Four hours of downpour bring city to a halt 21.7.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Thousands of commuters stuck at various places, five underpasses shut down and people wading through over one-feet-deep water. Just four hours of heavy downpour on Thursday evening that brought less than two inches of rainfall turned Smart City into a Sinking City. Though the weather remained overall dry till afternoon, heavy rains started lashing the city at 4.30pm. Within four hours, the city had received 43mm rainfall, turning many parts into islands However, while most areas were grappling with heavy waterlogging and roads had turned into a chaotic mess, the civic body was busy approving Rs10 crore for the heritage festival celebrations slated in August.

As per fresh details emerging from the latest development at Admissions Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC), of the 260 B Planning seats offered by various institutes across Gujarat, 220 are to be filled through ACPC and of those 220, only 34 have been filled so far.
