    Nanded leading in tree plantation drive

    Vijay Pinjarkar| tnn | Jul 3, 2018, 17:27 IST


    Nagpur: The 13 crore tree plantation drive initiated by forest minister Sudhir Mungantiwar resulted in 1.19 crore trees being planted on the second day on July 1. The state forest department has also gone digital to ensure transparency about the plantation.

    In the current drive, Nanded is leading by planting over 29.56 lakh seedlings on both forest and non-forest lands. It is followed by 6.32 lakh saplings in Chandrapur; 6.24 lakh in Latur, 5 lakh in Nashik, 4.95 lakh in Beed, and 4 lakh in Ahmednagar.

    Of the 1.19 crore saplings, 82.77 lakh have been planted by the forest department alone. PWD that felled large number of trees for road widening has a target to plant 14.52 lakh saplings but has planted just 4,000 in two days.

    Praveen Srivastava, additional principal chief conservator of forests (APCCF) for policy, planning and information technology, said the official website of the department — mahaforest.nic.in — has been upgraded to ensure transparency. People can log on with username as guest and Guest@123 as password and know the progress of the drive.

    “We have added new features that were not available during the earlier 2 crore and 4 crore tree plantation drive. One can now also upload their plantation videos on Mahaforest Greentube channel. These will be made live. It can be sent on greentube.mfd@gmail.com,” said Srivastava. During the last two years, the dashboard on websites only used to display the numbers of pits, target, seedlings planted by each agency and other details district-wise and statewise. Access to this information was only for department users.

    When asked about the plantation and survival scenario of earlier drives, Srivastava said information was available on the website mrsac.government.gov.in. “We need some time to club it with forest department’s website so entire information is shared at one place,” he added. Srivastava said drones have been introduced for the first time to monitor plantations. The pictures captured by drones will also be available at the website.

      Threatened by sand mafia, says Chimur’s BJP MLA

      Ramu Bhagwat| tnn | Jul 3, 2018, 17:29 IST
      Nagpur: BJP legislator from Chimur, Kirtikumar (Bunty) Bhangadia, has claimed to have received repeated threats to life from a sand contractor operating in his constituency. The latest threat message was conveyed on Sunday to the editor of the Marathi newspaper that the Bhangadia family runs in Vidarbha.

      The MLA on Monday filed a complaint with the SPs of Chandrapur and Bhandara giving all details of how sand contractor Dhanraj Mungle issued threats to him through his close associates after 15 to 20 trucks illegally ferrying sand without paying royalty and evading government levies were seized by the police acting on Bhangadia’s complaints.

      “It is common knowledge that 400 to 500 trucks laden with smuggled sand move between 8 and 10pm every day through Chimur, Brahmapuri, Sindewahi areas. The state is losing huge revenue. The sand mafia is excavating sand using excavators and even overloading the trucks. Many youths have died in road accidents involving these sand trucks on Nagbhid-Brahmapuri road in my constituency. As an MLA, it is my duty to address the problem.

      “On receiving a tip off, I alerted the DSPs of Chandrapur and Bhandara about the illegal sand movement on May 11 midnight. Responding to it, the Brahmapuri police managed to seize 15 to 20 trucks that night. These trucks belonged to Mungle who is a big sand smuggler,” Bhangadia told ToI.

      He explained that the threat was real as only last week another sand smuggler had attempted to burn alive a tehsildar of Chimur who had tried to stop the sand racket.

      “Mungle first told my associate Muntazir Lakhani that it would be easy to bump off any person with a truck on the Nagpur-Chimur Road and asked him to warn me to desist from any moves against sand mafia. But, on Sunday, when Mungle came all the way to Nagpur and met Bhaskar Londhe (editor and CEO of Marathi newspaper Lokshahi Varta) to convey the same intimidatory message again, I was shocked,” said the MLA.

