Kaikondrahalli Lake fencing complete

Fencing complete!

The fencing work at Kaikondarahalli lake has been completed, under tight security. We wish to thank everyone at the BBMP who made this possible — BBMP Commissioner Siddaiah, Chief Conservator of Forest Brijesh Kumar, Chief Engineer Lakes B V Satish, Forest Department Official Jagannath Rao and BBMP Environment Engineer Shilpa.

A special thank you to the contractor on the ground, Madesh, who was enormously efficient in completing the work.

Fencing finally finished under tight security.

The fence ensures that the lake land won’t get encroached illegally and the safety and the security at the lake has increased manifold.

And one more thing, we have marked an area just for pets, so that the pathway is kept clean and comfortable for walkers.

We are pet friendly!

Study shows TNPCB ill-equipped to monitor the environmental impact of pollution

The scientific team of TNPCB is working at half its strength, affecting the Board's ability to carry out inspections in Chennai and other parts of the State.
