    PATNA: Bihar Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) has issued 55 notices to 16 real estate companies across the state in just one week for making haste in completing their projects without registering them with the authority.

    The notices were issued to the builders for not complying with Section 3 of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act 2016. Under Section 3, it is mandatory for builders to get permanent approval before advertising projects, entering into an agreement with customers and accepting advance money from them.

    RERA-Bihar member Rajiva Bhushan Sinha told this newspaper on Sunday that the ongoing projects which are not registered with the authority are located in Patna, Bhagalpur, Muzaffarpur, Bhojpur and Rohtas districts.

    RERA-Bihar had recently directed the real estate companies to display prominently the names of the projects, promoters, developers, registered real estate agents, RERA number and dates of the commencement and proposed completion of the ongoing projects at the construction sites and the offices of the real estate companies.

    "Promoters of ongoing real estate projects, in which all buildings as per sanctioned plan have not received completion certificate, shall also be required to register for such phase of the project, which includes buildings not having occupation or completion certificate," said Sinha. He added, "If any promoter fails to register as per the Act, he shall be liable to a penalty, which may extend up to 10% of the estimated cost of the real estate project. On continued violation, he shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term, which may extend up to three years or with fine which may extend up to a further 10% of the estimated cost of the real estate project, or with both. Apart from registration, the promoters shall be required to provide quarterly updates on the status of the project to the authority."

    The builders have been asked to register their projects with RERA by July 31 with a late fee of Rs 4 lakh or 400% of the registration fee, whichever is higher. The deadline for registration of ongoing projects with late fine will expire on July 31.

        Govt rules out runway extension towards zoo

        Faryal Rumi | TNN | Updated: Aug 1, 2018, 07:30 IST

        A flyer at Patna airport on Tuesday.


        PATNA: The state government on Tuesday ruled out the proposal for extending the Jayaprakash Narayan International (JPNI) Airport runway towards zoo and insisted on its own proposal of constructing another runway parallel to the existing one.

        Chief secretary Deepak Kumar told the Airports Authority of India (AAI) officials at a meeting that it was not feasible to provide the city zoo land and they should look for alternatives for the runway extension. Patna airport director Rajender Singh Lahauria said the chief secretary asked AAI to shift the runway north of its existing position to pave way for its extension towards Phulwarisharif end. Deepak has already proposed a new runway around 50 to 100 metres north of the existing one.

        Incidentally, the extension of runway towards Phulwarisharif is not possible owing to the railway track. Accordingly, the AAI had sought additional land towards zoo.

        “The AAI wants 7.5 acre land in the zoo to extend the runway up to 135 metres. Instead, the chief secretary asked us to check the feasibility of shifting the runway towards the terminal building and the government will be in a position to give some land on the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) premises. An AAI team will check the feasibility of the government’s proposal and submit a corresponding report to the chief secretary in a week or two,” Lahauria said, adding if the new runway is constructed on the land occupied by the terminal building, it will affect the upcoming new terminal building project.

        The airport authorities had earlier demanded 7.5 acre in city zoo and 45 acre on the airport’s eastern side for the extension of runway. Due to constraints of its location, the domestic flights use 1,677 to 2,072 metres of the total 2,286m-long runway for landing.

        The government officials said the airport would not get the zoo land or any private land for the runway extension. “The airport officials have been asked to extend the runway towards Phulwarisharif while maintaining a proper distance from the railway track. The state government will provide additional land on the northern side of airport to extend the runway,” a government official said.

        The airport officials were also asked to install guiding lights and security lights outside the terminal building.

          RJD MP submits memo to PM for four-laning of NH-80

          Kumar Rajesh | TNN | Aug 2, 2018, 01:00 IST

          BHAGALPUR: RJD MP Shailesh Kumar alias Bulo Mandal met the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Tuesday and apprised him of the dilapidated condition of NH-80 from Bhagalpur to Sahebganj (Jhakhand) and the traffic snarls choking city areas everyday.

          The MP handed over a memorandum to the PM requesting for immediate repair and restoration of NH-80.

          Mandal also urged the PM to direct the NHAI and the ministry of road, transport and highways to expand the existing narrow road into a four-lane road keeping the movement of hundreds of heavily loaded trucks on the stretch.

          The MP had also embarked on a 24km foot march to draw the attention of the state government and the local authorities including the road construction department and the district administration towards the wretched condition of the NH stretch.

          More than thousand students of Bihar College of Engineering (BCE) organized a road blockade for four hours near the college gate on July 28 to draw the attention of the authorities towards the pathetic condition of the NH-80 stretch which also connects the district to Jharkhand. The students lifted their blockade only after the NHAI officials gave a written assurance to repair the road.

