2015-10-28Sena activist shot at in Mumbai - Khaleej Times
Sena activist shot at in Mumbai Nithin Belle Filed on October 29, 2015 Mumbai: A Shiv Sena activist was shot at by unidentified persons in north-west Mumbai on Tuesday night. Anil Chavan, a deputy chief of the party at Kashimira, an extended suburb, was shot in the head, but survived the assassination bid. According to the police, two men on a motorcycle accosted Chavan at Mira Road and fired three rounds at him. The first hit him on his head, but the other two missed the victim. He was rushed to a local hospital, before being shifted to a government hospital in the city. Mira Road is a rapidly expanding extended suburb of Mumbai, where there's an unholy nexus between builders, politicians, bureaucrats and police officials. More than a dozen such extended suburbs north of Mumbai have seen mushrooming residential townships and slum colonies in recent years. Many of the buildings have been promoted by politicians or builders with links to political parties. These builders have violated every town planning norm and constructed high-rises without the necessary permits. Even the courts have passed strictures against the government in the past for these illegal structures. In Ulhasnagar, another distant suburb, the Bombay court high had ordered the demolition of scores of buildings that had come up illegally. But about 10 years ago, the government sought to regularise the buildings to get around the court order. Politicians from different parties are frequently targeted by the underworld in these suburbs, either because they expose the rackets, or because of rivalry. Last month, a Sena leader was attacked by unidentified persons in Thane. Earlier in the year, another Sena leader was shot and killed by a group of men in nearby Diva. About a dozen men attacked him with swords and choppers and later shot him dead. The murder was related to a dispute over some property. With property prices soaring in Mumbai's extended suburbs including Navi Mumbai, Thane and Vasai-Virar, there have been growing instances of attacks and gang wars in recent months.

2015-10-24Govt to expand Metro network to MMR - Hindustan Times
Govt to expand Metro network to MMR HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times, Mumbai |  Updated: Oct 25, 2015 00:39 IST Apart from the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar metro line, which is operational, and the under-construction Belapur-Pendhar metro line in Navi Mumbai, work on all other metro projects is yet to start. (File photo) Share Share Share Share With plans to build an extensive metro rail network in Mumbai back on track, the state government is set to shift its focus to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), which has struggled with poor transport systems for years. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) will ask the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to update the metro master plan for a metro network across MMR, which includes cities such as Thane, Navi Mumbai, Bhiwandi, Kalyan-Dombivli, Mira-Bhayander, Ulhasnagar and Vasai-Virar besides Mumbai’s. The population of MMR, including Mumbai, is over two crore. The past two decades have seen phenomenal commercial and residential development in these areas, but transport systems connecting them to each other and to Mumbai remain poor. The majority people who live in these cities travel to Mumbai for work and largely rely on overburdened local trains. Now, MMRDA is set to revisit the metro master plan for MMR (excluding Mumbai), which was envisaged under the Comprehensive Transportation study (CTS) in 2008. Last year, MMRDA invited tenders to update the CTS as many proposed developments in it were not executed. It plans to build metro lines across MMR to connect areas such as Thane city, Kalyan and Bhiwandi. There is also a plan to build a metro line along the proposed business corridor from Virar to Alibaug. Recently, the state government discussed the possibility of building an underground metro line from Mankhurd to the upcoming Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA), which would also connect it to other important locations in Mumbai through the Dahisar-Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd (Metro 2) project. MMRDA commissioner UPS Madan said, “DMRC will take another look at the metro master plan for MMR. The objective of the exercise is to see if any new metro lines can be introduced or proposed lines modified to improve connectivity.” MMRDA had prepared the CTS in 2008 with the help of a research consultancy, LEA Associates, and the World Bank. The CTS suggested various ways to upgrade existing transport systems and add capacity through metros, monorails, suburban railway lines and highways. DMRC has already updated the detailed project reports (DPR) for recently approved metro lines — Dahisar East-Andheri East (Metro 7) and Dahisar-DN Nagar (part of Metro 2). Now, it has started updating the DPRs for Jogeshwari-Kanjurmarg (Metro 6), Wadala- Ghatkopar-Thane-Kasarvadavali (Metro 4) and BKC-Mankhurd (part of Metro 2). It will finish updating the DPRs of all metro lines in the city before moving on to other metro plans in the CTS. Apart from the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar metro line, which is operational, and the under-construction Belapur-Pendhar metro line in Navi Mumbai, work on all other metro projects is yet to start.

