Take court nod if you bring policy to ok illegal structures : Bombay HC to Maha govt Rosy Sequeira,TNN Jul 30, 2015, 11.09 PM ISTShare on Linkedin MUMBAI: Bombay High Court on Thursday said the State government is free to bring a policy for regularization of illegal structures in Navi Mumbai but also restrained it from implementing it without the court's nod. A bench of Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Revati Mohite-Dere, issued the directions while hearing two public interest litigations, regarding inaction against illegal constructions by the three planning authorities Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation, City and Industrial Development Corporation and NaviMumbai Municipal Corporation as they passed the buck on jurisdiction. The bench expressed apprehension that the government may come out with a policy to regularise unauthorised construction on the lines of Pimpri- Chinchwad and Ulhasnagar. However, it said while the State is at liberty to undertake such an exercise but any such policy will not be given effect to without the permission of the court. Taking note that the three planning authoriities are having conflict of jurisdiction'' problems, the court directed them to take steps to initiate action for demolition of illegal structures within their respective jurisdiction. It has directed each of them to create a special squad and coordinate with each other. The squad will also undertake the task of ensuring prevention of illegal structures and will identify and issue notices to such structures. The three authorities are directed to undertake a survey of all illegal constructions and complete it within six months. On July 14 the court had directed its court receiver to take possession of nine buildings which are constructed and under construction without permissions in village Digha. The court then had also directed the tehsildar to inspect 86 illegal buildings (whose information was received under Right to Information) in the same village and submit a report. The court has now asked the tehsildar to inspect 15 more illegal buildings pointed out to by an intervenor.
2015-07-25The way we were then - News - Mid-Day - Mid-Day
The Way We Were Then Jul 25, 2015, 07:58 IST | Kanchan Gupta A couple of days ago I read a scintillating article by poet-writer-filmmaker Pritish Nandy. Titled ‘The way we are today’, it takes us back in time when we were all poor (some had no money, some had little and none had a lot) but happy and nursed radical ideas over cups of nimbu-chai, tumblers of filter coffee or glasses of rum pani, depending on the state of the health of our wallet. I don’t know about others who read the essay, but I was transported to my growing up years in what was then a one-street up country town called Jamshedpur. Barring pockets of privately-owned dwellings which were also islands of relative affluence, Jamshedpur was one sprawling colony where everybody was equally un-rich. We belonged to what was referred to as the ‘middle-class’, quite unlike today’s middle-classes. Values, and not the monthly salary daddy brought home, defined this amorphous segment of Indian society. One of the proverbs I learned early in life (though I have not practised it) was ‘Cut your coat according to your cloth’. My mother would not tire of reminding me, ‘Waste not, want not’. Food was never thrown into the garbage bin, it was recycled and reborn with exotic names, possibly coined to gloss over the misery of having to make do with shortages. We were not poor, nor were our neighbours, including those in the extended neighbourhood. We were, as I said, un-rich. Our parents counted their pennies. We wore cotton as terylene was too flash and terrycot too expensive. We wore Bata shoes bought during festive season discount sale. A pair of stretchlon pants was the owner’s pride and the beholder’s envy.Simple living, high thinking was a mantra of sorts. Being spartan was fashionable. Mahatma Gandhi would not have approved any deviation from the Biblical strait and the narrow. In a sense, being un-rich was nice, the rich were to be tolerated but not emulated. The way we were was largely on account of the way India was. The shortage economy, governed by the licence-permit-quota raj, was the only economy we knew. What we knew of the West was a coloured version: Materialism was not a guarantor of happiness. We were happy. We were happy to make do with shoddy ‘Made in India’ merchandise and drool over ‘Made in Japan’ two-in-ones. At home, medicine foil was recycled to scrub utensils and newspapers and magazines were sold separately as the latter fetched more money. Jugaad, the means of doing without what would be considered necessary anywhere else in the world, for instance in repairing an iron or making a ramshackle radio with burned out valves work, became a national passion. Never mind the iron, repaired laboriously with a bit of this and a bit of that, would either over-heat or remain stone cold, and the radio would have more hiss and cackle than decipherable sound. We never innovated nor designed, we copy-catted and produced wretched replicas of which we were immensely proud. Fine sewing needles, much in demand, were smuggled in from Japan. They were then stamped ‘Made in USA’ —Ulhasnagar Sindhi Association, or so the joke went. Life in my town was predetermined, as were ambitions pre-defined. Most of us who went to Loyola School dreamt of three ‘F’s, that would follow in normal course if you were able to land a job with the Tatas: a flat, a fridge and a Fiat. In Calcutta, where Pritish Nandy was growing up, young men and women from un-rich families dreamt of revolution and the People’s Liberation Army marching in. In the meanwhile, they read Brecht, debated dialectics of materialism and wrote Dylanesque poems that were published by Writers Workshop. When the Revolution failed and the PLA stayed put at Shanghai, Pritish Nandy and his friends slipped into jobs and professions that were always open to them. The blue chip companies which had their headquarters in Calcutta would not hire anybody else. The ad agencies thought the world of Bengali copywriters and designers. Only Aparna Sen could make a film like 36 Chowringhee Lane and Paroma (in whose production Pritish Nandy had more than a little role). And when they got bored they moved on. To new jobs, new cities, new lives. As for those of use who baulked at the thought of staying on in Jamshedpur, we sailed forth in search of a living, if not fame and fortune. That’s how the un-rich became rich. And that's how India changed, gradually at first and rapidly later, making the pursuit of wealth a perfectly legitimate and respectable aim in life.

