– While checking the BIAL’s progress status from their site, which looks pretty impressive.

The Terminal building : At the terminal building almost 55% of the roof elements have been placed. Water proofing of the roof elements and front glass fa├žade structural works have commenced.

Mechanical and electrical works within the building are in progress.

Air traffic control (ATC) tower & technical block : The construction work of the top cabin at the ATC tower is in progress. The height of the Air traffic control tower (ATC) tower is now 52 meters. The total height of the tower including the top cabin will be a total of 65 meters when complete. Other installation works such as electrical, fire fighting, plumbing and sanitation is in progress and it is nearly 70% complete.

Most important fact that I notice was such a comprehensive, categorical information and systematic approach the professional way!! I hope all public projects in India should take this as an example and keep their information up-to-date, systematic and most importantly customer oriented….

    Very much true. BDA/BBMP…etc should take a note. Most of the sites have Bangalore map so old that you cannot find Jayanagar in it :-).

    This isn’t a public project Rajesh, so the dynamics are different. That is perhaps why BIAL seems more proactive about giving out information than other RTI complaint public bodies.

    I remember that some survey a few months ago said that Karnataka bodies scored poorly on RTI compliance.

    Yes SB, i know, BIAL is independent of our government miseries. I have just written to the KA information commissioner that their link on karnataka.gov.in about PIO list itself is not attached to proper document and there is no way to find our the all the PIO’s there.

    dangi, nice post.
    bmrc.co.in is another impressive site. Its UI is sarkaari but the content is good and more importantly it has regular pertinent updates.
    i first swooned when they put Justice Shivasankara Bhat’s report online. Then they topped it by putting up detailed CAD drawings of land plans.
    if you like these types of things these are all must reads.

    people/projects that have skeletons will not be so open. NICE is an example of that. ditto BDA/BMP especially their tenders and projects pages. worst is MUDA. all gloss no stuff.

    contrast that to hdmc.gov.in
    ravi checkout hdmc’s maps…
    nalli pipu also you can see.

    Right said Tarle. I like BBMP site and look fwd to their updates.

    mistyped there, meant BMRC, not BBMP. BMRC is a much younger body, so is BIAL – may be that explains their enthusiasm.

    BBMP site did become better after they went with egov, but still not seeing as frequent updates. I am waiting for their grievance redressal module to come online. They said Sep 2006, hopefully soon!
