    MIL to survey illegal bldgs near airport

    Ashish Roy | tnn | Jul 26, 2018, 05:47 IST



    Nagpur: Unfazed by non-cooperation by Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), Mihan India Limited (MIL) has decided to conduct another survey of illegal buildings near airport that come in way of aircraft landing.

    After the survey report is available, notices will issued to all such buildings and the owners will be asked to demolish the extra construction.

    “Airport Authority of India (AAI) has empanelled surveyors. We will contact one of the surveyors and give it the contract. The survey should take 15 to 20 days,” said a source in MIL.

    MIL had earlier done a survey of such buildings and found out that some 15 of them were constructed more than the permissible height. These were mostly located in Jaitala area and one on Wardha Road.

    The source said that unless the extra construction was demolished, the length of one of the runways will have to reduced by 560 metre. “The present length of the runway is 3,200m. This means that big aircraft can’t land on it. This will adversely affect expansion of the airport,” he added.

    Pilots frequently complain that due to high buildings near the airport their ground proximity warning (GPW) becomes activated. MIL has maintained a record of such complaints.

    The airport has two runways — 1-4 and 3-2. It is the 3-2 runway which has been affected by the illegal buildings. MIL will prohibit landing of aircraft like Boeing 737 and Airbus 320 on this runway.

    MIL had requested NMC to raze the illegal constructions. However, the municipal commissioner flatly refused saying that it was not his job. The airport agency then wrote to director general of civil aviation (DGCA) seeking its intervention but is yet to get any response.

    “If DGCA does not respond, we will urge civil aviation ministry to direct NMC to raze the constructions,” said the source.

    The reason for NMC’s refusal is due to grey area in DGCA Demolition Rules, 1994. The rules state that the illegal constructions have to be razed but do not specify who is to do the job. MIL says that it does not have the machinery to raze the constructions and only civic agencies like NMC can do the job. Moreover, MIL officials say that if a building is illegal, NMC has to demolish it even otherwise.

      Online building plan sanction goes live, initial glitches exist

      tnn | Jul 26, 2018, 05:52 IST



      Nagpur: The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) launched the Building Plan Management System (BPMS) on Wednesday, an online portal for architects and civil engineers to submit building plans to get sanction. This system, launched under Central government’s ‘Ease of Doing Business’ initiative, intends to curb underhand dealings, and sanction all plans within 30 days of submission.

      The system is currently operating in 220 councils and ‘D’ Grade corporations, and NMC has become the first in the state among all ‘A’ and ‘B’ grade municipal corporations to adopt it.

      Till date, some 65 architects and civil engineers from the city have registered on the portal, out of the over 2,000 professionals practicing currently. “The response to BPMS might be need based, and architects might be waiting for feedback on the software,” said chairman of Nagpur chapter of Indian Institute of Architects (IIA) Paramjeet Singh Ahuja.

      However, the system is still being rolled out, and has not been fully launched, so it is missing some major provisions. From July 25 onwards, no building plans would be accepted manually at NMC, and all submissions would have to come only through BPMS. The pending submissions will still get manual sanction. Services like addition or alteration in existing structures, compounding, layout sanctioning, amalgamation and subdivision of plots are yet to be launched, and are likely to go online soon.

      In addition to above glitches, TOI had earlier pointed out some more drawbacks, including a lack of provision to acquire various No Objection Certificates (NOCs). “Authorities should take the matter seriously and make provision for online acquisition of fire NOC, since it will be beneficial to the public,” said chief fire officer Rajendra Uchake.

      The architects who have already registered are facing glitches in downloading the software necessary to trace plans. “Manual interference in any way will impact the process, and this would be a major reason for failure of the system. Also, the credibility of the software is questionable since the voluminous DCR guidelines might not be updated in real time,” said Ahuja.

      NMC is still looking hopeful for strong support from the fraternity. “Even though architects will face some problems initially in adapting to it, BPMS will benefit all in the longer run. After the initial discomfort, I am positive that people will look at the bigger picture,” said NMC’s assistant director of town planning Pramod Gawande.

