The owners of these plots will no longer have to take prior permission of the collector for the conversion if the plots are earmarked in the region's development plan for residential townships or industrial units. The collector's nod, which was so far mandatory, had given rise to complaints of undue delays and corruption. The move will pare both, officials said. By rough estimates, tens of thousands of hectares will be unlocked because of the cabinet's Wednesday decision. It will benefit the municipal corporations and councils in Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai, Kalyan-Dombivli, Ulhasnagar, Vasai-Virar, Nalasopara, Ambernath, Kulgaon-Badlapur, Panvel, Alibaug, among others. "Land owners will have to seek the permission of the municipal body for their non-agricultural plans. Once the municipal corporation or municipal council gives the go-ahead, the owner just needs to intimate the collector in 30 days. No permission from the collector is required. Revenue officials will then recover a one-time land conversion tax and a non-agriculture cess," said an official after the state cabinet approved the move. This process will apply to those who are direct owners of the land. For those who have leased land from the government, the collector's permission is still required, though the conversion procedure has been made simpler for them as well. "The leaseholder will have to offer a certain share of the profitable deal on the land to the government," said another official. According to sources, masses of application for land conversion to non-agricultural use are pending, particularly in Mumbai region and around, stalling development. In rural areas, where there are no municipal corporations or councils, revenue officials will now be asked to create a databank of conversion applications, so that decisions can be made quickly, an official said. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/followceleb.cms?alias=Maharashtra govt,conversion of agricultural land

Maha cabinet cuts red-tape in Mumbai region land purchases; but home buyers need not celebrate By Sunainaa Chadha Realtors can salivate. Tens of thousands of hectares of land may soon be unlocked in the  Mumbai Metropolitan Region, thanks to a decision taken by the state cabinet on Wednesday (16 June) to streamline the clearance of agricultural lands for developmental activities. But home buyers need not salivate. Their homes are unlikely to get any cheaper, though the rate of appreciation might taper off. The state cabinet's decision means land owners in Maharashtra will no longer need the district collector's permission to sell agricultural land for non-agricultural purposes as the state cabinet scrapped the system of seeking permission for changing the status of agricultural land to "Non-Agriculture" for land already earmarked in the development plan (DP) for residential and industrial purposes. In other words, the entire process of acquiring NA status has been brought under one roof, the town planning authority, instead of the collector.  Once the land owners have secured the permission of the municipality for their non-agricultural plans, the owner just needs to intimate the collector in 30 days, following which revenue officials will recover a one-time land conversion tax and non-agricultural cess. Earlier, builders were expected to pay upwards of Rs 5 lakh per acre as kickbacks for this change of use. The move is aimed at boosting housing and infrastructure since NA clearance for any property takes around 12  months owing to the huge backlog of applications with all collectors and the involvement of multiple departments and which result in project delays and cost escalations. Currently, people have to go  over seven different stages to obtain NA permissions from the district authorities concerned. This procedure is not only  time-consuming but also encourages corruption. Now that one stage of the process is done away with, developers breathe a bit easier. " Obtaining the collector's nod, which was earlier mandatory, resulted in a lot of time lag and added a huge bribery cost to the price of land. For instance, if a developer had to pay Rs 200 per sq ft for land, the actual cost of land would only be Rs 20 while the remaining would be 'corruption charges," said an industry official who did not want to be identified. Underhand payments make it difficult for developers to secure bank funding while purchasing land, pushing them into the arms of private equity players or secondary sources of money, where interests rates are often as high as 25-30 percent. Developers have often claimed that approval costs constitute 40 percent of the total cost  of construction and, if this process can be curtailed, costs would come down significantly. "The government's move of doing away with the district collector's nod is a major victory for developers in the state who will now have to pay less than half the cost for procuring land and this benefit will ultimately benefit the home buyer," said Pankaj Kapoor, MD of real estate consultancy firm Liases Foras. This decision will also help land owners who have their agricultural lands at the edge of large cities and towns which are getting rapidly urbanised. So in essence  Thane, Navi Mumbai, Kalyan-Dombivli, Ulhasnagar, Vasai-Virar, Nalasopara, Ambernath, Kulgaon-Badlapur, Panvel and Raigad could not only see more supplies in the residential space but price increases in these areas will also be capped. A press release issued by the Chief Minister’s office said that land holders who are keen to convert their agriculture lands to non-agriculture only have to inform the municipal and revenue authorities by a written application. Besides, a data bank will be created at all district levels for compiling the necessary documents in order to give the relevant permissions in a decentralised manner. So each department will now demand all documents separately from the applicants. Says Samanthak Das, Director, Research, at Knight Frank India, " The move is a definite positive for real estate players because less government intervention implies a lower transaction cost. Any government intervention in land deals has a rate attached to it. So even if one step is eliminated, the transaction cost for the builder will come down which should be ideally passed on to home buyers." Das, however, does not expect an immediate price drop in the far-flung areas of Panvel and Thane because of other existing fixed costs. "But now that more supply will be easily released, the future growth of prices will be pushed down. So if you were expecting a 10 percent capital appreciation in Panvel, that expectation will now be truncated to 6-7 percent, but it will not impact current prices. Anuj Nagpal, MD, investment solutions, DTZ, also has a similar view. "Most of the agricultural land that falls under the residential zone is only in the far-flung suburbs of Mumbai. But the builders are unlikely to pass on the benefits of this to end-consumers and more likely to pocket the gains themselves. However, they may also cut prices in the medium term to push up sales. For Mumbaikars, this news offers little solace," he told Firstbiz. However, there are concerns that unrestricted change of land use permissions could result in land grabbing tactics by corporates and realtors. "The act of doing away with the district collector's nod is just to prevent redundancy and improve systemic efficiencies. If a land portion is already designated in the development plan for residential use, there is no point in duplicating approvals and delaying the process," explains Kapoor. While the time taken to seek approvals will surely be reduced, one cannot term the government's move as laying down the red carpet for builders in the state. Bribery is not going to die out given the new clauses in the centre's Lan Acquisition Act of 2013. In its current form, the land bill specifies the compensation one has to pay— two times the market rate for land close to urban areas, and four times elsewhere. As Firstbiz said earlier, "This is not sensible for it is this clause that interferes completely with market mechanisms in land pricing. Fixing any price always leads to corruption and funny deals." But given that the provisions of the Act will be applicable in cases of land acquisition of 50 acres in urban areas or 100 acres in rural areas, most residential, commercial and retail projects will be immune to them as they occupy smaller land parcels. Says Lalit Kumar Jain, Chairman of the developers' lobby, Confederation of Real Estate Developers' Association of India: “The uncertainty in acquiring land will deter developers, especially those developing huge townships. But the land bill as such will not impact private developers because a builder acquiring 100 acres of land is very uncommon." by Sunainaa Chadha More From Sunainaa Chadha.

