• Rs. 10 crore for road development in city

• Special flights

• Tax exemption for tourist vehicles

• Suggestion to modify Torchlight Parade

• Suggestion to reduce number of sub-committees


Bangalore, July 19 (KMS& KMC)- Pejawar Mutt Seer Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji will inaugurate the Mysore Dasara celebrations this year, announced Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa yesterday.

Yeddyurappa, speaking to media persons after presiding over a high-power meeting of elected representatives and authorities from Mysore, said the government was inviting the Seer to inaugurate the 401st festival to mark the Seer’s 80th birthday.

A sum of Rs. 10 crore has been allocated in this year’s budget for Dasara festivities to be held between Sept. 28 and Oct. 6, to be spent on repair and development of main roads in the city and linking roads.

"The entry tax for tourist vehicles plying into the city would be exempted during the celebrations," the Chief Minister said, adding that security, drinking water, toilet facilities and adequate parking arrangements during the festivities were discussed in the meeting.

After the inauguration of Dasara festivities atop Chamundi Hill on Sept. 28, the Chalana-chitrotsava (film festival) will be inaugurated the same day at 12 noon, followed by inauguration of Dasara Exhibition at 3 pm, Wrestling competition at 4 pm and cultural programmes in the Palace at 6 pm.

The Energy Department must take up the responsibility of illuminating the Brindavan Gardens at KRS dam and other heritage buildings in city during the festivities, said the Chief Minister.

It was also suggested that permanent toilets be constructed in all the government schools and colleges in city to facilitate the tourists visiting the city, which would be later on useful for the students of such schools and colleges.

Yeddyurappa said that special flights will be arranged during the festivities between Bangalore and Mysore.

Yeddyurappa directed the officials concerned to make cer-tain changes in the Torchlight parade procession and suggested that the number of sub-committees be reduced.

About the request made by Police Commissioner Sunil Agarwal for bomb disposal suits to officers to detect suspicious objects during Dasara, Ye-ddyurappa said he would hold a meeting with the Home Department shortly on the security measures and decide.

District In-Charge Minister S.A. Ramdas, Forest Minister C.H. Vijayashankar, Kannada and Culture Minister Govind Karjola, MP A.H. Vishwanath, MLAs H.S. Shankaralingegowda, Tanveer Sait, Tontadarya, Siddaraju, Sathyanarayana, ZP President Sunitha Veerappa Gowda, Mayor Pushpalatha Chikkanna and other officials were present.

Mysore district in-charge Minister S.A. Ramdas said the government would invite ambassadors of foreign countries to the Dasara festivities.

On the suggestion that Dasara holidays be given to schools across the State at the same time, Ramdas said the decision was the Education Minister's prerogative.

Congress MLA Tanveer Sait suggested that toll plazas be erected at all entrances to Mysore to facilitate easy monitoring and tracking of vehicles in the backdrop of terror attacks.

YOUNG ARTISTS' ART MOVEMENT TO SAVE TREES

Quote:
Mysore, July 19 (KK&SB)- Don't fell trees, it will lead to your destruction.

Such is the message being given by some young artists who have pioneered a movement against tree-felling in their own artistic way. Their venture seems to be an off-shoot of the famous 'Appiko movement,' but through paint brushes, colours and artistic hearts.



The artists, led by Badal Nanjundaswamy, are creating awareness against tree-felling and the value of trees in our lives by covering the trees on the road in front of Kukkarahalli School in city with meaningful and pleasing depictions.

Trees turn canvases

The young artists have turned the trees into canvases. About six achchikaayi trees have been metamorphosed into a scenic setting with the artists painting the picture of a girl and boy hugging on a tree; human face on the trunk with high rise buildings on his head depicting the greed of mankind and conversion of land into concrete forests. Another tree has green steps, with a message that all should walk towards environment conservation, say the artists. Huge buildings dwarf small trees in yet another picture.

Tree stamp

A tree has been painted as a stamp, with another tree inside it. The Postal Department brings out stamps to commemorate events and remember persons who have passed away. In the same way, we may have to see trees only on stamps in future, warns Badal.

Peace burning

A picture of burning fire with letters 'Green Peace Burn' on another tree depicts the destruction of forests and consequently, the burning of our peace.

