Though his vitals are stable and he is conscious, the liquid accumulated inside his brain was removed on Wednesday and sent for testing. After studying the reports of the tests, the neurosurgeon will decide whether or not Tiger should undergo surgery. Hours-old Tiger was found by a couple from Ulhasnagar on December 30 last year in a nullah in Ambernath stuffed inside a polythene bag. Social activists Shivaji Ragade and his wife, Jayashree, took the newborn to Central Hospital, Ulhasnagar, first and to a private hospital Sai Ashish where he was treated for infection. But, last week after he was found to have an infection in his brain, he was rushed to Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital, Parel. After treatment at Wadia Hospital, Baby Tiger is in stable condition. According to doctors, he is on oral feed from the hospital's milk bank and his antibiotics dosage will continue until today. A CT scan conducted on the infant on Tuesday showed moderate hydrocephalus with ventriculitis, which is accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid inside the skull.

Shivaji Ragade who was at the hospital on Wednesday, said, "We are relieved that advanced treatment has started on Tiger." The Ambernath Police are still looking for the people who abandoned him.

2019-01-30Mumbai Newborn baby survives after being dumped in nullah hours after birth needs surgery - Mid-Day
Mumbai: Newborn baby survives after being dumped in nullah hours after birth; needs surgery Jan 30, 2019, 17:00 IST Nearly a month after they found a newborn in a nullah in Ambernath, covered with blood and freezing in the cold, Shivaji and Jayashree Ragade cried tears of joy when he finally opened his eyes for the first time last week. "Seeing the way he was fighting to live, we named him Tiger," said Jayashree. But, just as the miracle baby was starting to recover, his condition deteriorated two days ago. Now, doctors suspect he may have an infection in the brain, requiring urgent surgery. Tiger had been dumped in a ditch in Ambernath barely hours after his birth on December 30. Around 5 pm, Shalini Gaikwad, a local resident of Wadol village in Ambernath West, heard a baby wailing, and followed the cries until she spotted a black garbage bag inside a nullah. When she went closer, she spotted movement inside the bag. Worried, she called social activist Shivaji Ragade for help. Shivaji was nearby, attending a wedding with his wife, and hotfooted it to the nullah. "I jumped into the nullah and grabbed the baby. He had all blood all over him, and the umbilical cord was still attached to his navel. Without a second thought, my wife and I took the baby to Central Hospital in Ulhasnagar," said Shivaji. Miraculous recovery After being left in the ditch water for hours, the baby was battling for his life and was feared to have contracted an infection. After four days of treatment, when there wasn't much improvement, Shivaji and Jayashreee sought permission from the authorities to pay for his treatment at a private facility, and the baby was shifted to Sai Ashish hospital. After 22 days of treatment, it was there that Tiger finally opened his eyes for the very first time last week. "That was an emotional moment for us. When he opened his eyes and winked, tears rolled down from everyone's eyes who had been praying for his speedy recovery," recalled Shivaji. Inspired by his fighting spirit, the couple named the baby Tiger. And, as news spread about him, several couples offered to adopt him. In fact, as many as 12 couples approached the hospital seeking to adopt him in a single day. May need brain surgery But on January 26, Tiger's health began to deteriorate again, prompting his transfer to Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children in Parel. "We contacted many hospitals in Mumbai, but none of them had NICU beds vacant. Finally, Wadia hospital responded and asked us to bring the baby here as soon as possible. The doctors said he needs surgery urgently," said Shivaji. The Ambernath police brought the baby to Wadia hospital on Monday, when he underwent a CT scan (contrast). He is responding to treatment but remains in a critical condition. He may undergo surgery on Wednesday. Doctorspeak "The baby is under constant observation in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit [NICU]. We are administrating antibiotics intravenously. He underwent a CT scan and we are awaiting the results, after which the further course of treatment will be decided," said Mini Bodhanwala, CEO, Wadia hospital. Search for parents Meanwhile, the Ambernath police have formed teams to search for the parents who abandoned the baby. T K Sawant, sub-inspector from Ambernath police station, said, "We have taken statements from various residents. According to the panchnama, the baby was abandoned soon after birth. There was no CCTV camera where he was found." "We checked all private nursing homes to check if the baby was delivered there and are also enquiring with local doctors to find out more about the mother. We have registered a case under Section 317 (exposure and abandonment of child under 12 years, by parent) of the Indian Penal Code," he added.

