Raj Thackeray to begin Maharashtra tour on May 1 UPDATED: MAY 01, 2018 00:35 IST To visit areas along the proposed bullet train route Mumbai: With no organisational structure to escalate the party’s electoral performance and lack of second rank leadership, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray is set to begin a State-wide tour from May 1 to overcome his party’s shortcomings. In the first leg of the tour, from May 1 to 5, Mr. Thackeray will be travelling to Palghar and Thane. According to party sources, Mr. Thackeray will be addressing only one public rally in his tour which will be in Vasai on Tuesday evening. “He will focus more on meeting local leaders of the party, and also meet individuals from different walks of life to understand their view about the MNS and improvements required in the party functioning,” said an MNS leader. On Monday Mr. Thackeray made his Twitter debut with official handle @RajThackeray. Few months ago he had launched his official Facebook page where he has been sharing his cartoons and comments on political developments. Mr. Thackeray has been a vocal critic of the bullet train project between Ahmedabad and Bandra. He has planned his visit along the proposed rail route and is likely to raise the issue during the tour. Mr Thackeray will be visiting Palghar, Boisar and Wada on May 2. On May 3, he will visit Bhiwandi and Shahapur, on May 4 he will visit Murbad and Ulhasnagar and will spend last day in Badlapur. “In the next leg he will visit Konkan. All regions will be covered phase-wise,” said the leader.
2018-04-30109 dozen mangoes ripened with toxic chemical seized from Navi Mumbai market - Hindustan Times
109 dozen mangoes ripened with toxic chemical seized from Navi Mumbai market FDA officials seized them from two out of 20 outlets of APMC fruit market as the wholesalers were using calcium carbide MUMBAI Updated: Apr 30, 2018 12:26 IST Artificial fruit-ripening methods used by some mango wholesalers and retailers are a health hazard for Mumbaiites. As Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) officials consider regulating the sale and distribution of calcium carbide, a hazardous chemical compound used for mango ripening, members of Agricultural Produce Market Committee, Navi Mumbai, said poor quality control system and high demand for ripe mangoes are key reasons chemicals are being used. In a recent crackdown, FDA officials seized over 109 dozen mangoes from two out of 20 outlets of APMC fruit market. Officials found that the two wholesalers were using calcium carbide—an agent that produces acetylene gas that acts like the natural ripening agent ethylene to accelerate the ripening process. “Apart from being a carcinogenic chemical compound, calcium carbide contains arsenic and phosphorus, known to be fatal for human consumption. While the sale of artificial ethylene is allowed in permissible limits, acetylene is completely banned due to known side effects,” said Chandrashekhar Salunkhe, joint commissioner (Food), FDA. Salunkhe added that the samples of seized mangoes have been sent to laboratories to test the residue levels of hazardous chemicals and upon receiving the report, action will be taken against the culprits under Food Safety and Consumer Protection Act, 2006. In 2017, FDA officials in Ulhasnagar had seized around 890kg of mangoes from wholesalers who were using calcium carbide as a ripening agent. Officials, considering the trend, said they have considered writing to the state and union ministry, to regulate the rampant sale of the component and put a stop to the mischievous activities. “The component, available in powder form, is used in welding and numerous other processes, which have no connection to the food industry and hence it’s easily available at hardware stores. We will write to the appropriate department to regulate the sale to licensed merchants so that such indiscriminate use of the chemical agent can be stopped,” Salunkhe added. However, members of APMC market said that the FDA should ideally create awareness amongst the consumers and wholesalers, who have created a stressful demand supply chain that forces the latter to opt for unnatural methods of fruit ripening. “Every day, over 1.25 lakh mango boxes come to APMC market from every part of the country such as Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. If FDA can set up mobile laboratories to test and certify each truck or create a process of surveillance that ensures contaminated mangoes don’t reach consumers, these activities can be abolished,” said a top APMC member. “Due to high demand of consumers, they are not ready to wait for the natural ripening process, which takes about a week. Nobody wants to opt for such methods, but economically weaker section of merchants don’t have a choice to wait as consumer demand is high for ripe mangoes,” the member added.

2018-04-30Boats to the rescue: Waterways to help decongest Mumbai's packed roads & locals - ThePrint
Boats to the rescue: Waterways to help decongest Mumbai's packed roads & locals 30 April, 2018 Roll-on-roll-off and passenger-only ferry services likely soon, could cut travel time by 80 per cent. Mumbai: Thirty-five years after the Maharashtra government first mooted the idea of tapping Mumbai’s waterways for public transportation, the concept looks likely to finally take off, albeit in a small way initially. The Maharashtra government plans to operationalise a roll-on-roll-off ferry service that will allow passengers to carry their cars on board from Mandwa, near Alibaug, to Ferry Wharf in south Mumbai, potentially cutting the commute time by 80 per cent, from 3.5 hours to 45 minutes. Mandwa falls in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, the larger urban agglomeration around Mumbai (like Delhi’s national capital region), spread over 4,355 sq km with a population of more than 20 million. It includes the satellite towns of Greater Mumbai, Thane, Kalyan-Dombivali, Navi Mumbai, Ulhasnagar, Bhiwandi-Nizamapur, Vasai-Virar and Mira-Bhayandar. The public transportation system for the region is overburdened, and the linkages weak between many areas. The existing suburban railway network carries 75 lakh passengers daily, 2.6 times its capacity. The waterway service, which will run along Mumbai’s eastern coast, is likely to be commissioned in about a month. While ferries do currently operate between the Gateway of India and Mandwa, the service is shut during the monsoon, and there is no provision for the transportation of cars. Officials say they hope to employ boats of a superior quality, and more comfortable, under the new project. Part of a bigger initiative The Mumbai-Mandwa link is part of a clutch of projects the Devendra Fadnavis-led state government has planned to use the region’s inland waterways for public transportation. “The Mumbai-Mandwa route is more feasible for transportation of cars from one place to another, so that villages around Mandwa and Alibaug can also use it. But the rest of the routes that are being worked on are all about helping people move from one place to another,” said Manoj Saunik, principal secretary, transport. “It is a small beginning, but the transportation systems in the city are so stressed that any beginning, any new efficient transportation system that we can provide people, is good news,” he added. The most obvious benefit of the link would be the commute time. Mandwa and Mumbai are 105 km apart by road, and it currently takes 3.5 hours to cover. However, it is also expected to decongest the Mumbai-Goa highway and spur development in Alibaug tehsil. “The project currently will have just a five per cent impact on the current traffic. But opening up the waterways is a welcome move. By cutting the commute, it will help save fuel and reduce pollution,” A.V. Shenoy, a Mumbai-based transportation expert, said. The roots of the idea In 1983, an expert group from the state home department mooted the idea of tapping the sea surrounding Mumbai for public transport. Their report, titled ‘Development of Waterways around Bombay Harbour for Commuter Traffic’, was followed by a number of studies on the same lines. The state government eventually took up a concrete plan to implement a roll-on-roll-off and passenger transport system along Mumbai’s eastern coast in 2007-08. At the time, the project was much larger in scope and entailed nearly three times the expenditure expected on the current venture. Between then and 2014, the project was constantly shuttled between two government agencies — the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) — without much progress. It had several false starts, failing to take off on account of the high cost and concerns over the viability of such an expansive project. In 2015, CM Fadnavis handed over the remit to the Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB), a government agency tasked with the administration of ports and harbours. What it will look like In its current form, the service will have one berthing terminal each at Ferry Wharf and Mandwa, at a total cost of about Rs 150 crore. The plan involves one more terminal en route at Nerul in Navi Mumbai, the construction of which is under way and is likely to take over a year to complete. When the MSRDC was in charge of the project, the plan was to have four berths for the roll-on-roll-off service and eight for passenger ferries at Ferry Wharf and Nerul. Mandwa was to have two berths for the roll-on-roll-off service and three for passenger ferries. An engineer working on the project said, “Almost 95 per cent of the civil infrastructure work on the Mumbai jetty and 85 per cent on the Mandwa jetty is complete. The private operator who will run the service will procure the boats.” Coast to coast Like the eastern coast, there was a plan for a passenger water transportation system on the western coast as well, connecting the far-west suburb of Borivali to Nariman Point in South Mumbai. However, this project too has seen several failed rounds of tendering due to concerns over its viability as the sea on the western side is much choppier, which would make it difficult to run the service all year round. Saunik, the principal secretary for transport, said, “The west coast project is still not being found to be technically feasible. It will have to be out of operations for the four monsoon months.” “One aspect is that it might be financially difficult for the operator to bring expensive equipment that is going to be non-functional for four months. But more importantly, it will be very difficult to get regular commuters on a system that won’t function during the rains,” he added, “Everyone likes to follow a routine pattern of commuting to work.” On the agenda of the satellites The Thane and Navi Mumbai civic bodies, too, are working on projects using inland waterways. The Thane Municipal Corporation recently received the Union government’s in-principle approval to start work on an inland waterways project across creeks to connect Thane to Vasai and Kalyan, with nine stops along the way. The civic body is also working on a detailed project report for a similar link between Thane and the Gateway of India, Panvel, and the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust in Navi Mumbai. The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC), meanwhile, is trying to establish an all-weather water transport link between Belapur in Navi Mumbai and Ferry Wharf in South Mumbai. If the plan is successful, it will enable commuters to reach South Mumbai from Belapur in about 20 minutes on a smooth hovercraft as against the 40-minute ride in a packed train or an hour’s drive. NMMC N. Ramaswamy said, “There are a lot of daily commuters between Navi Mumbai and Mumbai and a clean and efficient option to reach their destination in 20-30 minutes will be very popular.” The MMB has issued an expression of interest to scout for an operator for such a hovercraft service. Ramaswamy said if the efforts failed, the NMMC and the MMB would consider forming a joint venture and running the operations themselves.

