Thane students design unique portable charger Thursday, 30 July 2015 - 8:00am IST | Agency: dna | From the print edition Padmja Sinha Sixteen-year-olds Anay Tamhane and Sharvin Joshi from the Children's Tech Centre in Thane are the creators. The two said they felt the need to come up with something like this after having to put up with dead phones during a recent trekking excursion. The portable charger converts mechanical energy into electrical How many times has this happened to you — travelling with an out-of-charge mobile phone with no plug points around? Have you wished that if only you had even a little bit charge left in the phone, you could just inform your loved ones so they don't worry? Keeping these problems in mind, two teenagers have designed a portable charger which works on mobile phones and tablets. Th equipment, which converts mechanical energy into electrical, needs to be rotated manually to generate power. So you can keep it moving depending on how much charge you need at a particular moment. Sixteen-year-olds Anay Tamhane and Sharvin Joshi from the Children's Tech Centre in Thane are the creators. The two said they felt the need to come up with something like this after having to put up with dead phones during a recent trekking excursion. Tamhane and Joshi completed the project in three-and-a-half months with help from their teacher and founder-director of the institute Purushottam Pachpande. Tamhane said, "We ourselves have faced the problem... Hence, we thought of making such a charger." "The Nepal earthquake tragedy also pushed us to create this. In calamities such as that one, even though government restores power to mobile towers, most residents don't have access to electricity. So this charger can come in handy," said Joshi. The duo is working on a bigger version which can charge the battery of DSLR cameras.

2015-07-30Thane college authorities try incresing their comf
Thane college authorities try incresing their comfort level Shrutika Sukhi , Freny Fernandes, TNN | Jul 30, 2015, 03.51PM IST THANE: Anxiety, confusion as well as excitement grasp young Thaneites who have behind the sheltered walls of their schools and taken their first step into the new college world. While experiencing a wave of freedom, these youngsters are burdened with added responsibilities about their career path and life. Tanvi Sayyad (16), a first year student at Pace Junior College, Thane is awaiting the first day of her college life with mixed reactions. "While I'll be free to wear clothes of my choice and bunk classes that I dislike, I will be responsible for my study notes and examination grades. I will miss the warmth that that was part of our sheltered school environment and the teachers support in every aspects of our life, while at the same time look forward to the professional training given in college," Sayyad said. For many who have already started their junior college classes, making new friend has proved to be a major cause of concern. "For the first few days of my college I was too shy to speak to anybody. In school, everybody knew each other. Here, we have to not only get used to a whole load of responsibilities, but also create an identity for ourselves. I was waiting for college since I was in in class VII. Two days into college life, I was missing my school days," said Jai Shinde, a first year student residing in Vasant Vihar. Understanding the complexities faced by these youngsters, city college authorities are working overtime to make them comfortable in their new environment. Parmeshwar Gatkal, principal of Shubham Raje Junior College here said "We give our students complete freedom when it comes to dressing clothes, although no one wears shorts or sleeveless. However, we do have seminars for them where we tell them about local and national news. We also discuss with them about the good and bad in the society, thus giving them a sense of responsibility coupled with freedom." While city colleges which have schools attached to them follow particular dress codes, they make additional efforts to guide new students. RJ Rajput, principal of MH High School and Junior College here, said, "We spend the first two days of college interacting with the students, acquainting them with the faculty and making them comfortable. As everything is new to them we spend the time explaining the syllabus and showing educational documentaries." The college has a uniform for children wherein the girls wear salwar kurta and the boys wear full pant and shirt." Some schools authorities believe imposing strict rules on these new collegians is the only way of preparing them for the world. "The students have a uniform wherein the girls wear grey skirt and top and the boys wear white shirt and grey pants. Unlike other colleges we don't give much freedom to them as there is a chance that they might get bad company. We are very particular about their attendance and call their homes is they miss school for three days in a row," said Neenu Lamba, principal of Hiranandani Foundation School and Jr. College. Students of these schools seem to have lesser 1st day anxiety pangs than those who have enrolled in colleges different from their schools. "My junior college is the same as my school, making college life less stressful for me. Having the same group of friends in the same college with the same teachers, I am well within my comfort zone. This has made it easier for me to concentrate on my new colleg syllabus," said Nayanika Das (16), a first year student at Sulochanadevi Singhania Junior College here.

Some city schools are even organizing science related events during the coming days to commemorate his life and passions. Ranjini Krishnaswami, director of Billabong International School here said, "The demise of Dr Kalam has left a huge crater in the field of education and science. We garlanded his photograph and kept a two-minute-silence in his memory followed by a discussion on his contribution not only to the nation as a political leader, but also as a scientist who was passionate about education." "We are also planning to hold science related activities for the students in his memory this week," she added. Krishnaswami also read out to the students a letter written to her by Dr Kalam in response to a book written by the students of a school she earlier headed. In Hiranandani Foundation School here, it was the students who expressed their strong sentiments on the passing of their idol. "We usually start our day with prayers and a pre-planned speech on a renowned personality. However, our three class VIII students and the head-girl put that speech aside and poured their hearts out on the loss of Dr Kalam. They spoke about the inspiration he had given them to pursue their dreams and remember that the process of seeking knowledge is never-ending," said Megha Gadge, the sports coach at HFS. The students and teachers of St John the Baptist School, who offered a prayer service to the departed scientist, will continue the tribute ceremony on Wednesday as well. "After holding a prayer service as a tribute to Dr Kalam, we spoke to the students about his passion for education. We will continue this discussion tomorrow as well. We will also hold a stall dedicated to him in our exhibition next month," said Fr Michael Pinto, the principal of the school. The news of the sad demise of Dr. Kalam has also hit the members of the Jidnyasa Trust here, who have personally worked with the former president on the project of the National Children's Science Congress. "I was fortunate enough to have very close interaction with him on various occasions thanks to Children Science Congress. In year 2007 when our trust was the host, he was the guest of honour. I was his official escort for the Mumbai Indian Science event in January this year. Prof Kalam was the humblest person I have ever met. He was our Rushi and Dnyan yogi. This loss will never be compensated," said Surrendra Dighe, trustee of the Jidnyasa Trust.

They survived Tuesday night’s tragedy. Written by Mohamed Thaver | Mumbai | Published:July 30, 2015 2:00 am After a nine-hour operation, the rescue team had managed to locate and pull out 19 persons from below the debris, but nine of them succumbed to their injuries. (Deepak Joshi) There were clear and unambiguous signs that ‘Matru Krupa’ building in Thakurli, about 30 km from Mumbai, was going to collapse. On Saturday, the kitchen slab of room no. 4 on the ground floor collapsed. Sharda Yadav, 40, a homemaker who lived in that flat, approached the owners of the building. She got what residents say is a stock reply from the landlord — “get it repaired”. Without financial resources to undertake repairs, the Yadavs looked for an alternative home and on Sunday moved to an adjacent building. They survived Tuesday night’s tragedy. “On Sunday, people from our locality kept telling us to move out of the building, as slabs were collapsing. After a day of looking around, someone from the adjacent building gave us a room. Another family from our building also moved out and thus got saved,” Yadav told The Indian Express. Huge cracks had developed near the staircase of the building as well, said resident Chandrashekar Mahaltkar, whose two daughters were injured in the collapse. Shruti Sawant, another homemaker living in one of the nine tenements that survived the collapse said that despite the poor condition, the landlords continued to let out houses to new tenants. Yadav said the top floors collapsed “like a lift coming down”. She said, “One moment we were shouting ‘uncle come down’ ‘bhabhi come down’ standing on the ground and the very next moment the structure gave way.” The residents who could not make it out in time were shouting that the staircase is damaged, she said. “The grill on the ground floor kept bending and finally broke after which the entire structure came crashing down. It was horrible.

Will sell Thane SEZ flats only to IT staffers from the area, developer assures tribunal Clara Lewis, TNN | Jul 29, 2015, 04.12AM ISTS MUMBAI: Developer Hubtown Group has given an undertaking to the National Green Tribunal that they will sell flats in their proposed Sunstream City project in the IT special economic zone (SEZ) at Kopri in Thane (E) to only those working in IT companies within the project area. In 2013, the area was given the status of IT SEZ and several sheds were constructed. Paryavaran Dakshata Manch, a Thane-based environment advocacy group, in 2014, filed a plea before the NGT for restoration of wetlands in Kopri village, Thane (E) and reversal of CRZ notification from CRZ III back to CRZ I. The advocacy group had recently brought to the notice of the NGT an advertisement announcing the construction of a residential project in the area and expressed fear that third party interests would be created. An advocate for the project proponent told the NGT that flats would not be sold to those working in IT firms outside the area or in other places. D Stalin, director, NGO Vanashakti, said that in 2006, the Union ministry of environment and forests had initially rejected the Rs 3,000-crore SEZ as the project site (54.23 hectares) was on land classified as CRZ I. Subsequently, on recommendation of the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority, the ministry allowed the site to be reclassified as CRZ III (relatively undisturbed coastal zone, including rural coasts) and approved the SEZ project in December 2006.
2015-07-28AVP Pro Volleyball Takes NYC - Huffington Post
AVP Pro Volleyball Takes NYC Posted: 07/28/2015 5:00 pm EDT Updated: 07/28/2015 5:00 pm EDT With the Freedom Tower sparkling in the background like a lighthouse and the Henry Hudson shimmering in the sun, the world's best beach volleyball players brought the spirit of Southern California to Manhattan as the AVP Kingston New York City Open concluded last weekend at Hudson River Park's Pier 26.In the men's division, the top-seeded team, Jake Gibb and Casey Patterson, defeated the number two-seeded Ryan Doherty and John Mayer 19-21, 21-15, 15-12 in a Sunday three-game scorcher. It was the fifth straight AVP title for Gibb and Patterson, extending their match win streak to 25 straight and marking their 10th AVP Tour championship as a team. And just think: Before they became such a dominant force on the AVP Tour, they won their very first tournament back in 2009 when the AVP brought its tour to Coney Island as one of its East Coast stops. Gibb and Patterson, in spite of their Southern California, surfer charm, are practically adopted sons of New York City.On the women's side, the number two-seeded Jen Kessy and Emily Day, playing together only for the second time on the AVP Tour, also needed three tight, grueling games to defeat the number four-seeds, Nicole Branagh and Jenny Kropp, 22-24, 19-21, 23-21. It was the 15th AVP title for Kessy, who won a silver Olympic medal in London, and it was also her first win after having a baby. It was Day's second AVP title.This was the first time the AVP Tour showcased in Manhattan in its 33-year history. In addition to Coney Island, the Jersey Shore has also hosted the tour over the years. This year's AVP Kingston New York City Open was the only stop the tour would make in the Northeast, and it was only the second tournament on the 2015 schedule so far, which is this week headed to Seattle, then onto Manhattan Beach, California, Chicago, Cincinnati, and winding up in Huntington Beach, California--the putative home of this sand-caked, sunbaked sport.And, yet, surrounded by the skyline of lower Manhattan and with the rolling Hudson River standing in for the gnarly surf of the Pacific, beach volleyball looked perfectly at home on this picturesque island where board shorts are usually not as visible as three-piece suits. And these long-bodied, professional volleyball players diving on and digging themselves out of the sand looked positively native on an island far better known for its more treacherous concrete and potholes.Stadium Court was packed solid for the semifinals and finals of last week's AVP Kingston NYC stop, proving once again that beach volleyball is one of the most fan-friendly and exciting sports around. It also proves that time-crunched and smartphone-obsessed New Yorkers know when to chill and admire the balletic beauty of a Southern California treasure.