2015-10-24Assault on doctors: 14 cases in last 4 months, doctors say book accused under ... - The Indian Express
Assault on doctors: 14 cases in last 4 months, doctors say book accused under state Act Written by Rohit Alok | Mumbai | Published:October 25, 2015 12:04 am Dr Shashikant Dode from Central Hospital in Ulhasnagar is the latest victim in a string of attacks in which doctors across Maharashtra have been assaulted, most often by irate family members of patients. Dode is believed to have fractured his rib, injured his wrist and eardrum and sustained several other bruises after relatives of a deceased patient attacked Dode last week on Thursday. According to the Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD), 64 cases have been recorded under the Doctor's Protection Act, 2010. Of this, the highest number 19 have been registered this year as of October and 14 of these attacks have taken place in the past four months. While hospital authorities are now making efforts to ensure that every such offender be booked under the Maharashtra Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage of Property) Act, 2010, commonly referred to as the Doctor's Protection Act (DPA), doctors say the real number of assaults on their fraternity is higher than what the recorded number suggests. If convicted, offenders under the Act are liable for three years jail or fine of Rs 50,000, a stricter punishment than charges of assault under the Indian Penal Code. There are many more assaults off the records than on the records. The police are now being pressurised to register these cases because the doctors are coercing them to, said a senior doctor at JJ hospital. According to Dr Sagar Mundade, president of MARD, Hospital staff going on strikes is the most recent tactic. Of the last 13 incidents, seven times we have gone on strike just to compel the police to file an FIR (in an assault case), he said. According to senior doctors, in July, a notice was issued by the Directorate of Medical Research and Education after the order of the state medical education minister Vinod Tawde asking deans of all civic-run hospitals to personally resolve the issue or register the matter with the police. Following the circular, Dr Avinash Supe, Dean of KEM Hospital, has personally registered at least two cases of assualt at Bhoiwada police station. There is already an increasing workload on the doctors and now the violence is escalating. We deal with 600-900 emergency patients everyday, claimed Supe. Earlier there used to be an exchange of words but now the relatives look for the closest object to use as a weapon. Relatives cannot keep patience and they always want us to take them as priority , said Supe, who was earlier the head of Sion Hospital. In 2011, there were only 10 cases recorded under the DPA. The following year in 2012 there were 12. In 2013, 11 cases were reported and, last year, 12 incidents of assault were recorded under the Act. A senior doctor pointed out that the crux of the problem behind the numerous assaults on doctors that doctors cannot counsel each of patient's relatives. It is a civic hospital there is no time for a doctor to counsel each family. These resident doctors work 18-20 hour shifts every alternate day and they do reach their limits of irritability and there is an evident trust deficit which is widening, said a doctor.
2015-10-24Treat docs as you would have them treat you - Mid-Day
Treat docs as you would have them treat you By MiD DAY Correspondent |Posted 3 hours On Tuesday, after a railway accident victim succumbed to her injuries, her relatives assaulted the on-duty surgeon at Central Hospital, Ulhasnagar. The vicious attack left Dr Shashikant Dode with a fractured rib, an injured eardrum and several bruises all over his body. Three youngsters were arrested in the case by the Central police station. The deceased patient was a 38-year-old who was run over by a CST-bound train while crossing the tracks. Unfortunately, the assault on the doctor is part of an increasingly familiar pattern. Doctors tend to patients, something unfortunate happens, like the death of the patient, and relatives go berserk. At times, they assault the doctor and vandalise the clinic or hospital. The fact that doctors are now reaching out to private security agencies to protect them shows how serious the problem is. Several hospitals have also hired additional security to protect doctors, who have been advised to meet patients relatives with security in tow, in case of death. Recently, the Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) sent a letter to the Chief Minister to look into this particular matter. The World Health Organisation (WHO) also cited figures on violence against doctors indicating that it was a global issue. This is a sad commentary on the patient-doctor relationship. The increasing chasm has to be filled through dialogue and, at the grassroots level, medical students must be extensively counselled on how to handle the patient's family. Even in this age, doctors must give enough time to answer queries and quell the fears of the family. Having said that, people need to have patience and not automatically jump to the conclusion that there has been negligence if a relative passes away. Heat of the moment cannot be an excuse for violence. If the family feels hard done by, they have recourse to other methods like consumer courts. Beating up medical professionals is reprehensible and in fact, chips away at the very base of a patient-doctor equation, which is that of trust.
2015-10-23Doctor sustains rib fracture, injures eardrum in attack by patient's kin - Mid-Day
Doctor sustains rib fracture, injures eardrum in attack by patient's kin By Sadaguru Pandit |Posted 2 hours Relatives of woman, who had been run over while crossing the tracks near Ulhasnagar station, allege negligence on his part caused her death Only five days after a patient's kin verbally abused a doctor at the Bhabha Hospital at Bandra, an on-duty doctor of Central Hospital, Ulhasnagar, was beaten up by relatives of a patient. Doctors and employees protest outside Central Hospital after the assault on Dr Dode. The relatives of a railway accident victim, who succumbed to injuries on Tuesday afternoon, assaulted Dr Shashikant Dode, the on-duty surgeon. The attack left Dode with a fractured rib, injured eardrum and several bruises over his body. The Central Police Station of Ulhasnagar arrested three youngsters in the case, including a 16-year-old. Dr Dode, who was beaten up, has been admitted to the casualty ward Kalyan Government Railway Police officials said that the patient, who was later identified as 38-year-old Saeeda Begum, had met with an accident on Tuesday at 9.05 am. She was apparently crossing the tracks near Ulhasnagar station and was run over by a CST-bound train. Kalyan GRP officials took her to Central Hospital. The patient's condition wasn't satisfactory when brought to the hospital. She had suffered a head injury, bilateral fractures of both the lower limbs and a stomach injury, said the attending doctor. Meanwhile, Saeeda's family was informed. At around 1 pm, her condition