109 dozen mangoes ripened with toxic chemical seized from Navi Mumbai market Monday | 30th April, 2018 In a recent crackdown, FDA officials seized over 109 dozen mangoes from two out of 20 outlets of APMC fruit market.

2018-04-29NCP looks to former finance minister Jayant Patil to steer the ship - Mumbai Mirror
NCP LOOKS TO FORMER FINANCE MINISTER JAYANT PATIL TO STEER THE SHIP Updated: Apr 30, 2018, 02.30 AM IST Newly elected state president of NCP has his task cut out this election season Jayant Patil (56), who served as the state’s finance minister for nine long years, was unanimously elected state president of Nationalist Congress Party at a party convention in Pune on Sunday, replacing Sunil Tatkare. The party is hoping Patil will be able to steer the ship in these difficult times just as he steered the state’s ship during the financial crisis between 1999 and 2004. Patil, an engineer from VJTI, was pursuing his master’s degree at MIT in US when he had to return to India following his father’s death in 1984 to look after his father’s cooperative empire which included sugar cooperative, milk cooperative and cooperative bank, among others. He contested his first Assembly election successfully in 1990 on a Congress ticket from Islampur in Sangli district - he has been representing the constituency ever since. Between 1995 and 1999, when the first Sena-BJP government was in power in the state, Jayant Patil was part of the famous Patil troika which kept the saffron government on its toes in the Assembly. The other two Patils were former deputy chief minister late R R Patil and former Assembly speaker Dilip Walse-Patil. After Congress split in 1999, the Patil troika decided to throw their weight behind Sharad Pawar’s NCP. Pawar rewarded these young Turks, who were still in their late 30s and early 40s, with cabinet rank ministership in the state government, which it formed in alliance with the Congress. Jayant Patil was given charge of the finance ministry. At the time, the state’s financial condition was in a precarious condition due to overspending by the previous government on ambitious projects like the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, Krishna Valley irrigation project, among others. Besides, the implementation of the fifth pay commission had also put a considerable strain on the state’s financial resources. In his nine-year stint as finance minister from 1999- 2008, Patil took firm steps to strengthen the state’s finances like delinking dearness allowance paid to state government from central government, appointing a committee of secretaries to probe the issue of excess state government staff and, acting on their report, abolishing many posts in the state government. He also tried hard to delay the implementation of the sixth pay commission as much as possible. Taking advantage of falling interest rates, he also raised fresh loans to retire high cost debts. All these measures reduced the state government’s expenditure on items like salary, pension and interest from 75 per cent of total expenditure to around 60 per cent. However, as he was seen as a potential threat by party boss Sharad Pawar’s nephew and former deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar, after the 2009 elections, he was shunted to a relatively low key ministry like rural development. After 2014, when the party finds itself in the Opposition again, he is the NCP’s leading speaker in the Assembly and regularly opens debates on behalf of his party and enthralls every one with his caustic sense of humour. As party president, he has his task cut out - he will have to revive the party ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha and Assembly elections especially in urban Maharashtra. The party is not in power in a single municipal corporation in the state. It has conceded control of municipal corporations like Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad and Ulhasnagar to BJP. It used to have a substantial presence in Thane and Mira-Bhayander too but that too is on the wane. Political analyst Prakash Akolkar said, “It is no doubt that Patil is an able administrator and a mature politician and his skills will be tested in this election season. However, by choosing him, Pawar has given a signal that the party primarily belongs to Western Maharashtra and Marathas.”

2018-04-25State cabinet clears freehold status for 31 Sindhi colonies - Times of India
State cabinet clears freehold status for 31 Sindhi colonies Apr 25, 2018, 06:35 IST MUMBAI: Thirty-one Sindhi colonies across Maharashtra, including Ulhasnagar, will become freehold land as a result of a small correction in land tenure approved by the state cabinet on Tuesday. The colonies, essentially plots given to refugees from West Pakistan in the wake of Partition, had been designated as ‘restricted tenure’ in the state. The change means residents will no longer need to obtain permission from the collector to carry out sale or to mortgage or even redevelop the property. Further, they will not be required to pay 50% of their earnings as unearned income to the government. Among the spots in Mumbai that will benefit are Chembur Colony, Wadia Trust Estate, Kurla, Thakkar Bapa Colony, Chembur, Sion Koliwada, Mulund Colony and Kopri Colony. “A similar decision was taken in the case of Sindhi colonies in Dhule in 2006 and Jalgaon in 2008. It is now being made applicable to other parts of the state,” said a revenue official. Sindhi colonies are also spread across Bhusaval, Pune, Yavatmal, Nagpur, Akola, Amravati and Kolhapur. The refugees were given land from the Compensation Pool Properties of the Central government based on their land holdings in Pakistan. While in the rest of India the land was given as freehold, in Maharashtra it was in the form of ‘restricted tenure.’ Over the years, some of the plots were encroached upon, and these too were regularised. Though given for a lifetime, the residents could not sell, transfer or redevelop the properties without the collector’s noobjection certificate. A senior revenue department official said Tuesday’s decision is applicable only to Compensation Pool Properties and to no other property. “The collector will suo motu carry out changes in the land records, and the tenure will be changed from Class II Occupants to Class I Occupants. The entire process should take a minimum of six months to be completed,” the official said. Ulhasnagar has the largest Sindhi settlement in the country with a population of four lakh. However, officials said it is still to be ascertained how many of the plots are from the compensation pool.