2015-07-27Thane to start auto-rickshaws driven by women | La
Thane to start auto-rickshaws driven by women Monday, 27 July 2015 - 5:05pm IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: iamin.in Rupali Shinde Now, there will be few auto-rickshaws that will be exclusively reserved for women auto drivers in Thane. This move has been made in the wake of the recent attacks against women commuters. The Thane transport department has got a nod from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Transport Authority (MMRTA) to start the ladies special autos in the city. However, the proposal has also left many women disappointed, who wish to drive these autos. Jyoti Chandrakant Bhoye talking with iamin said, We won't get our own permits to drive these autos in the city. We can only rent them from male passengers who already have permits. This way, most of our earned money would go in paying the rent. We need to get permits also. Mean while, Hemangini Patil, deputy transport officer, Thane, said, Interested women can come to RTO for license and badge and they have to be a class 8 pass-out at least. We will not issue separate permits for women. They will have to run the autos of men only if they are interested to lend. The RTO is planning to release 3,746 permits through a lottery system for interested women drivers.

Murder convict attempts suicide in Thane jail Nishikant Karlikar, TNN | Jul 27, 2015, 05.35PM IST THANE: A murder convict allegedly attempted suicide inside the premises of the Thane central jail on Saturday but was saved by inmates who alerted the prison staff. According to the police, Ramu Soma Pawar, who is serving a life sentence, hid a bedsheet under his shirt and headed to a secluded spot behind barrack 6. He allegedly climbed a tree and used the bedsheet to tie the noose. However, some inmates spotted him in the act and alerted the prison staff, who rushed to the spot and brought the convict down. He was taken to the Thane civil hospital and is now out of danger. The police said that Pawar allegedly informed the prison staff that he was severely depressed due to the life sentence awarded to him. He was convicted by the Thane sessions court for killing Shankar pawar of Datesh Khurd village. Pawar has appealed to the Bombay high court against the conviction. A case of attempted suicide has been registered as per the complaint given by Vishal Bandal, a prison officer at the Thane central jail.
2015-07-27Peon held for accepting Rs 30 as bribe in Thane |
Peon held for accepting Rs 30 as bribe in Thane Jul 27, 2015 | Age Correspondent | mumbai Officials of the Thane unit of Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) caught a peon from the municipal corporation redhanded while taking a bribe of Rs 30 on Sunday. The officials were acting on a complaint received by financially weak hawkers from a market place in the Mira-Bhayendar belt, Thane rural on the peon collecting weekly haftas (bribes). Interestingly, there are around 1,000 odd hawkers in the market area and they earn thousands per week as bribes. By rule, the municipal corporation has to collect a bazaar fee of `25 from each hawker on every Sunday. But the arrested accused Rakesh Karbhari Tribhuvan (25) collected `30 to `40 from each of the hawkers often without issuing a receipt for the amount. He would then pocket the money. Tribhuvan works as a peon in the tax department of the corporation. After receiving the complaint, the ACB found that he was collecting bribes along with a private person identified only as Dutta. Dutta works for a private contractor who was entrusted with the work of collecting the bazaar fee. After Dutta's role was ascertained, he has been made a co-accused in the case. Tribhuvan has been arrested and will be produced before a magistrate court.
2015-07-27Thane lad who spent 15 years plucking tea leaves j
Thane lad who spent 15 years plucking tea leaves joins IIM-L Isha Jain, TNN | Jul 27, 2015, 10.39PM IST June 20 was an unforgettable day for this 26-year-old Thane youth, who spent 15 years of his life plucking tea leaves. It was the day Naresh Kumar got a call from an Indian Institute of Management, making him perhaps the first from the indigenous Badaga community of the Nilgiris in Tamil Nadu to have entered the hallowed institution. After belling the CAT with 94.5 percentile, the call from IIM-Lucknow evoked part joy, part worry in him. Although it sounded "like a fairytale," the family went into the thinking mode instead of celebrating. "We barely had any funds. I got a call on June 20 and had to join on June 22," Naresh told TOI. Hailing from Konavukkarai village in Nilgiris district of Ooty, Naresh is one among 422 students who have got into the post-graduate programme in management in IIM-L's 2015-17 batch. Son of a retired stenographer at ACC Cement, Naresh has donned several hats to support his family, which lives in a one-room semi-pucca house in Thane, where they moved after his father's transfer in the late 1990s. While studying at SVPM School, Naresh assisted his mother in offering tutions. After school, in 2006, he joined Datta Meghe College of Engineering, affiliated to Mumbai University. To fund his education, Naresh's father, Raghupathi, took a loan from his company. With little money to buy books, Naresh sat in his college library for hours to study. "I never bought college books. In school, we could arrange it from senior students," recalled Naresh, adding, "There were days when we slept hungry." When in Class VI, he began to pluck tea leaves to add to the family income. "I hold over 15 years of experience in plucking tea leaves. And I love to pluck them even now," he says with pride. "All my life, I have seen my father work day and night just to earn an extra penny. This is all that I could do for them," he says. And by the time he was in Class XI, he was offering part-time tutions. His hard work bore fruit and he got a break at Infosys during campus placement. After working as a trainee leader for two years in Mysore and one year as a web developer in Pune, Naresh quit in 2013 to assist his mother in tutions. IIMs, too, were on his mind. "All the money which I had saved while I worked went into paying off loans, bringing us back to square one," said Naresh. He therefore worked hard for two years to make his dream of joining an IIM come true. Naresh got his first cellphone when he was in the final year of college. "I could hardly afford a phone. It was a gift from my father's boss to him for his service. My dad gifted it to me," said Naresh. After coming to IIM-L, he has finally bought a smartphone. "My friends here downloaded WhatsApp and taught me how to use it,'' said Naresh. After he passes out two years later, Naresh said he "will let the entrepreneurial streak in me unwind. I will go back to my village and start a tea factory. In my district, agriculture is in bad shape. The tea rates for farmers have been by just Rs 4-5 in past two decades. Relatively, the market rates in this period have been more than doubled," he says. At IIM-L, the first project he is doing is on understanding how the tea industry across the country works.

Pothole app a hit, TMC moves to fix pockmarked Thane roads Manoj Badgeri, TNN | Jul 28, 2015, 04.55AM IST THANE: The civic administration is now considering including hi-tech machines to swiftly address the pothole menace in the city following the overwhelming response to its mobile-based application launched on Saturday. Nearly 300 residents downloaded the application out of which around 70 registered complaints within two days of its launch. The app called Star Grade allows residents to clock photos of potholes in Thane and alert civic officials about it. The app saw nearly 20 downloads on the first day itself. "We are in the process of hiring jet patching machines to ensure speedy repairs of potholes in the city. This will ensure the repair work can be done speedily even in the rains and it will last for a longer time as against the conventional repair work," said a senior official. The official said the civic body was working towards responding promptly to all civic-related complaints of residents. He also added that rains could probably slow down the process of road repairs until the jet patching machines were deployed on city roads. "Currently, we are repairing roads but the same isn't lasting long due to the incessant heavy rains. Once we get the jet patching machine, we can easily ensure the repaired potholes will not resurface for a long time," said the civic official.

Congress leader from Thane, Bal Purnekar, said they strongly objected to this 'insult to farmers' and said they won't ask for Singh's resignation but would rather wait for the BJP and prime minister Narendra Modi to take appropriate action. "Singh has made this statement as the Union agriculture minister. It is a surprise the BJP hasn't yet expelled him from the post and the government. We will send a note to PM Modi asking him why is the government and his party silent on this issue," said Purnekar.

2015-07-25Drowned boy's father booked in suspected human sac
Drowned boys father booked in suspected human sacrifice case Saturday, July 25th, 2015 | Thane: Days after three women were arrested in a suspected human sacrifice case involving a 12-year-old boy, whose body was recovered from Khadavli river Khadavli river in Kasara here, police have now booked his father for conspiracy and murder. During this week, Kalyan Railway Police which claimed to have solved the case, had arrested the boys stepmother Lata Kanjode (35), her sister Varsha Jadhav (25) and sister-in-law Latika Jadhav (30) in connection with the case. Inspector A T Vasave of Kasara police station, where the case was transferred, told today that Ramdas Kanjode, father of the boy who had drowned, has been charged under sections 302 (murder), 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence, or giving false information to screen offender), 120 B (criminal conspiracy), 363 (kidnapping) and 182 (giving false information) of the IPC. However, we are yet to arrest Ramdas, he said. On July 20, the body Daksh Kanjode was found in the river here after local fishermen spotted it and informed the police. The body was found dumped in the river wrapped in a plastic bag tied to a bucket. A thorough probe into the crime led the police to the victims stepmother Lata, who allegedly along with two other relatives killed the minor by strangulating him with a rope. Later, the trio transported the body packed in a bucket by train to Kasara in the wee hours of July 1, which was found early this week. According to the boys maternal uncle, who lived nearby and had lodged a missing complaint with local police on July 9, the trio were often seen performing late night rituals but was unaware of their purpose and motives. As per police, this was the third marriage of Ramdas Kanjode. His first wife died in 2010 after which he re-married. Subsequently, his second wife too deserted him following which he tied the knot with accused Lata. Police had earlier registered a case under section 363 (kidnapping) of the IPC after the boy went missing. Later, when his body was found a case under other relevant sections were registered. The arrested trio has been remanded to police custody till July 30 and police are probing the human sacrifice angle as it is suspected that Ramdas and Lata wanted to eliminate the boy to have a smooth married life, the inspector added.

