The environment that gives the residents a Super Life with a Super status

As per Wikipedia, “Environment is everything that is around us. It can be living or nonliving things. It includes physical, chemical and other natural forces. Living things live in their environment. They constantly interact with it and change in response to conditions in their environment.” And this is the hardcore truth. If we are living in a most polluted city, i.e. Delhi, we have to adjust our lives accordingly. If it is the most populated, with massive traffic jams, with many other issues, we have no options, but to adjust our lives accordingly.

As, it is the same city, that gives us a Super Life too. Just enter it from any of its borders and you will feel the difference. The difference, that emerges clearly from your eyes, mind, heart as well as your soul. This political capital of India is a city of Flyovers to move from one end to another. The Metro has given it a greater connectivity that is being enjoyed by one & all. The top-rated Railway stations & Airports have given it a super statusThe beautiful malls on every corner enhance the shopping power of residents to a greater extent. And the emergence of Vodafone as the strong player has made it very well connected digitally & otherwise.

Yeah, we can say that in spite of various issues connecting the National capital, it has got a Super Life and has also resulted in the super development of the NCR areas, such as Gurugram, Faridabad, Noida, Greater Noida as well Sonipat. The residents of these areas are today enjoying a Super Life, but it was not there till a few years ago when there were no flyovers, no big malls & no Delhi Metro. The life was not the same when there was no Vodafone too. I still remember the days of a dozen disconnections, a dozen missed calls, a dozen missed opportunities, every hour, and it was just a routine till Vodafone had not emerged as the strongest service provider in Delhi & NCR. 

I still remember the days when I used to get messages to my SMS that my mobile is out of reach. The service provider that I was using at that time was not strong enough to provide quality signals all over. The result was that there were no incoming rings as I was mostly out of the reach, due to weak signals, and if there was a ring, there was a very low voice both inwards & outwards, that was difficult to hear, and thirdly, the call used to disconnect at every few seconds. The only incoming thing at that time was the hefty bills due to the nuisance mentioned above. And all this was happening in the mega city that is known as New Delhi, all over the world.

I still remember that after my dozens of complaints, the service provider sent a team with certain instruments to check the signal strength at my home & shockingly there was NO CONNECTIVITY at my residence as per that equipment & they were sending me hefty bills and I was forced to pay all those bills every month. The minute Vodafone emerged as the strongest player in the mobile sector, I immediately switched towards Vodafone, years ago, and till date, I have no problem with it.  Thanks to Vodafone as that was the time when my tensions, my problems due to poor connection vanished and till date, I am using the Vodafone as its proud customer.

Vodafone has indeed helped Delhi in getting a super status by digitally connecting the entire Delhi & NCR, as it is already having more than 1.2 crore customers in these areas. Vodafone has also opened Free WI-FI hotspots at various locations to make the City & NCR digitally connected. It is also giving a boost to the new startups. It has also created Airy-purifying bus shelters for the benefit of those traveling in this most polluted city. If you are not yet connected via Vodafone, till date, just try it once for the super life & a  super status. Just log on to

Delhi residents fear diseases may spread soon : DNA

The garbage dumps outside most homes have led to an alarming rise in dengue, malaria, and viral fever, affecting the overall health condition of the national capital

The sanitation workers’ strike in the last one year has caused a lot of inconvenience to the city residents. Heaps of garbage on the roads have become a regular sight for locals especially for those living in east Delhi. The garbage dumps outside most homes have led to an alarming rise in dengue, malaria, and viral fever, affecting the overall health condition of the national capital.
“The stink emanating from garbage has made it difficult for us to even walk in the area. The corporation should understand the sensitivity of the issue and address it. The piled-up garbage can spread many diseases, and result in a pest situation,” said BS Vohra, president of east Delhi RWA’s Joint Front Federation.
Doctors and public health officials have sent out a warning that Delhi could soon be hit by an epidemic if there is any more delay in tackling the situation. According to doctors, decayed household waste items, containing mostly solid waste like half-eaten vegetables and meat products, may give rise to bacterial illnesses such as typhoid and jaundice that spread through contaminated food and water.
“This is the time of the year when water-borne diseases like malaria and typhoid are on the rise. Young kids are susceptible to such diseases. All precautionary measures must be taken by parents. We advise all our patients to maintain good hygiene levels,” said Dr SP Byotra, department of internal medicine, Sir Ganga Ram hospital.
Recently, the Delhi High Court also pulled up the authorities for the ongoing health crisis in the Capital. A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar said the failure to remove garbage and clean the dhalaos (dumps) have major repercussions. It results in the breeding of disease-bearing mosquito larvae leading to serious diseases like dengue and chikungunya. “Safai karamcharis shall ensure that they seriously carry out the assigned duties of MCDs and no obstruction shall be caused. There can be no stoppage of essential work of cleaning and removal of garbage. Doing so imperils lives of the public at large,” the bench said.
During the hearing, central government standing counsel Monika Arora said that there were some safai karmacharis who were creating problems and refusing to discharge their duties, and also stopping others from doing work. Consequently, she said, garbage was accumulating on roads having an adverse impact on the health of the residents.


