The BBMP will not issue occupancy certificate to new apartments and commercial complexes if they do not show a waste segregation unit in the infrastructure plan, said BBMP Commissioner Siddaiah.
Speaking on the fifth-day of ‘Wake Up Clean Up Bangalore’ expo at Freedom Park, Siddaiah said the CREDAI had committed to join hands with the BBMP to tackle the garbage crisis. There are 600 apartment complexes which were built by the CREDAI and the waste from these apartments is managed by its members. “This initiative will easily reduce waste generated by apartments by 250 tonnes,” said Siddaiah. R Nagaraj, president of CREDAI said the forum will initiate pilot projects to monitor waste management system in each ward in the city and it will assign builders to these projects. He also suggested that the BBMP should issue occupancy certificate on a condition that builders provide space for solid waste management plan.
Subir Hari Singh, chairman, BDA, said waste management is part of pre- conditions put by the BDA before approving building plan.
