Heavy Rains and Floods in Bengaluru


Above normal seasonal rains were predicted by the IMD and the intimation sent to the civic authorities but the low lying residential areas, supposed to be in the line of flood zone were not intimated or informed.

It is natural for the rainwater to flow on the low gradients and the NGT specified 50-meter buffer zone for the safety of the citizens and for the easy flow of the water, but many revenue, DC Converted, illegal buildings, unauthorised layouts and structures blocked the free flow of rainwater in the normal water channels, whereby it enters the low gradient zones.

More downpour is expected in a couple of days and the civic authorities must immediately take appropriate steps to stop the flow of rainwater in residential zones.

Most of the B Katha and revenue sites are on the battle zone.
