2014-02-11'Use GPS to spot illegal structures'
'Use GPS to spot illegal structures' TNN | Feb 11, 2014, 02.28 PM IST THANE: The Bombay high court has suggested the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites to civic bodies across the state to keep a track on illegal constructions in their jurisdictions.The suggestion was made a couple of days ago by a division bench of justices N H Patil and V L Achiliya while hearing a public interest litigation (PIL). The PIL has alleged rampant corruption in the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation which sanctioned 110 building proposals in 2010 without following norms. The court observed that if such a GPS technology is not available now, then it may be considered in future and it can be initiated by all the corporations. The bench directed the advocate appearing for the Ulhasnagar civic body to take instructions from the municipal commissioner in this regard and get back to them in two weeks. The PIL, filed by one Ravi Talreja, alleged some town planners in Ulhasnagar, in collusion with civic officials, had granted either permission or regularised 110 unauthorised structures in contravention of the Development Control Regulations (DCR). In 2005, the high court, hearing another PIL, had ordered demolition of 855 illegal buildings in Ulhasnagar.

HC to civic bodies: Track illegal constructions through GPS Press Trust of India | Mumbai February 9, 2014 Last Updated at 15:55 IST The Bombay High Court has asked civic bodies across Maharashtra to keep track of illegal constructions mushrooming in their jurisdiction through Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites. The suggestion was made a couple of days ago by a Division Bench of Justices N H Patil and V L Achiliya while hearing a public interest litigation (PIL). The PIL has alleged rampant corruption in the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation, which it said, sanctioned 110 building proposals in 2010 without following norms. "Is it not possible to keep track of such illegal constructions through GPS satellites? With it, the authorities can see if a building (developer), who has been given permission to only construct two floors, has added more floors illegally," Justice Patil said. "If such a technology is not available now then it may be considered in future. It can be initiated by all the corporations," the court said. The Bench directed the advocate appearing for the Ulhasnagar civic body to take instructions from the Municipal Commissioner in this regard and get back to it in two weeks. The PIL, filed by one Ravi Talreja, alleged the then town planner A P Gurgule, in collusion with civic officials, had granted either permission or regularised 110 unauthorised structures in contravention of the Development Control Regulations (DCR). The Bench was informed by the state government that an inquiry has been initiated against Gurgule. In 2005, the HC, hearing another PIL, had ordered demolition of 855 buildings in Ulhasnagar, a township in adjoining Thane district, which had come up in violation of DCR rules.

A fisherman saved them, but the girl is critical as water filled her lungs. The youth is stable, but under observation at NMMC hospital . Around 11am, Suraj Ganvir and the girl, a class XI student, reached Vashi bridge on a bike. "I was heading to Uran when I saw the couple, who was holding hands, jump off the bridge. I informed the Vashi traffic chowky located on the other end of the bridge and brought them to the spot," said Ravindra Bobde (30), a Ghatkopar resident. Vashi traffic police inspector Yunus Shaikh said, "As the couple was being pulled in by the current due to the high tide, we signalled to fisherman Vinod Gowd (45), who was in the creek, and he rescued them. He brought them to the shore in his boat, and we pumped out the water from their stomach and rushed them to the civic hospital in Vashi. The case has been handed over to the Vashi police."
