Udupi, 03 June 2010: Udupi CMC is planning to purchase 1,000 buckets to be distributed among households, so that wastes can be segregated from the source, said CMC Commissioner Gokuldas Nayak.

Speaking at the III Finance Commission Implementation Task Force review meeting held here, he said “the city produces 50 tonne wastes daily. Instead of shifting the same to dumping yard, it is better to segregate the waste from the source. Hence, CMC is planning to implement it on pilot basis in two wards by giving two buckets each to every house.”

Self-Help Groups have been deployed to collect wastes from each ward. The buckets will be distributed to other wards as well. By segregating the wastes from the source, it has been decided to go for scientific waste disposal.  Reacting to it, Task Force President A G Kodgi said “none of the TPs, CMCs go for scientific disposal of waste management. They just indulge in dumping it to the yard. The scientific process of wastes will also help in the production of manure and gas.”

To a query on supply of drinking water, Commissioner said in 2009-10, 89 per cent of tax has been collected. The city has 13,216 water connections. A sum of Rs 3 crore has been collected. Water metres have been installed.

‘List properties’
Kodgi directed the officials to make list of properties in all the Gram Panchayats in the district within three months. Every property should come under the perview of taxes. Taxes should be collected properly. In many places, rich evade taxes. Panchayats permission must be taken before going for construction.  He took officials to task for having failed in implement Suvarna grama yojane and also for not distributing sites under Ashraya schemes, he added.

Kodgi said as the monsoon is fast approaching, the roads have been spoiled in many places.  The huge potholes are welcoming the road users. Drainages must be desilted to allow the free flow of rain water.

Task Force members Thimme Gowda, Dr Mahendra S Kanti, Member Secretary D K Rangaswamy, MLC Kota Srinivas Poojary  were present.
