High tide expected in Mumbai at noon, likely to aggravate waterlogging woes 3.7.2019
Mumbai: A high tide of about 4.69 meters is expected to flush gallons of water in Mumbai at noon, increasing the waterlogging problem caused by heavy rainfall in the financial capital. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has also predicted a low tide of about 1.58 meter at 6:34 in the evening on Wednesday. Drains and small tributaries usually flow into the sea. The weather experts believe that high tide with so much intensity when hits the area, the flow of these tributaries and rivers are blocked. This leads to blocking of water which further causes a flood like situation. Also, tides are a common phenomenon in Mumbai and occur twice a day. After reeling under the scorching heat for a couple of months, monsoon has finally arrived in Madhya Pradesh but it will take a few days more to reach Gwalior and Chambal. The IMD has issued a heavy rainfall warning for areas such as Indore, Bhopal and Jabalpur. "Monsoon is yet to reach Chambal and Gwalior. Rest all other areas of Madhya Pradesh have been ...

Chennai: Six die inhaling poisonous gas in Sriperumbudur septic tank tragedy 27.3.2019
Chennai: At least six men, including three from the same family and a Good Samaritan who rushed to their help, died inhaling poisonous gas from a septic tank in a house at Sriperumbudur near Chennai on Tuesday, sending shock waves across the state.   Police gave the names of the deceased as Krishnamoorthy, the house owner, his two sons Kannan, 28, and Karthik, 25, two of the landlord's tenants, Suradhabhai, 28 and Paramasivam, 32, besides a 22-year-old youth, Lakshmikanthan who was delivering gas cylinders in that locality. All fell like ninepins, one after another, in a serial tragedy hardly witnessed in recent days, to the noxious gas emanating from the tank, starting with the family head Krishnamoorthy who first got inside to apparently round off the cleaning to perfection after a sewage tanker had initially emptied the septic tank in his house. While the family lived on one of the floors, Krishnamoorthy had let the other portions in the building to other families for rent. Since this part of ...

Utilise textile mills land for small biz, Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry tells AMC 7.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Making suggestions on upgrading various infrastructure in the city, the Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) said land lying unused in old textile mills should be turned to mini industrial estates for small businesses. A team of experts has spoken to city Mayor Bijal Patel during his visit to GCCI. "Of about 76 mills that used to operate in the city, 70 are closed and their land is lying unutilised. The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) should revive these spaces into vibrant industrial zones by converting them into mini industrial estates," GCCI president Jaimin Vasa told DNA. Vasa these spaces should have multistorey industrial estates in order to reduce the capital cost of investors so that even small-scale entrepreneurs can afford them, or else the cost of land would exceed other costs, making the project unviable. GCCI also asked the AMC to improve the road, water supply, and sewage infrastructure in industrial estates of Naroda, Vatva, Odhav, Narol, and Kathwada. "In some areas, even ...