2019-01-24Maharashtra: Key changes in Congress ranks - The Indian Express
Maharashtra: Key changes in Congress ranks Party’s 13 district heads replaced ahead of polls, jumbo poll committees announced to take everyone along. Published: January 25, 2019 4:10:16 am CONGRESS PRESIDENT Rahul Gandhi has made key changes in the party ranks in Maharashtra with an eye on the Lok Sabha elections. In a major rejig, Rahul has replaced presidents of 13 district party committees in the state. Advertising With sources confirming that the rejig proposal had been recommended by state Congress president Ashok Chavan, the move is being seen in the party circles as egging Chavan’s leadership in the state, ahead of the polls.

On similar lines, the district heads of Nashik, Jalgaon (north Maharashtra), Wardha, Chandrapur (Vidarbha), Jalna, Osmanabad (Marathwada), Kolhapur (rural), and Satara (western Maharashtra) have been replaced. Former state minister Prakash Awade has been appointed as the district president of Kolhapur (rural), ending a 19-year tenure for former legislator and heavyweight P N Patil. Meanwhile, through various poll committees — on manifesto, coordination, election and campaign — announced on Wednesday, the Congress high command has sent a message that it wants to “take everyone along”, as it bids to upset the BJP in Maharashtra. A senior leader said that the party leadership has ensured that all rival camps are adequately represented in these committees. Also, all senior leaders have been assigned responsibilities. While All India Congress Committee’s Maharashtra in charge, Mallikarjun Kharge, will head the party’s coordination committee in the state, Chavan will lead the election committee. Former CMs Prithviraj Chavan and Sushil Kumar Shinde have been made in charges of the manifesto and campaign committees, respectively. Former MP Priya Dutt, who had earlier announced her decision not to contest the upcoming poll, has found place in the state-level campaign committee.
2019-01-24Manikarnika row: Bombay High Court refuses to stay film release - India Today
Manikarnika row: Bombay High Court refuses to stay film release Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi will hit the screens on January 25, as Bombay High Court refused to put a stay on the release of the film after a petitioner moved the court. January 24, 2019 UPDATED: January 24, 2019 18:45 IST Bombay High Court, today, refused to put a stay on release of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The Kangana Ranaut film, based on the life of Rani Laxmibai, is set to be released on Friday. Petitioner Vivek Tambe, a resident of Badlapur claims to be the fifth descendent of Rani Laxmibai. He told the court that there are many factual errors in the film, and cited the same reason to approach the court. Tambe claimed that the film shows the year of birth of Rani Laxmibai as 1828 whereas she was born in 1835. "Rani Laxmibai was born in Varanasi and died in Gwalior. There are many places associated with her that have placards declaring the year of her birth as well as death. However, the makers have still got her year of birth wrong," says Tambe. Tambe added he and many women, who congregate to celebrate Rani Laxmibai, were hurt by such factual distortions. "Several accounts say that Rani Laxmibai was married at the age of seven. But in the film, it is shown that she was married at the age of 14. This is done only because 30-year-old Kangana Ranaut can be made to look 14 but not 7," alleged Tambe, expressing that some facts should not be played around with. Tambe said that he had approached the local police to register an FIR for this "fraud". But since the police did not register a complaint, he went on to file a complaint with the Ulhasnagar magistrate court. However, the local court does not hold any authority to put a stay on a film release, thus he approached the Bombay High Court. Central Board of Film Certification lawyer Advait Sethna told the court that the board had recommended a disclaimer be put at the beginning of the film which stated in English and Hindi that the film is based on the life of Rani Laxmibai. But certain "cinematic liberties have been sought and certain moments have been dramatised." The filmmakers were asked to put up names of historians SP Pathak and Ramakant Verma who were in charge of cross-checking the history. "The film does not claim historical authenticity at any point," said Sethna. He added that if the petitioner had approached the board, then they would have looked into the issue. The advocate representing the Manikarnika team told the court that the petitioner had been corresponding with them since 2017 on these issues, but records such as school textbooks show that she was born in 1828. "We are not challenging that Tambe is a descendent [of Rani Laxmibai], but on the basis of one placard somewhere, he cannot come and ask for injunction at the last minute. Also, the film has been released internationally (For eg: In Dubai). In India, the premiere is on Thursday. The negatives are out for the film to be released." Hearing all these arguments, the Bombay High Court asked the filmmakers to file a detailed reply to all the allegations of the petitioners within two weeks but refused to stay the release of the film. Manikarnika, also starring Ankita Lokhande, is set to hit the screens on January 25.