Four monkeys

These artists have added another monkey to the famous 'Three monkeys' idea of Gandhiji — the monkeys seem to say 'I cannot see,' 'I cannot hear' and 'I cannot listen' to the destruction of trees. The fourth monkey has been drawn as saying, 'I love tree' and is shown to be hugging the tree.

These youngsters, who feared that trees will be felled in large numbers on the pretext of road-widening, decided to start their 'art revolution.'

Badal, who is working for a private company in Bangalore, is also involved in art direction in films. Though staying in Bangalore, he frequents Mysore as his heart pulls him here, he says. He comes to Mysore whenever he finds time and engages himself in various social causes.

Gift to society

When asked why they are involved in this art revolution, Badal says an artist's mind is always full of creations and visions. He always floats in his imaginary world. But he should also react to the reality. He can- not say that he is not connected to the society. We should gift our society something worthy and through this, should register our existence.

Other artists involved in this artistic journey include CAVA students Prashanth and Kaushik. Corporator Lingappa, who has supported Badal in this art movement, has decided to provide financial aid so that the artists can paint all trees in Saraswathipuram.

Do you have a wish to save the trees in your neigh-bourhood? Then contact Badal on Mob: 9880885516.

Let Mysooru not become another Bengaluru

Bangalore has become a concrete forest. There are no trees in the metropolis apart from parks. Pollution is uncontrollable and as a result, people are finding it hard to live comfortably. Trees have been felled in the name of development and road-widening. Hence there are no more trees left to be felled. But Mysore should not turn into another Bangalore.

Felling trees do not decrease accidents. For that, the speed of our vehicles should be reduced. We did not grow these trees. It takes years to grow such huge trees. Will the newly-planted saplings ever be equal to them? If one tree is felled, at least 40 saplings should be planted. Are we doing this? asks Badal.

Clean chit to encroachment near Chamundi Hill
Mysore, July 20, DHNS:
Quote:
Contrary to the allegations of widespread encroachment of land in and around Chamundi hill, minister for forest C H Vijayshankar has rejected the accusations and said the forest land on the foot of hill was intact and free of encroachment.

“A survey is conducted in the protected area. There is no encroachment. Forest department will act if it finds any encroachment. About 1,513 acres of land in and around the hill is declared as the protected forest area. It was not easy for encroachers in the area,” he stated.

Vijayshankar was speaking to reporters after visiting the foot of Chamundi hill to inspect progress of work on Deva Vana project.

“Deva Vana will come up at a 50 acre area in the foot of the hill. The department will create artificial lakes — where rain water from uphill can be stored. Culverts will also be created to draw water from sewage farm, he said adding that about 670 varieties of traditional Indian saplings will be planted in Deva vana. The district administration has shelved the Nehru Loka project and has transferred about 283 acres of land to forest department,” Vijayshankar said.

He said the department has also prepared an action plan to construct a walking track. The surrounding of the track would be covered with greenery from ayurvedic plants, he added.

Boating

The minister also visited Lingambudhi lake, where the department proposes to start boating. He directed the officials to chalk out the action plan for the lake and submit it to government soon.

A second Deva Vana project is also planned for Aloka, a forest area in the outskirts of city near Yelwala. The summer palace at Aloka would be converted into a forest museum, he stated.

DCF Manoj Kumar said that the government had released about Rs 4 crore for various projects like Deva Vana and improving of Aloka Vana. The project will take 3-4 years to complete, he said.

Forest dept mulls walking track in Chamundi Hills

Quote:
MYSORE: In a controversial move, the forest department is seeking to develop a walking track in the Chamundi Hills.

Billed as an eco-tourism initiative, the track is proposed to be built across the foothills, which could endanger the flora and fauna. Forest minister C H Vijayashankar, who has implemented a project to develop rare and endangered species as part of Deva Vana, said the track is for visitors who are interested in exploring the forested area. When pointed out that it is a reserve forest area, the minister said he will discuss with the experts before taking a final call on it.

Conservator of forests (Mysore circle) B P Ravi argued that they are aiming to divert tourists from national parks since they have come under pressure owing to increased traffic and attract the visitors to places like Chamundi Hills and Melkote in Mandya. The eco-tourism initiative at the Chamundi Hills will not amount to interference, he contended.

