BENGALURU: The BBMP is working on assessing the damage each household suffered after Hulimavu Lake breached on Sunday afternoon.
According to the BBMP, it will take at least Rs 25 crore to improve the basic civil infrastructure in the area. The civic body plans to ask the government to shell out this amount from the calamity fund.
