At RTI katta, we only discuss issues related to RTI – Shobha Subhedar Shobha Subhedar is a freelance writer who writes columns for the newspaper Thane Vaibhav. An M.A in Marathi literature, she has also authored a book called ‘Tichyatil Stree’. Her book, published in Marathi, is a compilation of all her columns that appeared in the daily Navshakti over a span of four years. Subhedar has made a successful transition to activism, as she holds fort during the RTI katta sessions at M H High School in Thane (W), twice a month. During these sessions she not only shares information about how to effectively use the Right to Information Act (2005), but also tries to ensure that the tool is used to benefit others.Subhedar says that being a columnist, writing and commenting on what was happening in the society came naturally to her. She closely followed Anna Hazare’s movement that ensured that RTI act is passed. She says, “I feel that the RTI is the most powerful weapon that a common man can use to set things right. I realised that many of us did not know what the RTI is and how to use it. At RTI katta, we only discuss issues related to RTI.”A slow startSubhedar held the first session at Mahatma Gandhi garden in June 2009 on 1st Saturday. While banners were used to announce the event in advance, those who came did not stay for long. She used the local newspapers to inform people about the upcoming sessions. The sessions are now held at M H High School twice a month and are free of cost.Over a period of time interest in the sessions grew. Subhedar, describing the initial sessions, says, “It was the month of June and it was raining heavily, yet people came to attend the session. In one of the sessions, a visually challenged person came and sat till the very end. I was amazed to see his interest.”However the young generation that does not seem to be too interested in using the RTI according Subhedar. She adds, “I conduct several programmes in colleges and in the end, I ask the students to attend my RTI sessions. None of them show up. I feel that youngsters have the ability to change and should take an initiative in activities.”Won’t charge a penny, says SubhedarSubhedar is clear that she would not charge money for the sessions. While many have asked her to charge a basic fee of Rs 10, she has refused to do so. She explains, “I do not want to be like the organisations that take money but do not deliver anything. Also, I feel that only the people who are genuinely interested in filing a RTI must come.”The sessions have not just focussed on sharing information, but also on using it to deliver tangible results. In 2009, six firemen lost their lives inside the lift when the 14th floor of Punarvaru building in Thane’s Samta Nagar caught fire. Subhedar says, “Questions like why there was no ladder to reach the 14h floor and how did the firemen not know that they must avoid using the lift came to mind. We discussed the issue at our RTI katta sessions and filed several RTIs.” The replies also helped the families of the deceased.Giving social causes a pushRTI activism is not the only things that Subhedar does. She is also actively involved in a neem awareness campaign as a part of which she has distributed hundreds of neem saplings and seeds. She also works as a counsellor and motivational speaker. She is involved in a project that focuses on educating people at grassroots about the importance of keeping the wells clean.While activism is an important part of her life, it is her family that gives her the strength to continue her work. Subhedar says, “My husband is an engineering consultant, my daughter is an architect while my son is pursuing his post graduation. They make my life meaningful.”The sessions are conducted on the first and third Saturday of every month from 6 pm to 8 pm at the M H High School in Thane (W) and are open to all   Saturday, 28 February 2015 - 9:00am IST | Rupali Shinde | Edited by: Disha Shetty #Thane #RTI katta #Activist #Shobha Subhedar #‘Tichyatil Stree’ #Right To Information #Anna Hazare #Navshakti X What's happening in your neighbourhood?

Thane police write to accounts from which TCS received ‘defamatory’ emails Comments Email Print Written by Srinath Raghvendra Rao | Mumbai | March 1, 2015 2:02 am The Thane Police have written to the senders of the alleged defamatory emails to directors and clients of software giant Tata Consultancy Services, asking them to co-operate with the investigation. The emails were allegedly sent by forums formed by TCS employees. TCS had registered a complaint with the Cyber Crime Investigation Cell of the Thane Police last week after unidentified individuals sent alleged defamatory emails to TCS directors and clients. The clients were urged not to do business with the firm. According to the complaint, the emails brought “disrepute to the firm” and “harmed business interests.” According to the police, these emails were sent from two Outlook accounts and one Gmail account. The accounts bear the names of the associations formed by TCS employees – loyaltcser@gmail.com of the TCS Employees Union, sea.tcs@outlook.com of the TCS Software Employees Forum and tcs.employees@outlokk.com of TCS Employees Forum. “The senders of the emails have not committed a conventional crime which is why we want to hear their side of the story before taking further action. We have written several emails to each of these accounts, but are yet to receive a reply. If they do not come forward, we will trace them,” said Inspector Sanju John of the Thane cyber cell. John added, “We have written to the Gmail and Outlook servers asking for the identities of the account-holders, but receiving such information usually takes time. We are also trying to find the union and forums on social media. Until we identify the senders, we cannot say that these employees forums are responsible for the emails.” TCS had faced lawsuits from several trade unions and former workers following rumours late last month that hundreds of its employees would be laid-off. Ajit Menon, TCS’s chief security officer, did not comment on the identity of the senders. srinath.rao@expressindia.com Comments
2015-02-27Thane school student awarded Rs 10 lakh compensati
Thane school student awarded Rs 10 lakh compensation for 2007 mishap Last Updated: Friday, February 27, 2015 - 16:13 0 Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Whatsapp  Comment Thane: The Thane Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) has awarded a compensation of Rs 10.75 lakh to a student, who sustained major injuries in a road accident in March 2007 while he was returning home from school on a bicycle. MACT member and Additional Sessions Judge SY Kulkarni in his order issued this week held that the owner of the offending dumper, Baliram Tandel, and the National Insurance Company were jointly and severally liable to pay the compensation to the victim with seven interest from the date of filing the claim. The claimant Irshad Naeem Qureshi (then 10) represented by his father told the tribunal that it was on March 18, 2007 at about 16.25 hours that the applicant was riding his bicycle cautiously and in slow speed, by the side of road at Sector No 19, Koparkhairne. When he was near Sai Baba Temple, suddenly a dumper came speeding in a rash and negligent manner and without giving horn or any indication, dashed against the applicant. Thereafter the dumper ran over him, leaving him seriously injured. Turbhe Police Station registered an offence for rash driving and a compensation of Rs 9 lakh was claimed from the dumper driver and insurer. Discussing the claim the judge said, "Evidence discloses that the boy was studying in fourth standard in Marathi medium school. However, after accident his academic career has been severely and adversely affected and his educational career has been ruined because of the accident. The applicant also deposed that his son has suffered severe physical disability. The injuries on his private parts and thigh have not been completely healed even after 7 years of the accident. As per evidence, his son will never be able to lead a normal life. Due to the disability he would not be able to get a job, the court was told. On the compensation being granted to the victim the judge said, "In view of the evidence on record and deposition of the doctor that the disability assessed by him is permanent and it will not reduce with passage of time--the applicant is still taking OPD treatment and has two major problems (impotency and over?active bladder)-- he has been put in loss so far as his marital prospect is concerned and therefore, I hold that the amount Rs 2,00,000 can be granted to the applicant towards loss of marital prospects. In addition to this, the court said that after going through the evidence on record, one thing is clear that the injured being a minor and a student was not earning anything at the time of the accident.