2018-04-25Maharashtra tops in air toxicity - The Hindu
Maharashtra tops in air toxicity Mumbai, April 25, 2018 00:00 IST Three towns in State cross dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide Air pollution in Maharashtra is a cause for concern, with three towns crossing dangerous Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) levels between 2011 and 2015. The towns are in the Thane district-Badlapur-Ulhasnagar and Pune belts. Seventeen of the State’s cities and towns exceeded Particulate Matter 10 (PM10) during the period. High levels of NO2 and PM10 determine air toxicity, with excess NO2 levels known to cause severe respiratory infections. The data was provided by Dr. Mahesh Sharma, Minister of State for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, in a reply to the Lok Sabha early this month. “Based on the air quality data generated during 2011-2015, the Central Pollution Control Board has identified 94 towns, for not meeting the prescribed standards,” he said. CPCB assessed sources of air pollution in urban areas in 2007-2010 for six cities: Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Kanpur, Mumbai and Pune. Said Dr. Sharma, “The study revealed that road dust and vehicles were the key sources of PM10 in urban areas. Biomass burning, diesel generators, construction activities, industrial activities etc. were identified as other important sources.” The World Health Organisation states that outdoor air pollution is a major environmental health problem and estimates that in 2012, nearly 72% of outdoor air pollution-related premature deaths were due to ischaemic heart disease and strokes; 14% of deaths were due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or acute lower respiratory infections, and 14% were due to lung cancer. Avick Sil, regional director of Environmental Policy Research Institute, said the high level of NO2 is mainly due to emissions from vehicles and industries. Towns like Badlapur and Ulhasnagar, he said, lack industrial checks. “Also, there are measures taken to control emissions from four-wheelers but heavy vehicles are largely ignored.” Particulates come mainly from construction activity and roadside dust, “but we have absolutely no environmental management in the construction sector,” he said. Lack of constant monitoring and reporting in the public domain is a major loophole in the system.” The State government has been in consultation with the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute to device a action plan for its cities to better the air quality. Dr. Rakesh Kumar, director of NEERI, told The Hindu , “Each city has different sources of pollutants and city-specific plans need to be prepared to tackle them. We are in the process of finalising our action plan.” Kolkata and Delhi reported high levels of NO2 along with PM10. Uttar Pradesh reported 15 of its cities and towns to have exceeded the PM10 level.

2018-04-25With 17 cities, Maharashtra tops states analysed for pollution data - Times of India
With 17 cities, Maharashtra tops states analysed for pollution data Apr 26, 2018, 03:49 IST Nagpur: The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has sounded the death knell to 94 cities in the country where pollution levels are not meeting the set standards. Topping the chart are Maharashtra with 17 cities and Uttar Pradesh with 15 cities. The board has pinned the blame on civic bodies for “not sharing responsibilities” to curb air pollution. “If civic bodies can provide clean water, why can’t they provide air,” CPCB questioned, while referring to the list of 94 cities and districts that was tabled in the Parliament earlier this month. Speaking exclusively to TOI, Dipankar Saha, additional director, head of Air Laboratory and Air Quality at CPCB analysed the data of cities which crossed dangerous PM10 and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels between 2011 and 2015. Based on the ambient air quality monitoring, the data of 22 ‘non-attainment’ states which have failed to meet the prescribed parameters was compiled by the board. “Any parameter which is not within the prescribed parameters for five consecutive years is referred to as non-attainment,” said Saha. The data reveals that NO2 levels were dangerously high in three districts in Maharashtra — Badlapur, Pune and Ulhasnagar. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), NO2 is a toxic gas which can lead to various respiratory ailments. In Vidarbha, Nagpur, Akola, Amravati and Chandrapur are the most polluting cities. The board has blamed encroachments and haphazard parking for high NO2 emissions in urban areas. “Slower the traffic, higher the unburnt emissions, especially NO2 from vehicles. Local authorities are responsible for safeguarding environment and should ensure free movement of traffic to avoid toxic emissions,” said Saha. According to CPCB, unscientific disposal of solid waste has led to major air pollution in almost all 94 cities. “It is ridiculous that burning of solid waste has become a huge source of air pollution in almost all the cities. Local bodies, which are responsible for waste management, are allowing it to burn,” said Saha. Out of the 94, there is not a single city which meets the standards for PM10. “Construction activities without mitigation measures and open burning are responsible for increasing PM10 levels. No measures are being taken to control the dust generated from construction,” said Saha. Based on this list, the board is preparing an action plan, added Saha. Recently, the environment ministry had released a draft of the National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) which is estimated to cost Rs 637 crore. According to environmentalists, tacking air pollution should not just be restricted to urban areas. “Vehicular emissions, solid waste burning and other urban activities leading to air pollution needs to be controlled. But the board needs to go beyond city boundaries and the NCAP should focus on the big polluters which include industrial clusters and thermal power plants,” said Sunil Dahiya, clean air campaigner at Greenpeace India. He added that the NCAP should give time-bound targets to industries for installing less-polluting technologies. On April 10, Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor wrote to Union environment minister Harsh Vardhan stating that NCAP should have a detailed plan on reducing polluting levels in different sectors. “While the concept note provides solutions to reduce vehicular emissions, it unfortunately misses out on doing the same for the industrial sector,” he stated.

2018-04-24Unidentified leopards lead to camera study in Mumbai - Daily News & Analysis
Unidentified leopards lead to camera study in Mumbai Updated: Apr 24, 2018, 06:25 AM IST The mystery over the identity of two leopards, which strayed far off from the forest fringes into Mulund and Ulhasnagar this year, has now led the Thane territorial forest to initiate a first extensive camera trapping exercise for studying and identifying leopards outside the protected areas of Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP). As per a latest study carried out in 2017 there are 41 leopards inside SGNP. Dr Jitendra Ramgaonkar, Deputy Conservator of Forest (DCF) in Thane said that the two leopards could not be identified despite having a database of 97 leopard images which were camera trapped during the several studies at SGNP. "It indicates that there might be leopards living in forested or abandoned patches outside protected areas and some which keep moving out of SGNP and were never camera trapped. These factors essentially made us embark on this study to develop a better database and understanding of leopards," he said, adding that the study is being done along with independent researchers and wildlife enthusiasts who have been working in collaboration with the department. Camera trapping will be carried out in areas like Ghodbunder Road, Aarey, Mulund, Bhandup, Ulhasnagar as well as Murbad where frequent leopards sightings are reported and already 25 camera traps have been deployed for the study. Nitesh Pancholi of TRACK who will be helping with camera trapping said, "This study will also help in better management of human-leopard conflict as the forest staff will also get a better understanding of different locations where leopard are commonly spotted that will help planning mitigation measures."

2018-04-24Mumbai: Forest Department to shoot more leopards on camera - Mid-Day
Mumbai: Forest Department to shoot more leopards on camera Apr 24, 2018, 10:30 IST In a bid to explain how the big cats reach heavily populated areas in the city, officials have started a camera trapping exercise on the eastern and western peripheries of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, like the ongoing study at Aarey Colony Following the success of leopard monitoring at Aarey Milk Colony, the Thane Forest (Territorial) department are starting a similar study on the eastern and western peripheries of the SGNP as well. Thanks to the continues monitoring of leopard activity at Aarey, the Forest Department was able to capture a leopard responsible for man-animal conflict last year. The areas where the camera trapping study will be conducted include the Mulund-Bhandup-Thane belt (eastern periphery), Thane-Ghodbunder Road, Dahisar-Kandivli, and Malad (western periphery). Inching closer to the city The Thane Forest Department (Territorial) wants to keep a tab on the activity of leopards outside protected areas, so it has decided to conduct an intensive camera trapping exercise in various territorial divisions, including Shahpur, Dahanu, Jawhar and Alibaug. "There have been at least three instances when we rescued leopards from highly populated areas such as Andheri, Ulhasnagar and Mulund. Everyone was surprised by this, because no one knows how the leopard reached these places. A camera trapping exercise outside protected areas, in the jurisdiction of the territorial wings, will give us crucial insight into the behaviour of the elusive big cat. The data generated via the study will play an important role during man-animal conflict incident, as we will be in a position to zero down on any animal suspected," said Nitesh Pancholi, president of Trust for Rescue, Afforestation, Conservation & Knowledge (TRACK). Monitoring begins Using a total of nine flash camera traps and three infrared camera traps provided by Dr Jitendra Ramgaonkar, deputy conservator of forest, the monitoring has begun on the eastern periphery by Santosh Kank, range forest officer of Mumbai range, along with Pancholi and his team of volunteers. They are monitoring leopard activity around Mulund, Bhandup and Thane-Ghodbunder Road. Mayur Kamath, honorary wildlife warden (HWW) of Mumbai suburbs; Sunish Subramanaian Kunju, HWW of Mumbai city and Pawan Sharma, HWW of Thane will also take part in the camera trapping exercise, so that all areas are covered. Big cats in the big city >> March 2018: A leopard was rescued from the densely populated town of Ulhasnagar, far away from the forested patch. >> January 2018: A leopard had reached Nane Pada area in Mulund East, which is around 4 km away from the forested patch. >> December 2017: A sub-adult female leopard entered a kindergarten classroom at Sher-E-Punjab Cooperative Housing Society in Andheri. 12 Total no. of camera traps

