    Katol Road widening may get a relook

    Sarfaraz Ahmed| TNN | Mar 18, 2018, 03:15 IST
    Nagpur: Shopkeepers and traders from Katol Road erupted in joy after city MP and Union minister of road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari agreed to their demand to shift the road widening project. However, NHAI officials maintained that they were yet to get any written communication to shift the start point of the project from Old Katol Naka to New Katol Naka and beyond.

    At the same time, they also didn’t deny the claim by the project opponents that the road widening from 30 metres to 45 metres on the stretch has been called off. The news also brought cheers to environment friendly residents who were concerned about the fate of several old trees dotting the stretch from Old Katol Naka.

    At 10am on Saturday, over 400 protesters accompanied by MLA Sudhakar Deshmukh, corporators from BJP and Congress gathered at a Ravi Nagar ground. District guardian minister Chandrashekar Bawankule too was present. Later, a delegation along with the political leaders met Gadkari at his Gokulpeth bungalow and sought his intervention as they were facing demolition of homes and shops.

    Gittikhadan Borgaon Friends Colony chief Vyari Sangh told TOI that the minister has accepted their demand. “The widening will start from New Katol Naka, Gadkari assured us,” he said.

    Gadkari himself couldn’t be reached for his comment. His personal assistant didn’t respond to TOI’s SMSes.

    An NHAI official associated with the project said the minister accepted the representation and discussed damage control measures. “The existing width of this road is 30 metres. NHAI wants to widen it to 45 metres to include service road for locals that will give them right of way as well as keep NHAI’s carriageway free of hindrances and check accidents,” he said.

    The official added that NHAI would start the proposed widening from Fetri somewhere at Outer Ring Road point if it has to exclude the city stretch. He said the NHAI did try to make a case for its project, which it believes was essential for development.

    The decision on the starting point of the widening project would be taken in a week, the official said.

    Meanwhile, many shops remained closed till 2pm on Day 2 of the bandh call given by the organization. This forced residents to travel to nearby localities to make their daily purchases of groceries and other items. As the news about positive outcome spread, several shops were opened by evening.

      NMC’s river cleanliness drive from April

      tnn | Mar 18, 2018, 05:47 IST
      Nagpur: The Nagpur Municipal Corporation is set to start the drive to clean three rivers — Nag, Pili and Pora — as well as nullahs from April 1st week. Municipal commissioner Ashwin Mudgal has directed the civic administration to be prepared for the monsoon season.

      Mudgal convened a review meeting of all the assistant municipal commissioners, health officials and other department officials on Saturday and directed them to start preparations to take the annual cleanliness drive. He also asked the administration to seek funds from Western Coalfields Limited, Manganese Ore India Limited and other big industrial houses of the city under corporate social funds.

      Following TOI-MT’s ‘Save Nag River — My City, My River’ campaign, NMC had launched a big drive on Nag river in May 2013. NMC had taken up a similar drive on Pili river in May 2014.

      Mudgal pointed out that on July 17 last year many areas were waterlogged. He asked the zonal assistant commissioners to take stock of those places to ensure there is no water accumulation this year. Mudgal also directed the administration to write to Metro railway authority and cement road contractors to ensure no water logging at their construction sites.

          NMC has no data of localities getting 24X7 water supply

          Proshun Chakraborty| TNN | Mar 21, 2018, 02:54 IST
          Congress corporators led by leader of opposition Tanaji Wanve protest over water crisis in many city areas out... Read More

          Nagpur: At a time when state CM Devendra Fadnavis has assured 24X7 water supply to 60% of the city areas having water network by December end this year, the water works department of the Nagpur Municipal Corporation has informed the general body that out of 68, only 16 command areas are getting 24X7 water supply.

          The project implemented by the NMC in 2011 is still not complete. Executive engineer of the NMC’s water works department Sanjay Gaikwad informed the general body that out of Rs387 crore sanctioned for the scheme, works worth Rs292 crore has been carried out.

          However, when senior Congress corporator Sandip Sahare sought details lists of the command areas and localities getting around the clock water, Gaikwad failed to provide them. As reported by TOI on March 5, even in Dharampeth zone, which is the city’s first zone to receive 24X7 supply under the pilot project, water is being supplied through tankers. Many corporators from BSP and Congress joined Sahare and started creating ruckus, following which the mayor adjourned the house.

          Congress corporator Neha Nikose, leader of opposition Tanaji Wanve and other Congress corporators staged a demonstration outside Town Hall in Mahal over the erratic supply in many localities in Prabhag number 2-A (north Nagpur). In a memorandum to Mudgal, she has demanded that the work of pipeline laying in Gaikwad layout, Sugat Nagar, Samtanagar etc be completed.

