Preservation of Lakes in the City of Bangalore
AbstractThe Karnataka High Court, while hearing a public interest litigation on the state of lakes and waterbodies in and around Bangalore, constituted a ten-member commitee under the chair of the high court legal services committee to look into the matter and draw up an action plan for the preservation of water bodies. This report makes detailed recommendations on lakes in the city and in the surrounding areas that are increasingly becoming a part of the expanding city. Submitted to the High Court, the report became the basis for a judgement directing the state and city authorities to declare these water bodies as protected.