        Twin-litter bins damaged within months of installation

        Proshun Chakraborty | TNN | Updated: Jul 27, 2018, 06:37 IST


        The damaged twin-litter bins installed by the civic body across the city to promote waste segregation have evo... Read More

        NAGPUR: The damaged twin-litter bins installed by the civic body across the city to promote waste segregation have evoked apathetic civic sense. Though these bins have been targeted by vandals, there hasn’t been much effort on part of the Nagpurians to use the facility judiciously.

        “At least 30 bins have been damaged in the last few months,” said a senior official in the NMC’s sanitation department.

        A survey by TOI revealed that dust bins on major roads, including West High Court Road and Amravati road, have been pulled down and as a result, garbage is found strewn all over the place. A sanitary worker, pointing to a damaged bin near Bole petrol pump, said that it was the job of local residents.

        In 2009, NMC had declared Nagpur a bin-free city by appointing Kanak Resources Management Limited to collect garbage from every household and dispose it at Bhandewadi dumping yard. But it failed to keep the city’s commercial places clean. So, to fix the gaps in the garbage disposal mechanism, NMC installed bins back at market places earlier this year.

        NMC has put up almost 1,200 bins mainly in market areas across the city in accordance with the Swachh Survekshan 2018 guidelines. The 200kg twin plastic litter bins, fitted to the ground, were meant for the use of shoppers and pedestrians in congested commercial areas. These bins have the facility that enables them to be tilted for the contents to be emptied into a collection vehicle.

        But these newly installed bins have been damaged in almost all areas like Khamla Road, Civil Lines, Dharampeth, Police Line Takli Road etc. A cursory look across the city shows garbage being dumped in these bins but never cleaned. Citizens also claimed that Kanak staffers do not collect garbage from the bins.

        “The high capacity bins are meant for public use, but the residents in many areas are dumping domestic waste causing them to overflow and form a black spot. Residents have door-to-door collection facility and are not supposed to use the litter bins. There should be sensitization about the purpose of the bin at zonal level,” said the officer.

        The NMC should ensure that these bins are periodically cleared without allowing garbage spill over, said residents.

        The initiative was honest, said civic activist Leena Budhe, but the authorities lacked the vision and effort to make it sustainable. “While the authorities demonstrated slackness and apathy towards implementation, management, and supervision of the facility, a section of city dwellers showed sheer lack of civic sense. All this resulted in the failure of the initiative,” she said.

        “Actually, these ill-maintained bins across the streets will now clog stormwater drains leading to flooding of roads. Before trying to making the city clean, NMC should at least prove it can have garbage cleared regularly,” she added.

          Non-forest agencies lagging in 13 crore plantation drive

          Vijay Pinjarkar | TNN | Updated: Jul 27, 2018, 05:54 IST

          NAGPUR: With five days left for the 13 crore ‘Greening Maharashtra’ drive to end, the campaign doesn’t seem to have gone well with all the agencies. Among the laggard agencies are two of the most polluting industries — energy department and Western Coalfields Limited (WCL). The energy department was set a plantation target of over 1.26 lakh seedlings but planted 75,548 (59%) while WCL, set a target of 1.65 lakh saplings, planted 7,580 seedlings (5.53%) till July 26.

          Most of the 13 crore plantations, which is expected to surpass the target, is due to the forest department, whose three wings — social forestry (SFD), Forest Development Corporation of Maharashtra (FDCM) and wildlife wing together planted 7.34 crore saplings while others have planted 4.51 crore.

          Till 7.30pm on Thursday, plantation of over 11.60 crore saplings had been recorded online, while, according to forest department, 86.43 lakh sapling plantation was recorded offline till Wednesday.

          However, even as the forest department has exceeded the target, NGOs (31%), educational institutes (72%), PWD (58%), gram panchayats (55%), NHAI (42%), Central Railway (18%), and departments of labour (16%), industry (48%), tourism (35%), rural (45%), agriculture (63%), public health (57%), and urban development (53%) are far behind achieving their targets.

