    Housing societies requested to set up Covid care centres

    Tushar Pawar | TNN | Jul 22, 2020, 04:43 IST



    Nashik: Large residential societies and social organisations have been requested by the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) to set up Covid care centres (CCCs) within the housing societies for the isolation of patients who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms by adhering to all government norms.

    Such Covid care centres, however, will not be allowed to isolate the senior citizens, children below 10 years of age and patients with comorbid conditions. The NMC has taken this decision as per government guidelines.

    Social organisations and big residential societies that choose to set up these CCCs will have to appoint a caretaker at the centre, said the NMC officials.
    Around 85% of all Covid-19 patients are asymptomatic and get cured without requiring medical assistance. Only 15% of the patients need hospitalisation and just 5% of them need ventilator support.

    As per the guidelines of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), asymptomatic patients can stay at their homes provided they have adequate space and facilities.

    “We have already started home isolation facilities for asymptomatic patients in the city,” the officials said. However, asymptomatic patients who don’t have facilities at their homes are being treated in Covid care centres of the municipal corporation.

    Around 250 asymptomatic patients are currently recuperating at their homes, said the officials.

      13 shops with Rs 30L rent dues seized in Nashik Rd division

      Tushar Pawar | TNN | Jul 23, 2020, 04:35 IST


      Nashik: The civic body has seized 13 more shops (galas) located in commercial complexes in the Nashik Road division as their operators defaulted on payment of collective rent to the tune of Rs 30 lakh, despited reminders and warnings.

      This is the second time the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has taken action against the defaulters. A few days ago, 11 shops in the Satpur division were seized for defaulting on Rs 25 lakh towards rent.

      The NMC had set a 14-day ultimatum for clearing the dues to avoid legal action.

      “First we issued show-cause notices followed by final notices to the defaulters, but there were no replies. Now, we have issued a public notice, giving them the last opportunity to pay the rent dues within 14 days,” said a civic official.

      After Satpur and Nashik Road division, the civic body plans to take similar action against defaulters in the other four divisions — Nashik East, Nashik West, Panchavati and Cidco.

      The NMC owns 1,905 shops in commercial complexes and shopping centres across its six divisions and has given them on lease. The shops are rented out as per the ready reckoner (RR) rent while agreements are renewed once in three years.

        Structural audit must for buildings older than 30 years in Nashik

        The decision to this effect was taken following incidents of old wadas collapsing across the city in the last one year. Last year, over a dozen old wadas had collapsed during monsoon.
        NASHIK: The civic administration has made structural audit mandatory for buildings over 30 years old and warned that those who fail to do the needful will be slapped a fine of Rs 25,000.

        The decision to this effect was taken following incidents of old wadas collapsing across the city in the last one year. Last year, over a dozen old wadas had collapsed during monsoon.

        The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) had warned the occupants to vacate wadas but their appeal fell on deaf ears. This year too, an old wada collapsed last month in which one youth was killed and two others were injured.

        The civic body has appointed three agencies in the city to conduct structural audits. The owners of the buildings will have to get the structural audit done from the agency appointed by the NMC.

        The structural engineers of the agencies certified by the municipal corporation will inspect the buildings and will give certificates about the status of the building on whether it is fit for occupation or not.

        Moreover, the agency will also suggest the works that need to be carried to repair the old structures. Once the necessary works are carried out, the agency will submit a certificate stating that the structure is in a good condition to the divisional office of the municipal corporation. The owners of the old buildings will have to pay the service charges of Rs 23 per sq metre or at least Rs 5,000 each.

        The structure of the old buildings which are unsafe or dangerous will have to be removed by the owners on their own.

        The NMC has already identified 1,032 old and unsafe buildings in the city and served notices to the owners.

          Pune-Nashik corridor nod soon: Ajit Pawar

          Joy Sengupta | TNN | Aug 5, 2020, 14:06 IST



          PUNE: Deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar on Tuesday said the cabinet would soon approve the Pune-Nashik semihigh speed corridor project to ensure that its work started as early as possible.