          Several other educational institutions like Bihar Agricultural University (BAU), DPS School, Mount Assisi School etc, are situated on this stretch.

          Following the students’ agitation, divisional commissioner Rajesh Kumar convened an emergency meeting of the district and police officials besides engineers of the road construction department and NHAI. Following the meet, the NHAI has started some patch work from Monday to make it motorable in the rainy season.

          While talking to this newspaper on phone, the RJD MP said the PM has assured to look into the matter.

            Delay in land acquisition hits Dobhi-Patna 4-lane road project

            Abdul Qadir | TNN | Aug 2, 2018, 01:00 IST

            GAYA: Delay in land acquisition has halted the execution of important development projects including the four-laning of NH-83 between Dobhi and the state capital.

            The Rs 2,015 crore project launched in April 2014 was scheduled to completed by April 2018. But even after four months of expiry of the deadline, except for some odd patches here and there, not much has been done and going by its present pace of work, the project is unlikely to be completed during the next few years.

            Conceding that delay in land acquisition has hit the execution of the ambitious project, road construction department principal secretary Amrit Lal Meena said the land issue will be resolved by August 31, 2018. Of the 127 km stretch, land for 94 km has already been handed over to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) and the remaining 34 km would get the required land.

            The state government was serious on the land acquisition issue and in the recent past, the chief secretary has held three review meetings with the district magistrates of Gaya, Jehanabad and Patna to expedite the land acquisition process. Sources say that land acquisition in Jehanabad district has been the most tricky one. The four lane road would criss-cross the three districts of Gaya, Jehanabad and Patna.

            The NHAI had awarded the project to IL&FS Engineering and Construction Company Limited fixing April 9, 2018 as the deadline. Besides four laning of the 127 km stretch between Dobhi and Patna, the company has to construct 11 major bridges, 17 minor bridges, three service roads, three road overbridges and 218 culverts. Japan International Cooperation agency is funding the project.

            The other important project affected due to delay in land acquisition is the Gaya airport runway expansion plan. On account of a somewhat shorter runway, wide body planes cannot land or take off from Gaya airport. At most A-320 type planes with a passenger capacity of about 150 can be accommodated at the existing runway. According to aviation experts, airlines across the world are phasing out narrow body planes and wide body aircraft was the emerging norm.

            “The existing length of the Gaya runway is 2,286 meter and it is 45 meters wide. A minimum of 500 meter addition to the existing runway is required,” says Gaya airport director. The breadth too has to be widened by another 15 meters. About 100 acres of land is required for the airport expansion plan, said the airport director.

            District magistrate Abhishekh Singh said the land acquisition process has been delayed due to litigation.

              PIB nod to 4-lane bridge parallel to Gandhi setu

              Piyush Tripathi | TNN | Aug 2, 2018, 02:00 IST

              PATNA: The Public investment Board (PIB) on Tuesday gave its nod for construction of the proposed four-lane bridge parallel to the existing Mahatma Gandhi Setu over the Ganga in Patna.

              The 5.63km-long bridge was proposed under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s special package for Bihar which he had announced prior to the assembly elections in the state in 2015. The bridge is proposed to be built by the Union ministry of road, transport and highways utilizing an estimated outlay of Rs 2,961 crore.

              “The new bridge will be constructed west of the Gandhi setu in the upstream of the Ganga. An approval from the PIB is necessary for all central projects incurring an estimated outlay of over Rs 1,000 crore. Now that the PIB has given its nod, a corresponding proposal will be tabled in the meeting of the Union cabinet to seek its final approval before initiating the bidding process for roping in a construction firm,” state road construction minister Nand Kishor Yadav told TOI on Wednesday.

              Officials claimed that the total length of the new bridge from Zero Mile in Patna to Ramashish Chowk in Hajipur is 14.5km.

              According to Nand Kishor, the state government has already acquired 115 acres of land for the project. “The new bridge is proposed to be constructed using modern techniques like extradosed cable- stayed technology,” the minister said.

              RCD officials claimed that the existing approach road of the Gandhi setu will also be developed into four lanes in order to provide connectivity to the new bridge. “The construction of the new bridge will act as a big boost for vehicular movement between north and south Bihar, including the movement of heavy vehicles,” Nand Kishor said.

              Meanwhile, works are already underway for rehabilitation of the 35-year old Mahatma Gandhi Setu. The existing superstructure of the bridge is being completely demolished and triangular steel girders are proposed be erected. Demolition work of the western flank of the setu is on.

              “The western flank of the bridge is targeted to be demolished by November and a new structure will be constructed by November next year. Accordingly, the entire project is targeted to be completed by 2020,” Nand Kishor said.

