Programme held for transgenders to increase their awareness on legal aid Comments Email Print Written by Dipti Singh | Mumbai | Posted: September 20, 2014 2:23 am Transgenders, attending an event aimed at improving awareness of their legal rights, said that from denial of housing to criminalisation, they faced a series of hurdles compounded by the lack of legal aid. The Ulhasnagar Taluka Legal Services Authority along with community-based organisation (CBO) Kinnar Asmita and the student social workers of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS)  organised the awareness campaign at Shahad on Friday evening. Judges and senior lawyers from Thane and Ulhasnagar spoke on the availability of legal aid for the community. The speakers were judges from Ulhasnagar Taluka court — P I Mokashi and H V Joshi. Others included advocate Eknath Waghole, police inspectors from Ulhasnagar police station — Dhananjtoo and Mujra Rani, called Nani and a member of Kinnar Asmita. Members of the transgender community also spoke candidly about their day-to-day challenges stemming from lack of awareness of their rights. “The idea of holding such a programme originated while we were doing field work at the Thane district legal services authority. We found that although transgenders are entitled to legal aid, legal awareness is very low. This programme was an attempt to bridge the gap between the community and the criminal justice system. We are very happy that so many people came and actively participated,” said Kanupriya Sharma, second year student of criminology and justice at TISS. On April 15, 2014, a Supreme Court judgement declared transgenders as socially and economically backward class entitled to reservations in education and jobs. Recognising transgenders as a third gender, the apex court bench of justice K S Radhakrishnan and justice A N Sikri directed the Union and state governments to frame welfare schemes for them. However, according to Kinnar Asmita and other organisations, members of the community are unaware of the legal aid they can avail. Though Maharashtra has a provision for free legal aid for all transgenders,they are largely unable to access it due to lack of awareness and hostile attitude of the criminal justice system. Transgenders often face issues like illegal detention, denial of housing and criminalisation because of anti-beggary law and laws related to sex work. Chandni, one of the members of the transgender community who attended the programme, said, “People of our community are often treated as objects of ridicule and aversion. However, we get used to this kind of behaviour. But I am glad to know that there are some people who are concerned about us and have offered to help us in understanding what our legal rights are as citizens of this country.” Mujra Rani said, “Such awareness programme will help people of our community fight back legally against the injustice done to them. According to me governments should introduce various welfare schemes and public awareness campaigns which will help erase the social stigma associated with  our community.” dipti.singh@expressindia.com Comments

The smart identity card embedded with a barcode will be pasted on the backrest of the auto rickshaw driver. The QR sticker will contain details pertaining to the owner of the auto rickshaw, his address etc along with the helpline numbers of traffic police, said police commissioner Vijay Kamble who flagged-off the event. As many as 5,000 such QR code stickers would be handed out to auto drivers in the first phase of the campaign and later it would be implemented at Bhiwandi, Ulhasnagar, Ambernath and Kalyan. The rickshaw drivers will have to pay Rs 100 to get this card and the particular police inspector of the traffic zones have been given the task to fix the stickers after collecting the necessary documents from the rickshaw owner. "Also a mobile application 'safe journey' shall be available at the download store of Android mobile phones. In case of any emergency, the commuter can open the application scan the bar code and the details of the driver will be sent to their kin," Rashmi Karandikar, (DCP Traffic) told TOI. However, the commuters are apprehensive about the move and so are the rickshaw drivers. A commuter, Vishwanath Kandhare, said, "I think the initiative would work for the commuters using android smart phones. However, the one's who are using the basic mobile phones will not be able to avail the facility. Though the helpline numbers are available very few people would spare time to complain about the rickshaw driver." "Also, I have learnt that though the auto drivers are bound to flash their permit and license in the rickshaw not even a handful of them do it, so I doubt whether they will put smart identity card," he added. A rickshaw driver on condition of anonymity said, "We are told to shell out Rs 100 for this identity card, however, where we park the auto the miscreants could easily take it off as earlier I have lost the took kits. Also, the commuters can take the disadvantage of this as even a slight misunderstanding can lead us in lurch for which we could unnecessary harassment at the hands of the traffic police.

