#RTIBachao: Municipal Corporations in Navi Mumbai, Thane and Mira Bhayandar agree to upload online RTI queries and replies Shrikrishna Kachave 23 April 2018 To bookmark you need to sign in  0 After the strenuous and persistent efforts taken by several leading Right to Information (RTI) activists, the #RTIBachao campaign has started yielding concrete results. The Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation is the latest municipal corporation to join Navi Mumbai Municipal Corp (NMMC) and Thane Municipal Corp (TMC) in agreeing to comply with the provisions of Section 4 of the RTI Act and upload online all queries asked by citizens and replies provided to them by public information officers (PIOs) under the Act.   Pune Municipal Corp (PMC) was the first to have initiated this move a couple of years ago, but it has not bothered to keep the information up-to-date. This only means that activists will need to keep a constant vigil to ensure that the intentions of the municipal bodies are turned into action and that uploading of information continues over time.   RTI activists led by Shailesh Gandhi, former Central Information Commissioner, have argued that the issue of people using RTI to blackmail municipal officials gets nullified when legitimate information is posted on the municipal websites – after all, it is public information and nobody can be blackmailed for doing the right thing. This happened when several municipal corporations, including Mumbai had begun to allege that RTI activists were using information obtained under the Act to blackmail officers and builders. What they failed to say was that blackmail was only possible when something illegal occurred and was sought to be hidden.   The #RTIBachao campaign was initiated at Moneylife Foundation on 7 February 2018 under leadership of Mr Gandhi along with scores of RTI activists and concerned citizens. Activists such as Vijay Kumbhar, Navin Agarwal, Sunil Ahya, Krishna Gupta and Mahesh Bangera took it forward by campaigning for disclosure of information.   “The focus of #RTIBachao campaign was to seek respect towards RTI users and activists in getting the RTI queries and responses displayed on the website under Section 4 of RTI Act,” Mr Gandhi had said. According to him, the whole idea for this campaign was to set an example in society of ’how the democracy works. He says, “Citizens elect the government in a democracy and the government ought to maintain transparency and remain accountable to its citizens.”   And as it is evident that the objective of working this experiment of democracy by contacting elected representatives and convincing them is actually working. Navi Mumbai Municipal Corp became the first to implement the requests made under the #RTIBachao campaign. NMMC chief Dr N Ramaswami agreed to implement the solution provided under the campaign and issued appropriate order (See link below):   https://epaper.timesgroup.com/Olive/ODN/MumbaiMirror/shared/ShowArticle.aspx?doc=MMIR%2F2018%2F03%2F31&entity=Ar01000&sk=32E5A8ED&mode=text   Thane Municipal Corporation soon followed the path and its Commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal also joined in strengthening of implementation of RTI Act.     Thane Police also joined the campaign. Thane’s Additional Commissioner of Police (ACP-administration wing) Makarand Ranade issued a circular asking PIOS to show courtesy while dealing with RTI users.      Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corp also accepted the demands of #RTIBachao campaign and has issued a circular to upload details of RTI applications and replies on its website.      The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) on the other end has taken few steps towards transparency, but still needs to make some improvisations. Noted civic and RTI activist Vijay Kumbhar from Pune says, “PMC uploads RTI first appeals on their website. However, there is no uploading of RTI applications and even the uploading of RTI appeals is not regularly done. It is just that, only after a proper follow-up is made, then they upload the appeals. There are some technical glitches also involved like, at certain times, a particular web page will open whereas at times, it won’t.” (See link below):   http://pmc.gov.in/en/public-disclosure#qt-public_disclouser-ui-tabs4   Mr Gandhi says, “We should aim to spread this to other municipal bodies in Maharashtra and this is the first step towards active citizenship in working of democracy. We will now monitor the implementation of these directives by vigilance, commitment and polite reminders and even request others to join or support us in this campaign.”   As the campaign is now gaining momentum, we expect that the civic bodies make suo-motu disclosure of information under Sec. 4 of RTI Act and also the citizens support this initiative to bring transparency and accountability in governance.  Like this story?

Moneylife Digital Team > Public Interest BCCI should come under RTI: Law Commission Vinita Deshmukh 19 April 2018 To bookmark you need to sign in  0 In what can be termed as a victory of democracy and transparency, plus a humiliating defeat for the arrogant, corrupt and opaque Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) and all the influential men, who are parasites on this country’s wealth and clout, the Law Commission Report has strongly recommended that the Cricket Board has all the reasons to come under the purview of the Right to Information Act (RTI) Act, as it is  “substantially funded” by the government over the last so many decades.   The Law Commission, which works as an advisory body to the Ministry of Law & Justice – in its report nails the BCCI, which has been dodging to come under the RTI. The Commission observes, “If the government is foregoing a significant amount of money (in the form of tax or other levy), which otherwise would have been deposited in the national or state exchequer, and would have been public money’, it would qualify as indirect “substantial funding” by the government. And, it would follow that the body/entity receiving such benefits would be a ‘public authority’, even though it may be a private, non-statutory or non-government body, thereby putting such a body squarely within the purview of the RTI Act.”   Chairman of this report, Justice Dr BS Chauhan has categorically recommended that since all other sports bodies under the National Sports Federation (NSF) are listed under the RTI Act,“it is inconceivable as to why BCCI should be an exception.”   What the Report studied   The scope of the study of this report as directed by the Supreme Court was: whether BCCI would qualify to be a `public authority’ so as to fall under the purview of the RTI Act; what would be the ambit of the terms `substantially financed; and `directly or indirectly’ financed/funded as mentioned in Section 2 (h) (d) (ii) of the RTI Act and; whether tax exemptions to the tune of thousands of crores and provision of land at highly discounted rates/nominal value, by the Central and state governments, for the construction of cricket stadiums amount to indirect `substantial funding’ by the government?   The report, quoting various court decisions, nationally and internationally, reiterates, “even if BCCI is continued to be regarded as a private body, but owing to its monopolistic character coupled with the public nature of its functions and the ‘substantial financing’ it has received from appropriate governments over the years (in the form of tax exemptions, land grants et al) it can, within the existing legal framework, still be termed as a ‘public authority’ and be brought within the purview of the RTI Act.”   The Report also states that, the BCCI by its own admission (in its Memorandum of Association) says it is committed to laying down policies of the game of cricket in India and selecting teams to represent India at international fora. Thus, it qualifies to come under the RTI Act.   Other Vital Reasons for BCCI to come under RTI Act:   The Report points out that, `there are certain other relevant factors that ought to be taken into consideration that qualify BCCI to come under the under the RTI Act. They are:   1. The uniform of the players of the Indian team (as selected by BCCI) contains the national colours and their helmets display the Ashok Chakra.   2. BCCI, though not a NSF, nominates cricketers for the Arjuna Awards etc.   3. The Parliament and the State Legislatures chose not to enact a legislation to govern the sport of cricket, reflecting tacit recognition on the issue afforded to BCCI.    4. Recently, the apex court reaffirmed that BCCI is the “approved” national level body holding virtually monopoly rights to organize cricketing events in the country.   5. ICC recognises BCCI as the ‘official’ body representing India.   6. BCCI practically enjoys a monopolistic status in controlling and regulating the game of cricket in India. BCCI controls the policy formulation related to cricket and its implementation, affecting the country at large, which is essentially a State function.   7. BCCI and its actions/activities, directly and indirectly, affect the fundamental rights of citizens, players, and other functionaries.   BCCI is `monopolistic’ but its work is that of `public functions’: …the monopolistic nature of the power exercised by BCCI, the de facto recognition afforded by the government, the impact of the Board’s actions/decisions on the fundamental rights of the players, umpires and the citizenry in general, entail that the nature and character of functions performed by BCCI are those of public functions.   Any NSF receiving a government grant of Rs10 lakh comes under RTI: In reply to an unstarred question, on 27 March 2012, the then Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, in the Lok Sabha, Ajay Maken, stated that the Government in April 2010, declared that all the National Sports Federations (NSFs) receiving a grant of Rs10 lakh or more would be treated as ‘public authority’ under section 2(h) of the RTI Act. Thus, RTI Act is applicable to all such NSFs being deemed ‘public authorities’.   Maken reiterated that, so far as BCCI is concerned, the government of India has been treating it as an NSF and has been approving its proposals for holding events in India and participating in international events abroad. Again on 27 July 2016 to the Lok Sabha, Vijay Goel, the then Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports reiterated the same opinion as that of Maken. The Report observed, “The answer of the Minister clearly shows that the government of India has been treating BCCI as a NSF, and therefore it should also be treated as a ‘public authority’ in terms of section 2(h) of the RTI Act.”   BCCI is “substantially financed” indirectly:  “It may be accurate to say that the Central government does not extend any direct financial assistance to BCCI, but it is also on record that it has been giving financial assistance in other forms and manner such as:   Granting concessions in income tax, customs duty etc. Providing land at excessively subsidised rates, among others. State governments have also provided land at subsidised rates, at many places to cricket associations (for example: The State of Himachal Pradesh allocated about fifty-thousand square metres land to Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association on a ninety-nine-year lease at Re. one per month) BCCI has enjoyed tax exemptions of thousands of crores of rupees. To be precise, between 1997- 2007, the total tax exemption amounted to INR 21,683,237,489/- (INR Twenty-one billion six hundred eighty-three million two hundred thirty-seven thousand four hundred eighty-nine) It may also be noted here that from 2007-2008 onwards, the registration of BCCI under section 12A of the Income Tax Act, 1961, as a Charitable Trust, was withdrawn. It is worth mentioning here that the government, Central as well as the States, allowing the use of their infrastructure by BCCI, regularly at the time of events or even otherwise also tantamount to ‘substantial financing’ It may be noted that the amount of revenue that can alternatively be generated by the government from making available such infrastructure to any third party, on payment basis, makes the level of this financing particularly ‘substantial’. The Central as well as the state governments allowing the BCCI to have a monopoly in the game of cricket, impliedly authorising BCCI to raise funds/generate resources from numerous other sources, funds and resources, which otherwise could have been directed to the national/ state exchequer, also amounts to ‘substantial financing’ As the Board controls the profession of cricketers, its actions are required to be judged and viewed by higher standards…keeping in view the public good as also the welfare of the sport of cricket. It is, therefore, wholly undesirable that a body in-charge of controlling the sport of cricket should involve in litigations completely losing sight of the objectives of the society.   Earlier in 2016, the Lodha Committee Report had made the following key recommendations:   The Legislature must “seriously consider” bringing BCCI under the purview of the RTI Act. There should be a steering committee headed by former home secretary G.K. Pillai with former national cricketers, Mohinder Amarnath, Diana Edulji and Anil Kumble as members. The term of an office bearer of BCCI shall not be of more than 3 years. An office bearer can have a maximum of three terms in all. No office bearer shall have consecutive terms. There shall be a cooling-off period at the end of each term. There should be a separate governing body for the IPL. Players and BCCI officials should disclose their assets to the Board as a measure to ensure they do not bet. In the interest of democratic representations of states, it proposed ‘One State – One Member – One Vote’. Also, no proxy voting of individuals should be permitted. No BCCI office-bearer should be a minister or a government servant.   Noted RTI activist Subhash Chandra Agrawal, who along with Anil Bairwal, National Convener of Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) had taken up the matter with the Central Information Commission and the Supreme Court stated, ``Law Commission subsequent to Supreme Court order has recommended Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) to be under Right-To-Information (RTI) Act. Since Supreme Court judges and Law Commission members are in themselves best qualified persons to decide on legal issues, there is no reason that Central government may further defer accepting Law Commission recommendation that too after the Supreme Court verdict in name of making study of the report.’’  Now, it is the turn of Ravi Shankar Prasad, Law Minister to working instantly to bring in BCCI under the RTI Act.   (Full Report of the Law Commission is here:)   (Vinita Deshmukh is consulting editor of Moneylife, an RTI activist and convener of the Pune Metro Jagruti Abhiyaan.

In Maharashtra, 3,533 infants died within first hour after their birth, reveals a reply received under Right to Information (RTI) Act.   As per reply received by RTI activist Chetan Kothari, in Mumbai alone, 424 infants have lost their lives within the first hour after the birth and 15,314 infants have died during first 12 months of their birth. Pneumonia and diarrhoea are also accountable for the death of 111 babies and 12 babies, respectively, the reply reveals.   “The figures have increased now and it is a serious problem. The Maharashtra Government is not taking it seriously and they should provide more facilities in the rural and remote places to the poverty stricken people,” says Mr Kothari.   According to the RTI activist, Maharashtra is witnessing rise in number of infants and child mortality. Malnutrition and not being able to receive food, which provides nutrition to the pregnant mother, are the two reasons behind rise in infant mortality, he says.    Earlier, the state Health Department had denied information to Mr Kothari about infant deaths in Maharashtra. Mr Kothari had to file an appeal before the State Information Commission (SIC) to get the information. In an order passed in January this year, Information Commissioner AK Jain, directed the Health Department to provide information before 30 January 2018.    Like this story?

2018-04-23Thane: MBMC rips off booze ads from wine shop boards - Free Press Journal
Thane: MBMC rips off booze ads from wine shop boards Apr 23, 2018 09:07 am Bhayandar: The Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) cracked the whip against the illegal display of liquor brands by wine shops and other watering-holes in the city. Following clear directives from higher-ups in the Thane (rural) police, the anti-encroachment wing led by Sanjay Donde, launched a drive on Saturday, to pull down the illegally installed signboards by liquor vends to promote various booze brands. The action, however has put a serious question mark on the credibility of excise officials, who had remained mute spectators towards such massive illegalities, all these years. A large number of booze vends mostly wines and beer shops have installed huge illuminated signage’s, promoting various brands of liquor and beer. “Such advertising gimmicks sans any proxy product, explains their audacity to lure gullible people especially youngsters to the watering holes and become addicts,” charged RTI activist- Shabbir Kanorwala while seeking penal action against those protecting the illegitimate money spinning activities. After much dilly-dallying and claiming ignorance about specific regulations, the excise wing had shot-off toothless notices to booze vendors asking them to remove boards displaying booze advertisements or face punitive action. However, it was only after the intervention of the cops, that the MBMC, spurred into action. “We have asked the MBMC to ensure that such illegal signboards are weeded out from the city,” confirmed Thane (rural) ASP Atul Kulkarni. There is an increasing trend among liquor manufacturers to sponsor sign boards offering attractive monthly rents to wine shops and bars as the advertising ploy is being seen as one of the best to target consumers at the point of purchase. As per statistics sourced out from the excise department, there are 238 establishments including-17 wine shops, 149 permit rooms, 55 beer shops and 17 country liquor vends in the twin-city.

2018-04-22Thane Cop accused of supplying ganja let off - DNA India - Daily News & Analysis
Thane Cop accused of supplying ganja let off Updated: Apr 22, 2018, 06:30 AM IST A Thane sessions court, while acquitting a cop accused of supplying cannabis in jail, held that the prosecution failed to correctly describe the seized sample. The court held it was essential to describe ifleaves seized had fruits or tops so as to fit into the definition of ganja as described under the Narcotic Control and Psychotropic Substance (NDPS) Act. The court held: “The prosecution said that except the word Ganja or by referring the seized sample as greenish leaves having strong smell, nothing else has been referred either in chargesheet or even in panchnama to prove the guilt of the accused.” Mayur Chindarkar (28) was arrested by the Thane Nagar police in March 2014, when he was allegedly found in possession of 252 grams of ganja, worth Rs 1,600. The prosecution held that Chindarkar had kept the samples in his socks and was trying to supply it inside Thane Central Prison. The accused’s advocate, Shekhar Bhandary, told the court that the prosecution had failed to explain the right description of the substance.

2018-04-22Illegal phone exchanges busted in Thane, 5 held - The Hindu
Illegal phone exchanges busted in Thane, 5 held MUMBA, APRIL 21, 2018 00:00 IST Racket estimated to have cost govt. Rs. 58 crore in lost revenue The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad on Thursday busted two illegal telephone exchanges in Thane district, which were being run using SIM boxes. Five people were arrested in connection with the case. According to ATS officers, the raids were conducted based on a tip-off. An officer said, “Based on the information received, we first raided a house in Azad Nagar, and arrested two brothers who were running an illegal telephone exchange. Five SIM boxes, 139 SIM cards and three routers were seized from them during the raid.” Information given by the arrested accused during interrogation led the ATS to another house in Mumbra, where three accused were allegedly running a similar racket. The officer said, “Our teams seized five more SIM boxes, 95 SIM cards and three routers from the house. Both raids were conducted in the presence of an officer from the Prosecution Branch of the Department of Telecommunications.” All five accused have been charged under the Indian Telegraph Act, 1885, the Indian Wireless and Telegraph Act, 1933 and the IPC, and inquiries have revealed the involvement of two more accused in the rackets. Both accused are absconding. A SIM box routes international calls through local SIM cards, helping the caller evade international call tariff and leading to loss of revenue for authorised service providers. The officer added, “Losses to the national exchequer due to the illegal telephone exchanges are estimated at Rs. 58 crore. The arrested accused were produced in court, which remanded in police custody till April 24. We are questioning them.”

2018-04-21As kids ask 'what's rape', parents turn to psychiatrists for answers - Times of India
As kids ask ‘what’s rape’, parents turn to psychiatrists for answers Updated: Apr 21, 2018, 22:55 IST Thane: ‘Mom, what is rape?’ inquired eight-year-old Prathamesh Kulkarni, with his eyes fixated to the television flashing the news about the gory incident at Kathua and Unnao. It’s not just Prathamesh, like him there are several other kids who want to know what is all this being shown in the news for last so many days. Psychiatrists and mental health experts feel parents should not shy away from such questions, in fact should be ready to answer them and explain the difference between a good touch and a bad touch. Dr. Shailesh Umate, psychiatrist at Institute for Psychological Health. “Since the incidents at Kathua and Unao many parents have called us seeking advice on how to handle such topics with their kids. We tell them not to make the child uncomfortable. Instead explain them about bad touch and good touch,’’ Dr Umate said. He added that children above the age of 12 years could be explained how forcible touching of the private parts amounts to rape. The specialists stated that availability of technology has made gathering formation very ease. if today parents don’t answer the questions, kids will learn things on their own and coould do it the wrong way. “Parents should not come under too much stress and in fact go for counselling if such incidents are bothering them, making them over protective about their kids. They should not restrict kids and not allow them to play or go anywhere out, by giving them phone or gadgets instead, this would hamper the personality of the child as the kid won’t get the adequate freedom which is needed. Also, if they are panicking or getting too anxious, then should seek out an expert’s help,” added Dr. Umate.

