Dipen Agrawal (President, CAMIT) submitting CAMIT’s demand to Cabinet Minister Dr Nitin Raut
Reacting to NMC Commissioner Tukaram Mundhes recent directives to business establishments to obtain license from the civic body, Dipen Agrawal, President of Chamber of Associations of Maharashtra Industry and Trade (CAMIT) said that Mundhes directives are ultra vires to the Maharashtra Municipal Corporation Act, 1949. According to Agrawal, Mundhes action is not only arbitrary but is also against the well settled proposition of law.
Agrawal added, Municipal Commissioner has assumed arbitrary and unbridled discretionary powers to regulate all business/commercial activities within the city limits of Nagpur, whereas the Act empowers him to regulate only selective commodities above specified quantities and activities, which may create nuisance or danger to public safety and health. Section 376 of Maharashtra Municipal Corporation Act, Section 229 of Nagpur Municipal Corporation Act, Section 394 of Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act and Sections 280 and 281 of Maharashtra Municipal Council, Nagar Panchayats and Industrial Township Act operate in the same field i.e. to regulate certain activities so that they do not cause any danger to the health and property of the residents.
Agrawal said, The powers of Municipal Commissioner are not absolute. They are subjected to approval and sanctions from corporation and Standing Committee as prescribed in the Act. It appears that the Commissioner has circumvented the provisions of the MMC Act regarding sanction from Corporation to fix fee and has assumed the power to revise the same from time to time.

Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