Upgrade in railway reservation system at Thane Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Jul 26, 2015, 04.58 AM IST THANE: The Central Railway (CR) has upgraded the system for passengers booking outstation railway reservation house in Thane on a trial basis. The advanced facility promises to ensure better facilities for passengers and officials alike. For the first time, the CR has installed digital monitors at the seven reservation counters at the reservation house in Thane. While the practice of issuing tokens remains the same, the new monitors will display details of the toke number along with journey information and the vacancy available in the desired train as mentioned by the passenger in the reservation form. Presently, two separate analog monitors display the information and commuters find it inconvenient to access information from them. These new monitors would be placed conveniently where the passengers booking tickets can easily view them. The system is being tested at the station for one month following which it will be replicated at Mumbai CST and later at Kalyan. Further, there are plans to install speakers and mikes at all the windows for improving communication between the reservation officials and passengers. "Often commuters and officials have to strain themselves while communicating thanks to the glass partition. The mikes will amplify the voice at both ends and convenience both parties," said an official. Nearly 2,500 commuters book tickets from Thane station daily. These initiatives are a step ahead in providing good service to commuters, informed railway officials.

Bragging About 4-Month-Old Murder Lands Thane Man In Jail Jul 24, 2015, 08:15 IST For 4 months, no one knew that a property brokers body had been lying in a Malshej Ghat gorge; having nearly gotten away with murder, a drunken Karan Jadhav bragged about it in a bar, got arrested The smartest criminals are also often the dumbest ones because, having committed the perfect crime, they cant resist bragging about it. This is exactly what happened to a property broker from Shahapur in Thane district, who murdered another broker he was having a dispute with and threw the body off a cliff, into a nearly 2,000-foot deep gorge in Malshej Ghat.The remains would have lain there, pecked off bit by bit by crows and vultures and swept away by a babbling brook nearby, until there was nothing left to discover but for the brokers need to brag about the murder to his friends in a drunken stupor. Unfortunately for the criminal, the bragging, which took place in a bar earlier this month, was overheard by an informer, who approached the police and helped them arrest the broker in connection with the murder, which had taken place nearly four months ago. Scouring the area to find the body, all that the cops could recover on Wednesday were some teeth, a few parts of the shattered skull, some other bones and what remained of the clothes that the victim was wearing. The broker and his accomplice have been charged with kidnapping and murder and are currently behind bars. Smooth operator For the family of Datta Keru Bohir (34), a broker who dealt in adivasi non-agricultural plots, his staying away from home for weeks or even months was nothing new. Hence, when they saw Bohir leave their Shahapur house around March 23, they only expected to see him sometime in April or even May. The months rolled by and, with June approaching, there was still no sign of Bohir. With even his phone being unreachable, the family began to get worried. They spoke to several people, including another broker, Kapil Jadhav (24), a resident of the Padgha village nearby, who was known to the family as someone who brought buyers to Bohir. Jadhav told them that he hadnt seen Bohir since March, and that got the family even more worried. Jadhav then suggested that the family lodge a missing complaint. Stumped On June 29, Jadhav went with the family to the Shahapur police station and gave the police details of what Bohir was wearing blue jeans and a yellow half-sleeve T-shirt when he had seen the missing man last, which he claimed was sometime in March. With only those clues to go on, the police could not make much headway in the case, and speaking to other people known to Bohir also did not yield any information about his possible whereabouts. Cue the braggart In the first week of July, Jadhav was sitting with his friends in a bar in Shahapur and the conversation veered towards interesting crime stories. As the night wore on and Jadhav kept getting more and more drunk, he told his friends that he had murdered a person and disposed of his body.

Two Pujari aides transfered to Thane police Nishikant Karlikar | TNN | Jul 23, 2015, 11.18 AM IST THANE: The Thane police have secured custody of two aides of the fugitive gangster Ravi Pujari who was arrested by the Mumbai police in April for extortion threats to Mumbai and Thane businessmen and politicians. The accused--Dayanand Jatan alias Chaddi 48, and Bipin Patil, 37 both Dombivli residents are part of the module that Pujari runs in the region. The accused are believed to be intimidating an Ulhasnagar-based politician among others. Jatan is believed to be providing details of the influential businessman and politicians from Thane and find out their addresses, phone numbers and whereabouts while Patil was assisting him. Also, he would collect the extorted money from the targets and send it Pujari, said Parag Manere, the deputy commissioner of police (crime). "The duo was instrumental in providing sensitive details to Pujari and involved in the providing logistical supportlike to keep a watch on their (targets) movements, make inquiries and later give it to Pujari. As Mumbai police had arrested them earlier we have now sought the custody of the duo for seeking details of the extortion racket in Thane police commissionerate," Manere told TOI. The Anti Extortion cell of Thane police on Wednesday secured the custody of the duo to ascertain their role in extortion syndicate in Thane. "We are in process to interrogate as to how many people they have threatened, how they dug out the information of the influential persons, how they transfer money to Pujari and other persons involved in providing the local inputs to the fugitive," Nivrutti Kadam, senior police inspector told TOI.
2015-07-23350 govt staff in Thane await quarters - The Times
350 govt staff in Thane await quarters Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Jul 23, 2015, 12.51 PM IST THANE: Of the nearly 3,500 government officials working in the district, across all cadres and departments, 350 are awaiting allocation of official quarters. An apparent lack of funds has delayed the start of housing projects for these government employees. Thane city has two residential quarters for government officials at Shrinagar and Kopri but are inadequate to meet the present requirement. A rough estimate by revenue officials revealed that nearly 60 per cent of the government staff are either staying in rented private properties or are forced to travel from far off places like Igatpuri, Vasai and Pune as they cannot afford the rent in Thane. No new housing project has been started for government employees in the last 40 years in the district, said officials. Presently, there is a waiting list of 350 employees seeking house in Thane. The government had planned to construct homes for their staff at Patlipada but the same is delayed because of lack of funds. Nearly 16 ground plus seven buildings are to be constructed on the one hectare area that will cost the exchequer nearly Rs 110 crore. "Presently, many staff members are staying in rented properties and we are working towards the quarters," said Ashwini Joshi, Thane collector.
2015-07-23Downpour exposes 400 potholes in Thane - The Times
Downpour exposes 400 potholes in Thane Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Jul 23, 2015, 01.00 PM IST THANE: Potholes have developed in several stretches of the city following heavy rains over the last two days. This comes as a major embarrassment for the civic body as it had claimed that repair works were over in June. Potholes can be seen near MH High School on the road that leads to the Thane station, Naupada telephone exchange, Gurukul society in Panchpakhadi and Kolshet road. As per a TMC survey, nearly 400 potholes had developed on the city's roads after the heavy June showers. Nearly Rs 2.5 crore was allocated for pothole repairs, a civic official said. Officials said they were using a cold mix process to temporarily fill up the potholes. TMC commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal had launched a strict drive against potholes and was himself inspecting the roads to ensure they were filled up. Jaiswal had also warned that PWD officials would face action if potholes frequently developed on the city's roads. Residents and activists have, however, panned the civic exercise, calling it an eyewash. "There should be a mechanism to ensure roads last for at least three years or the contractor faces action. We are awaiting the civic chief's actions," said civic activist Chandrahas Tawde. Meanwhile, a mobile application which will allow residents to send pictures of potholes to civic officials will be launched soon.

"The plastic bottles take very long to biodegrade. Children need to be sensitized to the problem that the bottles are poisoning the ecosystem and will be the biggest cause of worry in the future,'' said principal Revati Srinivasan. A class VII student, Smit Malde, said, "I enjoyed the project. It was good to learn that we can create something so beautiful out of waste. There are no places to grow plants as much of the land is occupied by buildings, so this is a good way to protect our environment."