2015-07-24Bragging about 4-month-old murder lands Thane man
Bragging About 4-Month-Old Murder Lands Thane Man In Jail Jul 24, 2015, 08:15 IST | Vinod Kumar MenonFacebookG+TwitterPinterestFeedback The smartest criminals are also often the dumbest ones because, having committed the perfect crime, they can’t resist bragging about it. This is exactly what happened to a property broker from Shahapur in Thane district, who murdered another broker he was having a dispute with and threw the body off a cliff, into a nearly 2,000-foot deep gorge in Malshej Ghat. Mumbai crime: Bragging about unsolved murder lands killer in jailThe remains would have lain there, pecked off bit by bit by crows and vultures and swept away by a babbling brook nearby, until there was nothing left to discover but for the broker’s need to brag about the murder to his friends in a drunken stupor.Unfortunately for the criminal, the bragging, which took place in a bar earlier this month, was overheard by an informer, who approached the police and helped them arrest the broker in connection with the murder, which had taken place nearly four months ago. Scouring the area to find the body, all that the cops could recover on Wednesday were some teeth, a few parts of the shattered skull, some other bones and what remained of the clothes that the victim was wearing. The broker and his accomplice have been charged with kidnapping and murder and are currently behind bars. Smooth operator For the family of Datta Keru Bohir (34), a broker who dealt in adivasi non-agricultural plots, his staying away from home for weeks or even months was nothing new. Hence, when they saw Bohir leave their Shahapur house around March 23, they only expected to see him sometime in April or even May. The months rolled by and, with June approaching, there was still no sign of Bohir. With even his phone being unreachable, the family began to get worried. They spoke to several people, including another broker, Kapil Jadhav (24), a resident of the Padgha village nearby, who was known to the family as someone who brought buyers to Bohir. Jadhav told them that he hadn’t seen Bohir since March, and that got the family even more worried. Jadhav then suggested that the family lodge a missing complaint. Stumped On June 29, Jadhav went with the family to the Shahapur police station and gave the police details of what Bohir was wearing blue jeans and a yellow half-sleeve T-shirt when he had seen the missing man last, which he claimed was sometime in March. With only those clues to go on, the police could not make much headway in the case, and speaking to other people known to Bohir also did not yield any information about his possible whereabouts.Cue the braggart In the first week of July, Jadhav was sitting with his friends in a bar in Shahapur and the conversation veered towards interesting crime stories. As the night wore on and Jadhav kept getting more and more drunk, he told his friends that he had murdered a person and disposed of his body. Baby Patankar case: Retiring cop's overconfidence lands him in jail An informer sitting at a table nearby overheard this and informed the Shahapur police. The police detained Jadhav and, after sustained interrogation, he confessed to having murdered Bohir over a property dispute, but said he had thrown the body into the Mumbra creek. Bohir’s family, who knew about the long-standing dispute, had, meanwhile, also begun to suspect Jadhav and, on July 13, they filed a complaint of kidnapping against him. The matter was then transferred to the Thane (Rural) Crime Branch for further investigation. Assistant Inspector S B Harugade of the Thane (Rural) Crime Branch, who is also the investigating officer in the case, confirmed that a kidnapping case had been registered against Jadhav. According to Harugade, preliminary inquiries revealed that Jadhav had a dispute with Bohir that had lasted months and he held Bohir responsible for a loss of