2018-04-24Sindhi community hopes freehold tag will improve its lot - Times of India
Sindhi community hopes freehold tag will improve its lot Apr 24, 2018, 22:21 IST MUMBAI: Thousands of ordinary Sindhis who live in community colonies in Mumbai are hoping that the government's decision to declare their land as freehold will improve their quality of life or hasten redevelopment. The complexes were built in the 1970s after land was allotted to immigrants who arrived from Pakistan having lost all their wealth and lands overnight. The Thadomal Shahani Trust owns the vast Shahani Colony in Mulund as well as Chembur's Sindhi Colony. Trustee Maya Shahani said, "The government's decision is good news, certainly. It is not as if repair work or redevelopment was hampered earlier. In fact we are being approached by builders to develop Shahani Colony. But the transfer of land to freehold status will increase the value of the land, that is my assessment as a layperson." There are approximately 250 flats in Shahani Colony housing 1,000 residents while another 60 flats with 240 people are located in Chembur's Sindhi Colony. An old time resident of Shahani Colony said that affluent Sindhi families moved to bigger apartments decades ago. "We are here since 1975. The homes here range from 200 sq ft to 530 q ft. They are not in good shape but whenever repairs are needed, we pay half the amount and the Shahani Trust pays the other half," he said. Another housing colony in Chembur belongs to the Sindhi Immigrant Housing Society. Secretary Sunder Vazirani said Tuesday's notification did not apply to them "since they had already converted the land to freehold status after paying the requisite fee to the Collector way back in 1948". "There are 160 plots. Of these old bungalows were replaced by buildings once their elderly owners sold and left to be with their NRI children. This is perhaps the costliest piece of real estate in Chembur now," said fruit merchant Shrichand Bajaj. Residents and shopkeepers of this colony say they are still tied to the old pugree system. They wish the government's notification could improve their lives. "Several homeowners and shopowners like me were duped in 1982. We paid money for society share certificates but these certificates were later taken back from us and we found we had been declared tenants on our own property," said an elderly shopkeeper. "Even now every NOC for transfer or sale is given by the trust. One builder whom we chose for redevelopment of our society is also facing roadblocks." The advantage is that each of these settlements has spawned a unique ecosystem where the Sindhi language, cuisine and small business continue to flourish. Kalyan-Ulhasnagar have established a cottage industry of Sindhi sweetmeats and savouries. Local shops do brisk business of course, but apart from that, enterprising housewives who may have only completed basic education source specialties like papad, wadi, kheecha, kachri, as well as til laddoo and gear at Sankranti and Holi, and travel to localities like Khar, Bandra, Andheri, Kandivli and Borivli to serve the dispersed Sindhis there.

Dead man comes to bank to withdraw cash Filed on April 22, 2018 | Last updated on April 22, 2018 at 06.40 pm Kamble had been admitted hospitalised two months ago after he suffered a paralytic attack last December. Grief-stricken parents in India recently took their dead son's body to a Punjab National Bank (PNB) branch in Ulhasnagar in Maharashtra as a sign of protest for not giving them money from his account. Angry family members of Ganesh Kamble barged into the bank on Thursday and showed the bank officials his dead body to prove that he had been seriously ill and in need of money for his treatment. Kamble had been admitted in KEM Hospital two months ago after he suffered a paralytic attack last December. His parents had been repeatedly requesting the bank to hand over them the Rs25,000 in Kamble's account for his treatment. But the bank officials refused to give them access to their son's account and stated that as Kamble's was an individual account they cannot let anyone access it as per the bank rules. The family members pleaded with the bank several times and also showed them Kamble's picture of him lying paralysed in KEM Hospital. That's when the bank officials said that they would come to the hospital to verify and take his signature to withdraw money. Kamble's sister Mahananda Yadav was quoted as saying in Mid-Day, "Every few days they had to go to the bank requesting that my brother's money be signed over to them. But officials kept saying that his signature was needed. He was lying unconscious on a hospital bed! How did they imagine we could have got his sign?" Yadav added, "We had taken a loan from relatives to buy medicines for him. Last week, when my father went to the bank again, officials said they would come to the hospital. But they didn't and my brother died." Defending why the money was not handed over to Kamble's parents, Ulhasnagar PNB official Somnath Sarode, said, "We can't give money to anyone other than the account holder. On humanitarian grounds, we told them that we would come to visit the person, but he died that day. After his death, we brought out the list of nominees and handed over the money to his family."

Mumbai: When a dead man came to PNB to withdraw his money Apr 21, 2018, 07:28 IST Family storms Ulhasnagar branch with corpse of son, for whose treatment bank officials had refused to hand over money from his own account, citing rules Angry family members of an Ulhasnagar man barged into the Ulhasnagar branch of Punjab National Bank on Thursday with his dead body, as a sign of protest against bank officials for not giving them access to the deceased's account. The family members had been pleading with the bank to let them withdraw from his account, saying he was lying paralysed in KEM Hospital and they needed the money for his treatment. The bank had refused on the ground that the man in question being the sole holder of the account, as per rules, his signature and presence were needed to get the money. From pillar to post The account holder, Ganesh Kamble, had been admitted in KEM Hospital two months ago after suffering a paralytic attack last December. Since then, his parents had been making repeated rounds of the bank, requesting officials to give them the Rs 25,000 in Kamble's account as he had been rendered immobile and they needed money for his treatment. Bank officials, however, cited rules, saying Kamble's being an individual account, he alone could rightfully access it. Kamble's sister Mahananda Yadav said, "My parents were travelling all the way to KEM Hospital every day for my brother. Amid all this, every few days they had to go to the bank as well, requesting that his money be signed over to them. But officials kept saying that his signature was needed. He was lying unconscious on a hospital bed! How did they imagine we could have got his sign? "We clicked my brother's photo, of him lying on the hospital bed, and showed it to bank officials, after which they said they would have to come to the hospital to get his signature. Whatever it is that they wanted to do, they should have done it fast. Why did they take so much time for all this?" Yadav added, "We had taken a loan from relatives to buy medicines for him. Last week, when my father went to the bank again, officials said they would come to the hospital. But they didn't and my brother died. That's why we took his body there, to show them that had they given us the money on time, we could have done something for my brother." Too little, too late An Ulhasnagar PNB official, Somnath Sarode, said, "We can't give money to anyone other than the account holder. On humanitarian grounds, we told them that we would come to visit the person, but he died that day. After his death, we brought out the list of nominees and handed over the money to his family."

