With painful memories of the horrendous building collapse incident at Lalita Park still fresh in the minds of the residents, there are chances that same can happen in Krishna Nagar as well. 

Due to huge water logging in this area, risk of weakening of base of buildings is quite high here. Above all, authorities are negligent towards this area where more than two lakh people reside. According to many residents, water has entered the ground floor of their houses and is ruining their walls and pillars. "Krishna Nagar is a posh colony, but in monsoons, it becomes a terrible place to live in. Water floods the roads and we are forced to wade through the knee-deep water. We have brought this issue in front of the local authorities and the engineers of the MCD many a time. We want the authorities to act urgently so that the situation in the area eases," said BS Vohra, president, East Delhi RWA Joint Front. 

Besides this, chances of outbreak of many dreadful diseases are also high which can worsen the situation. The frequent traffic jams in the area have added to the problem. "Shoppers in large number throng Krishna Nagar market from all across the city. The knee-deep water here results in long frequent traffic jams which trouble everyone. Moreover, the roads have also got worn out resulting in a loss of huge amount of money spent on these roads," said Rashmi Kataria, a resident of Krishna Nagar. 

An MCD engineer on the condition of anonymity revealed that the poor drainage system here has led to this situation. The water is drained out through only one pump house which is at E block. 

Many people are scared that Lalitha Park like incident can happen here due to the water logging. 

what authorities say
We have taken a lot of measures to ease the situation and the residents are quite satisfied with our efforts. But still, there are some problems which will be solved soon.
— Dr Harshvardhan, 
MLA, Krishna Nagar

The treatment work is going on. There are nallahs being dug for the drainage system. Once the nallah construction work is done, 90% of the work will be done and things will get fine as drainage system will improve. It will take a month's time.
— Dr VK Monga, 
Chairman, MCD's public health committee 

A total of 26 cases of malaria have been reported from East Delhi in July and with water logging in many areas like Krishna Nagar, the toll may rise further.
— Dr Ajay Lekhi, 
President, IMA, East Delhi branch

Since Krishna Nagar is a low lying area, nothing can be done for the improvement of the drainage system. As such, there is no proposal from the higher authorities to solve the drainage problem.
— S D Tomar, 
executive engineer, MCD (maintenance)

We have brought this issue in front of the local authorities and the engineers of the MCD many a time. We want the authorities to act urgently so that the situation in the area eases.

President, East Delhi RWA Joint Front

Delhi Jal Board - plz define the logic of inspection fees & service charge ?

Delhi Jal Board is charging sewer inspection fee and service charge. Are DJB are inspecting sewer every month.I have not seen any inspection of sewew by the concerned authority so it is grossly unfair to charege sewer inspection fee on every bill.DGB is also charging service chrge on the bill, one fail to under stand that what extra servic is being provided by the DJB to consumers .On a bill of Rs.131 sewer inspection fee is Rs.78 and service charge is Rs.288 this constitutes the 272% of the actual water charges. This is irrational and defy logic. Why RWAs should not take up the matter with DJB.

अब बिजली उपभोक्ताओं को लोड बढ़वाने के नोटिस

बिजली वितरण कंपनियां भेज रही हैं उपभोक्ताओं को नोटिस घरेलू उपभोक्ताओं को एक किलोवाट लोड बढ़वाने पर जमा करानी होगी 600 रुपए सुरक्षा निधि

नई दिल्ली (एसएनबी)। बिजली दरें तो अभी नहीं बढ़ी हैं, लेकिन वितरण कंपनियों ने घरेलू व व्यावसायिक उपभोक्ताओं को लोड बढ़ाने का नोटिस जारी करना शुरू कर दिया है। शुक्रवार को नोटिस के विरोध में उपभोक्ताओं ने कई स्थानों पर विरोध प्रदर्शन भी किए। हालांकि इस मामले में आरडब्ल्यूए पदाधिकारियों और बिजली वितरण कंपनियों के बीच बृहस्पतिवार को चर्चा भी हुई थी, लेकिन वह बेनतीजा रही। आरडब्ल्यूएपदाधिकारी अब लोड बढ़ाने के लिए भेजे गए नोटिसों के विरोध में डीईआरसी मुख्यालय पर सशक्त प्रदर्शन की तैयारी कर रहे हैं। इन दिनों बिजली वितरण कंपनियां दरें बढ़ाने के लिए एड़ी चोटी का जोर लगाने के साथ ही उपभोक्ताओं को लोड बढ़ाने के नोटिस भी भेज रही है। यह कवायद पिछले एक माह से चल रही है। लोड बढ़ाने के बदले घरेलू, इंडस्ट्रियल और कामर्शियल उपभोक्ताओं से अलग -अलग सुरक्षा निधि जमा कराई जा रही है। घरेलू उपभोक्ताओं से 600 रुपए प्रति किलोवाट व इंडस्ट्रियल और कामर्शियल उपभोक्ताओं से 1500 रुपए प्रति किलोवाट की दर से सुरक्षा निधि जमा कराई जा रही है। इससे एक-एक उद्यमी पर 5 से 20 हजार रुपए का अतिरिक्त बोझ पड़ रहा है। 

