CAVA students to paint city walls

CAVA students to paint city walls

 Another reason for giving contract to the CAVA students is based on the rate quoted by them. The students have come forward to do it at Rs 120 for 10 X 10 meters.
Recently, the students painted the walls of Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens to exhibit their talent.

Subsequently, the MCC called for tenders for awarding the said work to be done all over the city. Accordingly, the students too submitted tender. The authorities, after going through all procedures, decided to award the contract to the CAVA students.

On Wednesday, Deputy Commissioner Harsh Gupta accompanied by Mayor Sandesh Swamy and superintending engineer of MCC, saw the wall painting done by the students and appreciated the same. There are twin advantages of wall painting. Firstly, to check disfigurement of walls of heritage buildings and secondly, to provide information regarding important tourist places around Mysore. In Bengaluru, Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike and Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike have got done painting on all the walls (government owned buildings) in the city. A similar thing is being done here too.

The Mayor said no time limit is set for this work as it will be done in a phased manner. Except the walls of the Amba Vilas Palace, all other walls of heritage and public buildings would be utilised for this purpose. The drawings will be mostly of pictures of tourist places nearby Mysore like Srirangapatna, KRS, Belur and Halebeedu. The distance to those places from Mysore too would also mentioned with the painting.