started deteriorating and Dr Dode informed the relatives about the same. He also informed them that earlier doctors were planning to shift her to KEM Hospital but since the relatives weren't available for consent, they continued the treatment at Central Hospital. However, within half an hour of updating the relatives, Saeeda succumbed to the injuries. Her angry relatives started alleging negligence on part of Dode and his team, due to which she died. The relatives met Dr Ashok Nandapurkar, Civil Surgeon of the hospital, complaining about the negligence and asked him to take action. Nandapurkar reviewed the case papers and explained the gravity of the injuries sustained by her, and sent the body for forensic analysis to gain clarity on the cause of death. Doctor hit by relatives However, at around 5.45 pm, when Dr Dode was outside the casualty ward, around 5-6 youngsters who were nephews of Saeeda, according to the statement given to the police officials, started punching and kicking him for the alleged negligence that led to the death of their aunt. A few security guards and doctors saved Dode from further injuries. The guards also managed to catch three of the youngsters and inform Central Police Station. Condemning the attack, Dr Nandapurkar said the incident took place barely 15 minutes after he left. I received the call about this incident. The attack, in the wake of all the recent attacks on doctors and healthcare workers around the state, is very disheartening and discouraging. A doctor, who would be negligent to the extent that his patient will die is yet to be born, no doctor would want his patient to die. But at times, it's not in our hands to treat a patient whose condition is already critical, said Nandapurkar. Extra guards Officials of the hospital met the DCP of their jurisdiction yesterday, requesting him to increase the security of the hospital and provide extra guards for casualty and labor departments. Police speak Police Inspector (Crime) S V Meher, said that they have booked all the accused under Sections 333 (Voluntarily causing grievous hurt to deter public servant from his duty) and 353 (Assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) along with 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code and 3 and 4 of Maharashtra Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage of Property) Act, 2010 commonly known as Doctors Protection Act. The minor accused has managed to get bail on personal bond, other two accused, Salman Siddique Shaikh (23), Saifali Sharif Shaikh (19) are in police custody and will be produced in the court tomorrow. We are taking all the necessary care to ensure safety and security of the doctors, said Meher.

2015-10-23How nursery rhymes are expected to revive a declining language - Hindustan Times
How nursery rhymes are expected to revive a declining language Manoj R Nair, Hindustan Times, Mumbai |  Updated: Oct 23, 2015 20:32 IST Share Share Share Share This month, a group of Sindhi speakers started a project which they think will preserve their language from disappearing in India. The group wants teachers in schools run by Sindhi trusts to teach old nursery rhymes - set to new tunes - to their students. There are hundreds of such institutions in cities like Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Ajmer that received refugees during the country’s partition. Some of these schools still teach the language, but many have switched to English and Hindi, creating fears that the language is hurtling towards extinction.   The Sindhi Sangat, a cultural organisation based in Mumbai, has used nursery rhymes by Koshi Lalvani and an adaptation of the Panchtantra for the language project. Many of these nursery rhymes are familiar to the older generation, but have been set to fresh tunes for the new generation of learners. Earlier this month, Sindhi Sangat met school managements in Mumbai localities areas with a large concentration of Sindhi speakers, like Chembur and Ulhasnagar, to convince them to take up the programme. In Chembur, the Vivekananda Education Society, which runs seven schools, said they will start the project in two of their institutions after the Diwali holidays. “Learning the language is already compulsory for our students who take admissions using the quota for Sindhi speakers. If we start teaching the spoken language in the nursery, these students will pick it up earlier,” said Padma Vaswani, trustee. “I have asked teachers to prepare for the classes.” The institution said it has enough teachers who understand the language. “We sent teachers who came from Sindhi-speaking families to a one-year certificate course in the language,” added Vaswani.          Similarly, Hare Krishna NCT, which runs five schools in Ulhasnagar, plans to teach the language to kindergarten students. Prakash Choudhary of the group estimates that nearly 30% of the students in the schools come from Sindhi families. “But many of them now speak Hindi and English at homes. If the language is taught at a young age, it will survive in future generations.”       Chand says there are other benefits of teaching children their mother tongue at a young age. “The Sindhi language has unique pronunciations that can be learnt only if it is picked up at a young age. These pronunciations are hard to learn when students learn the language in their teens,” said Chand.  Without a state of their own that can promote their language, Sindhi speakers have been worrying about its future. After the only private television station in the language closed down a few years ago they have been campaigning for a Doordarshan-run channel. A few decades ago, as schools in the language started shutting down, they asked colleges run by the community to teach the language.  “This is the only way in which we can bring a real change. People should understand that if we go through this process of teaching our children the language, we will be able to keep our identity alive,” said Chand. After independence, one dispute among the speakers of the language was whether to use the Arabic script, which is used in their native Sind, or to promote the Devnagri alphabet. Chand’s group wants to promote the Arabic script – though they prefer to call it the Sindhi alphabet - because of some features absent in the original Arabic. Others feel that this insistence on using the Arabic script was leading to the language’s decline in India. Siddh Bhauji, chairman of Shaheed Hemu Kalani Educational Society, Bhopal, which runs schools and colleges, said that the dispute over the script was killing the language. “People who understand the Arabic script are dying. If we teach the language in the Devnagri script, it will be possible to preserve it,” said Bhauji. “People who can read Sindhi in the Arabic script, like me, are few. It is a matter of shame that the language is dying because of this dispute over the script.”   Tags Nursery rhymes Sindhi trusts Language Share Share Share Share Read more from Livemint also read SC questions Maharashtra govt’s ‘weird’ licence norm for dance bars Negligence led to blaze at Girgaum’s Make In India event: Fire dept rep...

