Bangalore, aside from its obvious infrastructure issues, lacks of a unifying building style. One sees a lot of houses built along independent lines and lacking coherence. Here are some suggestions for beautifying Bangalore, by introducing guidelines. Imagine seeing a primarily offwhite city , whith rooftop gardens, Mangalore tiled roofs and lilac or brick frontage. Imagine how it would look from the air when someone flies in, and from the ground !!

 

Guidelines for Independent houses:


1) Sloped Mangalore Tiles covering >= 30% of the roof, with water tanks under the tiles

(5% reduction in property tax)

2) A rooftop Garden covering >= 30% of the roof (5% reduction in property tax)

3) White or off white house colour + with a Lilac green/ brown/blue/purple frontage or a Brick or stone frontage (5% reduction in property tax)

4) 4 trees or fruit growing shrubs in Garden

Total deduction in property tax = 20%