2015-02-27Thane no home for the homeless - Juneau Empire (su
Thane no home for the homeless • Officials continue eviction campaign on hillside • Couple describe life constantly on the move Stephen Gailliot and Emerald Hlavacek at their latest camp along Thane Road on Thursday. The homeless couple has been asked to move four times in the last three weeks. Stephen Gailliot and Emerald Hlavacek have been on the move for the past two years since they journeyed down from Haines to find a better life. The young couple pitches their bright yellow tent wherever they can find relief from the relentless wind and authorities.Since Alaska Energy Resources Co., of which Alaska Electric Light and Power and AJT Mining Properties, Inc. are subsidiaries, began a new round of evictions on its wooded property off Thane Road, Hlavacek and Gailliot have moved four times in the course of three weeks.A decade ago, the spot above South Franklin Street known as “The Hill” was a prime location for long-term homeless camps. Some transients had lived there for years. One day in 2009, a camper cut down a tree for firewood and it fell on a power line.The collection of makeshift shelters at the Hill was razed as a result, and since then, Alaska Energy Resources Co., via its local subsidiary, has strictly enforced homeless evictions on land that used to belong to the Alaska-Juneau Mining Company.Debbie Driscoll, vice president and director of consumer affairs for AEL&P and corporate secretary for AJT, said the local company routinely patrols the beaches and forested hillsides for homeless camps. Many camps sprout around the outskirts of the Thane Campground or in the campground itself.When “The Hill” was disbanded in 2009, the Thane Campground was left open for just that winter, against custom, to accommodate the dozens of displaced homeless.“We lease land to CBJ for something like a dollar a year for camping,” Driscoll said Thursday. “The area (at the campground) is not set up for people to live on.”Driscoll said the campground itself, complete with portable toilets, a kitchen area and a covered space, is only for temporary camping during the summer and is traditionally closed during winter.One campsite about a mile from the Thane Campground was found abandoned Thursday. The enclave uphill from the road still held dirty blankets and tea packets stuffed into tree trunks. A laminated eviction notice dated Feb. 15 and left on a downed tree said campers would be given two days to vacate before being removed.Driscoll said since January, AEL&P/AJT has issued 10 written notices of eviction to campers on and around the hillside and nearby beaches. Most of the hill along Thane is littered with empty liquor bottles, old socks, trash and abandoned tarps. Many campers forego Juneau’s homeless shelters because they forbid alcohol and co-habitation.Hlavacek said she prefers not to hang around the Glory Hole, which recently reopened after flood damage from a burst water pipe, because the older homeless men there try to flirt or harass and hassle her.The 27-year-old with bashful eyes said she’s not legally married to her partner but feels as though they’ve been together their entire lives.Gailliot was banned from the Glory Hole “for life” because he got into fights with other men in the shelter.He said he used to camp near the ferry terminal but had continual run-ins with police officers and park rangers. One officer told him to “find a place where no one could find him,” but they always seemed to find him.Now that Hlavacek has been travelling with him for the last six months, they prefer to be closer to town.During the day, the couple visits the library and various shops downtown, looking for work. Hlavacek held a job at Silverbow Bakery for a few months but said it’s hard for her to find and keep employment when she can’t take a shower or wash her clothes regularly.Hlavacek is a mother of two young children; they now live in adoptive homes somewhere in the city. She is able to see them every once in awhile and hopes to find a better life not only for herself, but for them.Gailliot said his main goal is to find a job.“To get back on my feet,” he said.The couple assumes AEL&P/AJT will find them again soon and they will be forced to keep moving on. They have no plans to return to Haines for lack of work there and estrangement from their families. They hope the upcoming summer season will offer good fortune.Gailliot expressed interest in travelling to other Southeast communities for seasonal work, but he worried that there is just no place for them.“Wanna move to the moon?” he asked Hlavacek. “Or Mars? I hear they’re hiring.”Editor's note: This story has been updated to clarify the relationship between the parent company Alaska Energy Resources Co. and its two subsidiaries: AEL&P and AJT. • Contact reporter Stephanie Shor at 523-2279 or at stephanie.shor@juneauempire.com.  Advertisement Most Popular Local Wed, 01/18/2017 - 00:04 Fees go up for popular Public Use Cabins State Tue, 01/17/2017 - 17:50 Deficit is distant thunder as Legislature convenes Nation and World Wed, 01/18/2017 - 00:03 GOP targets Endangered Species Act for big changes Art Wed, 01/18/2017 - 00:01 'Piano Tide' offers a story of environmental ethics in Southeast Alaska   View all Local Store Sales Advertisement More

With the festival, the administration hopes to reduce the role of the middlemen and ensure that the farmers get the maximum price for their produce.Vijay Patil, agriculture officer at the district superintendent agriculture office of Thane, said, “This is the second year that the festival is being organised. Last year around 8,000 quintal of rice were sold and we expect the sales to touch 11,000 quintals this year. In this type of festival, the farmer is able to directly reach out to the buyers. This way, the farmer is able to get a great price for his produce, while the consumer gets good quality rice.”Ten different varieties of rice are available at the 90 stalls at the festival. Pravin Patil, 30, a farmer from Vada and one of the stall owners, said, “Due to presence of middlemen, the profit we get is not up to the mark. So we always look forward to such festivals so that we get the price that our produce deserves.”Organisers of the festival say that per kg cost of rice here is at least Rs 10 less than what is available at the markets. Moreshwar Patil (45), another farmer, said, “The customer will get rice which is of a better quality than what is available in the market. Such festivals must take place twice a year instead of just once.” Farmers also felt that organising a festival ahead of monsoons would be a good idea as consumers tend to buy and store rice before the rains.Aparna Deshpande, one of the customers, said, “Last year I bought 100 kgs of kolam rice from here. The rice available here is unprocessed and of good quality. I will buy a different variety of rice this year.”  Friday, 27 February 2015 - 7:19pm IST | Simran Manyar | Edited by: Disha Shetty #Thane #Agriculture department #Maharashtra #Farmer #consumers #customers #Thane zila parishad #Unnati garden #Shivai nagar #Tandool Mahotsav #rice festival #Vijay Patil #Zila Parishad X What's happening in your neighbourhood?

Thane becomes first city in Maharashtra to arrest M-Cat seller under NDPS Thursday, 26 February 2015 - 6:10am IST | Agency: dna | From the print edition Arvind Walmiki 4Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments After the Union government order to include the mephedrone (MD or M-Cat or Meow Meow) drug under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) 1985, the Thane city police have arrested an accused with 55gram of MD. Thus Thane has become the first city in Maharashtra to arrest a peddler of MD. The accused, Hassan aka Haji Afsar Quereshi, 40, is a juice seller. After the Union government order to include the mephedrone (MD or M-Cat or Meow Meow) drug under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) 1985, the Thane city police have arrested an accused with 55gram of MD. Thus Thane has become the first city in Maharashtra to arrest a peddler of MD. The accused, Hassan aka Haji Afsar Quereshi, 40, is a juice seller. The accused was arrested near the Mumbra railway station on Tuesday night. He was produced in court and was given police custody till February 27. The 55 grams of MD found on him cost around Rs 27500. Police said the accused was earlier staying in Andheri, and had come to stay in Mumbra seven or eight years ago. Police were tipped off about the peddler by a local activist named Munna Sahil. Late at night, they reached the fruit stall and nabbed the accused who owned it. Mandar Dharmadhikari, senior police inspector from Thane anti-narcotics cell said, "I, along with our team Mahadev Chabukswar and Amol Walzhade, went to the spot and arrested the accused. Until now, 90% of the drug peddlers whom we have arrested consume MD drugs. It is good that the offences will be now registered under the NDPS act, so that now the accused will be afraid of incurring a long jail sentence under the act." 4Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments city policeDrug peddlersDrugsGovernmentMaharashtraNarcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances ActPsychotropic Substances ActThane

