Aurangabad FSL to get high-tech DNA analysers

dippy vankani mumbai, march 3

■ To generate one-in-a-trillion uniqueness for murder, rape cases

How will it help?

It will reduce the backlog of cases within a few months of operation and will help investigators identify the culprits using reports given by the machine in a maximum of 4–5 days.

What is a DNA Genetic Analyser?

It is a sophisticated machine that yields 99.9999 per cent accurate results in serious cases like rapes and murders, by matching the one-in-a-trillion uniqueness of the person whose DNA is being matched.

Forensic Scientific Laboratories (FSL) in Aurangabad, Nashik, Pune and Amravati will soon acquire high-end DNA genetic analysers that help solve serious cases such as murders and rapes. The machines, which cost over ` 70 lakh each, offer a foolproof way of determining the uniqueness of human DNA, which is one in a trillion. So far, DNA samples of persons involved in serious offences like murders and rapes were sent to either Mumbai or to Nagpur, because that is where the DNA sequencers are. This has led to a heavy backlog of cases. In 2012 alone, 1448 cases pertaining to DNA testing were pending with the state FSL. "We are acquiring the high-end analyser machine first in Pune, and will get them for our Nashik, Aurangabad and Amravati laboratories. We will be able to clear the back logs of cases once we get these machines.

The machines will be so advanced that no one can challenge the results provided by them," said FSL director M K Malve. According to Malve, if there are 4–5 suspects in a murder case with similar attributes, the machine will bring out the exact uniqueness — one in a trillion — that can prove exactly whose DNA matches are found from the victim's body or at the crime scene. "Earlier, we used conventional blood grouping methods to match the DNA, but now we will be able to analyse as many as 24 samples at one time in these machines," he said.

AMC registers fiscal deficit of 45% in 2012-13

By Niraj Chinchkhede, TNN | Mar 11, 2013

AURANGABAD: Amidst poor tax recovery and a fiscal deficit of 45% in the current financial year, allocations for new development works and continuing last year's projects in the 2013-14 budget will be a challenge for the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC).

According to the sources, the budget which will be announced in the next 10 days, will have a limit of Rs 500 crore. But a year-on-year growth in expenditure is not likely to happen. "Anything above this mark would be non-realistic and may result in huge fiscal deficit," said the sources.

The municipal body had proposed a budget of Rs 786.14 for 2012-13 fiscal and generated a revenue of Rs 673.55 crore, capital income of Rs 99.65 crore and deposits and other income of Rs 12.94 crore.

The municipal body was expecting to generate Rs 230 crore through local body tax (LBT) in 2012-13. However, it will only be able to collect LBT in the range between Rs 170 crore to Rs 180 crore. Similarly, against the civic body's target of Rs 100 crore property tax collection in the current fiscal, the officials could reach Rs 45 crore till March end.

Water bill recovery, will amount to about Rs 20 crore, while the target was Rs 40 crore. The civic body was expecting Rs 65 crore collection from town planning in the form of fee and other charges. But the municipal body will not cross Rs 35 crore mark. Also, the AMC did not receive a special grant of Rs 100 crore from the state government, which was shown in its budget.

The differences in target figures and actual recovery amounts to a deficit of more than Rs 300 crore.

Czech cos set to invest 400 mn euros in Aurangabad, Pune
Quote:
Aurangabad and Pune in Maharashtra is set to get investments of around 400 million Euros over the next two years from several corporate houses in the Czech Republic, with a major focus on the automobile, energy, power and defence sectors.

India, which ranks amongst the top 12 priority countries for the Czech nation, is set to get $2 billion worth of investments over the next two years, from companies such as Bonatrans Group, Vítkovice Machinery Group, Skoda Auto, radar systems maker Eldis, data and telecommunication racks manufacturers Conteg and Linet, among several other corporates.

Czech companies like Skoda are already present in India and more companies from that country are interested in investing in India, said Jana Peterkova, Economical and Political Affairs Embassy of the Czech Republic.

The proposal was made at a meeting of members of the Engineering Exports Promotion Council with Peterkova and other officials of the Embassy.

Stating that Czech Republic was one of the ‘sweet spots of Europe’, she added that the country was also offering incentives to corporations working in the area of research and development and strategic services, such as software development. The discounted tax rate has been extended from the current five to ten years, she added, in a media statement.

Several Indian majors such as Infosys, Arcelor Mittal, Alok Industries, Spentex Industries, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, Ashok Leyland, and Motherson Sumi Systems have already invested in the Czech Republic.

With the Czech Republic focusing on promoting collaboration with India in terms of power generation, metallurgy, engineering, chemicals, investments in health equipment as well as in environment protection would be on the rise, Peterkova added.

Amidst recession and sever drought, Aurangabad shining ?

Unnati Group sells record Renaults

Lokmat News network Aurangabad, March 21

Unnati Vehicles Pvt Ltd, an authorised dealer of the Renault in Aurangabad, has made a record of sorts by selling 1,111 Renault vehicles within a year. Addressing a press conference here on completing one year in Aurangabad on Thursday, Aamer Qhatib, divisional manager of Unnati Vehicles Ltd, said Unnati has set a target of selling 3,000 vehicles in 2013.

