Stop Commercialization in Malleswaram

This petition had 95 supporters


We, the residents of Malleswaram, are suffering due to the illegal commercialization of designated residential areas.

While the BBMP conveniently closes its eyes, these blatant violations have resulted in overcrowding with increased traffic, noise pollution, parking problems and safety concerns, especially forchildren, women and the elderly.

Our repeated plea to the BBMP to do its mandated job and to permanently close illegal commercial establishments in Malleswaram have been met with inaction, despite repeated Court rulings and Karnataka Government orders.

This blatant disregard of the Court and Government orders by BBMP has:

  • Allowed Illegal restaurants and other business/commercial establishments to operate with impunity. These commercial establishments operate late into the night and attract an unsavory floating population, creating a law and order problem for the residents. It has become unsafe for residents, particularly women, children and senior citizens from venturing out with a feeling of safety.
  • The increased vehicular traffic has rendered it impossible to cross roads safely and has greatly increased both noise and air pollution in residential areas.

As tax paying residents of Malleswaram:

  • We demand that the BBMP Commissioner and officials perform their mandated job responsibility in enforcing the zoning regulations, as per the Karnataka High Court order 3676/2008 & WP 2661/2015, Karnataka Gazette Notification No; UDD 105 MNJ 2008 dated 23rd March 2015, and subsequent Public Notice issued by the Commissioner BBMP dated 8.12.2016.
  • We demand that the rules related to permissible and uses as per the above orders be strictly implemented in Residential (Main) and Residential (Mixed) zones of Malleswaram and that illegal established commercial establishments be closed.