Georgina may take MOE to court over Thane smelter... | 4 hours ago  |  Vote 0    0 Georgina may take MOE to court over Thane smelter cleanup Thane smelter property The town may take legal action against the province’s Environment Ministry to get a cleanup order reinstated against the former Thane smelter property. Waiting game Era/Banner file photo Roland Peacock and Debbie Gordan check on the smelter site. next play/pause pre Georgina Advocate By Heidi Riedner The town is weighing whether or not legal action against the province’s Environment Ministry may be its only move to get a cleanup order reinstated against the former Thane smelter property. Related Stories Barrie joins fight to clean up... Georgina seeks province’s help with... Provincial snub on Georgina smelter... Smelter cleanup remains broken... Georgina smelter cleanup proposed When the smelter went out of business in 1997, with the MOE at the regulatory switch, it left a contaminated field behind in its wake. Years of public outcry, consultations through a public liaison committee, provincial cleanup orders and a sit-down with the environment minister in 2013 have failed to initiate a substantive cleanup of the former aluminum smelter site, which comes with an estimated price tag of $5 million to rehabilitate the property. Council sought legal advice in a couple of closed sessions this past week after Keswick resident and longtime Thane activist Debbie Gordon made a presentation to council last week, asking the town to consider the move. She said any further delay could prejudice the town and the community, as well as limit options to have the site cleaned up. Her request came on the heels of the ministry’s latest action regarding the long-standing and, to date, unresolved issue, which removed a 2002 cleanup order against the former owner of the long abandoned property, Harold Sniatowski, last July, unbeknown to the town and members of a re-organized liaison committee. Gordon, who hired a lawyer to send a letter to Environment Minister Jim Bradley in 2012 demanding the province owns up to its 1989 commitment to clean up the site, said the town should not delay in taking legal action. Receiving legal advice from Ecojustice — a Canadian non-profit environmental law firm that uses litigation to defend and protect the environment — Gordon said the Thane site is “an illegal waste site” contaminating groundwater and removal of the order is “unreasonable” and “unlawful”. Legal action is the only move left to “motivate” the MOE, Gordon added. Long disappointed with the ministry’s apparent hands-off and wait-and-see attitude regarding an issue with huge health and environmental impacts, Gordon disagrees with the ministry’s assessment that there are no off-site effects from what the ministry terms elevated, but considered safe by ministry standards, levels of dioxins and furans in the on-site soil. Gordon is one of many residents who continue to press for a solution from the provincial ministry, despite the fact the MOE changes the rules and doesn’t play fair, according to Gordon. “To its credit, the town has played properly,” Gordon said, but added it’s “like playing Crazy 8s with a cheater”. Former liaison committee members were upset with a newly formed public input and notification committee — made up of members of the business community and Sniatowski at its helm. They considered the move as an obvious sign the MOE was trying to distance itself from and wash its hands of any responsibility. To add insult to injury, the original polluter of the site was running the committee trying to clean it up, Gordon said at the time. Gordon said the town taking legal action now would send a clear message to the ministry that it can’t ignore its responsibilities. Ward 1 Councillor Naomi Davison, who sat on the liaison committee alongside Gordon, said it is time the town gets behind the many motivated and dedicated people such as Gordon who have been tirelessly advocating for a cleanup of the site. “That help …. I’m willing to give,” Davison said. Mayor Margaret Quirk said the control order was the “only hammer that we had over the owner of the property” and any reasons justifying its revocation, including the fact the owner can’t pay for the required work, “make no sense”. “You let him walk away? It’s not right,” Quirk said. “That site needs to be cleaned up,” she said, adding council will look at options available to the town in a closed session with its solicitor.   | (0) Comment Join The Conversation Sign Up Login Latest Local News Sports Oakville Blades tribute graduating players before regular-season finale Snapshot News Trillium grant gives Oakville's Lorne Scots a boost with training Snapshot News Local group doing its part to maintain lake's salmon stock Snapshot WhatsOn Shrek heads to Oakville's St. Mildred's-Lightbourn School Snapshot PHOTOS AND VIDEOS View All Photos View All Videos News A tropical oasis on a cold winter's day News Alpine Ontario ski racing at Glen Eden News Coldest Day of the Year WhatsOn Experiencing Art from the Heart Most Popular WATCH VIDEO: Peel shopping centres on heightened alert after terrorist group urges attacks on malls Four Burlington residents facing drug charges Police nab alleged stunt drivers in speeding crackdown on Dundas Street in Oakville Missing man located in Burlington VIDEO: Police search for Hamilton taxi hold-up suspects In Your Neighbourhood Today Compression stockings can be the key to relief for your tired and achy legs Orthogait Custom Orthotics in Burlington can provide you with relief for your tired and achy legs...

2015-02-24After state appeal, Abu Salem to be moved to Thane
After state appeal, Abu Salem to be moved to Thane jail Feb 25, 2015 - Shahab Ansari | mumbai Share The Bombay high court on Tuesday allowed an appeal filed by the government of Maharashtra against a TADA court order directing the prisons department to transfer gangster Abu Salem back to Taloja jail in Navi Mumbai from Thane jail. It means that Salem, who was in Taloja jail after the court order, will now be shifted to Thane jail. A division bench of Justice Ranjit More and Justice Anuja Prabhudessai observed that Abu Salem is a convict now and, as per the jail manual, the prisons department has the authority to keep him in the prison of their choice. The judges said that the TADA court had passed the order when Salem was an undertrial, but now he has been convicted and the decision to shift is a policy decision. The jail authorities are responsible for managing prisons, so the court will not interfere in it. It may be recalled that Salem had in July 2013 moved an application before the special Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA) court seeking directions to the jail authorities that he should either be moved to Embassy of Portugal in Goa or Delhi or to Taloja jail. Salem’s lawyer had at the time requested the TADA court that he may be transferred to the Portuguese embassy till the final decision is reached on the issue of his repatriation to Portugal post the termination of his extradition order, in the interest of justice. His application had also mentioned that he should be kept only in Taloja jail because he felt unsafe in other jails and the risk to his life from members of the underworld is higher there. He was even injured in Taloja Central jail on June 27, 2013 after he was allegedly shot at by gangster Devendra Jagtap, an accused in the murder of advocate Shahid Azmi who had represented an accused in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case.

