In an open letter to the Chief Minister, Executive Trustee of CIVIC Kathyayini Chamaraj points out why the planning process being followed for the city goes grossly against the 74th Constitutional Amendment and what needs to be corrected for the exercise to have an impact.
Citizen Action Forum asks BDA not to restrict the new CDP to a mere landuse document. Asks BDA to ensure the plan covers water supply, electricity supply, transport infrastructure, traffic management etc.
There was no ownership of RMP 2015= and its implementation by BDA. Citizens to be involved at all stages of the planning process and not merely at the final draft stage, feel citizens at a workshop on the Revised Master Plan.
BDA which has begun the process of revision of Bengaluru’s Master Plan, needs to get a buy-in from all stakeholders on the vision of what Bangalore should be. They have to engage citizens in the process!
