Is NMSEZ project a big flop?
By Dinesh Kamath
NAVI MUMBAI: Between the years 2000
and 2004, City and Industrial Development
Corporation had come
up with the idea of
forming a Special Economic Zone within
Navi Mumbai. This
was called Navi Mumbai SEZ.
Navi Mumbai SEZ
Private Limited had
been appointed as the
Special Planning Authority (SPA) under the
Maharashtra Regional
& Town Planning Act,
1966, for the notified
areas in Dronagiri,
Kalamboli, Ulwe (Airport) and Ulwe (Waterfront) Nodes of Navi
As a Special Planning Authority, NMSEZ had the roles and
responsibilities to (i)
Formulate Development Control Regulations and Norms; (ii)
Control and monitor
development / Implementation and enforcement of the Master
Plan; (iii) Grant /

premises; and (v) such
other roles and responsibilities as enumerated in the Maharashtra
Regional and Town
Planning Act, 1966.
Lakhina and General
Thakar who had hit
upon this idea of forming SEZ and CIDCO’s
stake was around 26%.
Tenders regarding
this scheme were called
in 2002/03 and letter of
indent was issued in
February 2004. It was
decided that 1900 hectares of land would be
given for constructing
of SEZ. However, ulti-
mately 1842 hectare of
plot was granted. Agencies like Videocon representing the company

Sena outwits NCP
Inaugurates the vegetable
market a day before the
Mayor was to do so
By Vijay Bhor
CBD-Belapur: The
one-up-man-ship between NCP and Shiv
Sena, the two main contenders for power in the
city, continues taking
bizarre forms at time.
This time, it was Shiv
Sena which had its way.
NMMC has built a
vegetable market in
Sector-18 Nerul, which
falls in the Ward represented by Satish Ramane of Shiv Sena. “I
had pursued the authorities for almost
three years to get the
market built,” says Ra-
Duo selling fake visas lands in police net
By Vikram Gaikwad
men selling fake visas
to unwary citizens have
been rounded up by the
crime branch of city
The accused Aslam
Arshad Khan (44) and
Venugopal Damodaran
Nair (45), were operating as passport agents.
Naturally, they were
coming in contact with
people going abroad.
Whenever someone was
not able to get his or her
visa in time, they were
also offering to help him
out. Their fame had
spread and one of the
men who sought their
help was a youth from
mane. When the market, named after
Maasaheb Meenatai
Thackeray, was ready,
the administration as is
its wont made arrangements to get it inaugurated by Mayor Sagar
Naik. Before the programme could be announced, Shiv Sainiks
got a scent of it. They
rushed forward and got
it inaugurated by their
Shahar Pramukh K N
Mhatre on Thursday.
Whether the Mayor
will still perform the
‘official inauguration’
remains to be seen.
NMMC teachers
score a naught
Not a teacher gets through in the
TET conducted by the state
By Vikram Gaikwad
CBD-BELAPUR: NMMC’s education department, which is used to
boasting about the high
quality of education it
is offering, must be
feeling crestfallen. Not
a single civic teacher
has passed the Teacher Eligibility Test conducted by the government to assess the
quality of teachers in
the state.
Teacher Eligibility
Test has been designed
to assess the quality of
teachers on its pay roll.
It is common for teachers from municipal, ZP,
aided and unaided
schools. And this time,
NMMC has sent about
150 of its teachers to
appear for it.
It has turned out
that not a single teacher from NMMC’s
ranks has passed the
test. That is a bad
record for the department which claims
credit every time some
student comes out
with high scores. The
success if any should
be ascribed to the hard
work of the students
rather than the good
quality of teachers, say
Mazgaon. They agreed
to provide a visa to Kuwait and the youth had
paid Rs 60,000 for their
service. When he examined the visa, however,
he learnt that it is a
fake one. Aggrieved, he
lodged a complaint with
Navi Mumbai police.
Accordingly, the
crime branch started
investigation. Learning
through their informers that the duo is expected to visit Koperkhairane on Monday, the crime branch
team led by API Prithviraj Ghorpade and PSI
Bharat Jadhav lay in
wait. As the duo arrived, they were round-
ed up. A search of their
persons showed that
they were carrying seven fake visas for Kuwait and a few pass
ports. All those who
have been cheated by
them are requested to
contact the police.
Police are trying to
find out where the two
were getting their visas
done and which other
clients they have sold
them. They are also trying to find out which
other countries they
had prepared visas for.
466 industrial units closed
By a staff reporter
CBD-Belapur: “Navi Mumbai had 240 industrial units closed in 2008. The figure has risen to
466 in 2015,” said industry minister Subhash
Desai the other day. He was replying to question
raised by MLA Sandeep Naik in the legislative
assembly. “Lack of demand for the products, shortage of working capital, power shortage, non availability of raw materials and increasing competition in the market place are some of the reasons
for the closure,” he explained.
Chappie (stylized as CHAPPiE) is an American
science fiction film directed by Neill Blomkamp.
The screenplay, written by Blomkamp and Terri
Tatchell, is based on Blomkamp’s 2004 short film
Tetra Vaal. The film stars Sharlto Copley, Dev
Patel, Jose Pablo
Cantillo, Sigourney
Jackman, and Watkin
Tudor Jones and
Yolandi Visser of the
South African hip-hop
group Die Antwoord.
In the near future,
crime is patrolled by an
o p p r e s s i v e
mechanized police
force. But now, the
people are fighting
back. When one police
droid, Chappie, is
stolen and given new programming, he becomes
the first robot with the ability to think and feel for
himself. As powerful, destructive forces start to
see Chappie as a danger to mankind and order,
they will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo
and ensure that Chappie is the last of his kind.

