Citizens protestmove to demolish Janatha Bazaar 11.4.2018 deccanherald.com
AT least 100 people came together on Wednesday to urge authorities to save the historic Janatha Bazaar on KG Road. The citizens, along with members of the CRISP Foundation, staged a protest to create awareness about the need to preserve the 83-year-old building. Recently, the Public Works Department branded the Janatha Bazaar "very dangerous" for human occupation and planned to raze the structure immediately after the state Assembly elections. Many shopkeepers complained that the authorities have installed huge barricades, blanking out parts of the pre-Independence building from public view. Kumar Jahgirdrar, president of CRISP Foundation, said: "The water and electricity connections in the building have been cut-off. This has caused a lot of inconvenience to shopkeepers and women, and the officials are harassing the locals and preventing them from entering the building so that they can start the demolition to construct a concrete jungle." The activists see this as a clear sign that the building will be ...

Slow pace of civil works in Kempegowda Layout irks site owners, officials 1.4.2018 deccanherald.com
Those coveting a site to build a dream house at Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Layout in West Bengaluru need to put a freeze on the process as civil works in the area are advancing at a snails pace. The delay is largely blamed on the paucity of labourers and lack of facilities. While workers usually put up makeshift homes near construction sites, they are currently taking a long time to build the labour camps at Kempegowda Layout to ensure they have adequate facilities. Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) officials said works such as road-laying are 80% through, while works concerning water, electricity and sanitation have just begun. Despite the two-year deadline set by the BDA to complete the civil works, it could not meet the timeframe passed in August 2017. "It could take some time to complete the works as the housing colony is at a distance and the workers are first constructing amenities for themselves to stay," said a BDA official. This has irked officials and citizens wanting to occupy the allotted ...

Permits for 5,000 e-rickshaws, 25,000 CNG autos in 5 years 27.3.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The Transport Department will issue permits for 5,000 e-rickshaws in an effort to encourage electric vehicles in the city, besides allowing another 25,000 auto-rickshaws over the next five years to cater to the rising floating population. The move comes days after the department announced that auto-rickshaw permits will be linked to Aadhaar through the new e-permits in the coming weeks. "We suspect that more than 25,000 auto-rickshaws in the city do not have a valid permit. In the new regime, auto-rickshaws without e-permits will be seized," an official in the regional transport office (RTO) said. Tuesdays notification increasing the auto-rickshaw quota for Bengaluru from 1.25 lakh to 1.55 lakh, however, comes with several conditions.