Thane: 5 arrested for allegedly drugging, gang-raping minor By Sagar Rajput |Posted 4 hours The 16-year-old was offered Meow Meow drug before the assault The Thane Crime Branch Unit 1 has arrested five individuals for allegedly drugging a 16-year-old girl and taking turns in raping her at three different locations on Friday. A file photo of a protest held in Andheri after the gang-rape of a girl in Delhi in December 2012 According to police officials, the rape survivor left her residence on February 5 at 9.30am after having a quarrel with her parents. One of the accused in the case (name withheld as he is 17 years old and hence underage) met the victim and, on the pretext of providing her shelter, took her to a hotel in Raigad. An officer from the Thane Crime Branch, on condition of anonymity said, “After taking her to the hotel and bringing her under the influence of Meow Meow drug, the minor accused raped her in the hotel room. Following this, he informed one of his friends, Fahad Dhamse, about the incident. Dhamse reached the hotel and raped her too.” Later, the two accused decided to go home and left the survivor in custody of two other friends, Mohammad Javed Memom and Amjad Ali Sangram. They also raped her, after offering her the drug. The victim was, once again, handed over to the fifth accused, Akram Iqbal Khan, who took her to his Khopoli residence and raped her after offering her drugs,” explained an officer, on condition of anonymity. Meanwhile, on February 9, one of the survivor’s family members registered a case of kidnapping against Prashant Singh (22) at the Mumbra Police Satation. Singh, who got arrested on February 11, has been remanded to judicial custody by Thane court. His role in the crime is being investigated and Singh will be interrogated by the police soon. On February 10, the survivor called her mother and asked her to pick her up from Mumbra station. Assistant commissioner of Police Nagesh Lohar from the Thane Crime Branch said, “Initially, the case was being investigated by Mumbra police but later, the case was transferred to the Crime Branch on February 13. During investigations, we found several loopholes in the case and the incident of rape was brought to light later.” The five accused, who were absconding, got arrested from their respective residences and have been booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. They were produced in court and have been remanded to police custody till February 25.

TMC proposes weak budget: Residents Thursday, 19 February 2015 - 7:00am IST | Place: Thane | Agency: dna | From the print edition Naveeta Singh 4Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments As the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) presented its budget on Wednesday, it seemed that the budget, which has been tagged as a realistic budget, is more real while taxing Thanekars, but very hypothetical while giving back to them. TMC has proposed 5% increase in water benefit tax. Whereas, the water supply charges per month are based on the area of tenement for residences File Photo As the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) presented its budget on Wednesday, it seemed that the budget, which has been tagged as a realistic budget, is more real while taxing Thanekars, but very hypothetical while giving back to them. The civic body's budget for the year 2015-16 does not have much to offer to the residents of the lake city. They will be subjected to a five percent increase in water benefit tax, which has been proposed to rise from 7% to 12% for residential tenements and from 12% to 17% for commercial establishments. Even the sewerage tax has been proposed to increased by 5% (from 4% to 9%) for residences and (from 7.5% to 12.5%) for commercial spaces. Even the water supply charges have been introduced based on the area of tenement for residences. The monthly charges for a house of minimum 250 square feet to 2500 sq feet is in the range of Rs 200 to Rs 470. There are no such charges for commercial establishments. Moreover, there is a new Solid waste management charge for commercials establishments from small hotels, to hospitals and malls in the range of Rs500 to Rs45000. What the residents are likely to get are a 3600 square feet Old Thane theme park at Majiwada-Ghodbunder road, a traffic park at Kasarvadavli-Kavesar to create awareness about traffic rules, a bollywood park among others. To solve the parking problem in the city, road parking and off-street parking hve been proposed. All the above projects will be either on BoT(built operate transfer) or PPP (Public private participation) basis. Check water theft then increase water tax, say residents Reacting to this activist Satyajit Shah from Thane finds these revised water taxes ridiculous. "Rather than taxing people more on water usage, the TMC should stop wastage of water, illegal water connections and water theft and there should be full implementation of water harvesting system in the city," says Shah. Agrees Chandrahas Tawade, another city-based activist. "Before revising the water taxes, the TMC should have checked the water audit. According to a 2008 water audit report, out of the 406 MLD of water supplied to the city daily, only 285 MLD is charged," says he. "Water leakages and thefts should be checked and there should be periodical water audit before implementing these taxes," he adds. Even residents of Hiranandani estate like C N Shetty finds this water tax revision unjustified. "Most buildings in our area are surviving on water tankers as everyday we order two tankers daily. There is no shortage of water in Thane but we do not get it. Our monthly water tanker bills runs into lacs," says Shetty. "First TMC should make arrangements for water supply and then increase the charges rather than doing it arbitrarily," he says. Make parking lots compulsory in commercial establishments Shah feels that like Bangalore, all the new the commercial establishments in Thane should be made to have compulsory parking lots. "And if they are going to charge the citizens for parking, then even the cops, MPs, corporators vehicles should also be charged," he says. Playgrounds not theme parks needed Shah says that the city's children needs more playgrounds than theme park. "Instead of having an Old Thane theme park why not preserve Old Thane and give our children more playgrounds," he asks. Smart city? Last but not the least, the TMC's recent `Smart city' award given by Delhi's Smart city council has really amazed the residents and activists. "I do not know how Thane city can be awarded a smart city? There are no roads, no walkaways for pedestrains, no way for cyclists, no playgrounds, no parking. Still is a smart city," asks Shah. "I think the person who applied for this award and got it must be really smart," says he tongue in cheek. Even Tawade wants to know how come Thane has managed to get the award.

Thane GRP shows pics of 104 unclaimed bodies to get them identified Tuesday, 17 February 2015 - 6:15am IST | Agency: dna | From the print edition Arvind Walmiki 2Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments Officers say they plan to hold such camps daily at different stations Thane GRP personnel show commuters photographs of those who died on railway premises last year but haven’t yet been claimed In a bid to lessen the number of unclaimed bodies, the Thane government railway police (GRP) on Monday set up a camp at Thane station. From morning till 8 in the evening, its officers showed commuters photos of last year's 104 unclaimed deceased to see if any would get identified. Officers said in the coming days they will set up camps at other railway stations too. Thane railway jurisdiction covers Thane, Diva, Kalwa and Mumbra stations on the central line and Airoli on the harbour line. The GRP personnel said they plan to set up camps on one station daily to create awareness among commuters and take their help in getting as many deceased identified as possible. The officers said besides the photos, they have also kept a register for providing commuters any other details they may require in recognising the bodies. Inspector AS Rane said, "It's a good initiative, a number of commuters have approached us till now. Through this, we aim to help those who don't know for sure what happened to their loved ones and are still searching for them. Also, in case a person has died, getting the body identified and informing his/her family members means they can seek compensation from railways. Same goes for life insurance, in case the deceased had taken a policy which his/her kin can file a claim for." "We had undertaken a similar initiative last year, which helped us get identification for many unclaimed bodies. This year, apart from these camps that we will be holding, people can also log on to our official website www.shodh.gov.in for past records," said GRP commissioner R Singal. 2Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments Central lineGovernment Railway Police (GRP)RailwaysRailway policeBodiesRail Revolution

According to the police, the 45-year-old accused, identified as Mohan Lal Dev, was working as a watchman in Yahama Showroom in Thane, where he stole money worth Rs 8 lakh from the safety locker. Dev had gone missing since one month and fled to his home town in Uttar Pradesh. The investigations by the Thane police revealed Dev's current location and sent a police team headed by one inspector and two constables to his hometown in Jabalpur to apprehend him. They raided his house situated on the outskirts of Jabalpur on Saturday and arrested him on the spot. They even recovered cash worth Rs 2.5 lakh. The accused was presented before a local court and was supposed to be brought back to the city on Sunday. The three cops accompanied the accused and boarded Mumbai-bound Rajendranagar Express. As the train left Jabalpur station, the accused told the cops that he wanted to go to the washroom. To keep a watch on the accused, two constables accompanied him. As the trio reached near the door, the accused pushed them and in an attempt to flee, he jumped off the moving train. The constables panicked and pulled the chain to halt the train. They walked back to the spot where Dev had jumped off the train. After an hour's search, Dev was found lying in the bushes. He was bleeding continuously and was rushed to the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose hospital in Jabalpur. The accused sustained severe injuries and his condition is said to be critical. Senior inspector A B Kanhare from Jabalpur GRP confirmed, "The accused is in a critical condition. We have booked him for attempting suicide and preventing government officials from discharging their duty. Once he is out of danger, he will be shifted to Mumbai."

