Civic authorities’ negligence: The accident-prone spot at Nagpur’s Hingna road that left several injured..

The accident-prone spot at Hingna road Nagpur starts from Ambazari lake Y-point to Hingna T-point. The stretch is filled with potholes and damaged surface layer below Subhash Nagar Metro Rail Station.

A 49-year-old man died on the same stretch after an unidentified car hit his motorcycle on January 3. “Eight accidents have happened in the last eight days below the metro station. The entire patch used to be under water during the monsoon due to lack of storm water drain. The road is severely damaged below and after the station. Still, MahaMetro is doing nothing. I informed MahaMetro MD Brijesh Dixit many time, and requested him to repaur the road. But he did not pay heed. MahaMetro is responsible for the death and injuries to cirizens,” as said by West Nagpur MLA Vikas Thakre to TOI

Reportedly, NMC says that the road falls under PWD’s jurisdiction and PWD says that the stretch from over-flow point to Hingna T-point is under NMC.

Nagpur: NMC to launch garbage treatment project to produce renewable energy




Juhi Kochar | Nagpur

Nagpur Municipal Corporation

On Sunday, November 13, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) was given the go-ahead to launch the project to use garbage treatment to produce renewable energy, bio-CNG, biogas, compost, and other materials by Deputy CM and Guardian Minister Devendra Fadnavis. He approved the concept put out by SusBDE-Sustainable Business Development, a private business based in the Netherlands.

On 17 August, the Dutch company won the tender with the lowest bid. The company had received a Letter of Acceptance (LoA) from NMC, and the agreement is anticipated to be implemented soon. The company’s chairman Jaap Veenenbos and a municipal commissioner, Rad Radhakrishnan B presented the planned project to Fadnavis on Sunday. Fadnavis instructed NMC to create a time-bound schedule for carrying out the project.

If the idea is successful, NMC will be able to eliminate 1,000 metric tons (MT) of the 1,200 MT of daily garbage collected without investing a single dime. A major benefit for the cash-strapped NMC is the Netherlands-based company’s quote for nominal tipping costs of Rs 1 per metric ton (MT). Additionally, the business proposed to pay NMC a ₹15 lakh royalty in the first year, followed by a cut of the profits. All products made from garbage will be eligible for sale by the corporation.

According to NMC officials, the project will require the corporation to invest about ₹300 crore. Additionally, the corporation has been offered a number of choices, including the creation of a material recovery facility (MRF) for dry waste.

Since 2009, NMC has been looking for private companies to handle the 1,200 MT of garbage produced in the city each day. Unfortunately, NMC was unable to find an operator, and as a result, a sizable amount of trash was lying at the Bhandiwadi dumping yard, contributing to numerous sorts of pollution.

Dog in small cage

Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) could not be seen abiding by the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI), Animal Birth Control (ABC) laws and also the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act. Since the NMC began caging the stray animals on October 27 in the city, it has continued to violate the rules and recommendations.

The NMC had kept the first group of six stray dogs picked up from Ramdaspeth in cages for 13 days despite the law’s requirement that they be released after seven days from the same place, from which they were picked up.

Speaking about the six dogs that were picked up on October 27 from Ramdaspeth, NMC veterinary officer Dr Gajendra Mahalle told TOI that they would be freed within 10 days. However, as of Wednesday, the NMC has not yet released them. However, Dr Mahalle assured that the dogs were kept in good condition.

Lawyer and activist Ankita Shah told TOI, “I contacted Dr Mahalle and asked him the reason behind not releasing the six strays of Ramdaspeth till date. I also informed him about the rules. Dr Mahalle said the canines will be released after two or more days. This is brazen violation of rules and cruelty towards the speechless.”

She added, “The cages where the canines have been kept are not as per norms. Caged stray dogs can be seen not getting enough space for movement. All these are violations of AWBI rules, ABC and also the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act. Therefore, the concerned NMC officials are liable to face action.”

The guidelines of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) published by AWBI recommends keeping dogs in cages that are three feet wide, three feet tall, and three feet deep. According to AWBI, such cages are not appropriate for the long-term confinement of dogs.
