    Build rainwater harvesting in 15 days or pay Rs20k fine: Chanda civic body

    Mazhar Ali / TNN / May 28, 2022, 04:39 IST



    Chandrapur: Implementing its new policy aimed at recharging the groundwater level, Chandrapur Municipal Corporation (CMC) has given a 15-day ultimatum to every property owner, including apartment buildings, having borewell or well to install rainwater harvesting facility.

    The civic body has warned of punitive action against those failing to comply within the deadline.

    According to the new policy, property holders failing to set up rainwater harvesting facility will be penalized with fine of Rs20,000. This amount will be recovered as property tax arrears, civic officials said.

    The CMC has also decided to provide additional subsidy to those having rainwater harvesting facility according to the size of the building.

    The new policy offers Rs5,000 subsidy to buildings up to 1000 sq.ft construction area, Rs7,000 to buildings between 1001 to 2000 sq.ft area and Rs10,000 to buildings above 2000 sq.ft area. Apart from this, those having rainwater harvesting facility will get 2% concession in property tax for three years.

    “The building owners are being informed about the new policy of rainwater harvesting through telephone, SMS and voice message,” said CMC commissioner Rajesh Mohite and urged them to install it within next 15 days to avoid any action.

    Organizations like EcoPro, Rakshan Dharani Matiche, Rotary Club etc are promoting the rainwater harvesting initiative in the city and are getting huge support of interested people from different levels.

      Nagpur: Three-year jail to engineer-cum-builder for consumer forum contempt


      Clipped from: https://realty.economictimes.indiati...tempt/92079820


      While issuing a conviction warrant against Anil Potdukhe, who is also a planner, designer and an estimator, a bench comprising president Sanjay Patil and members Smita Chandekar and Avinash Prabhune directed him to pay Rs25,000 fine and Rs15,000 to the complainant towards the litigation cost.

      NAGPUR: Refusing any leniency to an engineer-cum-builder, the Additional District Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission here has awarded three years simple imprisonment to him for contempt of its June 2019 orders.

      While issuing a conviction warrant against Anil Potdukhe, who is also a planner, designer and an estimator, a bench comprising president Sanjay Patil and members Smita Chandekar and Avinash Prabhune directed him to pay Rs25,000 fine and Rs15,000 to the complainant towards the litigation cost.

      “The accused was found guilty under Sections 27 and 72 of the Consumer Protection Act, 2019. If he does not pay the fine, he will be liable to an additional imprisonment of three months. If he fulfils, the June 2019 order within the period of imprisonment, he should be released from imprisonment,” the judges said.

      A complaint in this regard was filed by Kamlakar Bhondwe alleging that Potdukhe had failed to complete his home despite paying full amount to him. On June 12, 2019, the commission had asked the engineer to refund Rs5.91 lakh to the complainant from September 9, 2016, with 12% interest for failure to build the home as per their agreement in 2019.

      The respondent was also ordered to pay Rs20,000 to the complainant for mental and physical harassment and Rs5,000 for the litigation cost. He was told to comply with the directives within a month.

      As Potdukhe failed to comply with the orders, Bhondwe filed an application for contempt against him on August 16, 2018.

      According to the petitioner, the respondent had not filed an appeal against the commission’s 2019 order or brought a stay of any court. Instead, he deliberately evaded and disobeyed the order.

      After receiving summons, Potduke appeared on October 9 and November 11, 2019, to explain his stand. But he again started skipping the commission’s hearings and failed to answer questions on why its orders were not complied with. Subsequently, the commission issued a non-bailable warrant against him on February 3, 2021, to secure his presence. He then appeared in the court and took bail on October 26, 2021.

      “The respondent, who is a white-collared criminal, has not complied with the order knowingly, so the complainant had to file the application. It was clear that he had to bear the cost in case of unwarranted mental/physical harassment and application,” the judges said.