      Bhangadia has sought appropriate action against Mungle whose excavator machines was earlier seized by the police in March. He has also intimated Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Speaker of the state Assembly about the threatening messages.

        CM ready for probe into Navi Mumbai land deal

        Ramu Bhagwat| TNN | Jul 4, 2018, 03:36 IST


        Nagpur: Refuting allegations of a Rs1,700-crore scam in Navi Mumbai land earmarked for rehabilitation of Koyna dam oustees, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Tuesday that his government was ready to face any type of probe that the opposition would seek.

        The opposition had alleged that 24 acres of CIDCO land in Navi Mumbai valued at Rs1,700 crore was transferred to a private builder for a paltry sum by duping eight project-hit families of Koyna dam. Leader of opposition, Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil, had demanded a high court-monitored probe into the deal. Fadnavis said there was absolutely no wrongdoing in land transfers, which were handled by the district collector.

        “The matter is lingering for over two decades. The collector has powers to allot land to the people displaced by the dam project. After the land was handed over to the project-affected persons, they had entered into deals with builders to sell their lands and the high court had allowed such deals. Over the years, many such plots were sold by the oustees and the government has nothing to do with it,” Fadnavis said.

        Fadnavis also rubbished Vikhe-Patil’s allegation that the chief minister was involved in the ‘scam’ as he also held urban development portfolio. “The land transfer is effected by the collector and these cases do no not even come before the CM or the urban development department,” Fadnavis said, denying that the deals were done hurriedly in a few hours.

        The CM said his government was ready to face the opposition, which, according to him, had resorted to rumour mongering through media. “Spreading rumours and provocative messages on social media is a criminal offence. After lynching of five innocent persons in Dhule, the police have launched a drive against those spreading rumours. But political rumours spread by the opposition will be dealt with politically,” he said.

        Denying opposition’s claims that no farmer had received benefits of farm loan waiver or compensation for Kharif crop loss, he said the waiver scheme was in progress and would continue till the last eligible claimant was paid off. He said most of the waiver cases were settled and now one-time settlement cases were being processed.

        He also claimed that the opposition had no moral right to criticize tur, chana dal procurement policy. The CM said in 14 years between 2001 and 2014, the Congress-led government had procured tur dal worth only Rs426 crore, while in three years, the under current government, pulses and oilseeds procurement hit a record of Rs8,000 crore.

        “In fact, we had no place left to store and had to take private godowns on lease to keep 3 lakh metric tonnes of pulses. Those farmers whose tur could not be procured were given Rs1,000 per quintal as compensation,” he said.

        Fadnavis added that the probe into irrigation scams was progressing well, though the pace was slow because of voluminous reports that need to be examined.

          NMRDA issues notices to 29 unauthorized layouts

          Anjaya Anparthi| TNN | Jul 4, 2018, 03:37 IST


          Nagpur: The Nagpur Metropolitan Region Development Authority (NMRDA) has issued notices to 29 unauthorized layouts that have come up without any sanctions in Metro Region. Notices have also been issued to another 140 unauthorized buildings, taking the total to 1,468 from earlier count of 1,328 such structures.

          TOI had on May 12 reported that 1,328 unauthorized buildings including resorts, water parks, open garden restaurants etc received notices in Metro region. Taking note of TOI’s report, leader of opposition in legislative assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, deputy leader Vijay Wadettiwar, and other Congress MLAs submitted LAQ for monsoon session slated to begin in the city from Wednesday.

          NMRDA official told TOI the 29 unauthorized layouts comprise hundreds of plots and are situated across the Metro region. “Some 18 unauthorized layouts were identified in East division in Kamptee tehsil. Similarly, six unauthorized layouts were found in West division in Nagpur (rural), Kalmeshwar and Hingna tehsils, one in North division in Kamptee tehsil, and four in South division in Nagpur (rural) and Kamptee tehsils. Directives have been issued not to sell any plots in these unauthorized layouts,” he said.