2019-01-23Plagiarism Case Against Principal: No Action 10 Months After Varsity Probe; College Says It Is Yet To Receive Report - Swarajya
Plagiarism Case Against Principal: No Action 10 Months After Varsity Probe; College Says It Is Yet To Receive Report Jan 23 2019, 2:13 pm, Little progress has been made in a case relating to alleged plagiarism by the principal of a Maharashtra college. Ulhasnagar’s Chandibai Himatlal Mansukhani College management has reportedly said that it is yet to receive a copy of the report, 10 months after a committee set up by Mumbai University claimed that 20 per cent of the text in a book written by the principal, Manju Lalwani Pathak, resembled a book authored by an American. The Citizen Forum For Sanctity in Education System, an organisation run by Thane BJP MLA Sanjay Kelkar, had complained to the university that the principal's book titled Retail Management (New Perspective), published by Universal Publishing House in 2015, was a plagiarised version of Rosemary Varley’s Retail Product Management. Chancellor Vidyasagar Rao, following this, had set up a three-member committee to probe the matter. The committee comprised former K J Somaiya Science and Commerce College principal Dr Vijay Joshi, former CKT College principal Dr S T Gadade and faculty Smita Shukla of Alkesh Dinesh Mody Institute for Financial and Management Studies. The committee found that 80 per cent of the text of Pathak’s book was plagiarised from Varley’s book. Pathak, when summoned by the committee on 29 January 2018, had claimed that the published book was not what she had sent to the publisher for publishing. She had also submitted another book to the university, which she claimed was the original manuscript. This, also published by the Universal Publishing House, had the same ISBN (International Standard Book Number) as that of the first version of the book. However, Indian Express reported that this book, too, was found to have 15 per cent to 20 per cent plagiarised content, but, however, acknowledged Varley’s contribution.

Plagiarism case against principal: No action 10 months after MU probe; college says yet to receive copy of report Updated: January 23, 2019 11:32:55 am Ten months after a committee set up by the University of Mumbai (MU) submitted a report claiming that 15 per cent to 20 per cent of the text in a book written by the principal of Ulhasnagar’s Chandibai Himatlal Mansukhani College resembles a book authored by an American, the college management has said it was yet to receive a copy of the report, and hence, has not taken any action against the principal. Manju Lalwani Pathak is the principal of the college managed by Hyderabad (Sind) National Collegiate Board, which also governs Kishinchand Chellaram College and Hassaram Rijhumal College of Commerce & Economics College, among others. On September 6, 2017, Citizen Forum For Sanctity in Education System — an organisation run by Thane BJP MLA Sanjay Kelkar — had complained to MU that Pathak’s book, Retail Management (New Perspective), published by Universal Publishing House in 2015, was a plagiarised version of author Rosemary Varley’s Retail Product Management. The book was published in 2001 by Routledge. Rosemary is at present a faculty at the London College of Fashion. Following this, based on the instructions of Chancellor Ch Vidyasagar Rao, the MU had set up a three-member committee to probe the matter. It comprised former K J Somaiya Science and Commerce College principal Dr Vijay Joshi, former CKT College principal Dr S T Gadade and faculty Smita Shukla of Alkesh Dinesh Mody Institute for Financial and Management Studies. The committee found that 80 per cent text of Pathak’s book was plagiarised from Varley’s book. When summoned by the committee, Pathak, on January 29, 2018, claimed that the published book was not what she had sent to the publisher for publishing. She submitted another book to the MU, which she claimed was the original manuscript. This, also published by the Universal Publishing House, had the same ISBN (International Standard Book Number) as that of the first version of the book. However, this book, too, was found to have 15 per cent to 20 per cent plagiarised content, albeit it acknowledged Varley’s contribution. On October 26, 2018, MU got an FIR registered against the publisher.

A rather challenging development, the number of vehicles has been increasing every year by 50,000 to a lakh since the year 2010, and poor infrastructure in the cities has proved to be incapable of managing the same. A report by the Kalyan Regional Transport Authority (RTO) suggested that the number of vehicles in the two cities has increased from 5.43 lakh to around 9 lakh in five years. Despite the notable increase, no traffic lights were installed and no additional manpower was appointed to ensure efficient management of traffic. A KDMC official told the Hindustan Times that traffic signals could not be installed owing to a lack of response from maintenance companies. Reportedly, the traffic police department blamed the KDMC for poor management. Assistant Commissioner of traffic police, Ulhasnagar, stated that the KDMC was supposed to install traffic signals and that even after writing to them quite a few times, there was no response from their side. According to HT, there are 260 traffic personnel manning around 9 lakh vehicles in Kalyan and Dombivli, leaving a requirement of up to 200 more men in order to ensure efficient management. On speaking to the regular commuters, it was also discovered that since August 2018, the traffic on the Kalyan-Shilplata route has deteriorated. Citizens have also stated that the twin cities need proper infrastructure in order to ensure smooth traffic movement. Wider roads, more manpower and attention to the issue needs to be given by the concerned authorities so that they can evenly balance the increase in vehicles.

