Bengaluru (erstwhile Bangalore), the capital of Karnataka, has a history of over four hundred years, having been founded by Magadi Kempegowda in the year 1537 AD. With its strategic location as well as congenial climate, fertile land & adequate rainfall has grown steadily in its area.

The history of municipal governance of Bangalore dates back to 1862, when nine leading citizens of the city formed a Municipal Board under the Improvement of Towns Act of 1850. Later, a similar Municipal Board was also formed in the Cantonment area of the city. The two boards were legalised in 1881, and functioned as two independent bodies called the Bangalore City Municipality and the Bangalore Civil and Military Station Municipality.

Post-Independence, the two Municipal Boards were merged to form the Corporation of the City of Bangalore in 1949. In January 2007, the Karnataka Government issued a notification to merge 100 wards of the erstwhile Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) with seven City Municipal Council (CMCs’), one Town Municipal Council (CMC) and 111 villages around the city to form a single administrative area and the body was renamed 'Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike' (BBMP) in 2007.

Well, I would definitely like namma bengaluru to be the smart city. on a positive note it has all the ability to be smart city. but the garbage, traffic & few public have ruined it.
I have discussed this with my fellow neighbors & jotted out few with some of my value additions. The original list was quite exhaustive which i have curtailed & made it simpler in thought process.
I would definitely wantt the authorities give a deeper thought on all inputs given by each one of us. Thanks

Making footpaths pedestrian friendly. Currently the footpaths are seen everywhere but it is highly dangerous for pedestrians to walk on them either due to encroachment by small shops, damaged footpaths or due to two wheelers riding on footpaths. Take measures to have structured and safe footpaths, penalize such miscreants who encroach the footpaths. BBMP and police should joint venture into this ask.

Bangalore ... Garden City ... Silicon Valley of India ... IT City ... Startup City on one hand. On the other hand, unbearable traffic ... bad roads ... air pollution ... polluted lakes ... garbage .... Dengue etc., We always blame the BBMP, BDA and other bodies for all the issues. Who is responsible for all these problems ? It's time that the CEOs of the companies realised the harm caused to Bangalore and move out of Bangalore. Talent is available in INDIA and not just in Bangalore !!!

With Chain, mobile snatching, eve teasing, crimes against elderly people increasing in the city, each and every street to have CCTV surveillance cameras to track the movement of people, new comers/strangers etc. Public Parks to have CCTVs and caretaker/Security guard to ensure that the parks are well maintained and free from miscreants. Regular, daily Police patrolling in residential areas to boost public confidence.

BBMP to create artificial water reservoirs like lakes or ponds to harvest surface run off for ground water recharge. Site location can be decided based on contour levels.this is possible since city internally developed with drain networks.tail end of this can lead to these mini reservoirs. This is one of measure long term for water needs of city, rather spending crores on lake rejuvenation. Ward wise plans are best to plan & maintain. Authorities seriously needs to focus on such measure.
