No takers for railway quarters in sugar town

Quote:
Lack of basic amenities forces eligible staffers to turn their back on facility created by dept

The railway quarters in Mandya, constructed at a cost of lakhs of rupees for employees of the department , are now in a deplorable condition as they are unoccupied. Now, rumours are rife that they have become a hot spot for nefarious activities.

The quarters were constructed only three years ago, but no employee is willing to occupy them.

Hence, vacant quarters have become a safe haven for unscrupulous elements who misuse the place for consuming alcohol and other illegal activities.

In all, 10 houses are vacant now, which is ruining the whole environment there.

A majority of the railway employees posted in Mandya commute from Mysore or Bangalore. Those who are residents of Mandya prefer to live in their own houses or areas.

They claim that residing in the quarters is not compulsory and the government also pay house rent allowance to those who don not avail quarters.

The main reason for railway employees to hesitate is lack of basic amenities like inadequate supply of drinking water, unhygienic conditions, lack of streetlights, etc.

Other reasons for not occupying the quarters are owning a house elsewhere, children’s education, disturbance due to rail sound, miscreants, etc.

One of the residents of the quarters, Nagarathnamma, said defunct streetlamps are not repaired for weeks and there is drinking water problem.

Moreover, miscreants gather at the spot as the sun sets and it is unsafe for those who return from the city to the area.

Those who have opted for the quarters are lower level employees and are suffering due to lack of facilities.

When contacted, railway in-charge officer Tejaswi just said nobody stays in the quarters and hence they are vacant. “It is the wish of the employees to select their house,” he added.

‘Investments of Rs. 5,000 cr. expected for Mandya district'

Quote:
Joint Director of Industrial Development M. Sujnana Murthy has said that they expect investments of Rs. 5,000 crore in various sectors in Mandya district through the Global Investors Meet (GIM) in June in Bangalore.

Addressing presspersons here on Wednesday, Mr. Murthy said this would lead to the creation of at least one lakh jobs in the district.

Mr. Murthy said: “We are preparing Vision 2020 document for the overall development of the industrial sector in Mandya. We will release the document at the meet.”

Mandya, Maddur, Malavalli, Nagamangala and Srirangapatna taluks have been identified for investments. As many as 1,500 acres of land have been identified near Pandavapura Road for the proposed Mandya New Town. Srirangapatna has been identified for the development of the information technology (IT) sector, Maddur for engineering and pharmaceuticals, Nagamangala for automobiles and Malavalli taluk for the textile sector.

Expressed interest

Seventy-three industries, including Abhimani Prakashana, Orient Green Power, M.K. Agrotech, Koramandal Sugars, Prem Sugars, Best Cottons and Mandya Rice Mill Clusters, had expressed interest in investing in the district.

Wipro and a few other companies had decided to invest near Mogaralli in Srirangapatna, Mr. Murthy added.

The administration would showcase the district's potential in sectors such as tourism, food processing, IT and Biotechnology at the meet.

The district administration had identified land in different parts of the district to set up industries. It would also provide basic infrastructure for investors, he said.

Several industrialists from Kerala were also keen on investing in Mandya, he said. The authorities would organise a roadshow at the Senate Hall in Manasagangotri in Mysore on Friday in connection with GIM, he added.

New hospital building still awaits opening

Quote:
Wrongly printed invitations now find way to dust bin

This new building of the hospital has no luck of being inaugurated for benefit of public. Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda was to have inaugurated the building on May 3. But with the jinxed district tag, that is a far fetched idea.

The District government hospital of Chamarajanagar was upgraded to 250 beds capacity from 150.

A new building of Rs nine crore was constructed beside the old building.

Though it has been more than a year since the construction is completed, it has not been inaugurated till now. Dates of inauguration is also being postponed every now and then.

The new building constructed under the State health project, was scheduled to be inaugurated on May 3. It was even printed in the invitation card that chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda would inaugurate the programme.

It is said that bowing to superstitious beliefs, visit of the chief minister was cancelled to the districts.

The printed invitation cards are now thrown into dust bin.

Apart from this health department has shown its irresponsibility by printing wrong day.
The day and the date are mismatching. May 3 is Thursday while on the card it is printed May 3 as Friday.

According to regulations of the government, medical staff should be appointed when the hospital building is 75 per cent complete.

Necessary medical instruments should also be provided.

But the hospital has not been provided with any said facilities.

Neither district in charge minister nor local representatives have tried to convince chief minister to visit district. Public urge the respective authorities to appoint staff and inaugurate the hospital.

