Bengaluru - one of the least affected cities post demonetisation: CREDAI
Bengaluru is one of the least affected cities due to the demonetisation+ move as the market here has been predominantly transparent with cash transactions almost being negligible, Confederation of Real Estate Developers' Association of India (CREDAI) said.
"Bengaluru is one of the least affected cities,the reason being the market here has predominantly been transparent and cash transactions are almost negligible," CREDAI chairman Irfan Razack told reporters.
The expectation that real estate prices will come down in Bengaluru market due to demonetisation is mere exaggeration as there is no real basis for this, he said.
Driven largely by the salaried class in the IT and ITES sector, the market here is more end-user/consumer centric, dealing primarily through banking channels, Razack said.

Bengaluru Suburban Rail: 10 Possible Rail Routes To Decongest India’s Silicon Valley
A decade-long demand of Bengaluru residents has finally been heard with the city finally moving towards building a commuter rail system. Union railway minister Suresh Prabhu recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Karnataka for utilising the megacity’s existing railway infrastructure to operate commuter rail services similar to that in Mumbai and Chennai.

As part of the deal, Karnataka will pitch in 80 per cent of the cost to convert 15 trains to electric multiple units while Indian Railways will take care of the rest. The total cost is pegged currently at Rs 360 crore. And the first train is set to have Ramanagara, 35 km outside the city, as its destination point.

It has been a long journey trying to get commuter rail service started in Bengaluru, a city that already has a metro rail system, with a light rail system also in the docks. Although far from perfect, suburban rail is the most practical and cost-friendly solution to ease Bengaluru’s traffic problems. . CLICK TO READ MORE......

Godrej plans township in Bengaluru
Godrej Properties Ltd, a listed company in the Godrej group, is planning to develop a residential township near Sarjapur in East Bengaluru.

This would be its second such project since 2009 in the country. It has already entered into a partnership with Godrej Agrovet.

“We are planning this project with our sister concern,” Mr. Sriram Iyer, Business Head, South & East, GPL said in an e-mail interview to a Chennai based Newspaper. The proposed township would have a ‘developable’ potential of up to 830,000square metres (or about 9 million square feet) and would be implemented as a modern residential development in multiple phases, he said.

The location is seen to be well-connected to the key IT hubs of Whitefield, Outer Ring Road and Electronic City, enabling it to benefit from a well-developed social and physical infrastructure. “This makes it a self-sustaining cluster,” Mr. Iyer said.

The project would be developed under the Development Management Model with Godrej Agrovet.

He said that its first township project in Ahmedabad in 2009, Godrej Garden City, was a mix of commercial, residential and retail properties. In the 1990s , the group did several large projects which were primarily residential with a small retail component catering to the residents’ requirement. CLICK TO READ MORE......

How One Bangalore Based Organisation Is Working Tirelessly to Provide Blind Students with Braille Books

According to them, there are an estimated 45 million blind people in the world, out of which one in three live in India. This would mean around 15 million blind people across the country. CLICK TO READ MORE...............

Bengaluru ges Bangalored
Monday's (Sept 12) violence put Namma Bengaluru on the world map for a different reason. Global media saw it as a precursor to 'water wars', or a powder keg waiting to explode — putting the city's business credibility at risk.

The advent of the 21st century turned Bangalore into a verb; everyone, it seemed, was getting Bangalored - their plush US jobs shifting to Bangalore as economics and talent tipped in our favour. The going was good, the money was better, nobody could be bothered about the creaking infrastructure, and the weather made you forgive everything.

And then 9/12 happened.

"Getting Bangalored" has acquired a whole new meaning in the aftermath of Monday's riots. Brand Bengaluru has taken a hit among Fortune 500 companies and there are fears that the fight over Cauvery between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka will become a frequent flashpoint. CLICK TO READ.............

How to save Bengaluru's lakes
A.N. Yellappa Reddy, former forest officer and environmentalist; Vinay Baindur, a researcher on Urban Governance and Reforms, and citizen activist Arbind Gupta joined The Hindu for a chat on saving Bengaluru's lakes on September 24, 2016. The following is the transcipt of the chat:

6:01 The Hindu: With the city and the state staring at a water crisis in the coming days, there is perhaps no better time to look at lakes in the city than now. Lakes (Hesaraghatta, for instance) had once been the lifeline of the city – and most of our drinking water came from a system of tanks conceived centuries ago. Now, however, many are reduced to cesspools of sewage, or their peripheries littered with garbage, or filled with silt reducing any chance of these water bodies recharging the depleting groundwater. Also, apart from affecting citizens directly, unhealthy lakes also seen flora and fauna of the ecosystem disappearing. CLICK TO READ MORE...............
