MUMBAI: The seven-member panel, set up by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis to suggest alternative sites to Aarey Colony as a location for a car shed for Metro-III, is likely to give the government several options.
The substitute locations may include places in the island city as well as a couple of other spots in Aarey Colony itself. The panel may also suggest reclamation from the sea if none of the other options works out.
Fadnavis set up the panel in March after citizens protested against a proposal to construct the facility inside Aarey Colony. The panel is likely to submit its report to the CM next week after which a high-powered committee headed by chief secretary Swadhin Kshatriya will take the final call. The alternatives locations include Bandra-Kurla Complex, Kanjurmarg,

Mumbai Port Trust land in Wadala and Mumbai University's Kalina campus. "It may also include a couple of other spots within Aarey Colony. We have identified a couple of areas that may entail less damage to vegetation," said a member of the panel.
Reports of the other possible options, too, have run into opposition. Backbay residents, for instance, said they would fight the move "tooth and nail". "Anyway, they are using green areas in Cuffe Parade (Colaba woods) for construction purposes. A car shed, too, ending up in our backyard will destroy the area," said Manjeet Kriplani, a Cuffe Parade Resident. 'Save Aarey' campaigners said they are opposed to construction in any part of the green patch. "We don't want any part of the green zone to be used for any development," a member said. Another alternative is reclaiming land from the sea. However, experts say the option is time-consuming and cumbersome as it will need several approvals from the environmental authorities, including the Union ministry of environment and forests. "Nothing has been finalized yet but we plan to submit our report to the CM during the next week," said urban development secretary Nitin Kareer.

Move out of your houses and stay elsewhere for a week; we will pay you!" This is the latest directive from Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) to Chickpet residents and traders in some of the buildings as it prepares for an evacuation drive in the area where underground tunnelling for the metro rail has intensified in the Phase I project of Namma Metro.
Over 100 residents and commercial establishments in Chickpet have been identified for evacuation. People living in the building, working or tenants will be evacuated for a period of one week. At present, the tunnel boring machine (TBM) Kaveri is proceeding underground towards Majestic from Chickpet. As per the plan, as the TBM approaches 30-metre radius of the identified buildings, the people will have to be evacuated for a period of one week. An official of the BMRCL

said that the contract of the project includes paying Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 per day to the owner of the building depending on whether it is a residential or commercial establishment. Speaking to Bangalore Mirror chief PRO of the BMRCL Vasanth Rao said, "The contractor of the project has identified buildings in the stretch between Chickpet and Majestic. The stretch between the areas which have the highest number of buildings needs to be evacuated. The contractor has already identified the buildings and evacuations will be done when the TBM approaches the buildings." It is a known fact that Chickpet area is among the oldest areas in the city, and is heavily congested. Rao said the buildings will be identified on the basis of various parameters like age of the building, present condition, and material used for the construction and such other issues. It is said that the contractor would be paying Rs 1 crore to Rs 1.5 crore for compensating people while evacuating them during the tunnelling work. BMRCL had categorised buildings as A, B, C and D with 'A' category buildings being old, dilapidated and unsafe for occupation when TBMs burrow 60 feet below these structures. The official said the notices have already been served to occupants and owners of the identified buildings. On Sunday, tension had prevailed in the KR Market area on Venkatachalaiah Lane after a portion of land had caved in. The residents attributed this to the TBM burrowing 60 feet under the caved-in portion. Following the incident, the BMRCL had instructed some of the occupants in the buildings and lodges to vacate. The merchants alleged that the contractor of the project had failed to evacuate the people.
At present, two machines have been put to the task. TBM Kaveri has already achieved a breakthrough at the Chickpet metro station and is proceeding towards Majestic. However, another TBM Krishna is yet to reach Chickpet metro after it started work from Victoria Hospital Metro station. It is estimated that the TBM will take a few months to start from the Chickpet Station towards Majestic. As BMRCL is running against time to meet the deadline it is crucial for both the machines to achieve breakthrough. On other hand, the tunnelling work from Sampige Road to Majestic too is facing various hurdles. The contractor decided to change the rock cutter of TBM Godavari - which is working there - after it broke down while tunnelling last year.

Rail services were hit as thousands of Gujjars continued to sit on the railway tracks in Rajasthan's Bharatpur district for the second day on Friday demanding five percent reservation in government jobs and educational institutions. Road traffic was also affected.
The sit-in at Pilu Ka Pura area in Bharatpur district affected the movement of at least 50 trains, including those on the Delhi-Mumbai section. The state roadways also cancelled some buses on the route where the Gujjars were holding their protest.
"The state government has sent us a letter for holding talks with a cabinet committee. Our leaders will decide on the future course of action after talking to the protesters," Himmat Singh, spokesperson of the Gujjar Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti, told IANS on the phone.

Gujjars in Rajasthan are demanding the reservation under SBC (special backward class) category.
"We want five percent reservation under the SBC category and that should be within the upper limit of 50 percent reservation," Singh said.
Gujjars had staged violent protests between 2006 and 2008 to demand reservations, in which at least 67 people lost their lives and hundreds of others were injured. "We are open for talks with anyone.... I strongly feel that talks can resolve all issues," Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria told reporters here.
"The matter is before the court and I can assure them that the state government will do its best to resolve the issue at the earliest," said Kataria.

BONGAIGAON/GUWAHATI, May 23 – Nineteen people were injured when the 55753 Alipurduar-Guwahati Sifung Passenger train derailed at Champapara between Salakati in Kokrajhar district and Basugaon in Chirang district, around 5.10 am today. Among the injured were two drivers of the train.
The train, which had 14 coaches including two goods bogies, had left Alipurduar Junction in North Bengal at 2.45 am. When it reached Champapara – 15 km from Kokrajhar Station – it hit a tree that was lying on the railway track. After ripping the tree apart, the engine rammed into the railings of the nearby Champamati bridge and plunged into the river.
The loco driver Manik Ghose (49) and his assistant Jitendra Kumar (32), however, jumped out of the cabin of the engine and in the process, received injuries to
