DJB fails to replace faulty meters; residents pay the price

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, August 12
The Delhi Jal Board (DJB) is giving a tough time to people as they are allegedly forced to pay exorbitant bills. The board has reportedly not been able to replace faulty meters in the city even after the extension of deadline numerous times. The Capital has 5 lakh defective meters.

Umesh Bihari Lal, a senior citizen and resident of Kailash Colony who has been paying his bills regularly, was shocked to see his latest bill of around Rs 24,000-- a collective bill of the last one year. Not only this, his bother who stays on the first floor of the house has received a bill of around Rs 26,000.

"The DJB officials used to come every month to take the meter reading and charged us somewhere between Rs 200 and Rs 300, saying that it was an ad hoc bill. Now, they are suddenly demanding Rs 24,000 as bill for one year," said Lal.

Lal alleged that he had been running from pillar to post in DJB offices to get the amount settled, but the callousness of the officials have not provided any solution. "I met the chief engineer, who referred me to the zonal revenue officer. Even the zonal revenue officer did not suggest anything and said that the bill had to be cleared," said Lal.

However, DJB officials tried to shift the responsibility, saying that water rates have been increased and it might lead to higher bills. "Sometimes, if the meter reading is not visible, the officials take minimum payment by giving ad hoc bills. But it does not mean that the bill is cleared for the month," said Kushal Singh, zonal revenue officer in DJB.

The DJB had again extended the deadline for consumers to replace defective meters. This is the third time that water utility moved the deadline from December 31, 2009, to June 30, 2010. It has now been set for September 30.

"Tenders are being finalised. It might take another three months to award contracts," a senior official said.

ĎKite flying can cause electrocutioní
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, August 12
The city's power distribution companies have warned residents that celebrating the Independence Day by flying kites near electric distribution and transmission installations can cause electrocution.

The discoms have said 'manjha' (the metal-coated thread used in kite flying) being a good conductor of electricity is dangerous not only to the person flying the kite, but also poses risk to electricity supply of an area. Each year, there are several instances on both counts.

"When manjha comes in contact with a live overhead wire, it causes tripping, leading to blackout in an area- a phenomenon witnessed every year," said a senior BSES official.

"According to estimates, tripping of just one 33/66 KV overhead line can disrupt power supply to over 10,000 residents, while that of a single 11 KV line to over 2,500 residents. Each year, there are scores of such incidents in the city. Last year, there were 44 instances due to kite flying in the BSES' (BRPL 32, BYPL 12) area," said the official.

In the run-up to the Independence Day, the BSES has put its operations and maintenance team on high alert to take care of any kite flying-related contingencies.

"People should celebrate the Independence Day. But they should do it responsibly. Residents are advised not to fly kites near electricity installations, including overhead cables and certainly not use metal or metal-coated manjhas. These two simple measures will ensure safe I-Day celebrations. Any carelessness can lead to a major power failure, blackout and even electrocution," added the official.

Uphaar Case
CBIís clean chit to Kanth rejected

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, August 12
A Delhi court today rejected the CBI's report giving a clean chit to former IPS officer Amod Kanth accused in Uphaar fire tragedy case, saying that there was prima facie evidence to prosecute Kanth under the Cinematograph Act.

Metropolitan magistrate Sanjeev Kumar said declining CBI's report, which stated that there was no witness to prove that it was Kanth who had allowed the extra seats in the theatre, ordered the investigating agency to issue summons against Kanth.

"The investigation report of the CBI is hereby rejected. Let the summons be issued against Amod Kanth for August 20," Kumar said.

It added that there was sufficient evidence to initiate criminal proceedings against Kanth under section 304A, 337 and 338 of the IPC.

On August 9, the court had reserved its order on a plea filed by the Association of Victims of Uphaar Tragedy (AVUT), seeking rejection of the CBI report absolving the former IPS officer in the case.

The AVUT had alleged that Kanth, the then DCP (licensing), had allowed extra seats in Uphaar cinema hall's balcony where 59 people died in a blaze in 1997 due to the closure of exit gates.