According to Vijayashankar, 1,513 acres has been declared reserve forest in Chamundi Hills range, which will be conserved and enhanced. The department has uprooted eucalyptus trees at the foothills and has planted rare species instead. The aim is to enhance the green cover and also to attend to the animals and birds. Some rare varieties of wild flowers will also be grown here. "We are religiously avoiding monoculture plantation in the area," he stated adding 283 acres in the area, which was with the revenue department has been handed over to the forest department. Even as he said encroachments in the area will be removed, he contended that the reserve forest area is free from encroachments.

Encroachments in the buffer zone will be cleared even if they are encroached by religious institutions, he told reporters during a visit to the project site. The forested area around which concrete jungle is taking shape is aimed to be developed as a lung space.

At Yelwal on Mysore-Madikeri road, where there is 530 acres, the forest department will develop Aloka eco-system with 200-year-old heritage monument as the centre. The site will be developed as eco-tourism site with the monument developed as a museum.

The minister said there is no dearth of money for these projects, which, he said, should be permanent assets to the department and sensitize people about ecology and conservation.

Mysore Palace website records two crore visitors
Eswar Singh K R. Mysore, July 22, DHNS:

Quote:
As the number of visitors to Mysore Palace surpass the total number of annual visitors to Taj Mahal, the palace website providing a virtual tour of Amba Vilas mansion is making big news.

The website www.mysorepalace.tv has registered a record number of two crore hits (visitors) from across the globe.

In a span of one and half years, the reach of the website has seen a 200 per cent growth. The number of hits which began from 10-15 lakh visitors in a month when the website was launched in early 2010, has hit a new record reaching two crore a month.

24/7 tour

The site has been visited round the clock as visitors knocked in from across the globe — the sub continent (India), Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom, United States, Hungary, Poland, South Korea, Phillipines and others.

The visitors from European, western countries and South Asia viewed the site for a virtual tour of the palace in high numbers, officials say.

According to Sanjay, managing director of Software Guru, an IT firm which evolved the site and maintains it, the wider reach was possible because of the interactive feature of the website. “The Amba Vilas mansion (palace) is divided into 21 segments from entrance to exit to show the 3D view of the palace. A visitor can get a feeling and experience of touring inside the historical palace. Visitor will also have control over virtual tour — to stop and start from where he stopped,” he says.

He adds that the Palace Board has opted for latest technologies to make the website user friendly. The day-to-day information and notices are updated everyday. The website address has been included in tourism encyclopaedia enabling for a wider and global reach, Sanjay told Deccan Herald.

“The total number is not enumerated from unique counts (from single IP address). But, has been evolved from the total number of counts exclusive to one IP address. The big increase in number of internet users worldwide and popularity of palace has contributed to wider reach,” he says.

T H Subramanya, deputy director of Palace Board told this newspaper that the board intends to further improve the website to add more features and make it more interactive for visitors.

The site has helped beckoning more tourists recently as the number of visitors to palace has crossed 32 lakh last year. Going by this trend, the palace will outsmart Taj Mahal in the number of visitors,” he remarked.

STATECON-2011 CONVENTION BEGINS IN CITY

Quote:
Mysore, July 23 (KCU&RK)- "Uncontrolled and haphazard urban development is detrimental in the long run," opined Dr. A. Ravindra, Advisor to CM, Karnataka Urban Development.



He was addressing the first Karnataka State CREDAI (Confederation of Real Estate Developers Associations of India) convention, STATECON-2011 orga-nised by CREDAI-Mysore in association with Builders Association of India (BAI)-Mysore at the Senate Bhavan in Manasagangotri here today.

Urban growth

Referring to Bangalore, Dr. Ravindra said "the city of course boasts of growth in several spheres but reels under problems covering housing, urban planning, UGD system and chaotic traffic. A straggering 40 per cent of State population live in urban areas, a sizeable population of them in Bangalore alone which is a dangerous development. Growth should be diverted to other smaller cities and rural areas with good policies. The Chief Minister's Rs. 100 crore grant to Mysore is a classic example for developing the city."

Basic needs

Referring to the nation in general, Ravindra said "despite the growth of the nation about 60 per cent of the population still continue to live below poverty line devoid of basic infrastructure. That should be a pointer for framing new housing policies. A new urban policy is being made and CREDAI members should also co-operate in achieving the mission. In short, planning should be good before going in for development."

