    NASHIK: The Nashik Municipal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (NMSCDCL) will roll out the much-awaited on-street and off-street smart parking at 15 locations across the city from July 1.

    The project will go a long way in de-congesting some of the city’s busiest roads. The total capacity of these 15 smart parking spaces will be 3,176 vehicles — 2,190 for two-wheelers and 986 for four-wheelers.

    The advantage of this smart parking initiative is that you will be able to check for free parking space available at a particular lot and pre-book it online. The Information Communication Technology-based (ICT) parking management system will assist in providing real time information about vacant parking spots through a mobile application. It will also have multiple payment options like smart cards, tokens, and e-payment.

    This system is part of modernisation of parking spaces by providing sensors and cameras for data collection on parking lot capacity and availability. The parking charges will be based on hourly basis. Also, there will be uniform parking charges for all the spaces — Rs 10/hour for two-wheelers and Rs20/hour for four-wheelers.

    A private company, Trigyn Technologies Pvt Ltd has won the bid for setting up a total of 33 smart parking spaces across the city, including 28 on-street and 5 off-street ones.

    “In the first phase, we are making 15 parking spaces operational by July 1, while the remaining 18 are to be made operational in phase-wise manner,” a smart city official said.
    “We have already developed the smart parking app called Nashik Smart Parking using which the motorists can check availability of the parking slots online. They may even make pre-booking online through the app that can be downloaded from Google Play Store,” he added.

    The app will go live from July 1. Moreover, Virtual Message Displays (VMD) has been put up at each smart parking space to display vacant parking lots available at that particular lot.

      Nashik civic body to approve building plans offline from Tuesday

      The civic body will start offline approvals from Tuesday. The city builders had made several complaints to commissioner about AutoDCR and had urged him to bring into effect offline procedure.Tushar Pawar | TNN | June 17, 2019, 18:00 IST

      NASHIK: Following the technical snags in the AutoDCR – the online software to approve building plans – along with the failure of contractor to rectify the software, the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has decided to give approval to building plan proposals and other procedure off-line instead of online.

      The civic body will start offline approvals from Tuesday. The city builders had made several complaints to commissioner about AutoDCR and had urged him to bring into effect offline procedure.

      The civic body had started an online system called Auto DCR for submission of building plans after a Pune-based private firm developed the software and monitored and implemented it two years ago.

      However, there have been several defects in the software. According to the officials, the online software does not operate as per the Development Control (DC) rules and it calculates FSI incorrectly.

      “We had issued notices and ultimatums to the company several times and asked them to rectify the software; however, they did not do it. There is no progress or improvement in the AutoDCR, NMC sources said.

      The municipal commissioner Radhakrishna Game has already given directive to the civic body to blacklist the concerned contractor.

      As there have been continuous complains by the city builders in approving the building plans and conducting other procedure through AutoDCR, we have decided to stop the functioning of the online system and start procedure manually,” NMC sources said.

      “We will start offline procedure of the town planning department for building plan approval from Tuesday,” they added.

          New Dindori MIDC may attract over Rs 2,000 crore

          Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Jun 17, 2019, 16:26 IST

          NASHIK: The Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) CEO P.Anbalagan believes the new industrial estate at Talegaon-Akrale in Dindori taluka of the district has huge investment potential and it may attract investment worth over Rs 2,000 crore in next six months.

          During his recent visit to Nashik, Anbalagan said that MIDC is already in talks with some large industries to make investment and soon more investment will follow the route.

          “Earlier, industries had to go for expansion in industrial estate where they have their existing plants. But we relaxed this norms and they may obtain land from MIDC in any industrial estate in the district or elsewhere,” said Anbalagan.

          Both Satpur and Abamd industrial estates are fully occupied and there is no land available for existing industries for expansion. Hence, they have opportunities to go for expansion at the new industrial estate coming up at Talegaon-Akrale near Nashik city, he said.