2019-01-19Signals, more cops and wider roads needed to unclog Kalyan-Dombivli - Hindustan Times
Signals, more cops and wider roads needed to unclog Kalyan-Dombivli According to data from the Kalyan Regional Transport Authority (RTO), the number of vehicles in the twin cities rose from 5.43 lakh in 2013 to nearly nine lakh in 2018. Updated: Jan 20, 2019 00:28 IST Although the number of vehicles in Kalyan-Dombivli increased every year by 50,000 to a lakh since 2010, the twin cities have barely been able to match this rise with adequate infrastructure. The long-standing demand for wider roads, traffic signals and a better traffic management system in the twin cities has gained momentum after 50-year-old old Vasant Shingote, a Kalyan Dombivli Municipal Transport (KDMT) bus driver, died on Thursday as he could not reach the hospital in time for treatment owing to major traffic congestion. According to data from the Kalyan Regional Transport Authority (RTO), the number of vehicles in the twin cities rose from 5.43 lakh in 2013 to nearly nine lakh in 2018. However, in these five years, the cities still did not get traffic signals or adequate manpower and infrastructure to deal with the increased traffic flow. Although the Kalyan Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) installed traffic signals at 10 places in 2004, owing to lack of maintenance, they became defunct in two years. It now plans to install signals at 30 chowks under the Smart City project. A KDMC official said signals could not be installed as there was lack of response from maintenance agencies. “Under the Smart City traffic policy, we will allow advertisements on signals. We hope to get good response.” KDMC chief Govind Bodke also said the civic body is now prioritising the work. The traffic police department, however, blamed KDMC for the delay. Pradip Gosavi, assistant commissioner of traffic police, Ulhasnagar, who is currently in-charge of Kalyan traffic police, said, “KDMC is supposed to install the signals . The department wrote to KDMC several times, but the demand was not considered. We provided a list of 30 places that require signals.” Commuters and activists in Kalyan-Dombivli have also complained about the poor traffic management. Currently, there are around 260 traffic department personnel handling nearly nine lakh vehicles in the twin cities. There is a requirement of at least 200 more staffers, claim officials. Vishwanath Biwalkar, Eagle Brigade Foundation, Dombivli, said, “We have worked with the traffic police and realised there is lack of manpower. The department should come up with a list of major traffic points and deploy more personnel there.” A senior traffic inspector said they are following up with the transport ministry to tackle the problem of lack of manpower. Gosavi said the traffic department has been deploying wardens at prominent points during peak hours and that 40 wardens from KDMC have been acquired to handle congestion at Patripool. Sahil Poojari, a 30-year-old motorist who used to take the route daily, said, “Till 2017, the traffic in the city was controllable. Since August 2018, after the Patripool was closed for demolition, the traffic movement in Kalyan-Shilphata stretch has been hit badly.” KDMC officials also claimed the civic body has initiated the work of implementing the traffic and parking policy under the Smart City scheme. “The detailed project report will be submitted to the Smart Kalyan Dombivli Corporation Ltd on January 28. After the nod, we will initiate the tender process.” The projects under the smart city scheme which are estimated to be completed by 2020 comprises of installing traffic signals, declaring parking and non-parking zones, introducing pay-and-park facilities, improving public transportation , installing street lights, and introducing a vehicle tracking system. Citizens have also been highlighting the need for wider and better roads, free of encroachment by hawkers and illegal parking. In 2012, KDMC initiated road widening works, which got delayed as it required a lot of demolition. In 2015, the project got a push with former civic chief E Ravindran taking up widening of 35km of 14 major roads on priority. KDMC has so far managed to widen 85% of 14 vital roads. Small roads across the city however still remain narrow and congested. Citizens and activists also said wider roads will not make a major difference as the bridges remain narrow. “We do have plans to widen more roads but it depends on the funds allotted to KDMC by the state,” said a town planning department official.
2019-01-18Panvel residents have to pay 32% property tax from April 1 - Hindustan Times
Panvel residents have to pay 32% property tax from April 1 Residents had not been paying any property tax since the PCMC was formed in October 2016 Updated: Jan 19, 2019 00:24 IST More than two years after its formation, the Panvel City Municipal Corporation (PCMC) for the first time has levied a property tax on its residents. The civic body will charge owners 32% of the rateable value of their property. For lower-income groups (those who live in spaces less than 300 sq ft) the property tax will be 12% of the rateable value. These rates will come into effect from April 1. The proposal was approved by PCMC’s general body on Thursday. Residents had not been paying any property tax since the PCMC was formed in October 2016. But while they came under the erstwhile Panvel Municipal Council, they paid 33% property tax. The PCMC will give a 2% incentive to those who pay their property tax online and also if they do so three months before the deadline. Welcoming the tax structure, PCMC House leader Paresh Thakur said, “We welcome the proposal of the administration. It is a well-prepared tax structure that will not burden the residents and help us provide better civic services to Panvel.” Opposition leader Pritam Mhatre said the administration should have spoken to all stakeholders, including residents and social organisations and taken their suggestions before levying the tax. “The residents of Cidco nodes are already paying taxes to the development body. Levying property tax on them will amount to double taxation,” Mhatre said. The delay in implementing the tax has affected the health of the PCMC’s coffers though. Municipal commissioner Ganesh Deshmukh said, “Property tax is one of the most important sources of revenue for any civic body. The proposal should have been brought forth within six months of formation of the civic body. The delay has hurt the civic body financially as we need funds for the development of our region.” Deshmukh said the tax rates proposed by PCMC were following guidelines and regulations given by the government. “It [property tax] is lesser than what was levied during the time PMC existed. The tax is, in fact, the lowest when compared to areas like Mumbai, Thane, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan, Bhiwandi and other areas under MMRDA region.” Ashok Mhatre, 48, a resident of Panvel said, “After PCMC was established on October 1, 2016, we had been apprehensive that the new property tax structure would be higher under the corporation. The commissioner’s proposal has come as a relief.” “Of course it will be a burden to those from the rural areas and the economically-weaker sections. However, the tax is necessary and it is our duty to contribute to the development of our city,” Mhatre said. “We will ensure that there is no injustice on the common man while levying the tax. We are confident that the residents will cooperate fill and pay in time to ensure Panvel can face the challenges that lie ahead,” Deshmukh said.
2019-01-18On the run: Wanted in five states, bookie from Ulhasnagar evading police for 4 years - The Indian Express
On the run: Wanted in five states, bookie from Ulhasnagar evading police for 4 years In May 2015, the Gujarat Enforcement Directorate (ED) had raided two of Anil Jaisinghani’s houses and booked him under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. He continued to be on the run citing poor health and eight months later, applied for a transit bail in the Bombay High Court. Published: January 18, 2019 8:02:52 am Wanted in six cases registered in five states, Anil Jaisinghani, a known bookie from Ulhasnagar, has been evading the police for four years now. Arrested thrice in a betting case, Jaisinghani has, in all, 16 cases registered against him. In May 2015, the Gujarat Enforcement Directorate (ED) had raided two of Jaisinghani’s houses and booked him under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. He continued to be on the run citing poor health and eight months later, applied for a transit bail in the Bombay High Court. Assistant Commissioner of Police Vijay Kadam (Azad Maidan division) said, “The Ahmedabad sessions court had issued a non-bailable warrant against him. Initially, posing to be ill, he got admitted in a hospital but later submitted a bogus medical certificate, claiming that his wife Karishma is to undergo a test for a surgery.” The Azad Maidan police were later informed that he had forged the signature of a Lilavati hospital doctor. Following this, a case of cheating and forgery was registered against Jaisinghani on May 1, 2016. As the police couldn’t locate him in three years, the HC declared him a proclaimed offender last year. Kadam said, “Jaisinghani is mainly based in Ulhasnagar and everybody knows him. After a proclamation notice was issued by the HC in September last year, we posted banners in the hope that somebody would inform us about his location. But we are still trying to find him.” Officers from Gujarat ED as well as Mumbai, Thane, Goa, Assam and Madhya Pradesh Police are looking for Jaisinghani. RTI applicants receive condoms instead of replies Rajasthan A complainant, Kishor Keswani, said: “Jaisinghani is known for lodging false complaints against people and extorting money from them. He had also got a false case of rape and drug possession registered against me with the Goa and Assam police, respectively. I got a clean chit and a case was registered against him.” Following this, the Goa and Assam police sought help from Keswani. “We were called to the police station when they were analysing Jaisinghani’s call detail record (CDR)… we found that several policemen, including two assistant commissioners, a deputy commissioner and a superintendent of police, were in touch with him. We took a copy of the CDR and submitted it in the HC, which asked two deputy commissioners of police from Mumbai to probe the matter and submit timely reports,” said Keswan’s nephew Deepak. In September 2018, Azad Maidan police had sealed Jaisinghani’s Ulhasnagar residence. Last week, the HC directed the investigators to seal his hotel in Shirdi.