      The judges said Potdukhe does not deserve any sympathy/mercy considering his overall behaviour. “Such respondents should be given both imprisonment and fine without any sympathy. In future, such consumer fraud and disobedience of order will be avoided. This will help build confidence of complainants and other citizens in laws that are in place for them and in the system that enforces them,” they said.

        NIT’s premium for comm use of ind plots higher than state fix


        Anjaya Anparthi | Jun 17, 2022, 08:24 IST


        Nagpur: The Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) has fixed a high premium for commercial use of industrial plots. It is much higher compared to what the state government approved four years ago.

        Its board of trustees on Thursday decided that a premium of 50% of ready reckoner value will have to be paid by an applicant for conversion of usage on industrial plot measuring over 4,001 sqft. Most of the industrial plots come under this slab. The government had fixed a premium of 20%.

        The premium now is 45% for 3,001-4,000 sq.ft, 40% for 2,501-3,000 sq.ft, 35% for 2,001-2,500 sq.ft, 30% for 1,501-2,000 sq.ft, 25% for 1,001-1,500 sq.ft and 20% for 1,000 sq.ft and below.

        In October, the NIT board had taken a decision to recover premium of 15% and ground rent of 2% for change in user from agriculture to residential/commercial/industrial. Similarly, a premium of 15% and ground rent of 2% was fixed for conversion from residential to commercial/industrial.

          forest land freed from enroachment

          NAGPUR: At a time when encroachments on forest land posed a big challenge before the forest department, Nagpur division officials have freed nearly 38 hectares of reserve forest land which was part of the Muniya Conservation Reserve in the Butibori range.

          Assistant conservator of forests (ACF) Narendra Chandewar said these encroachments had come up in Aamghat beat in Butibori during the last 7-8 years. Over 20 villagers were farming on the said land and had refused to move out. These encroachments were spread in Shedeshwar, Borimanjra and Kohla villages.

          Chandewar used powers under Sections 53, 54 and 54(A) of the Maharashtra Land Revenue Code, 1966, to remove encroachments, and issued at least 150 eviction notices and orders thereon.

          “In 2019, we had registered preliminary offence reports against these encroachers. During the hearing, the farmers failed to produce valid papers on ownership of the said land. Finally, in the last two days we removed these encroachments,” said Chandewar.

          The ACF added, “We are digging continuous contour trenches to protect the forest land and will take up plantations. In the last three years, we have removed over 200 hectares of forest land in North Umred, South Umred and Butibori forest ranges.”

          The drive was launched under deputy conservator of forest Bharat Singh Hada. Butibori range forest officer DP Wade, foresters BS Janwar, Sudhir Kularkar, Ganesh Jadhav, Vinod Shende, Dinesh Padwal, Mahadeo Munde, Nilesh Tawle, Maruti Munde, Yogesh Tadam, Ravikant Bhande, Kishor Chavan, and Kalyani Tiwde were part of the encroachment removal drive.

            Nagpur Residents march to NMC over lack of basic amenities, property rights

            Nagpur Residents march to NMC over lack of basic amenities, property rights

            Nagpur Residents march to NMC over lack of basic amenities, property rights

            NAGPUR: Two protests rocked the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) on Monday. While the occupants of Slum Rehabilitation Authority scheme from North Nagpur protested over lack of basic amenities, slum dwellers demanded NMC to issue them property cards.

            The residents of Slum Rehabilitation Scheme at Nari, Uppalwadi, pressed for various demands including road, streetlights, regular water, grocery shop and primary health centre. The protestors were led by former Congress corporator Manoj Sangole.

            Some six years ago, NMC had constructed multi-storey flat schemes at Nari to rehabilitate 544 slum dwellers from various evacuated shanties across the city. Though the civic body allotted flats to the affected dwellers, it failed to provide basic amenities like approach road, water network, and primary health centres among others.

            “Despite several memorandums in the last six years, NMC did nothing,” miffed residents told TOI. As a result, the residents have to drive through ‘kuccha rasta’, Sangole said. Even TOI had highlighted the plight of SRA scheme residents on many occasions.