2014-07-17New registration deadline issued to doctors by PMC
New registration deadline issued to doctors by PMCBy Mayuri PhadnisMayuri Phadnis, Pune Mirror | Jul 18, 2014, 02.30 AM ISTTweetShare on Linkedin CommentsMoreGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleEmail this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizecommentsTweetShare MoreEmail this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizeURL copied to clipboardGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleMy Saved articlesAt the moment, around 2.5 metric tonnes of biomedical waste are generated within PMC limits every year. FILE PHOTOSRELATEDBIOMEDICAL WASTE DISPOSAL Citing penal action if doctors ignore 2-month deadline, civic body claims it is charging lowest possible disposal rates, all issues have been resolved; IMA still not completely satisfied, says some doctors generate less waste A year after doctors across the city hit the streets to protest the civic body's diktat on biomedical waste disposal, the Pune Municipal Corporation's (PMC) Health department has issued a new deadline for hospitals, clinics, blood banks and pathology labs to register for the scientific disposal of such waste. The corporation has now warned that any practitioners failing to do the needful within two months will face penal action. A similar PMC notification in mid- 2013 had seen doctors claim that charges levied for such a service were too high, and additionally allege that while the drop-off points for biomedical waste were too few, the pick-up timings were also odd. At the time, doctors had protested that it was not feasible for them to leave their patients and wait endlessly to drop off their garbage. However, PMC officials claim these issues have now been sorted out, and there will be no reason for doctors to complain again. "We now have the lowest rates in the country for this service, at Rs 6 per day, according to what the doctors themselves had suggested," said Dr Sanjeev Wavare, Assistant Medical Officer, PMC. He added, "We are expecting more doctors to register, now that all the issues have been sorted out — failing to comply will lead to penal action on our part. We have seen doctors dispose of this highly sensitive waste like normal trash —- this cannot happen anymore." General Practioners' Association president Dr Sunil Paigude hailed the move, but pointed out, "While issues have been ironed out, a final meeting is yet to take place. The civic body has agreed to a rate of Rs 2,100 per year. Doctors will drop off their medical waste at either a PMC-run hospital or ward offices, from where it will be collected. Only, it should not remain on paper — PMC should also disclose how much waste they have collected." However, Dr Dilip Sarda, state president of the Indian Medical Association (IMA), remained dissatisfied with the civic body's solution. He explained, "They should have involved us as stakeholders too in this process, and had more discussions across the table. We all totally support that biomedical waste should be disposed of properly — but it is the generators of this waste that need to take responsibility. For example, my practice as a paediatrician generates negligible medical waste. In this case, Rs 2,100 per year is not justifiable. In Ulhasnagar, the collection of fees is in ratio to the waste collected. They should adopt a similar system here." So far, 2,400 clinics, 280 pathology labs and 176 blood banks are registered with PMC, which generates around 2.5 metric tonnes of biomedical waste per year. Post the newest notification, around 5,500 more doctors are expected to register.

