People's Problems

Clear garbage dumps

The vacant site on 4th main, 1st stage of Postal Colony, Sanjaynagar has become a garbage dump for the residents. There is foul smell emanating from the place which has turned a breeding ground for mosquitoes. The BBMP is requested to do the needful at the earliest.

The vacant site (number 60) on 4th cross, 2nd stage, Indiranagar and the one on 10th ‘A’ main, 1st stage, Indiranagar (Near Indiranagar Metro station) has turned into a garbage dump yard. It has become a breeding place for mosquitoes and rodents. The place also stinks as it is used as an open toilet. 

The Palike is requested to clear the garbage at the earliest.

The vacant sites on the 3rd and 4th main roads of Sanjaynagar have turned garbage dump yards and a breeding place for mosquitoes. The resident request the BBMP to clear the garbage at least once in a week


Irregular water supply

Residents of 1st cross, Kanakanagar, RT Nagar face acute shortage of drinking water. Cauvery water is supposed to be supplied every alternate day for one hour. But the valveman does not adhere to the schedule.  He opens and closes the valve as per his whims and fancies (once in three or four days with low pressure). The people are forced to buy from private water tankers . Complaints to the concerned have yielded no result.

The residents of Sanjaynagar (3rd and 4th main road - near Daffodils School) are not getting Cauvery water for the last six months. There is no supply even through water tankers. The authorities concerned must do the needful at the earliest.


The residents of 15th Main, Hongasandra, Begur Main Road have been deprived of Cauvery water supply, though the pipelines were laid and water meters installed two years ago.  The people in the area request the authorities to provide water supply immediately.

Prevent water misuse

There is rampant misuse of drinking water supplied round-the-clock in the public tap on Velumudaliar Street (on Kamaraj Road cross, near Velumudaliar dispensary).  People use the water to wash their vehicles and cattle. Utensils used in marriages are brought here and washed with water from the public tap. The BWSSB is requested to restrict the water supply to prevent its misuse.

Traffic bottleneck

The 80 feet ring road (near Nagarabhavi BDA Complex) has become a traffic bottleneck due to the huge increase in the number of vehicles. It is very difficult to cross the road even during the day, especially at the Unity Lifeline Hospital/Coffee Day junction. There is no speed breaker on either side of the road. It has become difficult for vehicles to take a u-turn at the junction. The authorities concerned must take remedial action.

Curb nefarious activities

The covered drain next to house number 51 on Viviani Road in Richards Town is being used as a thoroughfare which is all right. 

However, the residents object to nefarious activities like gambling and alcoholism by miscreants there. The place is also being used for burning old clothes and garbage dumping.  Bringing the matter to the notice of the local MLA and sanitary inspectors of BBMP has not helped. Also, the pavements on the stretch of the road from Adams Marriage Hall are in bad shape due to patchy work  by BWSSB.

Punish graffiti writers

BBMP seems to have softened its stand against those defacing the city walls. Posters and graffiti have defaced almost all underpasses and walls in the city and even Metro Rail pillars. 

BMRCL authorities do not seem to be bothered about this issue. Those disfiguring public places must be brought to book at the earliest and fines should be imposed on them.

Monkey menace

There has been a menace of monkeys, which stay on the trees near Manjushree Wine Store and Polar Wines on 7th cross of Ramachandrapura main road - near the bus stop, for the past one month. The BBMP authorities must take steps at the earliest.

Clear stagnant water

The residents of Thyagarajnagar want to bring to the notice of the authorities the condition of the roads in the area, following the drainage reconstruction work three months ago. 

Water stagnation in the area has led to the breeding of mosquitoes and this may lead to the spread of deadly diseases. 

Parking and riding of vehicles has become a big problem here. 

The people in the locality request the authorities concerned to ensure that the problem of water stagnation is attended to and the road cleared for smooth flow of traffic.

Bus connectivity needed

For the residents of Sanjaynagar, there are no direct buses to Rajajinagar via Malleswaram for the past 20 years. 

One has to change two or three buses to reach Malleswaram. Recently a new route (K-2) was introduced to Rajajinagar from Yeshwantpur. But this service is highly unreliable as far as timings are concerned. Will the BMTC do the needful at the earliest?

The BMTC authorities are requested to run a Big-10 or any other bus from NICE road/Kanakapura road junction to Brigade Road via Konanakunte, Banashankari TTMC, Sangam Circle, Jayanagar 5th Block, Jayanagar 9th Block bus stand, Jayanagar 4th ‘T’ block bus depot, Carmel Convent, Sagar Hospital (Tilaknagar), Dairy Circle, Bannerghatta Road, Hosur Luskar Road, Brigade/MG Road (or Ulsoor/Shivajinagar).  

This will help students of these schools and colleges. This can also convenience office-goers on MG Road. 


There is hardly any bus service from Philomena's Hospital to Shivajinagar from 1 pm to 2 pm on Saturdays. With Saturdays being half-a-days for many companies and schools (where work gets over by 1.30 pm or 2 pm), there are few bus services, making the wait very long for buses towards Shivajinagar. This is to request BMTC to set right the anomaly.

Earlier, bus numbers 11, 12, 13, 14 and 21 plied from Banashankari to City Market, Kempegowda Bus Station, Shivajinagar, Malleswaram 18th Cross and Mathikere, respectively, with a frequency of 20 to 30 minutes. Of late, after the completion of the ring road construction towards ITPL and Whitefield, new routes have been introduced catering to IT professionals. But people wait for hours together for buses towards Kempegowda Bus Station, Shivajinagar, Malleswaram 18th Cross and Mathikere, which are overcrowded. BMTC must do the needful.

Repair road, resume bus service

The BWSSB started laying a water pipe on the stretch from Sonal Garments to Iyer Polytechnic at Laggere in December 2011. 

The work was completed in the second week of March, 2012. But they have not bothered to restore the road. This led the BMTC authorities to suspend services on this stretch. The residents request the BWSSB authorities to immediately repair the one-km stretch from Sonal Garments to Iyer Polytechnic.

Demolish wall, save lives
The abandoned building on survey number 16/2, Allahalli village (beside Manjunath Medical Store) on Anjanapura Main Road (Anjanapura ward - number 196) may prove to be a disaster for neighbours with its 10-foot wall developing cracks. The wall may collapse any time and the threat is greater in the rainy season. BBMP is requested to take immediate action to bring down the building and prevent untoward incidents.