On July 13, 2011, three bombs exploded at Opera House, Zaveri Bazar and a bus stop in Dadar left 27 dead. Mira Road residents Himmatbhai Gadhiya and Bhupatbhai Navadiya, Baburam Das from Bhayander and Lalchand Ahuja from Ulhasnagar died in the Opera House blast. Their families had not received the payout of Rs 3 lakh promised under a central scheme. An activist Prakash Sheth had filed a PIL seeking immediate release of funds following which the Bombay high court on Monday directed the state to release the compensation by 5pm on Wednesday. Each of the four families received the compensation by way of a fixed deposit (FD) in their bank accounts. "I am happy that the wait is finally over," said Pranoti Das, widow of Baburam. The families were expecting an interest on the principal amount considering the delay. "The compensation has been delayed by over three years. Had we kept the money in an FD earlier, we would have earned interest," said Kamil Navadiya, son of Bhupatbhai. The Navadiyas had received Rs 5 lakh compensation on July 16, 2011 and Rs 2 lakh on July 22, 2011. The Das family has been surviving on the interest earned on the Rs 7 lakh payout. "Considering the delay, the government should have paid us interest for the delayed period. The interest earned on the FDs is our only source of income," said Pranoti. Shailesh Gadhiya, son of blast victim, Himmatbhai, said his mother Savita is relieved that they don't have to chase government officials any more. "Each time we went to inquire about the status of the compensation we were saddened by the memories of the serial blasts," said Shailesh. The court had issued a contempt notice to the state chief secretary for failure to disburse compensation. The notice issued to the chief secretary is posted for hearing on October 6.

2014-09-162011 serial blasts: Bombay High Court orders state
2011 serial blasts: Bombay High Court orders state to hand over compensation by Wednesday Tuesday, 16 September 2014 - 7:40am IST | Agency: DNA Urvi Mahajani 4Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Chief secretary hauled up for failure to pay kin of blast victims File picture of the Zaveri Bazar site after the bomb blast on July 13, 2011 Salman Ansari DNA The Bombay High Court on Monday issued a contempt notice to the state chief secretary for failing to hand over compensation to the kin of victims of the 2011 serial blasts. A division bench of judges Abhay Oka and Girish Kulkarni observed that "prima facie there was contempt of order" and they directed the government to pay the amount through cheques or demand drafts by 5pm on Wednesday. The court also asked the government to submit a report on this by the next hearing in the matter on October 6. Where did govt fail? A month ago, the high court had directed the state government to authorize the Thane collector to disburse the compensation of Rs3 lakh – generally given by the Centre – to the kin of the serial bomb blasts that happened on July 13, 2011 at Zaveri Bazar and some other places. The amount was to be paid along with interest from October 18, 2011, when the compensation was announced, and the payment was to be made within four weeks. Who took up the case? The order was issued on a public interest petition by Prakash Seth, a jeweller from Zaveri Bazar, who pleaded that the kin of four victims from Thane and Ulhasnagar be given the compensation as soon as possible. Rahul Kadam, advocate for the petitioner, argued that the families of Himmatbhai Gadia, Baburam Das and Bhupatbhai Navadia of Thane and Lalchand Ahuja of Ulhasnagar had not received the compensation till date. There were others too, who had not been given the compensation, he said. A total 26 people were killed and about 130 injured in the coordinated explosions at Zaveri bazar, Opera House and Dadar (West). What is the petitioner's reaction? Seth said the government is known to act swiftly when it wants, otherwise it will sit on matters endlessly. "Some years ago, just before the election code of conduct was announced, the government issued as many as 57 GRs in a single day. In the case of the Bharat Ratna for Sachin Tendulkar also the decision was taken within 24 hours. Whereas the families of the blast victims have been waiting for over three years," Seth said. What was govt's excuse? On a query by the court, additional government pleader Samir Patil said the Thane collector had sent a reminder to the principal secretary to release the compensation amount. But there was no response from the government. The government had previously said that the Rs3 lakh was not disbursed by the collector as he did not have the authority to disburse more than Rs1.5 lakh. What was petitioner's counter? The advocate for the petitioner, however, informed the court that the central government had carried out the necessary amendment to the "Central scheme for assistance to civilian victims/family of victims of terrorist / communal and Naxal violence" and given powers to the collector to disburse Rs3 lakh. The court had also asked whether Rs3 lakh was enough compensation and expressed dissatisfaction with the system of awarding a standard compensation to families