          The official added a decision on whether to regularize these unauthorized layouts will be taken on receiving applications from the owners. “Layouts in residential zone will be regularized. Residential usage is allowed within 750 meters from gaothan area for villages with population of less than 5,000, and 1km in case population more than 5,000,” he said.

          As per NMRDA data, applications from owners of 310 of total 1,468 unauthorized buildings have been received for regularization under the state government’s special scheme. “Action will be taken against remaining unauthorized buildings in case they do not apply for regularization,” NMRDA officials said.

          At present, NMRDA is searching for only unauthorized residential flat schemes and commercial complexes or ventures. Probably from next year, NMRDA will cover all types of unauthorized constructions.

          Still, NMRDA has received applications for regularization of 3,895 unauthorized residential buildings as the government’s special scheme will end on October 31.

          Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s (NMC) fire and emergency services department has also started to serve notices to 1,468 unauthorized buildings.

            Corporator’s hubby ‘assaults’ civic official

            Proshun Chakraborty| TNN | Jul 4, 2018, 03:44 IST

            Nagpur: A civic anti-encroachment drive took an ugly turn in Hanuman Nagar zone on Tuesday when nuisance detection squad zonal leader Sudhir Sudke was manhandled by Parshu Thakur for taking action against a builder for encroaching on the main road. Thakur is the husband of BJP corporator Rupali who is also the chairperson of the zone.

            NDS commandant Veersen Tambe told TOI that retired Indian army subhedar Sudke, who was heading the squad, had issued a show cause notice to one Rajubhau Rahate for dumping construction material like sand and bricks on the main road. He was given 48 hours to clear it. As Rahate failed to remove the material, Sudke issued a challan and collected a fine of Rs2,000 from him.

            At around 11.50am, Thakur along with some others reached the zone office and allegedly started abusing Sudke. “Soon, Thakur grabbed him by the collar and threatened him of dire consequences for penalizing Rahate,” said Tambe.

            Sudke reported the incident to Tambe who passed on the information to NMC’s additional municipal commissioner Ravindra Kumbhare, deputy municipal commissioner Jayant Dandegaokar and health officer (sanitation) Dr Pradip Dasarwar. They asked him to lodge a police complaint.

            When Sudke went to Hudkeshwar police station, the cops tried to persuade him to arrive at a compromise with Thakur. Hudkeshwar police station’s senior police inspector SB Mane confirmed the incident but said no complaint has been filed. Mane did not say why no FIR was filed till 8pm.

            Admitting that he had got into an argument with Sudke, Thakur said, “He was collecting bribes. I have informed the zone’s assistant municipal commissioner Raju Bhivgade about it.”

              Tipeshwar resort owners seek min’s help to regularize structures

              Vijay Pinjarkar| TNN | Jul 4, 2018, 03:44 IST

              Nagpur: Resort owners, who constructed lodges without permission in eco-sensitive zone (ESZ) of Tipeshwar Wildlife Sanctuary, near Pandharkawda, on Monday sought intervention of minister of state for tourism, energy and FDA Madan Yerawar to regularize their structures.

              These resort owners have created a fait accompli situation and are now seeking regularization of the structures from the forest and revenue department. On Monday, Yerawar called a meeting of forest and revenue department officials to sort out the issue and inquired how these resorts can be termed ‘illegal’.

              Udaykrishnan Reddy of Hyderabad and Khamir Joshi of Gujarat have constructed concrete structures on 5 acre land, about 100 metre from Sunna gate of the park, and set up 11 villas on 33 acre property at Marath Wakodi, 4.5km from the park boundary in ESZ, respectively.

              Talking to TOI, Yerawar said, “The two investors first constructed these structures and are now seeking NOCs from respective departments. But, I’ve no vested interest and law of land should be followed. I leave it to the concerned officials to do what is right.”