                  1 lakh saplings to be planted in Patna till August 10: Sushil Kumar Modi

                  TNN | Updated: Aug 2, 2018, 07:06 IST


                  Bihar CM Nitish Kumar plants a sapling in Patna on Wednesday

                  PATNA: Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi said on Wednesday that 1 lakh saplings of trees would be planted at Patna till August 10 and 10 lakh in the entire district during the same period.

                  Modi also planted saplings at his Polo Road residence here to mark the start of 10-day Van Mahotsav as a part of the joint social forestry drive of the environment and forest department and the rural development department. Later, he went to Koshiari village in Supaul and visited Araria to plant the saplings on the occasion.

                  Modi said the environment and forest department would plant 1 crore saplings over the next ten days. The rural development department would plant 50 lakh saplings under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee schemes. Besides, anyone opting to plant saplings at personal level would get the plants at Rs5 each from the environment and forest department.

                  Modi also said Kaimur district created a record by planting 2 lakh saplings in the district in two hours on Wednesday. Kaimur DM and district forest officer (DFO) had dug the earth for it in advance. As many as 20,000 teachers, government employees and students participated in the drive, Modi said.

                  Overall, 15 crore saplings would be planted over the next five years with a view to increasing the green cover of the state from the existing 15% to 17% of its area to comply with the Centre’s policy, Modi said, adding 19 crore saplings were planted during the period (2012-17) of the second agriculture road map which had brought up the state’s green cover to 15% of its area.

                  He also appealed to the legislators, ward councillors of urban bodies and people in general to take active interest in the Van Mahotsav and plant saplings of trees as per their choice.

                    RERA slaps 32 notices

                    Faryal Rumi | TNN | Aug 2, 2018, 02:00 IST

                    PATNA: The Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) on Wednesday issued 32 fresh show-cause notices to 10 real estate firms for advertising their projects without registering with the authority under the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016. The ongoing projects, which were served notices, are located in Patna, Ara, Bhagalpur, Muzaffarpur and Rohtas.

                    As per the RERA Act, which came into effect in May last year, builders should get permanent approval before advertising projects, entering into an agreement with customers and accepting advance money from them.

                    RERA-Bihar member Rajiva Bhushan Sinha said, ERA (Bihar) member Rajiva Bhushan Sinha said, “People may take note that the promoters and developers of these projects are not authorized to sell any space in the project under Section 3 of RERA Act, 2016.”

                    Meanwhile, the RERA on July 31 received 40 applications for registration of ongoing real estate projects. The authority has decided to extend the deadline till August 31 without increasing the late fee. Earlier, the deadline was July 31 for registering projects with a fine of Rs 4 lakh or 400% whichever is higher.

                    “At least 598 builders and promoters have registered their projects with the RERA by July 31. Most of these are located in Patna, Gaya, Muzaffarpur, Bhagalpur, Ara, Vaishali, Purnia, Katihar and Begusarai. Of the 598 projects, 122 have got RERA number,” said Sinha.

                      Repair work begins on battered road

                      Kumar Rajesh | TNN | Aug 4, 2018, 01:00 IST

                      BHAGALPUR: Repair work on the NH-80 stretch from Bhagalpur to Sahebganj in Jharkhand has started on war footing from Friday to make the road motorable in this rainy season.

                      Talking to this newspaper, divisional commissioner Rajesh Kumar said, “We have stopped the movement of trucks and heavy vehicles between Ghogha to Bhagalpur on this stretch for the ongoing repair work for a week and we hope to make it motorable soon.”

                      The repair work which began last Monday following an agitation by students of Bihar College of Engineering and local residents who had organized a road blockade for hours near the engineering college gate on July 28 at Sabour, was stopped after a day.

                      The divisional commissioner quickly has issued a show-cause notice to the executive engineer National Highways on Thursday for the unusual delay in repair and restoration of NH-80 stretch. Following the show-cause notice, NH engineers and contractors started repairing the battered road.

                      It may be mentioned here that deep ditches on NH-80 often results in heavy traffic snarls each day which extends to the main city areas because of the extremely poor condition of the road. “The pathetic condition of the most important road (NH-80) is due to the apathy of the road construction department and the engineers concerned,” said the divisional commissioner.

                      To draw the attention of the authorities towards the dilapidated road condition which have a large number of huge potholes and ditches, there have been several protests and public demonstrations. But every move has proved futile till date.

                      On Tuesday, even RJD MP Shailesh Kumar alias Bulo Mandal had met the PM Narendra Modi in New Delhi to draw his attention towards the pathetic condition of NH-80 and handed over a memorandum to direct the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) and the state government to start immediate repair and restoration of the road besides widening it into a four-lane stretch.

                      Enraged by the neglect of the important road, The students lifted their blockade when the NHAI officials gave an written assurance to repair the road.
