The City may soon turn greener while its dry fountains will come to life, if the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) delivers on its promises.

BMP Commissioner K Jairaj, who reviewed development works in the City on Saturday, hoped to give a new look to the City during the ‘Suvarna Karnataka’ year.

“To this end, more than a lakh saplings will be distributed to schoolchildren and citizens between September 15 and October 30,” he said.

The BMP’s top priorities are: Beautification of parks, repair of footpaths, ‘revival’ of fountains, greenery along railway tracks, repair of arterial and other important roads, clearing of encroachment along footpaths, besides removal of posters, banners and hoardings.


The BMP has ‘confiscated’ nine pushcarts for illegally occupying the footpath on the Wilson Garden vegetable market road (health ward 62) at Hombegowda Nagar. It has also recovered the administrative charges of Rs 1,600 from the offenders.

“The drive to clear encroachments on footpaths, roads and public places will continue and heavy penalty imposed on offenders,” warned Mr Jairaj.
