Karnataka CM launches dashboard to track govt projects in Bengaluru

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has launched a dashboard that allows real-time monitoring of major projects in Bengaluru to avoid delays and ensure quicker implementation of projects.

According to the Chief Minister's Office (CMO), the dashboard would provide accurate and up-to-date information on all major projects in the city, which has become known for both its crumbling infrastructure and its prowess in IT, startups, and science.

On 28th August, the chief minister announced plans to unveil a dashboard to track all mega projects in the city to avoid delays and ensure timely completion. Bengaluru, which is home to nearly a quarter of the population of Karnataka, aspires to be recognised as a global hub but has struggled to cope with its own rapid and unplanned growth.

Many mega projects, such as the Metro, Outer Ring Road, flyovers, and other public works, have posed significant challenges for residents and the 9.4 million vehicles that ply the city's poor roads.

In the recently concluded monsoon session of the state legislature, the chief minister even admitted that around Rs 20,000 crore had been spent on road repairs in Bengaluru over the previous five years.

According to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), Bengaluru has 13,847 km of arterial and sub-arterial roads, of which only 295 km are said to be in good condition and another 246 km have been ridden with potholes.

Water clogging is common in Bengaluru due to poor drainage planning, encroachments, and unplanned construction. Rainwater also gushes into basements of apartments and other structures, causing millions of dollars in losses to residents who bear the brunt of civic indifference.

On 30th September, the Karnataka government announced that all roads in Bengaluru will be pothole-free in 30 days, setting yet another deadline after a string of missed deadlines to provide one of the city's most basic amenities to its over 12 million residents.

The assurance on road maintenance comes ahead of the BBMP elections, which are scheduled for early next year.