Part of balcony collapse in Thane Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Jul 23, 2015, 12.12 PM IST THANE: A balcony of a two storey building in the city collapsed on the lower floors on Thursday morning. Luckily no one was injured in the incident but civic officials are evacuating the building as a precautionary measure. Around 8am, the balcony including part of the slab of a second floor flat in Champa Smruti building in Kopri collapsed spreading panic among the residents. Civic officials rushed to the spot and took stock of the situation. Residents complained that there were some cracks developing on the structure following which civic officials have started evacuating the five families staying here. "The balcony caved into the lower floors causing damage to the structure. We are evacuating the families from the building as a precautionary measure,"informed Santosh Kadam, chief of disaster management cell of TMC. Civic officials say the structure was very old and could have been further weakened because of leakage due to the rains. The city has witnessed torrential rains since the last three days.
2015-07-23A metro dream: 10 wishes for a Thane of our dreams
A metro dream: 10 wishes for a Thane of our dreams Here are some of the things we think will help make your lives better. You could probably list many more. Lets work together. Lets make the news better. MUMBAI Updated: Jul 23, 2015 22:09 IST Here are some of the things we think will help make your lives better. You could probably list many more. Lets work together. Lets make the news better. 1) Wanted: Places to party all night What do Thaneiites do when they want to party? They head to Mumbai. Thane has pubs and restaurants, but these mostly host birthday parties for children and 50th wedding anniversary dos. And, they all shut by midnight. Dance bars shut by 1am, and you venture in at your own risk. The dozens of dhabas on the highway to Nashik serve yummy food, but are filled with truck drivers and stray travellers. Not somewhere you would want to hang out with friends although they stay open till 2am. t the hukkah parlours attached to the dhabas, theres always the danger of run-ins with other customers or, worse, some politician out moral policing. Last we checked, its not a crime to want to have some fun with friends after a hard days work. 2) Toll booths: An end to the toll trolls Thane had 16 toll booths till recently. It still has 10. What this means is that if you drive to Mumbai everyday be prepared to pay Rs 1,200 to Rs 1,400 every month. City residents started paying toll in 1997, when the Kharegaon toll booth opened on the Mumbai-Nashik Highway. When the government minister announced 56 toll plazas across the state would be shut down, only six of Thanes were on the list. Those using the Mulund Eastern Express highway, Modella toll naka on LBS Road, Kharghar toll naka on Bhiwandi bypass and Dahisar toll naka on Western Express Highway continue to be burdened. Protests have been in vain so far. Heres hoping things get better.3) For a place to park Anyone whos driven out to shop in the lanes of Old Thane or to a chaat shop on the banks of Masunda Lake, would have one eye on their vehicle. Theres very little place to park and every chance that the cops will tow your vehicle away. Thanes vehicle count has multiplied manifold over the last two decades, but the authorities have built just three new parking lots in that time, though 26 plots have been reserved for the purpose. Out of the 24 lakh people living in the city, around six lakh use their vehicles every day. Where will they park? The pay-and-park facilities planned along the roads are caught in the crossfire of votebank politics. The stacked parking planned on nullahs in the city remains on paper. We are running out of space and patience.4) Fare deal: Ply by meter, please Residents of Kalyan and Dombivli dream of the day when they can hop into an autorickshaw without haggling over the right fare. The 20,000-odd autorickshaw drivers of the two cities continue to cock a snook at those trying to implement the fare meter system thats in place in Thane and Mumbai. With much fanfare State transport minister Diwakar Raotes inaugurated a stand for autorickshaws plying with fare meters, near Kalyan railway station. A few hours later, the stand was deserted. No driver was ready to give up the extra buck. Is there no way to rein in these extortionists? 5) Hospitals for the poor A city of 24 lakh residents has just one civic hospital, while there are 344 private hospitals, big and small. The 500-bed Chhatrapati Shivaji Hospital, also known as Kalwa hospital, sees around 1,400 patients a day but does not have the facilities or the expertise to treat heart diseases or neurological disorders. Of course, the TMC runs 25 health centres, but most need a booster dose.Those who can afford it go to the private hospitals, the rest have to travel to Mumbai to access proper public health care. If the private sector can provide quality health care in Thane, why cant the government? Affordable health care cant remain a dream. Lives are at stake. 6) Clean up: Free our footpaths If its roads are chaotic, Thanes footpaths are worse. The few that exist have turned into vending zones or garbage dumps. This leaves pedestrians, especially the very young and the very old, perilously dodging vehicles on the roads. Instead of dreaming up concepts such as harit janpath (green footpaths), could the Thane Municipal Corporation just ensure that those that are already there are cleared and repaired for people to walk on? And could we have more footpaths along busy roads? Its worse in Kalyan and Dombivli: footpaths near the railway stations have been overrun by hawkers and the civic authorities plan to set up hawking zones there. It apparently pays to break the law. What about the pedestrians? They can take a walk, we guess.7) Leisure: Seniors need their space Why do we expect senior citizens to be happy with a walk in the park or a visit to the temple? Why cant we build them other spaces to hang out at? Spaces properly designed to cater to their special needs, with people around to help if needed. These could include reading areas, places to walk and exercise safely, and restaurants serving food thats easy on the stomach. Thane has just four Nana-Nani parks, the proposed senior citizen complex in Dokali is only on paper. In the twin cities of Kalyan-Dombivli, senior citizens do not have any parks. The elderly are seen walking along the Kala Talao lake, which is crowded with youngsters and canoodling couples. This is no bad thing, but dont senior citizens need more choices? Its the least they deserve.8) The wayout: Roads that connect Trains are the lifeline of Kalyan and Dombivli residents. What do they do when the trains dont run? And this has been happening quite often of late with track failures, overhead wires breaking or trains derailing. They simply wait for services to resume, which can take one hour or 24 hours. Their problem is that there is no proper road connectivity from Kalyan to Thane: the road winds towards Durgadi and then to Biwandi to reach Thane. Travel can take up to an hour and a half. Developing a parallel road along Thakurli railway station would shorten travel time by half and benefit lakhs of commuters. The plan got the go-ahead in 2013, but work is mired in land acquisition and compensation issues. 9) Ambulances: Emergency medical aid With five track accidents a day, Thane railway station should have a full-fledged hospital on its premises. All it has are two ambulances from a private agency. If the victims are lucky, some good Samaritan will rush them to hospital. Kalwa, Diva, Kopar and Thakurli railway stations dont have ambulances either, though the number of commuters multiplies every year. The ambulance parked at Mumbra station is supposed to serve Diva, which sees one accident every day. But the driver is reluctant to go all the way to Diva citing payment issues. Its time the railways woke up. After all, Thane is one of the busiest stations in the country handling 6 lakh commuters every day.10) Illegal homes: Houses that dont collapse With real estate prices going through the roof, buying a home thats been built without breaking the law is something few can afford. This has spawned large scale illegal construction in Thane and beyond. People buy homes in these buildings and keep their fingers crossed, seeing as how these houses collapse every so often. The statistics are alarming 1,31,939 unauthorised buildings as against 31,344 authorised ones. Anyone can construct towers, as was the case of Shil Phata building which was constructed by scrap dealers. With building plans being amended more than our national laws, both builders and civic officials act confused and blatantly flout all rules.

2-day rain revives dams supplying water to Thane, no additional cuts Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Jul 23, 2015, 12.48 PM IST THANE: The lake city will not face additional water cuts, as proposed earlier, as the two-day incessant rains have increased the water levels in the reservoirs catering to the city. The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has, however, asked residents to use water judiciously. The district saw an average of 104mm rainfall in the last 24 hours.The catchment areas of the two reservoirs in Thane district - Barvi dam and Bhatsa dam - that supply water to the city saw 137mm and 127mm of rains in the last one day. Civic officials said that Barvi dam is now 17.5 per cent full while Bhatsa dam has 40 per cent water stock. The stock is likely to last for the next two-three months, the officials added. Meanwhile, the TMC has started working on water sampling of the nearly 1,010 borewells in the city that could be tapped in case water scarcity arises in future. The civic commissioner had held a closed door meeting last week and announced his plans to tap water from alternate resources in case the rains eluded the district further. Plans are also afoot to check the water quality of around 555 wells in the city and include their use to bolster the supply network in the city. "Right now the water levels in the reservoirs seem to last for another three months. There is no need to enforce water cut in the city right now. We are also tapping borewells from the city as alternate sources for supply," said a civic official. The city presently suffers a day-long water cut on Wednesdays. On July 10, Bhatsa dam had just 33.42 per cent water left that could have lasted 150 days while Barve dam had water just enough to last 45 days.

Police sub-inspector SB Kamble of the Nallasopara police station told PTI that the girl whose parents deserted her after they separated, had been living with one of her aunts in Nallasopara. Two years ago, one of the accused took her to his room and allegedly raped her, according to the complaint.However, the girl never realised what had been done to her until she attended a sex education class at school, after which she narrated the incident to her teacher, who filed a police complaint, the police official said.

Bio-toilets planned in Thane's crowded areas Freny Fernandes | TNN | Jul 22, 2015, 03.20 PM IST THANE: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) is planning to install bio-toilets at busy junctions and market places across Thane. These toilets, an initiative by the government's Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, will help in minimizing the generation of solid waste. A civic official said, "Each of these toilets will have a tank at the bottom where the waste will be collected. At particular intervals, the tanks will be infused with certain parasites that will digest the solid waste. The remaining liquid waste will be flushed into the drainage lines. Areas with higher population traffic will be given bio-toilets that have tanks with higher retaining capacity." In the ongoing survey undertaken by the TMC, the number of toilets in the city, areas that need these toilets and the population that uses these toilets will be considered to provide bio-toilets. "We have sent out 125 officials to jot down the details of all private, community and public toilets in Thane and the number of people that use them. Seventy-five per cent of the survey is complete. In areas including Naupada and Uthalsar, the survey is almost done. Survey in slum areas including Mumbra, Railadevi, etc will take a few more days," said the official.
2015-07-22Soon, 50 autos in Thane to be driven only by women
Soon, 50 autos in Thane to be driven only by women Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Jul 22, 2015, 03.38 PM IST THANE: Around 50 autos from the city will soon be reserved exclusively to be driven by women who will ferry only women commuters. The Thane transport department has got a nod from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Transport Authority (MMRTA) to operate ladies special autos on the lines of ladies special trains and buses. The department is now approaching NGOs working for women welfare and hope to recruit nearly 50 women drivers to operate this exclusive service. As per the proposal, the transport department wanted to operate exclusive auto services for women in the city by issuing special permits for women. The vehicles would be driven by women and could be hired by women only. A separate colour code was proposed for these vehicles that could help identify them on the roads and a unique uniform colour was also proposed. Once implemented, Thane could possibly be the first town in the state with female-driven autos. Presently, Mumbai has women exclusive cab services but the numbers are limited and do not service Thane often. The MMRTA has, however, allowed women drivers with badges and license to start plying autos even if the permit is in the name of a male. Also, while a colour coding hasn't been approved yet, the regular black and yellow autos could be deployed but with a 'ladies only' board fixed prominently on it. "We have appealed to women with valid license and an interest in driving autos to approach us. The process for availing badges will also be fast-tracked so that the city gets the facility at the earliest," said Hemangini Patil, deputy regional transport official. Incidentally, a woman auto driver was arrested and eventually granted bail by the Vashi police for allegedly mowing down a senior citizen in May this year. The driver, who is probably one of the only two women drivers in Navi Mumbai, did not have a valid license. The police said that she had claimed to apply for the license but was yet to receive it.

2015-07-22Soon, 50 autos in Thane to be driven only by women
Soon, 50 autos in Thane to be driven only by women Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Jul 22, 2015, 03.38 PM IST THANE: Around 50 autos from the city will soon be reserved exclusively to be driven by women who will ferry only women commuters. The Thane transport department has got a nod from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Transport Authority (MMRTA) to operate ladies special autos on the lines of ladies special trains and buses. The department is now approaching NGOs working for women welfare and hope to recruit nearly 50 women drivers to operate this exclusive service. As per the proposal, the transport department wanted to operate exclusive auto services for women in the city by issuing special permits for women. The vehicles would be driven by women and could be hired by women only. A separate colour code was proposed for these vehicles that could help identify them on the roads and a unique uniform colour was also proposed. Once implemented, Thane could possibly be the first town in the state with female-driven autos. Presently, Mumbai has women exclusive cab services but the numbers are limited and do not service Thane often. The MMRTA has, however, allowed women drivers with badges and license to start plying autos even if the permit is in the name of a male. Also, while a colour coding hasn't been approved yet, the regular black and yellow autos could be deployed but with a 'ladies only' board fixed prominently on it. "We have appealed to women with valid license and an interest in driving autos to approach us. The process for availing badges will also be fast-tracked so that the city gets the facility at the earliest," said Hemangini Patil, deputy regional transport official. Incidentally, a woman auto driver was arrested and eventually granted bail by the Vashi police for allegedly mowing down a senior citizen in May this year. The driver, who is probably one of the only two women drivers in Navi Mumbai, did not have a valid license. The police said that she had claimed to apply for the license but was yet to receive it.

Mayhem at TMC general body meet Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Jul 21, 2015, 04.25 AM IST Chaos reigned supreme in the Thane municipal corporation general body on Monday after a senior civic official was accused of reportedly 'misbehaving' with a Dalit corporator. Irate corporators pressed for Atrocities Act be slapped against the official. During the TMC general body on Monday, a BSP corporator Vilas Kamble complained to the Mayor Sanjay More that a senior official had neglected his demands for development and kept him waiting outside his room. Fellow corporators raised the issue before the House and asked Kamble to name the official. Following prodding, Kamble named additional commissioner Sunil Chavan to have denied him an appointment and thereby insulted an elected representative. "The official almost threw me out of his cabin when I tried to meet him recently," said Kamble. Following this, corporator Nagsen Indise immediately demanded a case be registered against Chavan under the Atrocities Act. Several other corporators across political parties immediately supported the demand and called for action. "There needs to be some stern action taken in this issue else the administration will continue treating us badly," complained another corporator. Meanwhile corporator Sanjay Ghadigaonkar alleged the civic administration was going slow on heeding to the demands of elected representatives.