2015-10-22Why create problems when we live in peace: Marathi-speaking community from ... - Daily News & Analysis
Why create problems when we live in peace: Marathi-speaking community from Karachi to Shiv Sena Thursday, 22 October 2015 - 7:05am IST | Place: New Delhi | Agency: dna | From the print edition Shweta Desai A small group of Maharashtrians, from a place the Shiv Sena hates, has a question to the party: Why create problems when we live in peace here? We are Maharashtrians, Hindus and Pakistani citizens, said the Marathi-speaking people interviewed by dna. In Karachi, there are a little over 100 Marathi-speaking families with around 500 members, who trace their roots to Maharashtra. One of the last remnants of Marathi history in Karachi is the 160-year-old Narayan Jagannath High School, the first government school to be established in Sindh. As many as 25,000 Marathi-speaking people lived in Karachi before Independence. Today, only a handful of families are there. Though Pakistani citizens, they are fiercely proud of their roots, culture and traditions. Ask 42-year-old Sujata Jadhav. Three decades ago, she moved to Karachi as a young bride from Pimpri near Pune after completing her class 10. She chose to continue her life as a Maharashtrian. When the sound for azaan comes in the evening from the nearby mosque, we begin our aarti for Navratri, she tells dna on phone. In an attempt to exhibit to ally BJP its influence as a Hindu right-wing party, the Shiv Sena in the last fortnight revived its decade-old anti-Pakistan stance, targeting artistes, sports persons and writers from that country. On Wednesday, senior leader and state environment minister Ramdas Kadam even asked those opposed to Sena's stance to go to Pakistan. Vishal Rajput, a Pakistani citizen and member of the Shri Maharashtra Punchayat, Karachi, rued the current state of affairs. Rajput, whose relatives from his mother's side are spread from Ulhasnagar to Pune, said protests like the current ones by the Sena spread hatred. Despite being a minority community, Maharashtrians have always received full support from the Pakistan government to celebrate Ganpati festival, carry out processions and even refurbish temples. In fact, Muslim families participate in our celebrations and festivals, he said. In Pakistan, fringe Islamist groups consider idol-worshippers as infidels and, hence, a target for persecution. In the last decade, Pakistan has seen an increase in sectarian violence where Christian, Shia Muslim and Hindu minorities have been slayed. Hindus constitute a little over 1% of Pakistan's population. Minorities are discriminated against economically, socially and politically. It is hard for Hindus to get government jobs despite a 5% reservation, let alone aiming for promotions. Those from the economically backward class in Sindh and around live in the fear of forced religious conversions and marriages, abductions for ransom and rape. Since partition, many Hindus have returned to India and many more continue to flee on the pretext of pilgrimage and live as refugees in Rajasthan, Delhi and other areas. But the Marathi-speaking community has come to terms with living in an Islamic country. However, they say, when it comes to religious freedom, they never faced any hurdles from their Muslim neighbours or even the state. Suresh Kamble (name changed), another Marathi-speaking resident of Karachi, doesn't recall from which part of Maharashtra his family originally hailed. From the beginning, we are Pakistanis -- me, my parents and my ancestors, he says in broken Marathi, adding, We belong here and there has never been any problem as far as our freedom was concerned. Rajput, who runs a popular page of the Maharashtrian community on Facebook, said the government should take full responsibility to control incidents like Sena's opposition to Pakistan. Tomorrow, if we want to come back, we should be allowed to and not opposed. Jadhav, who has come to Maharashtra four times since her marriage, says she has never been targeted for being a Pakistani citizen. Why should I when I have a valid visa? People who come on a passport and official visa entry from Pakistan should be considered as guests, she stresses. Delhi-based Sena leader Mangat Ram Munde, who was responsible for digging the Ferozhshah Kotla stadium during the India-Pakistan match in 1999 and also for several other protests in the national capital, said the protests against Pakistanis would continue. Hindus are living in a bad state in Pakistan. If they want to come back, we will welcome them. But we will not let any artiste or other Pakistanis to come to India. Those who have relatives here are welcome to come, not others, he said. But the Sena, the party that projects itself to be the saviour of the Marathis, must pay heed to the concern of Rajput: We hope such events don't have any repercussion on our community in Karachi. Hope the Thackerays and Kadams will listen to fellow Marathis concern, even if it is from across the border.

2015-10-22Delhi gems shop behind Ulhasnagar card fraud - Times of India
Delhi gems shop behind Ulhasnagar card fraud Pradeep Gupta,TNN Oct 23, 2015, 12.58 AM IST Kalyan: The owner of a gem stone shop in Delhi and his accomplices, including a former bank employee, have been arrested for defrauding a Kalyan woman of Rs 1.5 lakh after getting her credit card details. Shahil Kuvar, 21, owned the shop and was helped by Hitendra Chavan, 19, and Komal Chaudhari, 24, who had worked with the credit card department of a bank. All three are residents of Uttam Nagar in Delhi's Janakpuri. A team of Kolsewadi police seized 30 SIM cards, several mobile phones and 60-70 pages of credit card details from Hitendra and Komal and believe they may have cheated others. They are working on leads and may arrest some bank staffers who are suspected to have been forwarding the credit card details. Railway employee Kajal Dadlani, 36, from Ulhasnagar had walked into a trap when Komal called her up as a bank employee and sought her credit card details, including the one-time password, on the pretext of upgrading her card. Soon, she found her card had been charged for Rs 1.5 lakh for online shopping. With help from her relative Gautam Thawani, Dadlani contacted the nationalized bank that had issued the credit card and the Thane cyber cell. They learnt that payment details showed that precious and semi-precious stones worth Rs 89,000 had been bought online from Ridhi Sidhi Traders, the shop owned by Shahil in Uttam Nagar. Some other items too had been bought from an e-commerce site. With these details, the cyber cell asked Dadlani to lodge a complaint with the local Kolsewadi police. Senior inspector Kalyan Ghete formed a team of three cops who, along with the victim, went to Delhi last week. When they reached the shop, they found signed card payment slips that made it look like customers had made the purchases from Ridhi Sidhi's website and paid by card. When police grilled Shahil, he confessed about the racket and gave the names of Komal and Hitendra. Shahil had contacts with some bank workers, who gave credit card details. Komal and Hitendra would call up the card owners claiming to be bank executives and collect details on the pretext of card upgradation. Then the fraud would be played out.

