List of roads being widened in Bengaluru

Check to see if your road or locality is included in this list. If you live in a property there, you may receive a TDR notice from the BBMP too.

During the second half this year – July-October in particular – as well during the previous two years, BBMP notified various roads in Bengaluru and outskirts for widening. BBMP’s notifications have appeared in Kannada and English dailies.

The widening is being under BBMP’s transfer of development rights (TDR) scheme. If you are slated to loose property on the road because of widening, you are entitled to 1.5 times the square footage lost through a development rights certificate (DRC), which the BBMP says it will issue. For more on this, see our articles BBMP’s TDR scheme has few takers, many left clueless, What’s TDR to you? and Citizens revolt at BBMP land acquisition for road widening.

Here is a consolidated of list of almost all the roads that have been notified during 2009 and going back to December 2007.

Many roadblocks to getting a PUC certificate for your vehicle

Under new rule, vehicles owners have to pay heavy fines if they fail to get a pollution test done. But, the system to get a PUC certificate remains flawed.

The rule ultimately has several drawbacks, given the difficulty in acquiring PUC certificates in the first place.
