Maharashtra: MLAs, MLCs to stay in swanky 1,000 sqft flats in South Mumbai by 2021

As long as they are in power, and once the Manora MLA hostel is redeveloped, MLAs and MLCs will get to stay in posh 1,000 square feet flats in the redeveloped hostel buildings by 2021. After seeing the sorry state of the dilapidated Manora MLA hostel at Nariman Point, the state government has asked NBCC India Ltd to construct two towers – 50 floors and 32 floors respectively on the site. The towers will be constructed above a five-storey podium and will be connected by a bridge. The towers will have all modern amenities and canteen facility. A total of 373 flats will be constructed in the redeveloped towers.Anoop Kumar Mittal, chairman and managing director of NBCC said that construction of the two towers will begin in December 2018. The project will be completed in two-and-a-half years. A senior official from NBCC said, “The flats will be divided in two parts – 600 sq ft for the MLA’s private use and 400 sq ft to meet visitors. The flats will be connected in such a manner that they can be used as one when required.”The total cost of the project is Rs 500-crore, which will be borne by the government. However, till these twin towers come up, the MLAs and MLCs will have to continue staying at Chembur. The MLAs had to vacate the Manora hostel after it was declared ‘dangerous to live’.

Maharashtra government lists seven most dangerous bldgs in South Mumbai

A total of seven buildings (which includes six buildings from last year’s list) has been declared as the most dangerous cessed buildings by MHADA. Situated in South Mumbai, the buildings housed a total 403 residents, of which 117 are yet to vacate.On Saturday evening the state’s Housing Minister Prakash Mehta announced the list of the buildings, and Esplanade Mansion, next to the Mumbai Sessions Court at Kalaghoda continues to tops the list. When asked, why this building keeps reappearing in list, Meheta said, “The tenants of this building had approached the court and there’s a stay on eviction.” The building has a lot of advocate offices in it. Last year nearly 800 buildings have been repaired by the Mumbai Repair and Reconstruction Board of MHADA. Last year’s list featured nine buildings of which three were repaired, while remaining six continue to be in the list.However, most of the times, the buildings that collapse during monsoons are not always a part of the list. “As per state government directions, survey of the dilapidated buildings should not be restricted to pre-monsoon period only. It should be carried out through out the year so that we can recognise more dilapidated buildings,” read the statement issued by the MRRB.According to officials, they are trying to vacate the buildings in coming days. The authority has even issued emergency helpline numbers.

As monsoons approach, MHADA releases list of seven most dangerous buildings in Mumbai

Maharashtra Housing And Area Development Authority (MHADA) on Saturday released a list of seven most dangerous buildings in Mumbai.A total of seven buildings, comprising 403 residents, have been declared as most dangerous. Of the 403 residents, 117 residents haven’t vacated their homes.Six of the seven buildings are interestingly from last year’s list, which raises questions whether the concerned authorities are taking MHADA’s list seriously.“The following cessed buildings have been identified as the most dangerous during the pre-monsoon survey of 2017 carried out by the board,” MHADA said in a statement.In July 2017, at least 17 people were killed after the four-storey Siddhi-Sai Cooperative Housing Society in Ghatkopar collapsed after the pillars of the building got weakened due to the renovation of a nursing home located on its ground floor. One of the major factors for the collapse was Mumbai’s unprecedented rains, which had caused sufficient damage to the old and dilapidated buildings.A month later, 22 people were killed after a 117-year-old structure collapsed in South Mumbai.Also readGhatkopar building collapse: Maha CM announces compensation, promises structural audit of old structuresThe building was 117-years-old and 12 families were residing in it. It also had six godowns on the ground floor. What remained was a large mound of concrete rubble and steel rods encircled by other houses including what appeared to be a tall building.