Kanth's role came under the scanner when a trial court, while awarding jail to 12 accused, including theatre owners Sushil and Gopal Ansal, asked the CBI to probe the IPS officer's act of allowing extra seats.

The probe agency, in its report, gave clean chit to Kanth saying the decision to allow the theatre owners to retain the extra seats in the balcony was based on the technical advice rendered to him by the technical staff.

The court relied on the statement of the victims' body which stated that Kanth was aware that the decision could prove fatal.

New Delhi, August 12
For the second time in the month, construction workers employed at the Miranda House Commonwealth Games site sat on a dharma outside the college. The workers, students and teachers, under the banner of the Delhi Nirman Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti, were protesting against the non-payment of wages.

The workers were supported by many Delhi University students, members of the Miranda House Staff Association, women's and youth organizations like Centre for Struggling Women (CSW) and Krantikari Yuva Sangathan (KYS). They were also protesting against several other violations of labour laws.

"The workers have not been paid for the entire one month and four days for which they have been working at the college. Furthermore, the rate of payment fixed by the contractor is well below the legal minimum wage rate. Unfortunately, despite the fact that the contractor has defaulted on paying the workers and violated several labour laws, the main employer, i.e. the college principal, Ms Pratibha Jolly has refused to step in and release the workers' arrears," said a member of the Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti.

"Since August 4, only a small part of the workers' dues has been released with no further surety provided by the college administration to look into the other key demands of the workers," he said.

Missing manís family receives Rs 30-lakh ransom letter
Our Correspondent

Greater Noida, August 12
The family members of an automobile company's supervisor, who went missing nearly 12 days ago, has allegedly received a ransom letter demanding Rs 30 lakh. The Dadri police registered a kidnapping report today.

"Sukhpal Singh of Meerut today gave a written complaint, stating that his son Mukesh Kumar (25) who works in automobile company had been missing since July 30. He had lodged a missing report. He said a day before the family had received a ransom letter of Rs 30 lakh from kidnappers. If the amount was not paid, they would kill his son," said Pramod Kumar Singh, SHO, Dadri.

"A kidnapping case has been registered against unknown persons today. The kidnappers have asked the family members to arrange for the ransom by August 13. The kidnappers had asked them to come on a train. They have asked them to throw the cash bag when they receive torchlight," said Singh.

"Mukeh's family members were waiting for further directions from the kidnappers. Instead of using mobile phone, they have used letter so that they cannot be traced through electronic surveillance," said Singh.

"Mukesh lived in rented accommodation in Dadri Kasba. The ransom letter was found in the room. Someone had slipped the letter through the door," said Singh.

"We are questioning his friends and residents of the area to get clues about the kidnappers. Policemen in plain clothes have been deployed to nab the person associated with the kidnapper(s) as he delivers the letter. We expect the letter at his Meerut house now," said Singh.

"We informed about the letter to the police on August 6, but they were not registering the kidnapping case and took the matter lightly. It was only after they were pressurised by influential people and the media, a kidnapping case was registered," said a relative of the victim.

Tribune News Service

Faridabad, August 12
The police has failed to nab the criminals who yesterday brutally attacked an executive engineer of the Municipal Corporation of Faridabad, D.R.Bhaskar. The police claimed last evening that it had identified the motorcycle used by the criminals and was close to apprehending them.

However, the police authorities today said that they had followed a wrong lead even though they claimed to have conducted raids at several places.

In a related development, the commissioner, MCF, Mahtab Singh Sehrawat, spoke to the police commissoner, P.K.Aggarwal and urged for speedy action against the culprits.

The incident has shaken a large section of babudom here as this is the first time that a government official has been assaulted in such a manner.

Bhaskar, who sustained multiple fractures on his limbs, was attacked by three motorcycle-borne youths in the market of sector 15 in broad daylight yesterday. It appeared that the criminals had been planning to target the officer for a long time.

The fact that the three had their faces covered has made the police suspicious, leading it to believe that the attack was pre-planned. According to the police, nothing could be said with certainty as of now.