          APCCF (policy & information technology) Praveen Srivastava said, “We can’t comment on the performance of other departments, but certainly their participation has increased as compared to last two drives to plant two crore and four crore saplings.”

          On the meagre plantations, WCL general manager (environment) Kaushik Chakraborty said, “We will achieve our target of 1.65 lakh trees. Not a single tree will be planted less. It is not about planting all the saplings in a month. We have distributed the target month-wise.”

          Chakraborty added, in addition to the 1.65 lakh saplings, WCL has distributed 35,000 seedlings in Chandrapur villages. “We expect to achieve the set target in August,” he said.

          In the meanwhile, Nanded has taken the lead in Maharashtra by achieving 99% target. The district planted 78.53 saplings of the 78.75 lakh target followed by Kolhapur (98%), Nandurbar (97%), Beed (96%), Sangli (95%), Gadchiroli (94%), Sindhudurg (93%) and Thane (91%). Wardha in Nagpur division has fared the worst by achieving a target of just 54%.

          In the meanwhile, the PCCF (HOFF) office has expressed dissatisfaction over lackadaisical attitude of chief conservator of forests (CCFs) in the state in submitting drone pictures of plantations.

          The department spent lakhs in deploying drones to gather evidence of plantations, but till now CCFs have failed to submit these pictures. Even the videos sent by the officials are not geo-referenced.

            Kochchhi barrage project needs Rs 130 crore, government gives Rs 1 crore

            Ashish Roy | TNN | Updated: Jul 27, 2018, 06:37 IST


            Kochchhi barrage project needs Rs 130 crore

            NAGPUR: BJP-Shiv Sena government, which promised to do justice to Vidarbha, seems to have forgotten all about it. Kochchhi barrage on Kanhan river, which is vital for supplying irrigation water to farmers of Ramtek and Mouda talukas, will face fund crunch unless government releases the money later this year. It may also create problems in meeting water needs of Nagpur.

            A source in Vidarbha Irrigation Development Corporation (VIDC) said that the agency had sought Rs 130 crore for 2018-19 but got only Rs 1 crore. “This amount was sanctioned in the budget while we got nothing in supplementary demands passed in the monsoon session. We have Rs 40 crore left from last year and this money will run out by December. Unless government sanctions some money, work on the project will stop,” he added.

            Contrary to the popular misconception, Kochchhi barrage will not directly supply water to Nagpur. “We will transport water through an underground pipeline to Pench right bank canal (RBC). This will irrigate 4,500 hectares in Ramtek and Mouda talukas. In lieu of this water, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) will lift its full share from Totladoh dam,” said the source.

            The total cost of the barrage is Rs 950 crore and so far Rs 650 crore have been spent on it. “We need Rs 130 crore this fiscal and Rs 170 crore in the next one. The target for completing the project is December 2019. However, if we don’t get funds on time, we will not be able to meet the deadline,” the source further said.

            The storage capacity of Kochchhi is 54 million cubic metre (mm3). “However, we would have used 75 mm3 by lifting the water when available,” said the source.

            Sunil Kedar, Congress MLA from Saoner, slammed the government for failing to sanction funds. “I had got the project cleared with lot of effort. All my efforts are going waste,” he told TOI. Kedar had raised the issue in the monsoon session of the state legislature but got no reply.

            Meanwhile, survey has started on the Jamghat dam, which is expected to meet the water needs of the city for coming 20 years.

              Relax stay on road expansion: National Highway Authority of India to HC

              Vaibhav Ganjapure | TNN | Jul 27, 2018, 06:23 IST

              NAGPUR: The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) on Thursday moved two applications in the Nagpur bench of Bombay high court, praying for relaxing the stay on expanding width of NH-44 passing through Kanhan and also to fill up potholes on the existing road.

