    Mastermind of Ytl land scam held

    tnn | Sep 8, 2018, 05:57 IST

    Yavatmal: The SIT sleuths, led by PI Ashish Betal of Yavatmal police station, on Wednesday arrested Rakesh Yadav, the mastermind of the multicrore land scam from Pandharkawda. Police produced Rakesh before the court on Thursday and obtained his PCR for five days.

    SIT chief Piyush Jagtap said they have received a tip-off about the arrival of Yadav in Pandharkawda. He was on his way to Adilabad in neighbouring Telangana for taking shelter with his sister there.

    “We sent our men to Pandharkawda and arrested him before he moved out of the state,” Jagtap said.

    “Seven criminal offences have been registered in various police stations regarding the case. Twelve persons, including Rakhesh, have been arrested so far,” Jagtap said, adding that Mangesh Panhalkar, a close associate of Yadav, was arrested earlier and gave clues about Yadav during interrogation.

    Yadav and Panhalkar had fabricated records of the original owners of land lying unattended in the city and its periphery. Thereafter, they executed sale deeds in bogus names with the help of officials in the district sub-registrar office.

    Earlier, the SIT team had arrested a stamp vendor and seized his laptop. The team also sealed a xerox centre near the SP office in this connection.

      Nagpur in EU funded pilot project to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

      TNN | Sep 8, 2018, 10:43 IST

      Picture for representational purpose only.

      NAGPUR: The city is one of the three in the country to be selected for a European Union (EU) funded ‘Mobilize Your City’ (MYC) project aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions related to urban transport. The other two cities for the MYC pilot are Ahmedabad and Kochi.

      India and France signed the MYC implementation agreement in New Delhi on Thursday in the presence of minister of state for housing and urban affairs (MoHUA) Hardeep Singh Puri and Alexander Ziegler, Ambassador of France in India. It was signed by Mukund Kumar Sinha, OSD, ex officio joint secretary, while regional director, Agence Française de Développement (AfD), Nicolas Fornage, signed on behalf of AfD.

      MYC is part of an international initiative which is supported by the French and the German governments and was launched at 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) meeting in December, 2015. Based on a proposal made by AfD, the European Union has agreed to provide Euro 3.5 million for technical assistance in the project.

      MYC aims at implementing urban mobility plans at local level and to help India to improve its sustainable transport policy.

        Several hurdles in way of Station Road widening

        Ashish Roy | TNN | Sep 9, 2018, 03:01 IST

        Nagpur: Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari may want to prevent traffic congestion at Jaistambh Square but the job is easier said than done. There are several hurdles in way of the execution of the project.

        The project includes construction of a flyover on Kingsway, demolishing the existing Station Road flyover and replacing it by a six-lane road and constructing a two-lane railway underbridge (RUB) adjacent to the existing one near Shani Mandir. Gadkari has entrusted the project to MahaMetro.

        A source in MahaMetro said that one of the biggest problems was the rehabilitation of 170 shopkeepers, who have their establishments under the existing flyover. “They have to provided shops near the railway station. There is very little space available for that. The only way to do this is by razing the Madhya Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (MPSRTC) office. But for that Madhya Pradesh government will have to agree to hand over the building. A multi-storied building will have to be constructed in its place,” he added.

        Public works department (PWD), which is preparing the estimate for the project, has decided not to include the cost of demolishing the existing flyover in it. This means that the bill will have to be footed by the cash-strapped Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC). The actual project will be executed using Central Road Fund (CRF).

        Defence and railway land will have to be acquired for constructing the Kingsway flyover and widening the Station Road. “Acquiring defence land entails lots of formalities and it takes time. We will construct a four-lane road and then widen it when the land is available,” said the source.

        Meanwhile, MahaMetro has chalked out a plan of action for executing the project. “First, NMC will have to rehabilitate the shopkeepers. Then we will dismantle the flyover. Next comes constructing the Station Road. We will then construct the RUB and last is construction of Kingsway flyover,” he said.

        The land acquisition will have to be done by either PWD or NMC, whichever is the main agency for the project. MahaMetro will work as a contractor. The estimate for the project is expected to be ready in seven to ten days.

