BBMP to invite bids for 20 more TenderSURE roads

Chief Secretary T M Vijay Bhaskar has ordered the BBMP to call tenders in the next 10 days for developing 20 roads under the TenderSURE project with funds from the Smart Cities Mission. 

This was one of the many orders given to the civic body by the top official at a review meeting on Saturday. 

This apart, commercial establishments in the city could apply online for the trade licence in March 2019. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has streamlined the process and issued a circular to this effect. The online trade licence will be issued for five years, BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said at the meeting that was also attended by officials from related government agencies.

Things BBMP should do 

* Start the process of buying CCTV cameras from the Central government's Nirbhaya Fund.

* Shift slum dwellers from near Bellandur Lake to homes built in Marathahalli by November 10.