A deeper probe on the source of the arms and the men for the assault on the BJP functionary revealed a chain which led to Miya, who though lodged inside the Ara jail and had over 22 cases against him. "Khan had accepted the contract to eliminate Mahesh Patil and went to Bihar to meet Miya to organise the arms and the men for the killing," said senior inspector NT Kadam of the anti-extortion cell. However, even before Miya's men could strike the Thane cops arrested Khan along with the six others, four of whom were brought from UP and Bihar for the crime. Following intensive interrogation of the Bihar and UP criminals, they spilled the beans on Miya and revealed the plot and how they ran the operation without use of any modern gadgets. "It is one of the major breakthroughs for us as it has exposed a modus operandi where the Maoist are being hired to execute the murder. They do not use mobile phones or any electronic devices to avoid detection and e-surveillance," Manere said. He said Miya was brought to Thane on Friday morning and will be interrogated thoroughly for any other assassination attempts in the state.

Absolutely bizzare! DNA newspaper bans use of mobile phones in Mumbai, Thane offices Jul, 17 2015 13:51:17 IST No Whatsapp or mobile calls, landline calls only please. The DNA newspaper maybe reworking its digital strategy but it has a unique strategy for boosting productivity.Owned by by Diligent Media Corporation, an Essel Group company, the Mumbai-headquartered newspaper has implemented a 'No mobile policy' in its Mumbai and Thane offices. Employees have been instructed to surrender phones to the security, and the staff has been asked to use landlines to get in touch with sources and contacts for stories. According to a report in the News Minute, the editorial team did object but the management brushed off their concerns. The decision comes months after employees at the newspapers sister concern, Zee Entertainment were faced with a similar situation after the organisation banned cell phones in April 2015. The move is being cited as one to improve productivity. DNA employees, including reporters, were even asked to ensure call forwarding from their mobile phones to their respective landline extensions, sync their contacts on Gmail or store all contacts on the landline system as alternatives. "Either transfer all calls landline or upload contacts on to Google/Gmail. If you want to use your phone, you aren't even allowed to use the lobby area. One has to go out of the office, much like smokers, to do so," a DNA staffer told Firstpost on condition of anonymity.The basic idea is to make the landline system the one-stop solution for all forms of communication. It also raises questions of privacy since the calls made from the IP-based extensions can reportedly even be recorded. Reporters may now prefer to file stories from outside rather than upload all their data on the IP-based landline phones across group companies. "Team members having their own cars are encouraged to leave their respective mobile phones in their cars before entering office. A provision to store mobile phones at security on entrance shall be made at all offices for team members using public transport to commute to work, an email that was reportedly sent to Zee Entertainment employees in April this year says.

2015-07-17Thane: TMT raises fare- Get ready to shell out mor
Thane: TMT raises fare- Get ready to shell out more from today Updated: Jul 17, 2015, 07:30 AM IST, DNA Get ready to pay the increased fare to commute in the Thane Municipal Transport (TMT) from today. The proposed hike has finally been approved and it will be implemented from today. There are about 2.55 lakh passengers who use the TMT buses daily and now, that the TMC has finally approved the increased fare, the passengers will have to pay Rs7 instead of Rs5 for minimum distance and the minimum fare of AC buses has been revised to Rs20 from Rs15. The increased fare comes across as a good news for the cash-strapped TMT, which is now expecting an increase in revenue and is hopeful to pay back its debts. TMT plies 311 buses on over 68 routes and is presently running into the loss of Rs4.5 lakh daily on its services. The TMT officials said they are hopeful that the increased fare will help them improve their financial standing. Devidas Tekale, the TMT manager, said, "New charges will be implemented from today and tickets, too, have been reprinted as per the increased new rates. Even the increased rates are cheaper than that of the BEST and other services plying in the city." Apparently, the new hike has not created much furore among thanekars. "The increase of Rs2 in the minimum fare will not make big hole in our pockets, but what is surprising is that with though the fares are increased, the services still remain poor. There is a need to ply more buses in the city to meet the daily demands of the commuters. Also, the buses should ply as per the scheduled time rather than following an erratic schedule," said Divyesh Shaha, a Thane resident. Though the nominal increase has not turned into a major problem, commuters are more more concerned about the Rs5 increase in the AC fare charges as they don't get facility in return. "Either the ACs are not functional or most of the time, they are turned off and are only switched on when we demand," said a commuter, requesting anonymity. "In areas like Brahmand, Upvan and Anand Nagar, the fleet of TMT buses is very poor and commuters from the area will not pay the increased fare until the TMT mends its ways and increases the frequency of its buses," said KV Chandran, a senior resident. A day ago, the residents had met the TMT officials to take up the matter of poor frequency. The transport authority officials have ensured that they will improve the services and working on it.

In addition, an entire week will be dedicated for various competitions focusing on the theme of conserving environment. "We have received support from individuals, housing complexes and NGOs from the city for our various green conservation initiatives. The Green Thane week movement needs to be spread throughout Thane and so we are approaching housing society, schools, colleges and even corporate offices for their involvement in this massive plantation drive. We are in the process of identifying places in Thane and neighborhood where we will plant nearly 150 fruit and flower bearing plants and trees," informs Augustine.

Pfizer to shut Thane plant Updated: Jul 16, 2015, 07:20 AM IST, DNA After Sandoz, Pfizer has become the second multinational drugmaker to announce closure of its manufacturing facility near Mumbai since last week. The US-based company would close its Thane plant from September 16, 2015. On July 10, Sandoz had announced closure of its plant in Turbhe from December as part of its plan to optimise its manufacturing network globally. Pfizer in its filing with the BSE said it has intimated the concerned authorities that it intends to effect closure of its plant situated at Thane, Belapur Road, with effect from September 16, 2015. "The decision to close the plant is based on an assessment of its long-term viability and its ability to achieve the needed production," the company said. This plant was commissioned in 1960s and has been a part of Pfizer India's heritage for over 50 years. During this time, it produced a number of medicines for both domestic and international markets, the company said. Last year, the drug maker issued a lockout notice at the facility on the grounds of indiscipline, threats to management personnel and attempts to disrupt production lines by certain workmen. "There has practically been no production activity at this plant since 2013, and the closure will not impact the supply of any of the company's medicines to patients," it said. Pfizer has some established brands such as Corex, Becosule, Gelusil, Pfizer had offered a voluntary retirement scheme to the people working in that unit last year. "This was taken up by as many as 132 of the 212 workmen. The remaining 80 workmen have continued to receive full wages, despite plant inactivity. As a part of the closure process, the company will honour its obligations towards requisite compensation, as mandated by law, for the remaining workmen," the statement said. Post this shutdown, Goa would be Pfizer's only facility in India, which was earlier owned by Wyeth. The company completed the Wyeth merger last year. A pharma analyst said these manufacturing facilities are too big compared to the product baskets. Besides, most products are outsourced, so there's no need to continue a facility only for a couple of products. "The Pfizer unit also had union-related issues where the managerial personnel were getting threats. There will be a one-time cost towards VRS, but this move will help the company to improve its margins as expenses will come down," the analyst said.

The civic transport body bears an operating loss of Rs 5 lakhs daily and the hike is expected to offset losses by atleast 40%.

2015-07-15Thane accepts one-year MCPS interim superintendent
Thane accepts one-year MCPS interim superintendent position ALICE MILLER alice.miller@missoulian.com May 12, 2015 It's official. Mark Thane will serve as Missoula County Public Schools interim superintendent for the coming school year. Trustees on Tuesday voted unanimously in favor of the $145,000 contract, with trustees Jim Sadler and Diane Lorenzen absent. Thane said he's appreciative and enthused about being superintendent. "So thank you and I'm ready to dig in," he told trustees. Thane has more than 30 years of experience in education, largely with MCPS. His roles have included those of classroom teacher, principal, executive regional director and human resources director. The Montana native takes the helm of MCPS in the midst of its push for the $88 million elementary district and $70 million high school bond measures in November. In April, trustees voted to offer the one-year position to Thane after an interview process. Thane was the only internal candidate to apply after current Superintendent Alex Apostle announced he was retiring to take another superintendent job in Washington state. Benefits in the contract include sick, vacation and personal days, and a life insurance policy, as well as a monthly contribution by the district of $1,875 to a TSA of choice. Trustees still must discuss whether to look for a long-term superintendent through a regional or national search process or to offer an extended contract to Thane. *** Also during Tuesday's board meeting, outgoing trustees Sadler and Chairman Joseph Knapp Jr. were honored for their years of service on the board. Sadler, who served 21 years, was unseated by Lisa Triepke in the May 5 election, while Knapp opted not to run for re-election after six years on the school board. Both Sadler and Knapp said they are honored to have served on the board and that MCPS is a leader in providing exceptional opportunities to kids. "It has remarkable human beings and it turns out remarkable human beings," Knapp said about the district's employees and students. Everyone is thanking him, Sadler said, but he turned the appreciation to others. "I want to thank you because it's a great honor to have served the district," he said.

Apart from shopping, they also eat inside the premises File Photo Contaminated water supply is not only haunting people at home, but also at malls. If rumours are to be believed then Viviana – one of the popular malls in Thane – has been getting contaminated water supply and shoppers have been complaining about it for the past few days. It all started in Balkum area, where the residents hit the streets to protest against muddy water supply. Apparently, the residents of this area had been receiving muddy water since few months and took up the issue with civic officials. But since nothing was done, they took to the streets. And now the contaminated water supply at Viviana has raised the question on civic authorities' attitude towards this problem. With the ongoing monsoon sales, shoppers throng malls and mostly spend the entire day. They eat and drink at malls too, however this incident proved costly for few shoppers who after reaching home complained of stomach upset, nausea and other problems. All of them at consumed food and drank water from inside the mall. After rumours started spreading, some people dropped the idea of visiting the mall, while those who chose to head there did not drink or eat while shopping at the mall. Divyesh Vyas, a shopper, said, "Since the time we have heard about contaminated water at the mall, we have altered our programme and informed our friends too. We are carrying water with us and not eating anything from the mall." However, the mall management said, "These are rumours. We have made all the arrangements and taken necessary steps to ensure safety of shoppers; health regulation is in place. Shoppers should not worry. The mall understands that safety of patrons is its utmost priority and will ensure to take care of it in best possible way." In the past few months the Thane-based mall has been in news. "The rumour of contamination water at the mall circulating on WhatsApp is a deliberate effort to defame the mall. We will muling over filing an official complaint with the cyber crime cell," the mall authority said. Thane Municipal Corporation PRO Sandeep Malvi said, "The mall has outsourced water from private tanker supplier. Though we have provided them with eight piped waterline connections, they are outsourcing water without checking its source. They could have opted for tankers from the TMC, which is cost effective. They could have intimated us about more water requirement, but choose none of these. We have taken the water sample and sent it to the lab for test. Based on the results, we will plan our action." 534Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Whatsapp Comments Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC)Mallswater supplyViviana Mallcontaminated water

A 23-year-old womans pregnancy has blown the lid off a prostitution racket allegedly being run in an Ulhasnagar rehabilitation centre, which is supposed to be a safe home for women rescued from prostitution across Thane.