Thane woman accuses old flame of rape Updated: Jan 15, 2019, 06:00 IST Man from Chinchwad allegedly tried to extort money from complainant using the threat of putting compromising videos of hers on social media A 38-year-old woman from Ulhasnagar on Sunday lodged a complaint against a man from Chinchwad, alleging that he raped her and tried to extort money from her via threats. After the plaint was registered at Chinchwad police station, cops informed that the accused — identified as Vishwanath Walhe (40) — has been booked on charges of rape and attempt to extort money from the 38-year-old complainant, who is a resident of Thane district and has known Walhe for many years now. She mentioned in her statement that Walhe and she had an affair around 14 years ago, when they were in college. Later, she got married to another man and shifted to Surat with her new family. She and Walhe had no contact at all for a long time, but chanced upon each other many years later on Facebook, where they began chatting and sharing contact details. According to the complaint, they met at Ambernath in the locality sometime later, where the woman claims Walhe tried to forcibly establish sexual relations with her. Later, when they met once again at Chinchwad, the accused repeated this act. This time, he secretly recorded a video of both of them. Using this evidence, he soon started threatening to expose her and demanded a sum of Rs 1 lakh to not do so. Walhe allegedly claimed he would share those videos on social media and cause them to viral, affecting the woman’s life and future. Instead of complying with his demands, this woman finally decided to approach Chinchwad police. She described that the duration of the incident ranged from November 21, 2018, to January 9, 2019. Now, Walhe has been booked under sections 376 and 385 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) for charges of rape and attempt to extort money by threatening her; IPC section 506 was also invoked for criminal intimidation. Police inspector (crime) of Chinchwad PS, Vishwajit Khule, confirmed that the case was registered on Sunday evening. He said, “As the first incident took place at Ambernath, the offence will need to be transferred to that PS. We have registered an FIR and transferred it to Shivajinagar police station in Thane.” He added that there have been no arrests in the case yet, as action now needs to be taken by that respective PS. The status of the accused is unknown to cops here for now. As the first incident had taken place at Ambernath in Thane district, the offence has to be transferred to that police station.

