‘Cable cars can do  wonders for Nandi Hills’

The government should save the heritage of Nandi Hills, which have cultural, historical and ecological importance, according to Dr M K Ramesh, Professor of Law, NLSIU.

Cable cars, ropeway, improved public transport facility from the foothills to the summit and heritage tag: these are some of the recommendations of National Law School of India University (NLSIU) students to the state government for the development of Nandi Hills.

In a report titled, “The Conservation and Sustainability of Nandi Hill Ecosystem”, the students have also suggested the creation of a “Nandi Ecosystem Conservation and Development Authority” and demanded a “heritage tag” for holistic development.  The report seeks an annual budgetary allocation from the government, exclusively for the purpose of upkeep, maintenance, management, development and conservation of the ecosystem.

Dr M K Ramesh, Professor of Law, NLSIU, said the government should save the heritage of Nandi Hills, which have cultural, historical and ecological importance. “We have such rich places of importance but are doing very little to protect it,” he said. “Cable car can do wonders for Nandi Hills but the government is not doing much. The general public can easily be educated about the importance of this location.” 

The report has already been handed over to the Chikkaballapur district in-charge minister H N Shivashankar Reddy.