              A division bench comprising justices Bhushan Dharmadhikari and Zaka Haq then fixed the hearing on both applications on Monday.

              The applications were filed in a PIL (2/2018) by Chandrabhan Singh through counsel Shreerang Bhandarkar and two others challenging NHAI and Kanhan Municipal Council’s move to remove encroachments coming in the way of road expansion.

              According to the petitioner, the NHAI was expanding its stretch passing through Kanhan, which included laying of new bridge and service roads. For this purpose, it needed an area which was passing through dense locality which was encroachment. As NHAI issued notices for eviction of illegal houses, the petitioner approached the judiciary praying for a stay on their action.

              The NHAI in its applications through counsels Ajay Ghare and Aneesh Kathane stated that filling up of potholes on the road was must while warning of accidents. On April 11, the HC slapped Re1 fine on collector and NHAI project director for failure to inform about width of the road and stayed the widening works.

              During the last hearing, the government and other authorities were directed to take necessary steps to remove encroachments on either side of the road and initiate necessary steps within four weeks.

              “The petitioner submitted that merely because encroachments are being protected, national highway with uneven width is being constructed. We find substance in this contention. The work is today not continuing. We direct the respondents not to continue or restart work till they come up with a definite plea in relation to NH’s width,” the HC said.

                In 27 days, state plants 13 cr saplings to achieve target

                Vijay Pinjarkar | tnn | Jul 28, 2018, 03:38 IST

                Nagpur: At 4.15pm on Friday, the state government, under its ‘Greening Maharashtra’ mission to fight climate change, accomplished the 13 crore tree plantation target.

                However, there seems to be huge mismatch in figures released by the state forest department. The department stated that Nanded was leading by planting 82.26 lakh saplings. But, at 9pm, when the figures were cross-checked on the official website, it showed 78.71 lakh saplings were planted. The mismatch was of 3.55 lakh.

                Similarly, the released figures did not tally with the numbers available on the website for Nashik, Chandrapur and Yavatmal. In Yavatmal, the department said 64.90 lakh saplings were planted but the website showed 54.98 lakh.

                In Aurangabad district, the forest department said that 54.98 lakh saplings were planted but the website showed 34.16 lakh seedlings were planted — a mismatch of 20.82 lakh.

                Even though the hi-tech plantation command room is set up at Van Bhavan in Nagpur, APCCF (policy & information technology) Praveen Srivastava said, “I will have to check because these figures were released from Mumbai.”

                Despite the mismatch of figures, this is the third consecutive year when the target has been exceeded under the 50 crore plantation drive to be achieved till 2019.

                “State today witnessed a big milestone. The target of 13Cr, to be achieved by 31st July, was achieved only after 27 days. Count at 4.15pm today was 13,00,48,005. I would like to thank all the stakeholders for this achievement,” forest minister Sudhir Mungantiwar tweeted.

                CM Devendra Fadnavis too tweeted his wishes. “Congratulations @SMungantiwar bhau for not just achieving the 13,00,00,000 mark for tree plantation initiative but crossing it in a record time! My heartfelt thanks to every person who joined in and contributed to our honest effort towards environment protection,” he wrote.

                The drive was launched on July 1. The plantation target has been achieved four days before it is to conclude on July 31. Planting of more seedlings is expected in next four days.

                In the 13 crore, forest department planted 7.94 crore seedlings and over 4.65 crore were planted in non-forest areas by other agencies. Nanded, Nashik, Chandrapur and Yavatmal have planted maximum number of saplings.

                “Even as the plantation target has been achieved, the biggest challenge before the forest department is ensuring survival of these saplings,” said NMC plantation consultant Shrikant Deshpande.

                Deshpande said consecutive plantation evaluation reports of the forest department itself has exposed large-scale irregularities in 3-year and 10-year plantations but till now no one has been held accountable.

                As reported by TOI, of the 3-year plantations (2011 rains) evaluated at 111 sites, only 13% showed survival beyond 66%. Similar were the evaluation results of evaluation report number 401, 492 and 501.

