    Nashik : New Destination

    PUNE: After Pune, it could be destination Nashik for industry as Pune is fast running out of land. The vigorous land acuisition by the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) and private industry here is soon going to ensure this.

    Sources said that the state government’s industrial infrastructure development arm is looking to create a land bank of between 10,000-20,000 hectares in the two cities, Pune and Nashik, with emphasis on the latter.

    However, the attraction of destination Pune remains. MIDC is looking to acquire land for which notifications have been issued at Ranjangaon, Talegaon, Chakan, Karla and Khed.

    The state government is believed to have received 1800 applications for the Chakan industrial area, 1100 for Ranjangaon and 600 for Talegaon. The land bank with the MIDC, Pune region, is close to being exhausted and it is facing problems in acquiring new land.

    Industry experts think Nashik will prove to be the alternative to Pune. “Nashik, with it’s huge land availability, abudant water supply and connectivity with Mumbai offers ideal locations. It has got mild climate like Pune too,” sources said.

    NMC collects Rs 9.3 crore in property tax

    Tushar Pawar / TNN / May 9, 2021, 22:09 IST



    Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Corporation’s (NMC) decision to introduce a 5% tax rebate for prompt tax-payers — paying complete annual property tax in one go — has started showing positive results.

    The NMC has collected property tax amounting to Rs 9.27 crore between April 1 and May 7 in the current financial year, giving much-needed relief to the civic body. During the same period last year, the NMC’s property tax collection was only Rs 4.30 crore.

    An NMC official said tax rebate of 5% is given to those who pay their taxes between April 1 and May 31. It is 3% if paid in June and 2% if paid in July.

    “There was lockdown in April last year due to the outbreak of Covid-19 and that had badly hit the revenue collection of the civic body. We could collet only Rs 4.30 crore till the first week of May last year,” a senior official from property tax department of the NMC said.

    “We have collected more revenue between April 1 and May 7 as compared to the corresponding period last year. This is because of the tax rebate introduced for prompt tax payers. Our objective is to collect maximum property tax during the first four months of the financial year,” he added.

    Moreover, the NMC still could not distribute hard copies of the property tax bills as civic workers are involved in various Covid-related activities. On the contrary, the NMC has made property tax bills available on its portal.

    The civic administration has already informed the property tax payers through public notice to get their property tax bills paid online by using their property index number. In 2020-21, the revenue of the civic body through property tax declined by 20% to Rs 112 crore as against Rs 140 crore in the year 2019-20.

    Panel submits report on smart city projects

    Tushar Pawar | TNN | Apr 6, 2021, 04:50 IST







    Nashik: A panel appointed by divisional commissioner Radhakrishna Game, who is the head of the high court appointed committee on Godavari pollution, recently conducted the survey of the smart city projects and submitted its report to the commissioner.

    The panel has environment experts Prajakta Baste, environmentalist Rajesh Pandit, Nishikant Pagare and representative from National Environment Engineering Research Institute (NEERI). It has suggested that the work of mechanical gate below Holkar bridge in the river Godavari be stopped.

    Moreover, they have also recommended closure of the bore-well in Ramkund after the desilting of the Godavari river. The report is soon to be discussed during the meeting of divisional commissioner-led committee on Godavari pollution.

    Pandit said that they had conducted survey about the smart city projects being planned in Godavari river. The survey report recommends that the mechanical gate below Holkar bridge should not be constructed as the riverbed is to be desilted.

    Moreover, smart city officials also could not give satisfactory replies about the various questions asked by the committee.

    “The committee in the reports has said that the retaining wall should not be built using cement. It should be gabion wall,” said Pandit.

    Prakash Thavil, CEO of Nashik Municipal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (NMSCDCL) said they had taken these the opinion of environment experts and NEERI members while finalising the Detailed Project Report of the projects.

    “We had also taken the approval of the Centre before publishing the DPR of the smart city projects,” said Thavil.

    NMC stares at shortfall in property tax collection

    Tushar Pawar | TNN | Mar 23, 2021, 04:02 IST








    Nashik: Property tax collection in the current fiscal may fall short by Rs 30 crore compared to the last fiscal as the work of city’s civic body has been severely affected due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The Nasik Municipal Corporation (NMC) could collect only Rs 8 crore between February 16 and March 21 due to rise in Covid-19 cases in the city from the second week of February.

    The staff of property tax department have been engaged in activities related to Covid-19 like tracing and conducting surveys.

    The property tax revenue of the NMC has declined by 23% to Rs 107 crore (as on March 21) in the current financial year, against Rs 140 crore in the last year.

    “The property tax collection has been badly affected due to Covid-19 pandemic. There is still a shortfall of Rs 33 crore in the collection this year as compared to the last fiscal,” said Pradeep Chaudhari, deputy commissioner (tax) of NMC.

    “We have also issued warrants to 139 defaulters, who own large properties, having dues amounting to Rs 20 crore. We have warned them of confiscation of their properties if they don’t clear the dues within the stipulated time,” said Chaudhari. “We are expecting to add Rs 3 crore more by the end of this fiscal,” Chaudhari added.

