    DGCA to hold hearing of over 190 buildings near Surat Airport on March 19

    DGCA officials will be arriving on March 19 after Union civil aviation ministry directed them to conduct hearing in Surat.
    SURAT: Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will hold personal hearing of residents of 198 buildings obstructing runway path of aircraft landing and taking off from Surat airport here on March 19.

    DGCA officials will be arriving on March 19 after Union civil aviation ministry directed them to conduct hearing in Surat.

    Earlier, DGCA had asked owners and society presidents of buildings facing demolition under section 6 of aircraft rules, 1994 to remain present on March 4 at its deputy director’s office in Mumbai for personal hearing.

    In December 2019 in a public interest litigation, Gujarat high court had ordered Centre, Airports Authority of India (AAI) and Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) to look into the issue of unauthorized construction near the airport. Builders and residents of 48 projects had approached the high court.

    DGCA’s personal hearing is being organized after the high court’s order to authorities to take up the building height obstruction issue seriously. It had criticised inaction on the part of AAI and SMC after issuing notices for demolition of buildings which do not even have building use permission (BUC).

    An officer of AAI said, “Residents and builders of affected buildings have been summoned for personal hearing on March 19. Before conducting the final hearing with regard to obstacles to flight path of the aircraft, DGCA will like to meet the residents.”

    Removal of obstacles on approach surface of runway-22 at Vesu side will pave the way for clearing displacement of 615 metres imposed by DGCA. This means an aircraft landing from Vesu side will be able to use the full length runway of 2,905 metres, instead of current 2,290 metres.

    Sources said the survey of buildings obstructing the flight path within 6.6 kilometres on the approach funnel of runway at Vesu end was done in 2018. About 198 buildings of 48 projects were identified as violators of permissible top elevation and coordinate rules.

      Surat: Housing societies start disinfecting premises

      The housing societies have started hiring private who are charging anything between Rs 16,000 to Rs 30,000 depending on the area.
      SURAT: The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has turned into a money spinner for private firms providing pest control services as housing societies are stepping up sanitizating and disinfecting their premises themselves, without waiting for the government assistance.

      The housing societies have started hiring private who are charging anything between Rs 16,000 to Rs 30,000 depending on the area. At many places, people are disinfecting their houses and vehicles to ensure the safety of their family members and the people in the housing societies.

      Mahesh Patel, secretary of Vaishnaodevi Lifestyle apartment at Pal told TOI, “We hired a private pest control firm to sanitize all the six towers housing 165 flats. All the towers from top to bottom including kids play area, gazebo, volley ball court, basement parking, staircases etc. have been sanitized”

      Pratik Ghariwala, who runs a private pest control agency said, “On an average, we are doing sanitisation and disinfection job in five housing societies in a day. We are getting lot of inquiries on daily basis, but due to limited staff we are unable to reach everywhere.”

      Another pest control firm owner, Ravi Pujara said, “The residents in the city are really scared after one person died of COVID-19. We are getting 10 inquiries per day and our staff is always on their toes. We are using sanitisation chemical having 68% alcohol, which is enough to kill any kind of virus.”

      Raju Patel, president of Saipujya Apartment in City Light said, “We have disinfected the entire building and this will be performed after 10 days.”

      "All our sweepers are on leave due to the lockdown. So, we thought of sanitising the entire building and protecting our 200 families,” said Kirti Shah, president of Anmol apartment in Parle Point.

          Over 800 builders in Surat to boycott Chinese building materials

          Over 800 realtors affiliated with CREDAI-Surat have unanimously decided to boycott building material from China including kitchenware, bathroom fittings, furniture and window fittings etc.

          SURAT: With the tension between India and China flaring up with the killing of the 20 Indian soldiers, the call for boycotting Chinese goods has become stronger. Surat builders too have decided to join the bandwagon.

          Over 800 realtors affiliated with CREDAI-Surat have unanimously decided to boycott building material from China including kitchenware, bathroom fittings, furniture and window fittings etc.

          The CREDAI-Surat is set to pass a resolution to this effect in a day or two. The import of Chinese building materials by these builders is pegged at Rs 5,000 crore per annum.

          CREDAI-Gujarat president Ashish Patel also said that they have decided to boycott Chinese material.

          In fact, CREDAI has appealed its members pan India not to depend on Chinese manufactured goods. “We appeal to 20,000 developer members at CREDAI to not depend on Chinese goods and adopt ‘Swadeshi’ or ‘Made in India’ way of life and business,” said Jaxay Shah, chairman, CREDAI-National

          The national body of real estate developers has also requested all the 250 allied industries which are linked to the real estate sector to manufacture these products locally, especially the ones which are currently being imported from China and support the economy at large.

          Spokesperson of CREDAI-Surat, Naresh Agarwal told TOI, “This is a way to show our solidarity with the family of soldiers killed by the Chinese army on the border.”

          Agarwal added, “We have decided to pass a resolution on boycott of Chinese products and all our members have supported the decision.”

          President of Surat-CREDAI, Ravji Patel told TOI, “The existing material will be used, but the builders will not import new material from China for their projects.”

          Realtors preferred Chinese building products as they are cheap compared to the Indian products.

          However, boycotting these products will mean increase in property cost by about 15%.

          Surat builders are using 100% Chinese building materials. If suppose, the Chinese fittings in a flat costed Rs 5 lakh, it will be increased to Rs 7 lakh with the Indian fittings.

            Clarify if height of buildings is obstacle for Surat airport: Gujarat HC to DGCA

            hile hearing public interest litigation (PIL) filed with regards to the building height being the obstacle in flight patch, the HC on Monday stated that the displacement of Surat airport runway by 615 metres on the Vesu side was not acceptable.

            SURAT: Gujarat high court has asked the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to clarify whether the buildings falling in the approach funnel of Surat airport runway are obstacles or not.

            While hearing public interest litigation (PIL) filed with regards to the building height being the obstacle in flight patch, the HC on Monday stated that the displacement of Surat airport runway by 615 metres on the Vesu side was not acceptable.

            However, the DGCA has to submit whether the buildings were obstacles or not and the decision taken on the displacement of the runway.

            In the live streaming of the court proceedings, the HC rapped DGCA and the Airports Authority of India (AAI) for passing the buck and not allowing the proceedings to conclude. The court has given two days time to the AAI for submitting the list of obstacles on record.

            In December 2019, the HC had ordered the Centre, the AAI and the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) on the unauthorised construction obstructing the flight path at the Surat airport, during a hearing on the PIL. Various builders and residents of 48 projects consisting of 198 buildings had approached the HC in this regard.

            The clearance of obstacles in the approach at Vesu side will pave the way for clearing the displacement of 615 metres imposed by DGCA. This means that the aircraft landing from Vesu side will be able to use the full runway of 2,905 meter, instead of the current 2,290 metre.

            Sources said the survey of buildings obstructing the flight path within 6.6 km of the approach funnel of the runway at Vesu ended in 2018.
