Civic Issue

Civic Issue








To get smooth civic amenities we framed a policy to keep regular repo with the Local self-Government i.e. Panvel Municipal Council for Panvel Municipal Council limits and CIDCO for different nodes developed by CIDCO. We organised a joint meeting of heads of different Govt. Offices. They were invited to have a dialogue with the citizens. The attempt was very much fruitful. All the heads of department listen the problem and discussed between themselves and took the decision on the spot. It's a matter of pride us that CUF Nagar area was classified as best, green, clean and healthy area in the city of Panvel. Panvel city did not have any other public transport than auto rickshaw. But people had a problem about auto rickshaw. Auto rickshaws were not plying meter. We fought for it. To created awareness in commuters to pay fare only by meter we organised a big rally. We fill proud to mention here that more than 8000 commuters participated in this rally. We had numerous meetings with R.T.O. and Police. We collected more than two thousand complaints from commuters and ultimately filed a PIL to get justice. When we realised that it is very difficult to improve the mentality of auto rickshaw operators we thought of bus as a major public transport facility. But in Panvel Gaothan area road width is a problem. But we could get cooperation from NMMT. This resulted in to functioning of 7 bus routes in Panvel, New Panvel and Kamothe nodes. This was a great help from Navi Mumbai Motor Transport to start some bus routes in Panvel. There was also an incidence we had to organise a Morcha against Local Self-Government for substandard of civic amenities. More than 70 other non-political social organisations participated in tis Morcha.