approximately Rs 40 lakh. Dispute Jadhav told the police that Bohir had shown him a property and, in December 2014, Jadhav had found a buyer, who had given him a token amount of Rs 25-30 lakh. Jadhav had given this amount to Bohir so that he could pay the seller and procure the property. Bohir, however, had allegedly concealed the fact that the property was disputed. He failed to procure the property and allegedly did not even return the amount to Jadhav, who was being hounded by the buyer. Jadhav, who had allegedly been cheated of smaller amounts by Bohir even before, incurred a heavy loss in the deal and he decided to teach Bohir a lesson. Misled According to officials, Jadhav tried to mislead them with a false story. While he confessed to murdering Bohir, he said that he had dumped the body in the Mumbra creek. The Crime Branch team took him and a few other people to search the creek and neighbouring area for three days last week but found no sign of the body, which was crucial for proving the murder. Harugade added, “We got suspicious and questioned Jadhav one again. This time, he not only confessed to have dumped the body at Malshej Ghat but also revealed the name of his accomplice in the murder, Gajanan Banger, a Padgha resident, who has been arrested.” This information came to light only on July 21. The murder According to Harugade, on March 25, Jadhav took Bohir and Banger for a drink to the banks of the Bhatsa river near Shahapur after 7 pm, After drinking there for some time, they decided to visit a bar in Kalyan around 9.30 pm, before moving on to another bar in Ulhasnagar. Once Bohir was sozzled, Jadhav and Banger drove him, in Bohir’s four-wheeler, to Malshej Ghat, where they reached around 3.30 am. Jadhav told the police that Bohir always kept a firearm in his vehicle and that they fired two rounds into his chest and forehead. Banger and he then threw Bohir’s body into Malshej Ghat to destroy the evidence. Jadhav also said he threw the firearm an important piece of evidence into the valley, but the police suspect that he is lying about having done that. Harugade said the police will have to corroborate Jadhav’s statements with evidence. What remained Acting on the confession given by Jadhav, a Crime Branch team of eight policemen took the accused to Malshej Ghat to look for Bohir’s body on Wednesday morning. Assistant Inspector Harugade said, “Bohir was thrown into a valley in Malshej Ghat which is almost 650 metres (approximately 2,100 feet) deep, and the heavy rains had given birth to a stream at the bottom of the valley. We had to take the risk of climbing down the ghat with the help of villagers, and only then did we come across the crucial piece of evidence”. According to Hargude, near the edge of a rock, at a 450-metre drop from the road, they found a few teeth, some parts of a skull and a few other bones. A pair of blue jeans, remains of a yellow half-sleeved T-shirt which, prima facie, matched the description of the clothes Bohir was wearing in the missing complaintand undergarments were also found on the rock. Harugade said, “We were lucky to have at least found this much evidence. Any further delay could have resulted in the evidence getting destroyed completely and being washed away due to heavy rains.” The samples have been sent to the Forensic Medicine and Toxicology Department of Grant Medical College for ascertaining the cause of death and for identification of the deceased. Jadhav and Banger are in police custody and have been charged under IPC Sections 364 (kidnapping), 302 (murder), 201 (destruction of evidence) and others. The police have also written to the mobile service provider to ascertain the location of the accused and deceased on the day of the murder (March 25) to make a watertight case. Harugade added that preliminary inquiry has also revealed that the deceased, Bohir, had two cases of forgery and cheating registered against him in the past over some land dispute.

