As monsoon season is fast approaching, the Bangalore Traffic Police has begun with their task of filling up potholes in the city. Earlier, the BTP had conducted a study to spot potholes in the city that needs to be filled up immediately. While Old Airport Road, Indiranagar and 100-feet Road were picked for the first day, policemen were seen supervising the process next to Ejipura and Koramangala areas on April 29. Pothole filling continues in the city as the day progresses.

Bangalore may face call drops and disruption in internet services in coming days. This is due to city’s civic body Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) taking up the process of cutting telecom cables laid over the ground due to non-payment of fee and failure to follow the existing norms. The move by the BBMP has got internet service providers (ISPs) up in arms and attracted criticism by the Cellular Operators’ Association of India (COAI).