The proposal, however, will first have to be approved by the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission, which will conduct a public hearing from March 18 to April 10 across the state. MSEDCL has also proposed increasing usage categories to three – from the existing two – for consumers of up to 300 units. Most domestic consumers use between 100 and 300 units. The bracket for the first category has been brought down from 100 units to 75. The existing rate of Rs4.16 a unit for usage between 125 and 300 units has been proposed to be hiked to Rs5.55 to Rs7.10 a unit. The per unit rate for consumers using 301 to 500 units will also go up because of changes in computation methods.  “The total hike proposed is Rs4,717 crore for the 2015-16 fiscal. Although we have proposed restructuring categories, this will not affect lower income groups, as of our 1.60 crore domestic consumers, 1.25 crore use less than 125 units,” said an MSEDCL official. The rate for consumers below poverty line will not change, the official said. For industrial and commercial users, the proposed tariff cut is 5% and 3% on the existing rate of Rs8.50 and Rs12.82 a unit respectively. This translates to a drop of just 53 and 42 paise respectively. There are 12,500 large industrial consumers and three lakh small industrial units registered with MSEDCL across the state. Industrial and commercial organisations have been demanding a cut in power rates, as rates in neighbouring states are up to Rs2 lesser.“Whatever MSEDCL has proposed is not sufficient, as it serves no purpose. Our rates are around 25% higher than that of our neighbouring states. Our ultimate goal is to at least bring the tariff on par. This cannot happen overnight, but the state has to consider it seriously,” said Subhash Desai, state industries minister. TagsMumbai   also readHold on, Mumbai partygoers!

2015-02-16Maharashtra government wants Abu Salem to be moved
Maharashtra government wants Abu Salem to be moved to Thane from Taloja jail Tuesday, 17 February 2015 - 5:20am IST | Agency: dna | From the print edition Mustafa Plumber 2Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments The state government has moved the Bombay high court seeking to transfer gangster Abu Salem from Taloja prison to Thane, fearing a threat to his life inside the prison. The state government has moved the Bombay high court seeking to transfer gangster Abu Salem from Taloja prison to Thane, fearing a threat to his life inside the prison. Salem was on Monday convicted by a Special Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act (TADA) court for the 1995 murder of builder Pradeep Jain. A division bench of justices Ranjit More and Anuja Prabhudessai have posted the hearing on the application on Wednesday. Public prosecutor Sandeep Shinde said, "The government has received intelligence inputs that there is a threat to Salem's life inside the Taloja prison and to prevent this we want him to be moved to Thane central prison." Salem, who was deported in 2005 from Portugal, was lodged in Arthur Road jail's anda cell. But he was shifted from the high-security prison to Taloja central jail in Navi Mumbai after he was attacked in 2010 with a spoon, by alleged Dawood Ibrahim aide Mustafa Dossa, a co-accused in the 1993 serial bomb blasts case. The gangster had sustained injuries to his hand and face. However, on June 27, 2013, he was attacked again: he was allegedly shot at in Taloja jail by gangster Devendra Jagtap, an accused in the murder of advocate Shahid Azmi who had represented a 26/11 attacks suspect. Then, he was moved from Taloja to Thane prison, but last year the Special TADA court had directed the prison authorities to move him back to Taloja after he moved an application in this regard. But the government has challenged his stay in Taloja on the grounds that it would be in the interest of the accused to be moved back to Thane. 2Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments Abu SalemArthur Road JailBomb blastsBombay high courtDawood IbrahimGovernmentGangsterShahid AzmiState governmentTaloja jail
2015-02-16'Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon, 2015 Supports Or
'Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon, 2015 Supports Organ Donation': Niranjan Hiranandani Mumbai, Thane, Maharashtra, India With new flyovers and other critical infrastructure works getting completed, Thane, as a city and a real estate destination, is ‘packing a punch’. When it comes to health consciousness, as also supporting noble causes, citizens of Thane proved that they too have ‘come of age’, with the large participation in the Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon 2015. The event was held at Hiranandani Estate, Thane on 15 February 2015, under the aegis of Athletics Federation of India.   With the theme, ‘iRun for a new life’, Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon 2015 had four categories in this edition: Half Marathon - 21.097 km, Green Run - 10 km; Dream Run – 4 km and Junior Run - 3 km, said Niranjan Hiranandani, MD, Hiranandani Constructions Pvt Ltd (HCPL).   Anil Pawar winner for 21kms, second runner up L Baba Chandar and third runner up Sunil Prasad.   “This year, the race had twin objectives: charity and organ donation. The registration fee collected from participants will be donated to a charitable institution doing social work,” said Niranjan Hiranandani. “OXFAM India, Buniyaad and Concern India Foundation were Charity Partners this year,” he added.   The race also takes up a cause in the social sphere every year, pointed out Niranjan Hiranandani, and this year we chose the cause of Organ Donation. “Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon, 2015 supported Organ Donation, Mohan Foundation was the Organ Donation Partner.” he added.   “Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon 2015 was an initiative to awaken residents of Thane about the importance of maintaining their health and lifestyle. With busy schedules, work pressure and hectic lifestyles, we see that citizens tend to neglect their health. The ‘Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon 2015’, in a way, was a health wake-up call for residents,” said Niranjan Hiranandani. He added that Hiranandani Hospital was the Health Partner for the event; BAYER was the Associate Sponsor while ICICI Bank Home Loans was the Banking Partner. Striders, Times Red Cell, Rhythmic Running and Gurukul Sports Foundation were the Knowledge Partners while Haiko Supermarket was the Refreshments Partner.   “More than just health consciousness, it also took into account the urgent need for increased public awareness regarding organ donation. Greater effort needs to be taken to dispel public concerns regarding the same. Organ donation can give a new twist to tragedy, and the message that went out through the event was that everyone can take a step towards making someone’s life better, by thinking positively about donating our organs – and taking concrete steps in the direction,” he added.   Those who because of the event, were motivated to register as organ donors, have taken up the thought in the right spirit – we have 2002 donors who have enrolled for organ donation, that is a race well run indeed,” concluded Niranjan Hiranandani.

