BBMP has apparently become "unmanagable". Its another matter they are also broke & also a den for the corrupt. Let me start with a statement which can be disproved. BBMP doesnt need to be split it instead needs to give up the "managing" part to the wards.
Why do we have wards?
Why do they mean nothing to us other than host BBMP engineers who have no accountability and accomplish nothing?
Why do the suport services like police, fire, electricity, water etc straddle boundaries that have no corelation to the ward?
Why are the ward committes dysfunctional?
What are the liabilities applicable to either BBMP or support services for deriliction of duties?
Yes its all about the ward. To me having a ward which has its own budget made by the ward committee and transparent P&L and has self contained support services is the way to go. Can we make the ward truly functional and do the managing then we dont have to worry about the charade of cutting things up like mysore pak and focus on outcomes instead? What are the challenges in making each of these happen?
