High-Rises in Bangalore: Boon or Bane?

Karnataka High Court
High Rises in Bangalore, or for that matter anywhere, are a good thing.

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:
  1. Make available adequate water supplies.
  2. Make sufficient provision for hauling garbage away for further treatment.
  3. 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.