Earlier, District in-charge Minister S.A. Ramdas inaugurated the convention, which features sessions and panel discussions on various topics being attended by over 500 members of CREDAI.

Vision 2030 CDP for heritage city soon: Ramdas
Mysore, July 23, DHNS:

Quote:
A comprehensive development plan for the city is getting ready and it is in its final stages.

M A Ravindra are seen. DH PHOTO" align="left" />The plan will show how Mysore should be in 2030 like the city core area and special zone. This will help in checking the haphazard development of Mysore and going the Bangalore way, said district in-charge and Medical Education minister S A Ramdas.

He was speaking after inaugurating the Statecon 2011, the first Karnataka State Confederation of Real Estate Development of India convention, organised by Credai in the city on Saturday and said the copy submitted by Credai regarding various demands will be looked into and addressed after taking the people’s opinion.

He also said that a Housing and Development policy committee will be formed.

Appreciating the oath taken by the Credai committee members to adhere to the code of conduct, he however, pointed out that it was the builders and the contractors in the city who had violated the floor area ratio (FAR) to the extent of five per cent to 25 per cent and hence for the past four years completion report has not been given.

The skilled workers employed in the construction industry are mostly migrant labours from Orissa, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. It becomes the responsibility of Credai to generate employment for youth from rural areas in the State on a war footing by training them in many areas like bar bending, masonry, plumbing etc, he said.

Highlighting on the sand policy, he said by August second week it will be in place after a panel involving the deputy commissioner, corporation commissioner, Muda commissioner, Town Planning authorities and the Credia members will hold discussions.

The government and Credai should work together and such conferences are essential to make the path easier in the future to help plan the cities, said Forest and small scale industries minister C H Vijayshankar.

The kind of cities build by the British in New Delhi or the Maharajas in Mysore has never been able to be replicated after independence, he regretted and added that the kind of forest cover in countries like north America, Russia, Japan is all in the region of 55 per cent and above, whereas, Karnataka has just 29.5 per cent forest cover which he planned to take it to 33 per cent. Earlier, advisor to chief minister, Karnataka Urban Development A Ravindra said, Mysore is still one of the most beautiful places and organisations like Credia have responsibility to see that it does not go the Bangalore way.

The vision 2020 for Mysore is a good idea to foresee and translate it into reality, he said.
Next to agriculture, it is the construction industry which generates maximum employment and it has tremendous opportunities in the future. Hence ,this industry has a great responsibility to build affordable homes for the poor class, he said.

Ravindra disclosed that an urban development policy had been prepared and it was awaiting the approval of the government. The tier-two cities like Mysore and Hubli-Dharwad will become one million cities and what was required was proper investment for their growth, he added.

Credai State president Sushil Mantri said the kind of bottlenecks the industry faces was mind boggling and demanded a single window clearance for the projects.

Mayor Pushpalata Chikkanna also spoke. Mysore Credai president M B Nagakumar, organising committee chairman V K Jagadish Babu and secretary S Prakash were present.

Jnanpith awardees come alive in City

Quote:


A signboard that had turned ugly, has been given a new touch by bringing back portraits of literary giants who have made Kannada proud, writes Sreekantswamy B

When English is making inroads into Kannada, slowly routing out its presence, an elected representative has embarked upon a novel idea to bring alive the literary giants who have made Kannada literary world proud.

All the seven jnanpith awardees have been brought back to life in a board on Adhichunchanagiri main road in Kuvempunagar. A board in the corner of Dr Poornachandra Tejasvi Circle near Cauvery School is painted with the portraits of ‘Rashtrakavi’ Kuvempu, Da Ra Bendre, Dr Masti Venkatesha Iyengar, Dr Shivaram Karanth, Dr Vinayaka Krishna Gokak, Dr U R Ananthamurthy and Dr Girish Karnad.

Corporator of the ward K V Mallesh, an ardent fan of the language and also poets couldn’t think of anything better when the board painted earlier with area map was looking ugly with the onslaught of publicity materials.

He thought of re-introducing the noble souls and that was how the doyens of Kannada literature found place here. However, he admits that due to space crunch, he could only paint the names and portraits of the litterateurs, but not about the award winning works and the year they bagged the coveted honour.