Mumbai family struggles as HIV+ bar girl languishes in remand home By Shirish Vaktania |Posted 2 hours ago The 25-year-old woman, who was picked up by police in a bar raid in May, was the sole breadwinner of her family, as an accident forced her HIV+ husband to stop working a year ago A raid conducted by the Social Service Branch and Mira Road police at a bar two months ago has robbed an entire family of its livelihood, forcing a four-year-old child out of school. Orchid Bar in Mira Road (East) For the past two months, a 25-year-old bar dancer, who was picked up by the police during a raid in Orchid Bar in Mira Road (East), has been languishing in a remand home in Ulhasnagar. The woman, an AIDS patient, was the sole breadwinner in her family. She would work in the bar to make ends meet. Her husband, who also has AIDS and was injured in an accident last year, has been at home since last August, with no livelihood. The couple’s son has also been removed from school, as the family can no longer afford to pay his fees. A total of seven bar dancers were arrested in the raid in May. Police said that the court has not released the woman and the six other bar dancers who were picked up from the remand home, as the documents that were submitted as address and age proof were found to be invalid. The ailing husband told mid-day: “I met with an accident in August last year. My left leg is still broken. The doctor asked me to undergo an operation, which would cost me in lakhs at a private hospital and thousands in a general hospital. I cannot afford to undergo the surgery. Ever since the accident, I have been staying at home, and have not been able to do any work anywhere. My son and I are dependent on my wife, but she has been in a remand home for the past two months.” Manish and Reshma fell in love and married in 2008. During a check-up in 2010, Reshma learnt that she had AIDS. The doctor advised Reshma’s family to undergo tests as well, and her husband was also diagnosed with AIDS. Their son, however, is not infected. Both started undergoing medical treatment, and the condition is under control at present. Manish lives in a rented flat with his four-year-old son. He already owes Rs 6,000 to his landlord and is planning to move back to his parents’ home in Mulund. Manish added, “I need a wheelchair, so that I can start working and earn money for my son and my operation. The wheelchair costs Rs 3,500, which I cannot afford. I have been trying to secure my wife’s release from the remand room for the past two months, but have failed. A family needs a wife and a mother. I request the police and the court to save our family.” Senior Inspector Dhanaji Shirsagar of Mira Road police station said, “When we came to know that she is an AIDS patient and her family is fully dependent on her, even we tried to secure her release, but the decision lies in the hands of the court. Other women who were rescued from the raid have also been in the remand home for the past two months. This bar girls don’t have valid age proof or residence proof documents.” The manager of Orchid Bar said, “We are trying to get the girls released from the remand home for the past two months, and are ready to pay the release amount to the court, but all the girls don’t have valid age proof or residence proof documents. We are trying to get hold of the required papers with the help of their families.”

As Adivashi narrated in the last column, one would have expected that the state’s newest toll naka at Kharghar-Kamothe will be scrapped as suggested by the Deputy Chief Minister. Pawar suggested to MMRDA and CIDCO to cough up Rs 1,200 crore to buy back the toll contract and compensate the contractor consortium which secured the toll business. But the CM, instead, referred the vexed issue to a committee headed by the Chief Secretary amid agitation from the DF alliance partners as well as the opposition. Congress MLA Prashat Thakur, in fact, went for the meeting with the CM on Saturday with his resignation in his pocket. Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik too attended the special meeting. The committee will look into the demands such as exempting residents of Panvel taluka  from the toll tax. This is not liked by other Navi Mumbai people since they will be forced to pay the tax for travelling from other nodes to Panvel. Kharghar-Kamote toll plaza also is in contradiction of the new policy that stipulates that there should be no such tax booths within 45 km of each other and that the motorists with 5 km radius have to be exempted. The existing Vashi and Airoli toll plazas are within 15km to 20 km from the Kharghar booth. The CS committee, hopefully, will consider all the aspects. The definition of poor and economically weaker sections is in limelight again with the CIDCO coming up with a housing scheme for this class. The EWS houses, pegged at Rs 16 lakhs each, are meant for those with a maximum monthly income of Rs 16,000. This category will not be eligible for housing loans to pay up for flats costing Rs 16 lakhs. These are supposedly means for people like sweepers and maid servants. These flats may not find many takers. Even the LIG flats are priced at Rs 34 lakhs each for people within the income bracket of Rs 16,000 to Rs 40,000. Will a salaried person with less than Rs 40,000 a month be eligible for a Rs 30-lakh loan and be able to repay Rs 30,000 EMI and expected to make a living? The only advantage is that CIDCO is selling these houses by carpet area, unlike some developers who still sell by built up area. In all 3,292 homes, including 702 EWS category tenements, will be built at sector 36 of Kharghar. CIDCO aims to complete construction within two years. Monsoon has set in, though belatedly, and brought its annual misery of potholes and flooding of roads. A quick ride through MIDC and Belapur-Kharghar roads showed many potholes. Funnily though, one could see NMMC contractor workers filling potholes at Vashi’s sector 15 during Friday’s downpour. Mind you, these are the roads which have just been repaired as part of the pre-monsoon checks. Meanwhile, the traffic police department plans to ban heavy vehicles on Palm Beach road to facilitate smooth traffic and curtain accidents. Erratic dumpers and other vehicles have become a big nuisance on the road. The railway budget has brought some cheer to the upcoming areas like Ulwe and Dronagiri as the Minister announced Rs 39 crore allocation for Belapur-Seawoods-Uran stretch under construction now. In 2011, City and Industrial Development Corporation (Cidco) began work on the railway line project connecting Nerul and Belapur to Uran via Seawood. The total length of the corridor is 27 Km and consist of 10 stations, 4 major bridges. The project was expected to be complete in four years at the cost Rs 1,412.17 cr. The project got delayed due to lack of funding and other reasons. Now Belapur – Seawood Uran railway project expected to be functional by 2016 with CIDCO, which is sharing the cost, announcing that it would speed up the work. While on rail connectivity, CIDCO plans to cover its metro  network up to Kalyan and Ulhasnagar on the north and to the new airport township on the south. CIDCO is currently building the Belapur-Pendhar metro rail project. The much-delayed CIDCO exhibition centre at Vashi along the Sion-Panvel Highway is slated to be inaugurated on July 22, the birthday of Deputy CM Ajit Pawar! Along with the rest of the new infrastructure, this centre will be another feather in the ruling NCP’s cap. As the junior Pawar turns 55, one can expect him to make some major announcements with an eye on the assembly elections, three months away. The fully air-conditioned massive facility has two exhibition halls of 5,000 sq ft each, which can be divided for smaller events, apart from food courts, a 750-seat auditorium and most importantly parking for 450 cars. NMMC’s campaign – Save-The-Girl-Child – seems to have paid off. City’s municipal corporation administered area registered a girl child ratio of 930 per 1,000 boys making it the  second highest among the State’s municipal areas. Ratnagari has the highest 1,123 girls per thousand boys while Mumbai has the least with 830 girls. —–   This is the 81st in a series on Navi Mumbai by veteran media professional B N Kumar, a long-time resident of Mumbai’s twin city.