              TOI was first to report the issue on April 4. Pandharkawda sub-divisional officer (SDO) Buvenswari S said that both the parties had not sought permission before constructing the lodges. “They have submitted applications now. As both the constructions fall in the ESZ, I will forward them to the monitoring committee headed by the district collector,” she said.

              Sources said the SDO has issued notice to both the resort owners to stop work immediately.

              The lodges were constructed despite Tipeshwar ESZ notification (now draft) stating, “Until the zonal master plan is approved, development for tourism and expansion of existing tourism activities shall be permitted by the regulatory authorities concerned based on the actual site specific scrutiny and recommendation of the monitoring committee and no new hotel/resort or commercial establishments construction is permitted within ESZ area.”

              Tipeshwar draft notification was re-issued on January 17, 2018, but prior to that the first draft was issued on January 7, 2016, when the owners bought the lands. Till a final notification is issued by the MoEFCC, as per Supreme Court orders, the ESZ is considered 10km from the boundary of the park.

              Divisional forest officer (wildlife) Pramod Panchbhai said that the violation is about EPA, 1986 and hence the territorial and revenue department officials have to act.

              On the contrary, Pandharkawda deputy conservator (DyCF) KM Abharna said, “Where it is written that EPA violations are to be dealt with by territorial officials only? SC directions should be respected in right spirit.”

              “The resort owners moved for permissions after TOI report in April. Now they are in a hurry as Tipeshwar final notification may be out any time. Though resort in Sunna had NA and conditional wildlife NOC, which barred the owner from making pucca constructions. Yet, concrete structure was made and a bore has also been dug in a perineal nullah coming from the sanctuary,” said Abharna.

              She said in Marath Wakodi too constructions are close to reserve forest. The villas have been fenced blocking the corridor. “During inspection there was huge difference in plan and actual construction,” said Abharna.

              Resort owner Reddy said that mistakes had taken place and construction was done without SDO permission. “But this was done unintentionally. I have temporary tents and my aim is to provide employment to the locals. I’m ready to abide by law,” Reddy said.

                Metro trial run on Hingna route by June next year

                tnn | Jul 4, 2018, 03:45 IST
                Mahametro managing director Brijesh Dixit performs puja of construction works, on Tuesday

                Nagpur: MahaMetro Nagpur’s Hingna route will be ready for trial run by June next year, according to managing director Brijesh Dixit. Reach-3, the section under which Hingna route comes, will have an added attraction for commuters and tourists with an almost 1km long viewing gallery facing Ambazari lake.

                The gallery between Ambazari and Subhash Nagar stations will be covered by glass from both sides. All the stations on Reach-3 will be designed in line with ‘aqua’ theme and Metro officials believe the viewing gallery will be a major attraction for tourists.

                Interacting with media during a ceremonial work launch event on Tuesday, Dixit said Subhash Nagar station will be completed within six months after which process for the trial run will be initiated.

                At Subhash Nagar station site, system work will commence at telecom equipment room, signalling equipment room, UPS battery room, ancillary sub-station and UG water tank and pump room. Similar work would also commence at telecom equipment room, signalling equipment room, UPS battery room and UG water tank and pump room at Lokmanya Nagar station.

                Metro has also successfully tested movement of Buland — the shunter engine — for the first time on an elevated section of the north-south corridor. With Buland moving successfully on elevated track, it becomes clear that the trains can run smoothly in that portion as well. The shunter engine was tested on the elevated track from Airport South to Airport Metro Station and travelled a distance of around 1.5km. Metro will soon test other sections of elevated tracks near Airport T-Point and further, in the coming days. Buland’s testing has signalled completion of track work between Airport South and Airport Metro stations in Reach-I.

                The shunter engine is normally used for maintenance purpose and was initially tested in the priority section between Khapri and Airport South Metro stations. The testing of Buland and subsequent granting of certificate by the commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) paved the way for the launch of `Joyride’ in that segment.