2015-07-20Mumbai: Amazon worker orders cookers, delivers iPa
Amazon Worker Orders Cookers, Delivers IPads, IPhones To Himself Jul 20, 2015, 10:32 IST The youth works in the firm’s packaging department at its Bhiwandi warehouse and thrice packed expensive electronic goods in pressure cooker boxes and delivered it home A worker from the warehouse of online retail store Amazon has been arrested for sneaking out expensive electronic items in the guise of delivering pressure cookers. The Vithalwadi police in Ulhasnagar arrested the youth on Friday and came to know that he had planned to sell the stolen items for cheap to any local buyer.The accused has been identified as Pramod Bhamble, a 21-year-old employee of the company’s packaging department. Bhamble worked in the Bhiwandi warehouse of Amazon. A resident of Camp Number 4 in Ulhasnagar, he has been working with the packaging department for the last two and a half years, and his job was to pack goods ordered from the popular website or app. Last week, the Vithalwadi police got a tip-off that a person had been trying to sell expensive electronic items, allegedly stolen from an Amazon warehouse, at cheaper rates. Based on this information, police raided Bhamble’s house and found iPhones, iPads, tablet PCs, cameras, and watches. The youth later confessed to the police that he had kept some items at his friends’ house, following which the cops recovered the entire consignment worth Rs 8.31 lakh. Modus operandi Since Bhamble’s position allowed him access to order numbers, he would use this to his advantage. Police said Bhamble would order pressure cookers from the website under different names, but would get them delivered to the same address i.e. his residence. “Since he was employed with the packaging department, he had easy access to order numbers. Using the order numbers, he packed his order himself; but instead of putting pressure cookers in the box, he stuffed it with iPhones, iPads, watches, cameras, and other expensive electronics in the pressure cooker box. Before dispatching the order, the godown also has a mechanism to weigh the package. To dodge this, Bhamble stuffed equipment of equivalent weight,” an officer from Vithalwadi police station said. Bhamble confessed to the cops that he had ordered pressure cookers thrice in the last 15 days. After he placed the order, instead of, say, packing a five-kg pressure cooker, he would stuff gadgets of equivalent weight. After receiving delivery clearance, he would then deliver the goods himself and store it at his house. Speaking to mid-day, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone IV) Vasant Jadhav said, “Bhamble’s job profile was of goods packaging at Amazon.com’s warehouse in Bhiwandi. After we got information that Bhamble was selling electronics from the warehouse at cheaper rates, we started working on the case. On Thursday evening, we caught Bhamble red-handed with the box, near his house. After checking the box, we found a cell phone and other electronic accessories. So, we went to his place and saw he had many such products. During questioning, he told us he had kept a few of the stolen products at the houses of his two friends.” Bhamble had planned to sell the phone to the customer whom he had approached. It was this customer who went to the police. “All the products he stole have been recovered. He had not sold any of them,” said Subhash Pansare, police sub–inspector, Vitthalwadi police station. What is worrying for the company is that this may not be a lone case. According to the police, Bhamble told them that at least two others had been running a similar scam. Vijay Dolas, senior police inspector, Vithalwadi police station, told mid-day, “In his statement, Bhamble said he saw two to three other people involved in the same activity, after which he also decided to try it. We are investigating into the others as well. On Saturday, some people from Amazon had come to the police station for the inquiry. They said they would carry out fresh audits to verify how many such products have gone missing.” The case was registered under Section 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) of the Indian Penal Code and transferred to the Kongaon police station in Bhiwandi. Till the time of going to press, the spokesperson for Amazon was unavailable for comment.

Well your problems could have been solved if you ordered a pressure cooker from Amazon India and 21-year-old Pramod Bhamble was the one packing it for you at their warehouse. Don't mistake us! Pramod is not the Indian version of an Apple fanatic Santa Claus. He is a thief and worse he stole from his employers Amazon by using a very simple trick.Bhamble, who is a resident of Mumbai's Ulhasnagar region used to work in Amazon's Bhiwandi warehouse. At the warehouse, for the past two and a half years, he was tasked with packaging goods ordered by customers online. Mid-Day reports that Pramod took advantage of his position which allowed him access to order numbers. He ordered multiple pressure cookers under fake names and got them delivered to his address. But instead of pressure cookers the boxes heading his way were stuffed with Apple products and other expensive electronics including cameras and expensive watches. To fool the mechanism which checked the weight of packages before sending them off, he stuffed the boxes with stuff weighing only equally. He sometimes even delivered the products himself; to his house! Last week, Vithalwadi police got a tip-off that someone was trying to sell stolen electronic goods that were sourced from Amazon's warehouse. After figuring his identity, police followed him and caught him with a box full of expensive electronic items near his place. A raid at his house and his friend's place also gave them access to a stash which was valued at Rs 8.31 lakh. Pramod had ordered three cookers in past fifteen days and the greed did help the police nab him. While he is being tried under Section 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) of the Indian Penal Code, he did say that he saw some more people involved in similar scams and only decided to try it.

Modi Government Wants To Get 400 Million Indians Skilled By 2022. But That Might Not Mean More Jobs JULY 20, 2015 The NDA government has retooled the UPA's skill upgrade plans for India and announced a more detailed, though slightly less ambitious, programme. 400 millions skilled by 2022 - but jobs? The new target is to get 400 million Indians skilled by 2022. This would plug the "skills gap", the government feels, and lead to more people getting better jobs. But, will a better skill set ensure jobs for millions? The experience till now has not been very encouraging. Among those who got formal training in an institution like Industrial Training Institute (ITI) or other Skill Centers, the unemployment rate was high - at 14.5 per cent - compared to 2.6 per cent overall, according to a survey by the Labour Bureau in 2014 and released this year.

