On-site thefts puts Metro contractors on the edge 21.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Civil contractors working on the three Metro projects are having a tough time in securing heavy equipment and machinery from thieves who tend to steal them from construction sites. DNA spoke with several representatives from the firms carrying out Metro civil works for the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), who said that incidents of theft are taking place every other night at Dahisar-DN Nagar Metro-2A corridor and Dahisar East-Andheri East Metro-7 corridor construction sites. "There are times when steel, iron or rubber is lifted. These thefts take place in the night when culprits can take advantage of the dark," said a top representative from a firm carrying out Metro construction work.

Those were the days we thought world never end 21.8.2017
It is that time of year when waves of Madras nostalgia descend on us as we prepare to celebrate the city"s birthday. Beginning with the advent of the East India Company to these shores may give us a shorter history of the city, but it carries certain convenience as the era is, perhaps, better recorded. The "pattinam" itself goes back a long way, but for most part today"s metropolis would have been a sleepy cluster of fishing villages. Even the city"s artificial harbour is much younger and had nought to do with the early seafaring conquests of the Cholas who ruled way further south. The more important place in the region in early history was Kancheepuram which was ruled by a representative of the Chola family, then taken over by the Satavahanas from Andhra and then went to the Pallavas before being ruled once again by the Cholas in their ninth and 10th century heyday. The Pallavas gave the region close to the city its most famous temples on the beach, of which just one ...

State's sea levels may rise by 0.38 metre by 2050 21.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Few decades on, structures near Mumbai's seashores may be inundated by rising sea levels. In what may drastically alter perceptions about climate change and its impact on coastal cities like Mumbai, a state government study has predicted a 0.38 metre rise in sea levels across Maharashtra by 2050. The Maharashtra Maritime Board's (MMB) shoreline management plan (SMP) has suggested that construction near the coast in Mumbai must rise to a minimum 7.59 metres above mean sea levels by 2050 to withstand storm surges and floods. While Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notifications regulate a 500 metre horizontal region from the high-tide line, the SMP lays down a vertical impact of the sea-level rise. This can be incorporated into urban and land use planning, serving as baseline data for planners executing shoreline infrastructure projects like Mumbai's coastal road. "This is Maharashtra's first SMP. Developed countries like Singapore and Australia have SMPs and consider them as reference points in coastal ...
