|Karnataka High Court|
In today's news report, we read that the Karnataka High Court tells Bangalore Bruhat Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to allow high-rises in city.
So far, so good.
However, there are several important things the BBMP must keep in mind:
- Make available adequate water supplies.
- Make sufficient provision for hauling garbage away for further treatment.
- Ensure that these high rises do not exacerbate the already-congested traffic scenario.
I realize the foregoing is not the concern of a High Court, and hope sane minds within BBMP will prevail to deal with these sorts of things.
