Multi-crore homes, undrinkable water 16.3.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Colaba, Churchgate, Mantralaya, Cuffe Parade, Bandra (West) – these are some of the most sought-after addresses in Mumbai, with real estate prices rising higher than the high-rises that constitute the city skyline. And yet, these areas do not even get that basic amenity of urban life – clean, potable water. A report by the BMC’s hydraulic engineering department for the period April 2016-February 2017 reveals that many areas in the city continue to receive contaminated water, with the highest percentage of ‘unfit’ samples being collected from Colaba, Churchgate, Bandra West, Chembur, Kurla, Naigaon, Masjid Bunder and Mulund. This is despite the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) – which releases about 3,700 million litres of ‘pure’ water from its Bhandup Centre daily – sanctioning Rs 1592.92 crore in its 2016-17 budget for water supply projects and hydraulic engineering for the period. The BMC’s water control and health department randomly collected total 33,425 water samples across the city. Of ...

Siddaramaiah eyes voters with budget 15.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has come out with a host of populist measures and doled out freebies keeping the next year's Assembly elections in view, while being cautious enough not to burden the common man with any major levies. Siddaramaiah, who presented the state budget proposals for 2017-18 in the Assembly on Wednesday, tried to explain the financial constraints his government faces because of a sluggish economy. But it appears this has not stopped him from announcing populist programmes aimed at wooing both rural masses and the urban poor. He, however, belied the hopes of farmers as well as opposition parties on their demand to waive farm loans. He has also not announced any major infrastructure project, especially for Bengaluru. In his last full-fledged budget before Karnataka goes to polls in 2018, the chief minister has made it a point to continue to please the Ahinda community (Kannada acronym for backward classes, Dalits and minorities), considered to be his major vote bank. The total subsidy ...

When every drop counts 15.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As Bengalureans gear up for a scorching summer, a major problem staring them in the face is the shortage of water. For most households that don't have Cauvery water supply, water tankers are the only solution but the arbitrary pricing by tanker operators has left a lot of people worried. Some of the areas that regularly depend on water tankers are Thanisandra, Bommasandra, Sarjapur Road, Marathahalli, Whitefield, K R Puram, Horamavu and Bagalur. The price of tankers with a capacity of 4,000 to 7,000 litres is anywhere betweenRs 400 to Rs 800 per tanker. Rashmi Murthy, a resident of Kothanur, says that she is forced to buy water at least three times a week. "The water tankers don't come as soon as I call them. So I have to make sure that I call them well in advance. Also, there is no fixed rate and we are forced to pay whatever rate they ask for," says Rashmi. Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) has its own fleet of water tankers but their limited numbers make it difficult for them to reach ...