2015-07-13Thane: Family donates eyes of daughter who killed
Thane: Family donates eyes of daughter who killed self By Sadaguru Pandit |Posted 13-Jul-2015 The teenager allegedly committed suicide after failing to get through to engineering colleges in Thane; the family, while still coming to terms with the loss, decided they wanted her to 'live on in another form' When you're grieving over the loss of a loved one, it takes great fortitude to think of somebody else. That's what a Thane family did over the weekend, when they decided to donate the eyes of their daughter, who allegedly killed herself after failing to secure admission to engineering colleges. Mumbai cop's vision convinces 16,000 people to donate their eyes Police said the girl jumped from the terrace of her nine-storey building in Shrey Anand Society in Thane The tragic incident occurred in the wee hours of Friday, when Rajesh Bhosle, a constable in the Thane police force, woke up at 2.30 am to find that his daughter, 18-year-old Aditi, was missing from her room. The family immediately began searching for her and, to their shock, found the teenager lying in a pool of blood atop a car parked on the premises of Shrey Anand society, a housing society on Thane's Kolshet Road. Bhosle rushed his daughter to Jupiter Hospital, where she was declared dead on arrival. The Kapurbawdi police registered an accidental death report in the incident. According to the police, they found a suicide note in the girl's bag. Police claimed Aditi, who had just cleared her Std XII exam, had been under a lot of stress because she had not been able to secure admission to an engineering college in and around Thane despite numerous attempts. We found a suicide note in her bag in which she has said she is committing suicide as she couldn't get into engineering colleges. She jumped from the terrace of the nine-storey building, said a police officer Police then moved the body to Thane Civil Hospital for a post-mortem procedure. While the family was following up with the authorities at the hospital, the representatives of an eye bank approached Rajesh, asking asking if he wished to donate the eyes of their daughter. The grieving father immediately consented and made the donation. 25 members of a family pledge their eyes together All this was done within six hours, the approximate time limit within which the eyes need to be collected from a body to be deemed healthy to transplant to someone who needs them. When mid-day attempted to speak to Rajesh, he confirmed that the family had indeed agreed to donate their daughter's eyes, as they wished to see her live on. We don't want to discuss the issue since the family is in a state of shock. But, we wanted her to live on in some form or the other. That's why we donated her eyes, Rajesh told mid-day.

2015-07-11Thane: Notice to builder for giving residents smal
Thane: Notice to builder for giving residents smaller flats than promised By Varun Singh |Posted 11-Jul-2015 The Legal Metrology department of the state has issued a notice to a top builder for allegedly not giving home buyers the area they had been promised in their flats. On June 25, the members of Runwal Pearl, Thane, had submitted a complaint to the Legal Metrology department, claiming that the area of the house that they had been given was not what the builder had promised Thanex's Legal Metrology department issued the notice to Runwal Builders earlier this week, after it found that the carpet area of the 3BHK flat in its Runwal Pearl project, Thane (West), wasn't what was detailed in the agreement. According to R Dalvi, a senior officer from the Metrology department, Thane, the notice was issued earlier this week to the builder, seeking his reply on the same. We received complaints from members of the building Runwal Pearl and found their complaint to be legitimate, and hence we have issued the notice to the builder, said Dalvi. On June 25, the members of the building had submitted a complaint to the Legal Metrology department, claiming that the area of the house that they had been given was not what the builder had promised. A team from the department visited the houses in the society and found out that the flats were only around 875 sq ft in area (each room was 71.38 sq metres and the attached balcony was 10.04 sq meters, making up 81.42 sq metres, or 876.4 sq ft, in all), compared to the 935 sq ft allegedly promised by the builder. Going flat out According to sources, most of the residents had moved to the building in 2012, and many then realised that the area given wasn't the one offered in the agreement. They then corresponded with the builder several times, to no avail. The members of the society heard that the Legal Metrology department can help them measure the flat and the ratified measurement also is a legal document. The department, when it measured the flat, found that the measurement was lower than promised. Earlier this week, the department sent the notice to the builder seeking his reply, said a source. None of the residents in the building wished to comment on the issue and claimed that they do not wish to speak about it and have done whatever they had to do. However, the issue they have with the measurement done by the metrology department is that, the flat area calculated by the department includes even the balcony, which many claim isn't part of the carpet area, and hence shouldn't be added to the size of the flat. Even with the addition, the flat size is lower than promised. If no response is received from the builder within the stipulated time period, the Legal Metrology department files a complaint with the Judicial Magistrate, First Class, and takes the matter ahead legally. The other side Sandeep Runwal of Runwal Builders said, There was no notice given to us before the legal metrology department carried out the measurement. Also, measurements were carried out four years after handing over possession; people must have carried out alterations. We do not know how the measurement has been done, we have given more area; our plans have been passed by the Thane Municipal Corporation. Why was the measurement done in our absence? The law of natural justice hasn't been followed. He added, What I have been told is the usable area is more than what the home buyers were supposed to receive. Still they are raising issues. If they feel the carpet area is less, then the TMC officials should have also been called for the measurement. What was promised. A 3BHK apartment of 935 sq ft Actual flat size as per the Legal Metrology department measurement* is 876.4 sq ft(*This measurement also includes the balcony)

Lodha Developers' Thane project receives 2,500 pre-launch applicationsBy PTI | 9 Jul, 2015, 09.57PM ISTPost a CommentREAD MORE ON » Thane project | Singapore | New York | London | Lodha Developers | IPO | DubaiET SPECIAL:Love visual aspect of news? Enjoy this exclusive slideshows treat!MUMBAI: City-based realty player Lodha Developers today said its IPO style pre-launch of the affordable luxury residential project in Thane has received over 2,500 applications from prospective buyers. "Lodha has closed applications for the pre-launch of its world-class neighbourhood in Thane. Over 2,500 applications were received during the nine-day IPO-style pre-launch which closed on July 5," the company said in a statement. With a robust wait-list of nearly 500 applicants already, this is shaping up to be one of the biggest and most unique real estate offerings for the year, company's Deputy Managing Director Abhinandan Lodha said. "Surpassing conventional methods, we sought to bring a whole new generation of people who have until now not been able to take part in the market, the chance for larger participation in finding the right home at a unique price point. This sort of value to our customers, which has been so well received," he said. The IPO-style pre-launch of luxury housing was simultaneously done across the globe in New York, London, Dubai, Singapore and Hong Kong and all parts of India. "Priced at Rs 55 lakh onwards, these 1 and 2 bed smart-sized premium homes indicates the growing demand for under Rs one crore ticket sizes in the region for quality developments," Lodha said. Under this format, allocations will be made using an automated allotment process, ensuring a very objective mechanism which is fair to all. "Such a model is being used for the first time in the affordable luxury segment, and is sure to change the way in which real estate is sold. The first set of allotments will roll out by second week of July," he added. In January 2013, the company had first introduced the IPO-styled pre-launch for its premium residential project - Blue Moon - at Worli, which witnessed more than 1,300 applications from prospective buyers.

2015-07-09TMC frames new rules to rein in road-blocking mand
TMC frames new rules to rein in road-blocking mandapsThe author has posted comments on this articleNishikant Karlikar, TNN | Jul 9, 2015, 02.33PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 THANE: Inconvenience faced by pedestrians and motorists in the city during festive seasons due to the huge mandaps occupying space on roads restricting movement may soon be a thing of the past. On Tuesday, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) issued a policy for organizers using up space on roads to erect mandaps during festivals. The civic body stipulated that organizers would be allowed to put up mandaps or stages only on one-fourth portion of the road, leaving the remaining 75% space for public use. The policy paper is based on a HC order to frame guidelines and rules to regulate and control noise pollution and setting up of mandaps during various festivals. The civic body drafted the policy plan following a PIL by citizen activist Dr Mahesh Bedekar, who demanded implementation of the law formed in 2000. The new policy has sought to shrink the public space allowed for mandals to put up the makeshift mandaps. Earlier, organizers were allowed to use 50% of the space on roads for festivals. Apart from causing inconvenience to citizens, it also led to massive snarls and serpentine queue of vehicles honking and emitting smoke. In 2012, the space allowed for mandaps was brought down to one-third, which, now, as per the new set of guidelines, has been further reduced to one-fourth. "Action will be taken against those found violating rules and erecting illegal mandaps without prior permission from civic authorities," said a civic official quoting the guidelines. For all festivals cutting across religions, the Thane municipal commissioner is empowered to give permission for erecting mandaps on the road in accordance with consent from the police commissioner under section 234 of Bombay Provincial Municipal Corporations Act, 1949. The guidelines clearly state that if the proposed mandap comes in the way of obstructing public transport, then it should leave a space of 12 feet for passing through. Also, it has clearly stated that under no circumstances should public roads be dug-up or punched for erecting mandaps. It was suggested that the foundation of the mandap or stage could be made on poles or bamboo sticks firmly placed in sand-filled drums. Failing to follow the rule, the mandal could face legal action.