of those killed. Is compensation amount sufficient? In another public interest petition, advocate Rajeshwar Panchal sought that a just and fair amount should be given as compensation to the families of those killed in bomb blasts. The petition contended that the income of the deceased, the social status of families and number of dependents should be taken into account when deciding the amount of compensation. The advocate pointed out that the Motor Vehicles Act and the Workmen's Compensation Act laid down a formula to work out such compensation. The judges suggested that government lay out a workable policy for determining the quantum of compensation through amendments to the Workmen's Compensation Act and the Motor Vehicles Act. 4Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Bombay high courtGirish KulkarniMotor Vehicles ActNaxal violenceserial blastsState government

Das has to take care of her mother-in-law and son Abhishek (17), who gave up his dream of becoming an engineer and took up commerce. They have been meeting their daily expenses with the Rs 7 lakh compensation received from the state and Centre. Pranoti's sister, Aarti Mandal, till a few months ago was making rounds of the Thane collectorate to know the status of the pending Rs 3 lakh. "Since the last few months, we have stopped chasing the compensation. The family is surviving on interest earned from the Rs 7 lakh that has been put in a fixed deposit. The Rs 3 lakh will reduce our financial burden to some extend," said Pranoti, a resident of Bhayander. Four families from Thane, including Das, Himmatbhai Gadhiya, Bhupatbhai Navadiya from Mira Road and Lalchand Ahuja from Ulhasnagar have not received the Rs 3 lakh promised under the central scheme for assistance to civilian victims of terrorism/communalism/naxal violence. Families of other victims have received their compensation. The Bombay high court's intervention in disbursing the compensation by Wednesday has come as a ray of hope for the families. For Kumar Ahuja, the Rs 3 lakh will help getting his youngest sister Jyoti married off. Jyoti had to discontinue studies and take up a job after their father Lalchand died in the blast. A part of the Rs 7 lakh compensation has been used to get his sister Geeta married. Kumar said if compensation is announced, it should be disbursed without putting families to further grief. Kamil Navadiya has been corresponding with the Centre and state to know the status of the compensation. "The replies have always been vague. As if the loss of my father was not enough, I have to spend days together running from one government agency to another to know about the money," said Kamil, who is employed. His younger brother Niket is studying. The family received the Rs 7 lakh compensation towards the end of 2011. "The government should not announce compensations it cannot disburse," said Kamil. Shailesh Gadhiya, who is now doing the job that his father Himmatbhai did, said chasing the compensation has drained them, physically and mentally. The blasts | On July 13, 2011, between 6.54pm and 7:06pm, there were three blasts at Opera House, Zaveri Bazar and Dadar (W), leaving 27 dead and 131 injured. The compensation | Four families have not got compensation of Rs 3 lakh promised under a central scheme. They received Rs 5 lakh from the Maharashtra government and Rs 2 lakh from the Prime Minister's Relief Fund What HC told govt | It issued a contempt notice to the state chief secretary on September 15, for the government's failure to disburse compensation to four families and set a deadline of 5pm on September 17 The bottleneck | Files of the four families were forwarded by the Thane collectorate to the state home ministry. The court had in August told the state to disperse the compensation TIMES VIEW: Indians have learnt to take delayed government action in their stride. But even the usual red tape cannot inure us to delays in compensating the kin of those who have died in terror attacks. A terror attack is also the administration's failure in securing the citizen's life. A three-plus-year delay in moving files - to help grieving families - is inexcusable.

Justice Revati Dere ruled that no exemption has been granted to sick companies from being prosecuted under the Negotiable Instruments Act for dishonouring cheques. The plywood firm was dragged to court by an Ulhasnagar firm after two cheques issued to it for Rs 5.40 crore and Rs 2.40 lakh in 2012 were dishonoured. The company had claimed that it had approached the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (BIFR) under the Sick Industrial Companies Act in 2011. BIFR had ordered it not to make payment to unsecured creditors without its nod, the company claimed. The HC pointed out that the company had made the agreement with the firm after it had approached the BIFR. Also, it had not made any application to BIFR seeking its nod to release payments to the Ulhasnagar firm. "Criminal prosecution is neither for recovery of money nor for enforcement of any security. Section 138 of the NIA is a penal provision and entails a conviction and sentence, at the end of the criminal proceedings," said the judge.