Another board on the same row is painted with the portraits of Kuvempu and his son and master story writer Poornachandra Tejasvi in the backdrop of Kuvempu’s ancestral house in Kuppalli. Coincidentally, the particular ward is also the abode of many litterateurs like Dr Prabhushankar, Dr S L Bhyrappa, Devanur Mahadeva to name a few and the locality is named after Kuvempu again.

Yet another board wears a new look with the portraits of last Maharaja of Mysore Jayachamaraja Wadiyar and Dewan Sir M Visvesvaraya in the backdrop of famous Amba Vilas Palace.

Mallesh said he surveyed eight to 10 such boards in the ward that had turned into notice boards. He also has plans to redo the remaining boards with the works that could highlight the significance of tourism, for what Mysore is famous for, environment and other people-friendly works.

That apart, he has conceived the idea of naming the circles in his ward after jnanpith awardees. You may be surprised, Mallesh just has SSLC for his qualification, but when it comes to love for literature he is no less than any litterateur.

CITY POLICE TO CONSTITUTE A NARCOTIC DETECTION SQUAD

Quote:
Mysore, July 24 (KCU&HT)- The Mysore City Police have geared up to make Mysore a narcotic-free city and hence have decided to constitute a Narcotic Detection Squad.

This was disclosed by City Police Commissioner Sunil Agarwal who presided over an awareness programme on 'Controlling drug trafficking' organised jointly by Mysore City Police and Sadhvi Foundation at Hotel Dasprakash in Yadavagiri here yesterday. On the occasion, Principal District and Sessions Judge Sandesh released a book on 'Ill effects of drug trafficking and its control.'

"It was a challenge for the Police to detect narcotics. Possibly owing to lack of information and awareness at times, the Police were hoodwinked. It is commendable that the information on narcotics in English has been translated into Kannada and brought out in a book form. Staff of all Police Stations will be provided information about the book. An examination will be conducted and Police personnel who excel in that will be selected to constitute the Narcotics Detection Squad," announced Agarwal.

Continuing, Agarwal said: "A drug-trafficking racket has been active in areas coming under Mandi Mohalla and Udayagiri Police Station limits which has been successfully curbed by the respective Police Inspectors. The State DGP will be requested to distribute the book on narcotics to all the Police Stations in State. The book will also be distributed to all schools and colleges to create awareness in students on ill-effects of consuming drugs."

Addressing the gathering, Sandesh opined that the role of the society in curbing narcotics consumption was immense.

Sadhvi Foundation Managing Trustee and author of the book C. Maheshwaran said there were 50 lakh drug addicts in the country which was really alarming.

BBC News Reporter M.S. Giridhar and Escondido Export Company Executive Director Vivek Poovaiah were present.

Planting the green future

Quote:
MYSORE: You don't really need an occasion or a reason to plant a sapling. But you may not want to miss this opportunity provided by the forest department to increase the green cover at the foothills of Chamundi Hills.

It works like this: A person will plant a sapling at an under-construction park at the foothills by paying Rs 1,400. "This way, the public will partner with the forest department in enhancing and maintaining the green cover," DCF (Mysore circle) Manoj Kumar told The Times of India. The officials want the community to partake in their initiative and leave their footprints, which will help the city increase its green cover.

This is the first time a tree is up for adoption in the state, the DCF stated. The adopter has to pay Rs 1,400 and the adoption is valid for five years. Some 200 species are available for planting and the public can choose any occasion like birthday, wedding anniversary, birth anniversary or death anniversary.

The Smriti Vana will be initially spread over 5 acres. Depending upon the response, the officials are planning to extend the tree adoption scheme to Lingambudi Lake where a bird sanctuary is being proposed.

"This should take us a long way in conservation," said Manoj Kumar going by his experience at the Mysore Zoo where he was the executive director. Talking about the animal adoption scheme at the zoo, he said, "there are instances when the people who adopted animals pulled up the officials when they felt the animals were not taken care of."

Though the animal adoption scheme was launched in 1994 at the zoo, it took off some five years back. Now, it has become a regular source of income for the conservation centre.

MCC TURNS HEBBAL LAKE INTO GARBAGE DUMPING YARD

Quote:

Captions: 1) The MCC lorry that dumped construction debris and other garbage at Hebbal lake bund was stopped by the local residents just as it was about to leave. 2) The debris and garbage dumped by the MCC lorry on the banks of Hebbal lake. After the Police were called in, the residents let go the lorry.