            There is no sewerage network and instead, NMC constructed a septic tank. Now, all the tanks are full to the brim. The residents also drew attention to laying a sewerage network there.

            Municipal commissioner Radhakrishnan B assured to resolve their long-pending demand without any more delays. “NMC will soon start the process to lay water and road networks there. Other amenities too will be provided soon,” he said.

            Residents of Shiv Krishna Dham slum off Koradi Road under the banner of NGO Badlav Satyagriha too protested outside NMC headquarters at Civil Lines. According to the residents, they have been living here for the last 17-18 years. “Most of us have ration cards, Aadhaar cards, voting cards and even NMC’s levied property tax on many residents,” they said.

            Despite living here for so many years, some builders, in connivance with some government officials, are reportedly lobbying to get the place vacated.

            “We got no benefit of any central government schemes like pucca house under the Prime Minister scheme,” said residents.

              15 days on, EoW yet to act on NIT land scam complaint

              Anjaya Anparthi / TNN / Jun 29, 2022, 04:29 IST

              Nagpur: The economic offence wing (EoW) of the police department is yet to look into the complaints lodged by the Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) in the alleged land scam.

              As reported by TOI, the NIT had lodged complaints with the EoW on June 13 claiming that five people in nexus with officials of the city survey office-II got got mutation done on its two parcels of land worth around Rs 74 crore. The NIT had also mentioned the irregularities committed by all.

              NIT officials told TOI that they are surprised to see there is “no communication from the EoW”. “We have provided all related documents. Superintending of land records and deputy director of lands records have accepted the mutations were wrong and that they have been set aside. Still, the complaints have been overlooked,” they said.

              DCP Basavaraj Teli, who holds the additional charge of EoW, has not responded to TOI’s calls and messages for two days.

              TOI had also reported that the mutation was done in the name of same five persons on two layouts comprising over 800 plots and houses. All these lands are situated in mouza Nari in North Nagpur.

              NIT sources said, “Chances of political pressure on EoW cannot be ruled out as these cases are from North Nagpur.”

              In related to bogus contracts scam of the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), EoW has done nothing other than registering an offence and arresting couple of staffers of the civic body who were already found guilty in an inquiry conducted by the NMC.

                Nagpur Improvement Trust sends Nitin Raut’s land case to government 16 days before board clears minutes

                Anjaya Anparthi / TNN / Updated: Jul 6, 2022, 11:29 IST

                NAGPUR: The Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) has submitted the proposal seeking relaxation in its rule for allotting land to educational institution linked to former guardian minister Nitin Raut 16 days before the board of trustees approved the minutes.

                On March 30, TOI had reported that the NIT administration had proposed to allot 23,664.79 sq ft of land located at Nari in North Nagpur to the People’s Progressive Education Society without inviting applications from anyone. This was on a written request from secretary Sumedha, wife of Raut.

                Documents available with TOI show that Raut and Sumedha have equal investment of Rs 5,75,000 each in the society. Also, Raut too had written to NIT chairman Manoj Kumar Suryawanshi recommending the allotment. Raut, Congress MLA from North Nagpur, is president of the society too.

                “The proposal was submitted to the government on May 31 and a reply is awaited,” said NIT officials.

                The minutes of the meeting on March 30, in which the proposal was approved, were cleared on June 16. This means the proposal went to the government even before the minutes were approved.

                BJP MLA from East Nagpur Krishna Khopde told TOI that as per NIT’s rules, the board of trustees has to approve the proposal first. “Then the minutes is tabled before the board. The decision is implemented only after the minutes are approved. This is a brazen violation. The government should set aside the proposal and conduct an inquiry why the NIT is in a hurry to give land to Raut,” he said.

                However, Suryawanshi said the minutes are tabled before the board only for taking note of them. “The decision can be implemented before the minutes are approved. We are following the correct process. Now it is up to the government,” he added.

                Khopde said, “I know of instances when the NIT has not implemented decisions citing pending of approval of minutes.”

                Former NIT trustee Prakash Bhoyar said the NIT and government should not give land without giving equal chance to all interested institutions.