2014-09-16Take stringent action against industries polluting
Take stringent action against industries polluting Ulhas river, green panel tells MPCB Comments Email Print Express News Service | Mumbai | Posted: September 17, 2014 4:18 am | Updated: September 17, 2014 4:19 am The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has ordered the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) to take stringent action against industries along Ulhas river that continue to discharge industrial effluent beyond admissible limits. “There are large number of industries which still are found not complying with the standards and MPCB assures that immediate action will be initiated against the defaulting industries and the report on the action taken will be submitted within a period of six weeks,” said the order. The permissible level of pollutants in the discharge of industries is limited to 2200 mg/l Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) before reaching the Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP), and the permissible limits for treated effluent reaching the Ulhas river is 250 mg/l COD. However, the affidavit filed by the MPCB has found that several industries are not complying with these standards. The tribunal, comprising Justice V R Kingaonkar and expert member Ajay Deshpande, was hearing an application by NGO Vanashakti which alleged that industries were severely polluting the Ulhas river and sought a clean-up of the river. Even the CETP performance was “not up to the mark” during the last six months, MPCB officials stated. Consequently, the MPCB has issued a direction to Dombivali Better Environment System Association (DBESA) and has forfeited the bank guarantee of the Dombivali Common Effluent Treatment Plant. Moreover, the board found two industries generating excess effluent by utilising excess water from tankers and assured the tribunal that “appropriate action” will be taken against the units. The MPCB undertook the inspection only after the tribunals order, based on a complaint from petitioner NGO Vanashakti. Meanwhile, the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation (UMC) has commenced the tendering process for contract to clean up the Ulhas river. mumbai.newsline@expressindia.com Comments

dna special: MMRDA scraps jumbo dumping ground that would have lasted 46 years Sunday, 14 September 2014 - 5:25am IST | Agency: DNA Ateeq Shaikh 1Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has dumped its grand plans of having a common landfill site at Taloja which would have accommodated the solid and electronic waste of the city as well as the surrounding municipalities for the next 46 years. The proposed sanitary landfill and E-waste plant was meant to have taken care of all waste generated by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) up to the year 2060. The four municipal corporations of Thane, Kalyan-Dombivali, Ulhasnagar and Bhiwandi-Nizampur, and two municipal councils of Ambernath and Kulgaon-Badlapur were to dump their refuse in this landfill site. As per the plans finalised by the development authority, the e-waste facility was to come up over four hectares for scientific disposal of waste generated in Mumbai and MMR. Annually, the state generates around 20,000 tonnes of e-waste, out of which Mumbai alone contributes 11,000 tonnes. The regional solid waste management project that was to come up over 117 hectares was expected to clear around 2,000 metric tonnes of garbage daily. The cost of the project was Rs 1,000 crore and Rs 8 crore for solid waste management and e-waste facilities respectively. On August 29, Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan gave his consent to the scrapping of the contract with Hyderabad-based Ramky Infrastructure, appointed for setting up the facility and operate at the site. The agency was reportedly blacklisted by some civic bodies of India. Moreover, according to MMRDA sources, the civic bodies which had initially agreed to transfer their waste to Taloja later backtracked, objecting to the tipping fee of Rs 819 per tonne. This was the latest in a line of big-ticket projects that have been scrapped by the MMRDA, namely funicular railway (Rs 100 crore) at Matheran, heliport facility (Rs 175 crore) in Mumbai, innovation park (Rs 10,000 crore), mangrove park at Gorai (Rs 100 crore), power generation project, Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd metro rail, etc. Another big-ticket project shelved The landfill site was meant to accommodate solid and electronic waste generated by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) It was to come up over 117 hectares and expected to clear around 2,000 metric tonnes of garbage daily.

Why Kalyan-Dombivli will drive Mumbai's realty market now Both Kalyan and Dombivli have an industrial belt up to Badlapur. This provides very good employment opportunities for people residing around the region. Comments (2) Like this story, share it with millions of investors on M3 Why Kalyan-Dombivli will drive Mumbai's realty market now Both Kalyan and Dombivli have an industrial belt up to Badlapur. This provides very good employment opportunities for people residing around the region. Post your opinion here   Anjali Agarwalmoneycontrol.com Buoyed by the positive sentiment led by the new government, the Indian real estate market is at the cusp of a recovery. According to a report by the real estate portal commonfloor.com, the twin city of Kalyan-Dombivli, on the outskirts of Mumbai, will be one of the biggest beneficiaries of this boom. The Kalyan-Dombivli stretch comes under Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) and forms a part of Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). This respective location is witnessing the development of new residential projects at a fast pace. Developers that operate in this area include Lodha Group, Nirmal Lifestyle, Raunak Group, Laxmi Housing Builders & DevelopersLaxmi, Versat ile Housing and Mehta Group, among others. Kalyan-Dombivli's real estate has recently witnessed a boom, primarily due to the increasing prices in