          Anbalagan mentioned that the MIDC is in process of acquiring land at various locations for the industries in the district. “We are acquiring land for industries in Sinnar and also at Rajur Bahula near Nashik city,” he said.

          MIDC has proposed 337 hectares at Talegaon-Akrale. Of which, over 200 hectares have been acquired with infrastructure works like roads, streetlights and water supply have been developed there. The corporation has already started process of allotment of land at Talegaon-Akrale industrial areas. Earlier, the authority had invited applications online to allot 11 plots admeasuring total 10.21 hectares.

          The new industrial estate is located just 18 kms from Nashik city and the new airport terminal at Ozar is very close to it. Hence, this new estate has huge potential to attract new investment there considering its proximity to city, airport and highway.

          MIDC had fixed the land rate to Rs 3,000 per sq metre there. Replying to that the Nashik Industries & Manufactures Associations (NIMA) urged the MIDC to reduce the rates to Rs 2,000 per sq metre for the first six months after commencement of the land allotment.

            Central survey on Nashik metro project on the cards

            Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Jun 19, 2019, 11:31 IST


            Representative image

            NASHIK: The central government has directed its central agency RITES Ltd to seek feedback from the residents about various aspects of the Nashik metro project, and also conduct topographical survey to prepare detailed project report (DPR).

            The agency will conduct a door-to-door survey in the city on the issue, seeking feedback about present plight of the public transport and their expectations about the metro project.

            NMC has given its permission to Rites to conduct the survey and a consent letter mentioning the same.

            Moreover, Rites will also conduct topographical survey, which includes casting of DGPS pillars, traversing, levelling and detailing along the road in the public premises grounds, parks, depot area and collection of utilities data along the corridor in Nashik.

            Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (Maha Metro) has already conducted feasibility report amounting to Rs 1,800 crore. The project will see deployment of high-speed mass transit urban trams - each carrying up to 80 passengers at a time. Two trackless elevated corridors - about 28 kilometres long - would be constructed as part of the Nashik project.

            The corridor will accommodate high-speed rubber-tyred urban trams drawing power from overhead electric cables. One elevated corridor with a length of 18.45 km will stretch from Shramik Nagar to Nashik railway station with 17 stations.

            The second elevated corridor will be from Gangapur to Mumbai Naka - a distance of 9.45 km. This corridor will have 10 stations. But these high-speed trams will be able to leave the elevated corridors and ply on normal city roads for about 25 km under battery power.

            After the feasibility reports by the Maha Metro, the detailed project reports (DPR) of the project is to be done by the Rites Ltd.

            During the household survey, they will take information from families about the transport they are using and what kind of transport system the residents are expecting. Moreover, the agency will also take feedback about their daily travelling.

            Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd has awarded the work for preparation of the DPR for Nashik Metro Project to Rites Ltd.

            Meanwhile, the agency has engaged Noida-based M/s Skylark Designer and Engineers Pvt Ltd to carry out the work of Topographic survey for the Nashik Metro project in the city.

              NMC identifies 106 sites to harvest rain


              Tushar Pawar | Updated: Jun 20, 2019, 4:06 IST

              Nashik: After directive from municipal commissioner Radhakrishana Game, the town planning and public works department has identified 106 sites, including its own buildings and open spaces, where rainwater harvesting will be developed.

              Rainwater harvesting is mandatory as per development control and promotion regulation (DCPR) of Nashik approved by the state government in January 2017. Recently, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) also ordered all municipal corporations to start imposing fines on residential and commercial complexes that do not have rainwater harvesting.

              Accordingly, the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has already started taking measures in this regard. But as part of this, the NMC has also started provisions of rainwater harvesting at its own buildings and properties like open spaces.

              “We have identified 106 spots where rainwater harvesting is to be done. The objective to increase ground water table,” an NMC official said.

              “We have already made provisions for rainwater harvesting at 39 spots, including buildings and open spaces of the municipal corporation, while remaining spots are also to be covered under rainwater harvesting within a month,” he added.