Updated: Apr 21, 2018 20:05 IST A city’s financial district is where its economic pulse lies. Its exact location, however, tends to be dynamic and in flux, often oscillating between the heart of a city and its outskirts. Over the past few decades, Mumbai’s traditional business districts of Nariman Point and Worli have found newer siblings in Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) and Lower Parel. Now, even that is changing. As these areas reach saturation point, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis recently granted permission for the 122-hectare Wadala Truck Terminal to be developed as Mumbai’s third official CBD (Central Business District), after Nariman Point and BKC. In the regional plan, are three SBDs (Secondary Business Districts) — Kharbao in Bhiwandi, Nilaje in Kalyan and Shedung in Panvel. These new development will multiply job opportunities in regions around Vasai-Virar, Mira-Bhayander, Thane and Bhiwandi. The long road home Mumbai remains one of the most expensive residential realty markets in India, with an estimated 29% of the city’s under-construction units costing more the Rs 1 crore per flat, according to a recent report by realty consultancy Knight Frank. As the city’s young, white-collar population moves to the fringe suburbs of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, including areas in Navi Mumbai and Thane, some of their employers are moving too. “Unlike the generation prior, the millennial isn’t keen to spend a few hours of his workday in a commute, urging realty developers to plan markets closer to where the labour force is,” says Shrikant Joshi, CEO of L&T Realty. L&T is tapping into the growing reluctance to commute with Seawoods Grand Central, a transit-oriented business park where Navi Mumbai’s Seawoods railway station occupies one level. “Seawoods Grand Central one of the few transit-oriented developments in India,” says Shrikant Joshi, CEO of L&T Realty. “The design and development are in keeping with the concept of a smart city, where everything from infrastructure to mobility and urban development are viewed and planned as interconnected aspects. This commercial project leverages rail and arterial road connectivity.” Around the world, there are vast examples that we are still aspiring to, such as Canary Wharf in London, IFC Hong Kong, Shinjuku Tokyo and Mockingbird Station in Dallas. These too had replaced older and more traditional business districts no longer able to meet the growing demands for space. “All of Mumbai’s historic commercial centres have become outmoded as demand grows and populations shift. There is no scope for redevelopment either. Most were in Mumbai’s southern areas, where a far smaller share of the population now lives,” says Ashutosh Limaye, head of research at JLL India. “The ones now finding favour are new and evolving commercial hubs such as Powai and Vikhroli, and planned business zones like Belapur.” BKC junior? “An analysis of Mumbai’s growth pattern over the last few decades shows that the city has been expanding without adequate investment in the development of trunk infrastructure such as access roads, public transport, solid waste management, recreational space, and adequate water supply. Trunk infrastructure has usually been added haphazardly as an afterthought in an ad hoc way,” states a JLL study published on the emergence of Oshiwara as Mumbai’s newest district centre. The Oshiwara District Centre (ODC) is being touted as the next BKC. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority is looking to capitalise on the new railway station nearby, Ram Mandir, and upcoming Metro routes that will connect Oshiwara to Seepz, Bandra, Colaba, Dahisar and Mankhurd by 2019. Six 90-ft roads are planned within the ODC for easy flow of traffic. Further afield, in Thane district, green buildings make up K Raheja Corp’s Mindspace in Airoli East. Here, office space comes with LEED certification, electrical car charging stations, low-flow faucets and fixtures, organic gardens and waste management facilities. In Ambernath, the renowned architect Hafeez Contractor’s GNP Galaxy is a commercial and manufacturing hub with two sister projects, GNP Galleria and GNP Arcadia, simultaneously being developed in Dombivili. All three parks are estimated to be complete by January 2021. “Our GNP Galaxy site is on the border of Ambernath and Ulhasnagar. While Ambernath has an MIDC, Ulhasnagar is full of illegal constructions. The nearest white-collar commercial hubs were in Kalyan, 12 km away. We zoned in the need for a full-fledged business park that would engage the local population.” says Rohit Dixit, sales director at GNP Group. What next? Does this mean Nariman Point and BKC will be dethroned by the new spaces? Not anytime soon, says Vikas Oberoi, CMD of Oberoi Realty. “With India rising on global investment charts and Mumbai being positioned as an international financial centre, there is enough opportunity for commercial hubs across Mumbai and its suburbs to thrive and coexist,” Oberoi adds. “BKC was the first business district to be set up outside the island city, and with its superior planning of office spaces, will continue to be one of the topmost business districts in the state. We believe there is opportunity for every business district to thrive.” The shift goes hand in hand with the migration of residential projects to suburbs and fringes of MMR. “There is in fact still a need for more CBDs within MMR,” says Kamal Khetan, CMD of Sunteck Realty. “The new airport in Navi Mumbai could in fact drive demand in a whole new cluster.” The Raheja District II business park in Juinagar, in fact, is already looking to capitalise on the proposed Navi Mumbai Airport Influence Notified Area, or NAINA. There is a plan for a parallel World Trade Centre-like outfit here. And a helpdesk to guide businesses through Customs, tax procedures, government incentive programmes and issues. “Navi Mumbai is set to be the next commercial centre for this region, and it will have better facilities, connectivity, affordability and social infrastructure. It will set the market on a new trajectory,” says Ashish Raheja, MD of Raheja Universal. “NAINA will increase the boundaries of Navi Mumbai, leading to increased opportunity as real-estate is built to meet the growing needs of a diverse range of businesses.”

2018-04-21Thane civic body's survey to check ground reality | mumbai news ... - Hindustan Times
Thane civic body’s survey to check ground reality The survey will define the financial viability of each cluster, demarcate boundaries of the city while mapping the Thane coastline and give accurate measurements of each plot in the city. mumbai Updated: Apr 22, 2018 00:42 IST The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) will soon undertake Rs5.97-crore ground level survey of the entire city for better implementation of development plans, smart city projects and cluster development schemes. A consultant surveyor will be appointed for the survey which will take three years and will be viable for five to ten years. The survey also will define the financial viability of each cluster, demarcate boundaries of the city while mapping the Thane coastline and give accurate measurements of each plot in the city, thus resolving any conflict of interest which arise while implementing any developmental project. “We have undertaken major developmental projects, several projects under the smart city scheme and the cluster development scheme. We need a detailed survey of every nook and corner of the city for this purpose. We have decided to appoint an agency for the survey. It will help implement each project better,” said an officer requesting anonymity. The survey will also benefit the upcoming cluster development project. It will give an idea of how many people will have to be rehabilitated in each cluster, the available residential and commercial areas in the city and the floor space index (FSI) calculations for each cluster. It will help in preparing the detailed project report (DPR) of each urban renewal plan (URP) in the cluster scheme. “This will be required for the stakeholders who invest in the project,” said the officer. The developmental plan (DP) of Thane city was implemented in 2003. The total area under TMC is 128.23sqm. There are 804 reserved plots in the DP and as per rules, TMC was supposed to develop 767 plots in ten years. However, only 40% of the DP has been implemented till now. The survey will focus on reservations which are encroached by surveying both the total reserved and encroached areas. It will help decide the transferrable development rights (TDR) to be given for these developmental works. It will also help in documentation of those plots whose reservations need to be modified. The officer also said, “The survey will demarcate the boundaries of reserved plots which need to be acquired and developed. The plots which belong to defence and government agencies as well as those that are protected and regulatory will be mapped. A map of water bodies in the city and any plan to divert them will be created under the survey.” WHAT THE SURVEY WILL DO • Detailed documentation and maps of all the reserved plots in the city will be made • Boundaries of roads, water bodies and coastline will be defined • Area of each of URPs in the clusters will be demarcated • Survey will decide TDR to be allotted for development • The survey will be completed in three years and will be valid for five to ten years What is a developmental plan? As per the Maharashtra Region and Town Planning Act, every municipal corporation should prepare a DP of the city to be implemented over the next twenty years. The DP is the blueprint for the city’s infrastructure development. It dictates the development of civic amenities, transportation networks, infrastructure and usage of land for that period. TMC’s DP explained History: The process of preparation of the draft DP was initiated in 1986.The draft development plan (DDP) was published in 199. After complying with all legal formalities, the revised draft DP was submitted for approval of the state in 1996. The state government after making necessary inquiries and consulting with the director, town planning of Maharashtra government, sanctioned the DP with some modifications on October 4, 1999. The excluded part (EP) was sanctioned on April 3, 2003. Thus, the DP for TMC came in to force from May 14, 2003. Salient features 128.23 sqm total area under TMC 59.30 sqm of this land is developable 36.82 sqm of this land is non-developable 32.11 sqm of this land is under green zone 12.67 sqm of this land is for 804 reserved sites in 11 planning sectors 7.42sqm total road area shown in the DP 26.65 sqm total residential area shown in the DP 12.54 sqm total industrial area shown in the DP Rs209 crore the cost of acquisition of entire land under reservation as per prices in 1991

Man kills leopard as ‘revenge’ for eating livestock, arrested in Thane mumbai Updated: Apr 22, 2018 01:01 IST Accused tells police that over the past year, the wild cat had eaten 30 goats and one cow from his cattle shelter A man from Chowk village in Raigad has been arrested for killing a leopard which he claims was responsible for attacking and eating his livestock and cattle. The accused, Tukaram Veer, 58, was taken into custody by the Thane crime branch unit 3 on Saturday. On Thursday, the Thane crime branch arrested two security guards, Vishal Laxman Dhanraj,30, and Sachin Janardan Mhatre,33, who had travelled to Kalyan to sell a leopard skin and a tiger skin. During the investigation it was ascertained that the tiger skin was fake. The leopard skin was real and estimated to be valued at Rs10 lakh. Saju Jhon, senior police inspector from the Thane crime branch unit 3 said, “After we arrested the security guards we interrogated them and found that a farmer had killed the leopard. We then sent a team to Chowk village and after proper analysis, we caught Veer.” During the investigation, Veer told police that he was fed up of the leopard attacking his livestock. He said that over the past year the wild cat had eaten 30 goats and one cow from his cattle shelter. “Veer had a country-made rifle with he used to shoot the leopard, a couple of months back. After he killed the animal, he planned to sell its skin and other parts. He took the help of the security guards in the hopes of hiding his actions from the other villagers,” Jhon added. The police are now in the process of recovering the country-made rifle and other parts of the leopard which they suspect Veer is still hiding in his house or at a relative’s place. Given that the man was in possession of a firearm, authorities suspect that he may have been more seriously involved in poaching. “This is a very serious issue. Due to mass urbanisation in and around the districts of Thane, Pune, Mumbai Raigad and Dahanu, the leopards are left with no space for natural food and territory. They started eating goats and other domestic animals. The state government should take major steps to avoid future conflict,” said Nilesh Bhanage - Founder of Plant and Animal Welfare Society (Paws).

Education for all gets green light in Thane mumbai Updated: Apr 22, 2018 00:53 IST A year ago, 12-year-old Shankar Pawar was happy begging at traffic signals. He used to see children going to the signal school at Teen Hath Naka but didn’t want to join them. Around the same time, Shankar met with an accident and injured his leg near the school. When his kin tried to take advantage of his broken leg by pressurising him to beg, the school stepped in and treated the boy. As the boy recuperated in the one-room school, he started enjoying the class. Now, he is happy in school. Shankar said, “I lived in the school for six months after the accident and today I know that I recovered because of my school. I want to study and complete my education.” Shankar is one of the many children whose life changed after they joined the civic-run signal school. Built in a container two years ago, the school has grown from 15 to 48 students. Two of its older students, who were dropouts, appeared for the recently concluded SSC Board exams. The signal school, which started in one container two years ago at the Teen Hath Naka, now has a book and toy library, a computer, nursery classroom, washrooms and robotic equipment. Shraddha Dandwate is among the five teachers at the signal school since it opened. Her main challenge was to get the students’ attention. “Initially, all of them dozed off. So, we had to adopt new teaching methods and be more animated.” The effort of the teachers is visible. The children, who used to the school has changed the children’s concepts of health, hygiene, behaviour and their approach towards life.

Thane gets its first colourful slum pocket, 4,000 more to be painted Apr 20, 2018, 22:38 IST THANE: The work of re-decorating as many as 4,000 homes in the drab-looking slum settlement of Indira Nagar has been taken up by the civic administration, starting earlier this week. A part of the TMC’s slum beautification plan, three slum pockets in Thane are all set to undergo a major revamp in the coming weeks. The exteriors of the shanties of Dongripada in Ghodbundar Road, Indira Nagar in Wagle Estate and Parsik Nagar in Kalwa will be painted with bright colours in the first phase. Officials said not only would the walls be painted with a riot of colours, but the residents would get lessons in education, sanitation and hygiene which would be inscribed on the walls. While some welcomed the move, some feel that the civic bureaucracy has failed them in providing the basic amenitiess like water, sanitation facility etc. Nishikant Dusad, a slum dweller at Indira Nagar who has been residing there since the past 30 years said, “Painting of walls and the roofs is fine, but what about our basic necessities. If the house is colourful but lives are still black-and white, then what is the point of having a colourful roof over the head? We still get water for only one hour a day. That too the timing of water supply is not fixed so at least one person in the household has to be at home at all times or else we would not get water for the day. No one is helping us with that.” A civic official said, “We are in the process of conducting a survey and do our best to solve their problems.”

2018-04-20Thane blaze: School violated safety norms, says fire brigade - Hindustan Times
Thane blaze: School violated safety norms, says fire brigade MUMBAI Updated: Apr 20, 2018 23:21 IST The Thane fire brigade has claimed that the Ghodbunder school, where a fire had broken out on Thursday, was flouting safety norms by undertaking activities in the basement of the school. Around 2,000 students were evacuates safely after a fire broke out owing to a short circuit in the basement of Universal High School, Brahmand. The school authorities have refuted the claims that any norms were flouted, claiming that the basement was used merely for storage. As per fire safety norms, a basement should not have any human occupancy and should be used only for parking or storage. Shashikant Kale, chief fire officer, Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC), said, “The basement has computers and air conditions which were functional during the fire. We have sealed the basement after finding evidence of human activity inside. Moreover, we have also asked the school to submit their documents including occupation certificate and fire NOC by early next week.” He added that school buildings should not be more than 30 metres in height, which is around seven floors. The school has ten floors, thus the permissions submitted by the school will decide its legal status. “If they are unable to submit the fire NOC, we will decide further course of action.” Sources from the school confirmed that the basement was used as an art room. A source from the school said, “The basement was not merely a storeroom but also an art room where teachers used to sit and do their school work. Students also frequented the place to take the art material or submit the art work. There were thousands of papers, colours, cardboards and mount boards which caught fire in Thursday’s incident. If a student or teacher would have been trapped in the fire, rescue would be difficult as there was no ventilation or emergency exit.” The source claimed that the room is near the air conditioner duct and was already in smokes when the school teachers reached there. The fire spread to another room due to the combustible art work. The school employees had complained to the authorities about the room, but these went unheard,said the source. Jesus Lal, CEO of Universal School, said, “The basement of our institute is used for storage and due to fluctuations in the MSEB line, there was a short circuit that led to a fire. We diagnosed the situation, followed the emergency protocol and evacuated the school building. Even before the arrival of the fire brigade, we used our fire extinguishers to douse the fire. We replaced all fire extinguishers. As per protocol, the fire brigade was called, and they checked the premises to ensure it is safe. We have not flouted any rules.”

2018-04-20TMC mulls fresh alternative sites for crematoriums - Times of India
TMC mulls fresh alternative sites for crematoriums Apr 20, 2018, 23:07 IST Thane: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has shortlisted three locations for constructing crematoriums to cater to the rising population along the Ghodbunder Road area. The location also includes an existing crematorium that is non-functional at Rambaug, which will be renovated in this plan. The other two locations will be developed on amenity plots at Tikujiniwadi. A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting chaired by guardian minister Eknath Shinde and municipal officials on Thursday following a furore over construction of crematoriums within the dense localities at Pokhran Road 1 and Mulla Baug. Shinde directed the civic body to restore and revamp the existing Rambaug crematorium near Upvan and widen the road leading to the Hindu crematorium site. The minister also instructed civic officials to purchase four vehicles to be used as hearse vans with a fibre cubicle in the rear to facilitate a hassle-free last journey. “The Rambaug facility was in use until the past few years, but remained inaccessible due to lack of a proper road. The work is likely to be undertaken soon after taking local residents into confidence,” said an elected representative. Another facility at Tikujiniwadi is also likely to be developed on an amenity plot measuring 1,600sqm or a 1,200sqm plot adjoining the Mhada housing scheme. The projects will be undertaken after ensuring the nearby settlements are not affected. A proposal will be put up before the general body meeting next month and the work is likely to start before October 1, said an official statement from the office of MLA Pratap Sarnaik, who had initially proposed the two crematoriums to be set up. The issue of constructing the crematoriums within dense residential settlements escalated with several political parties jumping in the fray to ensure the crematoriums was not developed. After Sarnaik raised the issue of lack of adequate crematoriums in the growing area along Ghodbunder Road, TMC promptly announced plans to construct two facilities at Pokhran Road 1 and Mulla Baug. The TMC is believed to have decided to rethink its initial plans to construct these facilities at the plots surrounded by residential societies.

Illegal phone exchanges busted in Thane, 5 held APRIL 21, 2018 01:01 IST UPDATED: APRIL 21, 2018 01:01 IST Racket estimated to have cost govt. ?58 crore in lost revenue Mumbai: The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad on Thursday busted two illegal telephone exchanges in Thane district, which were being run using SIM boxes. Five people were arrested in connection with the case. According to ATS officers, the raids were conducted based on a tip-off. An officer said, “Based on the information received, we first raided a house in Azad Nagar, Thane and arrested two brothers who were running an illegal telephone exchange. Five SIM boxes, 139 SIM cards and three routers were seized from them during the raid.” Information given by the arrested accused during interrogation led the ATS to another house in Mumbra, where three accused were allegedly running a similar racket. The officer said, “Our teams seized five more SIM boxes, 95 SIM cards and three routers from the house. Both raids were conducted in the presence of an officer from the Prosecution Branch of the Department of Telecommunications.” All five accused have been charged under the Indian Telegraph Act, 1885, the Indian Wireless and Telegraph Act, 1933 and the IPC, and inquiries have revealed the involvement of two more accused in the rackets. Both accused are absconding. A SIM box routes international calls through local SIM cards, helping the caller evade international call tariff and leading to loss of revenue for authorised service providers. The officer added, “Losses to the national exchequer due to the illegal telephone exchanges are estimated at ?58 crore. The arrested accused were produced in court, which remanded in police custody till April 24. We are questioning them.”

Five to ten acres of land for commercial purpose will be allotted to local traders, including vegetable and fish vendors. A plot in each of the URP will also be reserved for civic usage such as transfer stations and decentralised waste management plants.” The Urban Renewal Plans are also more refined than they were a month ago when the first presentation was made with new amenities added to each of the clusters. The city got approval for the implementation of the cluster development scheme on July 5, 2017 from the state government. In March this month, the Thane civic commissioner and the guardian minister of Thane gave the first presentation of the scheme. On Friday, the town planning department had conducted a presentation on the scheme for the general body. “Twenty percent people in Thane reside in dangerous constructions. Most of them also live in illegal constructions and will have no right to the title of their property. The cluster scheme will be implemented in such areas which have 40 per cent dangerous buildings and 25 per cent slums. The scheme will free major portion of forest or CRZ areas which are now encroached,” said Nimbalkar. He added that the city will have 44 Urban Renewal Plans instead of 43. “The city will get 2.5 lakh new homes under the scheme while 650 hectare land will be either open space or road network. Several additional amenities like SATIS and educational hub have been proposed added for Diva.” The Urban Renewal Plans got approval from the general body under section 37 (1) of the MRTP which means that the corporation can start making modifications in the Development Plan, start the change of land reservation and also publish the plans. Nimbalkar said the Urban Renewal Plans will be published next week. “Apart from publishing them, the town planning officials will conduct meetings at ward levels with the residents explaining to them the cluster scheme. The doubts and confusions of the residents will also be addressed,” Nimbalkar added. General body to have final say Although the general body gave approval for the cluster scheme under the 37 (1) section of MRTP, they have suggested several modifications. Naresh Mhaske, leader of the house, said, “The general body should take the final decision on the cluster scheme. In cases where there is conflict among tenants, land owners and developers, the general body will be the deciding authority. If there is no response to any of the tenders for the scheme for over three months, the general body will decide the further course of action. It will also be the final authority on approving any changes in the cluster scheme.” The general body has also asked the corporation to safeguard the rights of the land owner while implementing the scheme. They have said a case can be registered against owners who will obstruct development under the scheme.

Abu Salem wants to marry, applies for 45 days’ parole Updated: Apr 21, 2018, 09:49 IST THANE: Terror convict Abu Salem has appealed to the prison department from his Taloja jail cell for parole of 45 days for his wedding with his new lady love, Kausar Bahar. Salem, convicted of terrorism and facing trial for a string of gangland killings and extortion, is understood to have fixed May 5 as the auspicious day for the the nikah with the 27-year-old Mumbra woman. A top police officer confirmed the development and said: “We have received the applications from the convict, Abu Salem, and the local police is processing the application.” Family members of Kausar Bahar were reportedly questioned by the police about the validity of Salem’s claim. Salem had claimed he had married her “over the phone” during a train journey, when he was being taken to Lucknow for a court hearing under police escort. The woman said the news reports of her marriage had defamed her and now as no one else would tie the knot with her she was ready to sign the nikahnama with Salem. Bahar had threatened to commit suicide if she was not allowed to marry Salem and had moved an application to the effect in court. The police said it was not the first time that Salem had tried to get permission to marry the woman and had made many applications in the TADA court pleading that he be escorted to the registrar of marriages office in Mumbai. Salem was last year convicted in the Mumbai bomb blasts case of 1993 as one of the key conspirators; he knowingly facilitated the transportation and supply of arms and ammunition for intended terrorist activities. Salem was extradited from Portugal along with his then lover, one-time Hindi film starlet Monica Bedi, to stand trial in the case. The prosecution has sought a life sentence for the gangster, who is already in jail for the murder of builder Pradeep Jain.

Illegal telephone exchanges busted in Thane, one arrested Last Updated at April 20, 2018 21:05 IST The Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) of Maharashtra today claimed to have busted two illegal telephone exchanges operating in neighbouring Thane, and arrested a man. Police were looking for two more persons in the case, an ATS official said, adding that the accused's possible links with terrorist organisations too were being probed. As per the preliminary investigation by the Department of Telecommunications (DOT), these exchanges caused a loss of about Rs 58 crore to the government, said the official. After getting a tip-off, ATS sleuths and officials of the prosecution branch of the DOT carried out a raid in Azadnagar area of Thane yesterday, he said. They found that a 28-year-old man -- an Arabic teacher hailing from Azamgarh of Uttar Pradesh -- and his younger brother had set up the illegal exchange, he said. The ATS official did not reveal the arrested man's name. The 'exchange' routed international Voice-Over-Internet-Protocol (VOIP) calls to local mobile numbers through an "illegal international gateway". This caused a revenue loss to the DOT, he said. Police recovered 139 SIM cards, a laptop, five SIM box-machines for call transforming and three routers from his residence, the officer said. Following his interrogation, ATS team raided another house in nearby Mumbra, where five illegal international gateways, SIM boxes, 95 SIM cards, three routers and a laptop were seized, the officer said. The ATS registered a case with its Kala Chowki unit in Mumbai under the Indian Telegraph Act, Indian Wireless and Telegraph Act and IPC Sections 420 (cheating), the ATS official said, adding that further probe was on.