2018-04-21New business hubs emerging in Oshiwara, Kalyan, Bhiwandi, Thane - Hindustan Times
New business hubs emerging in Oshiwara, Kalyan, Bhiwandi, Thane Updated: Apr 21, 2018 20:05 IST A city’s financial district is where its economic pulse lies. Its exact location, however, tends to be dynamic and in flux, often oscillating between the heart of a city and its outskirts. Over the past few decades, Mumbai’s traditional business districts of Nariman Point and Worli have found newer siblings in Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) and Lower Parel. Now, even that is changing. As these areas reach saturation point, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis recently granted permission for the 122-hectare Wadala Truck Terminal to be developed as Mumbai’s third official CBD (Central Business District), after Nariman Point and BKC. In the regional plan, are three SBDs (Secondary Business Districts) — Kharbao in Bhiwandi, Nilaje in Kalyan and Shedung in Panvel. These new development will multiply job opportunities in regions around Vasai-Virar, Mira-Bhayander, Thane and Bhiwandi. The long road home Mumbai remains one of the most expensive residential realty markets in India, with an estimated 29% of the city’s under-construction units costing more the Rs 1 crore per flat, according to a recent report by realty consultancy Knight Frank. As the city’s young, white-collar population moves to the fringe suburbs of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, including areas in Navi Mumbai and Thane, some of their employers are moving too. “Unlike the generation prior, the millennial isn’t keen to spend a few hours of his workday in a commute, urging realty developers to plan markets closer to where the labour force is,” says Shrikant Joshi, CEO of L&T Realty. L&T is tapping into the growing reluctance to commute with Seawoods Grand Central, a transit-oriented business park where Navi Mumbai’s Seawoods railway station occupies one level. “Seawoods Grand Central one of the few transit-oriented developments in India,” says Shrikant Joshi, CEO of L&T Realty. “The design and development are in keeping with the concept of a smart city, where everything from infrastructure to mobility and urban development are viewed and planned as interconnected aspects. This commercial project leverages rail and arterial road connectivity.” Around the world, there are vast examples that we are still aspiring to, such as Canary Wharf in London, IFC Hong Kong, Shinjuku Tokyo and Mockingbird Station in Dallas. These too had replaced older and more traditional business districts no longer able to meet the growing demands for space. “All of Mumbai’s historic commercial centres have become outmoded as demand grows and populations shift. There is no scope for redevelopment either. Most were in Mumbai’s southern areas, where a far smaller share of the population now lives,” says Ashutosh Limaye, head of research at JLL India. “The ones now finding favour are new and evolving commercial hubs such as Powai and Vikhroli, and planned business zones like Belapur.” BKC junior? “An analysis of Mumbai’s growth pattern over the last few decades shows that the city has been expanding without adequate investment in the development of trunk infrastructure such as access roads, public transport, solid waste management, recreational space, and adequate water supply. Trunk infrastructure has usually been added haphazardly as an afterthought in an ad hoc way,” states a JLL study published on the emergence of Oshiwara as Mumbai’s newest district centre. The Oshiwara District Centre (ODC) is being touted as the next BKC. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority is looking to capitalise on the new railway station nearby, Ram Mandir, and upcoming Metro routes that will connect Oshiwara to Seepz, Bandra, Colaba, Dahisar and Mankhurd by 2019. Six 90-ft roads are planned within the ODC for easy flow of traffic. Further afield, in Thane district, green buildings make up K Raheja Corp’s Mindspace in Airoli East. Here, office space comes with LEED certification, electrical car charging stations, low-flow faucets and fixtures, organic gardens and waste management facilities. In Ambernath, the renowned architect Hafeez Contractor’s GNP Galaxy is a commercial and manufacturing hub with two sister projects, GNP Galleria and GNP Arcadia, simultaneously being developed in Dombivili. All three parks are estimated to be complete by January 2021. “Our GNP Galaxy site is on the border of Ambernath and Ulhasnagar. While Ambernath has an MIDC, Ulhasnagar is full of illegal constructions. The nearest white-collar commercial hubs were in Kalyan, 12 km away. We zoned in the need for a full-fledged business park that would engage the local population.” says Rohit Dixit, sales director at GNP Group. What next? Does this mean Nariman Point and BKC will be dethroned by the new spaces? Not anytime soon, says Vikas Oberoi, CMD of Oberoi Realty. “With India rising on global investment charts and Mumbai being positioned as an international financial centre, there is enough opportunity for commercial hubs across Mumbai and its suburbs to thrive and coexist,” Oberoi adds. “BKC was the first business district to be set up outside the island city, and with its superior planning of office spaces, will continue to be one of the topmost business districts in the state. We believe there is opportunity for every business district to thrive.” The shift goes hand in hand with the migration of residential projects to suburbs and fringes of MMR. “There is in fact still a need for more CBDs within MMR,” says Kamal Khetan, CMD of Sunteck Realty. “The new airport in Navi Mumbai could in fact drive demand in a whole new cluster.” The Raheja District II business park in Juinagar, in fact, is already looking to capitalise on the proposed Navi Mumbai Airport Influence Notified Area, or NAINA. There is a plan for a parallel World Trade Centre-like outfit here. And a helpdesk to guide businesses through Customs, tax procedures, government incentive programmes and issues. “Navi Mumbai is set to be the next commercial centre for this region, and it will have better facilities, connectivity, affordability and social infrastructure. It will set the market on a new trajectory,” says Ashish Raheja, MD of Raheja Universal. “NAINA will increase the boundaries of Navi Mumbai, leading to increased opportunity as real-estate is built to meet the growing needs of a diverse range of businesses.”

2018-04-20Exclusive: Idea Cellular's VoLTE Services Will Go Official for Public in Maharashtra and Gujarat First - TelecomTalk (blog)
Exclusive: Idea Cellular’s VoLTE Services Will Go Official for Public in Maharashtra and Gujarat First Idea Cellular is the only top telecom operator yet to launch Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services based on 4G network to the consumers. While the company stated that it would be launching VoLTE services to its users in Q2 2018, there’s no official word on the same. Right now, the telco has opened the VoLTE services to its employees in various cities, but as per the information we received, Idea Cellular subscribers in Maharashtra and Gujarat will be able to see the VoLTE service on a compatible smartphone very soon. The service will be first rolled out in 18 cities including Nasik, Pune, Nagpur, Goa(Panjim), Aurangabad, Kolapur, Vasai, Virar, Ulhasnagar, Bhivandi, Ahmednagar, Solapur, Akola, Nanded, Surat, Rajkot, Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar. Idea will be expanding the service to other circles and cities in a phased manner going forward. The biggest challenge for Idea Cellular will be the compatible device list. Bharti Airtel and Vodafone India launched 4G services several months ago, but still, the supported device list is very smaller. Airtel’s list of VoLTE compatible smartphones has more than 100 devices, while Vodafone has over 50 devices. And yes, speaking about Reliance Jio, whatever the smartphone releases onto the market, it has support for Jio VoLTE. However, Idea Cellular has to follow the same mechanism as Airtel and Vodafone of adding service manually to a smartphone, which will be a cumbersome process. As per the information we have at the moment, when the Idea VoLTE service goes official in the above-mentioned cities, the supported device list will include the following brands: Apple, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Motorola, Vivo, Lenovo and Huawei. However, we’re not sure about the devices though. It’s a surprise to see Motorola on the list because the brand is yet to release an OTA update for its smartphones with support for Airtel VoLTE and Vodafone VoLTE. In the case of OnePlus, the upcoming OnePlus 6 will support Idea VoLTE service out of the box. Furthermore, Idea is calling its VoLTE service as ‘Idea VoLTE‘, and there’s nothing fancy name attached to it. Vodafone has named its VoLTE service as ‘Super VoLTE,’ but Idea is going with a more conventional name for its service. Furthermore, we have learnt that Idea Cellular will be offering 4G services on its network only and not on Intra-circle Roaming agreement (ICR). The telco is currently offering 4G services in 20 circles, and all the 20 circles will get Idea VoLTE service in a phased manner. As of now, Idea VoLTE support has been rolled out to various Honor devices such as Honor 6X, Honor 9i and so on. We might hear an official confirmation from the company very soon, which we’re not sure on when it’s going to happen. Once the service rolls out to the public, the service will be auto-activated for all eligible Idea subscribers on a compatible handset.