Amidst chief minister’s superstitious belief and negligence of local representatives and officials, public are said be deprived of utilising hospital facilities.

Ch’nagar: Priceless trees disappear in thin air

Quote:
Tree-lined roads in the district are disappearing as many trees on road sides and in front of houses are being felled.



The practice of pruning trees has increased for construction of compounds or for shades in front of shops.

Though residents are involved in felling of trees, environmentalists say that the district administration has not taken any measures to check this.

Trees are found in large numbers only on the district court road. Many trees on B Rachaiah double road, which provided shade have now decreased in front of some shops.

But nobody is interested in planting saplings. Although the city municipal council plants saplings every year, they are eaten up by goats as there is no suitable protection.

According to rules of the Urban Development Authority, those buying sites to build houses should compulsorily plant two saplings in front of the house.

If the rule was followed by residents, the district would have had plenty of trees. Only a few residents plant saplings, some are interested in growing only ornamental plants.

Amidst the district administration’s negligence to nourish plants by roads, even the scheme of issuing free saplings to residents is not implemented. No awareness programmes are held in schools or colleges, complain parents.

Senior citizen Nagarajappa says, “In many layouts, roads are encroached upon for construction of compounds. They should be cleared and saplings be planted.”

Science college planned in Chamarajanagar district

Quote:
University of Mysore (UoM) is seeking to expand its educational activities in the border district and promote Science. It is planning to open an exclusive Science degree college at Chamarajanagar. The proposal is being followed up seriously, UoM VC V G Talawar said on Monday.

This comes after the educationally-backward district netted Rs 35 crore community college aimed at promoting job-oriented courses. The university has an exclusive Science institution in Yuvaraja's College in Mysore. It is seeking to replicate the same in Chamarajanagar too. The Yuvaraja's is a constituent college of UoM.

Talawar said the university is focussing on promoting higher education in Chamarajanagar district, pointing at the setting up of PG satellite centre, which is one-year-old now. The PG centre is operating out of a government building next to the DC's office, which will be shifted to 54-acre campus under construction at Mariyala on the outskirts of the city.

The government engineering college is located next to the under-construction campus, which is facing problem as the forest department has taken objection to the allotment of the land. Referring to the issues, registrar (evaluation) B Ramu said UoM has conveyed that it will use 10 acres for the construction of buildings, and the rest will be used as an open space. "The 44 acres will remain as forested area," he added.

Ramu said the PG centre is crucial since some 1,000 students from Chamarajanagar district are studying at Manasa Gangotri, UoM's PG campus here. Majority of them belong to SC and ST communities, he added.

CCTVs to keep watch on Mandya

Quote:
Cameras proposed at bus-stand, railway station, vital installations, tourism spots

The Police Department is gearing up to install closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras across the district to strengthen security. The Mandya police have forwarded a plan in this regard it to the State police headquarters, and are waiting for approval.

“Under the police modernisation plan, we have decided to install CCTV cameras at different parts of the district in a phased manner,” Koushalendra Kumar, Superintendent of Police, told The Hindu .

Places identified

“We will install CCTVs at 20 places in Mandya city and a good number of surveillance cameras at different parts of the district,” Mr. Kumar said.

According to another police officer at the State police headquarters in Bangalore, “The Mandya police will install the CCTVs at Mandya bus-stand, railway station, V.V. Road, Holalu Circle, and offices of the Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police.”

Besides, the Police Department has also decided to install surveillance cameras at major tourist destinations in the district.

“We will install surveillance cameras at Sangama, Mekedatu, Sri Ranganatha Swamy temple, and Tipu's palace and armoury in Srirangapatna,” said a senior police official.

For security

A source told The Hindu that the initiative was aimed at improving security in Mandya. The department would install such cameras at traffic intersections, crowded places and vital installations in Maddur, Malavalli and other taluks. The police hoped to check terror strikes and crime.

The department would set up a control room in Mandya. “The cameras will be highly advanced, with features such as capturing high resolution pictures even at night. The footage will be stored for at least 30 days,” a police officer said.

Plan forwarded to State police headquarters and is awaiting approval

South’s first fodder cake unit ready

Quote:
District’s fodder problem to be solved, plan to produce 12 tonnes every day



The farmers of the district have a reason to cheer as the first fodder cake manufacturing unit in South India, being constructed near Manachanahalli-Kalanahalli, will start functioning in a couple of months.

