DNA EXCLUSIVE: Mumbai has to maintain position as commercial engine, says Ajoy Mehta 24.5.2018 DNA: Top News
Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation ( BMC) hopes the Development Plan 2034 & Development Control Rules will help Mumbai maintain its pre-eminence as a commercial engine. In an exclusive interview, city civic chief Ajoy Mehta clears ambiguities and misconceptions about the city's new Development Plan (DP). Will opening of No Development Zone (NDZ) come at the cost of the environment and benefit only builders? That is a misnomer -- NDZ was never a no-development zone. In the 1967 and 1991 DPs, Floor Space Index (FSI) of 0.5 was allowed on NDZ. Of the 13,000 hectares of NDZ in Greater Mumbai, 10,000 hectare is marked as Natural Area (NA). What is left is 3,000 hectare, of which 700 to 800 hectare has slums. Hence we are left with about 2,200 hectare, which we are taking up for development. If the NDZ land, which we call Social Development Zone (SDZ), has to be developed, the owner will have to divide and allot one-third for housing, one-third for open space and one-third for sale. We have marked a huge ...

Gujarat: Solar power project on CRZ in Dholera 11.5.2018 DNA: India
The Gujarat government will establish a 5,000MW solar park at Dholera Special Investment Region (SIR) over 11,000 hectare (110 sq km) land and the same land falls under the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ). As per rule, no activity, except for exploration of gas and extraction of salt, could be done in CRZ. The government has, however, received special permission to establish the solar power project in the area falling under SIR. The principal secretary to Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Manoj Das, said, "We did not want that single inch of SIR to be wasted, and we wanted full utilisation of 900 square km area. This 110-square-km area falls under CRZ and no activity could be run there to maintain the ecosystem of the coastal area. We received special permission from central government's ministry of environment and forest as the solar power plant does not harm the ecology. This will not only optimise the utilisation of land but will also raise a great source of green energy that will be required by a smart city ...

JSW Steel may go ahead with 12 mtpa Odisha steel project sans captive port 10.5.2018 Business Standard: News Now
Sajjan Jindal led JSW Steel might have to settle for its 12 million tonne mega steel mill proposed in Odisha without a captive port project. The port project, part of the steel maker's consolidated investment package, was considered key to its operations in the state. On the captive port, JSW Steel had pledged an investment of Rs 20 billion and chose Jatadhari Muhan, a site located 13 km from the limits of the major port at Paradip.The Odisha government is not keen to allow private players to build captive ports. Instead, the government will award identified port sites through competitive bidding so that they can be developed as commercial ports, said an official source in the know."In case of JSW Steel, we are not in agreement with their idea of a captive port. What we can offer as an alternative to the company is a captive jetty. But, a decision on the captive jetty is not firmed up yet", the source added.The Odisha government has roped in Mecon Ltd to study the feasibility of the ..

Thane civic body gets no HC relief over waste dumping matter 7.5.2018 General News
The Bombay High Court has refused to grant any relief to the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) that had challenged a local court order denying it permission to dump solid waste at a private plot of land. Justice Mridula Bhatkar, presiding over the appeal filed by the TMC, also rapped the civic body for persisting with the said litigation even though a civil judge and the district court in Thane had found that the corporation had illegally been dumping solid waste at the site. In an order passed last week, Justice Bhatkar reminded the corporation that it was a "public body" that must adopt a "citizen-friendly approach," and not act as a "hostile", private litigant when it came to issues of public interest. The HC was hearing a second appeal filed by the TMC against a 2012 order of the Thane district and sessions court upholding a previous order of a local civil judge restraining the civic body from dumping any kind of waste, whether treated, or untreated, on the said site. The civil .

Supreme Court sets aside NGT order against Adani's Hazira Port 3.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
In a relief to the Adani Group, the Supreme Court has set aside the National Green Tribunal's (NGT) order cancelling the the environmental clearance granted to Adani's port in Hazira, Surat. In 2016, the NGT had set aside the 2013 environmental clearance of the port following a petition against Adani Hazira Port Pvt Ltd by fishermen group — Hazira Macchimar Samiti. The Samiti had alleged before NGT that the port developer had commenced construction work in 2010, reclaiming port backup area and constructing berths without transfer of environmental clearance or seeking fresh Coastal Regulation Zone permission. The Adani Hazira Port had filed an appeal against the order in Supreme Court, which set aside the NGT direction in its order dated April 23, 2018. "The counsel for the parties state that the matter has been settled for the satisfaction of the fishermen who have also been paid adequate compensation. We are also informed that mangroves have been planted at some other place. In view thereof, since the ...

Coastal Regulation Zone relaxation adds to woes of fisherfolk 25.4.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The Akhil Maharashtra Machhimar Kriti Samiti on Wednesday raised a slew of issues that they said were not just threatening their livelihood but also their existence. These included the use of LED and pursing nets by trawlers that were leading to the fishes disappearing from the sea. Besides this, the latest on the list of worries of the fisherfolk is the recent CRZ relaxation which they claim will end up helping builders capture their lands. "Due to a number of trawlers and pursing nets, the fishes have disappeared from the sea bed for the past four months. These trawlers use LED lights when they come to fish at night. The lights are flashed on the water allowing the fish to gather at one spot and then the pursing nets capture them, leaving no fish in the sea," said Damodar Tandel, president of the Samiti in a press conference at Cuffe Parade. Due to this, Tandel said that for the past four months most of the fishermen have had nothing at hand despite going to sea. They have to stay at home because ...