As per recommendations of the Third Delhi Finance Commission, the three municipalities must receive 10.5% of the amount from the city government collected through duties, toll and other taxes under the non-plan head. The grant is divided into three parts — 5% (education expenditure), 4% (routine assignments) and 1.5% (municipal reform funds). Under Article 243 of the Indian Constitution, if the municipalities are in financial distress then the state government has a responsibility to provide assistance. Corporations want the Fourth Finance Commission’s recommendations, which are pending since 2012, to be implemented. This will take the state government grant to Rs 8,000 crore.

National Organ Donation Awareness Program

We are organizing National  Organ Donation Awareness Program  on the occasion of Indian Organ Donation Day under aegis of NOTTO (National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organization ), under Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govt of India, in association with Safdarjang Hospital and VMMC, North Zone Urology Society of India ,Udai India Knowledge Tree and Delhi Medical Association, on 22 October at Constitutional club of India,Mabalankar Auditorium, New Delhi. Timing- 9am - 12 noon.

This is the initiative of North Zone Urology Society of India(NZ-USI) to create awareness among general population along with capacity building measures to strengthen organ transplant program in India, in collaboration with NOTTO.

A huge gap exists between the patients who need organ transplants and the availability of potential donors in our country. Average life expectancy of India's population is increasing and problems like diabetes, one of the main causes of kidney failure, are expected to rise, creating greater demand for organ donations. There is an urgent need to promote organ donation and dispel the myths and misconceptions that surround organ donation.

The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India has implemented Transplantation of Human Organs Act 1994 which was subsequently amended in 2011. The purpose of the act is to develop a system of Organ Transplantation for therapeutic purposes and to prevent commercial dealings in Organs. 

This program will spread awareness about deceased Organ Donation and will dispel the myths and misconceptions regarding Organ Donation. This program also envisages to review the current status of Organ Donation and Transplantation and felicitate Organ Donors & their families. We have invited Dharam Gurus of all religions to spread the noble message of Organ Donation in general population.

Around 800-1000  people representing all sections of society will participate in this event.

Many eminent persons are coming - Swami Ram Dev, Swami Chidanand Saraswati(Parmarth Niketan), Ajmer-e-sharif  Dargah Chief, Shri Prem Ji Goyal (Senior RSS leader), Shri Shyam Jaju( National Vice President BJP) Union Minister of state of Health and Family Welfare , Smt Anupriya Patel, Union Minister of  State of Home Affairs Shri Kiren Rijiju, Shri Manoj Tiwari ( Delhi BJP president).

We request you to join this program and spread this information among your members to attend this program to create awareness about organ donation in case of brain death and to know more from Dharam gurus about organ donation.

TOI : Sanitation stir off, some stick to guns

NEW DELHI: The strike by sanitation workers was called off partially on Wednesday after a meeting between union leaders and the deliberative wing of the three municipal corporations in the evening.

Standing committee chairman of North Delhi Municipal Corporation, Tilak Raj Kataria, said, "We met the union leaders and assured them of fulfilling their demands. A high-level committee comprising members and officials from north and east corporations will be formed to find a solution to the demands of safari karamcharis."

However, Sanjay Gahlot, president of MCD Swachhta Karamchari Union, said that they are in no mood to back out even though a few unions have called off their strike. "We will be on strike till our demands are met," he added. Around 11,000 workers of the total 60,000 have decided not to call off their strike.

Earlier, a group of safai karamcharis had protested outside the office of Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari at Yamuna Vihar due to non-payment of arrears and regularisation of employment.

"We also burnt Tiwari's effigy for making false promises to us. He had told us that once BJP wins the civic elections, they will ensure that all safai karamcharis are regularised and their arrears are cleared. But now no one is coming to help us," said Gahlot.

