Community Initiatives

Residents in Jayamahal Extension, Bangalore, are now doing janitorial work to keep the roads and footpaths clean. Working as the citizens’ group, Community Initiative Jayamahal Area (CIJMA), these residents have planted 50 avenue tree saplings and ensured a scientific survey.

Intensive cleaning of the roads is being done with pourakarmikase, and so far 26 roads in the area have been cleaned. The initiative began with 100 residents, including children, last year with each family contributing Rs500 for necessary fund requirement. Considering the difference, BBMP authorities sooner or later will have to take the responsibility and match the present cleaning standards made by citizens.
