 150 individual houses at 7th Cross, Nandidurga Extension have adopted the three-pot-system, a home composting method with the help of a City-based waste management company, Daily Dump. While some of them are practising composting method for more than five years, others have recently adopted taking a cue from their neighbours. "I have been doing composting for the last ten years and one of my relatives staying close by has also started using it. All we generate now is plastic, waste water and paper which we hand over to the Palike. The 7th Cross that used to be filthy earlier is now clean as most of them have turned to composting," said the residents of Nandidurga Extension. Speaking about how the three-pot-system works, Itika Gupta, a member from Daily Dump said: "The system involves the usage of ...

Traffic troubles unlimited, as unruly motorists rule streets here 4.7.2015 deccanherald.com
BTM Layout, the constituency which has eight wards comes under the Bengaluru district in-charge minister Ramalinga Reddy and has to ideally set an example to other areas in City. But like any other high profile area, these wards too are reeling under the same problems faced across the City. Located on the Central Silk Board Road, BTM Layout has the highest density of traffic in the City and also records high levels of air pollution. Despite the widening of roads and a flyover to commute towards Hosur Road, the junction just seem to get worse by the day. Jagadeesh, a techie who crosses the Silk Board junction to travel to his office, calls the traffic nightmarish even as the police stand helplessly. The traffic police, he says, should make this junction signal-free. Vehicles waiting for a green signal at this spot also adds to all that air pollution. Another major problem faced by BTM Layout ward residents is the total lack of lane discipline among motorists, especially the two-wheeler ...

Government set to reintroduce Bill for splitting Palike in session 4.7.2015 deccanherald.com
The State government is all set to pursue the controversial Karnataka Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2015, to pave way for restructuring of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike, in the ongoing legislature session. The Karnataka Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2015, was tabled in the last legislature session. The bill has provisions for creating two or more municipal bodies in place of the BBMP. While the bill was passed in the Legislative Assembly, it was referred to a select committee in the Legislative Council. The 13-member committee is headed by minister SRPatil. It has been given the task of studying the merits and demerits of the bill. The panel, constituted in April, was given three months to submit the report. Now, according to sources in the government, it may reintroduce the bill in the Assembly when the session begins in Bengaluru from July 13. Due to its numerical strength, the bill would sail through the Assembly. However, the government is not sure what would be the fate ...

Illegalities are the norm here 3.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Right beneath a high tension wire, toddlers sing rhymes with their teacher at Hosakerehalli ward under Padmanabhanagar Assembly constituency. They are unaware that the school's position is not in conformity with the law and their lives may be at risk if any untoward incident takes place. If the nursery school under the high tension wire outrages anyone, there are many multi-storey independent houses in and around Hosakerehalli ward with their roof barely five feet away from a HT line. These dangerous spots are easily accessible to anyone, including children. Apparently, the struggle for a roof and survival is even more higher than the high tension wire. The Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited Director (Transmission) S Sumanth affirms that no construction should happen beneath the high tension wire. But in Hosakerehalli, there is hardly any place beneath the HT line where residential and commercial structures have not come up. Padmanabhanagar Assembly constituency, represented ...

A chaotic mix of mounting vehicular traffic, haphazard parking, encroached footp 3.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Once a spacious and serene residential locality, Vijayanagar Assembly constituency is now bustling with activities. Increasing vehicular traffic and unregulated commercial development have become the bane of residents here. Almost all eight Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) wards have witnessed rapid commercial development over the last few years. A majority of the residential properties along the main roads has now become commercial. Showrooms, medical shops, boutiques, salons...assortment of other commercial activities have cropped up on all main roads. This has resulted in increase in traffic volume. In the absence of designated parking space in any of the wards and blatant violation of basement parking rules, vehicles are parked on footpaths and roads. To avoid heavy traffic on main roads, two-wheelers use residential bylanes. Hawkers and roadside eateries occupying the footpath space have only added to the problem. But neither the BBMP nor the traffic police has taken any measure to some ...

BBMP elections: BJP 'surprised' at SC order, JD(S) 'saw it coming' 3.7.2015 deccanherald.com
Having received a breather from the Supreme Court, the State government, which is reluctant to face the BBMP elections now, would push trifurcation issue and delay BBMP polls by at least two years, sources in the government said.

Working out the modalities of trifurcation, on the size and extent of the proposed civic bodies and bringing in amendment to the Karnataka Municipal Act among other things are the grounds for the Congress to seek two-year extension for scheduling the BBMP polls. Bengaluru Urban District Minister Ramalinga Reddy told Deccan Herald, "The division of the BBMP was always on the cards and the proposal is pending before the State Legislative Council. Once it is approved by the Council, the Assembly will not take more than a week to give its nod," said Reddy.

The government will also wait for the final report of the BBMP Restructuring Committee and will take a decision "whatever is in the best interest of Bengaluru," Reddy added.