With workers being on strike for days, east Delhi areas have been the worst affected with garbage remaining dumped on the roads. The areas include Geeta Colony, Krishna Nagar, Vishwas Nagar, Pandav Nagar, Laxmi Nagar and Shakarpur. When residents tried to get the mess cleared by a private labourer, the agitating safai karamcharis blocked their efforts.

"Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal should intervene in the sanitation crisis and provide a solution," said BS Vohra, president of RWA Federation of East Delhi.

EDMC workers go on indefinite strike over non-payment of dues, people suffer

New Delhi [India], October 12 (ANI): The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) sanitation workers went on an indefinite strike on Thursday over non-payment of dues.

The workers held protests against EDMC Mayor Neema Bhagat, outside her office in Delhi's Geeta Colony.
The protestors shouted slogans against the Delhi Government and the Centre. They also made an effigy of Mayor Bhagat, and took turns to blow kicks at it.
Meanwhile, the strike has caused inconvenience to the public, which complained of heaps of garbage lying at various spots in the city.
"We are facing a lot of problems due to the garbage; cases of Chikungunya and Dengue are on the rise. Workers don't come to clean, and neither drains nor the roads are getting cleaned. There are heaps of garbage at so many spots," Delhi resident Vijay Kumar told ANI.

"The problem has been continuing for two-three years now. There is always a strike for one or the other reason. We completely sympathize with the sanitation workers, but we'll also question our elected government, the mayor, and the MPs. What are they doing while the people are living in such unhygienic conditions?" said another resident, B.S. Vohra. (ANI)

बस अब और नहीं, पूर्वी दिल्ली का बहुत कचरा हो गया

पूर्वी दिल्ली मे सफाई करंचारियों की एक बार फिर से हड़ताल. सड़कों से कचरा उठना बंद. जगह जगह कचरे के ढेर लगने शुरू. ढलाओं मे भी कचरा भरना शुरू. फिर से वो ही गंद और बदबू का आलम. 

आख़िर चल क्या रहा है? कौन ज़िम्मेदार है इन हड़तालों के लिए, जो कि पिछले कुछ सालों से लगातार होने लगी हैं? क्यों सरकारी एजेन्सीस इन हड़तालों को रोकने मे नाकाम हो रही हैं? क्यों सफाई करंचारियों को उनके पैसे नही मिलते?

क्यों लोगों की तकलीफ़ों का हल नही निकलता? क्यों लोगों को इस कचरा राजनीति के चलते, खुद कचरा होना पड़ता है?  क्यों ये सब कुछ सिर्फ़ पूर्वी दिल्ली मे ही होता है? क्यों हमे इस सड़े बदबूदार कचरे के साथ जीने को मजबूर होना पड़ता है?

किधर हैं हमारे वो नेता, जो चुनावों से पहले तो बड़े बड़े वादे करते हैं, बड़े बड़े दावे करते हैं, और जीतने के बाद, सिर्फ़ दोषारोपण करते हैं? कब तक उनकी नाकामियों की सज़ा लोगों को भुगतनी पड़ेगी?

बस अब और नहीं, बहुत कचरा हो गया. अब इस कचरे को सहना मुश्किल है. अब इस कचरे मे जीना मुश्किल है. अब इस कचरे मे साँस लेना मुश्किल है. अब उन नेताओं को सहना मुश्किल है जो सिर्फ़ कचरा करते हैं.

दोस्तो आवाज़ उठाओ. अपने चुने हुए नेताओं को सोती नींद से जगाओ. उनको बताओ कि हम अभी जिंदा हैं. और जिंदा इंसान कुछ भी बर्दाश्त कर सकता है, लेकिन धोका नहीं, अन्याय नहीं. बस अब और नहीं, पूर्वी दिल्ली का बहुत कचरा हो गया.

Residents oppose clause in proposed parking policy : The Hindu

The East Delhi Residents’ Welfare Associations Joint Front on Wednesday said it opposed a clause in the proposed parking policy that will charge people for parking their vehicles on roadside outside their houses.
The collective submitted an appeal to the Delhi government’s Transport Department and to the East Delhi Municipal Corporation.
The appeal said that the government can fix as high a charge in commercial hubs, markets, multilevel parking lots and on roadsides, but to charge a fee for parking vehicles outside houses will come as a jolt to the common man.
President of the RWA collective B. S. Vohra said that they will “vehemently oppose” this clause of the new parking policy.