Thane: Woman's pregnancy blows lid off prostitution racket in rehab centre By Sailee Dhayalkar |Posted 2 hours Woman claims the child is her husband’s, who, authorities say, hasn’t visited her since 2013; local police admit they knew about prostitution racket but claim they can’t do anything about it In some cases, even ‘shocking’ is an understatement. A 23-year-old woman’s pregnancy has blown the lid off a prostitution racket allegedly being run in an Ulhasnagar rehabilitation centre, which is supposed to be a safe home for women rescued from prostitution across Thane. What’s worse, the local police admit that they know about the racket but claim they can’t do anything about it. The centre, Shantisadan, in Camp No 5, Ulhasnagar. Pic/Navneet Barhate No men allowedThe 23-year-old, who is from Bangladesh and was forced into prostitution by her uncle and then her husband, was rescued from a red light area in Bhiwandi in 2013 and sent, on the orders of a court, to Shantisadan in Camp Number 5, Ulhasnagar. The government-run centre, which is meant for homeless and destitute women, also serves as an orphanage and no men, except for those who may be working at the centre, are allowed in. After the woman exhibited signs of pregnancy, she was taken for a medical check-up by the shelter’s authorities. They were left flummoxed when the report, which they received earlier this week, confirmed that she had been pregnant for over 42 days. What has surprised the management even more is the woman’s claim that the child is her husband’s. The woman has been at the centre since 2013 and officials told mid-day that her husband has never visited her since then. Shrugging offWhen the shelter’s management approached the Hill Line police to conduct an investigation yesterday, their request was turned down and they were allegedly asked to “settle the matter” amongst themselves. Senior police inspector Dhananjay Dhopavkar of Hill Line police station said, “What can we do? This centre has no security. The women living there have been freely moving in and out of the place. The woman in this case has claimed she willingly made physical contact with her husband.” Dhopavkar added that the centre has been allowing sex workers to continue engaging in prostitution while living there. Long journeyThe woman, who was an orphan, was sold to an agent in Kolhapur by her uncle as he could not afford to take care of her. She was forced into prostitution and later met a man who promised her a better future. She got married to him but was forced into the sex trade by him as well. She was rescued from a red light area in Bhiwandi on September 18, 2013, and sent to the centre in Ulhasnagar on court orders. She has been staying there since then. The other sideNanda Gargunde, superintendent of the rehabilitation centre, dismissed the allegations and added the police had not been approached for any investigation.

Myanmarese woman at rescue home alleges forced abortion attempt She was rescued from traffickers in 2012, married her rescuer. Mumbai | Updated: July 14, 2015 8:23 am An inmate of a state-run home for rescued women has accused its officials of trying to force her to undergo a medical termination of her pregnancy. The 20-year-old woman, a Myanmarese national, was rescued from traffickers in 2012, and later married her rescuer, a Bhiwandi resident. The woman’s advocate, Archana Rupwate, said that on Saturday, the woman was taken without her consent, or that of her husband’s, to a clinic for an abortion. Rupwate, from the Human Rights Law Network, said the woman was first taken to the Ulhasnagar Civil Hospital and then to a local hospital in Bhiwandi, about 60 km from Mumbai.The woman has been in the state-run facility called Shanti Sadan in Ulhasnagar for nearly two years. It has emerged that her husband often visited her inside the facility — a claim denied by an official of the women’s home. “The woman told me that the officials at the facility told her to undergo an abortion or else her husband would be booked on rape charges,” said Rupwate, who served a legal notice on the superintendent of the rescue home, Nanda Ghoderao, stating she could not force the woman to undergo an abortion. The woman’s 22-year-old husband told The Indian Express that once the notice was served, officials at the facility appeared to reconsider and returned. “They tried to scare her by saying they would get me jailed if she did not abort the child,” said the man, who claims to have married the woman according to Islamic law. Ghoderao refuted the allegations saying nobody compelled the woman to abort. She also claimed that the woman frequently left the facility on the pretext of being ill and may have met her husband outside. “They did not take her anywhere,” she said, speaking to The Indian Express over the phone. She, however, confirmed that the woman was 42 days pregnant. She said appropriate action would be initiated. “The police will decide on future course of action,” she said. Principal Secretary of the state’s Women and Child Development Department Sanjay Kumar said he was not aware of the case. “Unless I see all the facts and examine (them) as per law, I cannot say anything,” he said. The woman was originally rescued from traffickers in 2012, after which she married one of her rescuers and lived with him in Bhiwandi. Two years ago, a dispute with her neighbour led to her nationality being discovered by local authorities. Following this, it was also found that she had been trafficked from Myanmar by her brother-in-law and sold to a pimp in Mumbai for Rs 30,000. She was admitted to the Ulhasnagar institution while she awaited repatriation proceedings.