                Facts of the Matter

                Year Saplings Survival

                2016 2.82 cr 80%

                2017 5.43 cr 89%

                2018 13cr —

                *2019-20: Rs84112 lakh

                  NMC razes Bhoipura fish market, asks sellers to shift to Mangalwari

                  Anjaya Anparthi | TNN | Jul 28, 2018, 03:39 IST


                  NMC razed the encroachments made by the sellers on two sides of the road connecting Central Avenue with Bajeria.

                  Nagpur: The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has razed Bhoipura fish market that was running on both sides of road in front of Mayo Hospital for decades. The civic body has asked the fish wholesalers and retailers there to shift to its new fish market at Mangalwari.

                  NMC personnel from market and enforcement department reached Bhoipura in the morning. The team led by assistant commissioner (market) Vijay Humne asked all the sellers to vacate the area. Then it razed the encroachments made by the sellers on both sides of the road connecting Central Avenue with Bajeria.

                  Humne told TOI 26 slots at Mangalwari fish market were lying vacant and were better place for the fish sellers of Bhoipura market. “Market was established here encroaching upon the road. NMC has constructed 105 shops at Mangalwari of which 79 have been allotted. Various facilities including cold storage, godown etc have been provided there. It will help sellers get good market and citizens can use this road without hassles,” he said.

                  Humne added NMC was initiating action on large scale on encroachments for the last few days. “Action on fish market was part of the drive,” he said.

                  Bhoipura fish market was in very unhygienic condition. Foul smell used to pervade the area and troubled nearby residents. Also, fish entrails, blood etc were dumped on the roadside and in storm water drain.

                  NMC’s action appeared prompted by public interest litigation filed in Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court. One of the residents had filed a PIL on December 19 last year that will come up for hearing on August 1. The petitioner through advocate Shreerang Bhandarkar has demanded rehabilitation of the sellers and demolition of fish market.

                  Another resident said NMC had issued notice to fish sellers in 1984 but turned up for action only now. “HC had asked NMC and NIT way back in 1980s for construction of a new market for these sellers but nothing happened,” he said. The residents said sellers would again encroach upon the roads and revive market if NMC failed take regular follow up action.

                  A fish seller said Mangalwari was far away from Bhoipura so their business will be hit. “We should be provided place in Central Nagpur itself. The facilty at Mangalwari was not adequate for wholesalers,” he said.

                  Kelibag road leaseholders get fresh deadline

                  Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has set a new deadline of July 31 for its 36 leaseholders for vacating the shops for Kelibag road widening and concretization project. The earlier deadline of July 25 was ignored by shopkeepers.

                  NMC team had to return without demolishing the shops following strong opposition from leaseholders and shopkeepers on July 23. Municipal commissioner Virendra Singh along with the NMC officials visited the area and held discussion with the leaseholders. Singh gave new ultimatum of July 31. NMC will forcibly vacate the shops and demolish them on August 1.

                  Leaseholders and shopkeepers say NMC is yet to acquire other shops on the road so project cannot start by demolishing their 36 shops. They are requesting NMC to raze these shops along with others. They also also asking for alternate space for their business in the same market. NMC is yet to start tendering process for the project.

                    NMC’s notice to activist for planting trees on footpath!

                    Anjaya Anparthi | tnn | Jul 28, 2018, 03:40 IST

                    Nagpur: In a strange and probably first-of-its-kind action, NMC has issued a notice to Sudhir Paliwal for planting trees along the internal road in front of his Ramdaspeth residence. Paliwal, who is an activist and director of state government’s flyash management company Mahagams, said he planted trees as part of nationwide mass tree plantation drive.

                    Paliwal said trees were planted as per provisions of Maharashtra (urban areas) Protection and Preservation of Trees Act. “NMC started construction of footpath on both sides of the road in our area a couple of years ago. But the work was not completed. I planted four Ashoka trees on July 20 in place adjoining my compound. Civic cops on July 25 served me notice asking to remove plants within 48 hours,” he said.