The police have initiated investigations to find out if her death was accidental or a suicide. The woman, Vaishali Jajoo (41), lived with her husband and 15-year-old son in Raheja Gardens in the Teen Haath Naka area of Thane (West), the police said.

CCTV clue “We checked the CCTV camera footage of her residential complex, and she was seen leaving the building around 8.30 p.m. on Tuesday, after which she went missing. She used to work with a private firm in Goregaon, and left shortly after she returned from work,” senior police inspector Ravikant Malekar, Wagle Estate police station, said.

2018-04-19Nivara Parishad in Thane to take care of would be PAPs - DNA India - Daily News & Analysis
Nivara Parishad in Thane to take care of would be PAPs The Thane Matdata Jagran Manch has organised a Nivara Parishad on April 21 for the benefit of those residents whose houses are and will be demolished for various civic projects or are forced to stay in dilapidated homes due to policy reasons. Renowned activist Medha Patkar will also be present at this Parishad. There are over 1 lakh families in Thane who are soon going to be homeless even after having a roof over their heads. "There are many new civic and government projects coming up in the city in the coming months. But there are no places to rehabilitate those who will be affected by this project," says Sanjeev Sane, Thane Matdata Jagran Manch (TMJM). TJMJ is a citizens body which has leading doctors, lawyers, professors, advocates and other professionals as its members. Moreover, the cluster development policy has also led to ambiguity among Thanekars. "When the cluster policy was announced by the TMC it said 13 lakh houses will be built in Thane. This is good news for builders and politicians as 13 lakh homes will bring in that much money to the real estate sector," he adds. "But what about those who have bigger homes which will be taken away to build the cluster? Will they get the same area? Will authorised buildings be included in these clusters?" he asks. Similarly, lack of proper redevelopment policy of old buildings in Naupada and other areas of Thane will also affect people. "Since there is only an FSI of one, none of the builders want to redevelop these buildings. And people are forced to stay in dilapidated structures which may collapse anytime," he says. All these factors will cause huge displacement of people in the coming years says TJMJ. Hence, to mobilise the support of all those Thanekars who are going to lose their homes due to some project or the other for no fault of theirs, TJMJ has organised the Nivara Parishad on Sunday at B-cabin road, Thane west at 5.30pm. "We have seen that when slum people get displaced, lower middle class and middle class does not support them and vice-versa. But all these projects are going to affect all these classes. Hence, we are trying to the bridge the gap between them through this Parishad," he says.

2018-04-19Fire breaks out in Thane school, extinguishers on premises defunct - Hindustan Times
Fire breaks out in Thane school, extinguishers on premises defunct MUMBAI Updated: Apr 19, 2018 18:53 IST A fire broke out in the basement of Universal High School at Brahmand, in Thane, on Thursday morning. No casualties were reported and students were safely evacuated. The Regional Disaster Management Cell and the fire brigade reached the spot with three fire engines and a quick rescue van after the fire broke out around 9am while the school was in session. Senior fire officials were at the spot. “The fire was huge and occurred because of an electrical spark in the store room in the school basement. Around 2,000 students including the staff were evacuated. The fire was doused within 25 to 30 minutes and was followed by the cooling operation,” said Shashikant Kale, chief fire officer, Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC). The school has neither accepted, nor denied the short circuit. HT visited the school but was not allowed to enter. Despite repeated attempts, principal Syamali Chowdhury was not available for comments. According to Kale, fire extinguishers placed in the school were dysfunctional and were at the top floor of the school, which is illegal. “The investigation is being carried out to find the exact reason of the fire. The school has been asked to submit the fire safety documents, as the most of the fire extinguishers in the school were dysfunctional,” he said. “The incident could have been major. Fire officials should investigate all safety norms which the school has to follow to ensure the security of our children,” said the parent of a student from Universal High School. Parents of the school students learnt about the incident after the news was circulated on a WhatsApp group. “I was on my way towards office, when I got to know about the same on a school WhatsApp group. By the time I inquired about it, the fire had been doused and the classes had resumed. I was informed that the children had been safely evacuated,” said another parent of a student from the school, requesting anonymity.

2018-04-19TMC relaxes fire safety norms for city hospitals - Times of India
TMC relaxes fire safety norms for Thane hospitals Apr 20, 2018, 01:13 IST THANE: The municipal corporation is believed to have relaxed the fire safety norms for hospitals in the city after having a discussion with guardian minister Eknath Shinde, members of the medical fraternity and fire officials about renewing their registration on Wednesday. The guardian minster, along with heath officer and fire officer, had a discussion for around two hours over the possibilities of relaxing the fire safety norms in order to make sure that the hospitals receive an NOC from the fire department and later are able to renew their registration. “Almost 70% of the hospitals in the city are facing registration problems as they did not have the change of user (COU) and change of activity (COA) due to which thet we were not getting an NOC from the fire department. But we are going to apply for a COU and have been told that the penalties will be waved off as the compliance will be based prospectively. Also to get the COU, one will have to do the architectural changes as per the requirements given. So it will become easier to get a no-objection certificate from the fire department,” said Dr. Dinesh Dinkar, president of Indian Medical Association (IMA), Thane. The officials claimed that as these hospitals are over a decade or more old and did not have an OC and COU, they could not renew their registration on March 31 when it had expired. Also, the last renewal done by these people from the medical fraternity was three years ago. “A government resolution (GR) was passed in September 2017, which stated that an illegal structure can be regularised if they pay the compounding charges as these structures will be considered as compounded structures. So as the hospitals do not have OC, we would be carrying out this procedure,” said Shashikant Kale, chief fire officer, Thane. Almost 70% hospitals are facing registration problems as they did not have the change of user and change of activity due to which thet we were not getting an NOC from the fire department. But we are going to apply for a COU and have been told that the penalties will be waved off as the compliance will be based prospectively.

Lisa Thane: Dan Miller, a man of integrity and honestyApril 18, 2018 Share Tweet Comments (0) April 18, 2018Mark Johnson (not the former Grass Valley mayor), whose Other Voices appeared in The Union on April 5, needs to get his facts straight.First of all, $70,000 in taxpayer dollars was not wasted on Measure W. Measure W was put on the ballot at the request of the growers and the cost was zero, $0. It was Measure S, a growers' initiative, that was a test case for statewide promotion of medical marijuana while not addressing the concerns of local citizens, that cost $70,000.Secondly, his statement "$140,000 thrown out the window for the Community Advisory Group" is ludicrous. The CAG was also requested by the growers to make recommendations to the board of supervisors on a permanent ordinance. The $140,000 was spent on a consultant who was hired to work with the group but who could not get them to come to a consensus.So the way I see it, the Board of Supervisors is doing all it can to accommodate the demands of the growers, and that costs money.I believe Dan Miller has been fiscally responsible, concerned about the citizens he represents, and has performed his duties as supervisor with integrity and honesty.Lisa ThaneRecommended Stories For YouGrass Valley Share Tweet Trending In: LettersLawrence Gold: Opinions versus factsSarah Daley: Elect Hilary Hodge for supervisorDon Daniels: Re-elect Dan MillerDonna Burley: Be a Dan fanLisa Thane: Dan Miller, a man of integrity and honestyTrending SitewideNevada County authorities: 1 dead in airport fire (VIDEO)UPDATE: Woman killed in Dog Bar Road wreck ID’d as Heather Stoddard, 40, of Grass Valley1 dies in Nevada County Airport hangar fire; 1 treated for smoke inhalationNew 19-lot residential development proposed in Grass ValleyHeather Stoddard, of Grass Valley, ID’d as woman in fatal wreck Top JobsBilingual Aides Bilingual Teachers ...

Fake loan scam: Accused posed as cops, IT officials Apr 20, 2018, 02:56 IST THANE: Investigators probing the fake loan scam case involving former actress Maria Susairaj have found that the accused used to impersonate as police officials or Income Tax (IT) department and threaten victims. The modus operandi of the gang was to trap cash-strapped businessmen and offer to facilitate multi-core loans in return for a 1% commission. While the funds would never be made available to the businessman, the gang would pocket the commission amount in advance. The city police busted the racket with the arrest of four persons, including a history-sheeter Paromita Chakraborty and Susairaj. “New details have emerged in the case in which some members of the gang used to pose as police officers and at times as Income Tax officers. They would demand 1% commission that they had paid for the loan,’’ a police officer said.

2018-04-18Short-saffed, ill-equiped to control monkeys in Thane: Forest dept - Hindustan Times
Monkeys create ruckus in Thane, officials fail to rescue them citing staff crunch A?group of five monkeys from Sanjay Gandhi National Park has been raiding houses in Thane for the past few days Updated: Apr 19, 2018 01:02 IST Days after Thane residents complained about a group of monkeys from Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) raiding their homes,forest department officials said they lack manpower and equipment to rescue the monkeys. According to residents, a group of five monkeys has been spotted in Naupada, Pachpakhadi, Kopri, Teen Hath Naka, Harinivas Circle, near Mayor’s bungalow and Ghodbunder Road. Animal rescuers said the monkeys have moved from their natural habitat to the city in search of food and water. Mayur Maru, 44, a resident of Sita Vihar, Naupada, Thane, said that last week the monkeys entered his house through a window. “My wife operates an in-house boutique. The monkeys spoiled the clothes and damaged mannequins. The monkeys left only after we chased them out with the help of security guards,” said Maru. He added that it was for the third time that monkeys have raided his house. “Forest department officials said they can’t do anything because they are short-staffed and lack adequate equipment. Hence, they can only spread awareness among citizens on how to coexist with the monkeys,” said Maru. Residents said they have been complaining to the forest department for the past 15 days about the monkeys, but to no avail. Monkey rescuer and president of Thane Natural History Society, Kaustubh Darves, 29, said, “Whenever there are complaints received by the forest department about monkeys entering housing societies or in a particular house, they are being forwarded to us. We try to help them in every possible way. During rescue, we need a van and a cage. But none of these ae are available with the [forest] department.” He added, “There is no permanent solution to this problem. People will have to learn to live alongside monkeys. However, we need trained forest staff who can respond during emergencies.” Forest department official said they have informed their seniors about the issue and urgent need for manpower and equipment. “As Thane city is located close to SGNP, monkeys can easily enter urban areas near the forest. We have informed the department concerned about our requirement, which are likely to be provided soon,” said Dilip Deshmukh, range forest officer (RFO), Thane. He also said the department takes help of the NGO and the animal rescuers from the city from time-to-time.

2018-04-18TMC floats tenders for pre-monsoon work in Thane - Times of India
TMC floats tenders for pre-monsoon work in Thane Apr 19, 2018, 01:24 IST THANE: With the monsoon just over a month away, the civic solid waste management department has started inviting tenders for their annual pre-monsoon drainage cleaning drives, which is expected to start on May 1. Every year, Thane city is riddled with water-logging issues and flooding in low lying areas during heavy rains as the storm water drains and massive nullahs that run through the city overflow with heaps of rubbish and get choked. While the civic body usually begins the clean up drive in the first week of May to limit the ill consequences that come with the rains in June, citizens believe that this one-month work is not enough to rid the 300km nullahs of the garbage in it. “I live in a low lying area and am prepared for water logging every year. However, because of the storm water drains and the nullahs are filled with waste, water logging in our area brings sewerage water and chunks of rubbish in our homes. This is dangerous and can cause a lot of health issues. Clearly the Thane Municipal Corporation’s (TMC) month-long drives have not worked all these years. They should carry out this work all year round,” said Anisha Pathankar, a resident of Vrindavan. Meanwhile, V Kirkire, a resident of Gawand Baug at the foothills of Yeoor, said, “Every year we hear the TMC spending crores to hire labourers and machines to clean nullahs, but we have never seen them in our area. As we live at the foothills of Yeoor the rainwater comes gushing down, bringing with it all the waste on the way, and not one official has come to inspect the nullah in our area till date.” While many Thaneites are now questioning this last minute incomplete initiatives by the civic body, officials claim that the issue of waste being strewn in nullahs will soon come to an end. “The main reason for the quantum of waste in the nullahs is because the residents of the slum pockets around these massive drains end up throwing their household waste in it. Even if we clean the drains all through the year, there will still be garbage dumped in it. To nip this issue in the bud we are planning various initiatives including door-to-door waste collection drive in slums,” said a civic official. “As of now, we have started tendering process for the pre-monsoon drainage cleanup activities and the work should commence on May 1. We will be working through the month across the city to prepare for the monsoon,” added a senior civic official.

2018-04-188 traffic signals, blinkers to be installed on Pokhran Road 1 - Times of India
8 traffic signals, blinkers to be installed on Pokhran Road 1 Apr 19, 2018, 01:19 IST THANE: Pokhran Road 1, which has become an intercity expressway, though welcomed by motorists, is causing inconvenience to pedestrians as they are unable to cross the eight-lane road without pauses. In order to make it easier for citizens to cross the stretch, the Thane traffic department along with the civic body is planning to install eight traffic signals and blinkers. A survey was conducted by the traffic department of the approximately 2km stretch and noticed that even though there were zebra crossings in some portions, the vehicles would speed and not allow pedestrians to cross. This caused a huge problem, especially to schoolchildren, who had to cross the road after school. “Pedestrians were finding it difficult to cross the eight lanes, four on each side. To make sure that there are no accidents, we have installed signals at the junctions and even blinkers. The device will be put up at Vartak Nagar, Shastri Nagar, Samtanagar junction, Singhania school and Thirani school,” said Anil Mangale, inspector, traffic department. Officials stated that the blinkers are ideally put up to alert the vehicles to slow down but many are unaware about the rules. Also, during peak hours even constables will be stationed at the junctions. “The blinkers indicate that there is zebra crossing ahead and the motorist needs to slow down. A pedestrian walking near this device has a right to lift his/her hand to stop the vehicle and cross the road,” said a traffic official. The locals from the area claimed that this was a much needed initiative as it is a task to cross the huge road without pausing. Atul Ghangurde (58), a resident of Pokhran Road 1, said, “Ever since the road widening work was completed, it has been difficult for pedestrians to cross the stretch as vehicles are always in speed. Many times it so happens that pedestrians have to cross the stretch in two phases as one cannot cross the entire four lane stretch at one go. Senior citizens and children may be facing even greater difficulty.”

It has been 165 years since and on this occasion, passenger associations had proposed the installation of old steam engine as a memorabilia, if not a world class rail museum at Thane. Thane’s passenger representatives had submitted a letter to the Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on April 12 demanding the same. The letter states the local passenger associations have been demanding at least a steam engine to be installed at Thane station and requests for directions to the local railways for the same. “As it is the Transport Museum at CSMT is most likely not to come up. With Thane-Bori Bunder being the first rail route, as a token of history, we asked the minister to at least keep a steam engine for public view,” said Nandkumar Deshmukh, president, Thane Railway Pravasi Sangh. Passenger associations claim that despite Thane holding historical relevance for Indian Railways, it remains in a poor condition. There was a proposal to convert Thane into a world class station, which barely took off. “Everyday around 5-6 lakh people travel via Thane through main (CSMT-Kalyan) and trans-harbour (Thane-Vashi) lines. Despite this, the station is neglected and facilities provided are insufficient,” added Deshmukh. The BJP MLA Sanjay Kelkar along with passengers association and rail commuters celebrated ths day in grand way. A cake was cut and people who worked with the railways were felicitated. Kelkar then declared that there has been positive reply from railway minister about the memorabilia. Besides, there were other programmes too that marked the historical day at Thane station.

2018-04-17Schools get time till today to fill up RTE seats | Thane News - Times ... - Times of India
Schools get time till today to fill up RTE seats Apr 17, 2018, 22:45 IST Thane: Even though over 3,700 RTE seats have already been claimed in Thane schools according to the Right to Education online portal, education officials assert that these numbers are bound to shoot up after all schools update their round 1 inputs into the system by Tuesday. Of the total 4,2678 RTE applications in Thane district this year, as many as 15,202 applications were considered for the first round of the lottery system. However, only 5,702 of these applications, wherein there was less than a km between the applicant’s home and preferred school, were considered in the first round of the lottery system, of which around at least 65% have secured a seat so far. “While the website shows that of the 5,702 applications, 3707 have secured seats, these numbers are not fixed as there are many schools that are yet to update their school’s RTE round 1 on the website through their login. They have been given the deadline of April 17 to do so, after which we will get the actual numbers,” said an education officer from the Thane Zilla Parishad. This data, which is to be uploaded by each school, will include the list of applications selected in their school, the number of students who confirmed the seats, those who refrained from completing this procedure, those who rejected the seats because the sought admission in another school as well as the remaining vacant RTE seats in their school. “After we gauge the number of vacant seats, we can set the date for the next lottery round which will include the applications of students who stay within 3 kilometres from the school they have chosen, and the admissions will begin thereafter,” she added. These officials believe that their efforts to increase RTE admission has been clearly reflected in the increasing number of admitted students. “Unlike the previous years, we not only added this school-home proximity criterion for the first round to ensure that the students didn’t have to pay for transportation, but also extended the deadline for the selected students to claim their seats thrice over the past month, to improve enrolment numbers,” the education officer said. “Our education officer even sent out warning letters to the schools to refrain from asking students for any fees in any form as RTE education is for those from the poorer income families and is completely free. The effect of these initiatives is already showing as we have over 65% completed admissions in round 1,” she added.
2018-04-17Mumbra bypass road to be open to traffic for 4 days - Times of India
Mumbra bypass road to be open to traffic for 4 days Apr 17, 2018, 22:44 IST Thane: The Mumbra bypass road will remain open for vehicular traffic for the next three to four days as the Thane traffic department has postponed the repair work on the road citing insufficient time to create awareness and plan alternate routes. The department had earlier announced that the Mumbra bypass road will be shut from April 16 as the Public Works Department (PWD) was going to conduct the repair work of the dilapidated road over bridge (ROB) at the bypass. However, since the awareness about the repair and information on the alternative routes were not adequately reached out to the citizens, the maintenance work has been postponed and the road can be used the next three to four days. “As we were busy finalising the alternative roads we could not inform about the same to the citizens in time, so we will be starting the work only once people know about it. We are yet to decide on the number of wardens and the areas in which they will be placed during the two-month span when the work will take place. Also, we are yet to get the sign boards, which will be placed to facilitate the drivers or riders about the new routes,” said Amit Kale, deputy commissioner of police, traffic. Officials claimed that they will even be doing some repair and maintenance work on the service roads, which will be used during diversions so that any uneven roads or potholes do not lead to any mishaps or traffic congestion. “We are going to cut out some part of the divider on the Teen Hath Naka road so that we are able to do diversion there. Also, we will be taking down the foot over bridge (FOB) near the gurudwara so that there is enough space and more vehicles could ply on the road,” added Kale. Once the repair work on the Mumbra bypass starts, over 40,000 heavy vehicles will be seen on the interior parts of Navi Mumbai and Thane city. The PWD is going to put bearings and do distressing work on the ROB as only the upper part of the bridge is affected and the pillars are intact. This will help in decreasing the vibrations which one feels while travelling on the bridge. Also, as the bypass has sharp turns due to which there have been many accidents wherein the vehicles have toppled down from the mountain, they will be placing stone barricades and even the potholes on the bypass will be filled.

Thane: Stifling week ahead in district, warn weathermen Apr 17, 2018, 22:45 IST THANE: After experiencing a pleasant weather over the past few days with the temperature hovering around 33 degree Celsius, weathermen have advised citizens to brace themselves for a stifling week. Experts asserted that temperature in the lake city is expected to rise by five to six degrees and will continue to remain so for the next three days. The Indian Meteorological Department for Thane district has predicted that the temperature is likely to even reach the 40 degree Celsius mark on Tuesday. Fortunately, the soaring mercury levels are likely to dip from 39-40 degree Celsius to 35-36 degrees by the end of the week, giving some respite to residents. Weathermen claimed that this drop by a few notches will reduce the minimum temperatures which are expected to hover around 24 degree Celsius. Mahesh Palawat, chief meteorologist at skymetweather, a private Indian company that provides weather forecast, said, “In the coming three days, the winds are likely to change their direction. Earlier, we had the westerly winds which are relatively cooler as they come from the Arabian Sea. But now, for the next few days, we will be getting winds from the North i.e. parts of Gujarat and Rajasthan where the temperatures have already surpassed the 40 degree range. So, we will be experiencing hotter days. But, the situation is likely to change as the winds would resume its normal direction by Thursday, wherein the temperatures hover around 35-36 degree Celsius.” Citizens said that they have been anticipating the situation and preparing themselves for the same. “Since it was quite pleasant over the past few days, I had stopped using the air conditioner at night and hoping for a decent electricity bill. But now, I think I will have to start using it again. Even in the afternoons I will ensure that my windows are shut so as to not let the hot air in,” said Aakash Naik, a resident of Ghodbundar Road. Sonali Deshpande, another resident said, “It is very important to keep oneself hydrated during such temperatures. The body needs to be kept cool failing which stomach infections are very likely.”