2015-07-12Hospitals hit by ventilator shortage | The Asian A
Hospitals hit by ventilator shortage Jul 13, 2015 - Swati Jha | mumbai Only 39 units are available in government hospitals of which a mere 24 are functioning In a grim state of affairs, only 39 ventilators are available in state government hospitals in the suburbs for covering the immense population of the peripheral areas. However, in seven government hospitals, the total number of ventilators in working condition is only 24, while 12 continue to remain out of service even after complaints have been repeatedly made to the authorities. According to experts, the shortage of ventilator facilities is not only leading to inability of the hospitals to attend to emergency cases but also to the swelling workload in the civic hospitals, Sion, Nair and KEM. Out of the 13 ventilators in the Civil Hospital in Thane, only eight are in working condition. And we are talking of supporting the entire population of 20 lakh which is residing in the area and the nearby societies that are sprouting up at a great speed everyday. Things have remained unchanged for years and patients are being made to travel to different healthcare units, said Rajesh Gadkar, who has been working with the Thane Civil Hospital for the last two years, adding that the most of the emergency cases are not registered in the hospital. He said that this is also leading to patients opting for private hospitals. Three ventilators in the hospital are in a condemnable condition currently and are in requirement of replacement. Central Hospital at Ulhasnagar has five ventilators out of which only four are working, while out of the 10 at Cottage Hospital, Raigad, only six are functioning. Last month we had to transfer a patient who was injured in the gas tragedy to Sion Hospital. His condition was very critical and we already had six patients on ventilator. Besides, there are many other amenities that are missing in the hospital due to which transferring him was required. This is what happens most of the times in a day. Over 20 to 25 patients are transferred and most of them are sent to Sion or KEM hospital, said a doctor from Cottage Hospital. The doctor added that in absence of ventilators, many critical patients requiring immediate artificial respiration lose their lives if they are not transferred on time or appropriately in all facilities. Sujata Saunik, state health secretary, said that the state is planning to introduce more ventilators in maternity care units, neo-natal care units and government hospitals. We are positive that we will be able to witness results soon. Planning is on, said Ms Saunik. Mr Gadkar also added that doctors are also responsible for the lapses. Many doctors work in association with private hospitals and clinics. By not upgrading amenities all of them earn well and the doctors get due benefits. However, its the patients who suffer in the end, said Mr Gadkar.

To curb pollution, NGT says no to new or expansion of factories Wednesday, 8 July 2015 - 8:45am IST | Place: Thane | Agency: dna | From the print edition Ankita G Menon 2Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Whatsapp Comments In fact, it has said no new industrial units or expansion of existing units will be allowed until measures are taken to protect the rivers that provide drinking water to thousands in the district. To the relief of Thanekars and environmentalists, who have been worried about the consistent rise in the pollution of Ulhas and Waldhuni rivers, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has directed the state and local industries to take concrete steps to prevent its pollution. In fact, it has said no new industrial units or expansion of existing units will be allowed until measures are taken to protect the rivers that provide drinking water to thousands in the district. Moreover, NGT has asked the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation (UMC) and the Kalyan Dombivli Municipal Corporations (KDMC) specifically to deposit Rs15 crore each and the Kulgaon-Badlapur and Ambernath municipal councils to deposit Rs5 crore each with the divisional commissioner within six weeks for the restoration of the Waldhuni and Ulhas rivers. It also alleges