Mumbai suburbs and growing demand for affordable housing in Mumbai. A proposal for extending the Navi Mumbai metro rail to Kalyan too has fueled the growth for housing in Kalyan-Dombivli, highlighted the report. Also Read: Mumbai realty prices see modest appreciation in Jan-March The twin city has large industrial belt to its south-east from Kalyan to Badlapur. There are several small and large industries concentrated in this region. The availability of local trains from Dombivli has made it a prominent suburb of MMR. The region has seen a rise in population in recent years which reflects its increasing demand in the last few years. The Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) has developed a big industrial complex around Dombivli. Kalyan junction is currently one of the major railway stations on the central line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway network. It is also the third busiest station in the suburban railway network, after Thane and Andheri. Factors driving growth: 1) The primary factor driving the real estate growth in the Kalyan-Dombivli is the sky-rocketing prices in Mumbai suburbs, coupled with the growing demand for affordable housing. Mumbai continues to attract migrants who come to the financial capital with hopes of employment opportunities. This has increased the demand for affordable housing. Yet, the present capital values have led a huge gap in demand and supply, though there is unsold inventory of up to four years. Property values in the Kalyan and Dombivli area offers projects within the affordable range. For example, the average property value in Dombivli East is about Rs 5,440 per sq. ft while it is about Rs 6,040 per sq. ft in Dombivli West. The average property value in Kalyan East is about Rs 5,230 per sq. ft while the average property value in Kalyan West is about Rs 5,920 per sq. ft, the report added. 2)   Another factor driving demand is the availability of industrial belts and improving infrastructure around this area. Both Kalyan and Dombivli have an industrial belt up to Badlapur. This provides very good employment opportunities for people residing around the region. 3) The City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) has planned to extend its Belapur-Taloja metro rail service up to Kalyan and Ulhas Nagar. This is expected to give a big boost to the economy as well as real estate around Kalyan. MMRDA has also planned to lay down a road networks including a 29 km Kalyan ring road in Kalyan region. 4) Kalyan and Dombivli have very good connectivity to parts of Mumbai and other cities via the Kalyan-Shilphata Road, Agra Road and National Highway 4. This also increases the growth prospects of the region. The proposed Navi Mumbai International Airport is at a distance of less than 35 kms. According to CommonFloor co-founder and CEO Sumit Jain, Kalyan-Dombivli realty market witnessed stagnation in property prices over the past few quarters which could be primarily attributed to the overall slowdown in the real estate market in the country. However, affordable property prices, good connectivity to other key areas in the MMR and the various market trends go on to indicate that the region has good growth potential in the near future. “With sentiment improving all around in the realty sector, the area is set to witness high demand for affordable housing. With various infrastructure projects in the pipeline, the realty market here is showing positive trends and it is expected that one can easily witness a price appreciation of about 20-25 per cent over the next few quarters," he added.   Challenges One of the biggest challenges in Kalyan-Dombivli is lack of sufficient civic and social infrastructure.  Since the area is still developing, it needs well-developed malls, hospitals, schools etc. However, the situation is better than many other areas in the vicinity. According to Jain, despite having good connectivity to other areas, the time taken to travel to Mumbai CBDs is significantly high since the major mode of transportation is the Mumbai local train. Hence, this is one of the major reasons why the area mostly houses people who work in close vicinity like Thane and Navi Mumbai. Kalyan-Dombivli region's residential real estate is driven by end-users as well as investors as the region has a good mixture of under-construction and ready-to-occupy projects. Apart from this, the few other areas to buy affordable property in Mumbai include Mira Bhayander, Mira Road, Dahisar, Ghodbunder Road, Vasai-Virar, Ulhasnagar, Kamothe, Ulwe and New Panvel. The prices in these localities range anywhere between Rs 4,500 - Rs 7,000 per sq. ft, Jain told moneycontol.com. The government’s initiatives towards the sector have brought several regulations and with funding for the implementation of several projects also coming its way, the market is already gaining momentum. By the early quarters of 2015, CommonFloor expects the overall market to bounce back.

Urban Development Department (UDD) Deputy Secretary S K Salimath, in an affidavit, told Justices A S Oka and G S Kulkarni that “competent authorities” of Mumbai, Thane, Pune and Ulhasnagar agglomerations had approached police stations. Salimath said, “These agglomerations issued notices to the concerned allottees to surrender such tenements within a period of 30 days. Simultaneously, the competent authorities approached respective police stations to register FIRs against such double allottees.” A chart of double allottees in the four different agglomerations discloses there are four allottees in Thane, five in Ulhasnagar, two in Pune and five in Mumbai. In addition, the Housing Department of the state told the judges that 11 cases were found where flats were secured under 2 per cent and 5 per cent discretionary quota. Of these, seven beneficiaries had initially secured a flat under 2 per cent and later procured a flat under 5 per cent quota. “Hence, the UDD had been communicated by a letter dated August 30, 2014, to take necessary action in these cases,” said department’s Joint Secretary Prakash Laxman Pathak in his affidavit. In the