Barricade this trench near NIE

August 7, 2019

Sir, An opening near a small culvert next to NIE on the busy H.D. Kote Road is posing danger to motorists and other road-users. Though there is a protection wall over the culvert, the area before the culvert is not flat and the entire trench is very close to the road. It is more dangerous…

Why can’t MCC send tax demand once a year?

August 6, 2019

Sir, “After water bills, MCC moots launch of online Property Tax payment” (SOM dated Aug.3) is indeed good news.

More on bright light of vehicles

Students and Swachh Survekshan

August 1, 2019

Sir, I read with interest a news item (not in SOM) about the expectations of Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) to maintain city’s cleanliness by Educational Institutions “AT THEIR EXPENSES.” Expecting community participation is most welcome, but in the name of instilling awareness about cleanliness, it is not justifiable that an organ of the responsible Government…
