When Ravindranath first saw the irregularities, he started investigating and found that the buildings did not have occupancy certificates . "But the trade licences were given by the BBMP's health department. When I informed the authorities, they were not bothered. So I took up the issue through RTI and approached the KIC. Following the KIC order in May 2007, the three commercial complexes have been closed down and sealed," he explains. For more

Very well done, would like to meet the man.

I suspect same people or group must have been behind closure of a fast fod joint near a park in Jayanagar more than an year ago. I heard the food-chain in question (from the owner, second hand), that he lost several lakhs in the process. I haven't checked if the food joint is back now or not.
