Mumbai: Loud music to traffic, 100 has its plate full 19.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The control room of Mumbai police received nearly 1.6 crore calls from citizens last year, with complaints ranging from noise pollution to parking issues to troubles created by drunks and drug users. That’s a 120 per cent jump from the calls recorded in 2016. The rise in the number of calls to 100 – the police control room – is a sign of growing awareness and trust in the force, said officers. The city police shared the data with activist Shakeel Ahmad in response to his application under the Right to Information Act. Most calls were received during the last four months of the year when a number of festivals are celebrated. Majority of the gripes is about loud music, firecrackers and traffic-related problems caused by pandals.

Noise, traffic, drunk calls: 101 reasons to call cops in Mumbai 19.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Inebriated people desiring to vent their frustration, residents harrowed by noise during festivals, people with a knack for verbal abuse -- these are some of the callers the Mumbai police control attends to on a daily basis, with a volume of hundreds of calls at any given point of time. "Mumbai police receive almost 43,000 calls on an average every day. Of the 43 thousand calls, almost 50 per cent calls are either blank calls, drunk calls, or calls that do not result in any intervention from police or are the result of wrong or mistaken dialers," said a police source. Out of the 1.58 crore calls received by the Mumbai police control room in 2017, around 70 lakh calls were received only between September and December. The high number of calls, police claim, is due to the festive season which causes noise pollution due to firecrackers, loudspeakers in pandals and traffic jams. Mumbai police's control room, refurbished not very long ago, is situated at its headquarters in Crawford Market and has 48 ...

Sion flyover work to begin after rains 4.6.2018 DNA: Popular News
In a major relief for motorists, the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has said that the Sion flyover on Eastern Express Highway (EEH) will not be shut during monsoon considering the renovation work on the flyover has been postponed until the end of monsoon. Earlier, the MSRDC had plans to shut the flyover for renovation work in April. However, as the repair work did not get any contractors bidding for the same, it was postponed till May. A MSRDC official said, "We have not been able to appoint any contractor yet. Now, we have decided that the contractor will be appointed during monsoon and flyover will be shut for repairs only post monsoon as renovation cannot be carried out during heavy downpour. Also, there will be increased traffic congestion due to the halt on the flyover." The MSRDC plans to replace more than 150 bearings on the flyover at an estimated cost of Rs 5 crore.  The repair work is being initiated after a study by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Bombay had ...

Cong & NCP slam govt over fuel price rise 24.5.2018 General News
Opposition Congress and NCP today hit out at the Centre and Maharashtra government over the fuel price hike and questioned the silence of those who had attacked the previous UPA-led dispensation over the issue. Maharashtra NCP chief Jayant Patil said the fuel price hike is breaking every past record. "The promise of 'achhe din' was a jumla (rhetoric). Once upon a time, these BJP leaders used to give extempore speeches against petrol price rise, but now they can't even give a simple clarification," he said. Accusing the BJP at the Centre and state of filling its own coffers by levying taxes on petrol and diesel, Patil said, "The costliest fuel in the world is sold in India...and the costliest in the country is sold in Maharashtra." The former state finance minister said if the government decreases VAT on petrol/diesel, there will be some relief. "The Centre should reduce excise duty on petrol/ diesel," he said. Mumbai Congress president Sanjay Nirupam led a protest ...