2018-04-20Starting off with Rs 7 lakh, this startup has generated Rs 10 Cr in three years: the story of CellBell - YourStory.com
Starting off with Rs 7 lakh, this startup has generated Rs 10 Cr in three years: the story of CellBell posted on 20th April 2018 Ulhasnagar-based CellBell has established itself across ecommerce marketplaces in three years. tartup: CellBell Founders: Chirag Demla and Pawan Demla Year of launch: 2015 Location: Ulhasnagar Sector: Mobile accessories Problem it solves: Affordable alternatives for mobile accessories with guaranteed customer service Funding: Bootstrapped India, being a growing economy, has a market for any item in various price segments. If there is a HeliTaxi service, there is also an autorickshaw; if there is a DLF Emporium, there is also a Sarojini market. Similarly, for every Phillips or JBL earphone, there is a bunch of more affordable choices now. In the mobile accessories category, CellBell brand from a small town outside Mumbai is making a mark already. From childhood, Ulhasnagar-based Chirag Demla (23) and Pawan Demla (28) were exposed to the local business community, as their father ran a local transport network. As time passed, Pawan became an IT engineer and Chirag, a finance graduate. But entrepreneurship was always in their destiny. In 2014, the two brothers were also selling bags as a part-time business. Also, Chirag had started a Instagram handle (cell_bell) as a hobby, to offer one-day delivery of premium mobile accessories of various brands to local town audience. Within two months, he had made Rs.40,000 as gross margin, which strengthened his confidence in the mobile accessories domain. In early 2015, with an investment of Rs 7 lakh, they built an ecommerce platform for their mobile accessories - Selfie sticks, headphones, cables, screen glass, and covers, selling them on Snapdeal. Their price range: Rs 200-1499. By the first week, they shipped more than 110 orders. “To build a sustainable business and provide value to the customer, we needed to rethink our cash flows, catalogue and sales channels. By March 2015, we reduced our catalogue to only three categories: Selfie stick, Screen Tempered Glass and Transparent Cases, and started selling on Amazon also,” says Pawan. Within two months, they were getting more than 250 orders monthly with just 10 percent returns. (Industry average on e-commerce returns is 25 percent.) By closing down all other categories and specialising in screen tempered glasses for all latest mobile launches and iPhones until 2016 end, they grew at 20 percent monthly. Today, CellBell sells phone cases and covers, chargers, cables, and photo frames. Their numbers are impressive to say the least: GMV: Rs10.6 crore Average Rs 275 order value, with two items in basket 500 orders daily The success story Recently, CellBell was selected by Amazon as a ‘strategic account’ due to its consistent sales performance, and was the single brand account to achieve sales target of over Rs12 crore in 2018. Pawan adds that currently CellBell serves around 20,000 units a month on Amazon India alone. “We increased from our first month sales of Rs 5 lakh to Rs 60 lakh per month in the last three years over Amazon,” says Pawan. CellBell is also available on Cellbell.in, Flipkart, Paytm, and Snapdeal as well as local retail stores. CellBell has a team of 15 across customer support, operations, purchasing, design, marketing, technology, production and accounts. “We have got 5-10 percent margin in each product since day one in the business. We reinvest the profit from each month into expanding the product portfolio and catering to increasing orders,” Pawan tells However, he adds that CellBell is too far from the likes of Canon. “We don't see other rising brands in accessories as competition, as the scope of customer-caring brand is still under-served in India. We get inspiration from competing brands like Boat, Mivi, Unistuff, Amazon Basics, Amfilm, Flipkart Smartbuy etc. though.”. The small town startup Being based out a small town is hard for any startup. For instance, Ulhasnagar does not have a specific startup group (like Headstart) or investors to contribute for capital. Pawan says that whenever someone needs financing, they have to arrange it themselves via personal loans, family connections, etc. “We don't have large spaces for big trucks. Some marketplaces don't have our pin codes as their pickup locations, which limits our catalogue on those marketplaces,” he elaborates. Also, although Ulhasnagar is a town merely 13km in diameter, it has three railway stations, and all reputed courier companies have business offices there. Most importantly, it is near the Bhiwandi warehouses from where all marketplaces ship their products to the whole country. Pawan adds, “Due to our connections, overnight we get our supplies from Gujarat, Mumbai, and China. Whatever we require - like packaging, transportation, and supplies – can be arranged within a week with limited cash, because we are connected to various vendors via family connections. People won't default on their commitments for supplies due to relations.” Incorporating customer feedback For CellBell, the most important metrics include customer repeat rate, sales and revenue growth, and product feedback. Pawan explains, “When we started in 2015, customers were complaining about damaged deliveries (from other sellers too.). So we developed rigorous breakage tests and colour fading experiments on our glass and covers, by providing extra foam padding inside small packs and sending them in 5-play strong boxes by working with Amazon FC directly. We also provide installation kits.” CellBell provides centralised customer service for customers of marketplaces as well as their own site. They offer one-month money-back guarantee and 12 months warranty support too. Additionally, CellBell provides 24 months low-cost warranty, which offered 50 percent discount coupon for CellBell product purchased on any sales channel. “It resulted into increased traffic and orders on our site. Currently, that scheme has been more improvised by giving 100 percent refunds on any sales channel (even for marketplace orders) under a 12-month warranty support scheme,” says Pawan. CellBell will soon launching premium products such as car chargers, Qualcomm superfast chargers, trendy data cables, bluetooth speakers, rugged premium cases, and 5D strong tempered glasses. “In 2018, we will build repetitive brand visibility via customer referral schemes. In 2019, we may push for offline resellers contest to gain faster leads for offline sales,” Pawan concludes.

