Business Bureau,

Butibori Manufacturers Association (BMA) recently organised meeting with the newly appointed Superintendent of Police (Rural) Shailesh Balkawde at M K Goel Auditorium, BMA, MIDC, Butibori.


Shailesh Balkawde, Vijay Kumar Marathe, Deputy Superintendent of Police (Nagpur Rural), Nitin Lonkar President BMA, Jeevan Ghime Secretary of BMA were seated on dais.


Speaking on the occasion, Nitin Lonkar gave brief about Butibori Manufacturers Association and Butibori MIDC. Lonkar appreciated the support received from Police Department to Butibori Industrial Area from time to time. He said, BMA as a part of responsibility towards maintaining a theft-free industrial area is putting all efforts by way of running a night patrolling vehicle which is accompanied by Police staff of the local Police Station. “This has resulted in drastic reduction in thefts and petty crimes,” he said.


He demanded that a traffic signal be urgently put on the entry point to Butibori MIDC from National Highway which has become an accident prone zone. Sale of lliegal liquor through small tea stalls was also highlighted to the SP.
SP Shailesh Balkawde appealed industrialists to be fair to both contract and permanent labour as majority of industrial crisis arise due to different treatment to either of the category. He said that if industry could work towards resolving the issues at their end following fair labour practices, industrial crisis may not arise. “Police can control the law and order situation, however if the question of wage hike and other benefits are concerned, the department does not have any role in it,” he said.

Balkawde also assured to provide two extra police to be deputed for traffic management at the entry point of MIDC during rush hour period. He further encouraged the industrialists to install CCTV cameras in the premises at crucial points so that if any thefts or untoward incident happens then it could be easily detected and resolved with the help of the footage of CCTV.


He also underlined the importance of maintaining CCTV system, because on several occasion, it happens that cameras are not working and the whole purpose gets defeated. He urged that while employing new workers or security guards, police verification of the person should be done to know the criminal background of the person.
On this occasion a hand book printed by BMA containing important information about various aspects of industrial safety, law and order was released at the hands of Shailesh Balkawde and Vijay Marathe Jeevan Ghime conducted the programme and proposed the vote of thanks.