2015-02-15Thane: Rape accused threatens survivor to withdraw
Thane: Rape accused threatens survivor to withdraw complaint By Shirish Vaktania |Posted 5 hours Mumbra-based builder Mohsin Khan sent his goons to beat up the girl’s parents who met the Additional Commisioner of Police, Vikas Patil. The family is now under police protection A builder, who is accused in a rape case in Mumbra, allegedly threatened the 16-year-old survivor’s parents. According to the Mumbra police, the builder’s goons attacked the girl’s parents and threatened to kill them if they did not withdraw the complaint. The family has received police protection since Friday night. The accused, identified as Mohsin Khan, is a local builder and resident of Mumbra. In 2011, Khan allegedly raped the teenager after calling her to his office on the pretext of speaking to her about a wiring problem in her house. Later, Khan threatened the survivor on a regular basis but the police failed to take any action against him. According to the police, Khan sent 10 goons to the survivor’s residence on February 9, who beat up the girl’s mother with sticks and hurt her on her head. The next day, Khan, along with the goons, went to the girl’s residence and threatened her father to withdraw the case. They also beat him up and his left hand was fractured. The same day, the survivor’s parents went to Mumbra police station to register a complaint but the police only registered a non-cognisable offence. Later, her family met ACP Vikas Patil. Since Friday night, the family is under police protection. Senior Police Inspector Shrinivas Munde of Mumbra police station said, “We have registered a non-cognisable offence and attached it with the rape case which was registered earlier by the survivor’s family.” RB Patil, the Thane session court advocate fighting the case on their behalf, said, “The police should file an FIR against the accused instead of filing a non-cognisable offence. On Monday, we will request the court to cancel the accused’s bail and take strict action against him.”

Mhatre was arrested last night after Rajendra's body was recovered from a drain in Murbad following which the hunt for the killer began, he said. Both the victim and the accused were residents of Navrivili village of Murbad. The accused has been charged under sections 302 and 201 B of the IPC and various sections of the Arms Act, police said. The dispute between the duo was regarding a sale of plot to Mhatre for Rs 20.36 lakhs by the victim. Mhatre had already made a part payment of Rs 5 lakh for the purchase but Rajendra's continuous demand for the balance annoyed him following which he decided to kill him.

The festival titled 'Thane Festival, 2015' was flagged off by kids from city orphanages. The event began with placing a garland around the statute of Shivaji. Multi-coloured balloons were released in the air to signify the various forms of art. Youngsters carrying placards with various social messages took out a procession earlier in the day. Various bands struck a chord with the audience who put their best step forward. Special students from Jidd school also performed a short skit. The festival was thrown open to all those are passionate about music, painting, photography, etc. Half of Parsik Road has been transformed into a vibrant place with works of famous artists like Shashikant Dhotre and Jayram Gopale on display. Well known singers also sang some foot-tapping numbers. The first two days saw the outstanding performances of Roopkumar Rathod, Niladri Kumar, Suchmismita Das, Prahlad Tipanya and the likes. To add to the glamour quotient, fashion photographer Atul Kasbekar held an interactive session with the audience on Friday. B-Boying competitions and performances by Marathi rock bands were some of the main attractions on Friday and Saturday. "I plan to make it an annual event. This belt has always remained starved of such activity. However, from this year, residents are able to showcase their talent in the city itself,'' said NCP leader Jitendra Awhad, the brain behind the event. On Sunday, singers like Gauri Kavi, Varsha Jalani, Goving Mishra and many more will be performing. Besides, street plays and bhajans will also be a highlight of the finale. Shashikant Dhotre, who is on a 18-month whirlwind tour of the nation exhibiting his best for the art lovers said, ''I showcased my work at the festival as I want more people and budding artists from small towns and big cities to see and feel a real painting. It is just an exercise for the cause of art.''

No other news could put more of a damper on the most romantic day of the year. If you live in Thane and are planning to get hitched on Valentine's Day, you will have to change your dates because the marriage registration office will be shut this February 14th. The marriage registrar office in Thane remains shut on every 2nd and 4th Saturday. Unfortunately, this year, V-Day too falls on a 2nd Saturday, with couples having no other option but to choose another date. Bharat Jadhav, officer-in-charge (marriage), said, "We are not working on Valentine's Day. Many couples had come to the office to book the date. So far, 13 couples have registered to get married on 15th February." Many couples were disappointed by the news. Avik Patel and Vidyuta Mali said, "We had planned in advance and made preparations that we will get married on 14th February. We were quite upset on hearing the news. We have shifted the date to the 15th." The same situation had taken place in 2010. "I wanted make the day special for Vidyuta but it seems that fate has different plans," said Avik. While couples will lose out on a Valentine's Day wedding, the office too will lose out on the additional revenue it usually generates on this day. 0Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments Marriage registrationThaneValentine's DayMarriage

It will have additional arms — one running from Shivaji Chowk and the other towards Nashik highway. While the flyover is expected to be completed by the end of March, the additional arms are likely to be completed before monsoon, officials said. "The flyover will provide great relief to commuters and ease movement of traffic to and from the busy powerloom city," said Dilip Kawathkar, joint project director, MMRDA. "With a rise in population and job opportunities, the MMRDA has taken a few steps to provide the required infrastructure in the area and the flyover is part of the same. Vanjarpatti is a major junction where heavy-duty vehicles from Nasik to Wada and to other industrial areas cause traffic chaos leading to accidents. The flyover will come as a major relief to motorists," he added. The cost of the flyover along with the additional arms is pegged at Rs 62 crore.

Cops arrest perverts who molested Thane teenager By Sailee Dhayalkar |Posted 6 hours The 13-year-old victim registered a complaint against the three men who misbehaved with her on Friday afternoon. They were produced in court yesterday The Kasarwadawali police have arrested the three men who molested a 13-year-old girl in Thane on Friday afternoon. The accused,  identified as Avtar Singh, 27, Jasbir Singh, 23, and Mangaljit Singh, 38, are originally from Punjab and stay at Guruwada at Dongripada, Thane. On Saturday, they were presented at Thane court, where members from Shiv Sena’s women wing raised slogans against the accused, asking maximum punishment for the men. A screen grab shows Jasbir Singh waving two swords in the air  before being nabbed by the police The incidentOn Friday, the victim — a Class 9 student — registered a complaint with a police after she was molested by the three men at Dogripada, Thane. In her statement, she told the police  that she had stayed back at school for extra classes and was returning home, when the accused coming from the opposite direction started misbehaving with her. She started screaming which caught the attention of passersby and soon, a crowd gathered. Sensing trouble, Avtar and Managaljit managed to flee, while the third accused Jasbir entered the Gurunanak Darbar Gurudwara and emerged holding two swords. As he swung the swords wildly, a 15-year-old boy, Sahil Srisath, was badly hurt. The police was called and they managed to nab the trio. A woman said: “We saw the girl screaming and realised that the men had misbehaved with her. When we called the police, they dismissed the matter as a small issue but when we called them the second time saying that a girl had been molested, they agreed to come to the spot.” The victim told sunday mid-day, “My teacher was only 10 steps behind me when she saw me crying. She called my mother and when she arrived, the three of us went to the police station to the file the complaint.” A senior police inspector from Kasarwadawali police said: “We have lodged a complaint against them under molestation, voluntarily causing hurt, arms act and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. We will investigate whether they are history sheeters or if they involved in any crime in Punjab, where they belong.”

