    NMC gets good response for proposed flyover project

    Tushar Pawar | TNN | Feb 5, 2021, 04:54 IST


    Nashik: The civic administration has received good response to its bids for the construction of the two flyovers that will be built at Mico Circle on Trimbak Road and Untawadi area at a total cost of Rs 245 crore.

    Sanjay Ghuge, city engineer of Nashik Municipal Corporation, said while four agencies have filed bids for the proposed flyover near Utawadi area, two agencies have evinced interest in the construction of the flyover at Mico Circle.

    “As per norms, at least two agencies need to file the bids during the tender process. We are in the process of finalizing the contractors. The work orders are to be issued within a couple of weeks following permission from the standing committee of the civic administration,” said Ghuge.

    “The works for both the flyovers are expected to begin from next month. The provision for one-third amount of the total project cost is to be made in the budget of the civic body during the coming financial year,” he said.

    The NMC had recently completed the survey before floating bids for the construction of the two flyovers in the city.

    The proposed flyover at Mico Circle is to be built on a 800m stretch between Ved Mandir and traffic signal near Hotel Green View. The project is estimated to cost Rs 125 crore. The other flyover project near Untawadi towards Cidco cost Rs 120 crore.

    The civic administration has decided to complete the flyover projects at the earliest as it will ease traffic congestion.

      NMC forgoes tax hikes for next fiscal

      Ranjan Dasgupta | TNN | Feb 7, 2021, 04:30 IST



      Nashik: Severe financial crisis notwithstanding, the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) is unlikely to propose any hike in the various taxes or impose any new taxes for 2021-22.

      Municipal commissioner Kailas Jadhav will present the draft budget for the next financial year to the civic body’s standing committee this month for approval.

      “The civic administration will not have any proposal to increase the existing tax structures in different segments like property, water etc. We will also not have any new tax proposal in the draft budget,” Jadhav told TOI.

      The outlay for the 2021-22 budget will be similar to the one that the NMC had for the current financial year, said the civic chief.

      “People are facing financial problems following the Covid pandemic. We do not want to aggravate their financial woes by hiking taxes or imposing new ones. We would concentrate on meeting the revenue collection targets set for 2021-22,” added Jadhav. The civic administration’s decision should be a relief to the citizens.

      The NMC will also not be able to collect revenue as per its target in the current fiscal. “Our revenue collection for this financial year would be less by over Rs 300 crore compared to the target that was set. It has been impacted due to the pandemic,” he said.

      The civic authorities are working overtime to realize dues from defaulters of property tax, water tax etc. to garner as much revenue as possible before the end of the current financial year. An amnesty scheme was floated in December 2020 offering waivers to property tax defaulters in penalty, warrants and notice fees.

      “The main thrust in the ensuing budget would be on health, education and environment sectors. We would be making sizeable allocation in these sectors for the next financial year. There will reduction of projects in some other sectors as such projects can be taken up later,” added the civic chief.

        Nashik Municipal Corporation to digitalise all key papers

        Tushar Pawar | TNN | Updated: Feb 9, 2021, 14:07 IST

        NASHIK: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC), following the recent fire at its headquarters (Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan), has started the process to digitalise and preserve all the important documents.

        The Information & Technology (IT) department of the civic body has asked the town planning and the birth and death certificates departments to preserve their documents through digitalisation.

        The IT department has already provided jumbo scanning machines to the town planning department and medium-sized scanners to the birth and death certificates departments in all the six divisions of the civic body.

        “We had recently scanned around 70,000 major documents related to the TDR, lay-outs, maps and other major documents through an agency under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Now, we are in the process of scanning or digitalising other major documents related to the town planning department,” Rajendra Aher, executive engineer of NMC, said.

          NMC issues warrants to 40 big property tax defaulters

          Tushar Pawar | TNN | Feb 9, 2021, 04:36 IST




          Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has started issuing warrants to confiscate the properties of property tax defaulters,who have not paid their dues despite getting notices several times. This comes after a significant drop in revenue through property tax collection.

          The civic body, on Monday, issued warrants to 40 big property tax defaulters with dues of more than Rs 1 lakh. There are around 1,000 property taxpayers who have dues of over Rs 1 lakh.

          Municipal commissioner Kailas Jadhav has already directed all the six divisional officers of the NMC to start taking action against the big property tax defaulters. Nashik Road divisional office has started issuing warrants from Monday, while other divisions will start issuing warrants in a day or two.