remaining four cases, according to Pathak, the allottees had initially secured a flat under 5 per cent quota and were later allotted a flat under 2 per cent in Pune and Mumbai boards of Maharashtra Housing Development Authority. The state government had said they will initiate criminal prosecution against those who obtain double or multiple flats under CM’s quota by giving false information to the government. The HC had then asked the state to inform as to how many FIRs had been filed against those who had secured double allotment of houses from CM’s quota by giving false declaration of flats. The court was acting on activist Ketan Tirodkar’s PIL, which argued beneficiaries of flats under CM’s quota were either related to MLAs or MPs or were influential politicians. He has alleged that the government had not prosecuted those who were allotted two or more flats, either by filing FIR or canceling their allotments. The High Court had on March 20, this year, set aside the state’s policy for allotment of houses to the beneficiaries under the CM’s quota. The HC described the policy as “illegal, irrational and unfair” and asked the state to come up with a fresh policy, which should be transparent and fair. aamir.khan@expressindia.com Comments
2014-09-07Diverting nullah not practical, UMC tells NGT - In
Diverting nullah not practical, UMC tells NGT Comments Email Print According to the MPCB, of the total 90 million litres per day (MLD) sewage generated from UMC, 10 MLD is discharged without treatment into Ulhas river. (Source: Express photo) Written by Anjali Lukose | Mumbai | September 8, 2014 12:00 am After the National Green Tribunal (NGT) rapped the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation (UMC) last week for not diverting the Khemani nullah that carries sewage directly into Ulhas river, the UMC has now informed the tribunal that diverting the nullah is not practical. Although the NGT, in May, had given the UMC three months to divert the nullah, the corporation has now suggested another technical solution that will take at least two years to be completed at the cost of approximately Rs 20 crore. “We can create a sump well and by arresting the flow of the nullah, the polluted water from the nullah can be lifted from the sump well and released near Shantinagar sewage station,” stated UMC commissioner Balaji N Khatgaonkar in an affidavit to the tribunal recently. Enlisting the details of the new technical plan to ensure polluted water from the nullah does not reach the Ulhas river, the UMC stated that the project would take approximately two years for completion. The UMC further stated that this new project has received administrative approval and fund allocation during the general body meeting held in August. Meanwhile, in 2013, claiming that the older proposal to divert the nullah had got costlier, the UMC had sent a proposal to seek funds under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM) for diverting the nullah. According to the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB), of the total 90 million litres per day (MLD) sewage generated from UMC, 10 MLD is discharged without treatment through Khemani nullah into the drinking water zone of Ulhas river. The tribunal had asked the UMC to divert the nullah in May and warned the UMC that in case of non-compliance within three months, it would give directions to the state urban development department to take control of the affairs of Ulhasnagar and deal with the problems of pollution in the area. Moreover, a UMC official had stated in the tribunal that an order to divert the nullah has been issued, which the tribunal has now taken up as no order had been. The tribunal, earlier this week, asked the UMC whether an administrative action has been taken against the defaulter (official) for the incorrect statement and if no action has been taken, then what is being proposed. The UMC in reply has stated that an “inadvertent and unintentional mistake occurred while making the statement and therefore no action requires to be taken” and has tendered an unconditional apology. anjali.lukose@expressindia.com Comments

Senior police officers and firemen arrived to assess safety and security at pandals. On Friday, Manas Lulla (13) was electrocuted at a Ganpati pandal in Ulhasnagar. Saturday's audit was scheduled before the accident but the mishap focused attention on the need for regulation. Chaperoned by members of the Fire and Security Association of India, the team of experts travelled through Fort, Lalbaug-Parel, Chembur, Ghatkopar, Andheri and Borivli. Additional divisional fire officer H V Girkar who led his department said, "The purpose is to create awareness about fire safety by giving information rather than passing strictures." Everywhere he went, Girkar advised mandals to devise emergency evacuation procedures. Meanwhile, police inspector Vijay Mahamunkar of the protection branch supervised general security. His men checked to see if pandals had installed metal detectors, CCTVs and public address systems. FSAI president Suresh Menon said, "We will present awards to three best mandals after Anant Chaturdashi." Officials were impressed by the arrangements at the Fort Ichchhapurti Ganesh opposite GPO. Mandal spokesman Rupesh Surve said they always instal CCTV cameras, fire extinguishers, metal detectors and devise emergency exits.

Deepak Panduran Chimankar, a sectional engineer, was given an additional charge as the assistant municipal commissioner of the UMC a month ago while Parshuram Gaikwad is a LBT inspector and both were allegedly extorting money from citizens. The duo, however, ran out of luck after demanding Rs 2 lakh from the complainant who owns a plastic manufacturing company that falls in the UMC's jurisdiction. "The accused allegedly demanded Rs 2 lakh for leniency on the LBT collection towards the complainant. The bribe amount was brought down to a lakh," said a police official. "The complainant then approached the Thane ACB which laid a trap on Kalyan-Ambernath road and caught the duo red-handed," said Datta Karale, superintendent police of Thane ACB.

