Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Guardian Minister of district, asked District Collector and Municipal Commissioner to initiate joint action and remove the encroachment on Zingabai Takli land identified for dwelling units under Basic Services to Urban Poor (BSUP) scheme of Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM).


The said land is categorised as Zudpi Jungle, and a proposal has been sent to the Central Government to hand it over to Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC). Currently, there is a slum on this land. As many as 145 families living in these slums will be given dwelling units under BSUP scheme. However, 50 of these families have not yet shifted. Hence, they should be shifted at the earliest and encroachment of slums be removed to pave way for the project, said Bawankule.

He was addressing the officials of the district administration, NMC, and Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT), in a meeting held at NIT on Tuesday. He said that the decision regarding development plan road in the said area would be taken by Dr Deepak Mhaisekar, NIT Chairman.


Taking cognisance of the complaints filed by citizens regarding works done by NIT in Avtar Meher Baba in Chikhli being sub-standard, Bawankule asked NIT Chairman to inspect the quality of the said works.

He issued similar instructions on receiving complaints regarding sub-standard works in South-West Nagpur constituency of State Legislative Assembly. During the meeting, the Guardian Minister of the district asked officials to remove unauthorised construction in the premises of Nimishamba Devi Mandir along Koradi Road.


On the issue of dispute between Mamata Society and one Bhoyar over the layout in land in Khasra Nos 79/1 and 79/2 at Besa-Beltarodi, Bawankule asked the police officials to extend co-operation to Sub-Divisional Officer for joint measurement of the land.

The goons have encroached upon the land and demolish the construction done by the residents, which may result in law and order situation, and hence the cops must act in time, he said.


Bawankule also asked the Municipal Commissioner to ensure that nullahs flowing out of the city into the rural areas were cleaned up to 10 kms outside city limits, by May 30. He also directed the officials of NIT and Public Works Department to take up metaling and tarring of seven roads under their jurisdictions. He also asked the officials concerned to develop a garden in open space in Ramesh Estate, Ghogli.


Sudhakar Kohale, Krishna Khopde, Sameer Meghe, all MLAs; Dr Deepak Mhaisekar, NIT Chairman; Ashwin Mudgal, Municipal Commissioner were present in the meeting.
