    Neeri to use its technology for treating sewage in Alappuzha

    Manka Behl| tnn | Mar 25, 2018, 03:28 IST


    Nagpur: Absence of a proper sewerage and waste disposal system in Alappuzha in Kerala has not just become a threat for its waterways but also to the Vembanad lake which is known as the largest ecosystem in South India. The problem will now be tackled scientifically by Nagpur-based CSIR-National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (Neeri).

    As per a recent memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the Kerala Institute of Local Administration (KILA) and Neeri, the latter will provide technical support in treating sewage.

    According to Neeri scientists, prominent canals of the region — Vada and Commercial — are completely covered with water hyacinth.

    “Waste that people are discharging from their washing areas, kitchens and septic tanks is going into the canals where most of the drains meet. This is the reason behind growth of hyacinth which is leading to eutrophication of canals which kills the aquatic system,” said Ritesh Vijay, the principal scientist at Neeri’s centre or strategic urban management and director’s technical cell, who recently visited Alappuzha for spot inspection.

    The two canals go on to meet Vembanad lake, a popular backwater tourist destination. “The pollution is a major threat for the lake too. Besides, these canals would be used for navigation purposes,” said Vijay.

    Various studies done in the past reveal that sewage and plastic waste, dumped into the waterways, is polluting the water quality of the region.

    Neeri will be using its patented technology of phytorid wastewater treatment to revive the canals. The technology uses specific plants to absorb nutrients directly from waste water. “We plan to install phytorids at the land adjacent to canals. The drain water will be first treated and then can be reused for gardening or floriculture. Our aim will be to ensure that only treated water enters the canals to increase the dilution,” said Vijay.

    According to him, removing hyacinth is not a permanent solution as they will keep growing. “The canals can only be cleaned if sewage is treated at the source,” he added. Neeri will first carry out a pilot experiment at one location.

    The phytorid technology involves a constructed wetland exclusively designed for treatment of municipal, urban, agricultural and industrial wastewater. The organic solution is removed by bacteria and the nutrients are absorbed by specific plants.

    “The plant uses porous media such as crushed bricks, gravel and stones for filtration. To avoid choking, we do not use soil. The quality of treated water is excellent, it meets the prescribed and amended norms of the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB),” said Vijay.

    THE PLAN

    - Neeri to provide technical support to KILA for treating sewage

    - Two canals are highly polluted due to discharge of sewage

    - Neeri will use phytorid technology to treat sewage

    - Technology involves a constructed wetland exclusively designed for treatment of waste water

    - It requires minimum electricity and mechanical requirement

      Cement roads coming up with ‘illegal’ sand, concrete

      Anjaya Anparthi| TNN | Mar 26, 2018, 03:38 IST


      Nagpur: In an alleged nexus between the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) and its contractors, the civic body, which has been constructing cement concrete roads since 2011, has neither paid royalty of minerals nor deposited the receipts of royalty with the district administration, hinting towards major evasion of royalty and “illegal” excavation of sand mining going on unabated in the district.

      Minerals — sand and concrete — are one of the major components of cement road construction. As per the state government’s norms, the NMC is supposed to recover royalty for minerals before release of payments to contractors. Then the civic body has to pay the royalty amount to the district administration. Accordingly, the NMC incorporate these conditions in the agreements with all contractors involved in executing the cement road works.

      The NMC started cement road project phase-I worth Rs123 crore in June 2011. The works on several internal roads have already been completed while some of them are still under construction, which cost over Rs50 crore. The cement road project phase-II worth Rs324 crore commenced in March 2016, taking the total cost of concretization work to around Rs500 crore.

      Few days ago, a team of police and the revenue departments seized a huge quantum of sand stored by one of the cement road works’ contractors, Abhi Engineering Corporation, on the Kamptee Road. A district administration official said the major quantum of the stored stand was excavated in an unauthorized manner. “Directives have been given to Kamptee tehsildar to initiate action against the firm and persons involved,” he said.

      According to an information collected through RTI by activist Suraj Lolge from NMC, the civic body has no records of any documents of royalty submitted by Abhi Engineering Corporation.