          The ministry of railways approved the project last month. Pawar held a meeting to discuss the project with the authorities of the Maharashtra Rail Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (MRIDC) on Tuesday. “A presentation on the project was made before Pawar as well the MLAs present,” a source in the MRIDC said.

          The cost of the project has been pegged at Rs16,039 crore. The length of the corridor would be around 235.15km.

          The travel time from Pune to Nashik would be an hour and 45 minutes once the semi-high speed corridor is ready. The MRIDC will be developing some high speed trains, which will ply on the corridor with regular trains. The high speed trains will initially have six coaches and run at a speed of 200kmph.

          The corridor will pass through Pune, Ahmednagar and Nashik, providing connectivity to industrial zones such as Alandi, Chakan, Khed, Manchar and Narayangaon, among others.

            Real estate sector gets installment option from NMC

            Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Aug 13, 2020, 15:06 IST

            NASHIK: The ailing real estate sector has been provided with a relief by the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) towards payment of development and premium additional premium Floor Space Index (FSI) charges in three installments.

            The civic body has taken this initiative following drop in revenue through various taxes from the town planning department during the first four months of the current financial year due to Covid-19 outbreak.

            Earlier, the builders had to pay the money for development and for additional premium FSI charges while submitting the building plans. “But now we have decided to give them the option of paying the money in three installments,” a civic official said.

            The standing committee of the NMC has also given its approval to the proposal. Accordingly, builders will have to pay 30% of the charges while submission of the building plan, 40% after completion of the plinth and remaining 30% while obtaining building completion certificates (BCC).

            The town planning department of the civic body earns revenue through various taxes like building permission fees, lay-out fees, hardship premiums, development charges and fees through unauthorized constructions like closure of balcony, plinth settlement, among others. Around 60% of the total revenue comes from development and additional premium FSI charges.

            The NMC has collected around Rs 37 crore till August 10 in current financial year 2020-21 through various taxes of town planning department.

              Residential buildings ground zero now


              Tushar Pawar | TNN | Aug 14, 2020, 04:48 IST





              Nashik: The trend of Covid-19 cases has changed in Nashik city from slums to residential buildings. All the 1,255 active containment zones in the city as on Thursday are residential buildings.

              The numbers of active containment zones has doubled in just a week, from 635 by August to 1,255 on Thursday. These 1,255 buildings in the city have 3,238 active patients.

              Since the pandemic was announced, as many as 2,783 containment areas were drawn in the city. Of these, 1,528 have been released after the patients recovered and no new cases were reported.

              Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) officials said that Covid-19 spread in the slum pockets of Phule Nagar, Ram Nagar, Datta Nagar has been brought under control through increased tracing, testing and treatment of the patients.

              “The slums areas are under control due to various measures taken to curb the Covid-19 spread. The trend has now changed. The patients are now coming from residential buildings, societies or apartments,” said NMC commissioner Radhakrishna Game.

              He added that much like in the slums, the administration has increased training and testing in residential areas. “We are also conducting antigen tests in the affected buildings for early detection and providing immediate treatment to the patients,” said Game.

              Samir Chandratre, president of Indian Medical Association (IMA), Nashik, said some people are not taking Covid-19 seriously and not following safety protocols.

              “They should wear face masks and maintain physical distancing, but this is not happening. People should learn to take care of themselves and others too,” he said.

              The city has recorded 5,370 new positive cases during last 12 days, taking the tally from 9,441 cases on July 31 to 14,811 cases by August 12.

                Slow pace of road-widening work leads to minor accidents

                Santosh Sonawane | TNN | Aug 30, 2020, 04:38 IST



                Nashik: The Pune highway near Sinnar Phata has become slippery again due to the slow pace of road-widening work, which is leading to minor accidents on the highway, mainly bikers skidding on wet mud.

