    Nashik farmers set up pyres to fight land acquisition for e-way

    Abhilash Botekar| TNN | Updated: Jul 10, 2017, 01.05 PM IST

    NASHIK: A section of farmers have continued their opposition to the state government's move to acquire their land for construction of the Nagpur-Mumbai expressway.

    Some farmers have hung nooses on trees and set up pyres on their farms to send a message to the government that they would rather embrace death than part with their land.

    "We will not give our land at any cost. The government can construct the highway through the nearby hills where nothing grows; the farmers there would be more than happy to get compensation," said Keshav Harak of Shivade village, as he prepared a pyre in his farm. The protests come in the wake of the district administration announcing rates for direct purchase of land through negotiations saying if the move fails, forced acquisition would be the only way out. Earlier, the farmers had hung nooses in their farms when land measurement was being carried out.

    "Every step the administration takes for land acquisition, will see our protests escalate. This time we are preparing the pyres and it is for us," said Kiran Harak, a local. Sunil Pawar of Sonambe village questioned the project. "Small pieces of land being taken away for public projects can be understood. This is not a common public road; it will have controlled access," he said. "The day the government tries to take over the land we will end our lives," Sunil Wagh, another farmer warned.

      Commuters, industrialists look for faster work on 4-laning of NH50

      Santosh Sonawane| TNN | Jul 19, 2017, 12:46 PM IST

      NASHIK: Commuters and industrialists from Nashik are hoping for faster completion of four-laning work of the Nashik-Pune highway (NH50), as it would reduce the travelling time between the two cities and also provide new opportunities to villages and towns along the highway.

      Over the past few years, the number of vehicles plying on the highway has been increasing. Before the four-laning work started three years ago, the number of vehicles using this highway was around 18,000 passenger car units (PSU) a day. PSU is used to assess traffic flow on highways. One passenger car is considered as one PSU, a bus or a truck is considered as three PSUs, while an autorickshaw is half PSU).

      Now, the traffic flow on the highway is around 21,000 a day, said an NHAI official.

      Industrialists said the traffic had to increase with the rise in population and people having nearly no other option than to use the road to travel between the two cities for work, business, education, etc.

      The rail connectivity between Nashik and Pune is extremely poor. There is only one train connecting these cities, which goes via Kalyan.

      According to commuters, though the distance from Nashik to Mumbai and Pune are almost the same, it takes five-and-a-half hours to reach Pune, compared to three-and-a-half hours to reach Mumbai.

      Abhay Kulkarni, industrialist and president of Nashik First organisation, said, "It is essential that the entire highway between Nashik and Pune is widened as early as possible. A large number of people are travelling between these two cities. Once the highway is widened, it will bring development to towns and villages along the highway."

      Kulkarni added, "Even if the stretch from Chakan to Sinnar is widened, it would be a boon for the Sinnar industrial area. Pune has reached a point of saturation. Now, if the industries there have to expand more, Sinnar will be the best alternative for them. Chakan is a hub of automobile industries. Once the stretch between Chakan and Sinnar is complete and if the goods vehicles can travel between these two towns in about two hours, Sinnar will witness huge development, considering that the companies can get labourers at a lower cost than the cost in Pune, since it is a drought-prone area."

        Agency to take over digitilisation of NMC documents

        Tushar Pawar| TNN | Jul 27, 2017, 09:33 AM IST


        NASHIK: The civic administration has decided to appoint a new agency to digitalise all their existing and old documents in a bid to preserve them.

        The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) will appoint an agency for a five years, during which it will develop, design and digitalise all the documents to protect the data. Tenders have been floated inviting bids from interested parties to carry out this exercise.

        There are a total of 1.10 crore old important documents from various departments of the civic body to be digitalised. In order to decide which documents need to be digitalised, the NMC has formed a committee of civic officials for it.

        A civic official said, "The agency will be appointed for five years to monitor the digitalisation of documents. So, now there will be no issue of major documents missing as they will be digitalised and can be found in a click."

        The NMC had thought of the project about four years back, after a fire took place at the top four floors of the eight-storey Mantralaya in Mumbai where thousands of sensitive documents, computer files and records pertaining to land use, de-reservation and the crucial Adarsh society scam were destroyed.

        Around two years back, the civic body again planned the project, but it could not work out due to the Kumbh Mela. Back then, the NMC also had no full-time commissioner. This delayed the project.

        "The municipal corporation has documents since 1992, but the condition of most of those documents is not good. So, we want to protect these documents through digitalisation. We had recently sought information from every department on the number of documents required to be digitalised. Accordingly, we have a total of 1.10 crore old documents, including 65 lakh documents from the town planning department alone. Now, these all documents will be digitalised," said an official.

          Shiv Sena minister too under fire for Nashik farmers' plot 'allotted to private party'

          TNN | Aug 5, 2017, 12:06 PM IST


          NCP's Dhananjay Munde said MIDC led by industries minister Subhash Desai had denotified 400 hectares of land in Gonde Dhumala village in Nashik district acquired from farmers in 2007-08.

          The land was denotified and allotted to a private party, he alleged. The total acquired land was nearly 750 hectares. He demanded Desai's resignation and alleged the land was given to a person close to a Shiv Sena leader. But Desai said chunks of the land had been denotified between 2011 and '14.

          The Congress-NCP govt denotified nearly 370 hectares and fragmented the plot so the govt could not set up any industry there. "The plot was not given to any private person," said an official from Desai's office.