                  Dream of planting 50 crore saplings in sight: CM

                  tnn | Jul 4, 2018, 03:47 IST
                  Artistes perform during ‘Vruksh Dindi’ show, organized by Green Earth Organization, at Deshpande Hall, Civil Lines, on Tuesday

                  Nagpur: Nobody took the state government seriously when it announced in 2015 plans to plant 50 crore saplings, but today, the dream looks a certainty with the way the plantations are taking place, said chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, on Tuesday.

                  Speaking at the concluding function of ‘Vruksh Dindi’, conducted by Green Earth Organization at Vasantrao Deshpande Hall, Fadnavis said, “11 crore trees have so far been planted to make Maharashtra the greenest state. The saplings are geo-tracked with the aid of satellites which gives real time information about their growth. We also plan to release a half-yearly progress video of the saplings on social media.”

                  Forest minister Sudhir Mungantiwar attended the programme.

                  With a vow of planting 13 crore trees by the end of this year, Green Earth Organization carried out a weeklong mass plantation drive, that began on June 28.

                  Green Earth Organization, headed by MLA Snil Sule, is a pioneer establishment that has been holding mass tree plantation drives all over Vidarbha since 2016. It has successfully planted over 14 crore saplings in Bhandara, Gadchiroli, Chandrapur and Gondia districts till date. In the process, it created five records and found a place in the Limca Book.

                  Addressing the gathering, Sule said, “Over 5 crore saplings were planted since the start of this year. We aim to take this figure to 13 crore. Not only just planting trees, nourishing them is equally important so that they grow strong. For this, we need citizens to act with a sense of responsibility and help save trees.”

                  The saplings that the organization has planted under ‘Vruksh Dind’ are being looked after by villagers. Nearly 85% of saplings have survived and are growing fast, said Sule.

                  The 45-minute ceremony, that got delayed by over two hours, talked about the birth of the foundation and how it has grown over the years.

                  Performing artistes from Asar Foundation, Wardha, highlighted the various benefits of tree plantation before the start of the programme. The event ended with the audience pledging to plant and protect more trees in their vicinity and at empty spots.

                    New advanced system to reduce farm power failures

                    Ashish Roy| tnn | Jul 4, 2018, 05:08 IST

                    Nagpur: In order to reduce extremely high number of complaints of farm transformer breakdowns, Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (MSEDCL) has decided to go in for an advanced system — high voltage distribution system (HVDS). The are a number of advantages of this system — lesser number of breakdowns, lower chances of electrocution and lower distribution losses.

                    An official in MSEDCL said that farm pump transformers were supplied power through long low tension (LT) lines. “With LT lines, low voltage and frequent breakdowns are a frequent problem. In addition, there is problem of hooking,” he said.

                    In December 2017, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and energy minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule had directed MSEDCL to go in for HVDS. The formalities have been completed and tenders have been floated for installation of HVDS.

                    MSEDCL plans to provide power to 2.24 lakh farmers, who had submitted applications for connections by March 2018, through HVDS. The government has sanctioned about Rs5,000 crore for this. Of this, about Rs4,500 crore is for HVDS and about Rs500 crore for 226 new substations. Of the Rs5,000 crore, Rs2,250 crore has been sanctioned from Vidarbha Marathwada Special Package and rest will be market borrowing.

                    Elaborating on the advantages of HVDS, the official said, “The quantum of current flowing in the HVDS feeder will be 25 times less than ordinary feeders. This will ensure lower distribution loss and longevity of transformers. The farmers will get good quality and uninterrupted power supply.”

                    “The number of electrocutions will reduce sharply as HVDS has circuit breakers at substations. If the cable snaps, the power supply automatically switches off,” said the official.

                    It is not possible to draw power through hooking from HVDS. The official said, “Under HVDS, we will install transformers near wells of a farmer so that there is no need for LT system. The transformer capacity will depend on the power rating of the farm pump it has to supply.”

                    The electricity meter will be installed on the transformer so that the reading is perfect and energy audit is easier.