Former encounter specialist is BJP's Thane man By Vinay Dalvi |Posted 6 hours Ravindra Angre, who joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on February 1, is being looked upon as the man to take on Shiv Sena and NCP in the Thane Municipal elections to be held in 2017 With former encounter specialist Ravindra Angre joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the party is fielding him as their man to contest the Thane Municipal elections in February 2017 and fight the Shiv Sena and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). He is also being considered for Thane’s BJP president’s post. BJP, which is facing stiff competition from Shiv Sena in the area, has put up posters of Angre holding a gun all over Thane. Ravindra Angre’s posters shows him holding a gun to finish off his rivals. Pic/Vinay Dalvi Angre, a 1983 batch police inspector, joined BJP on February 1. In his tenure, he shot dead 54 gangsters, including the famous underworld don Suresh Machekar and destroyed gangster Amar Naik’s gang. BJP plans to field him against Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde, who has a strong hold on the Thane, Kalyan and Dombivli belt. Shinde had allegedly helped builders Mahesh Wagh and Ganesh Wagh file a case against Angre, when he was in the police force, because of which the latter was imprisoned was 14 months. Angre told sunday mid-day, “NCP has leaders like Jitendra Awhad who has a great grip on Thane and Shiv Sena has Eknath Shinde. We are trying to establish the party in Thane.” With Angre  on their side, the BJP is trying to fight the NCP and Shiv Sena all alone, and is likely to not form an alliance with the latter. “I am starting a membership drive from Tuesday and have full support from Maharashtra Chief Raosaheb Danve,” said Angre. Meanwhile, his supporters have put up banners of Angre holding a gun with a message that Angre, who had finished the underworld from Thane, will now finish his rivals. Tainted pastFifty-eight-year-old Angre was arrested for threatening local builders Mahesh and Ganesh Wagh in June 2010. He was later reinstated into the force and transferred to Gadchiroli. DGP Sanjeev Dayal transferred Angre as he thought the encounter specialist  could be of great help to the local police. However, Angre refused to accept the transfer, following which he was dismissed from service in June 2014.

However, people are still troubled by the amount of time it takes to get work done at the Thane RTO.Wallace D’Mello, 41, has been visiting the Thane RTO from Borivali since the last three days to get a second-hand tempo transferred in his name. “I came here on Saturday, at noon, and stood at window number 24 till 2 pm, only to be told that my documents will be processed once the current owner confirms that he has paid taxes for the vehicle. On Monday, I came with the confirmation and joined a queue at 2 pm. At 4 pm, when my turn came, I was told that they do not accept forms after 2:30 pm. On Tuesday, I entered the office at 11 am and stood in a queue at window number 13 and my turn came at 2 pm. The official at the counter asked me to return at 4 pm. When I returned at 4 pm, my turn came at 4:45 pm. Fortunately, my documents were processed yesterday and I have been asked to pay transfer charges today. I will end up spending an entire day in the RTO office again today,” said D’Mello.However, it is not just the slow speed of work, bureaucracy and long queues that troubles visitors. The RTO does not have a parking facility. D’Mello’s two-wheeler was towed away twice from near the office. “I had to pay a fine of Rs 200 on Saturday as well as Monday. On Tuesday, I requested the residents of a co-operative housing society to let me park in their society premises,” he said.Long queues at various counters force people to wait for their turn while enduring the sun’s glare and heat. Baliram Mhatre, 40, an autorickshaw driver, said, “They should either make the process available online or hire more staff. Also, instead of sending people from one window to another, they should allow all procedures to be done at one window. If people keep visiting the office for an entire week because of the slow speed of work done here, how will they earn their daily bread and butter?”Authorities claim that they are guiding people properly and there have been no problems yet. “We have put up boards and started enquiry counters to help people. The staff is co-operating with visitors. However, the area outside windows does need to get covered so that people are not inconvenienced. We will speak to the Public Works Department about this,” said Hemangini Patil deputy RTO.

Five constables from Kopri Police Station in Thane (E) have been booked for dacoity, after they 'raided' a club in the area in the early hours of Wednesday, and cleaned out the cash counter of Rs 5 lakh. According to the complaint filed by Babu Nadar, owner of the club in Thane, which was previously called A1 Social Club, five constables -- Mayur Thonge, Sandeep Desai, Swapnil Tajne ,Vijendra Kadam and Vinod Nemane - arrived at the club around 1 am and said they had information that gambling on cards was taking place inside. The complaint said that the constables ransacked the club, 'arrested' the owner, and took away cash from the counter. "They told me I was being taken to the police station. On the way, however, they told me I was being given a last chance and they won't be arresting me," Nadar said in his complaint. Convinced the raid was not genuine, Nadar contacted officers at Kopri Police Station, who confirmed no such raid had been ordered. The cops, meanwhile, were captured by the CCTV cameras from an adjacent Gurudwara. Police first arrested the informer who had accompanied the cops to the club, then traced their location to a restaurant. The five cops, and their informer, were arrested in a matter of hours, an officer from Kopri Police Station said. "We have the CCTV camera footage and other evidence," the officer said. Deputy Commissioner of Police Vilasrao Chandanshive confirmed the action against the cops and said, "Investigations are on."

The unavailability of parking facility leaves commuters with no option but to park vehicles on the road, often causing traffic jams.Residents have made repetitive demands about a parking area near the station. Sanjana Bangare, 38, resident of Vartak Nagar, frequents the railway station on her two-wheeler. “I park my vehicle on the side of a road. Usually, it is towed away and I have to undergo the hassle of retrieving it from the traffic police’s office and pay hefty fines. If there is no parking area, why is it my fault?” said Bangare.Taking into consideration the grievances of local residents, Sanjay More, mayor of Thane, said that there are plans in the pipeline to construct a parking lot at Gaondevi ground. “The parking lot at Gaondevi ground will be an underground one. I will bring up the issue during a general body meeting. Once it gets sanction, we will issue tenders. The project will run on Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) basis,” said More.

The 18-year-old then approached Pune-based Savitri Forum, requesting them to set up a Braille section at his college library in Thane. A student of VPM’s KG Joshi Arts College and NG Bedekar College of Commerce, he can’t believe that his wish has materialised so soon. Patil says, “I want to be a teacher as I feel that India lacks quality teachers. I am aware that being visually challenged will have an effect on my prospects but I believe that blind students must be positive and help out others who are in need.”Savitri Forum spreads smilesThis is not the first time that Rashmi Pandhare of Savitri forum has brought smiles to several visually challenged students. She narrates, “We set up our first Braille library in Pandharpur. We had plans to start a centre in Pune but I then got a call from Shivam asking us to set up such a section at his college library.” Pandhare said that even the college provided full assistance in setting up the Braille section. Savitri Forum has supplied several books to the library.  Swagat Thorat, editor-in-chief, Reliance Drishti and Sparshdnyan newspaper was also present at the inauguration of the library. He added, “It is a good that visually challenged students have access to quality books which they can read independently. Students can read works of several famous Marathi authors that are stocked in this section.” Vijay Bedekar, chairman, VPM college, said, “I am proud of this initiative. I wonder now why we took so long in making it a reality. We will focus on improving the quality of books stocked in the coming years. This library is meant for not just the visually challenged students enrolled in our college but also to other visually challenged students who want to read more.” Wednesday, 04 February 2015 - 8:21pm IST | Rupali Shinde | Edited by: Disha Shetty #Vijay Bedekar #Sparshdnyan #Reliance Drishti #Rashmi Pandhare #Thane #Braille Library #Visually Challenged #Savitri Forum #VPM #KG Joshi Arts College and NG Bedekar College of Commerce X What's happening in your neighbourhood?