उल्हासनगरच्या सत्तावाटपासाठी भाजपाची शिवसेना नेत्यांशी बोलणी सुरू Published: April 20, 2018 01:26 AM | Updated: April 20, 2018 01:26 AM उल्हासनगर : सत्तेतील सहभागासाठी शिवसेनेसोबत वाटाघाटी सुरू असून आठवडाभरात अंतिम निर्णय होईल, असे सांगत भाजपाचे जिल्हाध्यक्ष कुमार आयलानी यांनी गुरूवारी युती होणार असल्याचे मान्य केले. शिवसेनेच्या नेत्यांनीही भाजपासोबत बोलणी सुरू असल्याच्या वृत्ताला दुजोरा दिला. उल्हासनगरात सत्तापालट होणार असल्याच्या आशयाचे वृत्त गुरूवारी लोकमतने प्रसिद्ध करताच राजकीय क्षेत्रात एकच खळबळ उडाली. सवार्धिक गोंधळ उडाला तो ओमी कलानी यांच्या टीममध्ये. त्यांच्या राजकारणाचा पायाच या वृत्तामुळे डळमळीत झाला. त्यामुळे सत्तेत असताना भांड्याला भांडे लागायचेच असे सांगत त्यांनी सावध पवित्रा घेतला. साई पक्षातही या वृत्तामुळे एकदम सन्नाटा पसरला. यापुढे आपल्या दबावाच्या राजकारणाला खीळ बसल्याची जाणीव त्यांना झाली. शिवसेनेसोबत असलेल्या छोट्या पक्षांच्या आकाक्षांना मात्र या बातमीनंतर पालवी फुटली असून आपल्यालाही सत्तेचे लाभ मिळतील, अशी आशा त्यांना वाटू लागली आहे. उल्हासनगर महापालिकेवर सध्या जरी भाजपा, ओमी टीम आणि साई पक्षाची सत्ता असली, तरी भाजपातील एक गट आणि ओमी टीममधून विस्तव जात नव्हता. त्याचा फायदा साई पक्षाने उठवला. त्यातून ओमी टीमला सत्तेतील वाट्यापासून बाजूला ठेवल्याने असंतोष वाढत गेला. त्यातच विधानसबा निवडणूक लढवण्याचे कलानी कुटुंबाने जाहीर केल्याने आयलानी विरूद्ध कलानी शक्तिप्रदर्शनाला सुरूवात झाली. त्यामुळे भाजपा आणि ओमी कलानी एकत्र नांदणार नाहीत, हे स्पष्ट झाले. त्यातच पोटनिवडणूक हरल्याने, महासभेत पाणीप्रश्नी मांडलेल्या लक्षवेधीतून ही दरी वाढत गेली. भावी महापौर मानल्या जाणाऱ्या पंचम ओमी कलानी यांची लक्षवेधी विद्यमान महापौर मीना कुमार आयलानी यांनी फेटाळल्याने भाजपा, ओमी टीमच्या नगरसेवकांत सोशल मीडियावर बाचाबाची सुरू झाली. त्यात आमदार ज्योती कलानी यांनीही उडी घेतल्याने भाजपा-ओमी कलानी यांच्यात बिनसले. त्यामुळे शिवसेनेला सोबत घेत भाजपाने या संकटातून आपली सुटका करून घेण्याची पावले उचलली आहेत. वाटाघाटी अंतिम होताच उल्हासनगरात सत्तापालट होईल. आठवडाभरात निर्णय - आयलानी भाजपा आणि ओमी टीममध्ये धुसफुस सुरू असून पंचम कलानी यांच्या लक्षवेधीमुळे दोन्ही पक्षाचे वाद चव्हाटयावर येताच त्याची माहिती शहर कमिटीने वरिष्ठ नेत्यांना दिली. आठवडाभरात त्यावर वरिष्ठ नेते निर्णय घेतील, असे कुमार आयलानी यांनी स्पष्ट केले. ‘भाजपा-ओमी टीम एकत्र राहतील’ एका घरात संसार करताना भांड्याला भांडे लागणारच. मात्र त्यांचा अर्थ असा होत नाही, भाजपासोबतची आमची सत्ता जाईल. भाजपा आणि ओमी टीम सत्तेची पाच वर्षे पूर्ण करतील. यातून नक्की काहीतरी मार्ग निघेल, असा विश्वास ओमी टीमचे वरिष्ठ नगरसेवक राजेश वधारिया यांनी व्यक्त केला. हो, चर्चा सुरू आहे! भाजपाच्या वरिष्ठ आणि स्थानिक नेत्यांनी महापालिकेतील सत्तेसाठी शिवसेनेकडे मैत्रीचा हात पुढे केला आहे. त्याची कुणकुण आम्हाला लागली आहे. चर्चा सुरू आहे, अशी प्रतिक्रिया शहरप्रमुख राजेंद्र चौधरी आणि विरोधी पक्षनेता धनंजय बोडारे यांनी दिली. भाजपातून ओमी गट फुटण्याची चिन्हे महापालिका निवडणुकीपूर्वी राष्ट्रवादी काँग्रेसमध्ये असताना ओमी कलानी यांनी प्रत्येक प्रभागनिहाय टीमची बांधणी केली आणि कामांना सुरूवात केली. त्यामुळे त्यांनी राष्ट्रवादी काँग्रेस सोडू नये, असे प्रयत्न त्या पक्षाच्या नेत्यांनी केले. त्यानंतरही ओमी यांनी पक्षांतर केले. ते भाजपात आले, पण भाजपाच्या चिन्हावर लढण्याचा त्यांचा निर्णय चुकला. त्या निर्णयाने त्यांची वाटाघाटींची क्षमताच संपली. भाजपातील त्यांचे विरोेधक आणि साई पक्षाने त्यांचे राजकीय महत्त्वच संपवून टाकले. सध्या ज्योती कलानी राष्ट्रवादीच्या आमदार असल्या, तरी त्यांच्याऐवजी ओमी यांनी विधानसभेवर जावे, असे कुटुंबाचे प्रयत्न सुरू आहेत. त्यामुळे भाजपातील आपल्या नगरसेवकांसह फुटून बाहेर पडण्याचा पर्याय त्यांच्यापुढे आहे. त्यानंतर ते पुन्हा राष्ट्रवादीत जातील आणि तेथून विधानसभेची उमेदवारी मिळवतील, असा अंदाज व्यक्त केला जात आहे.

2018-04-10Bombay high court: Police need guidelines on handling rescued pregnant minors - Hindustan Times
Bombay high court: Police need guidelines on handling rescued pregnant minors The court made the comment when it was hearing a petition filed by a 14-year-old rape survivor seeking permission to terminate her 24-week-long pregnancy MUMBAI Updated: Apr 10, 2018 11:40 IST The Bombay high court on Monday expressed the need for guidelines instructing police as to what they should do on rescuing pregnant minor girls. “There must be some instructions to the police as to what they should do, if they rescue some minor girl and her medical examination reveals she is pregnant,” said the bench of justice Naresh Patil and justice Anuja Prabhudessai. It was hearing a petition filed by a 14-year-old rape survivor from Kalyan seeking permission to terminate her 24-week-long pregnancy. The high court made the comment after advocate Deepa Chavan, appointed as amicus curiae, pointed out that precious time was lost in the case of the minor, who was rescued from Janpur in Uttar Pradesh and brought back to Kalyan on March 17, 2018. On the same day the girl was medically examined at Central Hospital in Ulhasnagar and found to be pregnant, but the police did not convey the fact to anyone — not even her family members. “Nobody appears to be aware of the existence of the Medical Termination of the Pregnancy (MTP) Act, 1971 and the 20-week embargo on termination of pregnancies,” Chavan said, urging the court to direct the state government to issue appropriate instructions to all police stations. “It was only after some workers of NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan came to know about the unwanted pregnancy that things started moving, but by then precious time was already lost,” she added. The judges agreed with the necessity of having proper instructions in place, as they noticed the loss of time after March 17 resulted in advancement of the pregnancy and thus increased risk to the life of the 14-year-old in terminating her pregnancy. “Precious lives can be saved by saving time in taking appropriate decisions in such cases, if police were appropriately instructed as to what they should do if they happen to rescue a pregnant minor,” said the bench. The court has now directed an assistant government pleader to take instructions in a week as to whether any instructions have been issued by any department as regards pregnant minors. It said it will itself frame appropriate guidelines for the police to follow in such cases and the state government has not issued any instructions to the police. The court also permitted the 14-year-old to get her unwanted pregnancy medically terminated at JJ hospital in Mumbai, after noticing that a medical board of the state-run hospital has recommended termination of pregnancy, as its continuation would pose risk to the life of the minor. According to the FIR lodged with Hill Line police station at Ulhasnagar, in July 2017, the girl was enticed away by a young labourer, also residing at Kalyan. Police succeeded in tracing the minor to Janpur on March 15 and two days later brought her back to Uhasnagar. Charges of rape were added to the kidnapping case, after the girl was found pregnant by doctors.

Bombay High Court allows termination of 24-week pregnancy for 13-year-old who was raped The medical board of JJ Hospital had said that the pregnancy would endanger her life. The Bombay High Court on Monday allowed a 13-year-old girl to terminate the 24-week foetus, PTI reported. The minor got pregnant after a man raped her last year. The court directed her to go to a state-run hospital in the city for the procedure after the JJ Hospital’s medical board said that the pregnancy would endanger her life. The bench also asked the Maharashtra government to provide any guidelines on handling cases of this nature, if any existed. A 23-year-old man had kidnapped the girl in July 2017 from her house in Thane district’s Ulhasnagar town. The police traced the girl and the accused in Uttar Pradesh. The man was arrested and the girl was brought back home on March 17. The High Court passed the order while hearing a petition filed by her father. The pregnancy had crossed the 20-week gestation period, which is considered legally permissible according to the Medical Termination of Pregnancies Act. Last week, the High Court had asked JJ Hospital’s medical board to examine the girl and submit the report. Justice NH Patil said the pregnancy could have been terminated within the permissible time limit if the police had reported it. “In the present case, the victim was taken for medical examination on March 17 this year and the police came to know that she was pregnant,” Patil said. “The police should be sensitised. When such cases are filed, the police should inform the victim, her parents or family about the options they have regarding termination of pregnancy.” The court ruled that in case there were no guidelines on how to handle such cases, it would order the state government to issue them.