that the Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) provided by the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) in Ambernath, Dombivli, Badlapur are either inadequate or not operating efficiently. The application also points out that though the MPCB and the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) had issued notices to polluters, they had not taken adequate legal action and some industries discharging effluents were bypassing CETPs. MIDC has been asked to commission the effluent disposal systems within 24 months and submit a bank guarantee of Rs10 crore to the MPCB to ensure compliance and it will also oversee the work to repair and enhance the capacity of the treatment plants. A committee under the divisional commissioner has been directed to adopt suitable experts for planning and implementation of restitution and restoration works on the rivers. As per the order, within the next 18 months, the divisional commissioner has been directed to ensure the clean up and beautification of the river banks to protect them from any unauthorised dumping of wastes and effluents. NGO Vanashakti had filed an appeal before the NGT to restore the Ulhas river, which was being subject to discharge of untreated effluents from MIDC industrial estates, alleging that the pollution seriously affects the health of people in the vicinity. 2Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Whatsapp Comments National Green Tribunal (NGT)riversPollutionUlhasnagar Municipal Corporation (UMC)Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs)Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB)Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC)

उल्हासनगर : नगर रचनाकार पर 10 लाख रुपये रिश्वत मांगने का आरोप | Updated: Jul 7, 2015, 08:30AM IST आरोप है कि CNG पंप लगाने की इजाजत देने के लिए मांगी गई थी रिश्वत उल्हासनगर महानगरपालिका में अक्सर किसी न किसी तरह के भ्रष्टाचार का खुलासा होता रहता है। इस बार हमेशा विवादों में रहने वाले नगर रचना विभाग के रचनाकार मिलिंद सोनवणे पर आरोप लगा है कि उन्होंने सीएनजी पंप लगाने की इजाजत देने के लिए 10 लाख रुपये की रिश्वत की मांग की है। यह आरोप मारुति जाधव रिक्शा संगठन ने लगाया है। इसके लिए रिक्शा संगठन बाकायदा उल्हासनगर के रिक्शा स्टैंड पर एक डिब्बा रखकर पैसे भी जमा कर रहा है। हालांकि अपने ऊपर लगे रिश्वत के आरोप पर सोनवणे ने सफाई देते हुए कहा है कि ऐसी कोई बात नहीं है। यह आरोप निराधार है। दरअसल उल्हासनगर में एक भी सीएनजी पंप नहीं है, जिस वजह से यहां के रिक्शावालों को रिक्शा में गैस भरवाने के लिए अंबरनाथ जाना पड़ता है। वहां भी 3-4 घंटे लाइन में खड़े रहने के बाद जाकर नंबर आता है। इससे उनके काम और कमाई पर असर पड़ता है। इस समस्या को देखते हुए यहां के एक पेट्रोल पंप मालिक ने उल्हासनगर महानगरपालिका के नगर रचना विभाग से सीएनजी पंप लगाने की इजाजत मांगी थी, लेकिन इजाजत देने के बदले सोनवणे ने उनसे 10 लाख रुपये की मांग की। ऐसा आरोप मारुति जाधव रिक्शा संगठन के अध्यक्ष राजा पाटील और उपाध्यक्ष शेखर यादव ने लगाया है। नगर रचना विभाग इससे पहले भी विवादों में रहा है। पूर्व नगर रचनाकार को ऐंटि करप्शन ब्यूरो ने रिश्वत लेते रंगे हाथों गिरफ्तार किया था। सोनवणे का कहना है कि जिस जगह के लिए इजाजत मांगी गई है, वह उपयुक्त नहीं है। वह नियम में नहीं बैठती है। मुझ पर लगाया गया आरोप निराधार है। वहीं, उल्हासनगर महानगरपालिका के आयुक्त मनोहर हीरे ने एनबीटी को बताया कि जो भी समस्या होगी उसका निवारण किया जाएगा। कोट- मुझ पर लगाए गए आरोप बेबुनियाद हैं। मैं नियमों के अनुसार ही काम कर रहा हूं, लेकिन कुछ लोग मुझे बदनाम करने की कोशिश में हैं।

The boy ran away from his Ulhasnagar home to escape humiliation and torture meted out by his married sister. The Thane Child Protection Unit (CPU) found the minor at the Bhiwandi correction home and after several sessions of counseling came to know that he had run away from his home owing to ill-treatment meted out by his sister and her family. The boy was virtually driven to begging to make ends meet after his mother's death and his father and elder brother had deserted him around two to three years ago, said Madan Ballal, in-charge of the CPU. "He took up a petty job in a garage at Ulhasnagar and the owner sent him to Lucknow to attend to the cattle," said sub-inspector Kamalludin Shaikh. The police found the boy and sent him to the correction home a few months ago where the CPU officials spotted him and started looking for his maternal aunt.