He said Unnati has four centres in Nagpur, Aurangabad, Nanded and Nashik and very soon it would have its service centres in Jalgaon, Ahmednagar and Latur. Aurangabad Service Centre was adjudged second in the country after Rajasthan for providing good service.

Qhatib said Unnati has set a record of sorts by selling 1,111 vehicles within a year of its existence in Aurangabad. Although world renowned Renault, a French multinational vehicle manufacturer, was established in 1899, it made forays into Indian markets 19 months ago and has won the goodwill of customers with its 102 centres across the country.

Civic chief presents Rs.596.14-cr budget

Lokmat News Network Aurangabad, March 19

Municipal commissioner Harshadeep Kamble today submitted an estimated budget of Rs 596.14 crore for the year 2013-14 before the standing committee for its approval.

In 2012-13, the then civic chief P N Bhapkar had submitted an estimated budget of Rs 620 crore, which was first inflated to Rs 786.38 crore by the general body and then finalised at Rs 494.74 crore.

INCOME SIDE

The civic chief is hopeful of boosting the income side by improving tax recovery. The estimated earnings include Rs 200 (LBT), Rs 80 cr (property tax), Rs 45 cr (town planning), Rs 5.15 cr (estate section), Rs 30 cr (BoT and other resources), Rs 25 cr (water tax), Rs 15 cr (deposits including EMDs) etc.

The civic body is also positive on getting an aid from the State Government (Rs 41.33 cr), refund of electricity duty (Rs 29.85 cr), loans through various resources, including IDBI (Rs 99.65 cr), miscellaneous grants (Rs 14.70 cr) and bank interest (Rs 5 cr).

EXPENDITURE SIDE

The expenses include salaries, allowances and administrative expenses (Rs 150.84 cr), water payment reserve account (Rs 94.50 cr); annual operational support grant (Rs 63 cr), repayment of old and new loans (Rs 60.50 cr); energy bills (Rs 17 cr), granting refund money (Rs 15 cr), land acquisition (Rs 15 cr), depreciation, pension, salary and municipal fund (Rs 15 cr), sanitation (Rs 12 cr), payment to GTL for shifting of poles and DPs (Rs 10 cr) and discretionary fund (Rs 6 cr).

The AMC will also be spending Rs 103 cr on spillover works (carried forward after sorting out on priority basis), Rs 19.90 cr on repair and maintenance works/new works in all wards and Rs 1 cr each have been set aside as emergency fund for the mayor, municipal commissioner and others.
Surprisingly, not a single new development work has been proposed in 2013-14 budget. However, the civic chief has tried his best to maintain cheers on the faces of ruling party members by including spillover works. The essential and statutory expenses have been put at Rs 500 cr.

After the civic chief presented the budget, veteran member Girjaram Halnor sought time for standing committee members to go through it. Accordingly, chairman Vikas Jain summed up the meeting by saying that a special meeting would soon be called to discuss the budget.

Dhule-Solapur highway be re-routed: Collector

• Proposed ring road be developed as bypass: Kumar

Lokmat News Network Aurangabad, Aug 9

Collector Vikram Kumar said that it would be more appropriate if the bypass of the proposed Dhule-Solapur national highway be detoured from current route as this route is likely to witness residential localities in the coming times. He has also suggested for developing the proposed bypass in the draft of regional development plan as ring road.

The National Highway Authority is soon going to undertake the road widening work of national highway no. 211. This highway goes around the city and thus it is proposed as bypass. This proposed bypass would be passing from near the mountains in Satara area. However, given the pace of development in the areas like Satara and Deolai and proposed DMIC project, the committee headed by divisional commissioner has suggested to NHA one month ago to re-route this road further away from current draft.

On the backdrop of it, collector Vikram Kumar also gave his suggestion.
He said, "The city is developing by leaps and bounds. The Beed Bypass which was away from the city some years ago now has been surrounded with localities and therefore it has become headache for people. Same thing will be repeated in this case too as this highway also passes close to the city. Hence, it is quite imperative to re-route this proposed highway further away. A ring road has been proposed in regional development plan and this route be developed as bypass by NHA," suggested Kumar.

According to NHA officers, this bypass will pass via Nipani, Aadgaon, Gandheli, Kanchanwadi, AS Club and then Bhangsimata Gadh. Now it has been suggested that this bypass be developed via Bidkin and Chittegaon.

Government Medical College and Hospital selected for 150-crore facility upgrade programme

Ranjana Diggikar, TNN | Sep 25, 2013

AURANGABAD: The Union government has selected city-based Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) to avail benefits under its Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY). Accordingly, the government has asked the GMCH to submit a proposal to sanction Rs 150 crore to upgrade it for rendering better and affordable healthcare facilities to the patients.

PL Gattani, medical superintendent of GMCH, said, "The hospital administration received a letter from the government seeking proposal under PMSSY for upgrading the institute. Accordingly, a proposal would be sent for carrying out works such as extension of surgical building, renovation of record room, mortuary and many old buildings. A proposal to purchase essential equipment, set up separate operation theatre complex, central laboratory, extension of gynaecology and paediatric wards and increasing bed capacity would also be sent under the scheme."