बिजली कंपनियों की दलील है कि उपभोक्ताओं के घरों में बिजली की खपत बढ़ी है तो उन्हें लोड भी बढ़वाना चाहिए। सूत्रों के मुताबिक, बीएसईएस यमुना , बीएसईएस राजधानी और एनडीपीएल ने लोड बढ़वाने के लिए जून माह से नोटिस भेजने शुरू किए हैं। नोटिस से उपभोक्ताओं में खलबली मची हुई है।आरडब्ल्यूए फेडरेशन पूर्वी दिल्ली के अध्यक्ष अनिल वाजपेई ने आरोप लगाया कि बिजली कंपनियां उपभोक्ताओं को लूटने में लगी हैं। उन्होंने कहा कि अगर कोई उपभोक्ता एक किलोवाट का कनेक्शन लेता है और एक किलोवाट की क्षमता से अधिक बिजली का उपभोग कर लेता है तो उस पर लोड बढ़वाने का दबाव बिजली कंपनियां नोटिस भेजकर डाल रही हैं। लोड बढ़वाने के नाम पर भी बिजली कंपनियां वसूली कर रही हैं। उन्होंने कहा कि गर्मियों में बिजली की खपत बढ़ना स्वाभाविक है। इसलिए उपभोक्ताओं पर लोड बढ़वाने का दबाव नहीं डाला जाना चाहिए।

 पूर्वी दिल्ली आरडब्ल्यूए संयुक्त मोर्चा के अध्यक्ष बी एस बोहरा ने कहा कि बिजली वितरण कंपनी बीएसईएस यमुना ने कृष्ण विहार, प्रीति विहार सहित अन्य कालोनी वासियों को लोड बढ़वाने के लिए नोटिस भेजे हैं। जिस उपभोक्ता को लोड एक किलोवाट से 2 किलोवाट कराना है, उसे 600 रुपए सुरक्षा निधि के जमा करने होंगे। इसी तरह, जिस उपभोक्ता को लोड 2 से 4 किलोवाट कराना है, उसे 2400 रुपए जमा कराने होंगे। इस तरह, कामर्शियल उपभोक्ता को लोड बढ़वाने पर 1500 रुपए प्रति किलोवाट सुरक्षा निधि जमा करानी होगी। उधर, पूर्वी दिल्ली में बिजली आपूर्ति करने वाली वितरण कंपनी के एक अधिकारी ने कहा कि लोगों ने जब कनेक्शन लिए थे, तब उनके घरों में केवलपंखे और बल्व लगे होते थे। लेकिन अब घरों में बिजली उपभोग काफी बढ़ गया है। इलेक्ट्रॉनिक सामान पर लोगों की निर्भरता ज्यादा बढ़ी है। उन्होंने कहा कि नोटिस उन्हीं उपभोक्ताओं को भेजे गए हैं, जिनके घरों में पिछले तीन माह में खपत काफी बढ़ी है।

Complete dark in Sant Nagar - Burari main Road

Since last more than 20 days. In night hours it has become unsafe to the public of Sant Nagar and Burari. MCD and NDPL and leaders of the area are not taking care. May I know the reason of keeping dark in Sant Nagar Burari?. The criminal activities increasing day by day in this area due to darkness in night hours. The responsible authority may kindly see and take necessary action urgently.

My car book says to roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on AC.
Car Air Conditioning - No wonder more folks are dying from cancer than ever before. We wonder where this stuff comes from but here is an example that explains a lot of the cancer causing incidents.    
Many people are in their cars first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, 7 days a week.
As I read this, it makes me feel guilty and ill.  Please pass this on to as many people as possible.  Guess it’s not too late to make some changes.
Please do NOT turn on AC as soon as you enter the car.                       
Open the windows after you enter your car and then turn ON the AC after a couple of minutes of driving.
Here's why:   According to research, the car dashboard, seats, air freshener emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen - take time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car).
In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer. Can also cause miscarriage.                     
Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft. A car parked indoors with windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene.
If parked outdoors under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level.
People who get into the car, keeping windows closed will inevitably inhale, in quick succession, excessive amounts of the toxin.

Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver. What's worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.
So friends, please open the windows and door of your car - give time for interior to air out -dispel the deadly stuff - before you enter.
Thought: 'When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.'                       
This is what  says.  It is not the air conditioning in the car but the Benzene producing agents that causes cancer.