2014-07-15Victims of police high-handedness - Free Press Jou
Victims of police high-handedness Victims of police high-handedness — By FPJ Bureau,  July 15, 2014 12:07 am 2 young law students abused and arrested by Dombivli GRP; both say they have been falsely accused in the case of pick-pocketing Mumbai : Two law students from Goregaon, Chitra Kuwar, 22, and Raveena Nair (name changed), 25, were arrested and abused by the GRP police station on June 29, 2014 in a case of pick-pocketing at the Dombivli railway station. However, the girls say, that they have been falsely charged in the case. The two were on their way to a birthday party and were travelling in the second class ladies compartment of an Asangaon train on a Sunday afternoon. Since they wanted to go to Ulhasnagar, they got down at Dombivli in order to change trains. “When we were getting down at the station, someone caught hold of my neck from behind and pushed me downwards and told me to pick up a wallet lying on the platform,” Nair said. Nair spun around and confronted the person. “The woman told me that she is a constable from the Dombivli GRP and said that I had stolen the wallet from a fellow traveller,” Nair said. Chitra, who had got down first and was a couple of steps ahead, was brought back by another constable in plainclothes. “They banged both our heads against each other and started arguing with us. I asked them to take us to the police station and do whatever they had to do there,” Nair said. One of the constables then brought the ‘victim’ of pick-pocketing to the girls and told her that they had stolen her wallet. The victim, Shaileja Deshpande, 54, wasn’t even aware that her wallet had been stolen. In all, three women constables and one male constable in plainclothes took the girls and Deshpande to the police station. There the girls were forced to accept that they had stolen the wallet. “We were beaten up by both the male and female constables, kept in the lock-up. They didn’t let us contact our friends or family. They made Shaileja Deshpande file an FIR. When we pleaded with her that we hadn’t done anything she said that the police approached me,” Kuwar said. “They even beat me more because I couldn’t speak in Marathi,” Nair added. Nair, whose bag was lying near her at one point of time at the police station managed to inform her friends through SMSes and asked them to come. Their five friends came to the Dombivli GRP in the evening where they were allowed only to give them food and water. “We weren’t allowed to meet them. The police were the only ones talking to us. After giving them some refreshments, we went to their parents’ place to inform them about the incident,” Ghanshyam Patil, a friend of the girls’ said, “They are not criminals. I have known them for four to five years now and I can guarantee that they didn’t do this.” In the evening, the girl were taken to Kalyan railway police station and kept in custody there until the next day. Their parents arrived at the police station after 10 pm. On June 30, their lawyer Priti Chavan got a bail secured for them. They chose not to go for a medical test as that would have required them to stay in custody for two more days.

The transaction took place at an ICICI Bank ATM centre in Vashi on July 5. Chawla complained to the bank and also filed a complaint with the Vashi police. He was informed that he will get his money back only after the bank completes its investigation on the transaction. "I swiped my card at one of the five machines, which appeared to be working in the kiosk. I realized that the password was not registering properly and the screen had gone blank. I cancelled the transaction, swiped my card at another machine and withdrew Rs 2,500," said Chawla. Soon, he got two smses for two transactions, one being a debit of Rs 20,000, which was never carried out. Chawla contacted the customer care section of the bank, filed a complaint to block his ATM card and also lodged a complaint with the local police. He then followed it up with the branch manager, who told him that they will investigate the matter. "A day later, the manager told me it was a case of fraud and not a technical fault. The manager also said that the bank investigation is on but is yet to get back," Chawla said. Cyber experts claim tricksters have resorted to stuck-key fraud (see box). "I came across such cases, including four to five in the same branch," alleged Chawla. ICICI Vashi branch manager, Rajesh P admitted that Chawla had filed a complaint. "The matter is being investigated by a team and we have informed our central ATM team. The customer's complaint will be resolved but we need time to look into it," he said. When asked about similar complaints being registered with the branch, he added that those were of a different nature.

