Puttenahalli Neighbourhood Lake Improvement Trust (PNLIT), is a not-for-profit, charitable trust, registered under the Indian Trust Act 1882 - Rgn No. BNG(U)-JPN-129

-2010-11 dated 11th June 2010.

PNLIT has been actively working with the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), towards the rejuvenation and maintenance of Puttenahalli Lake, JP Nagar 7th Phase, Bangalore. 

In May 2011, the BBMP formally handed over the maintenance of Puttenahalli Lake to PNLIT, the first instance of a lake being given to a citizens' group. BBMP gives no financial assistance and PNLIT meets the expenses through public donations.  The renewal of MoU with BBMP is awaited (pending due to a court order).

Apart from Puttenahalli Lake, the trust is also involved with other activities related to the betterment of the neighbourhood.