      Ajju Vijayvargiya of Abhi Engineering said there is no evasion of royalty and issue of sand excavation in an unauthorized manner does not arise. “Our work is the best in the project. We have been paying the royalty promptly with the NMC. I will have to check what exactly the information is given under RTI Act by the NMC,” he said.

      Vijayvargiya also denied any problems with the sand stored by his firm on the Kamptee Road.

      The district administration official further said the NMC has not deposited a single penny of royalty in these seven years. “We received complaints from activists and issued letters to the NMC time and again asking it to deposit the royalty and the receipts but got no response. Even, collector Sachin Kurve consulted the NMC and asked to ensure compliance of the norms,” he said.

      As per data available from the NMC, payments of over Rs180 crore have been released to contractors.

      Lolge said the NMC in nexus with few contractors has been encouraging utilization of sand and metal excavated in an unauthorized manner and also evading royalty. “The NMC did not deduct royalty amount from contractors’ bills violating the norms. The district administration banned the operation of all sand ghats last year and continued with it this year also. But sand mining is still continue. The NMC officials are delaying information under RTI to hide all these violations. Detailed inquiry should be done followed by action against the officials and the contractors. I have lodged a complaint with Kurve also who assured of necessary action,” Lolge said.

      Municipal commissioner Ashwin Mudgal said directives have been given to all contractors and their associations to get the royalty clearance certificate from the district administration. “I think some contractors have already obtained the certificate. We will take action if contractors fail to comply with the directives,” he said.

          FIR in case of faulty DPR: Gadkari

          TNN | Mar 26, 2018, 03:40 IST
          Nagpur: Union minister for surface transport Nitin Gadkari, during his speech at the bhoomipujan of ‘Police Bhavan’ in Civil Lines on Sunday, said FIR would be filed against officials responsible for a faulty detailed project report (DPR) leading to fatal accident(s).

            Nagpur: Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday said 1,500 personnel of city police would get lands for building houses. The CM made the announcement while addressing the gathering at the ‘bhoomipoojan’ ceremony of the ‘Police Bhavan’ at the premises of the commissionerate at Civil Lines. He also said various schemes including health care for cops, skill development for their families and also reducing the duty hours are in the pipeline.

            Fadnavis, present along with union minister Nitin Gadkari, guardian minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Addl Chief Secretary (Home) SK Shrivastava, DGP Satish Mathur and others at the programme, also said police department has been accorded free hands to fill up their vacancies. “In three years, around 30,000 personnel have been recruited in different ranks,” said the CM. He also indicated his government is keen to ensure the deficit in the police manpower is eliminated.

            Fadnavis also pointed out that Maharashtra is the first state where CCTNS implementations and e-complaints have been dually implemented. He said CCTNS has empowered police through creation of a central database which enables a countrywide search on information regarding any criminal. On the other hand, e-complaints have helped citizens to file their grievances from the comfort of their homes which also raises the accountability of the police department.

            Fadnavis, during the address, also underlined hordes of beneficial and welfare related plans for the police department including restricting duties to eight hours which have been implemented in around 80 police stations in Mumbai. “Medical check ups are done for cops above 40 years of age. We are now trying to reduce their stresses,” he said. “Skill developments have been introduced for the family members of the police personnel including women,” he said.

            The chief minister also said that the police personnel would now get Rs20 lakh loans to build their houses apart from another Rs2.50 lakh from Pradhan Mantri Abas Yojana. “After service, the cops will not be deprived of a shelter of their own,” he said.

            Fadnavis said the police department needs to get smarter and tech-savvy to stay one step ahead of the criminals who are fast switching to modern techniques to beat the investigating agencies. “The CCTV cameras in city would now act as the third eye of the cops through which an e-challan can be sent to the doorstep of the violator even if there is no cop present on the road,” he said.

            DG Mathur, during speech, requested to increase the budgetary allocations from Rs350 crores to Rs1,000 for various schemes. ACS (Home) informed Nagpur police are set to get land in MIHAN for housing.

                HC orders demolition of canteen, servants quarters on old premises within 48 hours

                Vaibhav Ganjapure| tnn | Mar 27, 2018, 05:49 IST


                Nagpur: Dismissing Archeological Survey of India’s (ASI) contention that entire area of ‘old HC building’ is a ‘monumental structure’, the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court on Monday directed state PWD to demolish canteen and servants quarters on the premises within 48 hours to create parking space. The government was told to furnish compliance report by Wednesday.