              The building completion certificate (BCC) is given by the town planning department of the NMC only after inspecting if there is provision of rainwater harvesting on the land admeasuring 500 metre and above.

              Moreover, it is also mandatory that the provision of rainwater harvesting is functional and in good condition or else fine of Rs1,000 is to be imposed for per 100sqmt per year.

              Rainwater harvesting is nothing but a way of increasing ground water table by storing rainwater through refilling of wells, recharging hand pumps and percolation pits etc.

              The issue came to surface after NGT in March this year directed the civic administration there to slap fine of Rs5 lakh on projects that do not have rainwater harvesting.

              All big residential societies, commercial complexes, hospitals, educational institutes, industries and other organisations should make provision for rainwater harvesting before this rainy season.

              According to the order, municipal corporations should implement rainwater harvesting in their respective jurisdictions, and should slap fines if the order is not followed.

                Nashik civic body to crack the whip on property, water tax defaulters

                Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Jun 23, 2019, 16:43 IST

                NASHIK: With an aim to boost the revenue of the municipal corporation to raise funds for developmental works, municipal commissioner Radhakrishna Gamesaid on Friday that the civic administration would come down heavily on those defaulting payment of property and water taxes.

                Game also made it clear that additional works worth Rs 350 crore suggested by the general body in its budget would be carried out only if Nashik Municipal Corporation’s (NMC) income increased through taxes from the town Planning, property and water tax departments.

                In February, the municpal commissioner had presented a budget worth Rs 1,894.50 crore for the current fiscal 2019-20. The corpus was increased by another Rs 89.50 crore to take the total budget to Rs 1,984 crore by NMC’s standing committee.

                Thereafter, the general body of the civic administration made provisions for additional works amounting to Rs 352.38 crore, taking the total budget to Rs 2,335.87 crore.

                “I had presented the budget on time in February considering possible income and the works suggested by the corporators. The income through GST is fixed. We don’t have any other source of income except revenue from the town planning, property and water taxes,” said Game.

                He further said, “There is a need to increase NMC’s revenue, which necessiates the need to take action against those defaulting payment of property and water tax. We will carry out the additional works worth Rs 350 crore only if we get more revenue through taxes.”

                He said that the civic body’s main focus would be on the defaulters and that he has issued directions to the concerned departments to prepare a list of those who are yet to clear their pending dues.

                According to Game, NMC would bring around 59,000 new properties under the property and water tax nets.

                Game said, “We have already given a boost to various developmental works as per provision in the budget of the civic administration, considering the code of conduct that may come into effect in the next two to three months due to the forthcoming state assembly elections.”

                “The tenders for some developmental works will be floated soon. Our major focus is on works related to drinking water, drainage and road works,” added Game.

                  NMC plans to create 650-metre barrier-free stretch on Trimbak Road

                  Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Jun 24, 2019, 11:17 IST

                  The project is estimated to cost Rs 4.5 crore to the NMC


                  NASHIK: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) is planning to develop a barrier free road for a stretch of 650 metres between Trimbak Naka Signal to Savarkar Swimming pool along Trimbak Road.

                  The stretch is known for its huge traffic on the road and the proposed project will help residents to walk safely and ride cycle on the footpath.

                  The project is estimated to cost Rs 4.5 crore to the NMC. "We have already given work order to Nashik-based private contractor, who have already started working on the project," said a NMC official.

                  He further said that the project is being developed in line with a smart road and will be completed in three to four months' time. "In this case, we will not touch the existing roads and traffic will not get affected," he added.

                  According to the plan, there will be a footpath and cycle track with width of 3.5 metre and 3 metre on both sides of the road. Moreover, a drainage line and cable ducts will also to be constructed below the footpath and cycle tracks, said the official.

                  The Nashik Municipal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (NMSCDCL) is already developing the pilot smart road stretch from Ashok Stambh to Trimbak Naka, with total stretch of 1.1 km. This project is about transforming chaotic road image to a smart road and will be completed in next couple of months.