          Scrutiny panel move by civic chief irks BJP legislators too

          Anjaya Anparthi | TNN | Sep 10, 2018, 03:13 IST

          Nagpur: Even as corporators of the ruling BJP in Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) are up in arms against municipal commissioner Virendra Singh’s move aimed at judicious utilization of funds, action against unauthorized constructions and illegal religious structures, party legislators too have questioned the civic chief’s decision to set up a new committee for scrutiny of works before and after the tendering process.

          Singh, on August 27, formed a seven-member committee comprising additional municipal commissioner, deputy municipal commissioner, chief accounts and finance officer, chief audit officer, legal adviser, chief of IT, PRO and heads of respective departments to scrutinize works. The committee was authorized to verify the necessity of the works to be carried out, technical aspects etc after clearance from the standing committee and civic chief. The committee was also given powers to consult successful bidder and to negotiate rates and monitor execution.

          Irked over this, East Nagpur MLA Krishna Khopde told TOI that the committee would further delay execution of works. “It (the committee) will prove to be detrimental to the interest of the NMC and public,” he said. “This committee should not have power to scrutinize the works proposed by legislators. Majority of the officers in the committee clear works before tabling them before the standing committee or civic chief,” he said.

          South Nagpur MLA Sudhakar Kohle said it would be infringement of the rights of the legislators if the committee does scrutiny of the works proposed by them. “NMC is an agency that is supposed to only execute the works proposed by us. Funds are given by the state government. Therefore, interference will not be tolerated,” he said.

          Central Nagpur MLA Vikas Kumbhare said NMC utilizing legislators’ funds for its own works in itself is a major violation. “Works proposed by us are delayed to a great extent. We have received complaints regarding payments to contractors being put on hold. There is no reason to withhold payments when we have already made provision for the same and government releasing the funds. Also, the civic chief is not paying any heed to complaints lodged by us. One such example is the worse condition of the road connecting Mominpura with Golibar Square. I had written several letters asking for repairs of the road but nothing happened,” he said.

            Kohle pulls up NMC office bearers over civic problems

            Anjaya Anparthi | TNN | Sep 10, 2018, 03:42 IST

            Nagpur: BJP is reportedly upset with its office bearers running Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) over rise in civic problems. Party’s city president and MLA Sudhakar Kohle has reportedly hauled up the NMC office bearers and directed them to meet citizens and solve problems raised by them and party workers.

            Kohle held a meeting with Mayor Nanda Jichkar, deputy mayor Deepraj Pardikar, ruling party leader Sandip Joshi, standing committee chairman Virendra Kukreja, chairpersons of consultative committees and zones at BJP office on Saturday.

            Kohle told TOI the communication gap between NMC office bearers and citizens and party activists seems to have widened. “Complaints about sanitation have increased. Dengue cases are on the rise. Problems related to drinking water supply are not ending. Non-functioning street lights are causing various problems. People expect these facilities. Going to NMC and looking after its affairs is not enough. Office bearers should meet people and party activists and resolve complaints raised by them,” he said.

            Kohle said day-to-day monitoring of works can help check problems. “Office bearers and corporators should monitor the sanitary workers daily. This would prevent piling up of garbage in localities. The same goes for every work,” he said.

            Last week, Kohle held a meeting with NMC officials to review the problems related to his constituency.

            Congress city president Vikas Thakre said it was a certificate issued by BJP itself to its own office bearers that they are unable to run NMC and the city. “Condition of roads has gone worse. Every hospital is jampacked with patients. There is no control over quality of cement road and other works. All areas are getting contaminated drinking water supply. Only private companies and contractors are happy with NMC’s working,” he said.

            BJP sources said Kohle directed the office bearers to start ward and zone-wise meetings. “Kohle said none of the office bearers except chairman of tax consultative committee Sandip Jadhav was holding review meetings or going to all zones.”

              Properties under Court of Wards cannot be sold: Court

              Anjaya Anparthi | TNN | Sep 11, 2018, 03:32 IST

              Nagpur: The district court has ruled that properties under Court of Wards, falling under the collector, cannot be sold. With this order, a cooperative society — Nagpur Beghar Mitra Gruha Nirman Society — has lost sprawling 2.12 hectare land that it reportedly bought from Bhonsale family members. The land is open and worth crores.

              Joint civil judge, senior division, RS Salgaonkar, passed the order on April 24 while deciding in a petition filed by Rani Annapurna Devi against Court of Wards.