Maharashtra: Visually impaired achiever promotes organ donation at brother's wedding Updated: Jan 11, 2019, 06:45 AM IST Being visually impaired has never stopped Pranjal Patil from being inspirational. A recent wedding event in her family turned into a platform to promote the cause of organ donation. Patil, 30, who has now been appointed deputy collector of Kerala's Ernakulam district, used this family occasion to pledge to donate her organs and inspire others to do the same. Currently undergoing training in Kerala for her appointment as deputy collector, she found time to visit Ulhasnagar recently. "It was my brother's wedding at the end of December in Ulhasnagar," said Patil. It was a joyful occasion for the family, which wanted to do something to benefit the society. "My parents thought it would be a great idea to do something for society on this occasion," she said. "In India, there is a lot of demand for organs but their availability is an issue due to lack of awareness among people," she said. About two years ago, Pranjal Patil from Ulhasnagar had cracked the Union Public Service Examination 2016 with a rank of 773 in her first attempt. Patil, who had lost her vision completely when she was just six, has now taken over as the Assistant Collector of Ernakulam. She said there was some misunderstanding among people about organ donation. "People think that after donating organs, our body loses its shape. But that is not the case. Even after your organs are removed, the body remains as it is from outside," she said. Hence, a team of volunteers which includes three doctors and social work superintendent Satish Wagh put up their desk at the wedding hall. "It was a happy occasion where many people were present. And Patil Madam and her husband pledge their organ donation," said Wagh. The doctors raised awareness about the need for organ donation and distributed volunteer forms for those interested. "My husband, me, my parents and some relatives pledged their organs, while some others took the forms," Patil said. "Even after your death, you give something back. And do not lose anything," she said. WOMAN OF ACTION About two years ago, Pranjal Patil from Ulhasnagar had cracked the Union Public Service Examination 2016 with a rank of 773 in her very first attempt Patil, who had lost her vision completely when she was just six, has now taken over as the Assistant Collector of Ernakulam