With the ever-expanding web of new-age cyber crime, the police department has a primary setup which is believed to be basic in nature in terms of dealing with the new age cyber crime. Hence, the idea is to refurbish the present lab and make it more in tune with the current genre of cyber crimes, said Parag Manere, deputy commissioner of police (crime). In the last few years, the population under the Thane police commissionerate has grown by leaps and bounds, simultaneously the use of internet and electronic gadgets has drastically shot up and so has the cyber crime seen a spike. Statistics of Thane police reveals that there has been a steep rise in the cyber crime complaints in the Thane Police commissionerate jurisdiction. As against the total of 1217 complaints registered in 2014, this year in just six months, the total number of complaints has crossed the preceding years mark with 1250 complaints. (SEE BOX) The new equipments--hard disk analyzer, mobile forensic kit and social media search supervision will enable law enforcement officers to investigate the cyber crimes. Presently, gathering technical evidence is a timely affair as they are sent for analysis to lab at Kalina and wait for report for longer period of time. Hence, such sophisticated forensic and analytical tools will have in gathering in swift gathering of the technical data which shall be retrieved from with the help of such machines from phone, computer, laptops, I-pad etc and place it before the court in a particular type of cyber crime offence, Jagdish Sawant, police inspector (cyber crime) informed TOI. Sawant pointed out that the web-media has been a new weapon to propagate religious fanaticism as it is an easy way to target emotionally charged up tweets , status or morphed pictures widely circulated in the cyber space, the social media search option will aid to curb spreading rumours. The lab shall be financed through the District Planning and Development Council (DPDC). http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/followceleb.cms?alias=Stay updated on the go with Times of India News App. Click here to download it for your device.
2015-07-09Thane: Fearing crackdown, sand miners move from Ul
Thane: Fearing Crackdown, Sand Miners Move From Ulhas Creek To Mumbra Jul 09, 2015, 11:33 IST | Ranjeet Jadhav and Shrikant Khuperkar Fearing renewed crackdown by the authorities following mid-days reports on illegal dredging taking place at Ulhas creek, the sand mafia seem to have beaten a hasty retreat from the Diva-Dombivli stretch, where the sand mining was most rampant. However, the illegal activity is far from over the sand miners have simply shifted base to Mumbra, near the Central Railway bridge. According to experts, this is even more worrying as unchecked dredging could compromise the structural integrity of the bridge itself, possibly resulting in a collapse.Last month, mid-day had highlighted how dredging had wiped out 300 acres of mangroves at the creek and was slowly turning the water body into a flood risk (Sand miners eat away at 300 acres of mangroves, June 5). At the time, the Thane collectorate had given assurances that it would take stern action and eradicate this menace. However, as this paper pointed out last week, despite the authorities claims of coming down hard on the miners, the illegal activity was still on in full swing at the Diva-Dombivli stretch (Authorities fail to rein in sand mining at Ulhas creek, July 3). Following the second report, however, mid-day visited the Diva-Dombivli belt to find that not only had the sand mining stopped, all the boats and equipment had been removed from the spot as well. However, instead of a complete halt, the sand miners simply moved to the area near the Mumbra-Diva slow track bridge (passing over Desai khadi (creek). Dangerous Environmentalists are of the opinion that the new spot is even more dangerous as it could affect the railway bridge located just a few metres away. If sand dredging is going on near the Mumbra-Diva slow track bridge, then the concerned authorities should take action immediately because if it continues, then the sand mining may have an impact on the bridges stability, said environmentalist Rishi Aggarwal. I think the government authorities are waiting for the bridge to fall, because if dredging continues there, it can be a threat to the structure of the bridge. It is impossible for such mining activity to continue without support from the government machinery, echoed activist Stalin Dayanand, from the NGO Vanashakti.When mid-day approached the Collectors office, an official said, The tehsildar who is in charge of the area has already been taking action from time to time, and a few days ago, some trucks carrying illegal sand were also caught and complaints were registered as per the law. Minister speak Senior Shiv Sena leader and state Environment Minister Ramdas Kadam told mid-day, I will immediately ask the concerned official to look into the matter and action will be taken against those involved in sand dredging at the Diva, Dombivli and Mumbra areas.

Only one-fourth of road to be used to erect pandals: Thane Municipal CorporationNishikant KarlikarNishikant Karlikar,TNN | Jul 9, 2015, 06.56 AM ISTShare on Linkedin CommentsMoreGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleEmail this articleSave this articleMy Saved articlesPrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizecommentsShare MoreEmail this articleSave this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizeGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleMy Saved articlesRELATEDOnly one-fourth of the road shall be allowed to erect pandals or stage during the festivities leaving the remaining 75 per cent of the road for public use, states the recent guidelines framed by the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) for hosting festivals. Based on High Courts order following public interest litigation (PIL) by Thane based Dr Mahesh Bedekar who had urged for the implementation of an Act formed in 2000 to regulate and control noise pollution and the setting up of temporary pandals during various festivals, the TMC had laid the guidelines and has been submitted it to the HC. It is learnt that in the past, the organizers were allowed to use 50 per cent of the roads for festivals. In 2012, the limits changed it to one-third but now it has been further narrowed to one-fourth with the new set of guidelines. The swanky pandals erected on the roads are affiliated to a political party had inconvenienced the citizens. It also resulted in serpentine queue of vehicles honking and emitting smoke. "Action will be taken against the one who is found violating the rules and erecting illegal pandals without any prior permission of the civic authorities," said a civic official quoting the guidelines. For all the festivities of cutting across the religions, the Thane Municipal commissioner is empowered to give permission for erecting pandals on the road in accordance with consent from the police commissioner under section 234 of Bombay Provincial Municipal Corporations Act, 1949. The guidelines clearly states that if the proposed pandal is in the way of the public transport—then it should leave a space of 12 feets for passing through. Also, it has clearly stated that under no circumstances the public roads should be dug or punched for erecting the pandals. Instead as an alternative and suggested to make the foundation of stage should be on poles or bamboo sticks that are firmly placed in sand-filled drums. Failing to follow the rule, the mandal could face legal action. Under no circumstances, permission would be given to erect pandals on the roads of eight feets. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/followceleb.cms?alias=Stay updated on the go with Times of India News App. Click here to download it for your device.

Post your opinion here   City-based realty player Lodha Developers on Thursday said its IPO style pre-launch of the affordable luxury residential project in Thane has received over 2,500 applications from prospective buyers. "Lodha has closed applications for the pre-launch of its world-class neighbourhood in Thane. Over 2,500 applications were received during the nine-day IPO-style pre-launch which closed on July 5," the company said in a statement. With a robust wait-list of nearly 500 applicants already, this is shaping up to be one of the biggest and most unique real estate offerings for the year, company's Deputy Managing Director Abhinandan Lodha said. "Surpassing conventional methods, we sought to bring a whole new generation of people who have until now not been able to take part in the market, the chance for larger participation in finding the right home at a unique price point. This sort of value to our customers, which has been so well received," he said. The IPO-style pre-launch of luxury housing was simultaneously done across the globe in New York, London, Dubai, Singapore and Hong Kong and all parts of India. "Priced at Rs 55 lakh onwards, these 1 and 2 bed smart-sized premium homes indicates the growing demand for under Rs one crore ticket sizes in the region for quality developments," Lodha said. Under this format, allocations will be made using an automated allotment process, ensuring a very objective mechanism which is fair to all. "Such a model is being used for the first time in the affordable luxury segment, and is sure to change the way in which real estate is sold. The first set of allotments will roll out by second week of July," he added. In January 2013, the company had first introduced the IPO-styled pre-launch for its premium residential project -- Blue Moon-- at Worli, which witnessed more than 1,300 applications from prospective buyers.

A Kharghar resident mobilised a group of people to find shelter for a pregnant woman, who was living at Thane railway station for the past week. Vijay Patil, who works for a real estate firm, approached the Railway Protection Force (RPF), the Government Railway Police (GRP), and the Thane police to help the woman, and finally, on Wednesday night, she was admitted to the Thane Civil Hospital. The woman, in her late twenties, is educated, and speaks fluent English, but appears to be mentally disturbed. Patil first spotted her at Thane station's platform no. 10 on July 2. Since then, a Facebook post he had put up highlighting her plight has been shared several times. People from different parts of the city offered to do rounds of the station closest to their homes to keep an eye out for her as she kept moving from station to station, while others have offered medical help. On Wednesday, Patil and Ayushi Dedhia, a freelancing event manager, managed to bring the woman to Naupada Police Station, which issued her a treatment memo to facilitate her admission to the Thane Civil Hospital. The woman first approached Patil asking him for Rs 500. "I told her it was too much money to give to a beggar. She took offence and asked, 'Do I look like a beggar? I am a science graduate. I want to buy clothes and food'." After some convincing, the woman told Patil that her name was Nisha (she told the police her name was Sonali), and that she used to work as a nurse in Saviour Hospital, Kolkata. She had several cigarette burn marks on her legs. "I asked her where she lives. She said that the platform is her home. She told me she recently found out that her husband was having an affair with her sister. Her mother had sided with them. She did not want to talk about how she ended up homeless," Patil said. Patil then told her that she could find work in Mumbai and offered to get her luggage from her home. "She said that her family would not entertain me," Patil said. Patil approached an RPF personnel deployed on platform no. 10 of the Thane station. "He refused saying it was not his responsibility and told me to call the women's helpline. I dialled 103 and was shocked when they said they cannot help, and that I should call the local police station. I called 100, the police control room. An officer arrived but said that the lady was on the railway premises and it was the GRP's jurisdiction." Patil then approached two women RPF officers on platform no. 2. "They also refused to help and said I should go to the station master. I went to the station master's office where the deputy station master asked if I could take responsibility of the woman and get her to a hospital. I said I would." He was then introduced to GRP hawaldar Manik Kisan Pawar. "I went to look for the woman but could not find her. We cannot help unless there is a lady officer with us, and at that time there was no one as it was very late. It is the RPF's duty to handle these cases," Pawar said. Station master S M Malidhar told Mirror, "We offer help to everyone in need. But there are so many people sitting on the platform that it is difficult to figure out who is doing what. Please check with the GRP." Dinesh Nair, the inspector incharge at Thane RPF, said he would look into the matter. Asked why RPF personnel refused help, he said, "These are allegations which have to be confirmed. I will look into the matter. It is the station master's responsibility to handle these cases and inform us so that we can take action." While no assistance came from the cops, Patil's friends and also complete strangers have stepped up to help. The Jeev Anand Sanstha has offered to shelter the woman, while others spoke to her to her convince her to move to a shelter. Ayushi Dedhia also tried to convince Nisha to move to a shelter. "She is heavily pregnant, and did not seem mentally ill, but deeply disturbed going by the way she spoke. She had also applied make up in a very haphazard way. It seemed like she had had a breakdown," Dedhia said. Dr Smita Akale, who works with an NGO called Jeevan Anand Seva Sanstha, said that the woman could be suffering from schizophrenia. "She is extremely defensive and keeps asking why we are trying to help when she doesn't want any."

