They unanimously demanded a clean layout and asked their corporator to look into the garbage problem.

At the resident welfare association (RWA) meeting of HSR Layout on Sunday, members put forth their demands to corporator Latha Narasimha Murthy.

R S Hiremath, who was elected president of HSR RWA, said garbage disposal is a major issue plaguing the layout. “The corporator has promised to look into the issue,” he said. Officials from BBMP and BDA also attended the meeting.

Former HSR RWA president Brigadier R S Murthy said Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited (KPTC) dug up the road long ago but is yet to repair it. “We had asked KPTC officers to attend the RWA meet but none came. This is very disappointing. Civic authorities shouldn’t just dig up the road and leave it like that. Now, it’s raining every other day, posing a danger to residents,” he pointed out.

Residents Voice:Not a drip of water for the past 2 months

Dry Taps?

Wishing you a happy and joyous Deepavali , We would like to start a new Section called “Residents Voice” where we will post your thoughts, problems, Suggestions to make HSR Layout a better place to live.
Here is our first mail that we recieved from Mr.Ramkumar

Dear Sir,

I live in HSR layout second sector . Residents in 25th C Cross , 27th Main are facing huge water problems for the past 2 months. Around 20 houses which are on an elevation in this street have not received water for the past 2 months. We have to go to the BWSSB office at HSR layout every time and make a complaint. After that we get tankers. Every time we get an answer that pressure is not there. Isn’t it important to find out the cause and rectify the same ? This is creating lot of inconvenience for us. It is very frustrating to see that the residents who are in the low lying areas in the same street get good water but we don’t . It is much more frustrating to see that so much of water is being used for construction whereas we have to struggle for our basic needs. In spite of all these difficulties we promptly get our monthly bills with reading “ No draw” ?????? I request your help in resolving this issue at the earliest.