The transaction took place after the Ulhasnagar resident swiped his ATM card at an ICICI Bank ATM centre at their mega branch in Vashi on July 5. Thereafter Chawla has been pursuing the bank to get his money back. The bank insists that an inquiry is on and that he would get his money back only after it is over. Officials at the bank initially refused to accept that the fault was at their end, claims Chawla. "I entered the ATM centre and found there were five machines, of which two were non-functional. I swiped my card on one machine which appeared functional and typed my password. I then realised that the symbols for the password were not appearing on the screen and it had gone blank. I cancelled the transaction and swiped my card on another machine in the same kiosk and withdrew Rs 2,500," said Chawla. Shortly, he got two messages of two transactions, one of which was a debit of Rs 20,000, which he never carried out. Chawla immediately contacted the bank and registered a complaint and the card was blocked. He also filed an FIR."A day later, the manager told me it was a case of fraud," Chawla said. Cyber experts claim that in certain cases, tricksters have adopted the stuck key fraud to scam ATM users and one should ensure that no one else is present in the ATM kiosk. "At least four or five similar incidents have taken place in the same branch," alleged Chawla. ICICI Vashi branch manager, Rajesh P admitted that Chawla had complained. "The matter is being investigated by a team of the bank and we have also informed our central ATM team. The customer's complaint will be resolved, but we require some time," said Rajesh. When asked about complaints of similar incidents being registered with the branch, Rajesh P said those were of a different nature.

2014-07-133 Mantralaya men held for bribery - The Asian Age
3 Mantralaya men held for bribery Jul 13, 2014 | : Age Correspondent | mumbai Share Accused Kishore Shinde A clerk working in Maharashtra deputy chief minister’s office and his two aides have been trapped by the state anti-corruption bureau (ACB) while demanding and accepting a bribe for helping the complainant, a rationing shop owner, to “absolve” him of a complaint received against him in the Mantralaya. According to officials of the Thane ACB unit that laid the trap, the accused has been identified as Kishore Shinde (42) an inward-outward clerk (a class III worker) working in deputy CM Ajit Pawar’s office. Shinde’s aides Vinod Akhade (33), a resident of Badlapur and Sunil Bansode (22), a resident of Ulhasnagar, have also been trapped. Both of them worked as agents of Shinde, bringing him people who were ready to pay bribe to get “absolved” of complaints received against them in Mantralaya. The complainant was one of the few persons who own a rationing shop and a complaint was received against them for an illegality. Shinde, through his agents, demanded a bribe of Rs 40,000. The complainant approached the ACB after which his complaint was verified. The complainant then negotiated with the accused and brought down the amount to Rs 30,000. Accordingly, a time was fixed and a trap was laid at 9.10 pm at Deepak Hotel, Kalyan (west). Shinde and his aide Bansode were nabbed from there after they took the bribe. Their aide Akhade was nabbed from Balaji Lodge at Shahad, Thane. In another case, the Thane ACB range’s Dombivali unit nabbed a police head constable and his aide for favouring an accused and not arresting him. The accused, 50-year-old Ganesh Marathe, is a head constable at Manpada police station and his aide has been identified as Lakhanlalji Diwakar (50). The duo demanded Rs 2,500 and was arrested on Saturday while accepting a bribe of Rs 2,000 from the complainant.

On how he could give them a clean chit without a probe, Devraj said it would be completed in 48 hours. Chitra Kuwar and her friend Radha (names changed), both in their 20s, were travelling to Ulhasnagar to celebrate a friend's birthday on June 29. They had taken an Asangaon local from Dadar, and as it takes the Kasara route, they alighted at Dombivli to take another train to Ulhasnagar. When they alighted, three women who were with them in the train followed them. One of the women allegedly told the girls to pick up a purse on platform 2. When she refused, the woman allegedly held her by the neck and forced her to pick it up. The woman then took both and filed case of theft against them. The students alleged that at the police station, a female and male constable tortured them to force out a confession. Sources said CCTV cameras at Dombivli railway station, which could be key to the investigations, have a 10-day recording capacity. The girls complained to the GRP commissioner on July 7. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/followceleb.cms?alias=GRP

Malad resident Abhijit Kadam (25) had suffered head injuries after a rock fell from the top soon after the group started its descent in the afternoon. Heavy rain made his medical evacuation difficult. He died late on Saturday, the police said. A doctor, who had climbed up the hill in response to calls for medical help from Kadam's teammates, administered treatment, but Kadam could not be saved. The doctor returned to the base of the hill late at night. Kadam's body was sent to Central Hospital, Ulhasnagar, for a post-mortem examination. The trekkers were part of a group of 48, who had leftfor the hill on Saturday morning. Forty of them climbed down to safety in the evening. The rescue team, formed of the local Kulgaon police and the fire brigade, went to the spot, but rain and fog hampered their progress. The team achieved breakthrough around 4am on Sunday. Kadam's body was brought down with great difficulty as the path was narrow and slippery, said Badlapur tehsildar Amit Sanap.