2015-07-06Water Pollution: NGT demands Rs 15 crore from UMC
Water Pollution: NGT demands Rs 15 crore from UMC for restoration of Waldhuni, Ulhas rivers Kulgaon-Badlapur, Ambernath municipal councils told to deposit Rs 5 cr each. Mumbai | Published: July 7, 2015 1:48 am The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has directed the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation (UMC) to deposit Rs 15 crore and the Kulgaon-Badlapur and Ambernath municipal councils to deposit Rs 5 crore each with the divisional commissioner within six weeks for the restoration of the Waldhuni and Ulhas rivers. The bench, comprising Justice V R Kingaonkar and expert member Ajay Deshpande, was hearing an application by NGO Vanashakti, which alleged that industries were severely polluting the Ulhas river and sought the clean-up of the river. “Industrial units are responsible for causing great environmental pollution of different water bodies including Ulhas river, the estuary and Waldhuni river, even the groundwater in and around the area of these industrial areas. Considering such magnitude of the pollution caused by the industrial units, its capacity and prosperity, responsibility of the units to pay compensation cannot be disputed on any plausible cause or ground,” said the Pune bench of the NGT. The chief secretary has also been directed to ensure that the four adjoining urban bodies provide the required Sewage Treatment Plant capacity in a phased manner within 24 months.The bench came down heavily on the pollution control boards’ inaction in the area, which was declared a critically polluted area back in 2009. “Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) has failed to ensure that the MIDC provides the necessary effluent disposal system in a time bound manner. We are,therefore, at pains to note the action or rather inaction of Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) as well as MPCB to prevent and control the water pollution in the industrial area, in spite of being notified as critically polluted area. MPCB and CPCB are aware that the Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETP) are not functioning properly, we do not find any effective intervention by MPCB or even by CPCB to regulate such polluting discharges,” the order stated. A committee under the divisional commissioner has been directed to adopt suitable experts for planning and implementation of restitution and restoration works on the rivers. Within the next 18 months, the divisional commissioner has been directed to ensure the cleanup and ensure beautification of the river banks to protect them from any unauthorised dumping of wastes and effluents, the order stated. NGO Vanashakti had filed an appeal before the NGT to restore the Ulhas river, which was seeing discharge of untreated effluents from MIDC industrial estates, alleging that the pollution seriously affects the health of people in Ambernath, Badlapur, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan-Dombivli. Further, the tribunal has directed the Dombivli CETP to pay Rs 30 crore, based on the excessive Chemical Oxygen Demand load released into the water environment, and the Ambernath CETP to pay Rs 15 crore as restoration and restitution costs. The order has brought an end to the NGO’s two-year long fight to get authorities to clean up the river. “Economic growth at the cost of free and pure drinking water is not progress. For over four decades the perennial river Ulhas was abused and polluted. People fell sick in large numbers, marine life was destroyed, yet the government chose to look the other way. We were threatened, induced , abused yet we persisted and have managed to get legal protection to this water source. Merely worshiping rivers on sacred days is not enough. We need to ensure that they are kept pollution free for generations to come,” said D Stalin, project director, NGO Vanashakti.

Town planner wants 10L bribe to approve CNG pump Pradeep Gupta,TNN Jul 6, 2015, 04.19 AM IST KALYAN: The anti-corruption bureau on Sunday launched a probe after a businessman alleged that the town planning authority had demanded a bribe of Rs 10 lakh from him to sanction setting-up of a compressed natural gas pump in Ulhasnagar. The businessman, Nitin Motwani, said that he had received all necessary approvals from state and central agencies to set up the pumping station. Motwani claimed that he had applied to the town planning authority on January 30 last year but had not yet received the go-ahead as he did not heed to "demands for money made by town planner Milind Sonawane". Sonawane has refuted the allegation against him. Motwani said that while the that government is pushing for consumption of green gas to protect the environment and reduce pollution, those seeking to install such gas stations were facing harassment from officials. "He told me that the money is required to grease palms of senior officials deputy civic commissioner, additional municipal commissioner and the commissioner... He has been delaying approval of my pump by raising irrelevant issues," Motwani claimed. Sonawane, on his part, told TOI that Motwani's case does not fulfill certain norms. "For one, the plot is not located within 84 metres from the road junction. Besides, there is an encroachment issue due to which I cannot sanction the plan," he said. "This businessman is making false allegations. It's nothing but a pressure tactic." Sonawane also said that there has been no government resolution issued regarding compressed natural gas pumps due to which it was difficult to pass orders.
