What is the reason behind rising sewage issues?

More or less every area in New Ghaziabad has sewage problem. It has become a prime issue that needs urgent attention. We spoke to some residents about the causes of sewage problem in their area and this is what they said.


Poor planning

Kaushambi is a perfect example of poor planning of the GDA and the GNN while laying sewage lines. The plans were not analysed properly and finally, they turned out to be a fiasco.

Event manager arrested in chain-snatching case

During a shootout between the police and a duo of chain-snatchers in Indirapuram area of Ghaziabad, the police nabbed a former event-manager,

Rahul Tiwari, while his accomplice, Sonu Kumar - an unemployed software engineer - managed to flee. The accused admitted to his involvement in over 50 chain--snatching incidents in Vasundhara, Indirapuram, Vaishali and Kaushambi.

"When a police patrol tried to stop the two men on a bike, they increased the speed of their vehicle. When we chased them, they opened fire with country-made pistol," circle officer (CO) Kamlesh Bahadur said.

Both are in the age-group of around 28-30 years and are residents of Malviya Nagar. "Tiwari has revealed that they have several other unemployed educated men in their group. They especially target posh areas of Indirapuram. Both of the accused had lost their jobs around six months back. We have launched a manhunt for others," CO added.


Residents of Ahinsa Khand-II, who were jubilant after the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) sanctioned Rs 7 crore for the development of the area, have been waiting for the work to start.Scheduled to get started in October, there has been no sign of work till date. Residents fear that if not started soon, the funds allotted for this work may get diverted for some other work. "It was our tedious efforts that persuaded the authorities to show some concern towards the development of this area and sanction such a big amount. From roads, sewerage to lights everything has worn out in Ahinsa Khand-II and need urgent attention. However, the work always gets delayed due to unnecessary things," said Alok Kumar, president, Arihant Harmony, Ahinsa Khand-II.

For solving sewage issues, residents have to spend Rs 5000-6000 to call super sucker machines to unblock the sewage. Besides this, poor condition of roads here invites troubles everyday for the commuters. It was also decided that fancy lights will also be installed. However, not a single work out of these three assigned works has started. The representatives of Ahinsa Khand-II along with federation members have taken up this issue over and again with the GDA officials. However, they got only false assurances that the work will start soon. "It took several months to convince authorities to pay some heed towards the development of this area and now we don't want to wait further for the work to start. They have also conducted several surveys in the area through their supervisors and contractors," said LN Garg.

Recently, Sunil Garg of Sunil Garg and Company, which has got the contract of road and drainage by the GDA, visited Ahinsa Khand-II. The meeting was also attended by Ahinsa Khand-II Vikas Manch president KP Tyagi, vice-president JC Panth, secretary Alok Kumar and many other members. When Cityplus asked Sunil Garg about the status of the commencement of work, he said, "The technical aspects of the development work are clear and financial requirements have also been met. Only some contractual formalities are left which we are expecting to get cleared in a couple of days. The work will start soon."


After seeing the huge success of Ramlila for the first time at Shakti Khand-II, Indirapuram near Rail Vihar last year, the Ramlila committee has staged its second year's Ramlila at a stupendous scale this time. From security, special attractions to huge effigies everything has been monitored minutely to attract huge number of visitors. Started on September 28, the Ramlila will be staged till October 7. On the first day only, the visitors footfall was more than 1000. 
Spread in 40,000 sq meters this year's Ramlila can accommodate not only the visitors from Shakti Khand-II, but also from the nearby areas. This year, the height and width of the stage is 120 feet by 60 feet. 
Besides, VIP cabin and media bay, there is a space for 12000 people to sit. More fruit chaat stalls and amusement rides for children have also been installed. "Keeping in mind, the parking problems during Ramlilas, we have specified space for parking which can easily accommodate 2000 vehicles. There are guards at the parking lot to provide assistance to people in parking their vehicles," said Kuldeep Saxena, treasurer, Confederation of Trans Hindon RWAs. 
The effigies of Ravan, Kumbhkaran and Meghnath which will be burnt on the Dussehra are of 45, 40 and 35 feet high. The special highlight of the show will be use of remote to burn the effigies. Moreover, the crackers in the effigies will make more sound than pollution. "The crackers have been chosen keeping the effects of air pollution in mind. The crackers will not spread smoke but will make loud sounds," added Saxena. 
As far as security is concerned, apart from local police, a security agency has also been roped in and committee's volunteers are keeping supervision on the control of the security agency. Over 100 security personnel are deployed 
with walky talkies. CCTV cameras and metal detectors have been installed while special checking is done on the entry gate.


Residents of Kaushambi, Vasundhra, Vaishali and Indirapuram have been running from pillar to post for a public hospital or dispensary in the area. Innumerable appeals to three different district magistrates in the last two years have fallen on deaf ears.

With no public or government hospital or dispensary, residents of these areas are deprived of economical treatment. As a result, they are forced to go to private hospitals which is a huge financial drain.

"I'm a Central Government employee and a beneficiary of Central Government's Health Scheme (CGHS). However, most of the time, I have to either rely on dispensaries in Delhi, especially the nearest one at Vivek Vihar or go to dispensaries in old Ghaziabad, which are very far. Many a time, it takes a lot of time to reach these dispensaries. Hence, I depend on private hospitals located near my house. Like me, there are many senior citizens and other middle-class families who cannot afford expensive treatment every time," said BN Goyal, president, Federation of Vaishali High Rise Buildings. On many occasions, the Federation of Ghaziabad RWAs has raised this issue before the District Magistrate of Ghaziabad but nothing has happened. Federation of Ghaziabad RWAs chairman Col Tejinder Pal Tyagi said, "We first appealed to District Magistrate Hridesh Kumar and next DM Ramesh Kumar. Now, we have also appealed to present DM Shashi Bhushan. It seems our applications are just passing from one table to another. The DMs told us that the decision to construct a public hospital lies with the UP government. But everybody is aware that reaching the government directly is not easy for the common man and it is the duty of district magistrates to send the application. I want to ask all the three DMs that how much efforts they have made to pass on our applications to the higher authorities?"

Day One: 30,000 hop on to Vaishali Metro

Ghaziabad : For Sachin Tomar, the five-year wait for Delhi  Metro to reach Ghaziabad finally got over on Thursday. He was one of the passengers on the first train to leave the Vaishali station as it started operations. "Since we moved into our flat in Ghaziabad in 2007, we had been waiting for this day. We woke up at 5am today and walked across the road to the station. The Metro coming to Vaishali means a lot for us and thousand others in Ghaziabad," said Tomar.

As many as 19,500 commuters from Vaishali and 9,600 from Kaushambi agree with Tomar. The 2.57-km extension saw almost 30,000 commuters get on the Dwarka-Anand Vihar corridor from the two new stations on the first day. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is expecting an addition of 40,000 commuters on this line, with the majority coming from Vaishali.

On Thursday, the excitement was palpable. As the clock struck seven, the Metro station at Vaishali reverberated with claps as residents of Vaishali, Indirapuram and nearby areas welcomed the start of the first train on the line. Anil Marwah — who has been the first commuter on other Metro route openings as well — was the first smart card purchaser from the station once again. Working men and women, who travel to Delhi every day, looked relieved. "I had to drive till Anand Vihar station, which takes over half an hour, and then get to the station which took another 10 minutes. Around an hour was wasted in just reaching the Metro. Now, I can save all that time in the morning. I can use it for some other work and walk to the Metro station, which takes just five minutes. This is amazing," said Abhishek Mishra, who boarded the first Metro from Vaishali station.
