Wet garbage woe plagues Thane residents 18.6.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Though the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has extended its deadline by a month for bigger housing societies in Thane to manage their own garbage, the societies want the civic body to manage its wet waste. They say that they can manage dry waste but do not have the wherewithal to set up expensive bio compost machinery. On June 17 over 35 big housing societies from Thane had a meeting to discuss ways and means to manage their own waste. This was after the TMC on June 15 gave them one more month to adopt the waste management system. "After a lot of discussions we zeroed in on the idea to segregate the wet and dry waste of our societies," says Siva Kumar Vunnava from Bramhand phase VI, Ghodbunder road. "We will manage dry waste, but TMC should take care of the wet waste. Putting up a wet waste plant requires around Rs 10 to Rs 12 lakh," he adds. The residents also demand that TMC should put up a waste processing plant on vacant plots in the city since there's no dumping ground. "They have given a waste ...

Delhi: Sangam Vihar residents face water shortage, roads flooded with sewer water 17.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
Amid the ongoing water crisis in the capital, South Delhi's Sangham Vihar faces severe water shortage. On top of that, infrastructural failures have resulted in roads being flooded with sewer water. But now the people of the area are terrified. The brother of a Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) municipal councilor was shot dead after a fight broke out between him and his neighbour over a water pipe laid by him. Fights and quarrels over water is common here, due to severe water shortage in many sub-districts of Sangham Vihar. Government-issued water tankers come infrequently, which results in quarrels between residents to get adequate amount of water for their family. This has prompted people to use their personal funds to lay down pipes to get water from neighbouring areas such as Sonia Vihar, without government authorisation. Yet, most people do not get water. Vijay, a 32-year-old local shop-owner, says that he gets water every two weeks, but even then the quality makes it unsuitable for drinking. He lives in ...