"The PMSSY aims at correcting the imbalances in the availability of affordable healthcare facilities in different parts of the country and augmenting facilities for quality medical education in the under-served states in particular. The scheme was approved in March 2006," Gattani said.

The first phase of the PMSSY had two components - setting up six institutions on the lines of AIIMS and upgrading 13 existing government medical colleges. In the second phase, the government has approved setting up two more AIIMS-like institutions and upgrading of some of the medical colleges.

"In the third phase, selected medical institutions spread over 10 states will be upgraded. The project cost for upgrading each medical college institution has been estimated at Rs 150 crore, of which the central government will contribute Rs 120 crore, while the remaining expenses will be borne by the respective state governments," Gattani said.

"The GMCH, which was established in 1956, has been providing medical services to the people of Marathwada region since the last 50 years. Its popularity increased after a specialized cancer hospital was set up," he said.

"Besides medical services, the GMCH has been an excellent training centre for young doctors, nurses and students. The hospital, which had just 300 beds in 1960, is presently equipped with 1,050 beds. The special facilities available are ICCU, CT SCAN, ear nose and throat treatment, ophthalmology, preventive medicine, radiotherapy unit, lithotripsy unit, cancer surgery, plastic surgery, paediatric surgery, dialysis unit, blood components separation system, etc.," Gattani said.

"Apart from the region's 14 districts, the GMCH draws around 1,000 patients every day from Vidarbha, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Andhra Pradesh. With the implementation of PMSSY, better and affordable healthcare facilities will be easily accessible to one and all here," Gattani added.

Over 15,000 citizens from Aurangabad have travelled abroad in 2013.

In 2012 over 20,000 citizens went abroad. This year, the figure is low due to the fall of rupee.
Most people chose to go to Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Dubai because the budget is comparatively lesser than that of Europe.

The work on 4 Lane Paithan - Ahmadnagar Link Road Begins.

To be completed by April 2014.

After completion, the highway will save nearly 10 to 15 km distance and will also end frequent jams at Nagar Naka Chowk. The four-lane Highway project will connect two parallel roads, namely Paithan-Aurangabad and Aurangabad-Ahmednagar roads.

It was delayed for many years. The land acquisition was delayed as farmers did not want to part away with their lands. Now, they have relented and the work has gained momentum.

The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation has started the four-laning work of road and 70-metre long bridge work on Kham river, which will be completed by December. This road will be thrown open to traffic by April 2014.




Minister and officials inspects the work of link road on Sunday.

As winter sets in, BBQs come out.

Hurda parties are passé. For years now, hurda picnics have been a staple of Aurangabad winters. But young Aurangabad now has a new winter destination - 'barbeque'. To enjoy the winter chill with a warm bonhomie, more and more people are turning to outdoor barbeques, a trend made popular by the West. A mouth-watering option, barbeques also help promote bonding time.

The trend seems to be catching up with city hotels and resorts too. And so while you now have two new restaurants dedicated solely to BBQ grills - Flame & Grill at Prozone and Barbeque at Beed Bypass, others too are quick to cash in on the trend.
"We recently organized a 10-day outdoor barbeque festival keeping the weather in mind, and the response was great among the locals as well as the guests," informs Executive Chef Dinkar Sardesai of Welcomhotel Rama International.

‘ Marathwada Region can light up entire state’

TNN Jan 6, 2014, 06.38AM IST

AURANGABAD: The Marathwada region, which is said to be the third best place in the country for highest solar yield due to its favourable weather conditions, can provide power to the entire state, energy experts have said.

Gundu Sabde, an expert with around 20 years of experience in the field of solar energy, told TOI, "After Jodhpur in Rajasthan and Kutch in Gujarat, Marathwada region is the third best place with highest radiation intensity that yields solar energy. If utilized efficiently, the region has the potential to fulfill the energy needs of the entire state. Each year, the region witnesses more number of days with clear sunlight compared to other parts of the country."

Sabde, who has over 29 patents registered to his name in the field of solar energy, said, "Even if 20% of the region switches to solar energy, at least four power generating plants would not be needed and lakhs of tonnes of coal would be saved every year. It would also reduce tremendous amount of oil import from foreign countries and will save foreign exchange too, thus making the country's economy strong." He said only 0.5% of India's land is enough to generate electricity required for the entire country. In today's scenario, if the entire investment in solar panels is considered, one may get electricity at approximately Rs 4 per unit, which is far more economical than the conventional sources, he added.

Sham Dande, another expert, said, "The region has the capacity to generate 25% more solar energy than Mumbai. But due to lack of awareness and cost, people refrain from switching to solar energy." Most of the people do not know that by installing solar panels with the capacity to generate 1 MW of energy, over 2,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide could be prevented from being emitted into the environment every year."

Anil Suradkar, working in solar energy, said, "the state's total energy requirement for 2011-12 was 1,41,382 million units (MU) while the availability was just 1,17,722 MUs. The peak demand during the same period remained at 21,069 MW while the demand met was 16,417 MW. The deficit is increasing the burden on natural resources."