2018-04-16HC questions Mumbai, Thane civic bodies on tree felling | Business ... - Business Standard
HC questions Mumbai, Thane civic bodies on tree felling Last Updated at April 16, 2018 17:55 IST The Bombay High Court today asked the Mumbai and Thane civic bodies to explain if their municipal commissioners take expert opinion before passing orders to fell trees. As per a recent amendment to the Maharashtra (Urban Areas) Protection and Preservation of Trees Act, any proposal to cut up to 25 trees can be placed before the commissioner of the civic body concerned while the proposals to cut more than 25 trees have to be sent to the Tree Authority set up under the Act. A division bench of Justices A S Oka and Riyaz Chagla posed the question to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) while hearing a petition by social activist Zoru Bhathena. Bhathena activist has challenged the validity of the amendment to the Act that conferred special power upon the municipal commissioner to decide on the proposals to remove, fell or transplant up to 25 trees. "How will the commissioner exercise this power? Will he take expert opinion? The commissioner himself is not an expert on this issue... then how does he arrive at a decision as to which tree has to be removed, cut or transplanted?" Justice Oka asked. The bench also asked whether the commissioners would publish their decision so that an aggrieved party could challenge it. "As per the amendment, if the commissioner passes an order to fell a tree today, the tree could be cut the next day. There is no buffer time for a person aggrieved by the order to challenge the order," the court said. "Once a tree is cut, it is dead and gone. Hence, there has to be application of mind before passing orders," Justice Oka said. Are the civic bodies ready to make a statement that the commissioners' decision would be published and a buffer time given to enable people to challenge their order, he asked. The bench posted the petition for further hearing tomorrow by when the civic bodies have to reply to the court's queries. The petition had pointed out that that tree-cutting proposals were being split as the Tree Authority looks only into those proposals that concern more than 25 trees. According to the petition, in January itself, 49 proposals for cutting 806 trees were submitted to the civic commissioner of Mumbai.

Thane: Eight hooch-makers acquitted as raiding police team goofs up Updated: Apr 17, 2018, 05:11 IST THANE: The Thane district court on Monday rapped the crime branch of Thane police for not following the basic procedure while raiding an illicit brew manufacturing site two years ago. This goof-up, on the part of the police, led to the acquittal of the eight people accused in the case. On November 15, 2016, the police raided an illegal distillery along the creek in Mothi Desai village where eight illegal units were distilling hooch, prosecutor Rekha Hiwrale told the court. The police claimed to have to stumbled upon 6,800 litres of illicit brew stored in 155 drums at the spot. While the raw material used to distil was destroyed, the police collected samples from various drums. These samples, which should have been collected in separate bottles, were all taken in one bottle of 180 ml. The accused fled the spot when the raiding team swooped down on the illegal brew-making den. They were subsequently arrested and booked under the Maharashtra Prohibition Act. Crime branch officials, under the supervision of senior inspector Nitin Thakre, collected the samples. Assistant sessions judge H B Shelke, while acquitting the eight accused, observed, "For establishing the offences punishable under the prohibition Act, it is necessary to establish that the material seized contain the alcohol or stupefying intoxicating or unwholesome drug. For that purpose, the sample from every container needs to be taken separately. But, though there were 170 drums of liquor, the sample was taken in a single bottle..." The judge noted that proper procedure had not been followed while taking samples from the spot.

Thane local passengers write to Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, ask for memorabilia Updated: Apr 16, 2018, 06:50 AM IST India's first train ran from Thane to Bori Bunder in Mumbai on 16 April, 1853. It has been 165 years since and on this occasion, passenger associations have proposed the installation of old steam engine as a memorabilia, if not a world class rail museum, at Thane. This comes after the plan for a World Transport Museum at CSMT has been put in cold storage. Thane's passenger representatives have submitted a letter to Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on 12 April demanding the same. The letter states the local passenger associations have been demanding at least a steam engine to be installed at Thane station and requests for directions to the local railways (in this case Central Railway) for the same. "As it is the Transport Museum at CSMT is most likely not to come(sic). With Thane-Bori Bunder being the first rail route, as a token of history, we asked the minister to at least keep a steam engine for public view," said Nandkumar Deshmukh, president, Thane Railway Pravasi Sangh. Passenger associations claim that despite Thane holding historical relevance for Indian Railways, it remains in a poor condition. There was a proposal to convert Thane into a world class station, which barely took off. "Everyday around 5-6 lakh people travel via Thane through main (CSMT-Kalyan) and trans-harbour (Thane-Vashi) lines. Despite this, the station is neglected and facilities provided are insufficient," added Deshmukh. Meanwhile, passenger associations will be holding a small function to felicitate railwaymen in Thane and neighbouring stations. They will call the ticket checkers, gangmen working on tracks, station masters and other staff there for the same. At present there are wooden pillars, station office on platform 2 which has developed cracks and other relics at Thane station which has survived these many years.

Thane police directed to be polite to those filing RTI complaints after DCP assaults activist The next time an RTI applicant approaches the Thane police, he may be surprised to find a courteous officer at the other end. The Thane police has issued a circular, asking police officers to be courteous towards RTI applicants, while they are interacting with them. The letter, which is signed by additional commissioner of police, Makarand Ranade (administration), asks all deputy commissioners of police (DCP), assistant commissioner of police and other police officers to ensure that if they do not talk courteously while interacting with applicants, they will face disciplinary action as per service rules of the state police. The letter dated February 22, 2018, has come under the public domain recently. The Thane police was recently in the news for ill-treating an RTI applicant. DNA, in its January 28, 2018 edition, had reported about Kailash Avhad, an RTI applicant from Thane, being hit repeatedly by a deputy commissioner of police (DCP — Traffic) on the day of the first appeal hearing. According to the applicant, the DCP, who was in the capacity of first appellate authority, was angry with the kind of information he had sought. The Thane DCP was stripped off his power to hear cases under first appeal as first appellate authority, after the State Information Commission got to know about the issue during the second appeal hearing. The Commission, for the first time, also directed that the DCP should not be allowed to take any further first appeals till he is found not guilty, after ordering an enquiry. Kailash Avhad, the RTI applicant, who was hit by the DCP, said: “I am not aware of any such circular, but the police tends to shield its own people. They should also provide information.”

2018-04-15Monks in Thane generate power from biogas - Hindustan Times
Monks in Thane generate power from biogas MUMBAI Updated: Apr 15, 2018 23:58 IST Making the best use of nature, monks living at the Shree Ma Anandamayi Ashram in Thane recently setup a biogas plant with solar panels to help produce electricity on the seven-acre plot. The monks, who also run a school by the same name, believe in recycling everything that nature has to provide them. Apart from the biogas plant, 50 solar panels of 100 watt each have also been installed. The ashram includes vermicomposting pits, a raised vegetable gardening bed and rainwater harvesting, on which, they have been working for past few years. “Our master believes in not wasting a single leaf, which is why we have 32 vermicomposting pits in our backyard. The compost we get from these pits is used as a fertiliser in the garden, and we use cow’s urine as an insecticide,” said Rayan Iyengar, general secretary of the trust. On a daily basis, around 100 kg of wet-waste from ashram and school is generated, and all garden waste is fed into bio-digester. The slurry available from the plant is then used as a fertilizer, whereas the biogas generated from the decomposition of slurry is collected in a balloon, and converted into electricity. The entire process takes around 40 days, after which, around three to four units of electricity is generated each day. At present, fans in three halls of the ashram work on electricity generated through biogas. “Apart from the environmental benefits, the entire system acts as an educational tool for our students through which, we teach them about how similar environmental friendly measures can be replicated in their homes and society,” said Balgopal, president and chairman of the trust. Iyengar said that with the solar panel setup, they will be able to generate around five kilowatts of electricity out of their requirement of eight kilowatts. He said that ever since they had started vermicomposting, they only purchase around three to four tonnes of compost and fertilisers from outside, as compared to 18-19 tonnes earlier. The rainwater is used to replenish 20,000 sq ft of borewell, the water from which, is filtered and used in the school and ashram, said Balgopal. “The system set up here is a hybrid, wherein not only the waste is being used to make compost, but solar power and biogas is used to generate electricity. This is one of the few places in the city where a hybrid system such as this has been installed,” said Harish Mistry, Indian Green Building council accredited person (IGBCAP). Vikal Chaurasia, who runs a company called Urja Setu, said, “Not many people are aware that biogas can be used for generating electricity. The unit setup at the ashram will act as a precedent for other such initiatives.”

2018-04-15Traffic outside Thane station irks commuters - The Indian Express
Traffic outside Thane station irks commuters While traffic police try to manage the situation, the auto drivers always find a blind spot, residents say. Published: April 16, 2018 1:56:36 am When 32-year-old Rashmi Shah booked an Uber at Thane station on April 12, she had no idea of the trouble she was going to get into. “When my Uber reached the private vehicle lane, some cab drivers started creating a ruckus. They even tried to damage the car,” she recalled. What Shah faced is not a one-off incident. While the encroachers from Thane station have been removed, congestion in the area has not come down. Thane residents coming out of the station generally rue the traffic situation. “Just last week, I had to wait for over an hour to get an auto, as no one was willing to go. Either they quote a price way above the metre or simply refuse to go,” said Rajesh Khernar, a resident of Rabodi. While traffic police try to manage the situation, the auto drivers always find a blind spot, residents say. “The traffic police are located near the exit, but all the autorickshaws stand at the entrance to the station. They don’t even come to the meter stand, as then they will have to take even short distance rides,” said Ajay Kumar, a resident of Majiwada. Private vehicle owners are facing issues too. “The extreme right lane is for private vehicles, but even that’s taken up by cabs and some auto drivers. If we stand for even five minutes to unload our luggage, they create a ruckus, while they just stay parked through the day,” said Trupti Dhore, a resident of Brahmand. While the traffic police have taken proactive measures since the encroachers were removed, they haven’t been much. “We are working on barricading all entry and exit points, so that there are lanes demarcated for private cars and autorickshaws. I will conduct test drives with Ola and Uber and if it is true that they are being harassed, I will ensure that one lane is dedicated just for these taxi services,” said Thane DCP (Traffic) Amit Kale. But according to DCP Kale, there have been few complaints. “We have a helpline number and even online complaint registration. If anyone complains, we make sure that traffic beat marshals reach the spot and immediately take action,” he said, adding, “If people come forward and report such issues, I assure that we will come up with solutions to help them while also working with the auto drivers to ensure a win-win situation for everyone.”

Maharashtra man tries to sell ex-spouse's plot; fakes sign, uses wife pic | TNN | Updated: Apr 16, 2018, 09:01 IST THANE A Thane resident has been arrested for allegedly cheating three banks and an insurance company of lakhs by fabricating records of his first wife from whom he is now divorced. The police said that the accused, Bijay Gaud (49) forged his first wife's signature and used the photo of his second wife on documents to access the funds. Gaud divorced his wife in 2016. Soon after the divorce, he opened three new bank accounts in his former wife's name, by forging her signature but used the photographs of his second wife to open these accounts. He then struck a sale deed of some property and took a token amount and he also encashed an insurance policy which had matured, both of which were in his first wife's name. Gaud had the physical documents for both-the property and the insurance policy-although they were in his first wife's name. "In this manner, he made Rs 20 lakhwithout his first wife knowing anything about it," said a police officer. "The proceeds for both were credited to the new account he had opened with his new wife." The fraud came to light in January when his first wife learnt that the property sale deal was negotiated. "She found out that the proceeds had been credited to a bank account in her name-an account she was not even aware of," said the officer. That's when Gaud's first wife lodged a complaint at Naupada police station. The bank account led the police to Gaud. His second wife is absconding, said the police. "Things will be clear once she is held," said an officer.

Thane Municipal Corporation to act tough on societies that violate garbage mgmt Apr 14, 2018 08:38 am Thane: It has been a while since Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has undertaken waste segregation awareness drive. Despite this awareness only 10 per cent of housing societies have shown the interest waste sgregation and garbage management. Majority of 90 per cent societies in Thane have not even bothered to be a part of this ambitious project and even gone ahead to warn TMC they will not pay their taxes. The Corporation has now decided to serve these societies with notices saying they will face legal action. “The Corporation has already sent the notices to more than 1000 societies, the malls, societies,and hospitals that produce more than 100 tonnes of garbage every day, and those societies that have the area more than 5000 square feet,” said a civic official. As per the solid waste management act 2016, the corporation can file the criminal offence against the societies. TMC officials feel once, the legal action is initiated, the societies might come forward to initiate the project. There is still a situation of confusion in the societies about the process of garbage management, whereas, still some societies are awaiting for the corporation to employ an NGO that will train the residents and will initiate the project. The societies that are actively involved in the process since many years, are successfully implementing the projects. Some of the societies claim they had no knowledge about the project and hence have shown no interest in composting and segregation of waste. TMC undertook awareness drive with messages on hoardings, wall posters, banners and distributed leaflets in Thane societies. A unique exhibition on solid waste management and garbage composting was held in Thane. In between, TMC had refused to get the garbage picked from societies to teach them a lesson. Yet, societies did not come forward to take any initiative, later they were given a deadline till March end to initiate the project. Only 8 to 10 percent of societies showed the interest and took the initiative. Civic officials say they have extended the deadline but with warning of legal action. “Thane housing societies claim there is confusion about the companies that offer such service. Hence we will wait till May. And this time we have issued notices on a strict note, warning societies if the orders are not followed, they will face legal action,” warned a TMC officer.

2018-04-14JICA delegates check on bullet train land acquisition status - Times of India
JICA delegates check on bullet train land acquisition status Apr 14, 2018, 22:28 IST Thane: A japanese delegation that has provided financial aid and is consultant for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train via Thane visited the district collectorate on Thursday to inquire about the progress on the project. The project hit a road block in Thane after locals in nine predominantly Aagri villages showed resistance to part with the 18-hectare land required for laying the tracks for the bullet train. “A team of seven delegates from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) called on us to get a ground report on the project. We told them that the villagers have been issued the notice about the high speed railway tracks to be put on their lands. Once the locals give their consent we will start with the measurement and acquisition process,’’ said senior revenue department official. The delegation visited Sudam Pardeshi, sub-divisional officer at the district collectorate and later went to see the project area. The district administration is believed to have made two futile attempts to persuade natives of Savli, Ghansoli, Shil, Dawale, Padle, Desai, Aagasan, Betwade and Mhatardi for the rail corridor. However, the Thane land measurement and acquisition process appears to have met with resistance from the locals. Thane will be a crucial link for the railway project, which will start at the Bandra-Kurla Complex, proceed towards Thane, Palghar, Vapi, Surat, Bharuch, Vadodra, Anand and conclude at Sabarmati station covering 508km. Travel time between the two cities is said to be one hour and 58 minutes with 12 stations proposed between the two. Of the total 508km of tracks to be laid down for the high speed train, about 155km-long tracks will be in Maharashtra. Mumbai suburban district will have 7km-long tracks, Thane district 40km track and the longest 108km run will be in Palghar district before it enters neighbouring Gujarat. “We had sent a team to these villages on March 6 to conduct a preliminary measurement of the land, but our staff met with stiff resistance. They are still not sure about the compensation package and if they will be paid as per the present ready reckoner rates for their lands. We have offered to give them Transferable Development Rights (TDR) against the land acquired for the project,’’ said Pardeshi. These landowners in Thane are even demanding employment for their children, it is learnt.

They will have to co-ordinate with the local corporators and residents.” Civic officials said that they will be roping in Mumbai-based Misaal foundation and city-based Rotary Club. Also, local artists, students from J J School of Arts will be approached to give their creative inputs. “We have not yet decided on the colour coding and colour schemes. But, we are thinking of colours that would complement and camouflage well with respect to the particular surrounding. For instance, if the place is in close proximity to a lake then we will use blue. Even the slum dwellers could give suggestions in this aspect. We will be devising a proper protocol and theme. Once all this is decided, work will begin in 15 to 20 days,” said Chavan. It is said the idea came to mind when the municipal commissioner was traveling in a local train from Thane to Diva and was disappointed to see the condition of the shanties in Parsik Nagar. “Although the exact cost of the project has not been determine yet, we feel it would bring about a good change in the scenery for commuters and will also uplift the slum dwellers and encourage them to keep their premises clean,” said a civic official. Civic officials said that they will be roping in Mumbai-based Misaal foundation and city-based Rotary Club. Also, local artists, students from J J School of Arts will be approached to give their creative inputs. The colour coding and colour schemes have still not been decided.

Thaneites soak in the festive spirit over the weekend | TNN | Apr 15, 2018, 00:04 IST THANE: The lake city has been buzzing with festivites this weekend. While some payed tribute to god and thanking him for the bountiful nature, many will also be ringing in their New Year. The Asamese harvest festival Rongali Bihu and Punjabi’s Baisakhi was observed on Saturday, while the south Indian community will come together on Sunday to welcome their New Year with a puja, followed by an assortment of traditional culinary dishes. Raaman Khurana of Global Punjabi Association in Thane said, “For us, Baisakhi is an opportunity to bring people of the community together and host events. The occasion is important as it was on this day that our 10th Guru—Guru Gobind Singh— laid down the foundation for the order of the Khalsa Panth, which is the order of pure ones. In Punjab, farmers perform rituals to thank the lord for a good Rabi crop.” Some local associations involved youngsters to plan and participate in the celebrations. General secretary of the Assam association in Mumbai, Deepankar Borgohain said, “From 3-year-olds to 70 years and above, everyone took part in group dance and other cutural activities. On the second day of the seven-day Bihu festival, we perform the Bihu dance in every household. It is our way of wishing each other a good year. To honour the god, we even take our cattle for a wash. Then a curry is made using 101 vegetables is prepared and everyone is dressed in new clothes.” Be it a harvest festival or the beginning of a New Year, everyone is gripped with festivities, turning the lake city into a multi-cultural hub. A resident of Pokhran Road 1, Gokila Ramesh, said, “For us, Vishu is a festival which marks the first day of the New Year. A puja of lord Krishna is performed at midnightafter which kani is set up. The kani includes all types of fruits out of which mango, lemon, orange and cucumber are a must. Besides fruits, gold ornaments and money of all denomination is kept. Everyone gets up at 4am the next day. It is a custom to be followed by every family member to visit the kani with a blind fold. First the head of the family can see, then the rest.”

2018-04-14New age couples: Just you and I, no kids - Times of India
New age couples: Just you and I, no kids | TNN | Apr 15, 2018, 00:01 IST THANE: Ekta and Satish Shah (name changed) were sipping their drinks while they were having a little chat with their friends, who were busy running after their two-year-old making sure he does not eat anything fallen on the floor. Looking at the child and his parents running around the house, the couple looked at each other and decided in unison to not have a child. This decision seems to have become common among a number of couples and the Shahs are no exception, as the community of the Double Income No Kids (dink) couples is growing. The most common reason that the couples stated is that their office timings are so unusual that they may find it difficult to handle an added responsibility of having a child and will not even be able to give the child time. “Working in an IT sector, though I have a log in time at work, I’m not sure about when I will be able to return home and same is the case with my husband as he is in the creative field and has to stay till late at work till his project gets completed. Whatever little free time we get we wish to spend it with each other as it has just been a year since we got married. So in this scenario if we have a child it would be unfair on him or her as we will not be around to nurture the kid, and it does not make sense to keep them with their grandparents, at a crèche or with a nanny. Also, earlier it was easier for couples to have children as they used to get married early, but now people are getting married late and are not even settled in time to have a child,” said 30-year-old Ekta. Not only has the factor of time played a role for this decision, but also the fact that everything has become expensive. The couples claim that the only goal in their lives is not to get married and have children, but other priorities too are important. Many are ambitious and do not want to give up on luxuries of life. Some even stated that they don’t wish their child to be a part of the depressing world wherein crimes and cruelty have increased, global warming has reached a different level, etc. “The job scenario has changed and very few have a permanent job. My wife and I are doctors and we do not get a fixed amount of money every month. Our financial condition keeps fluctuating. At this point it will prove to be a very expensive affair to have a child. Also, since we finished our studies late we are now able to do things that we wanted. The other most important reason is that the world has become a horrible place to live in and we don’t want our child to be born in this cruel world,” said 31-year-old dentist Dr Archit Ghangurde.

