Chapter Summary

Bangalore, capital of the southern Indian state of Karnataka, has long been known as the 'Garden City'. The focal point for this chapter is to question to what extent can, did and do Bangaloreans use legal gateways to slow down or reverse the decline - to redress the balance between economy and environment. Much of the responsibility for the protection of Bangalore's environment lies in two locations: the various municipal government and development bodies, and the Pollution Control Board. The chapter focuses on the obstacles faced by citizens but obstacles faced by public sector bodies are, to the extent that they prevent state bodies from protecting the environment, obstacles to citizens. It addresses the intensification of land use in Bangalore. The chapter gives a recent example of the use of legal gateways in the area: the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project.