The students, pursuing MCom and LLB, have now approached the GRP commissioner who has ordered an inquiry. On June 29, the students, Chitra Kuwar and her friend Radha (name changed)—both in 20s—were travelling to Ulhasnagar to celebrate a friend's birthday. They had taken an Asangaon local from Dadar. As the Asangaon train takes the Kasara route, they got off at Dombivli to take another train to Ulhasnagar. Both claimed to be NCC cadets. Chitra said, "When we alighted, three women who were with us in the train followed us. Suddenly, one of them asked my friend Radha to pick up a purse lying on the floor at platform number 2. When she refused to pick it up, the lady forcefully held her by the neck and forced her to pick it up. The woman then accused her of theft." The three women then took them to the Dombivli GRP office. That's when the girls realized that the three women were cops. "On the way, they kept hitting us. We didn't realize they were cops as they were not in uniform," Chitra said. "We requested them to allow us to speak to our parents but they refused. They did not inform our parents. At the police station, they beat us with belts, wanting us to accept the theft charge," said Radha. When the women constables failed to extract confessions, male constables interrogated us separately in different rooms. "They wanted each of us to implicate the other in the theft," she said. When the students refused, the GRP registered an FIR naming them. "They even threatened to sever my friend's head and dump her on the tracks and record it as an accidental death," Chitra said. The duo was sent to Kalyan jail, where they spent the night. They got bail the next day. A friend whom they had texted informed their parents. Both have now approached the Thane GRP commissioner as well as State Women's Commission. ACP Rajeshwari Redekar of Kalyan region GRP will probe their complaint. Mahesh Bagwe, senior inspector of Dombivli GRP, said the girls' allegations are baseless. "They were caught red-handed stealing the purse of the complainant, a teacher by profession." http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/followceleb.cms?alias=Tortured,students,jail,GRP,Asangaon
2014-07-12Two girls beaten, abused, illegally held by women
Two girls beaten, abused, illegally held by women cops Jul 13, 2014 - PARTH SATAM | mumbai Share Two young women, accused of pick pocketing, were illegally arrested, beaten, verbally and physically abused and locked up for a full night by policewomen of the Dombivali railway police, even as the girls pleaded innocence. They claimed they weren’t even allowed to contact their families in the incident that took place on June 29. Worse, policemen present also “displayed” the girls to their male colleagues asking them which one they would like to have. Senior police officers have initiated an inquiry with a complaint also being filed with the women’s commission. The two girls, college students residing in Goregaon, were on their way to Ulhasnagar when plain-clothed policewomen accused them of stealing a cellphone and wallet. Speaking to The Asian Age, Chitra Kuwar (22) said she, along with her friend Devika (name changed), had caught a 1.08 pm Asangaon local from Dadar and alighted at Dombivali at around 2.30 pm to catch a train on the same platform. “We got down on the platform to find a wallet lying on the ground when three plain-clothed women constables, who were in the same bogie, too alighted and said we had nicked the purse. We denied the charge and an argument ensued. We said that the victim who claimed the valuables was seen getting down from another compartment so we could not have stolen her wallet,” said Kuwar. They also asked for the CCTV footage at the railway stations to be examined, which enraged the latter and the two were beaten and dragged to the Dombivali GRP station. “The policewomen pulled our hair, banged our heads against each other apart from taking us separately to the toilet and offering release in return for testifying against each other. The policemen then intermittently began hitting us with their belts,” said Kuwar. The girls were taken to Kalyan GRP where the policemen preparing the case papers, mentioned the cellphone and purse to be found on the girls’ person. “One woman constable told us they are hard-pressed to catch criminals and have to justify their salary,” she added. After an FIR was registered, they were taken back to Dombivali where Devika stealthily managed to SMS her Ulhasnagar friend. “Our parents had been clueless until then. Our friends managed to turn up within a few minutes, but were disallowed to meet us. They then went to our homes while we were taken back to the lock up at Kalyan at around 9 pm. There, one policeman asked the other which one of us would he like to have for the night. Our parents reached the Kalyan GRP by 1 am when they were momentarily allowed to see us,” Kuwar added. The next day, the girls were produced in the Kalyan magistrate court where they opted for a spot bail instead of a medical test, as it would have entailed further custody. “I have received a written complaint from one of the girls and am conducting an inquiry. The policemen are accused of severe physical thrashing and illegal arrest and the inquiry will establish the truth,” said ACP Rajeshwari Redkar. DCP Rupali Ambhure and Dombivali GRP senior PI Ramesh Bagwe were unavailable for comment. Police commissioner (railways) Prabhat Kumar refused to comment.

2014-07-11Budget 2014: Focus now on 'smart cities', satellit
Budget 2014: Focus now on ‘smart cities’, satellite towns Internal roads, street-lighting, water supply and sewage networks in Mumbai’s satellite towns like Kalyan-Dombivli, Bhiwandi-Ulhasnagar, Mira-Bhayander, Panvel, Ambernath, Kulgaon-Badlapur and Nallasopara may get better soon. Officials expect a reasonable slice of the Rs 7,060 crore earmarked for satellite towns will benefit these areas and convert them into smart cities for Navi Mumbai, Alibaug, Vasai-Virar, Thane and surrounding townships. “The infrastructure connecting regional roads and bridges can be funded under this programme. Municipal corporations and councils in the Mumbai metropolitan region will benefit from this,” said sources. “The prime minister has a vision of developing ‘100 smart cities’ as satellite towns of larger cities and modernising the existing mid-sized cities. To provide the necessary focus to this critical activity, I have provided a sum of Rs 7,060 crore in the current fiscal,” finance minister Arun Jaitley said in his budget speech. “As the fruits of development reach a large number of people, the pace of migration from rural areas to cities is increasing. A neo-middle class is emerging which has the aspiration of better living standards. Unless new cities are developed to accommodate the burgeoning number of people, the existing cities would soon become unlivable,” he added. The budget announcement to provide facilities and support to encourage the manufacturing sector and planned special economic zones (SEZ) might help revive the Navi Mumbai and Mahamumbai SEZ in parts of Uran, Panvel and Alibaug. This might also boost the prospects of the Navi Mumbai international airport planned by Cidco.