                The court’s directives came while hearing a PIL (No 67/2015) by petitioner Manoj Sable through counsel Shreerang Bhandarkar, praying for directives to the PWD for construction of additional infrastructure like courts and bar rooms at ‘Suyog’ building premises for convenience of lawyers and litigants.

                Earlier, assistant solicitor general Ulhas Aurangabadkar contended that entire old HC building area spread on about 18,200 square metres is declared as monumental structure and can’t be demolished.

                “We find that contention is without any substance. It is only an old HC building, which can be considered as either monumental or heritage structure. If ASI contention is to be accepted, the servants quarters would also be considered as monumental or heritage structure,” a division bench comprising justices Bhushan Gavai and Murlidhar Giratkar stated.

                The judges asked additional government pleader Deepak Thakre to communicate the order to various authorities for compliance.

                Sudhir Puranik, who appeared for the Nagpur Municipal Corporation, one of the respondents in the case.

                  Despite general body's order, Nagpur civic body fails to reduce tax of one lakh properties

                  In an another development, the department has taken a decision to issue demand notes of two years at a time to around 3 lakh properties in the upcoming fiscalAnjaya Anparthi | TNN | March 28, 2018, 14:00 IST

                  NAGPUR: The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) property tax department has yet not reduced the tax of around 1 lakh properties despite orders of the general body seven months ago.

                  In an another development, the department has taken a decision to issue demand notes of two years at a time to around 3 lakh properties in the upcoming fiscal.

                  The NMC had introduced new property tax system— ready reckoner value + rent chart— from April 1, 2015. The tax of 5.50 lakh properties was supposed to be revised after a revaluation drive. The property tax department miserably failed to launch the revaluation drive in 2015-16 and 2016-17 financial years.

                  However, the department revised tax of 1.36 lakh consumers as per the new tax system in 2015-16 with effect from April 1, 2015. The tax of around 1 lakh residential and commercial properties was increased 2 to 5 times. The department planned to recover the difference amount of two years from the remaining 4.14 lakh properties after completion of the revaluation drive.

                  Ruling party leader Sandip Joshi and corporator Pravin Datke, also a former mayor, had tabled a proposal in the general body on July 20, 2017, seeking revision in effective date of new tax system. Accordingly, the general body had passed a resolution directing the department to implement new tax system from April 1, 2017.

                  Joshi told TOI that the property tax department was directed very clearly to adjust revised tax in the following property tax bills. “System should be the same for all the taxpayers. The department was supposed to calculate the revised tax amount and deduct it in the bills of 2017-18. I will look into the matter and ensure all the taxpayers get relief,” he said.

                  The NMC has already started to distribute demand notes for 2017-18 since the last couple of months. Owners of around 1 lakh properties did not get any relief.

                  A prime example is a commercial property situated in Dharampeth and a residential property in Panchpaoli. Tax of commercial property was Rs20,061 and was revised to Rs78,243 in 2015-16 as per new tax system. The property owner did not receive any notice from the NMC informing about the revision. Even demand note of 2015-16 and 2016-17 sent to the owner was not as per the revised tax amount. Few days ago, the owner received a notice warning of auction of property. The department said there was arrears of Rs1,92,989 on the property, despite the owner paying the taxes of 2015-16 and 2016-17 on time.

                  Similarly, tax of residential property of Panchpaoli was revised to Rs1,786 from Rs859 in 2015-16. The owner got demand note few days ago. There was no reduction in the tax amount.

                  An official from the department said the general body’s decision was not clear on adjusting the revised tax amount. “Also, the general body changed tax system of rental properties on July 20, 2017. Tax of rental properties was reduced to a great extent. We will have to increase tax of these rental properties if the general body’s order on July 20, 2017 is considered,” he said.

