Quoting June 2020 version of https://www.afforestt.com/methodology In August 2019 our trainers from Japan were in India. Together we visited some of our old forests, did a PNV (Potential Natural Vegetation) survey and also planted a forest. During the training, we realised that our Open Source manuals need to focus more on PNV survey as the selection of species is the most critical part of forest creation.
Hence, we have decided to make necessary changes to our open source manuals to make the process of forest surveys and native species selection easier to understand.
We are in the process of creating free, easy to follow video tutorials to help people understand our forest creation techniques better. These will be released soon. Kindly check this space and our social media to receive information about the release of these videos.
Meanwhile, please go through this document to understand more about the method and what it’s not.

Enough Commercial buildings in Bellandur and surrounding.

Some of us want to go to court to stop new commercial buildings in Bellandur and surrounding.

Brief : looking for people who will give 3-10k each. If we can collect 3.5 lakhs then will go ahead. Also looking for two Kannada speaking volunteer who are good at getting work done from freelance agents. Why 3-10k? Its a voluntary donation for lawyer, court and expenses to get certified copies. Can give what you can, want a minimum of 3k. Up to you to give yourself or share with a friend and transfer together.

Detail:

With inspiration from people who have stopped earlier buildings from coming up.

A generic PIL and stay cases backed by facts that we can collect (like  20-30 minute long one shot non edited mobile videos of slow commutes, showing 2km in more than 15 minutes. Like during an Uber trip so have video, time and distance, or use google maps and a shot of watch or another phone at start and end of video)
* Need to ask Govt to implement via case: we need specific statistics to allow a new multi storey building. Like a person can travel by his own car - 1 km in 5 minutes (not under ideal conditions but in peak traffic).

* Maybe the court and govt will say that is too little we need 10 minutes. Still in Bellandur it takes me 25 minutes to go to my ofc which is 1.8km away from my flat. I walk back home when I can as it takes the same time and give me some exercise !

There are many things to do to make our case stick. Like collect data about traffic, water, time to hospital, some specific cases about people having respiratory and other health issues made worse by the congestion and lack of infrastructure.

More than whatsapp message want long unedited videos (uploaded to youtube or drive and made shareable)
Prints out/ photo copies of health records, medical reports and doctor diagnosis.

Take all this to our lawyer and start a case. They will ask for specific plans of proposed buildings http://environmentclearance.nic.in/timeline.aspx?pid=SIA%2fKA%2fNCP%2f29534%2f2018&type=TOR&ID=66311 (the documents are no longer visible but we have downloaded what was there 3 months back and have in drive)

For folks who want to contribute for our PIL and related legal actions like asking for stay of specific commercial properties (for immediate relief). We are not against Dev just against over unplanned Dev that cannot be sustained.


What we need is mass transport, upkeep of current roads, living within the budget and then think of corridors after 3-4 years. And for car, bike and taxi users to use them at least 60% of journeys a week.


Sample video https://youtu.be/Y5xL3xd5fCI

Time line : around 2 months to get case going. Step 1 is collect money and a group who will sign.
step 2 send notice to government, we sent before but they ignored all, one point we will add is for reassessment of this area with water, traffic, air pollution, commute time on peak time during days when school, givernment, pvt all offices are working at 8:45-10am and 5:30-8pm
Get papers that lawyer asks.
3. file case, lawyer has to appear on our behalf in this type of case. We only need to give all facts in writing and sign
Will be good to have individuals and RWAs to sign with a set protocol to follow if a few leave during the case. There will be no refund of money but they can change mind. atleast 20 people should be 100% committed to each word before we proceed.

Voter id card : they have less stock. Please call 1950 from mobile or landline and complain if not got. Can go to their office. Folks who had camp do not plan to go. There is a small chance that they will drop ids at our flats. But we do not know more about that.

Voters should check their names on voter list, note down part and serial number. As it might change every time new list is released. Pl note it down a week before voting as it will help u find the name in polling booth easily.

Fyi Usually if Id card is ready the ward office will call and intimate the person.id cards r ready but hologram is yet to come. Hence delay.
