Thanks to your support, Mr. Manivannan P (Secretary to Govt of Karnataka) reached out to us and formed a Joint Action Team (JAT) to find a sustainable solution to our problem by January 2018.
The Joint Action Team consists of citizens of the affected neighbourhood, KCDC officials (MD, Plant CEO among others), Special Commissioner for Solid Waste Management, BBMP officials, Lake officials and various supervisors responsible for the smooth running operations of the KCDC plant.
We've had a few JAT meetings already, action items have been identified and assigned owners. The actions are being tracked and followed-up on almost a daily basis to ensure quick implementation. The JAT is also discussing sustainable ways in which the waste intake at the KCDC compost plant can be reduced to the required amount, the rejects including RDF (refuse-derived fuel from the waste) backlog can be cleared up, and the unbearable stench in the air can be cleared.