CDR: Lawyer says police conducting media trial | TNN | Apr 15, 2018, 03:10 IST THANE: Celebrity lawyer Rizwan Siddique has refuted the allegations of Thane police about his role in the illegal procurement of call data records (CDR) for Ayesha Shroff. Siddique said his role in the Ayesha Shroff case was limited to only filing two FIRs. Siddique, who was arrested by the crime branch, was released after the high court rapped Thane crime branch and held the police had acted in a "high-handed" manner and had failed to follow "due process of law". The high court had directed senior officials of the Thane police and the state home department to carry out a departmental enquiry. But the crime branch challenged the high court order in apex court, which stayed the departmental inquiry against the police officer and asked him to file his reply matter within four weeks. Subsequently, the crime branch, earlier this week claimed they had taken down the statement of Ayesha Shroff. Siddique's name cropped up again, reportedly for procuring the CDR of another Bollywood actor, Sahil Khan. Siddique told TOI the police were trying to fabricate a case against him and conduct a media trial. "I was not representing Ayesha Shroff in the bail applications filed before the court as the same were not in my area of practice. All allegations levied in the media against me personally, which concern any alleged CDR of Sahil Khan, is absolutely false and baseless. and the Crime Branch's only motive is to intentionally conduct a trial by media through speculation and rumours and to damage my reputation," said Siddique. When contacted, crime branch officials refused to comment on Siddique's allegations.

Wagle Estate police said the incident took place at around 7.30 p.m. at Waldas Apartments in Raghunath Nagar. The police said that the residents of the housing society were shocked to witness a woman in flames running out of her house. Neighbours rushed the woman to hospital, where she told the police in a statement that her husband and mother-in-law had set her on fire in front of her 10-year-old daughter. The police said the victim, Daksha, had been married to Ashok Mange (33) for 12 years and the couple had frequent arguments. Ashok’s mother, Jamuna Ben, also often got into quarrels with Daksha. Senior Police Inspector Ravikant Malekar said that three months ago, Ashok and Jamuna Ben drove Daksha and their daughter, Disha, out of the house. Daksha then took Disha to her parents’ home and started living there. Neighbours rush to help Mr. Malekar said, “As Disha’s school was going to reopen, Daksha went along with her to Ashok’s residence on Friday evening to collect a few certificates. An argument soon broke out between Ashok and Daksha. Then Jamuna Ben and Ashok in a fit of rage poured kerosene on Daksha and set her on fire.” The police said that Daksha was engulfed in flames and ran out of the house screaming for help. Disha also began crying for help. The commotion attracted the attention of neighbours who doused the fire and rushed Daksha to a nearby hospital. Wagle Estate police were informed about the incident and they sent a team to the hospital. Mr. Malekar said, “Daksha has sustained 80% burns and is in a serious condition. She managed to give a statement in which she recounted the incident. Based on her statement, we arrested Ashok and Jamuna Ben late on Friday night.” He added, “We have charged them with attempt to murder and cruelty by husband or in-laws under the Indian Penal Code. They were produced in court on Saturday and have been remanded in police custody till April 17.” Officers said that the neighbours in their statements said that there used to be frequent arguments in the Mange family, and they intervened many times to prevent violence.

2018-04-14Regret about having no child at times too late - Times of India
Regret about having no child at times too late | TNN | Apr 15, 2018, 00:03 IST THANE: While on the one hand, Double Income No Kids (dink) couples decide against having children for whatever reasons, there are some who regret their decision because by the time they make up their mind to have one, it often becomes impossible owing to the biological clock. Neha Desai (name changed), 37, was being counselled after she was informed by her gynaecologist that it will be difficult for her to conceive. Six years ago, she decided not to have a child. Mental health experts claimed that like Desai, there are other patients who suffer from anxiety or go into depression and start doubting themselves when, after a few years, they wish to have a child, but their body does not support their decision. “There is a niche group of dink couples who visit us only if either the couple has disputes over the decision of having a child or when they are going through stress as they are unable to conceive later when they want. Also, it is not true that everyone who takes this decision regrets it. As the society is changing, the definition of happiness also differs from person to person. For a couple it is no more just about having a family but to do much more with their lives. People now in general have become self-centred and feel that they will not be able to handle the responsibility of having a child. It is even seen that some people change their decision when they get older as people in general change in time, so later they want a child but are unable to have it. They then suffer from mental illnesses like suffer from stress, anxiety, go into depression, blame themselves for the decisions they had taken earlier etc.,” said Dr Aditi Acharya, psychiatrist and marriage counsellor. Gynaecologists also confirmed that they have been seeing many couples who are conceiving post 35, as earlier in their lives they want to remain focused on their careers. “Earlier people used to get married at an early age due to which they used to have children early but now as the marriages only take place late, people focus on their careers and later think about having kids. The problem that occurs when one tries to conceive at or after 35 is they have more chances of complications as they suffer from some or the other health problems like blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, etc. They then have to splurge a lot on various treatments to conceive. Then they become desperate to have a child and take a lot of stress which again becomes a problem to conceive,” said Dr Mahesh Bedekar, gynaecologist.

On the other hand, officials at the hospital claim that they have been carrying out many operations in the mini OT. “We have carried out over 185 operations since the main OT was shut.

2018-04-13Thane-Belapur road flyovers nearly ready, inauguration undecided - Hindustan Times
Thane-Belapur road flyovers nearly ready, inauguration undecided. Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) which is constructing the two flyovers and the subway at a cost of Rs155 crore, has said that finishing touches are being given to the projects. MUMBAI Updated: Apr 14, 2018 00:42 IST Although the work on the delayed flyovers and a subway on the Thane-Belapur Road is slated to be complete by April, there continues to be a question mark on when motorists will finally get to use them. Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) which is constructing the two flyovers and the subway at a cost of Rs155 crore, has said that finishing touches are being given to the projects. The flyovers are expected to provide a big relief to motorists who face daily traffic jam on the busy road which has only compounded with the construction work. MMRDA public relations officer, Dilip Kawathkar, said, “The work on the projects on the Thane-Belapur Road will be completed by the end of April.” However, when asked about the inauguration, Kawathkar said, “I cannot say when the inauguration will be done.” Nitin Kandhari, 50, a social worker, said, “Very often, projects are ready but are delayed due to unavailability of the chief guest or a dignitary. Hopefully, the flyovers will be thrown open unofficially as had happened in case of the Mahape-Shil Phata flyover constructed by MMRDA and the Seawoods flyover.” WHY DO WE NEED THE FLYOVERS? Work on the 15-km Thane-Belapur Road started in 2006 and was completed in 2008. At the time, around 25,000 vehicles used the road on a daily. The number of vehicles has now reached around 1 lakh every day. The road has been swamped with regular traffic snarls as there is an industrial area on one side and a residential colony on the other. Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) had requested MMRDA to construct the two flyovers on the road at Ghansoli-Talavi and at Pawane-Savita Chemical junction along with an underpass at Mahape junction. Sanjeev Gupta, 45, a resident of Kopar Khairane, said, “We have long suffered first thanks to the increased traffic and then because of the on-going construction work. The flyovers will ensure faster connectivity to Thane. I can’t wait to drive on them.” After the flyovers are opened, one can have a smooth drive. Mahesh Lal, 46, a resident of Vashi, said, “The flyovers will ensure that we do not have to stop at the various signals. Traffic towards MIDC can go below the flyover and those wanting to go to Thane will not have to stop anywhere.” MMRDA public relations officer, Dilip Kawathkar, said, “The work on the projects on the Thane-Belapur Road will be completed by the end of April.” However, when asked about the inauguration, Kawathkar said, “I cannot say when the inauguration will be done.” Nitin Kandhari, 50, a social worker, said, “Very often, projects are ready but are delayed due to unavailability of the chief guest or a dignitary.

2018-04-12Thane's civic hospitals soon to don a digital look - Free Press Journal
Thane’s civic hospitals soon to don a digital look Apr 12, 2018 09:25 am Thane: Thane’s biggest civic hospital will soon don a digital look as the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has planned to implement ‘Hospital Information Management System’ project which will cost around Rs 14 crore. The digital hospital will have a complete medical history of patients as well as the record of students studying at its medical college. Thane has two public hospitals – the civil hospital run by State Government and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj or Kalwa Hospital run by TMC. Kalwa Hospital witnesses long queues wherein patients come here from distant places for minor or major ailments, who most of the times are seen carrying case paper files. As per the new ‘digital system’ this scenario will soon change, relieving patients of their ordeal. Since these procedures take too much time the TMC has decided to initiate this project. Patients will now be handed over a card which will have a medical history of the patient, personal information of the patient will be registered, so that in his/her next visit the patient will just have to mention his name and will get the access in the hospital and can go to the particular department for the treatment. “There are three things included in this system. One is hospital information management system, second is student life-cycle management system and picture archiving and communication system. The patient will receive a card and through that card, doctors will be able to get the medical history of the patient. This is concept is truly time-saving,” informed the civic official of TMC. The Kalwa hospital is also a college for medical students and through the student life-cycle management system, they will be tracked. Through picture archiving, the medical reports can easily be transferred and will be easier to handle various cases. The hospital information management system will be implemented at a cost of Rs 14 crore which will ensure the administration also update about the health patterns of residents on a real-time basis and detect any possible epidemic outbreak in the city. As per the plans, every patient visiting any of the 13 departments at the hospital will be equipped with a smart card that will summarise his medical history with a record of all ailments and prescriptions. Every time, the patient visits any of the OPDs or consultancy, he will have to present the card that will be scanned on a special reader that will reflect all details of medicines taken earlier, any existing allergies, etc. The ttending doctor will read his history and accordingly suggest medicines and therapy to the patient. Features of Hospital Information Management System Provide unique patient identity card All medical record of the patient fed in his file, so that he/she need not have to prepare case papers Single source of access to patient history for doctors, patients Patients can access these records through pen drives, emails Laboratory information can be entered on the system Radiology info synched with patient’s medical record Nursing/ Ward information Pharmacy management Blood Bank management

2018-04-12Thane: This summer vacation, kids can get a feel of an 'open school' - Times of India
Thane: This summer vacation, kids can get a feel of an ‘open school’ | TNN | Apr 13, 2018, 00:49 IST THANE: In a bid to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge and improve analytical thinking among children, city-based science and education organization, Jidnyasa Trust, will be launching a one-of-its-kind summer school program for children. From introducing them to an array of outdoor sports, creative and scientific activities to organizing study tours around the lake city and conducting open discussions with experts from various fields, the four-week long program promises to answer all sorts of queries posed by children. Experts would be roped in and students will have to study on their own, come to class the next day and discuss concepts and difficulties with their mentors. Founder of the trust, Surendra Dighe said, “I believe children are the most curious of all human beings. But sadly, they are unable to express themselves in our syllabus-oriented education system. So, we decided to launch an ‘open school’ program. There are four parts to this process. The morning session will be like a study tour around the city understanding the types of trees, different lakes, heritage sites and more. Then we have the self-study session where experts from all fields will come. Students can read up on stuff they like and pose questions. In the afternoon and evening we will have creative and sports activities lined up for them. It is entirely up to the student to decide which activities to take part in. The child is welcome to attend self-study sessions only on topics that interest him or her.” With as many as 16 registrations being done till now, even parents seem to be excited about this novel concept. Gauri Panshikar, a resident of Louiswadi who has enrolled her son for the program, said, “Rather than memorizing chapters, equations and concepts just for the sake of passing an exam, I would prefer if my child would learn things in a deeper sense. This way he can even get a different perspective and his opinions wouldn’t be influenced by anyone. I believe there is no single way of attaining knowledge. I want my son to find his own way and come to conclusions.” Starting from Monday, the free-of-cost four week long program will be opened at Saraswati school in Naupada for kids in the age group of 8-15.

Thane: Final RTE seat confirmation deadline today | TNN | Apr 13, 2018, 00:43 IST THANE: Even as over 65 per cent of selected Right to Education (RTE) applicants in the city have managed to claim their seats in their preferred schools by April 10, the rest have another day to do so as the education board has pushed the deadline again till April 13. “The first two times the last dates were postponed because the parents of RTE students pleaded with the education department to do so as they had some trouble finding time out of daily routines to visit the school.

Car registration in Thane at an all-time high last fiscal | TNN | Apr 13, 2018, 00:42 IST THANE: Car registration has touched an all-time high with 18 per cent last fiscal compared to 2016-17 at the Thane Regional Transport Office (RTO) that covers Thane, Bhiwandi and Bhayander jurisdictions. Based on the records at the Thane RTO, registration of private cars, which was 16,156 in 2014-15, increased by over 20 per cent as the sales were around 19,499 in 2017-18. The officials have attributed this rise to poor public transport and easy loan availability, with interest rates ranging between 8.25 per cent and 10.5 per cent, and most bankers offering to waive off the loan processing charges. “As compared to the earlier times it is now easier to purchase a new vehicle as people easily get loans with minimal down payment. Also, one need not go to the bank as either the staff from the bank comes home or the same can be done online. Another reason for many opting to get their own vehicle is because the frequency of public transport is poor. People do no wish to wait for a bus for longer or go in the crowd. They instead prefer taking their cars to their destination,” said Nandkishor Naik, deputy RTO,Thane. Citizens even continued to buy bikes or scooters as they are easier to manoeuvre, said experts. Also, a rise of around 25 per cent was seen against the registration of two-wheelers in 2017-18 as compared to 2014-15. It was seen that out of the 82,999 two-wheelers registered in 2017-18, around 11 per cent were motorcycles. “Everyone aspires to own a vehicle, which is a psychological behaviour and two-wheelers are pocket-friendly as compared to cars. Most of the youngsters prefer taking a two-wheeler as it becomes convenient for them to go to another city and they do not even have to pay the toll. Also, as compared to public transport it becomes easier to travel by a bike or scooter as it turns out to be cheaper,” said Sulakshana Mahajan, transport expert.

2018-04-10Thane-Mumbra bypass route to close down for 2 months - Times of India
Thane-Mumbra bypass route to close down for 2 months Apr 10, 2018, 13.30 IST Passengers travelling to and fro Mumbai by road will have to avoid the Thane-Mumbra bypass route for the coming months due to the maintenance work taken up by the Public Works Department. Reportedly, vehicular movement will be barred on the Thane-Mumbra bypass route from April 16 onwards for a period of 60 days. Consequently, the passengers and vehicular owners travelling from Mumbai to Thane, Kalyan and Dombivali, and vice-versa will have to put up for the civic discomfort and traffic burden for 2 months. According to news reports, the cause behind the repair work is the potholes that have appeared on the Thane-Mumbra bypass road, which are hazardous for vehicular movement. The road is also linked to a poorly-maintained bridge which is all the more dangerous. Therefore, the PWD authorities will now be getting on job to spruce up the bridge as well as the road. While the repair work is on, the vehicles coming from Thane will be re-directed to Airoli-Eastern Expressway, and they can take the road from Shilfata to Kalyan and Bhiwandi. Also, passengers travelling in four wheelers, three wheelers and two-wheelers will have to take the old Mumbra village route to get to Thane. In addition, heavy vehicles like trucks and lorries, which are debarred from travelling during the day, will get parking space at Navi Mumbai’s CIDCO and Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation truck terminal for a limited period of time.

2018-04-10CDR case: Supreme Court stays action against Thane cops - Free Press Journal
CDR case: Supreme Court stays action against Thane cops Apr 10, 2018 09:22 am Mumbai: The Supreme Court on Monday stayed the Bombay High Court judgment ordering a departmental action against Thane police officials involving a probe against advocate Rizwan Siddiqui, who was accused of illegally possessing call detail records (CDRs) of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife Anjali. A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice AM Khanwilkar, however, issued a notice to lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui and asked him to file his reply in the matter within four weeks. Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi and advocate Nishant Katneshwar appeared for the State government and sought a stay of the Bombay High Court order of March 21 in which it had held that in arresting advocate Rizwan Siddiquee, the Thane police had acted in a “high-handed” manner and failed to follow “due process of law”. Advocate CA Sundaram appeared for Rizwan Siddiqui. The Thane police challenged the High Court order whether the impugned order is against the law laid down by the court in case of Saurabh Kumar vs Jailor, Koneila Jail; whether the High Court has erred in disposing off the writ petition without affording sufficient opportunity to the petitioners to put forth their case; whether the impugned order is not according to law for want of any condition and whether the High Court has considered the consequences on the morale of the police force while passing the impugned order. According to Abhishek Trimukhe, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Thane Crime Branch, “We have challenged the High Court order. The Supreme Court has given four weeks to advocate Rizwan Siddiqui to file a say in the form of an affidavit. The next hearing is on July 2.” In March, a Special Leave Petition was filed before the High Court by Rizwan’s wife Tasneem under Article 136 of the Constitution of India challenging the final judgment and order date passed by the High Court of Judicature at Bombay in Writ Petition No 1353 of 2018, whereby the High Court disposed of the writ petition that the police had grossly abused the powers granted to them and misused their powers with the sole aim and intention to cause excessive mental torture, trauma and harassment to advocate Rizwan is absolutely illegal and unlawful and has not been backed up by any provision of the law, which makes it prima facie apparent that the respondents are acting with malafide intentions and ulterior motives for reasons best known to them.

Father of Madhurika, Suhas Patkar, a resident of Vasant Lawns, said, “Ever since the age of six, Madhurika was into extra-curricular activities like swimming and dance. Impressed with her swimming, we realized that she could have potential in indoor sports too, as her stamina was great. Then a friend of mine suggested we send her for table tennis classes. She learnt the basics there. This was the starting point of her career as she never looked back after this. Her leg movements in dance and swimming helped her in table tennis.” After years of hard work, months of perfecting a particular stroke, attending innumerable training camps across the globe from Poland, Germany, Hungary, to Patiala the starlets were finally chosen as the coveted five to represent India. “Every day I would see Madhurika practising for six hours and also following a strict protein diet, coupled with gym, yoga and meditation. In 2010 as well, she had the honour of getting selected for the Common Wealth games where she bagged a silver medal,” added her father. From competing in inter-school games and then jumping onto the district, state, national and the international platform, Madhurika, who turned 30 on Tuesday, has set her target at the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics.

2018-04-10Statements of 5 'activists who misused RTI' recorded - Times of India
Statements of 5 ‘activists who misused RTI’ recorded | TNN | Apr 11, 2018, 02:05 IST THANE: The Thane anti-extortion cell has taken statements of five Right to Information (RTI) ‘activists’ suspected to be repeatedly misusing the RTI Act for personal gains and alleged blackmailing. The police have asked the five in detail about the RTIs they have filed. After carrying out an internal probe, the Thane Municipal Corportion identified 10 such activists, mostly from political parties, who had filed RTI queries with the civic body. Police said that the names were shortlisted on the basis of repeated RTI filings. It would so happen that once the civic body would reach a stage of redressal of the complaints, these activists would withdraw the same. “Others have also been summoned and their statements will be recorded in the next few days,” said R V Kothmire, police inspector from the anti-extortion cell. The inquiry was conducted after a Shiv Sena MLA had raised the issue during the winter session. The state, in its reply, had said that an inquiry would be conducted and if anyone is found guilty, then appropriate action will be taken. Subsequently, the state government then ordered the Thane police to conduct an inquiry and police commissioner Param Bir Singh directed the anti extortion cell of the crime branch to carry out the probe. The cell, led by Pradeep Sharma, sought an internal inquiry report from the Thane Municipal Corporation. “The report contained 1,273 pages on the errant ‘activists’, who repeatedly sought information on development proposals,” said Sharma. He added that if the RTI activists had not done anything wrong they need not worry, but if they have, then there is definitely a reason to worry. The neighbouring Palghar police had filed 11 cases of extortion against 20 people, mostly political party officer-bearers, including Dhananjay Gawde, Shiv Sena corporator in the Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation, Govinda Gunjalkar, Vasai Nationalist Congress Party chief and Arun Singh, Bhartiya Janata Party youth wing general secretary of Palghar among others.

‘Amateur trekkers must take professional guides during a hike’ | TNN | Updated: Apr 11, 2018, 02:09 IST THANE: After eight teens from the lake city had lost their way for seven hours during a trek at Sanjay Gandhi National Park on Monday, many hiking clubs have advised amateur trekkers to take along professional guides with them. This is the second such incident in the city in the last six months. From carrying a first aid kit equipped with a Swiss knife, asthma inhalers and medicines, to stocking up on water and dry snacks and remembering emergency contact numbers (as they don’t require a network range), storing a contact number of a villager, adventure groups have advised nature lovers to take the necessary precautions. An adventure enthusiast who also conducts treks, Aarti Deodhar (22), said, “It is a very bad decision to just casually go about exploring the hills as we don’t know what could happen. If trekkers are going in groups, at least there should be one person in the team who has visited the place before. So, if people are unable to trace the routes, the rest of the members can depend on the person for help. If not, the group could approach villagers who are more than happy to show you around. The most important thing is to stick to the original path and not explore the untaken routes which are more often than not dangerous.” Some professional trekkers and nature trail organizers in the city also said that they make it a point for participants to connect with villagers in the area so that they can rescue trekkers if need be. “Before our trek begins, all participants are called for a session. We ensure that everyone knows the emergency contact numbers like fire brigade; police local disaster management unit. We also connect them to the villagers and share their contact numbers in case of an emergency,” said an adventure enthusiast. It is a bad decision to just casually go about exploring the hills as we don’t know what could happen.

