Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) had two weeks ago published the list of autoblocks and waste management infrastructure data for each ward, on its website. Below is the index of the same data, grouped wardwise in an easy-to-see format on OpenCity.in
Check your location in this Map and click on the link that has your ward’s name and number, to see the data. Any problems in the data can be reported to the joint commissioner’s office for your zone.
This is first such effort in India, to bring about transparency in garbage management.
You can check many issues with this data,
- Is the vehicle that picks garbage from your area authorised?
- Does your ward have the same number of pourakarmikas working everyday, as mentioned in the data?
- Is the waste from commercial areas in your area going by the right vehicle?
- Is the waste from a nearby multiunit apartment going to the right person?
- Are all the vehicles allotted to your ward on the road?
- How many houses does your block have?
Click on the link related to your ward to access data. The data is also available on BBMP website.