2015-07-07Civic bodies, industries to pay heavily for pollut
Civic bodies, industries to pay heavily for polluting Thane rivers By Dharmendra Jore |Posted 2 hours In a judgement last week, the National Green Tribunal pulled up the authorities and local industries for polluting Ulhas and Waldhuni rivers with sewage and industrial effluents; directed culprits to cough up crores to clean and ensure further pollution doesn’t take place In a major victory for environmentalists and residents of Thane district, the National Green Tribunal has directed the state and local industries to take concrete steps to prevent the pollution of the Ulhas and Waldhuni rivers. In fact, no new industrial units will be allowed, neither will expansion of existing units, until measures are taken to protect the rivers that provide drinking water to thousands in the district. Widespread pollution was taking place at Ulhas and Waldhuni rivers, which had become a dumping spot for sewage from local municipal bodies and effluents from industrial units in the vicinity. Pic for representation/Thinkstock Taking cognisance of the widespread pollution of the rivers in its judgment on July 2 (in a petition filed by Mumbai-based environment non-profit group Vanashakti Public Trust), the tribunal asked local industries in Dombivli and Ambernath to shell out Rs 30 crore and Rs 15 crore respectively, for the restitution and restoration of treatment plants for effluents in their respective influence areas. “There is no escape from the conclusion that the industries are liable to pay damages caused due to the water pollution, restore the environment and ensure that there shall be no further pollution in the river Ulhas due to discharging of industrial effluents from the units run by the industries,” said the bench, comprising Justice V R Kingaonkar and Dr Ajay A Deshpande. Apart from industries, the tribunal also found the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) falling short on its duty to treat industrial waste in the area. The petitioners told the bench that although MIDC had provided Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) in areas such as Ambernath, Dombivli, Badlapur etc, these were either inadequate or not operated efficiently, resulting in the discharge of large quantities of effluents in the water. MIDC has been asked to commission the effluent disposal systems within 24 months, and submit a bank guarantee of R10 crore to the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) to ensure compliance. MPCB will also oversee the work to repair and enhance the capacity of the treatment plants. Even local municipal corporations were pulled up for flouting pollution control norms and dumping untreated sewage in the rivers, and will now have to spend huge amounts to fix their blunder. Six weeks to complyThe Ulhasnagar and Kalyan-Dombivli corporations have been asked to deposit R15 crore each with the divisional commissioner for restoration and restitution measures. The Kulgaon-Badlapur and Ambernath municipal councils shall also pay Rs 5 crore each. The parties responsible will have to cough up the required money in six weeks, after which it will be used on sewage treatment plants and to clean Ulhas and Waldhuni rivers within 18 months. “The Divisional Commissioner shall use this amount for the implementation of scientific programmes to clean the rivers and ensure that no further riverine pollution occurs hereafter, as well as on restoration and remedial measures like the removal of sludge accumulated in the river and the beautification of river banks, in order to protect the river from any unauthorised dumping of wastes,” said the judgement, which also recommended that legal action be taken against the errant civic bodies.

In the last 18 months, police have registered 36 cases and arrested 68 persons for peddling drugs. A record released by the anti-narcotics cell of Thane police on Friday on the occasion of International Day against Drug Abuse revealed that the favourite among youth is Mephedrone (MD) also known as meow-meow drug. "In the last two years, MD has swiftly gained in popularity and its consumption has risen," said Mandar Dharmadhikari, senior police inspector of anti-narcotics cell. The main reason for the rising demand of MD is because of its easy availability. "Due to its hassle-free manufacturing in small units away from the city , simple methods of consumption by missing with cold drinks, ice-cream or even sniffing, MD has become a rage among youngsters," Dharmadhikari told TOI. The police said lack of awareness among parents is a growing concern as many youngsters are falling prey to the drugs. "Parents should keep a watch on their children and observe them and their daily activities closely," said the officer. "In a few cases, after parents approached us and told about their kids being addicted to MD, we arrested the peddlers," said a senior police officer. The officer added that the Thane police commissioner has given strict instructions to the staff to crackdown on peddlers.

City transport dept sees fall in registration of heavy vehicles THANE: The Thane transport department has witnessed a drop in the number of tanker, trucks and lorry registration in the year 2014-15. Industry sources have attributed this decline of registrations to the moving out of many industries out of Thane. According to the figures from the road transport department, 3,071 trucks were registered in 2014-15, while 8,680 were registered early this year. Close Home Thane City transport dept sees fall in registration of heavy vehicles NYOOOZ Thane Mon,06 Jul 2015 Times of India ---- Mon,06 Jul 2015 5 ---, --- THANE: The Thane transport department has witnessed a drop in the number of tanker, trucks and lorry registration in the year 2014-15. While the department saw a drop of nearly 90% of tanker registrations, around 65% dip was seen in trucks and lorry registrations. Industry sources have attributed this decline of registrations to the moving out of many industries out of Thane. Meanwhile, the city has witnessed a rise in the number of three-wheeler freight vans and four-wheeler freight vans. According to the figures from the road transport department, 3,071 trucks were registered in 2014-15, while 8,680 were registered early this year. The number of tankers being registered saw a drop from 2,480 being registered in 2013-14 to 239 in the last financial year. "There is a steady flow of industries moving out of Thane to suburbs like Ambernath, Badlapur and Panvel. As most of these transport firms supply material to manufacturing units that are outside the city, it is obvious they would relocate there," said Eknath Sonawane, member of the Thane small scale industries association. The association said that nearly 100 big manufacturing units have moved out of the city in the last decade. State transport officials agree that heavy vehicles have been slowly moving to Panvel and other industrial belts like Raigad that is seeing a growth in numbers of industries setting up. S P Singh, secretary of the Bombay Goods Transport Association, agrees with this shift among transporters and said that another major reason for the drift is the stringent laws enforced by the transport department in Maharashtra. "The authorities here are enforcing laws that mandate presence of owners, forcing many to register their vehicles in neighboruing states," sa...

Thane chief orders beautification of the Kalwa creek promenade Manoj Badgeri,TNN| Jul 5, 2015, 06.53 AM IST part of his commitment to improve the infrastructure in Thane suburbs, the Thane civic chief Sanjeev Jaiswal on Saturday evening paid visit to Kalwa creek promenade. He also inspected several areas in the vicinity and directed his officials to improve the civic infrastructure in Kalwa ward number 46. Jaiswal, accompanied by his staff and local corporators, ensured that several vital issues related to bridging missing road links in the suburb to beautification of creek sides and demolishing of illegal and dilapidated structures in the area were addressed. To start with, the civic chief ordered the beautification of the Kharton creek promenade in Kalwa. There is a good potential for exploring the scenic beauty of the spot for tourism purpose if the area was developed, informed a local resident. Jaiswal directed his officials to develop an immersion point for festive idols along with creating a garden or recreation at the spot. "The civic chief wanted a replica of the Nakshatravan garden and an idol immersion site at the opposite side of the creek. The existing state is not in good condition and the civic chief wants it to be developed into a scenic spot," said a civic official who was present at the site. The issue of a missing road link between Budhaji Nagar to Kalwa railway station was also presented before the official. Residents from this area have to take a long detour to reach the railway station following which officials informed Jaiswal of a DP road provision. The work of developing the road was held up because of some residential structures that came in the way to which the commissioner reportedly suggested proper rehabilitation of the residents and developing the missing link. Following repeated complaints of civic apathy towards illegal structures springing up in the area, the civic chief also reportedly ordered quick demolition of unauthorized structures and dilapidated structures in the area.

The creek runs along the Central Railway line, and commuters can easily spot the dredging activity carried out, usually from 6.30 am to 9.30 am, and then again from 5.30 pm to around midnight. This, despite the fact that last month, officials from the Collectors office and the local police had said they were cracking down on sand miners and even confiscating and dismantling their equipment. mid-day had highlighted that not only was this creating an ecological risk by wiping out the mangroves and the local biodiversity, but the dredging was slowly turning the creek into a flood risk. Despite several attempts, Thane Collector Ashwini Joshi could not be reached, however, an official from the Collectors office told this paper, We have been taking action at regular intervals and during our raids in the past months, we had even dismantled the machines so that the sand mafia could not use it again. However, sometimes we are not able to reach the spot because there is no road access to the location and we don't have boats either. The very fact that the government and the Thane collectors office have yet not taken action against those illegally dredging between Dombivli and Diva despite the issue being highlighted in the media, proves that the authorities are least concerned. The Mumbra, Diva and Kalva belt has been in news for these notorious activities and so the department responsible for tackling this menace should do something, rather than giving excuses, said Stalin Dayanand from the NGO Vanashakti.

Thane: 'School's attempt to reduce bag weight is a burden on us,' claim parents By Shreya Bhandary |Posted 3 hours Parents claim the Vidya Niketan School at Dombivli is adding to their expenses, causing mental pressure and creating more work for students While the state education department is insisting on reducing the weight of school bags, schools too have been introducing innovations to support the same. The parents of students at Vidya Niketan School want the management to give clear directions and not change their rules as per their whim. However, some parents of students studying at Vidya Niketan School in Dombivli, have protested that the various ideas initiated by the management, while reducing the weight of school bags, are becoming a burden on them. They say they are adding to expenses and leading to mental pressure and more work for students. The school is introducing new ideas to attempt to reduce the weight of school bags. The school first asked parents to send full-scape sheets to school with children so that they don't have to carry notebooks. Many parents complained that students were misplacing these sheets, leading to more trouble during exams, so this was dropped and a new method introduced this year. Meanwhile, most of us have already spent way too much on dozens of full-scape sheets and other stationery like files, etc, said one of the parents. This year, the school first asked parents to send only a 100-page notebook, but parents allege that this was again changed, and parents were again asked to buy long notebooks. The new idea by the school involved our children carrying only one long book for notes, and later come back home and copy whatever has been taught in school into separate notebooks of different subjects. While the school authorities are thinking they are reducing the physical pressure on children, they are increasing the mental pressure on children, added another parent. Some parents have also written to the school about this, and are hoping for the management to give clear directions and not keep changing their rules and regulations on a whim. Principal speak When mid-day contacted the school principal Vivek Pandit, he called these issues as teething problems. Every time a change is introduced, it takes a while for parents/students to adjust to it. Last year also, while some parents had opposed the full-scape pages, a large number of parents had also appreciated the same. We are currently trying to find the best way to reduce the physical burden on students, said Pandit. He added that complaints of parents have been received, and they will be discussed with all in a PTA meeting. While Pandit said that carrying lighter notebooks will benefit students in the long run, he added that the purpose of taking few notes in class, was to encourage students to pay attention in class, and build on what has already been taught, rather than depend on notes provided by teachers. All textbooks have questions and answers so there is no need for students to take down everything in class as part of notes. We are trying to encourage students to only jot down the important parts in class during lectures, he said, and added that parents have misunderstood the concept. Students have been asked to only copy those notes that are important into their individual subject books, not all that is taught in class. It's just the beginning, so everybody seems hassled, but they will soon get used to it, we hope, added Pandit.

We have complained to the civic authorities about this but till date there has been no relief for us,'' said Mahendra Patil, a resident of Chandanwadi. Engineers from the water supply department said that there were some technical issues which would be resolved soon and supply will be restored by Wednesday night. But residents have been an upset lot as they have to bear the brunt of this. ''This isn't the first time that we have been deprived of water. It has become an everyday affair. The TMC isn't doing anything to fix the problem. We are totally dependent on tanker water currently which may be contaminated during the monsoon,'' said a Kharkarali resident Pradip Renge. Meanwhile, mayor Sanjay More said, ''I had a meeting with the concerned officials soon after the complaints started pouring in. I also visited the site on Tuesday and monitored the situation myself.