2015-10-21Ex-Ravi Pujari aide follows mentor's extortion path - Times of India
Ex-Ravi Pujari aide follows mentor's extortion path Ahmed Ali,TNN Oct 21, 2015, 11.27 PM IST MUMBAI: After lying low for some time, underworld gangs are once again targeting businessmen, particularly builders. Leading the way is Suresh Pujari, a former lieutenant of the Ravi Pujari gang. Last week, the anti-extortion cell of the city crime branch arrested seven members of the Suresh Pujari gang who were threatening and demanding extortion from a finance broker. According to the police, the complainant started receiving threat calls in September from an international VOIP number. The caller introduced himself as gangster Suresh Pujari and demanded Rs 5 crore from him. The complainant then approached the joint commissioner of police (crime) Atul Kulkarni. Kulkarni handed over the probe to the anti-extortion cell, which later arrested the seven accused from Navghar, Ghatkopar, Ulhasnagar, Surat and Pune. The arrested accused include Prakash Bicchal, Mubaasshir Sayyed and Guatum Mehta. "During the course of investigation, it transpired that all these accused were Suresh Pujari's childhood friends from Asalpha village in Ghatkopar and Dombivli and Ambernath belt. After splitting from Ravi, the accused brought all his friends together and with their help started targeting the same victims his mentor used to threaten," said senior inspector Vinayak Vast. Suresh's aides were instrumental in passing information about potential targets, arranging cash and shooters, carrying out reconnaissance of targets and sending money through hawala. A key feature of Suresh's modus operandi would be to tell his targets to check out Youtube clips of shooters killing a cable operator in Ulhasnagar. Police said they are trying to find out who uploaded the video. The police had seized a 9-mm pistol and seven live rounds along with 14 mobiles from the accused. Last week, the anti-extortion cell arrested seven members of the Suresh Pujari gang who were demanding extortion from a finance broker. All the accused were Suresh's childhood friends from Asalpha village in Ghatkopar and Dombivli and Ambernath No Mixed-Media Items 21sa-gang.
2015-10-21Navi Mumbai CP must form team to probe fake sale deed cases, says HC - Free Press Journal
Navi Mumbai CP must form team to probe fake sale deed cases, says HC By FPJ Bureau Oct 22, 2015 04:20 am Mumbai : The Bombay High Court today suggested that the Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner form a team of officers to investigate cases where flat sale deeds are prepared on the basis of forged and fabricated documents by builders and people are being duped of their money. A division bench of justices A S Oka and V L Achiliya was hearing two public interest litigations by residents Rajiv Mishra and advocate Mayura Maru raising concerns over illegal constructions in Navi Mumbai. The bench had last week taken a stern view of the issue and said the police have to initiate criminal action against the builders. The court was today informed that an FIR has been registered and inquiry is on. This is a serious issue. The Navi Mumbai Commissioner should form a team of officers to be headed by a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP). We will ask MIDC, Cidco and other civic authorities to inform the police if they come across any illegal construction. The police can then go to the site and see the sale deed agreement. If the documents are forged then criminal action can be taken, the court said. The court also suggested that the police can give public notice calling for people to come forward and lodge complaints against builders. The court has posted the petition for hearing on October 28. The state government last week informed the court that it was planning to regularise all illegal constructions in Navi Mumbai, and said it will be framing a policy on this soon. The court had, however, said that even if such a policy is formed it shall not be implemented until the court gives permission. The state formed a similar policy for Ulhasnagar. That is still understandable as there were a lot of refugee camps there in the past. But not for Navi Mumbai, the court said. PTI

2015-10-2065 yrs on, Sindhis can buy Thane tenements - Times of India
65 yrs on, Sindhis can buy Thane tenements Shrutika Sukhi,TNN Oct 20, 2015, 09.19 PM IST Thane: It has been a long journey from their family mansions, huge land holdings and thriving business enterprises in Multan or Balochistan, to the cramped refugee shelters in Thane and Ulhasnagar, surviving on free food packets in camps built for those fleeing their homeland in Pakistan. For the Sindhi community, memories of the partition that ravaged their homes and lives will never be erased. Nonetheless, the Sindhi diaspora bonded well in a completely new cultural milieu in Thane their new home since 1947-50. More than 65 years later, occupants of these once-refugee camps here have been given the rights to purchase these tenements, which are more than brick and mortar for them. Inside these small tenements is a treasure trove of memories of their loved ones and struggle to eke out a living in a new neighbourhood. The recent announcement by revenue minister Eknath Khadse to allow them the right to purchase their old homes has invited cheer among the community elders here who have seen the metamorphosis of these camps into a bustling colony. There were a total of 25 ground-plus-one storied buildings at Kopri, 17 of which were given to the refugees. A special rate of Rs 2,800 was declared for outright purchase of these tenements, and those who could ill-afford this amount