              “Superintendence of Court of Wards exists over the entire estate of Senior Bhonsale even today. Sale deeds in favour of the society have been executed in contravention of bar under Section 31 of the Central Province Court of Wards Act, 1899. Hence, the sale deeds are not binding on the ‘government wards’ or the estate. The society is not having any right over this property. The sale deed in favour of the society is a hollow document which creates false picture of ownership without title being transferred to it,” the court said.

              As per information available in the order, the Court of Wards had given permission to members of Bhonsale family to sell out some lands for paying long pending dues of the government. Accordingly, the court had approved it on September 2, 2014.

              The society came to know about availability of land — khasra no. 97 in mouza Khamla (0.51 hectare) and khasra no. 89 in mouza Somalwada (1.61 hectare) — in the market for sale. Claiming its ownership on these lands, the society had filed an application in the court on January 2, 2017. The society had claimed to have purchased 0.51 hectare land on December 2, 2004 from Raje Laxmansingh Fatesingh Bhonsale and others and 1.61 hectare land from Raghujirao Ajitsingh Bhonsale, Mudhoji and others on January 21, 2006.

              The court continued its order giving permission to sell the lands including these two. “This court is ensuring that the dues of the state exchequer are recovered. Rather, the properties left after clearing the dues can be given in possession of parties (Bhonsales) during the partition. The applications of the society are not allowed. As a consequence, the society to pay costs of this application,” the court ordered.

              One of the oldest cases

              The petition filed by Rani Annapurna Devi against Court of Wards is one of the oldest in the district court. It was filed in 1961 and pending till date. Person of Government Wards and entire properties of Senior Bhonsale Estate were given under the superintendence of Court of Wards by British government in 1925 under the Central Province of Court of Wards Act, 1899. The case came up before the court for partition of properties among the members of Bhonsale family. The dispute between the Royal family members came to an end through a compromise pursis dated July 22, 2012. But the court is considering recovery of government dues — income tax and wealth tax.

                  We too responsible for city’s sanitation debacle, admits BJP corporator

                  Anjaya Anparthi | TNN | Sep 12, 2018, 03:35 IST

                  Nagpur: BJP corporator Manoj Chafle, who is also the chairman of the Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s (NMC) health consultative committee has admitted that the ruling party was equally responsible, along with the administration and citizens, for increase in garbage-related problems and city’s debacle in sanitation ranking.

                  During a press conference, when TOI asked Chafle on whether the NMC has planned mass awareness programmes to control dengue and scrub typhus, the corporator had no reply. “People are responsible for rise in dengue. The need is to take stringent action against the people in whose houses mosquito larvae is found. The NMC administration too is responsible,” Chafle said.

                  When asked about his directives for registering FIR against people, Chafle said the NMC doesn’t have such powers and will consult the state government. He also did not comment on mosquito larvae found in houses of three corporators last month.

                  Chafle, along with Dr Uday Gupte, Dr Vaidehi Marathe and office bearers of Maheshwari Panchayat, announced the opening of nation’s first Diabetes Reversal Centre at Maher Nursing Home in Dharampeth on September 14. They said the centre will be inaugurated at a symposium of Dr Jagannath Dixit, an expert of effortless weight loss and diabetes prevention, at Suresh Bhat hall.

                  The BJP corporator further said that Indore had learnt practices of solid waste management from the NMC in 2015 but now the scenario is totally opposite as the city is lagging far behind the MP city.

                  Chafle said mosquito breeding was a result of sudden changes in climate. “We have ensured fogging across the city once and will continue it. Inspection and necessary steps to control dengue is on. Scrub typhus is under control,” he said.

                  NMC health officer (medical) Dr Anil Chiwane said directives were issued to all NMC-run health centres and posts to provide primary health care for patients of dengue and scrub typhus. “NMC centres are capable to treat scrub typhus,” he said.

                  Chiwane said only two of 16 patients who died of scrub typhus in the city belonged to city and others from neighbouring districts and states.

                  Marathe said Diabetes Reversal Centre will be opened between 8am and 11am and free of cost for all. “Dr Gupte will guide the patients at the centre. “Opening of the centre and also symposium was organized to mark birth anniversary of former minister Dr Shrikant Jichkar who was pioneer of effortless weight loss and diabetes prevention,” she said.

                  Dr Gupte added over 40,000 people of 37 cities were connected with effortless weight loss and diabetes prevention project.