The unit is being constructed with an objective to prevent wastage and also produce dry fodder with byproducts that are available aplenty in the district.

The establishment of the unit will encourage farmers, who had stopped rearing of cattle as they could not afford it due to rising fodder prices.

The dry fodder cake technology is used in North India. Cattle rearers in Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh use such cakes.

Boost dairy farming

The Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) decided to set up a dry fodder cake production unit in the state to boost dairy farming. Such units were sanctioned for Chamarajanagar, Shimoga and Haveri districts.

The Mysore-Chamarajanagar District Cooperative Milk Producers Union Federation (Mymul), using the Rs one crore grant under the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas project, has set up the unit at Chamarajanagar well before other districts.

Mymul has purchased five acres of land for the purpose. More than 50 per cent of equipment have arrived and the remaining are expected in a week.
Production method
Hay from paddy, ragi and jowar will be cut into half inch size pieces and mixed with grains, husk, salt, etc. It is made into fodder cakes after processing.

Initially, there is a plan to produce 12 tonnes of cakes, with each weighing eight to 10 kg, per day.

As hay and fodder are utilised to make cakes, it would be a balanced food for the cattle.

It would help in increasing milk production and also fat content in the milk, said Mymul managing director Suresh Babu.

Preparations are on to float tenders to supply hay and raw materials. The price of the cakes will be decided later. The cakes will be sold to farmers in the district in a couple of months, he added.

Mandya CMC approves Rs. 12.75-crore action plan

Quote:
Amid strong opposition from the MLA, MLC and Opposition members, the Mandya City Municipal Council (CMC) approved an action plan to improve basic infrastructure in all wards at a cost of Rs. 12.75 crore, at its general body meeting here on Friday.

Bad roads, garbage collection, clogged drains and drinking water problem, however, dominated the meeting .

CMC president M.P. Arun Kumar said the council would improve basic infrastructure at a cost of Rs. 12.75 crore, which included a grant of Rs. 8.35 crore from the State Finance Corporation (SFC) and Rs. 4.25 crore from the 13th Finance Plan.

Claiming that the action plan was “unscientific”, councillors M.J. Chikkanna, K.C. Nagamma, Padmavathi and Shankare Gowda, among others, urged the CMC president to have a new action plan. They demanded that the grant be distributed equally among all wards of the city.

Mr. Kumar, however, said the action plan had been prepared based on the demands of citizens.

As a majority of councillors supported the action plan, Mr. Kumar approved it.

Tension prevailed for a while after a few councillors raised their voice against the approval.

They demanded that M. Srinivas, Mandya MLA, and B. Ramakrishna, MLC, intervene and oppose the action plan.

However, the CMC president approved the plan in spite of Mr. Srinivas’s suggestion that the plan not be approved.

Accusations

Some councillors alleged that the CMC had failed to keep the city clean and improve infrastructure.

They demanded regular water supply and proper garbage collection.

Now you can board Mandya Nagara Sarige

Quote:
Even though the land of sugar, Mandya, is witnessing development in all areas, the people here had to depend on private transport operators or on personal transport for day-to-day commuting till now.



The lackadaisical attitude of the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) in operating public transport in Mandya had made the private transport operators rule the roads.

Nevertheless, to cater to the needs of the developing city, the Mandya Division of KSRTC introduced city bus services, the city’s decade-old demand, on June 24 and has thereby put an end to the monopoly of private transport operators in Mandya.

Though autorickshaw, tempo, cab and mini buses were always crowded with passengers, the demand for city bus services had remained a distant dream till June 24.

Minister for Home and Transport and Mandya district in-charge R. Ashok inaugurated ‘Mandya Nagara Sarige’ (MNS) and promised to extend services in the future.

Five routes

KSRTC has introduced 11 low-floor buses with hi-tech facilities as a part of its first phase on Mandya-Hale Budanuru, Mandya-Kyathanagere, Mandya-Santhe Kesaragere, Mandya-Arakeshwara Temple and Mandya-Mandya (city round trip) routes.

According to KSRTC’s Divisional Controller (Mandya) N. Prakash Babu, ‘the MNS will relieve the people from the unfriendly cab and auto operators in Mandya.’

The corporation demands encouragement from the citizens for the success of the MNS, which is providing services to various areas up to eight kilometres from the Mandya bus stand.

The public and various organisations on several occasions had demanded city bus services. As a good bus fleet was the need of the hour, the corporation has introduced MNS, Mr. Babu said.

