Right to Services aka Sakala - live from April!


So Right to Services, or timebound delivery of services to citizens goes live in state of Karnataka from Monday, April 2.  What services are we guaranteed to get? Well, go to this website, go to "Services", pick your department to see what services are "in scope" ( I went there, clicked on BBMP, here is the list:

How far can Rs.2/- take you?

Public Transport

How far can Rs.2/- go?

In these days is Rs. Two worth anything?

If you want to get into a BMTC bus and get down at the next stop it costs Rs.4.

A cup of coffee or tea costs anything above Rs.8.

Auto fare is min. Rs. 20 and Metro Rs.10.

Kerbstone painting to enforce roadside parking?


Every drop of paint used on or around the road should have some purpose, should communicate something to the road users. If you look at the kerbstones, you would find a lot of paint wasted in creating the black/white or black/yellow stripes. As far as I know, the black/yellow or black/white paint patterns don't communicate anything to road users or drivers.

Orion Mall - Traffic planning

TrafficTraffic jams

Some good work being done here proactively by citizens of Malleshwaram around the new mall thats coming up in the area... 


Some preliminary problems that we saw at Orion mall:

Kannur-Bangalore super metro rail

Metro Rail

Constructing about 200 overhead railway line from Kannapuram straightly to  Banglore would be an ever profitable expansion of Railway traffic and a great boon. comment guidelines
