Municipalities should think of parking space as number of automobiles increasing in many folds. When designing Metro region this PARKING aspect must be taken into account.

Nagpur civic chief lambasts contractor, officials

Quote:
Nagpur Municipal Corporation has finally cracked whip against the contractors and officials responsible for the pathetic condition of roads in the city. Disappointed with NMC officials and the contractors, who have failed to provide basic services like - good and pothole free roads, well-maintained streets - municipal commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal directed them to initiate immediate steps to fill the potholes on roads managed by the NMC on priority within a week's time.

He also instructed other agencies like Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT), Public Works Department (PWD) and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to at least take steps to fill the potholes and make roads under their jurisdiction potholes free temporarily. He also instructed the civic body to ensure that citizens were provided all the basic services.

Taking cognizance from TOI report that highlighted in the last five years, despite the fact that rains have exposed the shoddy quality of tarring work done on roads across the city, not one contractor has been blacklisted, and not one NMC engineer or supervisor held responsible, Jaiswal announced that henceforth if contactor or any NMC engineer found responsible for pathetic condition of roads in city, offences will be registered against them. The contractors will be blacklisted while the official responsible will be suspended with immediate effect, he said. Henceforth there will be no formality of issuing show-cause notices and warning letters to contractors and officials. "I have given strict warnings to NMC officials to take tough stand and act accordingly. We are also planning to recover the amount spent on particular road construction work from the blacklisted contractors or else we will not pass any bills of the guilty contractors pending with NMC", Jaiswal said.

Jaiswal said, "I have directed all NMC executive engineers, deputy engineers and junior engineers to identify the bad roads under NMC jurisdiction whether they are main roads or internal roads and make them in perfect condition within next 10 days. The executive engineer (projects) has been directed to keep daily reports about the work done and its progress by NMC and other agencies too. Due to monsoon we cannot repair potholes and patches on tar roads, however, that does not stop us from adopting measures to provide temporary relief to the citizens," Jaiswal said. "I have also directed the concerned officials to resolve others issues like maintenance and cleanliness of roads, streetlights etc," he added. Jaiswal also directed the officials to prepare a list of jobs - like repairing of roads, street lights, garbage clearance, etc - undertaken and completed during the next seven days.

'50 per cent traffic signals in city are defunct'

Quote:
Traffic signals at almost 66 junctions have become defunct in the last few months, resulting in traffic jams and creating potentially a dangerous situation at these busy squares despite the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) entrusted a private contractor Decofurn Construction for maintenance of traffic signals. For this NMC payed almost Rs 24 lakh for installation of Light Emitting Diode (LED) signals at Rs 2.5 crore.

As per the inspection conducted jointly by officials of city traffic police and NMC traffic department on the directions of standing panel head Sandeep Joshi recently, it was revealed that out of 132 traffic signals junctions, only 66 were functioning properly with the rest being out of order in the absence of maintenance or due to improper installation work.

Of these, 55 have already been replaced by new technology LED signals. However, from these at five junctions including Jai Hind square, Gorewada square, Vashnodevi square, Telephone exchange square and Vanita Vikas square on Katol road LED signals have become defunct within few days of installation, just because of lackadaisical attitude of contractor Decofurn Construction, owned by S P Kayarkar, the report says.

A classic case is of the LED signals installed inside the Children's Traffic Park at Dharampeth. The newly installed LED signals at two junctions (Superman T Point and Harry Potter T point) inside Traffic Park have become defunct within few days after its installation, a senior NMC official informed

The team conducted inspection of traffic signals of all the six traffic zones - south (40 junctions), west (33 junctions), east (18 junctions), north (20 junctions), MIDC (9 junctions) and Indora (12 junctions). The inspection report will be tabled before NMC standing panel for its further action in a meeting scheduled tomorrow, the official informed.

Meanwhile, NMC's traffic engineer Nasir Khan informed that NMC has sanctioned new traffic signals at 61 locations in the city. The equipment will be installed at a cost of about Rs 2.5 crore. At present, the city has traffic signals at 132 junctions. Of these, 55 have already been replaced by LED ones. "Seventy-five signals are more than 20 years old and need to be either replaced or upgraded. The civic body plans to upgrade 77 signals by the year-end," Khan said

Sandeep Joshi, NMC's standing panel head, admitted that many signals were not functioning. But he insisted NMC was serious about improving traffic in city and said Rs 7 crore had been earmarked for it in NMC budget for the first time. The money would be spent for installing of new signals, repair of existing ones and replacement of old ones, he said. He also claimed that all the signals across the city would start functioning within next few months.

* 132 traffic signals
* 66 have become defunct
* 5 newly installed LED signals out of order
* 24 from old 77 signals defunct
*Lamp head of 27 signals out of order

Nagpurians to get ZLS refund

Quote:
Even though zero load shedding (ZLS) is history for Nagpurians, they have to settle accounts with power supplier MSEDCL. The audit report released by the company shows that ZLS surcharge paid by consumers in July-September 2010 period was 6.41 paise per unit excess. Similarly in the October-December 2010 period it was 50.91 paise per unit more.