2014-07-03SRA may spread its wings to Thane district - Mid-D
SRA may spread its wings to Thane district By Ravikiran Deshmukh |Posted 03-Jul-2014 The state government has appointed a study group to work on the possibility of forming Slum Rehabilitation Authorities in 15 civic bodies across the Mumbai Metropolitan Region The Slum rehabilitation authority (SRA), which, of late, has become a sought-after state enterprise by developers, local leaders and the administration, is set to spread its wings in the adjoining Thane district in a big way. The study group will look into the issues affecting slum dwellers in Thane district in detail, and submit a report to the government on whether an SRA body is required or not. File pic Giving in to constant demands by the elected representatives, the state government has decided to appoint a nine-member study group to work on creating SRA for as many as seven municipal corporations and eight municipal councils from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) that is spread between Mumbai city to Virar, Bhiwandi, Ambernath and Nhava Sheva. The principal secretary of the state housing department will be the coordinator of the study group, which comprises principal secretaries of the state forest and urban development departments, managing director of town planning body CIDCO, chief executive officer of MIDC, the municipal commissioner of Thane Municipal Corporation, and state director of town planning as its members. Currently there are four SRAs, one each for Mumbai, Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad and Nagpur. These bodies are limited to the areas under the respective civic authorities. The study group will now work on modalities for rehabilitation of slum dwellers living in MMR. After studying the issues of slum pockets in these regions, it will recommend whether an SRA for all the civic areas would be feasible or not. Besides this, the group will also recommend whether it would be appropriate to give special powers to those civic bodies or setting up a special planning authority for the region. The committee is expected to submit its report by the end of this month. Demand for SRAThe seven municipal corporations which want an SRA: Thane, Navi Mumbai, Kalyan-Dombivli, Bhiwandi-Nizampur, Vasai-Virar, Mira-Bhayander, Ulhasnagar. Apart from these, eight municipal councils have also asked for the body to be set up. These are: Panvel, Ambernath, Badlapur, Alibaug, Pen, Khopoli, Matheran, and Karjat.

First meeting for panel on illegal bldgs on July 11The author has posted comments on this articleTNN | Jul 3, 2014, 11.56PM ISTPage 1 of 4Mumbai: A committee set up to tackle illegal constructions in the city will hold its first meeting on July 11. The panel is supposed to recommend ways to handle the existing illegal constructions and to suggest measures to prevent new ones from coming up. Headed by BMC commissioner Sitaram Kunte, its other members include the civic chiefs of Thane, Pimpri-Chinchwad and Pune. The city is creaking under the burden of unauthorized constructions. While Thane has been given the cluster redevelopment route to tackle both old and dilapidated buildings as well as illegal structures, in Ulhasnagar, regularization did not take off. Officials said it was now to be seen how the panel tackled the irregularities and if the state accepted its recommendations to solve the problems.Article continuesReader's opinionsRead All CommentsTHE TIMES OF INDIAPowered by INDIATIMESAbout usAdvertise with usTerms of Use and Grievance Redressal PolicyPrivacy policyFeedbackRSSNewsletterTOI MobileePaperSitemapArchivesOther Times Group news sitesTimes Crest | The Economic Timesइकनॉमिक टाइम्स | ઈકોનોમિક ટાઈમ્સMumbai Mirror | Times NowIndiatimes | नवभारत टाइम्समहाराष्ट्र टाइम्स | ವಿಜಯ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕGo GreenLiving and entertainmentTimescity | iDiva | Bollywood | ZoomHealthmeup | Luxpresso | TechnoholikGuylifeInterest Networkitimes | EmailHot on the WebHotklixServicesBook print ads | Online shopping | Business solutions | Book domains | Web hostingBusiness email | Free SMS | Free email | Website design | CRM | Tenders | RemitCheap air tickets | Matrimonial | Ringtones | Astrology | Jobs | Property | Buy carBikes in India | Deals | Free ClassifiedsCopyright © 2014 Bennett, Coleman & Co.

2014-07-026-year-old dies after eating tiffin at Ulhasnagar
6-year-old dies after eating tiffin at Ulhasnagar school IIT admission: 750 who cracked JEE (Advance) opt out Western India faces drought-like situation: Government Home » Mumbai 6-year-old dies after eating tiffin at Ulhasnagar school Wednesday, 2 July 2014 - 7:30am IST | Agency: DNA Arvind Walmiki Tweet A six-year-old boy mysteriously died after eating from his tiffin box at Century Rayon school, Ulhasnagar, on Tuesday morning, leaving his parents and the school authorities grappling to determine what had happened. Arjunsingh Mohansingh Jina, left from his home, which is quite close to his school, at around 7.30 am. During recess at 10.30 am, he was eating from his tiffin box, which he allegedly got from his home, when he suddenly fell to the ground. A watchman on duty saw the boy lying on the floor and informed his class teacher Prema, who rushed to the spot, picked up the boy and took him to the hall. Arjunsingh then opened his eyes and told her that he had just had his tiffin, and that he felt like vomiting. After being administered some medicine, he vomited, after which the teacher and some members of the school staff took him to a nearby hospital. On the way, they informed Arjunsingh's parents who then rushed to the hospital. However, during treatment, the doctor on duty declared him dead. An officer from Ulhasnagar police station said, "The post-mortem reports are awaited. We have registered a case of accidental death as of now, and are investigating further to ascertain the exact cause of death." Sources said they suspected a case of food poisoning. After the news of their son's death, Arjunsingh's parents met school principal Kailashpati Pal and asked her the reason. When she was unable to give a satisfactory answer, they allegedly broke a few objects in her office. The principal immediately alerted the police. Arjunsingh's mother said, "My son died because of the school's negligence. Going by the amount it charges, it is the school's duty inform the parents if anything happens to the children. Though he was taken to the hospital, we were informed late." Principal Pal said, "The boy had bought the tiffin box from home and he had not been well for the past few days. We haven't done anything that can be termed as negligence." UlhasnagarCentury Rayon schooldeath case

