State invokes ESMA to check garbage crisis 23.9.2017 deccanherald.com
In the wake of garbage contractors threatening to disrupt waste collection in Bengaluru, the state government on Saturday invoked ESMA, prohibiting pourakarmikas and other staff from going on strike for the next one year. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah directed the Urban Development Department to invoke Section 3 of the Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA), which empowers the state government to crack down on protests and strikes that disrupt public services. All pourakarmikas, auto tippers, compact loaders and drivers employed directly by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) or through contractors cannot strike work for the next one year. The ESMA provision covers both pourakarmikas under contract as well as those on the civic body's rolls, BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad clarified. The move comes months ahead of the 2018 Assembly elections and at a time when the state government and the BBMP are facing the heat from the public over the recent rain-related chaos. A garbage crisis now, in ...

In homage to water... 23.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The sprawling garden was in full bloom that swayed and sighed in the soft afternoon breeze, enticing us to take a leisurely stroll. But it was the 11th century Rani-ki-vav (Queen's stepwell) within the premises that had drawn us to Patan in Gujarat, and we could not wait to explore it. Recognised as the UNESCO World Heritage site in 2014, it's the finest example of all the stepwells in India. Patan has today become synonymous with Rani-ki-vav and Patola saris. However, the ruins scattered within the remnants of its fortified walls also give a glimpse of the grandeur and glory it once enjoyed under the 600-year-rule of the Chavda and the Solanki rulers between the 8th and 14th centuries. The old city of Patan, also known as Anhilwad Patan (or Anhilpur Patan), seems to have completely vanquished with time. Founded by Vanraj Chavda in 745 AD as the capital of Gujarat, it reached its zenith under the Solanki rulers Bhimdeva, Karnadeva and Siddharaja Jayaimha. Its fate was sealed by successive invasions and ...

Call against compulsory sewage plants in existing apartments 23.9.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Federation of Apartment Associations Bengaluru (FAAB) has criticised the diktat on the compulsory installation of sewage treatment plants (STPs) in old apartments with 50 flats and more. In March, the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) took the decision on the compulsory installation of STPs and set aSeptember 9 deadline. However, 912 apartments in Bengaluru are yet to instal the STPs. The BWSSB will fine them 25% of water charges now, 50% after three months and 100% after nine months. The water board has extended the deadline to December 31, 2017. The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) is also issuing notices to apartments that it will ask Bescom to stop the power supply if they do not instal the STPs, C S V Prasad, president, FAAB, said. FAAB wants the BWSSB to limit the rule to upcoming apartments and has sought an exemption for existing apartments that lack proper infrastructure to build an STP. "New apartments can design and implement these STPs but not the old ones ...
