Prices do what we can't other wise do!

Best solution to namma trafficu!

Private transport

Race Course to shift to Chikkjala

The Race Course (BTC) might get land and some tax concessions to shift to Chikkajala (on Bellary Road) toward the Airport.

This is a wonderful piece of news and amazing if it indeed makes the Turf Club move.

FAA downgrades Indian Civil Aviation

Sankey Road to lose trees


The Arterial Sankey Road, from Cauvery Theatre Junction to Yeshwantpur Circle Junction is going to be widened and going to lose all the green cover it has.

My experience with the subregistrar - lessons and tips

We the proud citizens of Namma Bengaluru, arguably having a higher Household Income on an average compared to the rest of India cry a lot for infrastructure.

Taking Rain Water Harvesting more seriously


It is good that the BWSSB has finally realised that only about 50% of it's current water supply is metered and billed for. It is equally good to note that it has come down heavily on IBC Knowledge Park (the building hosting Accenture et al) on Bannerghatta Road for water theft.

Urban and Real Estate Chaos - New urban policy on the anvil

We all know how chaotic the real estate scence is in Bangalore. Nearly 99% of all buildings have some violations of some sort. Some are totally gross blatant disregard for the law and while others happily add extra floors and compromise on setback area and parking areas.

How infrastructure projects get delayed and stopped


The ROB at Whitefield is delayed because of inability of the parties (tenderer and tenderee) to work out a commodity rise formula. As noted in the following article, because of unexpected and steep rise in steel and cement prices, the tenderee could not complete the project and had to cite force majeure clause.