DNA Rain Check: South Mumbai citizens wait to see if BMC’s new steps work

In south Mumbai, areas surrounding Dockyard Road (E-ward) get as inundated as any other low-lying locality but their woes do not make the headlines as much, overshadowed by those of the swankier localities further downtown or uptown. In these areas, encroachments and garbage discarded by slums and left uncleared by BMC are to blame for choked drains and the resultant flooding, residents say.But residents are willing to give BMC the benefit of the doubt; they will wait and see if the civic body is actually going to deliver the promised relief from floods. “They seem to have done some work, for which we should give them credit. But the quality of the work speaks for itself,” said Kamlakar Shenoy, an activist who lives in a lane off Shivdas Chapsi Marg, pointing to the debris removed from the earth to instal new drain pipes and resurface the road. The construction material is piled on one side of the road. “They have just cleared one side of the road. The other has been left up to its own devices,” said Shenoy. Close to the now-demolished Hancock Bridge, the road last year saw knee-deep water which is problematic for those who ride two-wheelers to navigate more easily in a snarl.“On Chapsi Marg, close to Kalvert Company, there is a natural low-lying area. Shoddy maintenance of drains only adds to the woes,” said Shenoy. While Chapsi Marg saw flooding till knee level, Jinabai Rathod Marg which leads to the arterial P D’Mello Road, had chest-deep water last year. Drains were laid afresh across the road last year. “We are trying some new remedial measures and we are hoping that there is no flooding on Jinnabai Rathod Marg and Chapsi Marg,” said S K Gaikwad, assistant municipal commissioner, E Ward, referring to the civic work of crosswise drain layout and pipes of larger diameter. “We are hoping our measures will work and citizens will get some relief. Water pumps won’t be needed in this area, though we are keeping one on standby. Cleaning of the drains will start soon and will end before the month ends,” he said.

Bandra, Santacruz rife with illegal extension made to commercial places

The western suburbs, especially Bandra, Juhu, and Santacruz, have the maximum number of illegal commercial constructions in the city, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said. Unlike South Mumbai, where, in areas like Masjid and Dongri, entire buildings are constructed illegally, the eastern suburbs have slum pockets that have been developed into local business centres, while the western suburbs have regularised the illegal structures, activists said.Activist Aftab Siddiqui said,”Architects, builders and junior engineers of building proposal departments connive to regularise the illegal commercial structures.” The real estate cost in Bandra and Santacruz goes up to Rs 45,000 per sq ft and by extension of a small area also the builders get to earn a lot. In return of this he affords to bribe the BMC officials in lakhs”, Siddiqui added.On the other hand, Deputy Municipal Commissioner (Removal of Encroachments), Nidhi Chaudhari, said, “There are a lot of hotels and restaurants in the western suburbs, but all are not illegal. But they make many alterations without applying for regularisation. Many hotels, restaurants, theatres, etc, are using additional space for commercial purpose, which should otherwise have been open spaces.””Largely, we feed all the complaints to our software and then site inspection is carried out. Later, a raw map is drawn siting the alterations and a notice is served to the violator. However, if the person goes moves a court, the matter stops there; if not, demolition is carried out,” Chaudhari said.The names of some of the commercial places with illegal extensions were mentioned in a complaint submitted to BMC head-quaters last month. They are as follows:Bar stock Exchange, Khar Janata Lunch Home Barbeque Nation at Metro Hotel Sheesha, Linking Road Coffee Culture, Hill Road Piranzi, SV Road JLWA, Linking Road Elbow Room

Congress accuses Nitin Gadkari of insulting Navy after ‘not an inch’ remark

Gadkari said at a public event in Mumbai: "Actually, Navy is needed at the borders from where terrorists sneak in. Why does everyone (in the Navy) want to stay in South Mumbai? They (Navy) had come to me, asking for a plot (of land). I will not give even an inch of land. Please don't come to me again." The minister for road transport and highways, shipping and water resources made the remark while voicing his disappointment at the Navy's objection to a floating jetty plan at Malabar Hill in south Mumbai, where a floating hotel and seaplane service are planned. ”