          The house cleared the proposal of water works department to entrust Wapcos Limited, a public sector enterprise under the aegis of the Union Ministry of Water Resources, to carry-out the Rs248 crore Amrut project in unauthorized layouts in the city.

          The NMC had three options to implement the Amrut project — give the work to Maharashtra Jeevan Pradihikaran (MJP), invite tenders or give the work to Wapcos. “The administration was not in favour of assigning the work to MJP, while the tendering procedure will further delay the work. So we have decided to entrust the work to Wapcos company which comes under union minister Nitin Gadkari,” said ruling party leader Sandip Joshi.

                Multilevel car parking, piped gas network mooted in Smart City areas

                Anjaya Anparthi| TNN | Mar 21, 2018, 03:02 IST
                Nagpur: Pardi, Bharatwada, Punapur and Bhandewadi are likely to get multilevel car parking, piped gas network, CCTVs, hi-tech police station etc under the Smart City project. The Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s (NMC) special purpose vehicle — the Nagpur Smart and Sustainable City Development Corporation Limited (NSSCDCL) — has proposed 25 types of developmental projects in these four underdeveloped areas covering 1,730 acres in East Nagpur.

                The NSSCDCL has finalized the draft town planning scheme (TPS) of Smart City’s area-based development (ABD) region comprising the four areas and submitted it to Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) for approval. Suggestions and objections will be invited on it after getting NIT’s nod. Then, it will be submitted to the state government for a final approval.

                The NIT board of trustees will meet on Friday in which the draft TPS is likely to be approved.

                Developmental works along Nag, Pili rivers and a nullah will be executed under the ‘Nirmal Nag River’ plan. The area where Nag and Pili rivers converge will be developed as a tourism spot. A 15-metre buffer zone has been proposed on either side for developing walking and cycling tracks, and greenery and recreational spots.

                To make Smart City area trench-less, all types of infrastructure projects like cement roads, storm water drains, sewage lines, gas network, street lights, ducting for power and optical fibre cables etc will be laid simultaneously.

                The total cost of the works proposed in ABD area will be around Rs876 crore. The NSSCDCL has received surplus funds for the project.

                  NMC to rope in another firm for property survey

                  Proshun Chakraborty| tnn | Mar 23, 2018, 05:45 IST
                  Nagpur: After failing to get all the properties in the city assessed in nearly three years of allotting the work of door-to-door survey to a private company, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is all set to rope in another private agency for the survey, GIS mapping and seamless integration of the properties with e-governance software of the civic body.

                  A proposal to entrust the work to Hyderabad agency M/s Anant Technology Private Limited will be tabled before the standing committee meeting convened on March 23. The NMC will pay Rs120 per unit (house) to the firm.

                  Presently, M/s Cybertech System and Software Limited is conducting the door-to-door survey of properties and it will continue its work. NMC had entrusted the job to the firm in July 2015 and the firm was supposed to complete the assessment process in two years. The firm was also given three-month extension twice. But it had failed miserably. The slow pace of survey has affected NMC’s property tax collection.

                  Of the 5.49 lakh properties in the city, till March 7 Cybertech Systems had surveyed only 3.83 lakh properties comprising 6,00,729 units. The appointment of new company will help the NMC to complete the assessment, said an official from the tax department.

                  The NMC has also started sending SMS reminders to property owners to pay taxes before March 31. In the last couple of days, the tax department had sent over 89,000 messages, the official told TOI.

                  The NMC has also given an ultimatum to all the 10 zonal assistant municipal commissioners (AMC) to achieve their property tax targets. Interestingly, though the financial year is about to end, the civic body is yet to distribute over 1,78,511 property tax invoices from where it can generate Rs185.77 crore revenue.

                  Following poor tax recovery, municipal commissioner Ashwin Mudgal has withheld the salaries of tax department staffers. Now, the tax department head office has given an ultimatum to the AMCs to complete the distribution of invoices before March 31.

                  According to sources, the already-understaffed tax department in all the 10 zones faces an uphill task. Against the need of 366 tax inspectors and collectors, the NMC has just 225 staffers.

                  As per NMC data, the city has 5,49,398 properties and considering the staff strength each employee has a target to cover 2,442 properties on an average. “It is a Herculean task,” said one of the staffers.

                  The tax department headed by assistant municipal commissioner Milind Meshram has already issued ultimatum to all the assistant municipal commissioners to ensure delivery of invoices before this month end.

                  As per data prepared by the department, there are around 7,592 property owners who have defaulted property tax above Rs25,000. Their collective outstanding is around Rs112.95 crore. Similarly, there are around 1,70,919 property owners who have defaulted tax below Rs25,000 and account for a collective outstanding of Rs72.82 crore.