    In a bid to clear dues, NMC had introduced an amnesty scheme in three phases between November and February. During these phases, NMC collected Rs 33.42 crore from 55,209 defaulters. Of which, it collected Rs 23.34 crore dues during the first phase by January 15 and Rs 7.41 crore dues in the second phase by February 15.

    Last year too, NMC had brought an amnesty scheme and collected Rs 45 crore dues from the property tax defaulters.

    NMC starts demarcating boundaries of Godavari river

    Tushar Pawar | TNN | Mar 17, 2021, 04:45 IST





    Nashik: The civic administraton has started demarcation of the boundaries of Godavari river and its three tributaries –Nasardi, Waghadi and Waldevi rivers — in Nashik city.

    The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has already roped in an agency which has started a survey for demarcating the boundaries of Godavari river and its three tributaries.

    Shivkumar Vanjari, executive engineer (environment) of NMC, said, “Our objective is to make the rivers free from encroachment. Hence, there is a need to demarcate the boundaries of the river and its tributaries to remove the existing encroachments and curb the menace of such encroachments along the river in future.”

    “We have already completed surveying five of the total 19km -long stretch of Godavari river. We are expecting to complete the survey by December end,” said Vanjari.

    “The NMC will demarcate the boundaries and also chalk out red and blue lines of the Godavari and its three tributaries. We also have plans to demarcate all the 67 nullahs across the city to remove encroachments,” he added.

    Rajesh Pandit, an environmentalist and the petitioner in the Godavari river pollution case in the Bombay high court, welcomed the move of the civic administration.

    “Godavari is the lifeline of Nashik city and it should not only be made free of encroachments but pollution too. There is also a need to stop the release of effluents in to the river.The NMC should work on a war-footing on such issues,” said Pandit.

    Nashik cops nab 2 in land grab case

    Abhilash Botekar | TNN | Mar 12, 2021, 04:23 IST





    Nashik: The Nashik rural police have arrested two people in an alleged land grab case for using fraudulent means to show the transfer of land in the name of the accused without the owner’s consent.

    “It relates to fraudulent show of change in title of the property without the consent of the property holder by using photocopies of stamp papers that were already used by a third person in another case,” said Sachin Patil, superintendent of police, Nashik.

    Police have arrested Prakash Gangode, the sub-registrar officer-2 of stamps and registration department in Deola and Bapu Wagh, who is accused of generating records to show the land was transferred to him. The third accused, a stamp vendor, is missing.

    The matter came to light in December 2020, when Bhaskar Nikam wanted his name to be added to the Record of Rights of the land in Meshi village after his father’s death. He was told the land was sold to Wagh. Police said the accused took a photocopy of the latest stamp paper used by a third person, altered the content in favour of the accused and inserted the same in the RoR of the victim. The certified copy drawn showed the land had been transferred.

    Shravan Hardikar, inspector general of registrations, Pune, said no fake stamp was used nor a registration was carried out and there was no loss to the exchequer. “Our officials signed true copies showing property in the name of another person instead of the original owner – based on insertions in the document without verifying the originals. This is their fault,” he said.

    Highway officials told to fix Malegaon stretch

    Santosh Sonawane | TNN | Mar 9, 2021, 04:21 IST


    Nashik: In view of the frequent accidents on the stretch of the Mumbai-Agra highway that passes through Malegaon, the Nashik rural police and senior political leaders have suggested a slew of corrective measures to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI).

    Recently, the Malegaon police, MLA Mufti Mohammad Ismail Qasmi and NHAI officials conducted a joint survey of the stretch.

    The police said accidents are common on this 10km stretch — from Tehare Phata to Chalisgaon Phata — which comes under the jurisdictions of the Chhavani, Killa, Pawar Wadi and Malegaon taluka police stations. There have been 495 deaths here between 2015 and 2020. In these five years, the police have registered 428 accident cases and 1,265 people have escaped with grievous and minor injuries.

    Over the years, various political parties have staged agitations, rasta rokos and given memorandums. The police have suggested service roads on either side of the highway near the Tehare Phata as well as a subway and a flyover. “The section from Tehare junction to Chalisgaon Phata has a dense population on both sides. We have suggested that a flyover should be planned here,” said additional SP Chandrakant Khandvi.

In a bid to save time, the state government has digitised the RoR and brought the process of registration of mutations online, which is called e-mutation.

    “During follow-up with the district administrations, the issues faced by people were noted and the officials concerned were asked to address them at the earliest and ensure minimal or zero pendency in online mutation entries against the property where transaction has been carried out,” deputy commissioner Gorakshnath Gadilkar, said.

    Nandurbar district topped the chart in the state, followed by Ahmednagar, Jalgaon, Dhule and Nashik districts.

    “We conducted meetings regularly and analysed the progress report, which further helped us get rid of anomalies and improve the performance,” Nandurbar district collector Rajendra Bharud said.

    Additional collector Mahesh Patil and deputy collector Baban Kakde took the help of National Informatics Centre, Pune, to resolve the issues.

    It may be noted that the average performance of completing mutation entries stood at 97.7% across Nashik division. Nandurbar district has achieved registration and certification to the extent of 97.97%, Ahmednagar 97.81%, Jalgaon 97.79%, Dhule 97.76% and Nashik 97.59%.
