    Himansshu Bhatt| TNN | Updated: Aug 2, 2017, 10:41 AM IST

    SURAT: The city's rapid strides in production of energy from unconventional sources, its energy efficient designs and innovative green building concepts have won the acknowledgement of US Green Building Council. Fourteen cities of the country had recently participated in a national challenge in 'Leadership in Energy and Environmental Designs' (LEED) organized by US Green Building Council and Surat was declared the winner.

    Surat emerged winner as it had provided and worked on all parameters like energy, water, waste, transportation, prosperity, health and safety as per international standards. The winner was declared after complete scrutiny of relevant data, but there were no second or third places in the competition. The Green Business Certification Institute (GBCI) Private Ltd that organized the national challenge is associated with US Green Building Council and works for resource conservation and environment protection.

    Surat Municipal Corporation's special commissioner for smart city project M Nagrajan said, "This shows that the work being done in Surat meets global benchmarks and parameters. Surat's green initiatives have now started to yield results. No other city in the country generates offshore wind energy like we do. Our operations on solar energy are good too."

      GARBAGE DUMPED AT AMC HQ

      Ahmedabad Mirror | Updated: Aug 3, 2017, 02.00 AM IST

      AMC officials found themselves in a dilemma on Wednesday afternoon after residents of Danilimda ward brought a tractor full of garbage and dumped it inside as well as outside the civic headquarters in Danapith The residents were led by Danilimda councillor Shahezad Khan Pathan. “As AMC workers have not been picking up garbage from the ward for a month now, we have been forced to resort to such steps,” claimed frustrated residents. The contract for doorto- door collection of garbage got over a month ago. AMC drew up another one to continue with regular garbage pickup. However, the service was not started in Danilimda.

      “The mayor has been visiting other areas and inaugurating the new garbage collection contract but is yet to visit Danilimda. Because of this, only five tractors have been collecting garbage from this area which has a total population of 1 lakh people,” said Rahim Pathan, a resident. Shahezad Khan Pathan said, “For the past one month, no worker from AMC has arrived to collect garbage. All the roads in our area are covered with filth which leads to rise in diseases during rainy season. When no help was forthcoming, we decided to show our anger by dumping garbage in the AMC office.”

      We have granted work of six zones to 12 contractors. Work in 11 wards has commenced. By August 15, work will resume in all 48 wards of the city.
      –Dinesh Desai, Health Committee chairman

        Archaeological Survey of India battles with encroachments

        TNN | Updated: Aug 11, 2017, 06:25 AM IST Representative image AHMEDABAD: Even as the old city of Ahmedabad gained the status of an Unesco world heritage site, Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) continues to grapple with the issue of rampant encroachment on age-old monuments in the Walled City. After a record 40 FIRs registered against several establishments in 2016, ASI has started a fresh round of complaints under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act.

        According to a complaint by Hansa Makwana, an employee of ASI office in Ahmedabad at Bhadra, they have come to know about a new construction and extension of an existing building in Dhalgarwad area.

        When a team visited the said spot, they learnt that the building belonged to Akhar Husain and Rizwan Qureshi, residents of Darul Sugra Husain Building behind Italian Bakery. The construction is within 100 metres of the protected monument of Shah Kupai Mosque. When the owners were asked for permission to construct the said building, they admitted that they did not have any. Thus, ASI officials decided to take formal action against the building owners for flouting norms.

        "Most of the monuments protected by ASI are concentrated in the Walled City areas and that's where there are most cases of encroachments. While many flout the norm of distance of 200 meters from the monument, many are obstructing the monument itself or encroaches on its premises," said a senior ASI official.

        He added, "Legal recourse has not exactly posed as deterrent as either the cases are pending for long or the accused were let go with a slap on the wrist. However, ASI has sought permission to pursue a number of such cases to higher courts."