2014-09-03Identify industries polluting Ulhas river, NGT ask
Identify industries polluting Ulhas river, NGT asks MPCB Express News Service | Mumbai | September 3, 2014 10:57 am     Print Comments Summary NGT directed the municipal commissioner to file an affidavit giving suitable explanation for noncompliance of the order by Wednesday. Tweet This The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Monday directed the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) to identify industries utilising the Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) and polluting Ulhas river by utilising excess water and discharging effluent beyond permissible limit. “We direct the official concerned to file an affidavit to enlist names of concerned industries, who are members of the CETP, so as to identify the polluters,”the NGT order stated. The tribunal, comprising Justice V R Kingaonkar and expert member Ajay Deshpande, was hearing an application by NGO Vanashakti which alleged that industries were severely polluting the Ulhas river and sought the clean-up of the river. The counsel for the NGO pointed out that industries which were closed earlier by the MPCB  are now utilising excess water brought at units by means of tankers against the terms of consent and thereby more effluents are being discharged, which is causing pollution. The NGT found that the affidavit of the deputy engineer of the Maharashtra Industrial Development  Corporation (MIDC) reveals that the CETP is being used by the industries, which shows that there is a violation of parameters. Further, the NGT rapped the municipal commissioner of the Ulhasnagar municipal corporation for noncompliance of an earlier oder to divert the Khemani nullah that carried effluent directly into the river, thereby polluting it. The NGT directed the municipal commissioner to file an affidavit giving suitable explanation for noncompliance of the order by Wednesday. “Why an incorrect statement has been made that the municipal corporation has already passed an order to divert Khemani nullah. In case such inaccuracy has occurred in making the statement, whether  an administrative action has been taken against the defaulter and if no action has been taken, then what proposed action is being taken,” the order stated. The NGT  also asked the municipal corporation to state if it had Rs 20 crore available so that it could be immediately transferred to an escrow account of the divisional commissioner of the Konkan division as guarantee for the work of cleaning the river and whether tendering process or a proposal is underway. mumbai.newsline@expressindia.com

Sources from the traffic department informed that the identity cards will have all the details of the autorickshaw owner, along with the helpline numbers of traffic cops. The cards will also have the women's helpline number 103. Dr Rashmi Karandikar, deputy commissioner of police (traffic) said that the identity cards will have the name of the rickshaw driver/owner, address, permit number and badge number, all of which will be embedded with a bar code. The identity card will be fixed behind the driver's seat so that the commuters can see it. It will also be helpful in identifying and distinguishing between the legal and illegal auto rickshaws. Karandikar added that they are in the process of launching a mobile application 'safe journey', along with the card, which will be used to scan the bar code. So in case of an emergency, the commuter can open the application, scan the bar code and the details of the driver will be sent to his kin. "The process to collect information of each of the rickshaws has begun and we will start distributing them from September 15. Rickshaw drivers will have to pay a mere Rs. 100 to get this card," she added. The traffic department has already conducted meetings with rickshaw unions. In the first phase, around 5,000 rickshaws in Thane will be asked to install the cards. In the later stage of the drive, auto drivers from Bhiwandi, Ulhasnagar Ambernath and Kalyan will be told to put up the identity cards.

2014-09-02NHRC to act on mid-day report on factory violation
NHRC to act on mid-day report on factory violations By Sharad Vyas |Posted 02-Sep-2014 The contradictions highlighted in the July 21 mid-day report between the Directorate of Industrial Safety and Health’s statement on the prevalence of industrial diseases in the state and the situation on the ground have led to an environmental advocacy group asking the human rights commission to probe the issue further; the complaint has been admitted by the commission mid-day’s July 21 report on factories in and around the city posing a major threat to the health of workers and residents in their vicinity has attracted the notice of an environmental advocacy group, which is also fighting to ensure that justice is served to victims of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy Victim of lies: While the management and medical team of his Ambernath factory kept assuring that there was nothing wrong with him, worker Yogesh Sawant kept exposing himself to the deadly asbestos dust in the factory loom. His was one of the first confirmed cases of the asbestosis in the state; (below In a complaint that was admitted by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), the Toxics Watch Alliance (TWA) has alleged that senior state officials withheld information on the prevalence of industrial diseases in Maharashtra. Citing mid-day’s investigation on the issue and the contradictions it highlights in the claims made by Directorate of Industrial Safety and Health (DISH), it has asked the NHRC to probe the issue further. mid-day’s reports on July 21 In a separate letter to the chief secretary of Maharashtra, based