2018-04-10Mumbra bypass to be shut for repairs, will lead to traffic jams - Times of India
Mumbra bypass to be shut for repairs, will lead to traffic jams TNN | Updated: Apr 11, 2018, 02:05 IST THANE: Motorists will have to brace for traffic congestion for the next two months as over 40,000 heavy vehicles will be diverted to the interior parts of Navi Mumbai and Thane city as the Mumbra bypass will be shut for repairs. The Public Works Department (PWD) will be undertaking repair work of the dilapidated Mumbra road overbridge which goes above the railway line. Work will begin from April 16. Druing this ime not only will the ROB be repaired, but maintenance work of the 3-km Mumbra bypass will also be carried out. “Mumbra bypass is the only link from JNPT to the western part of India as it is shorter route and easily accessible. Everyday almost 40,000 to 45,000 heavy vehicles use this road. So when this road will be shut, motorists will only have two other alternative roads to travel to and fro JNPT —they can go via Airoli and enter Thane or can take the Kalyan road towards Govindwadi bypass and enter Bhiwandi. But we are expecting many to take the Airoli route as it may be just 5km more but if they take the Govindwadi bypass road then they will travel around 10km more. So there will be more traffic congestion on the Kopri bottleneck. Even the road near Rabale police station will be affected as only one heavy vehicle can take a turn at one time. Also, if these vehicles come from Airoli then they will have to pay two tolls but we might give exemption on one,” said a senior traffic officer. The officials stated that the reason the work is being done in these two months is because the educational institutions will be shut and there won’t be school vans or buses along the road. Also, many would go out of town on vacation, so there will be less traffic in the interior parts of the city. Even in 2009 the Mumbra bypass was shut for almost four months as the concretisation work was being carried out. “We are going to put bearings and distressing on the bridge as only the upper part of the bridge is affected and the pillars as intact. This will help decrease the vibrations which one feels while travelling on the bridge. Also, the bypass has sharp turns due to which there have been many accidents wherein the vehicles have toppled. So, we will be placing stone barricades. Even the potholes on the bypass will be filled,” said an official from PWD.

Woman cop's suicide: Suspended ACP arrested in Thane Press Trust of India | Thane Last Updated at April 9, 2018 10:15 IST A suspended senior police officer was arrested for allegedly abetting the suicide of a 24-year- old woman constable in the district, the police said today. The accused, assistant commissioner of police Shamkumar Nipunge, surrendered before the Kalwa police last week after the Supreme Court rejected his pre-arrest bail in the case. He was placed under arrest on April 6 and later remanded in police custody, a senior official of the Thane police's Crime Branch said. Subhadra Pawar, a constable attached to the police headquarters in Thane Commissionerate, was allegedly found hanging from a ceiling fan of her flat in the Kalwa township here on September 6 last year, according to the police. No suicide note was recovered from the spot. Her brother, Sujit Pawar, had later filed a complaint against Nipunge and her sister's fiance Amol Paphale, a constable of the Mumbai police, of harassing and mentally torturing her, the official said. He alleged that his sister and her fiance had a quarrel on the day of the incident over Nipunge apparently making frequent calls to her, he said. Offences were subsequently registered against Nipunge, who was attached to the Thane police headquarters, and Paphale under IPC sections 306 (abetment of suicide) and 34 (common intention), the official said. Later, the ACP was suspended. Nipunge had initially moved the district court for the pre-arrest bail which was rejected. He then approached the Bombay High Court which granted him interim bail. However, apprehending arrest in the case, he later moved the Supreme Court which last week rejected his pre- arrest bail plea and directed him to surrender before the police, the official added.

2018-04-09Thane CDR case: SC stays Bombay HC order to initiate action against cops - Free Press Journal
Thane CDR case: SC stays Bombay HC order to initiate action against cops By PTI | Apr 09, 2018 12:20 pm New Delhi: The Supreme Court today stayed the Bombay High Court judgment ordering departmental action against Maharashtra policemen involved in a probe against a lawyer who was accused of illegally possessing call detail records (CDRs) of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife. A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice A M Khanwilkar, however, issued notice to lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui and asked him to file his reply in the matter within four weeks. Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi and advocate Nishant Katneshwar appeared for the state government and sought stay of the Bombay High Court order of March 21 in which it had held that in arresting Rizwan Siddiqui, the Thane Police had acted in a “highhanded” manner and had failed to follow “due process of law”. Advocate C A Sundaram appeared for Rizwan Siddiqui. The High Court had directed the Thane Police to release from their custody advocate Rizwan Siddiqui, who was arrested on March 16 for allegedly having ordered the illegal procurement of the CDR of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife. The HC had also directed the senior-most officials of the Thane Police and the state Home department to inquire into the actions of the Thane Police and if deemed fit, initiate appropriate punitive proceedings against the officials concerned. Rizwan Siddiqui’s wife, Tasneem, had challenged the manner of his arrest and filed a habeas corpus petition in the high court. In the plea, she claimed that her husband Rizwan Siddiqui had received a witness summon from the Thane Crime Branch Unit one on February 14. However, around 10 pm on March 16, Thane Crime Branch officials came to his office and while recording the statement, arrested him without giving him any notice under Section 41(A) of the CrPC to give him time to make an appearance before the police, the plea read. It alleged that the Thane police kept him in wrongful and illegal custody. The state, however, told the high court that the Thane Crime Branch had attempted to serve the 41(A) notice on Rizwan Siddiqui. But because he refused to accept it, he was arrested, the prosecution said. Section 41 (A) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) sets guidelines for a prosecuting agency to arrest a person without warrant. However, the court noted that while the notice was issued on March 15, asking Rizwan Siddiqui to appear before it on March 17 at 11 am, he was arrested before he could visit the police.

Shift to GST fuels rise in revenue in Thane region RTO TNN | Updated: Apr 10, 2018, 02:26 IST THANE: The move to GST and emergence of new growth centres in Thane, Navi Mumbai, Vasai and Kalyan seems to have fuelled the sale of automobiles as the collective revenue at these four RTO offices touched an all-time high of over 1,388 crore in the last fiscal. The registration of new vehicles and collection of taxes and fines by the transport frpartment in all four offices here saw the collective annual revenue target of the Thane region RTO exceed by over 24 crore. The revenue collected from these four RTOs was over Rs 1,388 crore on March 31, as against the target of Rs 1,364 crore set by the state transport department at the beginning of the last financial year. The rise in the RTO revenue charts has been largely attributed to the rush to buy cars, especially fleet cabs, and the improved sales of bikes and autos, following the abolition of Octroi, excise duty and VAT. “The growing demand for cars and bikes in Vasai and Kalyan has spiraled the registration at these two RTOs. The Kalyan RTO office caters to Dombivli, Ambernath, Titwala, Shahapur, while the Vasai RTO covers most of the talukas in Palghar district. These semi-urban centres are witnessing a rise in population which is evident by the rise in the number of vehicle registrations,’’ said a senior transport official. Regional transport officer of Thane Jitendra Patil said, “The growth in the annual income is due to the overall increase of 10% in the vehicle registration of two wheelers and four wheelers as compared to the previous fiscal. Consumers choose to purchase a new vehicle as they did not have to pay for the Octroi’’

2018-04-09TMC proposes door-to-door waste collection drive in budget - Times of India
TMC proposes door-to-door waste collection drive in budget | TNN | Updated: Apr 10, 2018, 02:28 IST THANE: The Thane Municipal Corporation has proposed a door-to-door segregated waste collection drive in their budget this year with an allocation of Rs 4 crore, wherein their solid waste management team will manually collect waste from each home, which is not accessible by the garbage vehicles. While the vehicles move into every lane in the city daily collecting wet and dry waste, many spots in the city, especially slum pockets have been left out of owing to narrow pathways. With no or limited access to this civic waste disposal system, citizens seem to have thus become habituated to throwing their kitchen waste as well as non-biodegradable waste in the small storm water drains as well as the nullahs abound their homes. In an attempt to stop this trend that has resulted in the choking of these sewerages, the Thane Municipal Corporation has now proposed a door-to-door waste collection initiative in their 2018-2019 budget. “As part of this initiative, we will have a team of solid waste collectors, who will individually visit 300 homes and collect segregated wet and dry waste in two separate handcarts, as the vans cannot fit through these areas. While they will transfer the wet waste to the ghanta gadis, they will sell the dry waste to old paper marts,” said Balaji Haldekar, medical officer at the civic solid waste management department. While the project is still in its proposal stage, the Thane Municipal Corporation has already started a physical survey to identify these homes that are not accessible by their garbage vehicles. “Our team has already begun surveying every nook and corner of the city and jotting down the names of the owner of the house, their house numbers, areas and so on so that we can compile a list, rope in groups of labourers, mahila bachat groups, etc and allocate a group of 300 houses to each applicant. We have allocated a budget of Rs 4 crore for this project,” added Haldekar. Environmentalist V Walavalkar said, “This is a feasible initiative given to local self-help groups. However, if this process is done on tendering basis like it is done for other civic projects, then it could politicised.”

The inquiry was initiated after advocate Rizwan Siddiqui, accused of illegally obtaining the call detail records (CDR) of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife, had alleged procedural lapses at the time of his arrest. Siddiqui was arrested from his house on March 16 and granted police custody on March 17. According to Thane police, the lawyer had allegedly procured the CDRs for his client from one of the private detectives earlier arrested by the Thane police. “He (Rizwan) had procured the CDRs of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife from one of our arrested accused. We have proof that he had procured multiple other CDRs too. He had been dealing with the detective for years, we have proof for that,” said an officer of the Thane Police.

A notice has also been issued to advocate Siddiqui to file his say. The court hasn’t specified a next date yet.” Thane Crime Branch is investigating the illegal obtaining and selling of several confidential CDRs.

Citizen groups take steps to make plastic ban a successCitizen groups take steps to make plastic ban a successAvani Ghangurde and Freny Fernandes | TNN | Apr 7, 2018, 22:07 ISTRepresentative ImageTHANE: At a time when most citizens are struggling to cope with the ban on plastic bags, some individuals have joined hands to spread awareness and speed up plastic disposals from all corners of the city. From organising plastic collection drives and converting the banned stock into bio-fuel, to sensitising people on the harmful effects of plastic, these citizen groups have been playing a proactive role in the plastic-free mission. Citizen activist and Thaneite, Dr Mahesh Bedekar has not only spent the past week approaching the local artist group. Swatwa, to create innovative posters on the plastic ban, but also reached out to the vendors in Gaondevi market and pressed them to transform their areas into zero-plasti c zones. “With the help of these artists, we made hundreds of posters in English and Marathi and displayed them in stores and elsewhere in the city. The messages in the posters are written by children thanking adults for advocating the ban of plastics. This sends a message to the young ones to be conscious about the environment. We spoke to the vendors at Gaondevi market and will be providing them cloth bags free of cost. This is the first step in our attempt to make Goandevi market a plastic free premise. If this works, we will be reaching out to Jambli market,” Dr Bedekar said. While a few like Dr Bedekar are playing their part in the movement by spreading awareness, others are actively participating in plastic collection and disposal drives organised in the city. “I heard about a plastic collection drive happening across Mumbai and Thane through a friend and decided to join it when it came to Thane this week. The collected plastic will be taken to a Pune-based company and converted into bio-fuel. While I had around half-a-kg of plastic at home, the group collected around 30 kgs in the two-hour span,” said Agnes Veigas, a Naupada resident.

2018-04-07Bail plea of 'matka king' rejected | Thane News - Times of India - Times of India
Bail plea of 'matka king' rejectedBail plea of 'matka king' rejectedTNN | Apr 7, 2018, 10:59 ISTTHANE: The special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court rejected the bail application of the alleged Matka king and financer of gangsters Chhota Shakeel arrested by the anti extortion cell in the infamous extortion case involving gangster Dawood Ibrahim’s brother Iqbal Kaskar. Special MCOCA judge AS Bhaisare rejected the plea stating that there is sufficient material against the accused to frame the charge. Pankaj Gangar, was arrested in September 2017 by Thane crime branch along with Kaskar well as two of his aides allegedly for financing the racket to purchase the weapons used in threatning the targets. Also, he is accused of funding the gang as well as sending money to Chhota Shakeel via hawala channel to Pakistan. A total of three cases were registered against Kaskar and MCOCA was invoked in one lodged at Kasarvadavali police station. Kaskar, Israr Sayyed, Gangar and Mumtaj Shaikh were arrested for threatening a prominent builder in Thane using Dawood’s name since 2013 and had managed to extort four flats from him. They sold three flats; Mumtaj was found living in the fourth, said a police officer. Gangar, presently in jail, moved the bail plea seeking relief. In his application, he stated that he has been falsely implicated in the case and arrested by the police for publicity and his name does not appear in the FIR. The legal team representing also pointed out that Gangar has not threatened anyone and has not received any kind of money neither any flat has been transferred in his name. Also there is no material against the competent authority to prove that fugitive gangster Chhota Shakil is their leader. The prosecution vehemently opposed the plea and stated that he is active members of the gangsters and does not deserve bail as the gang using name of underworld gangster Dawood Ibrahim had extorted money. After hearing both sides, the judge in his order noted, “From the say of police, it can be gathered that Gangar is active member of the organized crime syndicate headed by Chhota Shakil along with other arrested accused. The accused, on the say of absconding accused Chhota Shakil and accused Iqbal Ibrahim Kaskar, used to provide fund for purchasing firearms and weapons. So also, he had economically helped absconding accused Shami and Pappa Ansari and Guddu to threaten the complainant by visiting to his site.” “There is sufficient material against the applicant to frame the charge,” the judge said in his order and rejected the plea.

Thane farmers will lose 20 hectares for bullet train project Authorities assure stakeholders they won’t suffer any losses in the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project; farmers want four times the value of ready reckoner rates as compensation mumbai Updated: Apr 07, 2018 19:03 IST Megha Pol Hindustan Times The ambitious bullet train project of the central government is passing through nine villages in Thane district.(REPRESENTATIONAL PHOTO/HT FILE) More than 250 farmers from Thane district will lose a total of 20 hectares of their land — about twice the size of Oval Maidan — in the proposed Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Railway project, informed the Thane district collector office on Saturday. A meeting was held between these farmers, the collector and officials of the National High Speed Rail Corporation on Saturday in the district planning committee hall wherein the district authorities assured the farmers that they will not suffer any losses due to this project.The ambitious bullet train project of the central government is passing through several villages in Thane district. The farmers, especially from Diva, had registered their opposition to this project unless the state promises them adequate compensation. To address the fears of these farmers, a joint meeting was held.Aniruddha Ashtaputre, district information officer, said, “The train is passing through nine villages in Thane district. More than 250 farmers will lose a total of 20 hectares of their land in this project. The National High Speed Railway Corporation gave a presentation of the bullet train project to these farmers and the district collector has also assured that none of these farmers will face any losses. The project will be implemented by taking the villagers and farmers into confidence.”Ashtaputre said that the demands of these farmers were heard and authorities would find a positive solution for them.Sudam Pardeshi, sub-divisional officer of the district, said, “The land dealings for bullet train will be done on the lines of the land pooling system adopted for the Mumbai-Nagpur Expressway. The rates will be given as per the May 25, 2016 state government’s ruling. The farmers from the areas that come under the developmental plan of the corporation, will get additional compensation equal to the ready reckoner price of the land, so that farmers get twice the price of their land. The land dealings will be done by seeking permission of all those whose names are on the 7 by 12 extract of the land. The whole dealing will be transparent.”A collective land survey of these nine villages will be undertaken, the boundaries will be decided and later the distribution of the land will be established, Pardeshi said. The district has asked the villagers to cooperate with the surveyors. The farmers can also approach the administration to clear any doubt they have regarding compensation, Pardeshi said.The farmers, though, have demanded compensation equal to four times that of the ready reckoner rate.Rohidas Munde, president of Agasan village Bachao Sangharsh Samiti, said, “We have placed a few demands before the authorities in the meeting. We do not want them to compensate us only as per the ready reckoner rate, as this rate is very low in Diva. We want compensation four times that of ready reckoner rates. We have also demanded jobs for one member of every family that will lose their land in the bullet train project. We also want royalty or pension from the government as we will be losing our livelihood permanently. The authorities have agreed to think positively on these demands.”R P Singh, the project manager of National High Speed Rail Corporation, said, “Villages like Savli, Ghansoli, Shil Dawale, Padle, Desai, Betawade, Agasan and Mhatarde will be affected in the project. We will need 13.5 metres for laying of tracks and 4 metres for service road. Total 17.5 metres of area will be required for the project. We will also ensure that the access roads will not be affected while the buildings in the vicinity will be safe from the vibrations caused by the speed of this train.” tags BKC District Collector State government Service road bullet train project more from mumbai 2,500 women run for better health, for selfies with Milind Soman at Navi Mumbai Pinkathon Apr 07, 2018 15:24 IST Indrani Mukerjea admitted to JJ Hospital in Mumbai, condition stable Apr 07, 2018 15:30 IST Smashing the stereotype: Why we should stop believing myths about women and money Promotional Feature Read more Sensors to be installed at traffic signals in Thane to ease congestion, make travel smooth Fadnavis to inaugurate 20 projects in Thane on Saturday IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchiPune SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipFitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperinteractivesPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniStudymateEnglishmateHTsyndicationbridge schoolht brand studio Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.

Getting sporty: Parents, teachers devote more time to sports in schoolGetting sporty: Parents, teachers devote more time to sports in schoolAvani Ghangurde | TNN | Apr 7, 2018, 22:08 ISTRepresentative ImageTHANE: With schools now starting to focus more on physical education and highlighting the importance of sports, more parents seem to be encouraging their children to pursue various sports rather than merely concentrating on just plain academic excellence. On the occasion of international day of sports which was observed on April 6, TOI speaks about the changing notion of parents and teachers who have realized the value of sports and are incorporating it in the life of their kids/students. Be it for improving the all-round development of the child or only for maintaining their physical fitness, sports is not only been taken up as a co-curricular activity in schools, but is also now an integral part of the holistic approach to education. Principal of Billabong High International School, Kalyani Chaudhari, said, “Unlike before, schools have now started concentrating on sports and have made it a point to include it in their co-curricular activities. Because of this, the child may develop a liking to a particular sport. Sometimes, parents approach the school authority and tell us more about the child so we know where their interest is. Accordingly, we can encourage them towards special training.” Steering away from family pressure and the constant remarks by their friends, these groups of parents believe in maintaining a balance between sports and academics. Nandita Soman, a Thaneite whose 15-year-old daughter is a national-level gymnast said, “I believe this is the time a child is physically fit and should explore the world of sports if that is where the passion lies. My daughter was always interested in sports, since she was a kid. I think if parents support their children in whatever they do, they will be able to balance both- studies as well as their extra-curricular activity. Some parents would often ask me how I am letting my daughter play sports even during her class X exams, but I always told her to do her very best and be determined.” Get latest news & live updates on the go on your pc with News App. Download The Times of India news app for your device.

Tar adulteration racket busted after tanker driver heldTar adulteration racket busted after tanker driver heldNishikant KarlikarThe Thane crime branch has busted a tar adulteration racket following the arrest of a person assigned the job of transporting tar from a company to a site. | TNN | Apr 8, 2018, 03:28 ISTTHANE: The Thane crime branch has busted a tar adulteration racket following the arrest of a person assigned the job of transporting tar from a company to a site. The police said that the modus operandi was to mix high quality tar used in the making of roads with marble dust. The accused, Mukim Abdul Rehman of Sultanpur in Uttar Pradesh , was working for a local transporter and driving a tanker filled with tar, which was to be transported from the Hindustan Petroleum Private Limited (HPCL) located in Mahim to the Bitumen Drum Fill Plant at Wadpe in Bhiwandi. “Rehman, in connivance with other accused, was trapped by the crime branch sleuths on the alleged charges of adulterating tar used for surfacing with other powders and delivering the same to the consignee,” said the police. A tanker, adulterated tar and other material collectively worth Rs 19.97 lakh with the stock of tar itself costing around Rs 4.57 lakh were seized. “As assigned by the transporter, the driver took the tanker from Mahul and on the way removed two tonnes of tar valued at Rs 39,731 and sold it to some persons,” said Aviraj Kurhade, assistant inspector, crime branch. In order to compensate for the stock pilfered and to bring the tanker to the original weight, the driver and his cleaner filled the tanker again with white marble mixed power, added the police. The tanker was seized at a place near Parsik Naka, said Shrisail Chivadshetty, assistant inspector.