                  Proposed features of the project include uniform standard carriage from one junction to another, properly designed footpaths, bicycle lane, road intersection development, infrastructure utility ducts below footpaths, road marking, proper storm water drainage and landscaping to increase overall aesthetics of the road.

                  The barrier free road is being constructed from the point where smart pilot road project ends at Trimbak Naka towards Savarkar swimming pool.

                    'Stop action against illegal religious structures'


                    Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Jun 26, 2019, 12:38 IST


                    NASHIK: Blaming the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) for conducting a wrong survey, the corporators have asked the civic body to stop its action against illegal religious structures until the state government takes a decision on General Body's resolution for regularising 15% construction of the structures on open spaces.

                    The demand was made during on Tuesday's General Body Meeting (GBM). As per directive of the Bombay High Court, the NMC had conducted a survey and published a list of over 900 illegal religious structures in the city.

                    However, the corporators said that the civic administration hurriedly conducted wrong survey and the properties on open spaces and not causing hurdles to the traffic have also been termed as illegal.

                    "Religious structures that are on open spaces and not causing hurdles to the traffic should have been exempted from action. The civic administration is responsible for today's panic situation created among city residents," leader of the House Dinkar Patil said.

                    As per state government norms, 15% of the structures on open space built for social purpose are regularised. On the same ground, the general body of NMC had decided to give relief to religious structures on such open spaces in 2017 after which the civic body has sent the resolution of the GBM for its approval.

                    The resolution was immediately sent to the state government for its approval, and it is yet to get the nod. These religious structures will get relief from demolition if the government gives the green light.

                      'Unseal civic properties given to social outfits'


                      Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Jun 26, 2019, 12:39 IST


                      Representative image

                      NASHIK: Elected representatives cutting across party lines lashed out at the civic administration at the general body meeting of the civic administration on Tuesday for sealing several of its properties which were given for a social cause, but were being used for commercial purposes.

                      The corporators demanded Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) to unseal the properties on a priority basis. However, no decision was taken by the mayor till late evening.

                      City-based educationist Ratan Luth had filed a PIL at the Bombay high court (HC) over the misuse of NMC's properties. During a hearing in April, the HC had directed the civic administration to submit a status report on the properties that were given to social institutes and NGOs at nominal rates during a hearing on May 3.

                      However, NMC failed to submit the report. The HC had then pulled up the municipal corporation for not maintaining a records of its properties. It also directed municipal commissioner Radhakrishna Game to remain present during the next hearing on June 3.

                      After being pulled up by the HC, NMC started taking action against the properties being misused and sealed 382 of the its 945 properties across six divisions.

                      All political parties had urged the civic chief to soften its stand against the properties which were being run for a social cause. Thereafter, NMC decided to relieve those properties which were being used directly by the public and also renew agreements of those properties which were being used by social outfits and NGOs at lease rate of 2.5% of Ready Reckoner (RR) rate. Accordingly, NMC has lifted the seal on 112 properties. However, around 270 properties are still under lock and key.

                      "There was no mention of sealing the properties in the HC order. The civic administration still went ahead with sealing properties were being used for social causes like study halls, libraries, yoga hall, laughter clubs etc," said senior corporator Gurumit Bagga.

                      Leader of the opposition from Shiv Sena Ajay Boraste also flayed the civic administration for sealing the properties. Game informed the house about the policy of the state government with regard to properties owned by the civic body.

                      "We have already sent a policy on NMC properties which is pending with the government. Moreover, the state government has proposed Unified Development Control and Promotion Regulations across the state excluding Mumbai Municipal Corporation as per which the civic body should lease out properties through auction and also as per Ready Reckoner (RR) rates or market value of the properties,"said Game.

                      He further said, "The government has proposed lease rate of 8% RR rate of the properties and sought suggestions from the municipal commissioners. I have informed the state that lease rate of 8% of RR rate will not be possible and that it be reduced."
