Uttarahalli ward advisory committee formed

A 16-member ward advisory committee, comprising the Residents’ Welfare Association, the panchayat members and women representatives, was formed in the Uttarahalli ward.

The committee, an initiative of Namma Bengaluru Foundation and ward corporator Hanumanthaiah, will meet every month to discuss issues faced by the ward residents and come up with solutions. Uttarahalli is the first of the 198 wards in the City to form a ward advisory committee and encourage citizen-centric governance.

Namma Bengaluru Foundation CEO Sridhar Pabbisetty said, “Chronic maladministration and misgovernment will be detrimental to Bengaluru’s future. It is imperative that we citizens working towards a better Bengaluru collectively demand good governance. NBF will strive to ensure functional ward committees and utmost transparency in awarding of contracts and their execution. These meetings with corporators and local residents are a step towards addressing the urban governance deficit that curbs progressive development of the City.”