American romantic
dark comedy film

by Glenn Ficarra and

Nicky (Will Smith)
is a seasoned master
of misdirection who
becomes romantically
involved with novice
con artist Jess (Margot Robbie). As he’s teaching
her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for
comfort and he abruptly breaks it off. Three years
later, the former flame—now an accomplished
femme fatale—shows up in Buenos Aires in the
middle of the high stakes racecar circuit. In the
midst of Nicky’s latest, very dangerous scheme,
she throws his plans for a loop…and the
consummate con man off his game.

professionals living in Gurgaon. When Meera walks
out of a party late one night, she is attacked by a
group of unknown men. Although she escapes by
the skin of her teeth, the encounter leaves her
traumatized. Arjun, partly blaming himself for not
being there that night, tries to make up for it by
treating her to a luxurious desert holiday. As they
stop on a Highway dhaba for dinner, they witness
a young girl being picked up by a bunch of
hoodlums. Arjun chooses to step in, unmindful of
the danger ahead.

Bhoomika in the campus. After a few playful
encounters, they fall in love. Ashwin hails from a
lower middle class family and all the time he thinks
of making big money in a very short time. When
Bhoomika stumbles upon something big, she
consults Ashwin and his friends and together they
strike it rich in a very big way using an invisible
chemical (A chemical when it is sprayed on anything
or anyone the object or the person becomes

run after being chased by the cops. Now starts the
wild goose chase with ruthless & buffoonery
gangsters, comic cops, bungling CBI officer and

Karnataka Defend Ranji Title With Ease

MUMBAI: Defending
champions Karnataka
registered a comprehensive innings and
217-run win over their
neighbours Tamil
Nadu in the Ranji Trophy 2014-15 final at the
Wankhede Stadium,
Mumbai on Thursday.
In the process they became the only team besides Mumbai to retain
the trophy more than
once. Karnataka had
earlier won the trophy
consecutively in 199798 (under Rahul Dravid) and 1998-99 (under
Sunil Joshi).
Karnataka maintained their unbeaten
track record into the final, as they sent the
Tamil Nadu fielders on
a leather hunt for nearly four days of the five
day summit match by
scoring 762 runs in the
first innings, after
bowling them out for
134 on day 1. Their innings was powered by
23 year old Karun
Nair’s record-breaking

by Lokesh Rahul’s 188

together since they
were under-13. Karnataka captain, Vinay

haul in the first innings and followed it up
with a century (his sec-

Tamil Nadu (were 628 runs ajar) for

day after tea to seal the title despite
contrasting centuries by Vijay Shankar (103) and Dinesh Karthik (120)

Vinay Kumar who
guided Karnataka to
their second Ranji trophy title in a row (eight
since their maiden
one in 1973-74) with an
all-round performance
in the post match press
conference said “The
first day and the first
innings were crucial in
deciding the outcome of
the game. I won’t say
it was easy. In the first
innings we bowled really well and that’s the
reason we have got this
result. Had they got
around 300-350 runs it
would have been difficult. They are a good
side. They bowled really well but we tackled
them well as a batting
unit. We were taking it
one game at a time and
not thinking much
about retaining the trophy. Our goal was just
to try and win every
game that made our
goal (journey) easier
and this is the result.”
About his own performance he further added “For me, the team
comes first. I wanted to
win the Ranji Trophy
and my performance
also contributed to it for
which I am happy. I
am also working hard
to come back into the
Indian team and every