                Police personnel at the Sinnar Phata police station, while admitting the road has become slippery, said people do not come to them if the accidents are minor.
                However, too many minor accidents occur due to the slippery road. The shopkeepers along the highway complained that every time when it is raining, they see some bikers skidding off the road.

                Vivek Adke, a shopkeeper along the highway, said, “We see bikers skidding off the road every year when it is raining. My father too had fallen from his bike a couple of years ago. While the entire Pune highway has been widened till Sinnar and further up to Pune, the stretch of 2.5 km had not been taken up for at least five years. Hence after the structures by the road were removed for road widening, the side shoulders of the road have nothing concrete on them.”

                During monsoon, the wet soil on the side shoulders of the road are accumulated on the road due to continuous vehicular traffic and hence the surface become slippery.

                Officials of the public works department’s (PWD) highway division said there were some problems in the past like tress on the sides of the roads which had to be removed or transplanted, then two years passed as a petition was filed against cutting the trees and later the contractor said he started facing shortage of funds.

                However, officials of the highway division issued a strict notice to the contractor after which he has given the undertaking to complete the work at the earliest. Officials said the contractor has assured to finish the road widening work before March 2021.

                  NASHIK: The Nashik municipal corporation (NMC) has slashed its property tax collection target from Rs 150 crore to Rs 92 crore for the current financial year in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.

                  The property tax collection of the NMC between April 1 and August 31 has declined by 18% despite tax concessions upto 5% for prompt tax payers.

                  The municipal corporation collected property tax amounting to Rs 52.20 crore by August 31 in the current financial year as against Rs 63.62 crore during the same period last year.

                  The civic body had decided to give 5% concession in property tax to those who pay annual property tax between April 1 and June 30 and 3% concession if paid by July 31. The NMC had announced 2% concession for those paying tax by August 31.

                  According to NMC officials, the civic body cannot take harsh action against defaulters in the current scenario. They said that some people have lost their jobs while many are facing pay cuts. Moreover, trade and businesses have also been affected due to Covid-19.

                    No stamp duty for home buyers: Naredco

                    Tushar Pawar | TNN | Sep 4, 2020, 04:46 IST


                    Nashik: The Nashik chapter of National Real Estate Development Council (Naredco) on Thursday announced that home buyers will not have to pay any stamp duty if they book an apartment in projects that are managed by any of its members.

                    The real estate body said that it has taken this decision in a bid to boost the realty sector in Nashik. Around 50 builders are members of Naredco and there are over 200 under construction residential projects in various locations across the city. “During lockdown, Naredco had urged the government that it would pay the remaining stamp duty if the government reduced the 3% stamp duty to boost the sector. Accordingly, we have decided to give relief to prospective home buyers from paying stamp duty. Naredco members will pay the stamp duties on behalf of the home buyers for houses booked till December 31,” Jayesh Thakkar, senior founder member of Naredco Nashik, said.

                      Smart city proposes cycle track in Nashik


                      Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Sep 6, 2020, 11:29 IST





                      NASHIK: The Nashik Municipal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd. (NMSCDCL) has proposed a 13 km-long cycle track in the city on both sides of roads from Ashok Stambh to Papaya Nursery via Trimbak Naka on Trimbak Road.

                      The project has been undertaken with the aim of enabling people to use eco-friendly way of travelling to their destinations and thus making Nashik a cycle-friendly city.

                      “We have initiated a survey of the route to check for the possibilities of developing the track between Trimbak Naka to Papaya Nursery on Trimbak Road of the city,” said a smart city official.

                      “Plans are also afoot to connect both Satpur and Ambad industrial estates of Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) with cycle tracks so that workers can use cycles to reach the workplaces,” said an official.

                      The NMSCDCL has already developed cycle tracks on both sides of roads on 1.1 km stretch of smart road between Ashok Stambh and Trimbak Naka.

                      Nashik smart city has participated in the ‘India cycles for change challenge’ launched by the ministry of housing and urban affairs along with smart cities mission and the institute for transportation and development policy (ITDP) to support Indian cities to quickly implement cycling-friendly initiatives.