MSEDCL collected Rs 17.55 crore excess from Nagpur consumers as ZLS surcharge. It has to be refunded by the company as per orders of Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC).

Nagpurians paid 51 paise per unit ZLS surcharge from December 2009 until the audit report for December 2009 to March 2010 period was out. It showed that during this period consumers had been charged 12.36 paise per unit less. Consumers paid at 63.36 paise per unit until audit of April-June period was done. MSEDCL was asked to pay a refund of 11.75 paise per unit. The surcharge reduced to 51.61 per unit. MSEDCL levied surcharge at this rate until June this year, when ZLS was scrapped.

MSEDCL should have levied surcharge at the rate of 0.70 paise per unit in July-September period and 45.20 paise per unit between October and December 2010. The audit of January-March 2011 and April-June 2011 quarter is yet to be done. MSEDCL sources say that consumers have been overcharged in these six months and will get a refund in the coming months.

Construction of Octroi building starts in 1992 still not completed

Quote:
Despite the fact that Octroi department gives maximum revenue to the civic body, the negligent attitude of the Nagpur Municipal Corporation still persists.

The truth of their attitude can be gauged from the fact that the construction of the ground plus one-storey 'Jakat Bhavan' building, which was started around twenty years ago, is yet to be completed.

It so happened that in late 1980s, with a view to provide better infrastructure to the Octroi department, the NMC floated a tender to construct Jakat Bhavan at Octroi Naka number 13 near Shanichari bazaar. "The construction began in 1992, but its progress was stopped without any valid reason", said a senior official of the department, requesting anonymity.

However, taking serious cognisance of this, the mayor Archana Dehankar on Thursday convened a meeting for the Octroi committee. Its chairman Narendra aka Balya Borkar, NMC ruling party leader Praveen Datke, committee members Rajesh Mate, Sheshrao Gotmare, Bharat Bhushan Gaidhane, Octroi superintendent Milind Meshram and other officials attended the meet.

Moreover, the building, which is not constructed completely, has several faults. Ironically, the NMC's estate department- which is entrusted to monitor any construction activities of the civic body- has miserably failed to impart its duty effectively.

An official pointed out that the fault begins at the basement of the building, as it was constructed below the level of a nullah which flows from closeby of the structure. "Whenever the nullah water rises, the dirty water enters the basement of the building. In fact, it is very hard to stand near the filthy atmosphere," commented a miffed official. To complete the building the NMC require an amount Rs 10 lakh and a proposal in this regard is pending with the Gandhibagh zonal office.

The Mayor asked the heads of the estate and project departments to take the necessary steps to complete the construction as early as possible.

The issue of the lack of manpower in the department was also discussed in the meeting. It was brought to notice that of the sanctioned 498 posts, the department has strength of 275.

Officials of the department demanded back, 32 of their personnel who had been transferred to other departments. According to them, if they get the personnel back, the issue of manpower will be solved to some extent.

Moreover, if manpower crisis is solved, the revenue of the department will automatically increase manifold, claimed the officials. They pointed out that due to manpower crisis, the department even could not depute round the clock staff at many octroi posts. A case in point is Dighori naka, which operates in only one shift.

Despite all odds, this fiscal year till September 7, the department has collected Octroi tax to the tune of Rs 176 crore. Meanwhile, the department also prepared a proposal of Rs 64 lakh to repair damage roads near octroi posts.

NMC to flow Rs 25 cr into river

Quote:
The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has come up with a plan to treat the sewage water flowing in Nag and its tributary - Pili river - but failed to prepare a proper plan which may lead to wastage of Rs 22.12 crore.

Around 400 million litres per day (MLD) sewage is generated in the city. Of it NMC treats 80 MLD at its Bhandewadi sewage treatment plant (STP) and rest 320 MLD flows untreated further. The civic body spends lakhs of rupees for treating the 80 MLD sewage water. Unfortunately, NMC releases the treated water again in Nag river itself. Thus, the treated water mixes with untreated after Bhandewadi. Later a number of nullahs join the river followed by Pili river that enters with huge quantity of sewage water generated from East and North Nagpur. Hence, NMC is wasting lakhs by flowing treated water into the highly polluted river itself.

As if this is not enough, NMC has come up with a fresh plan to add to the loss. Founder of Green Vigil Kaustav Chatterjee said, "The NMC has floated tenders for construction of four small STPs - 5 MLD plant at Shankar Nagar at the cost of Rs 7.01 crore, 3 MLD plant at Mokhshadham for Rs 4.21 crore, 5 MLD plant at Reshimbagh for Rs 7 crore and 5 MLD plant at Mankapur Ghat for Rs 7.10 crore - for a total of 18 MLD at a total cost of Rs 25.22 crore."

"The treatment of sewage at these points will be useless if there is no treatment facility in further stages. Even after establishment of these STPs, 302 MLD will be left untreated. Thus, NMC will let such a huge amount go waste," he said.