Star Performers In 26th NMSA Inter
Office Cricket Tournament
There is nothing wrong with the documentary
Indians are busy debating whether the government’s action in getting a court order restraining the telecast of the documentary, India’s
Daughter, by the British film-maker Leslee Udwin, is right or wrong.
The work has been banned from public viewing for the sole reason that
it contains some repugnant comments by the convict, blaming the victim for the rape and murder. The convict said that she could have survived had she not resisted rape.
In this documentary, the criminals do accept that they did crime,
still our government needs time to decide the fate of this case. This
documentary should be broadcast to make people realise the true perspectives and educate them to decide for themselves.
Get to the basics and make serious attempts in getting society’s
attitude towards young women. The government should send an Indian
delegation to the Western countries to find out how Western males and
females look at each other and accordingly bring about changes in the
way Indian men and women look at each other.
Leslee Udwin is not a typical film director or a popular cinema producer but from journalism stream of BBC. She had managed to obtain
‘No objection certification’ letter from Home Ministry and the permission from the Jail authorities.
The ban is amateurish and immature. In fact, such remarks and
reviews should be brought to light to make the society realise what
mindset we Indians are living with. Instead of debating on how to make
the streets safe for women and how to empower them, we are debating
on banning the film.
Leslee Udwin did something which no Indian male or female journalist could do. She went and interviewed the convict. Only when one
interviews the culprit you get to see that evil which actually resides in
these people. These evils deserve to be eradicated. The documentary all
the more justifies the death sentence given to them. The mind set has
to change. The government is fighting hard for its country’s embarrassment then for its very own women. Truth is bitter and the country has
to face it. If really female dignity was important why is justice being
delayed? It’s been more than a year and the culprits are still alive.
Udwin has attempted to highlight how the nation sweep down women’s issues and problems perpetrated by the misogynists under the carpet, how the people in power ‘frame charges and fix responsibilities’
and kill freedom of speech. It is a well made film and extremely sensitive to the issue. The parents of Jyoti Singh were involved in the film
and the film does bring out their pain and their anguish at the delay in
the administration of justice. The parents despite their disadvantages
have come across as extremely dignified and unrevengeful. They just
want justice. More to the point is what one of the perpetrators’ lawyers
said. He said that plenty of those sitting in Parliament are guilty of
similar crimes. But they will not be tried. Perhaps that hurts. Hence the
The film doesn’t defame India. Yes, the Indian justice system would
be offended, when it is pointed out it is sitting on a fast track case for
this long.
It is abundantly clear from the documentary that those who commit
such heinous crimes are not the ones who do any soul searching before
or after the crime. This documentary is about as likely to prevent rape
as a 9-11 documentary is at preventing future terror attacks.
People who want to see positive changes happening in Indian society
should not be swayed by emotions. Every right thinking person would
agree that Leslee Udwin’s intention behind doing the documentary is
not to malign our nation’s image but instead to make the world come
together for gender equality. the documentary has to be viewed by the
people of the country not with the sense what the convict has to say but
with a wider perspective, the various challenges that the Indian societies are victim of.
There are some hysterical feminists, who have an anti-male ideology, and want to shame Indian males through bad-mouthing one unfortunate incident. Why the government wants to ban the film? The documentarian is doing quite a bit in starting a dialogue and educating the
society by very thought provoking portrayal of all the forces at work
here - human emotions, dreams, poverty, power. Let the society debate
what is right and wrong. Then law enforcement and legal departments
will have much less work. The documentary should be seen as holding a
mirror unto the society.

when he will receive the

The NMMC Commissioner has already rejected the complaint and
had cancelled the same.
However, he has not received the clearance certificate.
In his reply, the
NMMC says that illegal

be in Bindu Madhav
Nagar, Digha. The notice against the illegal
construction was issued
on 12 February 2009. He
questioned that if the il-

then why such a notice
has been issued against
his name. He has asked
to cancel the notice on 1

The aims of the
zones included: increased trade, increased investment, job
creation and effective
administration. To encourage businesses to
set up in the zone, financially libertarian
policies are introduced.
It was motivated by the
desire to attract foreign

company gains by being in a Special Economic Zone may mean
it can produce and
trade goods at a globally competitive price
thereby generating
greater economic activity and employment
through their establishment.

as: Generation of additional economic activity; Promotion of exports

Promotion of investment from domestic

skit with a strong social
message on the burning
issue of female foeticide.
Spreading the awareness among the visitors,

ratio in the country and
it must be stopped. We
appreciate the efforts of