Mysore, July 26 (KCU&KK)- Close on the heels of thousands of fish dying at Hebbal lake in city recently and local industries taking the blame for it, the Mysore City Corporation is adding to the woes by dumping garbage around and into the lake.

Yesterday at about 1.30 pm, an MCC garbage transport lorry (AP-16 W-75) was learnt to have brought a load of stinking and decaying waste materials including building debris and dumped it on the banks of the lake indiscriminately. Shockingly, it was learnt that another 25 lorry loads of waste material had already been dumped near the lake.

Seeing an MCC lorry dumping the waste, local residents staged a protest and instructed the lorry driver not to dump the waste on the lake bund which invariably falls into the lake. They alleged that the polluted effluent from nearby industries were already contaminating the lake water.

When SOM contacted MCC Health Officer Dr. Nagaraj, he agreed that it was the mistake of the assigned contractor who would be pulled up and blacklisted if found guilty.

MCC team visits landfill site near Sewage Farm

Mysore City Corporation (MCC) Health Committee Chairman K.V. Mallesh accompanied by Health Officer Dr. Nagaraj, Environment Officers and Assistant Commissioners of nine Zonal Offices, inspected the landfill site and waste segregation unit near Sewage Farm in Vidyaranyapuram here this morning.

Speaking to press persons later, Mallesh and Nagaraj said" "The non-degradable waste will be segregated at a plot on Jodi Thenginamara Road in Banni-mantap for recycling purpose for which 6 auto tippers have been deployed."

An awareness has been created among people not to purchase Ganesha idols coloured with lead-based paint. The MCC team will inspect the places where the idols are made and seize any such painted idols. Immersion of idols in lakes is prohibited and instead, the MCC will provide water tankers to facilitate immersion of idols," he added.

Quote:


Mysore, July 26 (KK&DV)- With the shocking death of thousands of fishes in Hebbal Lake making news on Saturday, the Fisheries Department Deputy Director B.R. Jagadish, along with other officials, visited the lake yesterday afternoon and for inspection.

Talking to Star of Mysore after the inspection, Jagadish said: "More rain water is entering the lake, apart from contaminated water from some industries in the neighbourhood. Also too many fishes have been let into the lake, more than the lake can handle."

He also said that sewage water was entering the lake in large volumes.

"The matter will be referred to the Environment Department for detailed investigation. Further action will be taken on receipt of the report from the Department," he stated.

When asked whether the fish contractor will be compensated, Jagadish said there was no such provision as the contractor will have to bear any loss or profit, as per the terms of the contract.

When pointed out that the contractor Manjula had claimed a loss of Rs. 2 lakh, Jagadish said that if any request for compensation was made, the same will be forwarded to the higher-ups for consideration.

Mysore City Corporation bans sale of non eco-sensitive Ganesha idols

Quote:
MYSORE: The Mysore City Corporation has banned the sale of idols of Ganesha that are not eco-sensitive. It has also banned immersion of the idol in the city lakes.

Weeks ahead of the Ganesha festival, the MCC health committee on Tuesday visited some of the areas in the city where the Ganesha idols are being made. At a spot near Kalamandir, the committee headed by K V Mallesh inspected the idols made and asked the officials to check the paints used.

The local body has constituted nine teams for inspection in each of the nine zones and issued notices asking for the use of eco-friendly materials. The team consists of health inspectors and environment officers. Mallesh told reporters that they will confiscate idols that are made of synthetic materials. "We will act against the use of paints that pollute the water bodies," he explained. The water bodies will be secured ahead of the festival on September 1 to stop immersion of the idols which are degrading the lakes. "We will provide alternatives like tankers at various locations," he stated.

Meanwhile, the team inspected the Sewage Farm in Vidyaranyapuram where a landfill site is under construction and the garbage is segregated and processed. Mallesh said 80 waste management plants are being set up across the city. The citizen-promoted plant at Kumbar Koppal will be the model on which these plants will be built, he stated. Such plants will come up at Kesare and at a plot abutting graveyard in Banni Mantap. Some six wards will be tagged to each of these nine plants and the non-degradable waste will be shifted to the Sewage Farm and dumped at the landfill site. According to him, some 200 tonnes of solid waste generated in the city a day, out of which only 200 tonnes is segregated. This will be increased by another 50 tonnes shortly, he stated.