100 Tilak Nagar buildings get MHADA notices Updated: January 12, 2019 01:19 IST The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) has issued notices to 100-odd residential buildings in Tilak Nagar, asking them to comply with fire safety norms and secure occupation certificates (OCs), in the wake of the fire in the area in December that killed five people. Residents will be given time to start the procedure, failing which MHADA will even serve eviction notices for unauthorised occupation. But residents are in a fix as most buildings are old and do not have any firefighting appliances. After the fire in December in a redeveloped building, it came to light that the structure did not have an NOC from the fire brigade or an OC. The Mumbai Fire Brigade and MHADA found several violations. Moreover, another building where a minor fire broke out on Wednesday, did not have an OC either. Officials said of the 160-odd buildings in Tilak Nagar, only two have OCs. Almost all others were issued notices under the MRTP Act last week. Deependra Singh Kushwaha, chief officer, MHADA Mumbai Board, said, “People need to secure compliance certificates from the fire brigade and then apply to us for an OC. There are a few cases of alterations that will have to be removed. Once they secure fire compliance, we will issue OCs on priority. But if residents do not take these steps, we will have to issue eviction notices.” Worry for residents But residents are now faced with the question of how to secure fire compliance. Advocate Nitin Nikam, president, Tilak Nagar Residents’ Welfare Association, said, “We have already started taking steps for fire safety. We held a rally for awareness and are taking experts to each building to train people in disaster response.” When asked if the buildings can install firefighting equipment, Mr. Nikam said, “Some buildings may not have the scope for that, while in some, residents may not have funds. They will have to come together and do it. MHADA should definitely take action against major construction violations, but we expect that they give us some relaxation. They should allow us to regularise the area, the way Ulhasnagar was regularised. Eviction notices will not serve any purpose.” According to Mr. Nikam, both MHADA and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) are passing the buck in the matter. “The BMC allowed these buildings without OCs to have electricity and water connections at much higher rates and made money out of it. And since people could not afford to pay rent elsewhere, they moved into these buildings. These agencies have woken up just now because of the fire,” he said. Local corporator Susham Sawant said, “We will give the necessary guidance to people. But the matter of the OCs is very complicated. Apart from fire compliance, this area does not have a proper sewage network either. That will have to be done before OCs are issued.”

The viscera preserved by doctors was later sent for examination to a forensic laboratory, which in-turn approached the Maharashtra Council of Indian Medicine (MCIM) to verify details of doctors who treated the girl. The MCIM last week submitted a report to the Thane police, stating that Sharma was practising without registration with it and recommended that action be taken against him, Gaikar said.

Jadhaw, who used to work at a hospital until March 2017, was employed in the post-mortem room, sources said. “He attacked victims in a manner that they wouldn’t be grievously injured but scared enough to handover their belongings. He knew about the weak points of the body,” said an officer privy to the investigation. On December 23, Akhilesh Varma (20) who worked at a steel store in Ambernath East, was attacked by the trio. “They tried to rob him of his wallet and a gold chain. They also wanted the key to the store. When Varma tried to fight back and was grievously injured by Jadhaw,” said the officer. Rajnath Singh: How can Naxals be called Gandhians with Guns? “We arrested the trio while they were hiding in Ulhasnagar on Thursday. The two other men are from Ambernath. Jadhaw decided the targets and the two were his side-kicks. The three were unemployed and lived off robbing others,” the officer said. The trio were remanded to police custody. “We have also alerted other police stations where cases against them have been registered,” he added.

2019-01-03Housing secretary given charge of Maharashtra home department - Times of India
Housing secretary given charge of Maharashtra home department Updated: Jan 3, 2019, 01:50 IST MUMBAI: Chief minister (CM) Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday entrusted charge of the home department to additional chief secretary (housing) Sanjay Kumar, an IAS officer of 1984 batch. The post was lying vacant after retirement of Sunil Porwal on December 31. He has been appointed as information commissioner for Konkan region. It was expected that CM may appoint additional chief secretary (services) Sitaram Kunte or additional chief secretary (industries) Satish Gavai as additional chief secretary (home). However, since additional charge has been given to Sanjay Kumar, it appears that the CM will make high-level changes in the bureaucracy on February 1, when chief secretary Dinesh Kumar Jain retires. Additional chief secretary (relief & rehabilitation) Medha Gadgil (1983 batch), additional chief secretary (finance) U P S Madan, secretary to GOI Sanjeevani Kutty, Union finance secretary Ajay Bhushan Pandey, municipal commissioner Ajoy Mehta, Sanjay Kumar and Satish Gavai, all from the 1984 batch are in the zone of consideration for appointment as CS. Gadgil was sidelined when her junior D K Jain was appointed chief secretary following retirement of Sumit Mullick. If Gadgil is not considered, Madan may be appointed as new chief secretary on February 1, in that event, Mehta may take over as home secretary and CM’s additional chief secretary Praveen Pardesi as the new municipal commissioner.

The cop was beaten up by two men when he tried to stop a New Year Eve party.