Man booked on wife’s sex tape complaint Published : Apr 9, 2018, 1:30 am IST, Updated : Apr 9, 2018, 1:31 am IST According to the police, the complainant married Rijwani (24) in April 2017 and relocated to Pune from Ulhasnagar. Mumbai: A 23-year-old woman registered a complaint against her husband at the Ulhasnagar police station for allegedly making a video of their intimate moments and then threatening to upload it on social networking sites and their families’ social media groups if she did not arrange for money from her parents. The husband, Kaushal Rijwani, allegedly blackmailed her on several occasions and extorted cash from her ranging from Rs 10,000 to Rs 2 lakh. According to the complainant, Rijwani has been sexually harassing her and forcing her to perform unnatural sexual acts ever since they got married a year ago. The complaint was registered on Friday. After a primary investigation, the case was transferred to the Pune police as the incident took place in their jurisdiction, said police sources. According to the police, the complainant married Rijwani (24) in April 2017 and relocated to Pune from Ulhasnagar. Just 15 days after the wedding, he shot a video of them while consummating their marriage and also clicked a few pictures, they said. When the woman objected, Rijwani promised to delete the multimedia content. However after a few days, he allegedly started beating her, and threatened to leak the pictures and videos on social networking websites. A month later, Rijwani allegedly started forcing himself on her, again with the threat of disclosing the videos in public. In return for keeping the videos private, he started demanding money from her parents, they said. When he made the demand for Rs 2 lakh, the woman asked him why he needed so much money to which he allegedly replied by striking her. She also caught Rijwani allegedly getting intimate with his sister in the same house. When she tried to leave the house, he again threatened to leak the intimate photos and videos. Due to her parents’ poor financial condition, the complainant was unable to fulfil the Rijwani’s demands. Finally, a fortnight ago, the complainant fled from her in-laws’ house in Pune and returned to her parents’ home in Ulhasnagar. After discussing the matter with her family, she approached the Ulhasnagar police to register a complaint. Police inspector H. Kale, investigating officer of the case said, “We have transferred the case to Pune police.” Inspector Kale further added, “The woman said that some times her father-in-law used to touch her inappropriately. The details will be shared with the police and when it probes the matter further.” The accused has been booked under Indian Penal Code sections 377, 354(A), 406 and 506, which pertain to offences related to unnatural sex, sexual harassment, criminal breach of trust and criminal intimidation respectively.

2018-04-05Police nab duo with seize tiger skin, Forest Department says its fake - Mid-Day
Police nab duo with seize tiger skin, Forest Department says its fake Apr 05, 2018, 12:54 IST | Ranjeet Jadhav and Anamika Gharat Vitthalwadi police issue a press note about the seized item, while forest officials say it is not that of a tiger; the sample will be sent to a forensic lab for verificationThe police with the duo held for possession of the (below) skin If the police don't co-ordinate with the Forest Department to identify seized body parts including the skin of wild animals, there is a chance they may spread misinformation. On Monday, the Vitthalwadi police issued a press note, saying they had arrested two people with a tiger skin in their possession. However, the skin is believed to be of some other animal which was painted with stripes, to dupe the customer. The Forest Department will send the skin to a forensic lab for confirmation. Highly placed sources in the Thane Forest Department (Territorial) told mid-day that the skin that was seized from two people in Ulhasnagar does not appear to be original. "We are confident that it is not a tiger skin. I think the Forest Department should be consulted every time the police find something related to wildlife, because our people are in a better position to identify them," said an official from the Forest Department. There is a demand for tiger and leopard skin in the black market, as there are various myths attached to them, one being that it brings good luck. People have sold duplicate skins and have earned huge amounts of money because of this. Need for co-ordinationWildlife experts and people working in the field of conservation feel that there is a need of coordination between the forest department and police officials. Honorary Wildlife Warden of Mumbai suburbs, Mayur Kamath said, "I feel there should be better coordination between the police and Forest Department. Whenever the police officials seize any wildlife items including skin or bones, before arriving at a conclusion they should consult the Forest Department and experts so that wrong information is not spread." Skin sent to forensic labOn Monday, the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Zone IV, Ankit Goel circulated a press note stating that the Vitthalwadi police had arrested father-son duo Hareshkumar Hansrajani and Deepak Hansarajani, for illegally possessing the skin of a tiger. A case was also registered under the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, for illegally possessing the tiger skin and keeping it in their shop in Ulhasnagar. DCP Goel said, "We have arrested two people for possessing the tiger skin and it was handed over to the Forest Department." However, Range Forest Officer Chandrakant Shelke from Thane Forest Department (Territorial) said, "The Vitthalwadi police have decided to send the skin to Pune for confirmation about the species of animal to which it belongs. Later they will hand over the skin to us after which we will carry out further investigation." Vithalwadi police station senior PI SJ Shirsat said, "We have sent the skin to the Zoological Survey of India, Pune, to check whether it is real. We will then send it to the Forest Department. We have doubts whether it is of a dog."

2018-04-02Mumbai is breathing a large amount of harmful pollutants, shows ministry report - Hindustan Times
Mumbai is breathing a large amount of harmful pollutants, shows ministry report Seven town and cities in Mumbai Metropolitan Region have topped the all-India list of harmful air pollutants for two years in a row mumbai Updated: Apr 02, 2018 14:33 IST Badri Chatterjee Hindustan Times The report identified Nanded, Dombivli, Ambernath, Badlapur, Ulhasnagar, Thane and Bhiwandi as the most polluted cities, with the highest levels of sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.(HT File Photo) From 2014 to 2016, seven major towns and cities around Mumbai, majorly home to industries, had the highest concentration of two harmful air pollutants -- sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) -- in India, according to a report submitted by the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change in Rajya Sabha earlier this week.The report identified Nanded, Dombivli, Ambernath, Badlapur, Ulhasnagar, Thane and Bhiwandi, apart from Pimpri-Chinchwad, Pune, Ghaziabad, Dehradun, Jamshedpur, Delhi, Kolkata, Barrackpore, and Faridabad, as most polluted towns and cities, with the highest levels of SO2 and NO2.While sulphur dioxide is produced from burning of fossil fuels (coal and oil) mostly by industries, nitrogen dioxide is emitted from cars, trucks and buses, power plants and off-road equipment.“Both the pollutants can have adverse effects on the respiratory system. The long-term effects include asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), especially among children, and the elderly,” said D Saha, former additional director, Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), who analysed the study. “The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) needs to monitor the industries mentioned in the report for air pollution norm compliance. A 500-m buffer zone needs to be created in residential areas too.”He said the concentration of air pollutants in Mumbai started to rise during the 2007-2012 period. “However, as all industries and mills have been phased out, they don’t pose a threat to the country’s financial capital as much as particulate matter,” said Saha.MPCB said their action plan to tackle harmful air pollutants for smaller towns and cities was almost ready. “Last year, the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-B) was roped in to carry out a source-apportionment study of all cities and towns from Maharashtra that find a mention in the report. The draft plan is ready and we are finalising it,” said P Anbalagan, member secretary, MPCB, adding it will take a minimum of two years to improve the air quality in these areas.Once the action plan is released, industries that need to adopt clean fuel on priority basis will be identified, while others will be instructed to change their amount of daily production to meet the emission standards. Large-scale industries will be asked to reduce their use of polluting sources such as coal and thermal, and shift to renewable sources of energy, said Anbalagan. “We have the example of Navi Mumbai, where 50-60 industries have shifted from coal to compressed natural gas (CNG), thereby improving the air quality of the area significantly. We had issued a statutory direction to them, and we expect to replicate this in these towns and cities,” he said.The state government officials said even though pollution levels cannot be brought down to zero, there is room for improvement from MPCB. “There needs to be stricter compliance from industries. There might be several action plans, but unless there is on-ground implementation, the situation won’t change. MPCB needs to ensure their officers are more vigilant, and take action against erring industries. As of now, there is a lack of diligent and honest implementation,” said Satish Gavai, additional chief secretary, state environment department. tags Pollutant Amount Mumbai Metropolitan Region Delhi Central Pollution Control Board Bhiwandi Mumbai breathing Mumbai more from mumbai Maharashtra has maximum cities, towns in India located along polluted river stretches Apr 02, 2018 14:30 IST Major fire burns down 10 oil godowns near Mumbai; no injuries reported Apr 02, 2018 13:15 IST Smashing the stereotype: Why we should stop believing myths about women and money Promotional Feature Recommended for you IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchiPune SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipFitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperinteractivesPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniStudymateEnglishmateHTsyndicationbridge schoolht brand studio Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.
