MUMBAI: In sleepy hamlets, fishing villages and traditional gaothans in Bhayander and Vasai-Virar on the outskirts of Mumbai, a wave of resentment is spreading among local residents.
The trigger for the resentment is the draft regional plan issued by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), which envisages urbanisation in no-development zones, hazardous industries in green zone belts and multi-storey buildings around traditional gaothan villages. The total investment is a whopping Rs 1.14 lakh crore for road, rail and infrastructure projects over the next two decades.
With barely three weeks remaining for submitting
their objections and suggestions to the authority, locals said the draft plan will have “serious’’ repercussions on their region, which provides flowers, fruits and vegetables to Mumbai.
The MMR region extends over an area of 4,311 sq km and covers entire Mumbai and parts of Thane, Palghar and Raigad districts. Areas include Vasai-Virar, Karjat, Khopoli, Ulhasnagar, Kulgaon-Badlapur, Uran and Navi Mumbai, with a population of around 22 million.
The draft plan (2016-2036) was published by MMRDA last September, but most residents remained clueless about it until now.
Since last month, over a dozen protest rallies have been held organized by local civic groups. Last week, around 3,000 residents gathered for a meeting held in the vast complex of a 400-year-old Portuguese church in Uttan, Bhayander.
Samir Vartak, a former zilla parishad member, said 13,000 objection forms were distributed to villagers in the last one month. “The locals are still not aware about the proposed development,’’ he said.
Tony Dabre, ex-sarpanch of Vagholi village, said, “People are angry. The government is trying to impose a plan the locals don’t want.’’ Environmental activist from Vasai, Father Francis D’Britto recently formed an environment protection committee to counter the new plan.
According to the draft plan, industrial development will be allowed on land parcels of 10 hectares (25 acres) or above in green zone I. Moreover, buildings 15 metres tall (about three to four floors) will be allowed in such zones.
A buffer zone of just 30 metres has been proposed from the edge of forest zones and water bodies.
Buildings with “low heights’’ will be permitted in the Matheran foothills area, which has been earmarked as an “institutional zone’’.
“The Matheran hills are encircled with the proposed multi-modal corridor connecting Virar to Alibag and the Central Railway line. In order to maintain a buffer between the hills and the encircling transport network, institutional zone is proposed with low-rise development and large-scale developments which will not require further road networks,’’ said the report.
In gaothans which have bungalows and one-storeyed houses in narrow lanes, the MMRDA has proposed a height of 24m (about seven floors) as part of its Gaothan Expansion Scheme. Such structures will be permitted 200m from the boundary of the gaothans. Four growth centres have been identified across the region to create employment opportunities in the tertiary sector. These are pockets of 5 to 13 sq km each in Vasai, Bhiwandi, Kalyan and Panvel tehsils.
In all, the new plan has earmarked an area of 1070.08 sq km as “urbanisable zone’’.
“To attract industrial development, industries are proposed to be freely permitted in the Urbanisable Zone and Green Zone. Seven pockets of land are identified in Virar, Bhiwandi, Taloja, Khalapur, on both sides of Amba River, and Khopta for industrial development. These pockets total an area of 78.06 sq km,’’ said the draft report.

Looks like an environmentally sensitive issue.
It is seen that the authorities many times turn blind eye to the environmental degradation due to a developmental projects like new factory/residential/commercial/road/railwayline.
On the other hand there are many organisations (often with vsted interests) alway oppose any development tooth and nail and at the same time want aid/help from govt.
Country needs development
for the well being & prosperity of citizens. A Right balance have to be struck so that the development happens either without any environment damage or with a provision to nullify the suspected environmental degradation through mitigative measures like growing trees in lieu of uprooted ones.

Youth jumps to death from train after stabbing lover
Pradeep Gupta TNN
Ulhasnagar: A 24-four-year old youth from Ulhasnagar committed suicide by jumping off a train on Friday after trying to kill a 34-year-old woman with whom he was in a relationship. Stabbed in the throat, the woman has been admitted to the ICU at Fortis Hospital in Kalyan.
In the afternoon, Deepak Pawar from Ganpat Nagar visited Rashmi (name changed) at her home in Ashalegaon where she has been living alone for four years, following her separation from her husband. Pawar had a fight with Rashmi and he stabbed Rashmi in the neck with a knife, said the police. Blood stains suggested he also dashed her head against the wall. Pawar then fled and subsequently, the neighbours took Rashmi to hospital.
Around 10pm that night, Pawar jumped of a local between Dombivli and Kopar.
“The reason behind the attack is yet to be known. The woman is separated from her husband and Pawar was in a relationship with her,” said Avinash Mokashi, senior inspector at the Vithalwadi police station. The police added that the youth worked for the catering business run by the woman’s father.

23-year-old Barkha Menghani says every commuter who is harassed on local trains should stand up and bring the bullies to book.
Bullying in local trains, something most people tend to ignore or shrug off, has come into focus with a gutsy executive getting seven women booked for harassment on Tuesday.
Barkha Menghani, 23, who was being harassed almost every day for close to a month by a bunch of women on the 8.10 am local from Ambernath to CST, put her foot down despite an initial tepid response from authorities. Menghani, who works
in BKC, takes a train from Ulhasnagar to Ambernath and from there another train to Kurla.On Monday, one of the women from the gang sat on her lap, after which the others started taunting her and clicking photos on their mobile phones. Menghani first tried calling the Government Railway Police's helpline number. Though there was no response, she eventually managed to reach Alok Bohra, the Senior Divisional Security Commissioner of the Railway Protection Force.Bohra then arranged for RPF lady constables in civilian clothes to accompany Menghani the next day. When the women started abusing and harassing the constables also, taking them for civilian commuters, the RPF women took them off the train at Ambernath and booked them for creating nuisance and preventing a passenger from boarding a train. The magistrate fined the women Rs 1,000 each and made them to sit in the court till 6 pm.Menghani now hopes other women follow her lead and stand up to bullying on trains. "I would advice every woman who faces this problem to raise their voice and lodge formal complaints," said Menghani. "It might take time and even mean being late for work, but it will teach a lesson to those who trouble others for no reason. They will not dare do it again."To prove her point, Menghani, who had to go to the court to testify against the bullies, said her bosses were very supportive of her and even encouraged her to take the day off. Menghani said she is not afraid to face the women the next time. "I am not afraid of them. I will stick to my routine. Ihave also filed a complaint with the GRP to prevent any future harassment," she said.
Local mafia
Bullies on local trains are usually a close group of people who know each other. They largely fall under three groups: Those who 'reserve' seats for their friends, those who form a group and play games, and those who crowd the entrances and prevent passengers from either boarding or getting off.Mengani's bullies were of the first kind. The gang first gave her a verbal warning to avoid the middle women's coach. When she refused to comply, she was subjected to abuse, first verbal and then physical. As she persisted, the abuse became a daily ritual."I ignored them," said Menghani. "But when the woman sat on my lap, something snapped inside me."
During rush hour, gangs crowd the footboards and block people from entering. Groups on Churchgate-bound trains from Virar do not let commuters from Borivali station board the train. The situation is similar at Badlapur, Ambernath, Ulhasnagar and Kalyan stations. Then there are groups that form a circle and play cards, not allowing commuters to stand comfortably.
Lauding Menghani's action, Bohra told Mirror: "If we get any such complaints we will immediately send our staff to check. If it is true, we will take action against the troublemakers. Any commuter can lodge a complaint on the RPF or GRP helplines."
