    Title : Thanking the Mysore City Corporation
    Dear Sir,
    Of late we are noticing our corporation is taking right action on filling of pot holes / repair of damaged roads within the city. It is a welcome act. Yes this was very urgently required, as we could see thousands of commuters suffering with bad roads mainly the inter linking roads of main extensions. For example between Kuvempunagar and Vivekananda nagar.
    A word of concern here is that we as the citizens also should avoid cutting the roads for water or drainage purpose without committing ourselves to reinstate the good condition, once we complete installation for our use. Public cooperation is humbly requested.
    A request to Mayor is that please pass on a resolution in the senate or syndicate, to mandatorily display a clear solid placard showing the permit to dig the roads, contact number of the permit holder, time to reinstate and instead of penalty for late reinstate of non compliance of reinstatement, jail term of minimum of 7 days without bail.
    Other wise this irresponsible menace will continue unabetted.
    Corporation also requested to please paint white and black stripes / night visible reflecting marker on all road humps/ Speed breakers.
    Please reply your proposed action plan on this sir,

    Thanking you,
    Nagaraj Rao, Citizen, Srirampura