Updated: Stranded hikers off Thane area mountain ridge By Matt MillerPosted on February 2, 2015 at 12:55 pmCategory: Featured News, Search & Rescue Estimated reading time: 1 minute, 33 seconds Share This Post Tweet A mountain ridge above Thane. The hikers were stranded near this area. (Photo by Lisa Phu/KTOO) Update Feb. 2, 2015 4:31 pm Alaska State Troopers report that the four hikers were helped off the mountain by Juneau Mountain Rescue at about 12:35 pm Monday and taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for medical evaluation. They were identified as 27-year-old Matthew Callahan, 30-year-old Amy Helm, 32-year-old Craig Helm, and 23-year-old Schuyler Metcalf. All four hikers are Juneau residents. Sgt. Matt Hightower says he could not divulge detailed medical information, but the hikers appeared to sustain cold weather related injuries. After quick debrief with the hikers, Hightower says he was told that they used some rocks at their camp as a partial shelter from the wind. Original story Feb. 2, 2015 12:55 pm Rescuers are trying to help four hikers stranded Sunday afternoon on a mountainside near Thane. Alaska State Trooper Sgt. Matt Hightower says two teams from Juneau Mountain Rescue were dispatched for a potential rescue. He says the first team has already made contact with the hikers and they’re trying to determine how to safely get off the ridge near Little Sheep Creek. Hightower says the hikers are likely cold and may be suffering from possible frostbite, but no other serious injuries have been reported. “My understanding is high winds came up and they didn’t feel safe to move off the ridge,” Hightower says. Hightower declined to immediately identify the hikers as not all family had been notified and the rescue is in progress. It’s unclear what kind of gear the hikers may have had before they got stuck on Sunday. Officials at the Coast Guard Command Center said early Monday morning that they tried to use an H-60 helicopter to airlift the hikers near the 3,615-foot summit of West Peak on Sunday night. But high winds prevented the pickup.

Interestingly, support for AAP is pouring in from Thane, with contributions amounting to Rs8 lakh. Rajesh Unikrishnan, district convener, AAP Thane shared that money mattered a great deal during elections, adding: "While the party is receiving donations, supporters and other members from Thane have contributed Rs8 lakh towards the expenses during elections." In fact, the supports aren't contributing merely financially. AAP members from the city have made the maximum calls compared to other states, for the 'Call Delhi' campaign – 13737 in total. The convener said: "It is similar to the door-to-door campaign, but meant for those AAP supporters who cannot campaign on the ground." Unikrishnan added that AAP members have been leaving for the capital in small groups, to share responsibility during the elections. He added: "The last group of 8-10 people left for Delhi on Saturday and will return only after elections." The AAP Thane convener is very positive about his party's win in the Delhi elections, but supporters should keep their fingers crossed, because it is no secret that in politics, the equation changes every minute. 4Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments AAPBhartiya Janta PartyDelhi Election 2015campaignThane

Thane elderly falls in pit dug up for road repair, dies Tuesday, 3 February 2015 - 6:35am IST | Agency: dna | From the print edition Arvind Walmiki 4Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments A 70-year-old Kalwa resident died on Sunday evening after she fell into a pit dug up for road repair work in Kharegaon. Identified as Shantabai Rathod, the woman was on her way home. Relatives of the 70-year-old deceased and Kalwa residents at the area’s police station A 70-year-old Kalwa resident died on Sunday evening after she fell into a pit dug up for road repair work in Kharegaon. Identified as Shantabai Rathod, the woman was on her way home. Angry relatives who had approached the Kalwa police station are upset that a day after the incident the police have made no move to take action against those carrying out the repairs for leaving the pit fenceless and without any warning. The Kalwa police have registered an accidental death case as of now and are investigating further. Shantabai's grandson Vinod said, "There's some or the other work being carried out on the road all the time and there isn't any proper lighting there either. I am sure my granny must have fallen in because of the darkness. Also, none of the gathered locals tried to rescue her. She was inside for two hours before a relative of ours, who was passing by, saw her and jumped in." "The pipe in the pit must have led to her death. I want justice... There is no fencing around the pit, not even a stone to alert locals. The contractor should be taken into custody. The work has been going on for the past six months and yet there's been no improvement in the condition of the road," he added. Senior inspector J Babar said, "We are investigating the case thoroughly. After going through all the possibilities, we will zero in on who is the accused and make the arrest accordingly." 4Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments accidental deathdeath caserepair workroad repair work

Police personnel have been deployed at the RTO and CCTV cameras have been installed in the premises.It may be recalled that according to an order by the state government, RTOs all over Maharashtra cannot allow agents within the office premises. Sanjay Dole, RTO, Thane, said, “We check identity cards to ensure that agents do not enter the office. Policemen have been stationed inside and outside the office and CCTV cameras have been installed at various locations. We are accepting applications from registered transport unions and automobile dealers, however, only one person from such an organisation can put in an application. Due to this rule, a fight took place between an agent and an automobile dealer, after which, we found it necessary to increase security.”People, standing in long queues at the RTO, expressed support for the move. Madhukar Sarjine, 42, felt that an agent-free RTO would strengthen effectiveness in the office.

2015-02-02Mumbai: Sand mining killing mangroves near Thane -
Mumbai: Sand mining killing mangroves near Thane Snehal Rebello, Hindustan Times, Mumbai | Updated: Feb 02, 2015 10:29 IST Even as the world celebrated World Wetlands Day on Monday, destruction of the coastal ecosystem continues in and around Mumbai. This almost a year after the Bombay high court (HC) ordered an interim ban on construction and reclamation of wetlands. Every year, February 2 is observed as World Wetlands Day, to mark the adoption of the Ramsar Convention 1971, which is an intergovernmental treaty providing the framework for national action and international cooperation for wetland conservation in India. This time around, it’s along the right side of the Kasheli creek bridge on the Thane-Bhiwandi highway where mangroves have been chopped and wetland reclaimed by  dumping debris. “Some local sand miners from Balkum village are reclaiming the wetland to start a sand storage facility,” said Nandakumar Pawar of non-government organisation Shree Ekvira Aai Pratishthan, which has written to the state mangrove cell. With sand mining at the Kasheli creek, wetlands have been reclaimed over the years to create pathways for trucks that ply sand extracted from the creek.  “A team of officials will soon visit the site,” said N Vasudevan, chief conservator of forests (mangrove cell). Following a public interest litigation by non-government organisation Vanashakti, the Bombay high court in March last year passed an interim order banning reclamation of wetlands across the state. Activists, however, claim the ban remains only on paper. “The statutory agencies have completely neglected their promise to the high court. All the sites that were inspected, and a copy of the report submitted to the high court, are being destroyed brazenly,” said Stalin D of Vanashakti.
