Fix reasonable fee

The BWSSB has fixed fee for Cauvery IV stage new water connections on the basis of the dimension of the sites.

The Board has stipulated Rs 5,000 as fee for sites measuring 30x40 sq ft and Rs 10,000 for sites measuring 60x40 sq ft. However, the BWSSB engineers are demanding Rs 10,000 for sites measuring 30x42 sq ft.

The boundaries of the sites are not clearly marked in Bangalore and the demand of the BWSSB engineers is unjustified. The authorities concerned should set the norms reasonably.

Garbage woes continue in City

The vacant sites at seventh, eighth main of JP Nagar third phase and the ninth cross of Double Roadare being used to dump garbage. Truck loads of demolition debris is often disposed on these sites.

Even though the trucks by the City Muncipal Council often collects the dumped garbage, by a major quantity still remains undisposed here.  Cattle, rodents and stray dogs are a common sight here, thereby aggravating the problem.

The beauty of the place is ruined by the filth around and the unbearable stench along with the threat of epidemics. The authorities should take the problem into consideration and look for measured that would collect garbage on a regular basis.

Waste meterial has been dumped for more than two months on the junction of second, third Cross and second main at Ward number 125 in Saraswathinagar. This junction is prone to accidents and dumping has created more problems. Moreover the BBMP removed the silt from drainage and dumped on the road at second main last Friday.
BBMP is requested to remove this and take necessary action at the earliest.

The vacant site No.25 and 26 located in NGEF Layout, Sanjayanagar  is a regular garbage dump of residents for three years. Repeated requests to the BBMP Sanjayanagar Ward office to clear the garbage has failed.

The vacant site is also an open toilet for vagabonds.  The foul smell from the vacant site is unbearable and street dogs and cattle add to the nuisance. The land owners of the site are unknown as the property has changed hands twice. The BBMP is requested to clear the garbage and also, penalise the land owner for raise a compound wall to his site.

The  eastern entrance to Madhavan park in Jayanagar first block is filled with garbage and filth to such an extent that the stench emanating  from it deprives walkers of fresh air. Garbage is dumped all over the streets and with the stray dogs are frequent in the park.

The surroundings make the place even messy. Even one week after the strike by the pourakarmikas has been called off, the garbage has been left uncleared, which increase the threat of mosquitoes and diseases.

The garbage collected from around the first Block East and the Mountain Street apparently is strewn all over the place.

It is high time that the concerned authorities look into the matter and clear the garbage at the earliest and ensure that in future the surroundings of the park are kept clean and tidy so that the people who frequent the park are saved from the unhygienic and untidy environment. Inside the park, recently they laid some new benches  benches but the rubble is still lying inside making the place look shabby.  Will the concerned look into it and solve the matter at the earliest?

City service to KR Puram rly station

OMBR (Bhuvanagiri) and surrounding layouts have no direct access to KR Puram Railway Station, Tin factory, Baiyappanahalli, Indiranagar, Chinmaya Mission Hospital, Aeronautical Development Authority (ADA), Thippasandra Cross, Jeevan Bima Nagar are located in the area.

Access to NAL at Bima Nagar will be an added advantage to the traveling public.  The proposed bus route covering about 10 km would be very viable and popular. An action requested at the earliest.


Parking of unused cars

Unused and junk cars are parked in the ‘no parking’ area on Coles Road in Frazer Town traffic police station limits, causing inconvenience to motorists and pedestrians. Anti-social elements are taking shelter in the vehicles during night. The police may take appropriate action to check the menace.

Enforce no parking rule on Rustam Bagh Road

The Rustam Bagh Main Road is narrow and hence the traffic police barred parking along the entire stretch of the road - from the entrance from Old Airport Road.
However, vehicles are being parked on both sides of the road in clear violation of the ban and it has become a great nuisance for pedestrians and motorists.
Though traffic police slap fine on errant motorists, it has not helped much in curbing parking. The traffic police should step up their vigilance and ensure that the road is free of illegal parking all the 24 hours by posting personnel to enforce  'no parking' on the Road.

Nandidurga Road in bad shape

Nandidurga Road is in very bad shape for a long time and requires immediate resurfacing. Recent digging by BWSSB for pipeline work all along the length of road has brought more misery to motorists and even worse to the residents.

Noise and air pollution has wrecked havoc on the health of senior citizens in the locality. Repeated requests to the BBMP for repairing the road have not elicited any reply. Will the Palike commissioner take immediate action?

Illegal construction blocking road

The road in front of my house in Hanumanthanagar has been blocked by illegal construction for the last 20 years.  The local corporator K Chandrashekhar, during his visit to the area six months ago had stated that the road would be cleared in 45 days but nothing has been done till this day. Apart from this, the milkmen in Hanumanthanagar leave their cows to road after milking them. The cows end up on the blocked road littering the public place. Will the authorities concerned look into the problem?