Thane gets first art gallery for artistes to unleash their creativity Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) on Saturday launched one-of-its-kind street art gallery in Thane mumbai Updated: Apr 08, 2018 00:58 IST Ankita G Menon Hindustan Times The gallery is adjacent to Singhania School, Pokhran Road number 1(HT/Photo by Praful Gangurde/ ) Residents, artists and students had together painted the walls of Pokhran Road number 1, more than a year ago. Impressed by their efforts, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) on Saturday launched one-of-its-kind street art gallery in Thane. The gallery is adjacent to Singhania School, Pokhran Road number 1 and is constructed on the lines of the Art Plaza at Kala Ghoda in Mumbai. It has a capacity to display 40 small art pieces. Art work worth Rs10,000 to Rs1.5 lakh have been displayed. The gallery does not block the passage for vehicles and of passers-by. Members of Thane Arts Guild supported TMC in this initiative, with eight artists coming together to present 25 art pieces at this gallery. The gallery was inaugurated by commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal on Saturday.“We had taken the initiative to decorate the walls with art. The positive response from residents prompted us to come up with the street art gallery. It not only beautifies the area but also provides a platform for artists. Based on the response and success of the initiative, we will continue with similar art-promoting activities,” added Jaiswal.Artists were glad to be a part of such an initiative.“This is a huge platform given to us, and will really help budding artists, as they can display their art work and not worry about getting a gallery at an exhibition. Artists wouldn’t have to worry about money,” said Kailash Anyan, an artist who displayed two of his art work.“Having this gallery right next to a school will ensure that the upcoming generations are also sensitised about the importance of art. Art is often known as a stress-buster and the presence of this gallery right on the footpath of a busy road will draw the attention of many passers-by,” said Dipika Rhoda, an artist who presented four of her art-work collection.“To increase the popularity of this art gallery, there should be activities involving locals,” suggested Jai Khare, another artist.Artists were concerned about the safety of these artworks. “As it is an open gallery, we hope the civic body ensures that the pieces of art are not damaged or stolen. Some of them are expensive,” said Kishore Nadavdekar, a state-award winner, whose work is also a part of the display.TMC civic chief said that provisions for CCTV cameras have been made at the gallery to ensure security. tags Kala Ghoda Mumbai TMC more from mumbai Two landmarks stand out amid bustling city of Navi Mumbai Apr 08, 2018 00:53 IST Now, personal presence not must for divorce by mutual consent Apr 08, 2018 00:52 IST Smashing the stereotype: Why we should stop believing myths about women and money Promotional Feature Read more RTE?quota: Students across Maharashtra get five days more to take admission Thane school library goes digital IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchiPune SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipFitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperinteractivesPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniStudymateEnglishmateHTsyndicationbridge schoolht brand studio Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.

Nagpur E-way: Thane, Vidarbha farmers use payout to live it upNagpur E-way: Thane, Vidarbha farmers use payout to live it upChittaranjan Tembhekar | TNN | Apr 6, 2018, 05:33 ISTRepresentative ImageMUMBAI: Most farmers in rural areas are using the compensation for land along the Mumbai-Nagpur highway on longterm investments, but their counterparts in urban areas like Thane, Nagpur and Ahmednagar seem to be using the money to splurge on jewellery, cars and new homes. An MSRDC survey of nearly 6,500 farmers who got a total compensation of Rs 3,500 crore suggests that over 70% of them have invested the money for their children’s education and have opened fixed deposits. Though 50% of farmers aspire to buy agricultural plots again, only 18% of these 6,500 farmers have actually re-invested in land so far. The findings show that in Ahmednagar, Thane and Nagpur, only 1- 4% of farmers are doing so. In many cases, the sudden prosperity has led to change in lifestyle. Baban Harne, coordinator of Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Highway Sangharsh Samiti, said a majority of the farmers in Kalyan, Bhiwandi and Shahapur have bought vehicles and gold and were building houses. “Only 5% of farmers who are educated are investing the money for longterm gains. In many cases the brokers who promised good compensation to tribal farmers have taken away 10% of the payout as commission. As per law, farmers should get a plot of around 20% of their land as compensation, but here farmers have been rendered landless," he said. Also the promise of compensation has given rise to property disputes, he said pointing out that in Shahapur alone 26 such cases have been filed with local magistrates. Around 45% farmers are making investments and buying JCB machines, dumper trucks, transport vehicles besides building house and buying land. "Most of these vehicles will be rented out to contractors of highway project," sources said. The survey suggested that nearly 10% farmers have invested in other than core agriculture businesses such as dairy, poultry farming, grocery shops etc. Get latest news & live updates on the go on your pc with News App. Download The Times of India news app for your device.

Thane school library goes digital In a first, a digital library was introduced in the school for students of all sections including junior college. cities Updated: Apr 07, 2018 00:45 IST Ankita G Menon Hindustan Times Students of BSM English School in Ghantali, Thane, will soon read books on tabs. (Praful Gangurde/HT) Students of the Brahman Shikshan Mandal English Medium School stepped into their library with excitement on Friday to witness the technological change. In a first, a digital library was introduced in the school for students of all sections including junior college. Thane district collector Mahendra Kalyankar was present along with the school’s trustee, staff and students, for the launch of the city’s first digital library.The authorities have made provisions for 11 tabs, but currently only eight are functional. A mix of technology, history, politics and travel-based books, in both fiction and non-fiction has been downloaded into these tabs.“The digital library has just started functioning. We need to make some more provisions and availability of tabs,” said Arya Dandekar, school librarian. The school will download more books in time, the school librarian said. “We will download more books and work towards improving the technology. Students can read the downloaded books whenever they want,” said Dandekar. “This is a one-of-a-kind initiative. I am glad that a school has taken the onus to reach out to students and ensure the reading habit continues,” said Kalyankar. “A digital library makes it easier for schools that lack space and can provide students with more options. This initiative will be well appreciated,” Kalyankar said. The school has lately been taking efforts to be technologically ahead and has introduced an app to share its notices and announcement, which reaches out to parents at the click of a button. tags School Librarian Thane school library Thane Arya Dandekar Mahendra Kalyankar more from cities Delhi sky to remain cloudy, Met predicts light rainfall in NCR Apr 07, 2018 10:27 IST Jailed Ukrainian model may have been used as ‘honeytrap’, cops to quiz ‘Indian friends’ Apr 07, 2018 09:48 IST Smashing the stereotype: Why we should stop believing myths about women and money Promotional Feature IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchiPune SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipFitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperinteractivesPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniStudymateEnglishmateHTsyndicationbridge schoolht brand studio Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.

Mumbai SHOCKER! Drunk husband molests wife onboard Thane-CST train - Watch horrific video Updated Apr 06, 2018 | 11:49 IST | Times Now Digital Police arrested the man, identified as Rafique Shaikh, at Dadar railway station |Photo Credit: ANI Mumbai: In a shocking incident, a woman was molested by her husband, who was in an inebriated condition, onboard a local train while travelling from Thane to Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station on Thursday night. The GRP (Government Railway Police) arrested the man, identified as one Rafique Shaikh, at Dadar railway station. The incident took place when the duo were travelling in the handicap compartment of the local train at around 11 pm. The accused drives a taxi to earn his living. A case has been registered.  One of the co-passengers shot the video of the incident in which a security personnel is seen standing in an adjoining compartment. Shockingly, he is not seen making much efforts to stop the man from beating his wife. One eye-witness, Samir Zaveri, said: "A man was cruelly beating a woman in the disabled compartment which I board at Thane. When the train started from Kurla, a man started assaulting the woman". "I being 90% disabled could not do much to help as there was a threat to my life if I intervened. I asked the security person, who was in the ladies compartment which is partially divided with disabled, to pull the emergency alarm but he did not respond," Mumbai Mirror quoted Zaveri as saying.   Police have filed a case of attempt to commit murder and molestation in this regard. The incident does not only raise serious concerns over the safety of female commuters in trains but also how people have been affected by the 'Mute Spectator Syndrome'. When the man kept on molesting his wife, none from the crowd came ahead to help the lady, displaying 'it's none of my business' attitude.

Thane tuition centre owner arrested over SSC paper leakMumbai Mirror | Updated: Apr 7, 2018, 05.14 AM ISTPrint this articleReduce font sizeIncrease font sizeMy Saved articlesWhatsappFacebookGoogle PlusTwitterEmailLinkedinSMSShareWhatsappFacebookGoogle PlusTwitterEmailLinkedinSMS By Asif Rizvi Amboli police investigating the SSC paper leak case on Friday arrested the owner of a Thane based private tuition centre for allegedly passing on leaked question papers to students enrolled at his coaching centre. Muneer Shaikh, 29, who runs a tuition centre in Ambernath, is the seventh person arrested in the case. According to the police, Shaikh received the question paper through WhatsApp from Atish Kadam, an English grammar teacher at Brilliant Classes run by prime accused Firoz Khan, 47. Shaikh has told police that he was supposed to pay Kadam for the leaked papers. “We suspect Shaikh shared the question paper with at least 40 students who were studying at his coaching centre. The papers were also leaked to 26 students studying at Brilliant – taking the total exposure to over 60,” said a police official. Meanwhile, the state board has not initiated any action against students identified in the paper leak cases.

2 minors from fatka gang, held near Parsik Hills2 minors from fatka gang, held near Parsik HillsManoj Badgeri | TNN | Apr 5, 2018, 22:47 ISTRepresentative ImageTHANE: Two minor boys, reportedly part of a fatka gang, were nabbed by the Thane railway police while they were trying to target a victim near the Parsik hills on Wednesday. The boys used to squat along tracks pretending to answer nature’s call and hit commuters with stone-filled gunny sacks once they came within striking distance. The modus operandi of the boys, aged around 13 years, was such that they used to squat along the tracks pretending to answer nature’s call at the mouth of the Parsik tunnel. They would keep a watch on commuters talking on the phone or carrying bags standing on the footboard and used to immediately stand up and strike at them. They would fill stones in gunny bags and hurl them at passengers, said Uttam Sonawane, senior inspector, Thane railway police. The police recovered five mobile phones from the boys on Wednesday and presented them before the juvenile court in Bhiwandi that has sent them to the remand home. The boys have told the police about four other minor boys from their area, who are also allegedly involved in the crime. Some of the boys seem to be used to sniffing solvents and used to commit these crimes to fund their addiction, said Sonawane.

2018-04-05General body seeks relocation of Thane Central Jail, to turn fort housing it into tourist attraction - Times of India
General body seeks relocation of Thane Central Jail, to turn fort housing it into tourist attractionGeneral body seeks relocation of Thane Central Jail, to turn fort housing it into tourist attractionManoj Badgeri | TNN | Apr 5, 2018, 22:50 ISTTHANE: The general body of the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has sought relocation of the Thane Central Jail and convert the heritage structure into a tourist spot. It recommended a budgetary allocation for it in the current fiscal. During the two-day discussion, which went on till the early hours of Wednesday, the general body moved a resolution for converting the Thane Central Jail into a tourist centre and relocating the inmates to a separate facility. A budget head with Rs 1 crore allocation was also made for the same, which will now be analyzed at the administrative level before it is implemented. The sprawling central jail campus located on the old Mumbai-Pune highway was probably built in the 18th century and essentially used as a fortress. The nearly 38 acres sprawl of the jail premises presently houses over 3,000 inmates in several barracks, including the high security anda cells. The campus also houses the staff quarters, factory units among others. Corporators justified that the premises is located in the central part of the city and should be relocated to a distant area while the current area could be opened up for the public as recreation and museum giving a peek into the history of the city. We have suggested the jail be shifted out of its present location. A budgetary allocation has been recommended for conducting further surveys, said Shiv Sena corporator and leader of House Naresh Mhaske, who had first proposed the plan. The civic body said that the proposal will have to be studied as any decision on this project will have to be taken by the state home department. “The suggestion was made and discussed by the corporators during the budget meeting and we will have to wait till we get their proposal. We do not have the powers to decide on this issue and after analyzing it, it will be forwarded to the state government,” said additional municipal commissioner Sunil Chavan.

2018-04-05Two days after Thane subway murder, commuters demand CCTV, SATIS to curb crime - Hindustan Times
Two days after Thane subway murder, commuters demand CCTV, SATIS to curb crime On Tuesday night, three drug addicts killed Vinod Surve, a Kalyan resident, in a bid to rob him. They banged his head on the wall inside the subway. MUMBAI Updated: Apr 06, 2018 01:09 IST The recent murder of a 45-year-old man inside the subway in Kalyan (East) railway station has highlighted how unsafe the pathway connecting the station and Kalyan (East) is at night “Despite a skywalk connecting Siddharth Nagar area, many choose to take the narrow subways as a short-cut on a daily basis,” said N. D Patil senior inspector, Kolsewadi police station. The first arm of the skywalk towards Siddharth Nagar was opened in January last year while the second arm towards Kolsewadi is yet to be opened. The Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) has assured that it will be opened before monsoon this year. The incident took place on Tuesday night when three drug addicts killed Vinod Surve, a resident of Chinchpada, Kalyan (East,) in a bid to rob him. They banged his head on the wall inside the subway. Following this, the Kolsewadi police have started patrolling the area during night hours. The police managed to nab the three accused on Wednesday. “Two of our cops are deployed to patrol the subway premises in the night to ensure safety of commuters. The entire area outside the railway station on the east side is isolated and has several drug addicts in the night. We will keep a watch on them,” said Patil. Several commuters who are now taking the skywalk instead of the subway claim that the Railways should shut down the subways and the commuters should be forced to use the skywalk. Commuters also demanded installation of CCTV in the area and developing a station area traffic management system (SATIS). “The only way to keep continuous watch in the area is by installing CCTV. Presently, there are no cameras installed,” said Pooja Mishra, 40 , a commuter who takes the subway daily from Kolsewadi. “I think the only way to curb such incidents is to close the tunnels and not allow commuters to walk through the railway land. This will force them to take the skywalk which is safer,” said Maya Prajapati, 34, a commuter who takes the skywalk from Siddharth Nagar daily to reach Kalyan station. Read more: Man kills 72-year-old friend over fight for space on bench at railway station in Mumbai Railway police officials are usually deployed near the subways in the day to keep a watch on the hawkers’ menace outside the subways. However, at night, the entire area is unsafe. “The subways are narrow and dimly lit. I think the subways should have at least two cops deployed throughout the night,” said Sandesh Munde, 45, a commuter who takes the tunnel daily to reach the Kalyan station. When one leaves Kalyan railway station towards the east side, one has to take one subway and then trespass the railway tracks to reach Siddharth Nagar. If one has to reach the Kolsewadi area, then two subways come in the way. A Railway Protection Force (RPF) officer, requesting anonymity, said, “Currently, we have asked our officials to keep a watch in these areas in the night and nab drug addicts in the area. Meanwhile, we will also ask the commuters to take the available skywalk and avoid using the subway as much as possible.” THE SKYWALK WHICH NO ONE TAKES CONSTRUCTION: Built by the KDMC, the Rs 35-crore skywalk is funded by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA). Started in 2011, the work was delayed as the civic body missed several deadlines due to changes being made in the project plan. Currently, 90% of the work for the second arm of the skywalk is over. “Almost 90% of the work for the second arm is finished. Some work of the roof is remaining. We will finish the work before monsoon,” said Tarun Juneja, executive engineer, KDMC. MURDER TRIGGERS PANIC A 45-year-old man, who heading towards Ganesh Mandir Chowk in Kalyan (East) on Tuesday night, was killed by three drug addicts in the railway subway . The man was robbed of money and a mobile phone. The Kolsewadi police arrested the three accused. The victim – Vinod Surve works in a private firm in Uran. As per the police, the accused stopped him and beat him up brutally and later banged his head on the wall. It was after a while before other commuters taking the subway saw Surve bleeding and alerted the police. Surve is married and has a child. UNSAFE SUBWAY The area on the east of the Kalyan railway station is isolated with open land, two subways, and goods train tracks unlike the Kalyan (West) side which is busy. Commuters have to walk through the isolated railway land to reach the autorickshaw stand, which is at least a 1-km away from the station. Residents also claim that commuters don’t take the skywalk because most of them park their vehicles near the tunnels. “There should be a SATIS developed in Kalyan (East) which will help one reach the station on their vehicles without taking the skywalks. Those who do not have a vehicle can take the skywalk,” said Ajay Mehta, 46, a resident of Tisgaon Kalyan (East). The subway around 10 years old. The Kolsewadi police said that two commuters had complained against drug addicts in the past six months but no case was lodged.

Thane police files case against MNS Corporator Sudha Chavan - United News of India
2018-04-04Thane girl dies of electrocution, MSEB man booked - Free Press Journal
Thane girl dies of electrocution, MSEB man booked Apr 04, 2018 08:41 am Thane: Siddhi Gupta, an eight-year-old Thane girl died of electrocution on Monday while she was sitting on the iron staircase. Siddhi lost her life on the stair case as she was playing there. Her neighbours after hearing a loud scream came running to her rescue who watched Siddhi attempting to get up. The neighbours tried to pull her with wooden stick and bamboos but it was too late. People of her vicinity gathered at the police station demanding the arrest of a wireman, who had not even bothered to inform them about some power work happening. The police have booked wireman Datta Patil, who works for Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB). “We tried to pull her, but the voltage was high and by the time we managed to do that, she fell unconscious,” said a member of Chawl. Siddhi was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead. “The residents from Lokmanya Nagar alleged that she died because of the MSEB wireman’s negligence, who started wiring work around their houses without intimating them. They also claimed that the wiring was faulty and led to a short circuit on Monday evening, but MSEB didn’t bother to repair it,” said P Girdhar, senior police inspector from Vartak Nagar police station. Locals who came in contact with the electric shock immediately moved to a safer side, but the girl, who was playing on the staircase, could not do so. “Soon after she was pronounced dead, around 100 people reached the police station and filed an FIR against the wireman. After that, we took Siddhi’s family’s statement and registered a case under Section 304 (a) (causing death by negligence) of the IPC against Datta Patil,” said Girdhar.

How this Thane barren stretch was transformed into forest land Freny Fernandes | TNN | Updated: Apr 4, 2018, 12:08 IST THANE: From a barren land studded with rocks and weeds, to a healthy thriving green pasture that has been attracting a world of biodiversity, it took a Thane NGO less than a year to transform the 19-hectare arid forest land in Titwala’s Runde region into a green one. In January last year, the forest department had handed over this barren land adjoining the Kalu river in Titwala’s Runde area to Paryavaran Dakshata Mandal for this seven-year-long project on a tri-party agreement. From clearing the weeds and levelling the land to planting close to 8,000 two-year-old home grown saplings and nurturing them on a daily basis, the members of the NGO, with the help of numerous volunteers and a team of labourers have been working non-stop towards reviving the lost greenery here since the start of the monsoon. Their efforts seem to have already borne fruit as their plantation drive titled the Devrai project has witnessed a 98 per cent survival rate till date. “When we started the project, our main aim was to bring back the greenery this area once had. We began by studying the soil, water and other aspects of the land. To ensure the project’s success, we had to plant saplings which we knew would survive,” said Sangita Joshi, a member of the NGO. Conservator of forest (social forestry) K D Thakare, who recently visited the location, said, “We have numerous such tri-party projects with non-governmental groups where they are given a piece of the forest land to revive. Less than a year after this project started, the NGO has managed to revive the areas lost green cover. The greenery has also started attracting birds, insects and fauna. It is becoming a complete eco-system once again.”

2018-04-04Cases of dehydration, cold up with rise in temperature - Times of India
Cases of dehydration, cold up with rise in temperature Apr 4, 2018, 22:43 IST THANE: The rising temperature has brought along ailments like viral fever, cold, gastrointestinal problem, dehydration and respiratory tract infections among children as well as adults. Pediatricians claim that there has been a rise of around 40 per cent in the number of children visiting their clinics with such complains. “The high temperature has led to many suffering from dehydration. Also, children tend to be outdoors in the scorching heat and do not consume enough fluids. Though due to our humid climates we do not see cases of heat strokes, the rising temperature exhausts us of all the fluids from our bodies leading to a rise of around 40 per cent in the number of patients suffering from dehydration. Also, we come across kids who are vomiting and have gastrointestinal problems because of consumption of outside food,” said Dr Suhas Kulkarni, city-based pediatrician. Not only children but even adults are getting gastrointestinal infections. “Usually people suffer from respiratory tract infections during monsoon or winter as there are viruses present in the atmosphere. But viruses even thrive on extreme hot climates and due to this there has been an increase in the number of patients with acute bronchitis and respiratory tract infections. Out of the patients complaining of breathlessness almost 30 per cent cases are severe and need to be admitted to hospital,” said Dr Suparna Nirgudkar, consultant physician.