                    HC stays allotment of all PU land, open spaces

                    Vaibhav Ganjapure | TNN | Sep 13, 2018, 03:11 IST

                    Nagpur: In a setback to Maharashtra government and civic agencies, the Nagpur bench of Bombay high court on Wednesday granted interim stay on all allotments on city’s public utility (PU) lands and open spaces. The move comes after the petitioner submitted TOI’s new report on Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) allotting spaces for 30 booths to sell milk, ice cream and bakery products across the city, in violation of earlier HC orders.

                    NIT had planned to provide these spaces on lease at a nominal rate of just Re 1 per year for 30 years, which petitioner Ajay Tiwari challenged through counsel M Anil Kumar.

                    A division bench comprising justices Bhushan Dharmadhikari and Murlidhar Giratkar have granted four weeks to respondents, including NIT, to respond. State Urban Development Department (UDD), Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) and Nagpur Metro Regional Development Authority (NMRDA) are the other respondents in the PIL, and were also asked to reply on various points in the same time.

                    TOI had reported on Wednesday that UDD issued a notification granting approval to NIT’s proposal to lease out spaces in PU lands and open spaces. The NIT chairman was told to verify whether the use of PU land was permissible in the development control regulations (DCR), and also earlier HC orders. However, as per NIT officials, advance possession of these 30 spaces had already given to set up the booths over the last six months.

                    According to the petitioner, the allotment was done even before the state government gave its approval, and the move was in contempt of HC directives of July 11.

                    In the earlier hearings, the HC has stayed any move to regularize any structure on open land or public amenity. It came after the petitioner pointed out that instead of curbing illegal layouts and developments, the civic agencies and state are legalizing them at the cost of general public, since 1987, in the guise of policy decisions. Initially, there were only 572 unauthorized layouts, which in due course were raised to 1,900, and now their approximate number is more than 4,500.

                    The petitioner challenged Maharashtra Gunthewari Developments (Regularization, Upgradation and Control) Act, 2001, and Maharashtra Town Planning (Compounded Structures) Rules, 2017. Citing TOI reports of July 9, he pointed out that all such unauthorized layouts on open plots were bring considered for regularization.

                    He contended that open land earmarked accordingly, or for public amenity, as per the provisions of Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning (MRTP) Act, 1966 is reduced at the cost of general public who paid for it. The HC had issued notices to advocate general and other respondents in the last hearing.

                      Cidco to construct 407m skywalk at Chikhaldara

                      Barkha Mathur | TNN | Sep 13, 2018, 03:14 IST

                      To be built by Cidco, the 407-meter bridge with a width of 2.35 meter will connect Hurricane Point and Goreghat Point

                      Nagpur: In an initiative that promises to give a tourism boost to the only hill station in Vidarbha, Cidco is coming up with a project to construct a rope suspension bridge (skywalk) at Chikhaldara.

                      The 407-meter bridge with a width of 2.35 meter will connect Hurricane Point and Goreghat Point. “It is the first single suspension bridge to be constructed in the state, and the third of its kind in the world,” informed Devendra Jamnikar, executive engineer and in-charge of the project for Cidco. “We selected this location as the depth between these two points is good. Though the wind speed here is around 160 kmph, we will be constructing the skywalk to withstand wind speeds of up to 190 kmph,” he says.

                      The skywalk will have a glass flooring, “Formed by three layers of St Gobain glass of 12mm thickness, the floor will bear the weight of around 500 people at a time,” says Jamnikar. Designed by an Indore-based firm, KC Pathak & Associates, it will be built at a cost of Rs37.98 crore.

                      “The tendering process of the work will be initiated soon, once we obtain the forest clearance,” Jamnikar informs. The project will require diversion of 0.872HA of forest land. “We have applied for the clearance on August 2, and the process takes around six months. Construction work will start after the clearance is obtained and will be completed in about 18 months,” he adds.

                      In 2016, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had approved a Rs500 crore development plan for Chikhaldara to tap its potential by creating basic tourism infrastructure. The hill station, which is popular in Vidarbha for its picturesque landscapes, is also now known for its strawberry and coffee plantations. “Cidco is also constructing a 1.5km cable ropeway from Energy Point to Malviya Point, and is also constructing approach roads to all the points,” Jamnikar said.