had the option of paying a monthly rent of Rs 21 then. "While some could pay the whole money within a few years, the others failed to do so, they were then told by officers to vacate the house as it would be auctioned, but the people were not reluctant to give up their houses and didn't move out. The officers later didn't interfere in the matter nor ever came back,'' said Parasram Tikmani (72), who was all of four when he landed in Thane from his home in Balochistan. "I was four years old when we came to Mumbai. We boarded a ship from Karachi port and landed in Mumbai after three days. The docks was our home for the first two days, after which we were taken in a truck to Kolshet-Akbar camp. We lived there in a barrack, which was dimply lit by a bulb, and wall partitions were done by cloths." Tikmani's elder brother, Chandumal, was the only person in the family who was working. He used to roll 1,000 bidis in a day and earn Rs 1. The family lived in the Kolshet camp for six years and was later asked to shift to Kopri. "We were reluctant to move out as we were scared that it would be worse than what it was in Kolshet. We held on for days but eventually they cut off our electricity connections and we had to move out." The Kopri house has been the Tikmani residence for years and the family has fond memories of their home. For Khushal Patoli (77), the Kopri camp is a place which symbolizes a sense of survival and triumph over an avalanche of difficulties. "I was nine when we fled from our Pir Goth village in Sukkur district in Sindh province as the mindless masscare had began. My parents took me and my younger sister to Karachi from there we chose to come to Mumbai where we were initially sent to the Kolshet-Akbar camp. My mother, who was 40-year-old then, died while giving birth to a baby in the camp due to the inadequate medical facilities in the camp hospital. We moved to Kopri later and purchase this house for Rs 3,100. It is here that I got married when and started my career and my family. This place have given me so much in life and the memories are to be cherished forever.'' Ditto in the case of Hemraj Jethani (75) who was all of seven years when the family left their home in Sindh provice for survival and were brought to Thane. "After spending some years at the Kolshet refugee camp, we moved to Kopri. My brothers were married till then. It is here that I completed my studies and paid for my education by taking tuitions, working in Reserve Bank as a coin examiner etcetera," a retired civil engineer told TOI. The state government decision to give them rights to purchase this property has brought a sense of relief to their long-pending demand and they all hope the decision will not only restore the crumbling structures but protect their long history and association with these homes.
2015-10-20With MBMT on verge of collapse, ST buses offer lifeline to Uttan - Free Press Journal
With MBMT on verge of collapse, ST buses offer lifeline to Uttan By suresh golani Oct 20, 2015 02:12 am Bhayander : The adage Old is Gold applies for people living in and around the coastal villages of Uttan near Bhayandar. With the so-called privately operated high-tech public transport system of the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) on the verge of collapse, it's the good old State Transport (ST) buses that have come to the rescue of harried commuters. After a gap of 10 years, the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) authorities resumed its services on the Bhayandar-Uttan route. MP Rajan Vichare inaugurated the resumption of services which will benefit people living in villages including Rai, Murdha, Morva, Pali, Chowk, Karai-Pada and Dongri who were forced to rely on the erratic and rickety bus services provided by the MBMC-appointed private operator. The MSRTC had stalled its operations on this route after the MBMC introduced it's own public transport authority in the year 2005. After operating bus services on its own for a couple of years, the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Transport (MBMT) utility adopted the Public-Private-Partnership format and inked a 10-year pact with Ulhasnagar based-Kestrel Infrastructure, which agreed to pay a royalty of Rs 1 per km. However this translated into a nightmare for local bus commuters. Irate over the failure of the private operator in improving the bus services, the agitated villagers had also observed a bandh on Saturday. Unable to resolve the issue, the MBMC had sought the help of the MSRTC and BEST authorities. Complying to public demands and intervention of the local MP, the ST authorities finally gave its nod to re-introduce buses on one route, even as efforts are on to resume services in the Bhayandar-Gorai-Manori belt.

2015-10-18Eight held for threatening to kill broker - Times of India
Eight held for threatening to kill broker in Mumbai Mateen Hafeez, TNN | Oct 17, 2015, 11.15PM IST MUMBAI: The Mumbai anti-extortion cell has arrested eight persons for allegedly threatening to kill a finance broker, a Chembur resident, unless he paid him Rs 5 crore. The broker had been receiving threat calls from the little known Suresh Pujari gang, which would use internet calling cards to threaten the broker over the phone. "We have arrested eight persons, including those who arranged finance for the shooters, those who did a recce, and the money distributors to other gangsters," said Atulchandra Kulkarni, joint commissioner of police, crime branch. Pujari had threatened to wipe out the complainant's family if his demand was not met. "You can visit the YouTube and see the video of a cable owner's murder in Ulhasnagar last month.