2018-04-04Thane excise wing ringing loud at March end | Free Press Journal - Free Press Journal
Thane excise wing ringing loud at March end Apr 04, 2018 09:06 am Bhayandar: The cash registers of the Thane excise wing are ringing loud, following a surge in revenue collections towards renewals of liquor vending units in Mira Bhayandar. This despite odds including- the ban on the sale of liquor on highways, government plans to tweak policy by issuing FL II licenses to bars and massive demolition drive against the industry which caters to the liquor needs of the city. Rs 6,60 crore was collected as renewal fees for the 2018-19 fiscal from 238 establishments inlcuding-17 wine shops, 149 permit rooms, 55 beer shops and 17 country liquor vends in the twin-city. The collections have witnessed a hike averaging 18 per cent compared to last year. “We have achieved our anticipated target. The collections have witnessed a hike averaging 15 to 18 per cent compared to last year,” said excise officer Abhijeet Deshmukh. But it has been alleged that the figures could have been much higher, if the transfer process were in accordance of the framed rules. “I have filed a RTI seeking info seeking amount recovered towards transfer fees, but the authorities are least cared to reply. I have filed an appeal,” said RTI activist Shabbir Kanorwala, who alleged that some bar owners had been evading privilege fees which is eight times of regular fee on the virtue of power of attorneys and invalid NOC’s from previous license holders who had already sold their premises, thus cheating the government exchequer of huge revenue. The excise officials however clarified that revenue amounting more than Rs 66 lakh had been collected towards transfer and shifting fees. While the excise wing has managed to fill its coffers indicating that the watering holes have managed to recover from the huge set back of the highway ban, some bar owners have moved court seeking reimbursement, for the closures (ban) period.

Bombay High Court dismisses Thane activist's petition in harassment case Updated: Apr 3, 2018, 06:45 AM IST The Bombay High Court on Monday dismissed a writ petition filed by Thane activist Vikrant Karnik, which was filed pertaining to a case where a 15-year-old girl alleged harassment by Thane Municipal commissioner's (TMC). Karnik had demanded in the petition that the cops record the statement of the minor, who worked as domestic help at the TMC commissioner's residence. In January, Karnik had filed a petition in Bombay High Court asking the court to direct the Thane police to file a case under the POCSO Act against TMC commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal. A bench of Justice RM Savant and Sarang Kotwal directed ACP Padmaja Chavan of special branch, to record the girl's statement in accordance with the POCSO (protection of children from sexual offences) Act. In December 2017, a video went viral where the girl alleged that Jaiswal had harassed her and was forced to offer massage to him and his friends. The matter came up for hearing on Monday and the bench dismissed the petition as the girl refuted the allegations that she had made against Jaiswal. A TMC official, who does not wish to be named said, 'Justice finally prevails, truth never stays hidden."

2018-04-03How plogging can help Indian cities - Times of India
How plogging can help Indian cities | TNN | Updated: Apr 3, 2018, 16:10 IST THANE: While the 'plogging' initiative or the act of picking up litter while jogging or strolling was kick-started on a small scale in a small part of Stockholm about an year ago, it seems to have spread across the globe like wildfire. From the Scandinavian countries of Sweden, Norway and Denmark to the European nations of Edinburgh and Paris to the US's New York City, New Jersey, Philadephia and Boston, and now various parts of India, citizens across the globe have begun taking to the streets to join in the fitness cum litter-free movement. Hayden DeSouza (27), a New Jersey resident said, "I am a jogging enthusiast and began plogging last month near the Hoboken waterfront when I came across a group of like-minded joggers who were picking up the litter and putting it in some bags they were carrying. They told me about this plogging movement and I was amazed. Since then, I have been carrying gloves and a bag on my runs too." From cigarette packets and chocolate and crisp wrappers to thermocol and plastic bags and bottles, every bit of litter is the target of this plogging treasure hunt globally, and many are joining the movement for the fitness benefit associated with it. "The concept literally means picking up litter (from the Swedish word Plocka upp) whilst jogging or sprinting or even walking. It doesn't need a large group or massive infrastructure, and can be done by a single person on their daily walk,” added NRI and Paris denizen Asmita Naik (24), who started jogging to participate in this drive. While this movement has gained momentum in these developed countries a few months ago, it has recently also started occurring in various parts of developing nations like India. “India is infamous for the litter and waste seen on the streets and the garbage choking the drainages that result in flooding in the monsoon. We started the movement in lake-city of Thane, which lies 25km from the Metropolitan city of Mumbai on Sunday. As this pilot has proven to be successful, we are planning to spread it across 200 locations in these two cities, and hope that other cities pick it up in their area,” said, retired Indian Air Force officer and founder of Earthkids NGO Tarun Gautam. “We have also been approached by the Hyderabad municipal corporation to start it off as an official movement. If this project spreads in the country on a massive scale, it could change the negative image of our nation,” Gautam added.

9-year-old girl playing on stairs electrocuted to death in Thane, MSEB wireman booked Updated: Apr 03, 2018 17:04 IST A nine-year-old girl from Thane was electrocuted to death while sitting on an iron staircase on Monday. The police have booked a Maharashtra State Electricity Board ( MSEB ) wireman, Datta Patil. The victim, Siddhi Gupta, a resident of Lokmanya Nagar, was sitting on the staircase, when she suddenly screamed. When her neighbours heard her, they ran out and saw her trying to stand up, but she was not able to. The locals then tried to pull her out using wooden sticks and slippers. By the time they pulled her out she was unconscious," said a police officer from Vartak Nagar police station. Gupta was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead. "The residents from Lokmanya Nagar alleged that she died because of the MSEB wireman’s negligence, who started wiring work around their houses without intimating them. They also claimed that the wiring was faulty and led to a short circuit on Monday evening, but MSEB didn’t bother to repair it,” said P Girdhar, senior police inspector from Vartak Nagar police station. Locals who came in contact with the electric shock immediately moved to a safer side, but the girl, who was playing on staircase, could not do so. "Soon after she was pronounced dead, around 100 people reached the police station and filed an FIR against the wireman. After that, we took Gupta's family’s statement and registered a case under Section 304 (a) (causing death by negligence) of the Indian Penal Code against Datta Patil," said Girdhar.

2018-04-03Thane cops arrest Assam constable in CDR scam - The Asian Age - The Asian Age
Thane cops arrest Assam constable in CDR scam Published : Apr 4, 2018, 2:18 am IST Updated : Apr 4, 2018, 2:16 am IST The investigators sent the phone numbers found with the accused to Assam police for action. Mumbai: Key information Thane police obtained in the call detail records (CDR) scam has helped Assam police register a fresh case and arrest a police constable there. The arrested constable had been in touch with some of the accused in the CDR scam pertaining to illegal acquisition of CDR. The investigators sent the phone numbers found with the accused to Assam police for action. The suspect, identified as Bhubaneshwar Das, allegedly sourced the phone numbers from the computer of a senior Indian Police Service (IPS) official of Assam police. Thane police may seek the custody of the suspect. “Based on the information we found in the probe, we informed the Assam police. They have registered a fresh case in the incident. We are taking legal opinion on seeking his custody for interrogation in our case,” said Abhishek Trimukhe, deputy commissioner of police (Thane crime branch). Das had allegedly sourced CDRs of several persons, whose names Thane police refused to reveal at this stage of the investigation. Das is attached to the Haflong police station’s cyber cell. This helped him source the CDR records fraudulently. Earlier, the Thane crime branch had arrested a constable from Yavatmal in Maharashtra in the case. The suspect, Nitin Khawade, 29, was also attached to the police cyber cell and had easy access to the CDRs. In all, 12 people including Rizwan Siddique, a lawyer, and Rajani Pandit, a private detective, were arrested in the case.

Constable from Assam held in Thane CDR case Last Updated at April 3, 2018 10:20 IST A police constable from Assam has been arrested in connection with the call data records (CDR) racket busted by the Thane police, an official said. While investigating the racket, the police chanced upon a call data record and traced it to a mobile number from Assam, the official of the Thane Crime Branch which is probing the case said last night. The Thane police officials then informed their counterparts in Assam to conduct an inquiry into it, he said. Last week, the Assam police arrested the constable, Bhubaneshwar Das, attached to the Haflong police station, he said. Das, working in the police's cyber cell, had illegally procured a CDR which was found in possession of one of the persons arrested in Thane, the official said. A case was registered against Das at the Haflong police station and a process was underway to bring him to Thane, he said. The Thane crime branch had earlier also arrested a constable posted in the Yavatmal district of Maharashtra, in the CDR leak case. The arrested constable, Nitin Khawade (29), was also attached to the police's cyber cell and had easy access to the call data records, the police said. Nearly 12 people have so far been arrested in connection with the racket, which revolved around private detectives illegally procuring CDRs of certain people and selling them to their clients. The Thane police had earlier arrested some private detectives and a Mumbai-based lawyer in connection with the illegal procurement of call data records. Advocate Rizwan Siddiqui, who was arrested last month, had represented many celebrities, including Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The Thane police had last month summoned Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a witness, though had no direct role in the CDR case, a senior official earlier said. Thane's Deputy Commissioner of Police Abhishek Trimukhi had earlier said that some of the accused told the police that Nawazuddin Siddiqui's lawyer had allegedly obtained CDRs of the actor's wife from private detectives. The Crime Branch has so far seized hundreds of CDRs from the arrested people. These CDRs were being analysed by experts with the assistance of the mobile service providers, the police said.

Hence, her statement could not be recorded.The state had also raised doubts on the veracity of the girl's allegations.The bench, however, had noted that the police had an obligation to implement the provisions of section 24 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, that deals with recording a minor victim's statement irrespective of any apprehensions on the veracity of the allegations.Today, the state's counsel, Y P Yagnik, submitted transcripts of the victim's testimony before the Thane Police and also before the magistrate under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), stating that the allegations made by her were false.Thus, the bench noted that nothing survived in the plea anymore given the retraction of the allegations by the victim.(This story has not been edited by Business Standard staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.)

Cops return 106 missing mobile phones to ownersCops return 106 missing mobile phones to ownersNishikant Karlikar | tnn | Updated: Apr 2, 2018, 22:27 ISTThane: As many as 106 ‘missing’ mobile phones worth Rs 16 lakh were traced and returned to their owners in a one-of-its kind special drive launched by zone-1 of the Thane police. The police said that apart from the 106 mobile phones, they have also seized 13 stolen mobile phones from 11 different cases and have even arrested 11 accused. According to police, this is an ongoing drive and they have formed a specialized team with two sub-inspectors — S M Deshmukh, GA Kekan—along with a team of constables to trace the missing as well as stolen mobile phones besides the task to collate the total number of missing mobiles cases across the six police stations of the zone-1 and trace the same, said D Swamy, the deputy commissioner of police (zone-1). The police said that the IMEI numbers of the missing mobile companies were intimated and when a new sim card was put in or activated, the companies informed the police. “Soon after getting the details, the person who is using the missing mobile phone was tricked and called by the police and asked for bills etc. failing to provide it, the police told them to return the phones and handed over the phones to the original owners,” said the officer. After collating the data, on Monday original owners who had lost the hopes of getting back the mobile phones and were clues less when the police informed them of tracking their missing phones. A owner who did not wished to be named said, “The drive is good but my phone was not lost infact it was stolen, the complaint was taken as missing either ways, the DCP has atleast taken the cognizance of the missing complaints which are just a formality for the law enforcing agencies.” Get latest news & live updates on the go on your pc with News App. Download The Times of India news app for your device.

2018-04-02Fadnavis to inaugurate 20 projects in Thane on Saturday - Hindustan Times
Fadnavis to inaugurate 20 projects in Thane on Saturday The list also includes laying the foundation stone of waterfront development project. mumbai Updated: Apr 03, 2018 00:24 IST Megha Pol Hindustan Times Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis will inaugurate more than 20 projects in Thane on Saturday.(HT File) Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis will inaugurate more than 20 projects in Thane on Saturday, said Thane municipal commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal on Monday.The list also includes laying the foundation stone of waterfront development project.An official from the Thane civic body said, “Fadnavis will visit the city to lay the foundation of around 20 to 25 developmental projects. Some of the projects include waterfront development project, installation of 10 megawatt power generation plant, solar panels on civic schools, installation of 100 CCTV cameras, citywide Wi-Fi network, digital hospital management system, new sewerage network, MRI and CT scan machine inauguration and traffic theme park.”With the CM coming to inaugurate the projects, the drift between Jaiswal and the Shiv Sena, which is ruling the Thane Municipal Corporation, is likely to widen. The Sena mayor, Meenakshi Shinde, and Jaiswal have been at loggerheads for the past few days over the functioning of the general body meeting. Jaiswal’s instruction to his officials to boycott the general body meeting last week did not go down well with the mayor.Shinde said she was not aware of Saturday’s event. “I have not yet got the invite,” she said. tags Thane Fadnavis Foundation stone Saturday Devendra Fadnavis CCTV camera Thane Municipal Corporation Thane on Saturday more from mumbai Vidarbha and Amravati express trains to halt at Thane station Apr 03, 2018 00:21 IST Maharashtra SSC?paper leak: Mumbai school supervisor held Apr 03, 2018 00:20 IST Smashing the stereotype: Why we should stop believing myths about women and money Promotional Feature IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchiPune SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipFitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperinteractivesPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniStudymateEnglishmateHTsyndicationbridge schoolht brand studio Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.

Maybe you can try plogging, the latest fitness craze that has descended on Thane. On Sunday, 200 fitness enthusiasts in jogging shoes and sweatbands, armed with litter collection bags, entered the Yeoor forest range at 6am and picked up trash strewn across the roads while trotting forth. This is perhaps the first plogging movement in the state. The trend is said to have been conceptualised by the Swedes and has been replicated globally thereafter. The Yeoor drive was organised by NGOs Earthkids Humanity Foundation and Yeoor Environmental Society, with the help of the civic body. Mayur Jamdhade (28), a coaching institute owner who went with 30 students said, “It was an amazing three-hour ex-perience. We keep talking and reading about the ill-effects of waste and plastic, we got a firsthand experience.” The joggers started from Yeoor Gate and went up to Patonpada area—a 4.5km stretch—picking up plastic, wrappers and whatever waste came their way. Founder of Earthkids Tarun Gautam, a retired Indian Air Force officer, said, “I was posted at Yeoor Air Force station a few years ago and organized numerous clean -up drives in the green zone. But they were not as effective as they were on a small-scale. A few months ago, I read about plogging and realised that Yeoor sees hundreds of joggers everyday.” “We also hope that this initiative helps curb flooding during monsoon. We plan to hold the drive once a month,” said Rohit Joshi, member NGO Yeoor Environmental Society. While the drive proved to be successful, NGO volunteers worked round-the-clock for the past two weeks to spread the word. “We went up to each jogger around Upvan in mornings and evenings and explained to them the importance of this initiative. We also reached out to citizens on social media. While we had 100 registrations, more than 200 turned up on Sunday,” Joshi said. On Sunday, two civic waste collection vans were filled up with the litter collected by these enthusiasts. “Yesterday, the municipal corporation arranged for waste cans. However, when I go daily, there are barely any. Those that exist are overflowing. Civic bodies should add more bins and speed up waste pick-up process. The movement will succeed if government and citizens come together and replicate it everywhere,” said Vikram Khade (34). Speaking about the relationship between fitness and environment, international marathoner Dr Mahesh Bedekar said, “Sportspersons always participate in green initiatives as they know environment impacts health. While plogging is a fairly new concept, athletes have been known to take up green initiatives. But I do not know how many want to stop and pick up waste.” The drive also had its share of entertainment as some groups performed song and dance.

Auditors punch holes in road digging works undertaken by agencies | TNN | Updated: Apr 3, 2018, 00:41 IST THANE: The public works department of the Thane municipal corporation has come under the scanner of the auditors who have pointed out lapses in the road digging works undertaken by agencies for laying utilities in the financial year 2015-16. As many as seven instances of under-recovery or errors in levying charges to agencies to the tune of Rs 1.12 crore have been noted by the panel of auditors who had accessed and checked the corporation books. Several agencies including internet, mobile companies, piped gas, etc are allowed to dig roads in the city and are charged a fixed rate approved by the general body. However, the findings by the auditors have revealed that in some cases, the rates levied were less than the approved one while in some cases, the recovery was yet to be done for the jobs. A copy of the audit report in possession of this newspaper speaks of the instance of Vartak Nagar where the recovery of dues from a telecom major amounting to Rs 40lakhs was yet to be recovered. A 390m stretch was dug up from Pawar Nagar to Vasant Vihar for laying some cable for which the corporation had levied the charges which was yet to be recovered. In another instance in Mumbra, an agency undertaking four separate works was levied rates lesser than what was approved by the general body in the month of April 2015. Instead of the approved rates of digging for Water Bound Macadam type roads of Rs 3300sqm, a lesser amount of Rs 2,500sqm was charged to the agency causing a deficit of Rs 8 lakhs to the corporation, informed a state-appointed auditor from the panel. The road rent for as many as nine works undertaken in the Kalwa administrative ward was done using the old rates of Rs 100 was done while it should have been Rs 200 per sqm. The under valuation has led to a demand of Rs 10 lakhs to be recovered from the various agencies, reveals the audit report. It may be noted the road digging works is one of the good revenue earners for the administration that has raked in collectively over Rs 400 crore over the last financial years. Agencies that need to lay their utility lines llike internet, gap pipeline, water pipeline etc, under the city roads have to seek an approval from the Thane Municipal Corporation’s public works department after paying adequate charges depending on the quality of the road and the duration of the works.

2018-04-01Thane residents come together to organise first-of-its-kind plogging event - Hindustan Times
Thane residents come together to organise first-of-its-kind plogging event ‘Plogging’ is a combination of the words ‘jogging’ and Swedish phrase ‘plocka upp’ (to pick up). Simply put, plogging involves picking up trash while out for jogging. mumbai Updated: Apr 02, 2018 00:19 IST Yesha Kotak Hindustan Times Residents clear plastic waste during the plogging event.(Praful Gangurde/ Hindustan Times) On Sunday morning, around 70 Thane residents came together to pick up plastic and trash across three kilometres on Yeoor Hills in Thane, in what was the first ‘plogging’ event in the city. ‘Plogging’ is a combination of the words ‘jogging’ and Swedish phrase ‘plocka upp’ (to pick up). Simply put, plogging involves picking up trash while out for jogging. Plogging originated in Sweden last year, and eventually spread to the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada after it began trending on social media. Though in its nascent stages, the trend is now becoming popular among Indians too.Those who participated on Sunday’s plogging, most of whom were teenagers and regular visitors to the park, said they had not heard about the concept, until they reached the Yeoor gate, which is a part of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. “I come here to jog every Sunday. I was discussing about the issue of plastic waste getting worse in Yeoor just last week with my husband. I got to know about this event after that,” said Jyoti Gupta, a financial consultant.For Vinisha Mathias, a student of St Xavier’s College, plogging was the ‘good deed’ she did on Easter.“I have always wondered about what I can do for the society. Today, I feel good because it is our responsibility to clean the waste we leave behind,” Mathias said.The group collected the waste at Yeoor in cotton bags, which was disposed of in two garbage tippers provided to them by Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC). The group now intends to hold a similar drive on the first Sunday of every month.“The participants were asked to only collect plastic waste, and were given gloves for safety. The whole purpose of this initiative is to get the youth involved. When you associate a clean-up drive with fitness and have a Zumba session followed by a breakfast in the end, it will get the youth on the streets to do socio-environmental work. We had asked the group to be silent, so as to not disturb the natural surroundings,” said Tarun Kumar, a retired Air Force officer and founder of Earthkids Humanity Foundation, which was one of the organisers of the event. The Yeoor Environmental Society is another organisation which played a role in Sunday’s event. Rohit Joshi, founder of the society said that having a regular plogging event before monsoons will help in clearing the plastic waste, so that the drainage system does not choke, thereby preventing floods. “Yeoor forest is an eco-sensitive zone, and such events before monsoon will ensure that we save many species here, as we would be protecting their natural habitat from destruction,” said Joshi.“It was a good initiative by eight-10 groups which came together. People usually have a mentality that the civic body should manage their waste. They fail to realise that clearing the waste left in public places is also their responsibility because they are the ones littering the area,” said Parisha Sarnaik, a local corporator.The decision to hold this event comes after state government proposed the Maharashtra Plastic and Thermocol Products (manufacture, usage, sale, transport, handling and storage) notification, as a result of which there is an effective ban on manufacture, usage, sale, transport, distribution, storage and import of plastic products and thermocol from March 23 onwards. tags Yeoor Sanjay Gandhi National Park Canada United States United Kingdom Sweden more from mumbai Cyber-fraudster spoofs email to dupe Mumbai bizman of Rs5.27 lakh Apr 02, 2018 00:11 IST Two Nigerians, one Indian held for seed fraud in?Mumbai Apr 02, 2018 00:06 IST Smashing the stereotype: Why we should stop believing myths about women and money Promotional Feature Recommended for you Read more Mumbaiites, love to jog at Yeoor Hills?