Centre: His devastated mother, MayaRELATEDRelatives of Arjun Singh Jena, 5, allege that Shahad schoolteachers failed to tend to him and simply asked him to lie down on the last bench. A senior KG student died mysteriously in his class after vomiting during the lunch break on Tuesday morning. Five-year-old Arjun Singh Jena, who studied in Cenray Toddlers' Academy in Shahad near Kalyan, threw up after having home-cooked food and was asked by his teacher to lie down on the last bench. When his mother, Maya, came to take him home, he was unresponsive. Arjun was rushed to a hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead. The boy's relatives have accused the school of negligence, saying they failed to alert his parents about his poor health or call a doctor. They believe Arjun choked on his own vomit after the school staff failed to tend to him. The school, however, denied the charges. It has filed a police complaint against the relatives after they allegedly assaulted the principal, P N Pal, and damaged school property. The Ulhasnagar police, under who jurisdiction the school falls, refused to comment on the cause of death, saying they would wait for the post-mortem report. Cenray Toddlers' Academy reopened after the summer break on Tuesday. Maya said that Arjun and her elder second son, Karan, were very excited to return to school and meet their friends. Karan is a Std III student. "I dropped them off at 7.30 am and gave them their lunch boxes containing roti sabzi. Arjun seemed absolutely fine then," she said. Around 8 am, during the recess, Arjun had his lunch and within minutes, he vomited. His class teacher asked him to lie down on the last bench FOR some time. While the school claims that his parents were promptly alerted, Maya said that she received no such call and went there to pick up her sons at 10.30 am when the last pre-primary class ends. "When I reached there, Arjun's class teacher, Prema, told me that he was sleeping on the last bench as he was not feeling well. I went to wake him up, but he did not respond. We immediately took him to a hospital then," said Maya, whose husband works as a cook in a hotel in Raigad. Arjun was admitted to the nearby Century Hospital, where he was declared brought dead. His body was taken to Rukminibai Municipal Hospital in Kalyan for a post-mortem. The family, in the meantime, filed a complaint of negligence against the school. "The school had my and my husband's phone numbers. They could have at least informed us that our son was not feeling well. Instead, the teacher simply asked him to lie down. They didn't even clean him up after he vomited," Maya said. "The school is responsible for our son's death." Inspector Ghanshyam Palange of the Ulhasnagar police station said that a case of accidental death had been registered for now. "We will take further action after seeing the post-mortem report," he said. Brig (retd) VPPS Gusain, senior general manager of the school's administration, provided a different account of the events leading up to Arjun's death. He said that after Arjun threw up, his parents were contacted. "The child's mother and relatives promptly came to the school and rushed the child to Century Hospital, where the he was administered treatment. Regrettably, the child did not recover and passed away in 20 minutes. The cause of death would be known only after the post-mortem," Gusain said. He added that a mob gathered at the school and ransacked its property. The management had filed a police complaint for the same, and would not conduct classes on Wednesday to protest the vandalism.

Kid dies after eating tiffin, parents say school aid lateThe author has posted comments on this articleNishikant Karlikar, TNN | Jul 1, 2014, 11.28PM ISTPage 1 of 4THANE: A six-year-old boy from the kindergarten section of Century School, Shahad, died on Tuesday, triggering violent reaction from his parents, relatives and locals who blamed school authorities for delay in providing medical help. Arjun Singh Jinnah is said to have vomited during school recess, around 9.30am, after eating from the tiffin packed by his mother. The child, who lived in Kamla Nehru Nagar area, Dhobi Ghat in Ulhasnagar Camp 1, was rushed to Century Rayon Hospital in the vicinity by his parents and relatives, but pronounced dead on arrival. "His class teacher, Prema, took charge of Arjun after he began to throw up in the classroom. With the help of other staffers, she made him lie on the bench and immediately informed the principal who, in turn, called his father. The boy was attended to in the school and after his parents arrived, rushed to Century Rayon Hospital where he was declared dead on arrival," said K D Jadhav, senior police inspector, Ulhasnagar police station. While mystery surrounds his death, the police are also inquiring if the boy had a medical history. The school management said it would be incorrect to point an accusing finger at them. "We did inform the boy's father immediately after he vomited. He said he was in Raigad, but his relatives and his mother came around 10.15am and rushed him to the hospital. We did whatever we could by summoning his parents but, unfortunately, the boy passed away in the hospital," a school spokesperson told TOI. Police have registered an accidental death report. "The body has been sent for post-mortem. An informal conversation with doctors indicated death could be due to an undetected illness; they suspect symptoms of bronchopneumonia. We have taken his blood samples and will send them to National institute of Virology, Pune," said Jadhav. Other parents and locals met high school principal Kailash Pal. The mob vandalized the office.