2015-10-14Sindhis await ownership rights to refugee camps - Mumbai Mirror
Sindhis await ownership rights to refugee camps By Jyoti ShelarJyoti Shelar, Mumbai Mirror | Oct 15, 2015, 03.16 AM IST Govind Khilnani and his wife Rekha, say the portions of their building in Kopri Colony, Thane (above) are already crumbling and need urgent repairs Two weeks after the state govt announced that it will grant the Sindhi refugees property rights, the community says only speedy implementation will save their crumbling homes. Two weeks after the state government announced that it will grant property ownership rights to the Sindhi refugees who migrated from Pakistan after Partition and settled in Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra, the community is hoping that the process would be expedited. The largest beneficiaries of the decision would be thousands of families settled in Ulhasnagar, Chembur Colony, the Wadia Trust Estate (Kurla), Koliwada Colony (Sion) and Kopri Colony in Thane. Soon after Partition, the government had allotted land to the Sindhi refugees in 31 places across the state. The land was given as the B-tenure (the term used by the Revenue Department), which made it binding on the residents to seek the collector's permission for any development on the plots. Though the families were never asked to vacate the plots, they were also never registered as the rightful owners in the government records. Thousands of families who later tried to sell their plots were either denied permission or asked to deposit 50 per cent of the income in the government kitty. On September 29, Minister for Revenue Eknath Khadse said the ownership rights will be transferred to the Sindhi families who had occupied land or property between 1947 and 1950. "The owners will have to pay one-time amount, which will be 50 per cent of the Ready Reckoner (RR) rates. The owners will not have to seek approval of the district collector for future sale or resale of their properties," Khadse had said. "The process (to hand over colonies) is in its final stages and will be passed by the state Cabinet soon," Khadse told Mumbai Mirror on Wednesday. Hargovind Khilnani, 78, and his wife Rekha, 75, who occupy a room in a two-storeyed building in Kopri Colony, said that they have been living in a hope to own the property one day. Their building is crumbling, and without ownership rights, it cannot be redeveloped. "We hope the decision is implemented," said Rekha, whose family occupies Building No 13 in a colony that houses 25 buildings on an 18-acre plot. The two-floor structures have 36 studio apartments measuring about 200 sq ft each. "The drainage is choked and the walls have leakages," Rekha said, adding that one of the buildings partially collapsed three months ago after which the tenants had to vacate. Hargovind, whose family migrated from Malir town near Karachi, said that soon after Partition, the Sindhi families were allotted a barrack area that came to be known as Akbar Camp. "A cholera outbreak forced everyone to move out," Hargovind recalled, adding that Kopri Colony was then offered to the refugees in 1953. The government proposal, however, may take a while to get implemented, said the community leaders. Former Thane corporator Veena Bhatia said that there was no clarity on whether the government will transfer the ownership of land to the residents or the housing societies. "Besides, many of the camps have been encroached on and the government has to deal with all these aspects," she said. Naresh Tahilramani, an activist from Ulhasnagar, said that the entire area has already been redeveloped illegally. "When the refugees first arrived here, some families were prompt to get the conveyance deed made in their name, while a few didn't. The state government's decision may only help this minuscule number of families in Ulhasnagar who have not made the conveyance deed," he said.

2015-10-14MBMC seeks help from ST, BEST to ease commuter woes - Free Press Journal
MBMC seeks help from ST, BEST to ease commuter woes By Suresh Golani Oct 15, 2015 03:49 am Bhayandar :Fed up of repeated complaints from commuters of erratic and rickety bus services provided by the private bus operator, the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) has now sought help of the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) and Brihanmumbai Electricity Supply and Transport (BEST) authorities to ply buses on various routes in the Mira-Bhayandar region. Admitting the pathetic condition of the buses and the helplessness expressed by the private operator, civic chief Achyut Hange has requested both the authorities to operate their buses in the region till the arrival of 90 new buses to improve its own public transport utility. The decision of seeking BEST and MSRTC help followed the decision taken at a joint meeting between the civic administration and all-party group leaders. The MSRTC had stalled its operations on the Bhayandar-Uttan route after the MBMC introduced its own public transport authority in the year 2005. After operating bus services on its own for a couple of years, it adopted the Public-Private-Partnership format and inked a 10-year pact on a Build-Own-Operate-and-Transfer (BOOT) with Ulhasnagar based-Kestrel Infrastructure, which agreed to pay a royalty of Rs 1 per km. However, the PPP model turned out to be a Pro-Private-Player agreement that translated into a nightmare for local bus commuters who have been constantly complaining about the erratic bus frequency and the rickety condition of buses especially on the Bhayandar-Uttan-Manori routes. As of now, less than 30 out of the fleet of 55 buses ply in and out of the twin-city. While the MBMT boasts of operating on 33 routes, buses on around 12 routes are non-operational apparently due to shortage of buses.