                  Numbers Speak

                  Zones ——- --Defaulters

                  Lakadganj 33,964

                  Dhantoli 3,437

                  With just nine days left in the current fiscal, the civic administration will keep the tax collection facilities at all the 10 zonal offices and a counter at Civil Lines headquarters open during Sundays and other government declared holidays.

                    Metro to build 25-storey tower opp Yeshwant Stadium

                    Ashish Roy| TNN | Mar 23, 2018, 03:34 IST

                    Nagpur: Mahametro has decided to change the location of the highest building of the city from Munje Square to opposite Yeshwant Stadium in Dhantoli.

                    The 25-storey tower will be a part of the traffic and transport management centre (TTMC). Although the decision was taken more than a year ago, it has come to light after tender for construction of TTMC was floated.

                    Mahametro had earlier decided to house the Sitabuldi interchange station in a 25-storey building with floors over the station having hotels, multiplexes, malls, offices, etc. “When we started construction of the Sitabuldi station, we realized that it would require land acquisition and several banks and shops in the area would have to be razed. Moreover, Munje Square would have to closed for traffic for over a year. Underground parking too will not be possible at the site. So, we decided to change the plan. Now, the structure will only have one floor above the station for traffic control,” managing director Brijesh Dixit told TOI.

                    Mahametro had launched an architecture contest to design the Zero Mile and Sitabuldi interchange stations in May 2015. French firm Enia had bagged the job and designed the stations. The design for Zero Mile station still stands.

                    Mahametro project director Mahesh Kumar said that the TTMC would come up on Patwardhan Ground, which was spread over an area of around 20,000 square metre. “It will be connected with the station with an elevated skywalk. We will provide bus connectivity and parking in the TTMC. The construction will have a floor to space index (FSI) of 4 and will be spread over 9.83 lakh square feet. Some 2.92 lakh square feet will be dedicated to free parking. It will be a public private partnership (PPP) project,” he added.

                    Elaborating on the project, Kumar said that it would have three towers and cost Rs320 crore. “One tower will be 25 storey high while the remaining two will have 19 floors. All the towers will have retail mall on ground, first and second floors and small offices on third, fourth and fifth floors. A three-level multiplex has been envisaged above fifth floor in Tower 1 and fifteen floor of offices in Towers 1 and 3,” he added.

                    Kumar further said that the retail mall would have inline stores, food court, family entertainment centre, large format stores, supermarket, mini anchor fashion store, mini anchor for electronics and home decor, etc.

                    “The basement will be completely dedicated to parking. We will provide 600 bays for parking of cars, 1,050 bays for parking of motorcycles and 1,000 slots for bicycles,” he added.

                    The PPP operator will have to make the TTMC a green building with IGBC platinum rating. “The operator will landscape the promenade along Nag River in line with Nag riverfront development project. A landscaped public plaza in front of the TTMC will have to be created. Sun-cutting louvers on the façades, rainwater harvesting and public art will be the other features,” he further said.

                      Turning to nature solution to end water woes: Expert

                      Mohnish Nelarwar| TNN | Updated: Mar 24, 2018, 10:29 IST
                      Pradyumna Sahasrabhojanee speaks at water management workshop, on Thursday

                      NAGPUR: With the water crisis looming this summer, architect-cum-activist Pradyumna Sahasrabhojanee has proposed that the domestic sewage water can be treated at home.

                      Speaking at a lecture organized jointly by Tirpude College and India Peace Centre to celebrate World Water Day on Thursday, Sahasrabhojanee said, “I have commissioned a unit in the city which is being monitored. Sewage water can be treated at home instead of sending it to Bhandewadi plant and later release it into natural sources.”

                      According to him, the sewage treatment plant (STP) in Bhandewadi may not able to cope with the expansion of the city. “Where does the sewage water from places will go as the city will expand in the future? The ever-growing cities will put a load on STPs,” he said.

                      Sahasrabhojanee said that the water treated at STPs is supplied to industries and is mainly used to cooler machines in factories which is eventually converted into steam. This poses a problem to the farm sector since the same water can be used for crops, he added.

                      The city gets 750 MLD water 85% of which goes into sewage. The sewage water from houses is usually human excreta and water used for washing utensils and clothes. This can be treated at home,” said Sahasrabhojanee.

                      “There are two main challenges in water conservation — scarcity and pollution. Scarcity is caused by overuse of water in urban and rural areas and pollution through normal use. We are also at a risk of depleting thousand-year-old aquifers before finding a better solution to water shortage,” he added.

                      Sahasrabhojanee opined that the natural water cycle of evaporation, condensation and precipitation can be used as a basis for treating sewage water. He said this will save millions of rupees which are being invested in STPs.

                      “We have to turn to nature to solve our water problems. We have tried to implement solutions which have failed. Decentralizing treatment of sewage water and charging exiting natural sources with treated water will solve our problems,” he said.