          “We are targeting big property tax defaulters with more than Rs 1 lakh as dues as per the directive of the civic head. We have issued warrants to 40 big property tax defaulters with an ultimatum of one month to pay the property tax dues. We will confiscate the properties thereafter and such properties will be auctioned,” said Dilip Menkar, the divisional officer of Nashik Road division.

          In the past two months, NMC had given final notices to over 1.25 lakh property taxpayers asking them to pay their dues. But most of the defaulters have not done so. Hence, the civic body has decided to issue warrants to the defaulters.

          The NMC administration has set a property tax collection target of Rs 150 crore for the current financial year, but they could only collect Rs 95 crore so far.

          With one-and-a-half months remaining in the current year, NMC is yet to collect Rs 55 crore in property tax. During the corresponding period last financial year, NMC had collected around Rs 132 crore.

            NMC seeks guidance about revision of 200 building plans

            Tushar Pawar | TNN | Feb 11, 2021, 04:43 IST




            Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has decided to seek guidance from the state urban development department about the revision of the old buildings plans as per the new unified Development Control Promotion & Regulations(DCPR).

            A section of builders, who had already received approval for the building plans from the town planning department of NMC and completed constructions up to plinth, have now submitted their revised plans as per the new norms to the town planning department for its approval .

            Government has given more FSI and premium benefits in unified DCPR as compared to the old one. Hence, some builders have submitted revised plans to the NMC. The new unified DCPR was introduced by the state government with effect from December 2 last year.

            “There is no clarity about the revision of the old building plans, which were already approved by the civic body. Hence, we have put on hold all such 200 proposals,” said Rajendra Aher, executive engineer of the town planning department of NMC.

            “We have sought the guidance from the state government in this connection. We will take decision on the issue after we receive communication from the state government,” he added.

              NMC waives Jan-March period penalty for regular taxpayers

              Tushar Pawar | TNN | Feb 11, 2021, 04:44 IST



              Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has waived monthly penalty of 2% for three months between January and March for the regular taxpayers during the current financial year to boost the property tax collection.

              As per the norms, taxpayers have to pay their annual property tax payment by December 31 every year. Thereafter, the civic body levies a penalty of 2% on the tax amount every month on dues.

              “But to increase the property tax collection, we have decided not to levy penalty to the taxpayers if they pay their property tax for the current financial year by March 31. This is a part of our measure to give opportunities to the regular taxpayers to pay their property tax for the current financial year,” said Manoj Sangamnere, the assistant superintendent (tax) of the NMC.

              NMC has set the property tax collection target of Rs 360 crore for 2020-21, including current demand of Rs 128 crore and remaining Rs 232 crore tax dues. So far, the civic body has earned revenue of Rs 97 crore through property tax, including around 75% of the amount from current demand and the remaining 25% as tax dues.

              In the corresponding period last year, the civic body had collected property tax of Rs 135 crore. There has been a drop of 28% in the property tax collection by November 9 of the current financial year against the property tax collection during the same period last year.

              The civic body has already introduced an amnesty scheme for the property tax defaulter. As per the amnesty scheme, the property tax defaulters will get 50% rebate on penalty of tax dues if they pay tax dues between January 16 and February 15. The defaulters will get 25% rebate if they pay all tax dues between February 16 and 28.

              The NMC administration has warned of action against the tax defaulters in March if they fail to clear their property tax dues.

                NMC to provide funds for Nashik metro project

                Tushar Pawar | TNN | Feb 12, 2021, 04:46 IST

                Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has done a turnaround on its stand about funding the city’s metro project. It has now agreed to provide funds for the project.

                The tyre-based Nashik metro project is estimated to cost Rs 2,092 crore. The project is partially funded by the state government, which had earlier asked the civic body to chip in with some amount.

                However, the NMC had then told the government that it would not be possible to provide funds. The NMC had also written a letter to the state government, citing its inability to provide funds of its share,which is estimated at Rs 102 crore, as it will be providing land for creating infrastructure for the project.

                “We had earlier urged the government to exempt the civic body from any financial burden of the project as it will be providing land for the project. But since it is an ambitious project and will fuel the growth of the city, we have decided to follow the further instructions of the state government,” said municipal commissioner Kailas Jadhav.

                “We will provide funds of our share for the project if the state government asks us for it. We are awaiting instructions from the state government on the issue,” he added.

                Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman has announced allocation of Rs 2,092 crore for the Nashik metro project. During his visit to Nashik on Wednesday, deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar said that the state government will also allocate funds for the project although the quantum is yet to be decided.

                The Nashik metro model, called the Metro Neo, has been touted as the prototype to be followed by tier II cities. The rubber-tyred AC electric coaches with a capacity to carry around 300 passengers will ply on two elevated corridors, stretching 32 km.

                One elevated corridor with a length of 22-km will stretch from Gangapur to Nashik railway station with 19 stations, via Satpur colony, CBS and Dwarka and towards Nashik Road. Another elevated corridor will be of 10-km stretch between Gangapur and Mumbai Naka with 10 stations.

                Apart from the two elevated corridors,there will be two feeder routes with a total length of 24 km.Battery-powered feeder buses will run on the feeder routes and also on the elevated wires.

                  Property row claims elderly man’s life in Nashik, 3 held

                  NASHIK: A man and two of his sons have been arrested for their alleged involvement in the murder of an elderly man in Shinde village on Monday night.

                  Assistant inspector of police Nitin Kandare said the deceased, Bhaskar Salve (60), and his brother Ramchandra Salve were brothers who resided close to one another on their ancestral land. The two brothers have been at loggerheads with each other for a long time owing to some dispute over the distribution of their ancestral land.

                  Around 9.30pm on Monday, both the brothers got into an argument over vehicle parking. The argument took a violent turn with Ramchandra Salve’s two sons and other family members pitching into the scuffle and beating up Bhaskar.

                  Bhaskar’s son Sandeep also intervened and lost the ring finger on his right hand after he was attacked by a cousin with a sharp weapon. Meanwhile, Bhaskar suffered serious injuries and was declared brought dead at Nashik civil hospital.

                  Since Bhaskar’s relatives also attacked Ramchandra’s family members, the situation became quite tense along the Naygaon Road in Shinde village of Nashik Road. Sandeep registered a complaint against seven members of his uncle’s family with Nashik Road police. Later in the night, an FIR was also registered by Ramchandra family.

                    Nashik city police to focus on land sharks

                    Santosh Sonawane | TNN | Feb 24, 2021, 04:00 IST


                    Nashik: Commissioner of police Deepak Pandey said that going by the recent murder that took place in the Gangapur area of Nashik city, land sharks could be active and appropriate action will be taken against them.

                    The CP has appealed to the citizens that if they are being pressurized by someone to sell off their land, they should immediately approach the police and lodge a complaint.
                    On February 17, a 75-year-old farmer was stabbed to death by unidentified people in the Anandwali area falling under the jurisdiction of Gangapur police station.

                    While the police has arrested six people on the suspicion of their involvement in the murder, Pandey said that he suspected the involvement of land sharks in the incident.

                    “Such land sharks would not be spared by police. There could be many civil cases in courts over land disputes. However, if someone is pressuring a landlord to sell off his land, then it is a problem. If lands are sold from outside pressure, police will definitely look into the issue,” said Pandey.

                    “Such landlords can approach the police with their problem and necessary action will be taken against the culprits. We would take strict action like arresting land sharks under stringent acts,” the CP added.

                      Barrier-free road in Nashik to get an extension

                      Tushar Pawar | TNN | Feb 26, 2021, 04:35 IST



                      Nashik: The civic administration, which is constructing a barrier-free road from Trimbak Naka signal to Savarkar swimming pool, has decided to extend the stretch up to Sharanpur junction on the Trimbak Road.

                      Commissioner of Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) Kailas Jadhav has made an additional provision of Rs 5 crore for the purpose in the budget of the civic body for the next financial year.

                      “The first phase of the barrier free-road is already in progress and the finishing works are expected to be completed in a month or two,” said R Bagul, a civic official.

                      “We have already constructed a footpath and a cycle track with a width of 3.5m and 3m respectively on both sides of the road. Moreover, a drainage line, storm water lines and cable ducts have been constructed below the footpath and the cycle tracks,” he said.

                      “Earlier, the road near the swimming pool would get water logged during monsoon. This year, waterlogging did not happen due to the storm water lines,” said Bagul.

                      Now, the stretch from Savarkar swimming pool to Sharanpur road junction will be an extension of the barrier-free road with footpaths and cycle tracks on both sides. The length of the expanded stretch is expected to be around 600m and is expected to be completed in a year.