The incident occurred in Ulhasnagar and a case against both the accused has been registered and both have been arrested. On December 31, a party was organised at Camp No. 3, Municipal Town Hall, for the New Year's celebration. Loud music was played at this party and at around 4 AM, Police Inspector Deepak Dabhade of Central Police Station reached the spot with his team. The police unplugged the speaker and the manager of the Town Hall was taken to the police station for inquiry. Soon after, some people from the party came to the police station. One of the accused, Manish Sonawane, started video recording on his mobile while the investigation was being conducted and claimed that they were ‘allowed’ to party till 5 AM. Subsequently, the cops told Manish to not shoot the video and they tried to stop the video recording. Police then tried to investigate Sonawane about possible consumption and possession of drugs. During this, he beat up sub-inspector Dabhade and his accomplice, Mahesh Kordale, also assaulted the police officer. Upon hearing the commotion, another police officer went to resolve the issue. Police officer Wanjari, who went to solve the dispute, was first bitten by the other accused. To make it look like a case of police brutality, Sonawane then tried to hurt himself by banging his head on the noticeboard. Police have registered case against Manish and Mahesh at the central police station.
2019-01-03Meet Aisha Mohammad, a women who made a name out of carrom, a game dominated by men - Oneindia
Meet Aisha Mohammad, a women who made a name out of carrom, a game dominated by men Updated: Thursday, January 3, 2019, 17:11 [IST] Mumbai, Jan 3: She recently won the women's singles title in Mumbai District Ranking carom tournament organised by Bajarang Krida Mandal and sponsored by the Bank of Maharashtra at the Maharashtra Labour Welfare Board Hall in Lower Parel in October. Aisha Mohammad State champion Aisha Mohammad has made a long journey to become an accomplished carom player today. Mother of a son, Aisha started playing the sport she has made a name in at the age of seven when her father Santosh Hyalinge bought her a carom board. She grew up mastering the game at her home in Ulhasnagar in Maharashtra's Thane district and the reason is that the game was known to be one dominated by men and the local carom clubs had a lot of male players making it uncomfortable for a woman aspirant, according to a report in People's Archive of Rural India (PARI). When Aisha was eight, she took part in a competition for the first time and played against a senior opponent. Though she lost the match but it flagged off a special journey for her and she went on becoming only better from then onwards. In 2003-04, Aisha won Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Award, Maharashtra's highest sports award. Aisha found her life partner also in a carrom player and it was Mohammad Sajid who also has a decent command over the game. They met each other at a tournament and got married despite objections from their families, the PARI report added. Aisha now lives in Jalgaon in Maharashtra with her son, husband and father. She works at Jain Irrigation Systems and also trains children in carrom in school, the report added.

Mumbai University’s distance learning centre fails to find a spot on UGC list Mumbai University’s Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) is not on the revised list of recognised distance learning institutes released by the Universities Grant Commission. The UGC said IDOL’s recognition was under review by an expert committee. In August last year, IDOL was left out from a list of institutes recognised to give distance learning courses. This was a result of lack of A grade from the National Assessment and Accreditation Council since April 2017. The institute was asked to submit a proposal to continue running such courses, which was to be reviewed by a committee. However, IDOL was left out in the updated list of recognised institutes published on December 31. A public notice stated that the proposal from the Mumbai University will be further assessed through expert committee visits. Other institutes in a similar situation include MATS University and Sikkim Manipal University. An official from IDOL said, “The fresh proposal was submitted to the UGC on October 5, 2018. The UGC’s letter says there would be expert committee visits, which means the recognition process is ongoing.” IDOL sees an annual enrolment of nearly 70,000 students.

On Monday, they got their vision back after an NGO recently conducted surgeries to restore their eyesight. Besides the three centenarians, the remaining eight are 65 years old and above. All the patients are tribals and, due to poverty, could not get their cataract operations done on time. The surgeries were conducted at Central Hospital in Ulhasnagar. The joy on the faces of the patients at regaining their eyesight was a heart-warming sight. The surgeries were facilitated through the NGO run by Sakib Gore. Gore, a Badlapur resident, who has been working for the visually challenged for the past 23 years, said he has distributed over eight lakh spectacles to the needy from villages in Murbad, Shahapur and Kalyan talukas. Gore said his NGO has enabled operations for nine lakh people. Of these, he has paid from his pocket for 43,000 surgeries, he said. Talking to TOI, Avdi Mengal, 105, said, "I lost my eyesight around 8-10 years ago, but I will be now able to see my grandchildren again." Kashibai, 102, said, "As we are very poor, we could not manage to get our cataract surgeries done and had to live in the dark for many years. We have now got our vision back thanks to Gore."
