Fire department will survey commercial properties in Jaipur – ET RealEstate

JAIPUR: City’s fire department has started surveying the commercial properties to have a look at the fire security systems on their premises.

Over the last few days, fire security in the city’s commercial places has become a major issue.

The fire department in JMC, Greater has given a task to its officers in each zone to survey commercial properties and submit a report. Based on this report, action will be taken against these private property owners.

Jagdish Phulwari, chief fire officer of JMC, Greater, said, “We had a meeting with the officials last week and since then all our officers are going regularly to these properties. At many places, fire system is not working and, in many places, they do not have the NOC. So, we have decided to survey all the properties in the area and make a comprehensive report.”

On Saturday, JMC, Greater mayor Somya Gurjar along with other officials went on a surprise inspection to some shopping malls of the city and found that fire systems were not in place at many spots and NOC of the buildings were not updated.

Paras Jain, chairman of the fire committee, said that these surprise inspections show the condition of fire security. “We are taking this issue seriously as fire security lapse can be a reason for potential mishap in the city. We have already given notices to the owners of these malls and action will be taken against them, but now we will take it to another level and survey other properties as well,” said Jain.

The first report of the fire survey will be submitted on March 17, 2021, after which notices will be issued to the owners of commercial properties.

Jaipur: Vacant flats for poor to be given on rent – ET RealEstate

JAIPUR: Flats constructed for the slum dwellers in the city will now be given on rent to others as none of the dwellers have shown any interest in shifting to these houses.

Around 1,968, flats were developed in Jaisinghpura Khor Block A&C for Kacchi Basti dwellers and were asked by the government to give their consent that they are ready to shift in writing.

None of the slum dwellers, however, applied in Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC), Heritage, reacting to which now those flats will be given on rent to other companies or individuals. The decision of not applying to the JMC, Heritage for flats will have difficult consequences on slum dwellers as now they have lost the right to be provided an accommodation by the government while authorities can remove them from the land whenever they want.

A senior official of JMC, Heritage, on condition of anonymity said, “Slum dwellers were given time and they didn’t submit their consent and now they have lost the right to get accommodation. The land they are currently residing will be considered as encroachment. Proceedings are on and in a recent meeting at RUDISCO, it has been decided that all the vacant properties constructed under various schemes in the state will now be given under Affordable Rental Housing Complex (ARHC) under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna.”

The decision was taken to make these houses useful for others who are not able to afford houses in the city instead of waiting for others to shift.

The flats at Jaisinghpura Khor were constructed by Jaipur Development Authority (JDA), hence it was decided that it will be inviting proposals for rent. Very soon, the file will be sent to make these properties available on rent. According to the minutes of the meeting held in RUDISCO, it was mentioned that of the total 11,772 flats in Rajasthan, 7,095 are unoccupied and 4,677 are under-construction.

Out of 15 cities mentioned in Rajasthan, 5,234 houses are unoccupied in Jaipur, highest in the state. In 324 cities of the country, over 1.19 lakh houses are lying vacant constructed under various schemes for affordable housing for the poor.

Jaipur development body approved colonies yet to get basic facilities – ET RealEstate

JAIPUR: Besides other civic problems, no drainage system is the major issue that the residents of wards in Vidhyadhar Nagar are facing.

Many colonies were approved by the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA), but after five years, residents are still waiting for proper roads and sewerage lines in their areas.

Deepak Maheshwari, a resident of the area, said, “The colonies developed the civic body are functioning properly. However, most of the colonies do not have civic facilities. There is no co-operation from the government officials as well.”

General board of Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) ceased to exist last year in November. Since then, civic work has been neglected in the area. Now, local representatives are not in charge, the advantage of which is being taken by the officials.

“Door-to-door garbage collection is totally failed. Except in main roads, vehicles do not come to the inner lanes. Depots are coming back and sanitation condition is degrading,” said Rashmi Jain, another resident.

Most of the colonies do not have drainage system and waterlogging is a big problem over there. During monsoon, waterlogged roads had become a major problem as many people were stuck in traffic for long hours.

“In kachhi basti, condition is bad as people are not that politically connected to get their work done. During monsoon, people have to struggle in the locality to get out of their house due to chocked sewerage line and waterlogged roads,” said Kehsav Dhanka, a resident.

In 2014, out of 14 wards in Vidhyadhar Nagar legislative assembly area, 10 seats were with BJP, 2 independents and 2 Congress.