on the mid-day investigation, the TWA has demanded immediate action against officials of DISH who had “misrepresented facts and made a factually incorrect” submission to the NHRC in its affidavit in an ongoing case (number 2951/30/0/2011). In his statement, DISH Director V S Moray had claimed on May 10, 2012, that there were about 2,696 workers in nearly 16 asbestos manipulating units in Maharashtra, but not a single case of asbestosis and mesothelioma had been detected by DISH. “This was factually incorrect and tantamount to misrepresentation of facts since media reports have clearly shown now (that) as many as 13 cases of asbestosis and other industrial diseases exist in Maharashtra. This was also established by an inspection report of the National Institute of Occupational Health (NIOH) Ahmedabad,” TWA Convenor, Gopal Krishna has said in his letter to the chief secretary of Maharashtra and senior officials of the NHRC. NHRC public relations official Jaimini Kumar Srivastava told mid-day that the rights body is looking into the latest reports from Maharashtra as part of the case. “Our senior officers are apprised of it,” he said. Long time comingAs part of the ongoing case, the NHRC had, in 2011, asked all chief secretaries, including Maharashtra’s, to submit a report in four weeks on asbestos mining and its effect on workers in factories. The TWA had claimed that, in India alone, 50,000 workers were getting affected by asbestos cancer every year The TWA had sought the rights panel’s intervention for a ban on the use of chrysotile asbestos, which causes incurable diseases. “The state governments must also, based on complaints, provide for grant of compensation package for the victims of asbestosis,” the NHRC letter of July 1, 2011, to the chief secretaries had said. The mid-day investigations (‘Danger, factory ahead’/ ‘They lied to me for 15 years of my life, says asbestosis-afflicted labourer’) which appeared on July 21 had revealed how 13 cases of factory diseases in Mumbai and surrounding regions had been reported. This was the first time that industrial diseases had been reported in Maharashtra. This was based on an inspection carried out by a Gujarat-based central agency over the past two years. mid-day had reported how Yogesh Sawant, a worker who was being exposed to asbestos on a daily basis and was repeatedly assured by factory owners and doctors that everything was fine, was diagnosed with asbestosis by NIOH, a central agency. An internal report of Moray, Director, DISH (Maharashtra) had also been accessed by this newspaper. “In stark contrast to what Mr Moray had submitted to NHRC, his own internal report admitted that NIOH inspections had raised a question mark on Maharashtra’s system of detecting factory diseases. This apart, there were stark inconsistencies in the submission made to NHRC on behalf of the Maharashtra government,” Krishna told mid-day. Moray had said that private doctors were repeatedly inspecting the factories along with DISH teams, but after the NIOH visit, his internal report read, “This visit by NIOH has exposed our weaknesses and left a big question mark over our inspection, supervision, and medical examination methods. This is a big embarrassment for Maharashtra.” 'Going scot-free'In its recent letter to the Maharashtra chief secretary, the TWA also claimed that it has been clearly established that factory owners and managers were allowed to go scot-free, despite violating norms. The inspections revealed that 23 asbestos factories, host to 2,583 workers, and several other factories in the MMR region were not conducting the mandatory membrane filter test to monitor the presence of asbestos fibre in the work environment, and were not even conducting training programmes for the workers. The DISH inspections had found that M/s Ashadeep Frictions, M/s Graphics India (Ambernath), Eastwell Asbestos Industries (Ulhasnagar), Hyderabad Industries (Thane), Mechanical Packaging (Tarapur), Nella Asbestos (Dahanu) and Wilson Products (Kolhapur) were not carrying out the all-important membrane tests. Of the seven inspections in Thane, six factories had not organised training programmes for workers — M/s Champion Seals, M/s Mechanical Packaging, M/s Standard Clutches & Spares, M/s Standard Friction, M/s Ashadeep Frictions and Graphics India. “These are the same factories that were mentioned in the reply filed in the NHRC by the Government of Maharashtra in 2012. They (state officials) had submitted then that there was nothing wrong with these factories. This again was a lie. And in view of these latest facts, the state chief secretary’s urgent intervention is quite germane to rectify the incorrect submission to NHRC on behalf of the Government of Maharashtra and to file a fresh reply in the Case No. 2951/30/0/2011 in order to ensure justice for workers, their families and the communities living in the vicinity of asbestos-based factories,” Krishna told mid-day. Nexus mid-day had reported how 100-odd private doctors in the state are being monitored by a single government surgeon, who not only authorises examinations but performs them as well. The lone government surgeon for Maharashtra, Dr Atul Band, conducted 2,500 tests last year and confirmed the 13 cases highlighted by the NIOH. “There is a clear nexus of private doctors and factory inspectors. This nexus is just fooling the people of Maharashtra into believing that all is well in our factories and industries. But, unfortunately, that is not the case,” he had said. When DISH director, V S Moray, was asked for details of industrial cases detected by certified private doctors, he had said, “This is confidential information and not in the public domain, as much as we want to keep things transparent.”
