Traffic lessons from streets of Kathmandu 26.5.2018 The Tribune
Ishrat S Banwait THE increasing traffic woes in Chandigarh have prompted city residents to compare the situation with other metro cities. Meanwhile, people in those metros call Chandigarh a heaven in comparison. While both are right in their own way, it is a fact that the volume of traffic in the tricity has been increasing at the rate of knots. The Administration is taking multiple steps to tackle it and the traffic police are trying its best to regulate it. However, the residents need to chip in as well.  A recent visit to Kathmandu was a lesson, revealing as to how residents can do their bit. The traffic situation in some places is worse than Chandigarh. However, there was one habit of all drivers that stood out and had to be taken note of. While no marked lanes were seen, the left lane, more often, stays completely empty. This, even when there are no slip roads and even if there is a lot of traffic.  While this practice allows vehicles to turn left in no time, preventing chaos, it also allows a lane ...

Crime brings auto drivers under lens 26.5.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, May 23 The city has witnessed some major crime incidents involving autos in the past year and a half. The recent incident of a youth riding an auto, who tried to rape a fashion designer, is a grim reminder of auto drivers involved in heinous crimes. While two incidents of gang rape involving auto drivers have been reported in the past, in another incident, a girl had fallen out of an auto under mysterious circumstances.  Auto-rickshaws in the city are a vital mode of transportation with many youngsters and officer-goers hiring these to reach their destinations. The autos, however, have come under the scanner in the recent past due to drivers' involvement in various crimes.  On December 12, 2016, a 21-year-old call centre employee was gangraped while returning home from work by an auto driver and his accomplice at knifepoint in a forest area in Sector 29.  The victim had hired the auto from the road separating Sector 34 and 21 on Dakshin Marg to reach Hallo Majra around 8 ...

Tribune News Service Chandigarh, May 24 The 15-year-old victim, who was being sexually exploited by his tutor for over two months, was among the toppers in Class VIII. However, the just declared Class IX results came as a shock for the family as the victim just managed to pass. The dip in his performance may have actually saved him from further going through the ordeal. The victim told counsellors that he was not aware whether what was happening with him was right or wrong. He was just following his teacher’s instructions. The father of the victim, who sells fruit on a footpath, said his son had always been brilliant at school. Recognising that he may require tuitions as he was now in Class IX, they approached Raj Kamal Devi in September 2017 for giving tuitions to the victim in science and mathematics, along with his sister, who was in Class V at that time.

e-way bill system comes into force in city today 26.5.2018 The Tribune

Chandigarh, May 24

The Centre has made e-way bills mandatory for the movement of goods exceeding the value of Rs 50,000 within the city. The e-way bill system will be implemented in the city from Friday.

Sources said a notification in this regard was issued recently. A buyer purchasing goods worth over Rs 50,000 will now be required to procure an e-way bill from the vendor. It is a document required for transportation of goods from one place to another on motorised vehicles. It will not be applicable in case goods are transported on conveyances such as rehri, rickshaw etc.

Ajay Jagga, an advocate, asked why should a GST assessee in a small city like Chandigarh, which has an area of 110 sq km, generate e-way bill for the intra-city movement of goods.

Earlier, the Centre had exempted the UT from the e-way bill system. Sources in the Excise Department said action would be taken against those violating the GST rules. — TNS