Six years after 26/11- Why we are not prepared to prevent another attack

As the nation remembers the sixth anniversary of 26/11, dna takes stock of what has changed since then and whether India is any safer. Former Union home secretary G K Pillai and counter-terrorism specialist Ajai Sahni explain what ails India’s security system.After the 26/11 attacks, the government brought the Kargil committee report out from the dust and in a flurry of steps launched the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), National Intelligence Grid (Natgrid), Criminal and Crime Tracking Network System (CCTNS), coastal security project, NSG hubs, and police reforms. Clearly, all these are not enough.Where do we stand now?Overall security is, more or less, in tatters or half-done. “Some progress has been achieved, but the fact is India is incapable of preventing another 26/11,” concede Pillai and Sahni. “I would say we are just 40% better prepared with respect to 2008. The main lacunae are heavy police shortage and poorly trained men and thus a weak policing system, the first responder to both prevent and respond,” says Pillai.What are the problems?There are only 130 policemen per lakh compared to 300-600 per lakh ratio in developed countries. Even among those, sizeable numbers are diverted for VIP duties. What is the rationale of giving Z-plus security to Baba Ramdev when you do not have enough feet on ground? Pillai says. He rues that states have done very little in imparting training to policemen as 60% of Rs 2,200 crore sanctioned by 13th Finance Commission for training lapsed by 2014.Is adequate training given to police?”Ask any top officers in Mumbai, including the commissioner, if they would like to go to the training school? The answer will be a flat no. Training school is considered punishment posting, a dog house. In Israel, it’s the other way. The police train hard and that is why they prevent attacks,” says Pillai. Sahni says while India’s intelligence apparatus has done well to neutralise and bust several modules post 2008 and the quantum of threat has declined significantly, the preparedness to prevent such an attack is highly suspect.How good is Mumbai’s Force One?”Mumbai definitely has an excellent Force One, but it would require two hours to reach if South Mumbai is attacked again. It’s our good luck that our capabilities have not been tested on the scale of 26/11 because Pakistan is nose deep in domestic troubles and is wary of international pressure,” adds Sahni. Coastal security, though, has seen some improvement in terms of Quick Reaction Teams, fast motorboats and marine police stations, but still has huge yawning gaps, says Pillai.Is there a proper coastal census?There is still no system to check about 20 lakh boats crisscrossing the sea without identification. Like each fisherman, all boats are supposed to have Aadhaar numbers so that they could be tracked and fitted with transponders for identification. But it has been implemented only on boats which are 15 metres and above. Tracking 20 lakh boats, without technology, along the 7000-km long coastline is an impossible task and hence a huge security risk.

In a major security lapse, man without entry pass shared dais with Narendra Modi at Devendra Fadnavis’s swearing-in

In a major security lapse, a man claiming to be a BJP activist managed to gain entry into the swearing-in ceremony of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis here without possessing a valid pass and even reached the dais where Prime Minister Narendra Modi was sitting.The grand swearing-in ceremony was organised inside Wankhede Stadium in South Mumbai on October 31. The man, identified as Anil Mishra, was spotted on the dais where Modi and other dignitaries were sitting, and police are now investigating how he managed to get there. “It was brought to our notice that one Anil Mishra, said to be a BJP activist, breached the tight security and reached the dais where PM Narendra Modi ji was sitting along with other dignitaries, without any valid pass,” a senior police officer said this evening.Besides Modi, several top leaders, including BJP president Amit Shah, party patriarch L K Advani, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, several Union Ministers, Chief Ministers of BJP-ruled states and those governed by its alliance partners were present at the high-profile event. Fadnavis (44) was administered the oath of office and secrecy at the ceremony by Governor C Vidyasagar Rao.Also sworn-in were seven Cabinet Ministers and two Ministers of State at the sprawling stadium which witnessed a crowd of over 25,000. The officer said they had been inquiring into the matter and if required an FIR will be registered.

Congress slams BJP over ‘gala’ preparations for swearing-in event

Congress on Wednesday accused the BJP of ‘compromising’ the dignity of the swearing-in ceremony and said the saffron party has turned the upcoming event, wherein new government under Devendra Fadnavis will take oath on October 31, into a festival. “The decorum and seriousness of the swearing-in has been lost,” Congress spokesman Anant Gadgil said.Questioning how a minority government can take oath without securing support for a simple majority, he said, “I can understand the excitement of BJP as they have won the largest number of seats. But still it has not reached the magic figure of 145 (in House of 288).”NCP and Shiv Sena have not given them letters of support and hence BJP has a minority government. How can a minority government take oath when it does not have numbers,” he said. Gadgil alleged that crores of rupees are being spent on the swearing-in function, to be held at Wankhede stadium in South Mumbai, and demanded to know the source of funding for the event. “BJP used to call Congress corrupt, now they should tell us from where the money is being raised for the event,” the Congress leader said.