                  As per the new tax system, the department was supposed to prepare and distribute demand notes to 5.50 lakh properties by March 31. As on date, demand notes to 2.50 lakh properties have been distributed. Therefore, the department has taken a decision to include tax of 2017-18 and 2018-19 in demand notes that will be distributed after April 1. Around 3 lakh taxpayers will have to pay tax of two years that too as per the new system. At the same time, the department has proposed not to levy interest of 2% per month from taxpayers who did not receive demand notes in 2017-18.

                    Nagpur civic body gives six months to regularize unauthorized constructions

                    NMC official said around 7,000 properties will benefit from the decision. The civic body is expected to earn Rs100 crore from the compounding feesProshun Chakraborty | TNN | April 06, 2018, 17:00 IST


                    NAGPUR: In some good news for property owners, especially residential complexes, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is all set to regularize unauthorized constructions. NMC has given six months to submit applications to compound illegal buildings.

                    NMC official said around 7,000 properties will benefit from the decision. The civic body is expected to earn Rs100 crore from the compounding fees.

                    Owners of illegal properties in the city will be able to get them regularized till October 4, according to the new state government directives. NMC will start accepting proposals from Thursday itself, and will accept applications till October 4.

                    The state urban development department in October 2017 had issued rules to regularize illegal structures on payment of a penalty. Illegal constructions done before December 31, 2015, in residential, commercial and industrial zones would be considered declared as “compounded structure” on payment of compounding charges.

                    The owners would also have to submit a sanctioned map, along with details of property tax, sewerage tax, and penalty tax on illegal construction. A licensed architect has to give a stability certificate for the illegal construction. Civic officials said that constructions would be regularized for five floors (15 metres), and if it is more than five floors, no-objection certificate would be required from the fire brigade department.

                    “Decision on the proposals submitted to us will be taken on case by case basis. The compounding fees will be decided after considering the status of the building, and may vary for each case,” said a senior official from the NMC’s town planning department.

                    NMC will accept the compounding structure applications from citizens and developers in the prescribed format through architect/license engineers /surveyor, along with relevant documents and non-refundable scrutiny fee of Re1 per square feet up to 2,500 square feet, and Rs2 per square feet for construction area above 2,500 square feet, with four copies of maps with applicant, Architect’s Licence, Engineer’s Surveyor Signature at the office of the Nagpur Municipal Corporation, Town Planning Department, Civil Lines.

                    Applications not received in the prescribed format along with all relevant documents will be rejected. Also, applications received after 5.45pm, October 4, 2018, will not be entertained. The form has been uploaded on NMC’s website www.nmcnagpur.gov.in.

                      NMC likely to get only 50% of raw drinking water demand

                      Anjaya Anparthi| TNN | Apr 7, 2018, 03:55 IST


                      Nagpur: The city is likely to face severe water crisis due to Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s (NMC) lack of control over water supply and utilization. The water resources department (WRD) is likely to allot only 50% of city’s total raw drinking water demand. The Maharashtra Water Resources Regulatory Authority (MWRRA) will take a final decision in a hearing on April 17.

                      Former MLA from Ramtek Ashish Jaiswal had filed a petition challenging WRD’s water reservation to municipal bodies, industries and irrigation from Totladoh (Pench) irrigation reservoir. On March 15, MWRRA had directed WRD to re-calculate water eligibility and reservation of NMC after taking it into confidence.

                      WRD has convened a meeting with NMC on April 3. Sources from NMC and WRD said city’s raw drinking water entitlement is likely to be calculated at 139 million meter cube (MMC). “NMC had demanded 269.7 MMC; 211.7 from Totladoh and 58 MMC from Kanhan river. Existing NMC reservation is 172.5MMC; 114.5MMC from Totladoh and 58 MMC from Kanhan. WRD’s revised entitlement is likely to be a lot less, even less than 139 MMC,” sources said.

                      “NMC has now even bifurcated water for residential and non-residential consumers, to get higher allocation. NMC has demanded 29.23MMC reservation from non-residential quota, and special allocation of 50LPCD for 120 days of summer,” sources said. However, NMC will have to pay higher charges for non-residential quota.

                      If MWRRA goes by WRD’s revised calculations, NMC will not have drinking water from June to October.

                      NMC has been supplying over double the required water in the city for last many decades, with no track of 60% of the supply. Also, NMC is not taking water conservation measures, or using the 10 city lakes.