                    The notice was issued by the health department of NMC Dharampeth Zone.

                    Paliwal added plantation was mandatory on both sides of the roads as per the Act. “I replied to the notice on Thursday along with photographs of similar plantation along roads in many areas. Many people have even fenced of such areas. There are big trees on footpaths across the city. Still, NMC served notice only to me,” he said alleging conspiracy.

                    NMC official said notice was served as trees were planted on footpath. “There is a storm water drain under the surface where trees are planted. We are demolishing all encroachments on footpaths across the zone and no one will be spared,” he said.

                    There is no footpath at the spot right now. Paliwal said storm water drain will not be damaged by trees as big trees already exist on footpaths across the city under which storm water drains and pipelines run. “NMC should complete construction of footpath leaving space for trees,” he said.

                      Nagpur: When many parks in the region were fretting over water crisis during summer owing to scanty rainfall last year, Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) management saw opportunity in the scarcity and desilted 18 water bodies and lakes within the park. A good monsoon this year has filled them to the brim ensuring water security in the reserve for years to come.

                      TATR officials, who faced heat for regulating tourism during summer, are today happy they focused on water conservation and got the water bodies desilted. Eight of these water bodies are in Kolsa, three in Mohurli and seven in Tadoba range.

                      “We spent Rs 34 lakh on the project. Major chunk came from Tiger Conservation Foundation (TCF) and some from National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA). The rainwater now collected will charge groundwater and ponds and lakes will be full to face future crisis,” explained chief conservator of forest (CCF) and field director Mukul Trivedi.

                      “Solar pumps won’t work if the tube wells they are fitted on go dry. Hence, groundwater recharge through water harvesting in lakes is important,” explains deputy director (core) Kishor Mankar. The department created 6.02 crore litres of extra storage and all of it today full.

                      Mankar informed, this summer key wildlife water sources like Navegaon, Jamunbodi, Yenbodi, Kumbhibodi, Botezari, Aswalhira, Jamunzora and Pandharpaoni had gone dry in May-June. In Telia too, there was only a narrow strip of water left after December. Forest department went to work on those lakes and using heavy machinery removed silt from them.

                      “We also constructed 1.5-metre-high cement ‘bandhara’ and deepened the source upstream. Now there will be water in two parts throughout the year. Not only Telia, Jamni, Suklibodi, Mahalgaon, Pandharpaoni will also have water even if we have scanty rainfall next year. Katezari and Bhanuskhindi were not taken up as both had enough water in them,” says Mankar.

                      Explaining the larger plan, Mankar said, “We took desilting of big water bodies as they provide space for herbivores and carnivores. The project will help curb man-animal conflict as animals will not move out of the park in search of water and enter villages.”

                      “If there is sufficient water in lakes there will be good grass in nearby area which is good for small animals like hares and other species. During water scarcity small animals like mongoose, monitor lizards, squirrels face most difficulty as they cannot migrate like large animals,” he said.

                      The work on desilting started in January but most crucial period was May and June when water bodies went completely dry. “It allowed us to remove maximum amount of silt and now the results are visible,” said Mankar.

                      “At last we can hope to make Tadoba tanker-free. In some water bodies there are still murrum and boulders and for 1-2 years water may not be retained entire summer. Silt deposition in 2-3 years will stop percolation and there will be enough water,” Mankar hoped.

                      Trivedi was confident that water management will change the face of Tadoba. “It’s an ongoing process. Small streams need to be treated with soil moisture conservation (SMC) technique like loose boulder structures, cement bandharas, brushwood check dams, soil embankments after rainy season to stop flow. We made loose boulder structures at more than 260 places. This will reduce speed of runoff and increase ground water recharge,” said Trivedi.

                      “SMC work in TATR will help increase availability in neighbouring Erai dam too. At some water bodies, small islands have been created. These will act as perching place for water birds,” added Mankar.