Some of the crowded places, where MNS buses are operating, are: Hale Budanuru, Swarnasandra, Guthalu, Factory Circle, Sanjo Hospital, Kyathanagere, Hosahalli Circle, Vivekananda Road, 100 ft. Road, Karnataka Bar Circle, Kannika Parameshwari Circle, Chamundeshwari Temple, Police Quarters, Santhe Kesaragere, Mangala, Ummadanahalli, Arakeshwara Temple, Holalu, Sathanur and Nanda talkies area.

Autorickshaws, cabs and private buses operating on these routes had gained notoriety through their rash and negligent driving.

The KSRTC officials say they are planning to introduce bus services on other routes too.

The spacious double-door buses are fitted with automatic doors, LED display boards, GPS-based automatic announcement systems and motorised exhaust and emergency exit systems.

Other routes

The KSRTC is also planning to extend the bus services to famous tourist places such as Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, Srirangapatna, Sangam, Tipu Palace, and Tipu’s armoury and other historical places in the district.

As of now the city bus services has been named as ‘Mandya Nagara Sarige.’ However, the KSRTC has plans to rename the MNS and is inviting suggestions from the general public, one of the top officers at KSRTC in Bangalore, told The Hindu .

The right name

A good numbers of netizens, through social network websites, have suggested the KSRTC to rename MNS as Bella on Wheels, Sihi Sarige, Sweet Chariot, Cauvery Sarige, Pallakki, Sir MV Sarige, Amogha, Vaibhav, Sakkare Sarige, Mandavya Nagara Sarige, Namma Mandya, Brindavan Sarige and other names.

However, Mysore Division has named a few buses as ‘Cauvery Sarige’ and hence the Mandya division cannot name MNS as Cauvery Sarige, the officer said.

Finally, Ch’nagar to get UGD system in place

Quote:
Works taken up at a estimated cost of Rs 26.76 crore

The residents of Chamarajanagar can heave a sigh of relief as the district administration has restarted works pertaining to construction of underground drainages (UGD) in the city.

The works were launched ceremoniously in front of the city municipal council office last February.
But as the survey work for locating points for manholes and other planning were not complete, it resulted in inordinate delay in executing the works.

However, the related works were relaunched a month ago and laying of pipelines and construction of manholes have begun. There is only open drainage system in the district and lack of underground drainage had resulted in pollution, emanating of stench and becoming an eyesore.

Though the adminstration had enough funds, lackadaisical approach of the elected representatives and officials had caused the delay in taking up the work, say local residents.

As a result of the pressure exerted by the residents — demanding underground drains — the works were finally taken up under Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development Fund with financial aid from Asian Development Bank.

The works, including flow of sewage water, maintenance of storage unit, manhole construction, laying of pipelines and others were taken up at an estimated cost of Rs 26.76 crore.

A company from Ahmedabad has been given the responsibility to execute the work. The storage unit is being constructed at an area of 16.16 acre near Boodithittu village.

A pipeline of 105 km is being laid and there is a plan to give UGD connection to 16,314 houses and 3,377 manholes constructed for the purpose.

A deadline of 18 months has been set for the company, which has bagged the contract. However, local residents opine that it will be difficult to complete the work within the scheduled time as the launch was delayed.

“There should not be any compromise on the quality of work, in order to complete the work in a hurry,” they added.

Flyover planned on highway in Mandya

Quote:
The State government has dropped the proposal to construct a bypass to reduce traffic congestion on the Bangalore-Mysore highway and decided to construct a flyover instead.

The estimated cost of constructing the flyover, between Shivanahalli and Acetate Factory junction on the highway, was Rs. 6.5 crore. The project would be implemented on a public-private partnership basis.

Mandya Urban Development Authority chairman Basave Gowda told presspersons here on Monday that the authority had prepared a detailed report on the flyover project and forwarded it to the Department of Housing and Urban Development for approval.

Mr. Gowda told The Hindu later, “We conducted a meeting of officials of various departments a few weeks ago and finalised the project report.”

In 2006-07, the authority had planned to construct a bypass in Mandya to ease traffic congestion on the Bangalore-Mysore highway. The project entailed acquiring nearly 100 acres of land and the cost would have come up to nearly Rs. 75 crore.

“We don’t want to acquire fertile land to construct the bypass. Hence, we have decided to construct a flyover without acquiring any land,” he said.

Mandya Urban Development Authority commissioner H.S. Shivaram was present on the occasion.

Project cost estimated at Rs. 6.5 crore