2015-10-12Policy being framed to protect illegal buildings in Navi Mumbai: Govt to HC - Hindustan Times
Policy being framed to protect illegal buildings in Navi Mumbai: Govt to HC HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times, Mumbai |  Updated: Oct 12, 2015 21:29 IST A bulldozer pulls down an illegal building in Digha last week. (Bachchan Kumar) Share Share Share Share The state government wants to regularise all illegal constructions in Navi Mumbai, and has said it will be framing a policy on this soon. Advocate general Anil Singh, on Monday, informed the Bombay high court (HC) that the state government would be coming out with a policy to regularise unauthorised constructions in the satellite city. “We are coming out with a policy to regularise unauthorised structures in Navi Mumbai,” Singh said in response to a petition filed by residents of Pandurang Apartment at Digha, Navi Mumbai. He indirectly sought a stay on the implementation of the earlier orders issued by the court to demolish all illegal structures in Navi Mumbai. The Bombay high court has, however, said that while the government was free to adopt a policy to regularise all unauthorised constructions in Navi Mumbai, any such policy could not be given effect to without prior permission of the court. In view of this observation, Singh stated that the state government would not give effect to any policy, even if adopted, without the approval of the high court. Acting on two public interest litigations, the court had on July 30, 2015, ordered City and Industrial Development Corporation (Cidco), Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) and the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) to form special squads to identify illegal constructions in their respective areas in Navi Mumbai. The development authorities were asked to issue notices to the occupiers first and then demolish the unauthorised structures. The bench also directed Cidco, NMMC and MIDC to complete the survey of all illegal constructions within six months. In the same order, the court had also stopped the government from extending protection to illegal constructions in Navi Mumbai, as has been done in Ulhasnagar and Pimpri Chinchwad. The PILs are filed by residents Rajiv Mishra and advocate Mayura Maru raising concerns over illegal constructions in Navi Mumbai. While Mishra highlighted the rise in the number of unauthorised constructions in Digha, Maru directed the court’s attention towards FSI (floor space index) violations. Maru’s PIL stated that, in 2010, NMMC’s town planning department had surveyed 22 towers on Palm Beach Road and found that FSI rules were violated.

High Court directiveBased on a PIL filed by activist Rajeev Mishra and Mayura Maru, the Bombay High Court on September 23 directed CIDCO and MIDC to raze illegal structures in Digha. Out of the 94 illegal buildings, 90 have come up on MIDC land and four on CIDCO land. On Monday, MIDC officials razed two buildings, Shivram and Parvati apartments amidst angry protests from locals. On Tuesday, occupants of Keru Plaza were asked to evacuate the building. Officials from MIDC said that they will continue the drive until further orders from the court. Speaking to mid-day, Avinash Mali, deputy engineer MIDC, said, As per the High Court directive, we will continue our demolition drive and will not stop until new orders come from the court. Meanwhile, Belapur MLA Manda Mhatre told mid-day that she, along with NMMC opposition leader Vijay Chougule, MP Rajan Vichare and state PWD minister Eknath Shinde met Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday. We had a meeting with the Chief Minister on the Digha issue, which he promised to look into, she said. Political lobby Commenting on the status of illegal structures in Mumbai like Campa Cola, as well as in Mumbra and Ulhasnagar, advocate Vinod Sampat pointed out that illegal structures prevail everywhere, however action is not taken against each due to presence of local political lobbies. Presence of a powerful political lobby is the reason behind illegal structures prevailing in these areas. However, in Digha that does not seem to be the case and hence the demolition has not stopped, he said. It should also be noted that majority of the population staying in Digha belongs to the economically weaker sections of society. Residents want justice Prathamesh's parents feel cheated by the developer as they had purchased the one room kitchen flat in the year 2011 by depositing Rs 12 lakh. I see my parents crying. They say that we cannot stay in this building and will have to look for a new house, said a nervous Prathamesh. Residents paid taxes Another resident of Keru Plaza, 42-year-old Mandakani Salian said that she bought a house in the building in the year 2012 and regularly paid tax, water and electricity bills. From 2012 I have been paying all the required taxes to the municipal body. If the structure was illegal then why was NMMC collecting taxes from us and why did MSEB officials give an electricity connection to our building? she asked. Salian has shifted all her belongings to her mother's place in Bhandup. I have left my six-year-old daughter at my mother's place. It is the responsibility of the local authorities to make temporary rehabilitation arrangements for us. Nobody has come to help. We are here with no food since Tuesday, she added. We want justice Another resident, Chandrika Koli (30), was holding her 2-year-old daughter and her belongings on a footpath. We want justice. The authorities have woken up after so many years and suddenly asked us to evacuate our homes. Why didn't they object when the building was constructed? The developer is not answering our calls. Where are we supposed to go now? The municipal body should arrange temporary accommodation for us and take action against the developer, she said. She further revealed that her husband does odd jobs in a small private firm and had invested their entire savings in buying the house a few years ago.

Two builders held in Rs 66 lakh cheating case George Mendonca,TNN| Oct 8, 2015, 12.30 AM IST MUMBAI: The Economic Offences Wing's (EOW) sleuths arrested two of the four partners in a construction company on Tuesday in Mira-Bhayandar area. The accused had allegedly absconded in May 2015, when a property investor filed an FIR alleging that four partners had cheated him of Rs 66 lakh. "The accused, Gopal Thakur (40) and Hasmukh Thakur (38) are brothers and directors of Monarch Solitaire Company in CBD-Belapur. They allegedly cheated the victim, Nagendra pratap Umashankar Singh (40), by taking money in installments for two flats in an Ulhasnagar housing project in 2013," said EOW inspector Rajendra Pawar. Two years later, when Singh did not get possession of the flats, he approached the CBD police and lodged a complaint. The four men including one real estate agent then shut shop and absconded, he added. "The duo had been switching locations for the last five months and were finally arrested after we received a tip that they were at a hotel in Kashimira," he said. They have been remanded to police custody.
