The town panchayats in karnataks are well organized to collect money from residents and monitor collections. But, they do not do anything in return. They are mandated to provide Garbage Collection, Maintain Street Lighting on Public Main Roads as well as inside roads within residential layout, they are mandated to constantly check air quality and ground water levels and quality.
None of these are done by the panchayats. I have written many letters to the local Panchayats on Mysore Road. Nothing. No Action for past 10 years. This is one of the biggest failures in Administration of the country by all past governments.
