Army stations to get 'smart' makeover? 14.10.2017 DNA: Top News
The Army wants to modernise its military stations along the lines of a 'smart city' that encompasses better roads, parking facilities, waste disposal, underground electricity cables.

State's initiatives to maintain ODF status 13.10.2017 DNA: India
The 'Open Defecation Free Urban Maharashtra' status encompasses 384 cities, 27 municipal corporations, 229 municipal councils and 128 nagar panchayats. To achieve this, the state government says it has adopted a model of creating 'ODF Communities' by encouraging a beneficiary-led demand-driven approach towards the construction of toilets, enabling a financial and administrative framework for urban local bodies (ULBs) and linking it to incentives and disincentives. The state government developed the 'ODF City' concept in June 2015 wherein no person is found defecating in the open at any time of the day. Every person thus has access to safe sanitation facilities. The three-tiered mechanism consists of city, district and state-level validation which every city has to follow.

Open Defecation Free: Deserving tag or hollow claim? 13.10.2017 DNA: Money
While urban Maharashtra was declared Open Defecation Free (ODF) on October 2, and Mumbai bagged the title in 2016, residents and corporators have called it into question, considering the fact that the tag is in contrast to the ground reality, with open defecation persisting in the city. From Mankhurd in the eastern suburbs to Andheri in the western parts of Mumbai — people are still seen defecating in the open. Meher Moshin Haider, a Congress corporator from Andheri (West), had written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking an inquiry into the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) claim of Mumbai achieving the ODF status. Haider alleged that the evaluation carried out by the Quality Council of India (QCI), a government regulator, was faulty. She said that there is a scarcity of toilet sheets in her ward and slum dwellers still go outside to attend to nature's call. The QCI replied to Haider stating that the ODF certification stood only for six months and required re-evaluation thereafter. ...
