STP battle leaves officials in a bind 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Confusion reigns among officials a day after the government said it would relax rules making sewage treatment plants compulsory for apartment complexes. Minister K J George announced the suspension of the penalty clause on Thursday, but officials said they would have to follow contrary instructions from the National Green Tribunal. George, who handles the Bengaluru development and town planning portfolios, said contentious rules on STPs would be amended soon, and the BBMP would pass a resolution adopting them. Following a hue and cry over retrospective implementation of the STP rule, George said it would only be implemented prospectively. Older apartments, represented by the Bangalore Apartments Federation (BAF), had taken to the streets to oppose mandatory STPs for them. Apartment complexes with 20 houses or less, which have already linked their sewers to underground drainage, are exempted from installing compulsory STPs, George said. About 50+ blocks Reiterating what DH reported on December 14, BWSSB ...

Bhendi Bazaar: A model makeover 15.12.2017 DNA: Opinion
Bohri Mohalla is a nugget of heritage and culture nestled in the crowded market area of Bhendi Bazaar. If you have ever visited this neighbourhood and not devoured the succulent kebabs and tikkas of Haji Tikka Corner, your trip to this part of the city would be considered incomplete. Established in 1989, it is currently owned by Abdul Samad Qureshi, who is suffering a customer loss of nearly 50 per cent, thanks to the redevelopment project. Bhendi Bazaar, spread over a 16.5-acre land comprising more than 250 buildings, is undergoing one of the biggest redevelopment projects in India. The project which is being carried out by Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust (SBUT) has divided Bhendi Bazaar in nine clusters. Located in the heart of south Mumbai, Bhendi Bazaar is a shopper’s paradise. From carpets to hardware and antique pieces, the place has something to offer everyone. For the less-initiated, the Bhendibazaar gharana is one of the vocal gharanas of Indian classical music, which originated in Bhendi Bazaar ...

BWSSB will spare most apartments from fine for not possessing OC 12.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The BWSSB would ask for Occupancy Certificate to residences with five kitchens and commercial areas with more than 300 square metres, sparing a large number of flats from penalty. The Board has been charging a fine on those flats that obtain water connection without producing OC. With the penalty hurting a large number of residents, the issue was raised at a special council meeting of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to which BWSSB Chairman Tushar Girinath was invited. "According to Karnataka Municipal Act, we are supposed to give OCs for residential spaces with more than five kitchens, irrespective of the floor on which they are located," BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said. "OCs is given for commercial spaces when they are bigger than 300 sq meters."

However, at ...

Mayor told to get STP rule withdrawn 11.12.2017 deccanherald.com
The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) came under attack from the members of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) for the second time in as many months. At the monthly council meeting on Monday, members cutting across party lines criticised the BWSSB for making the installation of sewage treatment plants (STPs) mandatory for existing apartment complexes with more than 50 units built prior to February 2016 and 20 units for those built post that period. In November, members criticised the BWSSB for penalising its consumers who failed to produce the building occupancy certificate (OC). On Monday, the members urged Mayor R Sampath Raj to get the BWSSB to withdraw its mandatory order on the STPs. Apartment dwellers are protesting against the boards decision claiming that the older apartment complexes do not have proper infrastructure to install the STPs. They also said that sewage lines have been connected to the internal drainage system. The opposition party leaders complained that the ...

HC stays STP rule for old apartments 11.12.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The high court stayed the implementation of the BWSSB regulation that mandates the installation of sewage treatment plants and dual piping systems in existing buildings with 50 or more apartments. Justice A S Bopanna passed the interim order while hearing a batch of petitions filed by the Raheja Residency Apartment Owners apex body and 12 other petitioners, comprising various apartment owners associations in the city. The bench observed that the structural integrity of the buildings has to be taken into account as most of them are nearly 10 to 30 years old. According to the petitioners, the regulation is illegal, arbitrary and unconstitutional. The petition states that the regulation violates the directions issued by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board, wherein it is the responsibility of the urban and local bodies to set up a system for sewage and waste disposal of the local area. The petitioners stated that the BWSSB is passing on this ...