Tax burden

“We are against any parking fee for parking our own vehicles outside our own houses. First the government charges us income tax then we have to pay as much as 28% as GST and other taxes for taking our vehicles out on the road, said Mr. Vohra.
“Apart from this, they charge us road tax and house tax. The government does not want to give us services in return for all the taxes they suck out of us but want to keep charging taxes,” he added.
“Each charge should come with a service in return. Just like if we pay for the parking in designated lots, then it is the operator’s responsibility to keep it safe. So, if we are paying the government for a parking spot outside our houses, will they guarantee that the cars will be kept safe? Will they ensure 100% compensation for each instance of vehicle theft or damage?” Mr. Vohra asked.
He added that the government should also in such case ensure that there are no potholes or waterlogging on roads outside houses where the cars are parked.

‘Explain decision’

Manohar Joshi, a resident of Patparganj and a member of the local RWA, also demanded that the idea behind the implementation of this charge be explained to the people of the city.
“We have asked for an appointment with the special commissioner (transport) regarding charging a fee from residents for using the space outside their own houses. What purpose will it serve? How will it decongest Delhi, and how will it bring down pollution? We just want to understand what purpose does this serve,” he said.

Will oppose any Parking charges for Parking our Car, in front of our home

We are absolutely against any parking charges on the parking of our own car in front of our own home. First, they charge Income Tax & after that, we have to pay 28% as GST + other Taxes / Charges for taking our vehicle on the Road.  Next is a REGULAR - more than 100% margin on the sale of Petrol & Diesel by way of GST. They have a Tax on the Insurance policies. They charge Road Tax. They charge House Tax. And now they want a Parking charge on our car for parking it in front of our own home. Strange & Shocking. They just want MONEY. More & more money from ordinary people, but they don't have an answer to our problems. They must answer:

Will they provide a Security to our car parked outside our home? Will they assure that our car will no more be lifted/stolen, while parked at our gate? Will they ensure immediate  100% compensation for every such instance? Will they pay us for any damage to the vehicle parked outside our gate? Will they take care of our Car during Monsoon, in case there is waterlogging? Will they check that there are no potholes in front of our home? Will they check that no one else can park his/her vehicle in front of our home? Will they look after all the quarrels we face with outsiders for parking our car in front of our home? NO! They just want MONEY. More & more money from ordinary people. And we become puppets in the hands of those, whom we ourselves vote, elect & give power.

If they don't have an answer to above, we will oppose any such move, in every possible manner. Please go through our objections/suggestions, filed with the concerned authorities in the month of July:


12th July, 2017

Special Commissioner Transport
Room No. 208, Second Floor,
Transport Department, GNCT of Delhi,
5/9 Underhill Road, Delhi-110054.

Dear Sir,

You can decide and Fix any parking charges for the parking of vehicles in the Markets, Commercial places, multilevel parking, to de - congest the roads and to control the pollution.

But you should never allow any Day, and / or Night parking charges from the residents for parking their own vehicles outside their own homes. Please note as below in this regard:

1.  Please note, for every sale of all such vehicles Govt has already earned a huge share in VAT, EXCISE, Registration charges, Road Tax as well the service tax on the insurance policies of these vehicles, and the Income tax from the genuine buyers. They are already earning a lot on the sale of Petrol and Diesel for all these vehicles. Even after the GST regime, they still have a huge share out of the 28% levied on vehicles.

2.  It’s sad and shocking that now Govt is eying the parked vehicles of the residents, outside their own home. They are absolutely wrong in saying that residents are using Free of charge space for parking their own vehicles, outside their own homes.

3.  When the colonies were developed years ago, prices of plots were decided on the basis of the size of inner roads in that area. The posh localities had wide inner lanes and therefore cost of plots was on the higher side. The middle / upper middle colonies had a bit smaller roads and therefore cost of plots was lesser than the posh localities. Whereas, the lower colonies had narrow lanes, and hence the cost of plots was also on the lower side.

4.  Now after 40 – 50 years, if Govt says that these colonies are using the public land Free of cost, THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY WRONG, as we have already paid the price of such inner lanes via the purchase price of our residential plots. Do you think that developers of these colonies were that much fool to offer inner lanes free of cost, causing huge losses.

5.  Moreover, there is no traffic in the inner lanes, except in the commercial areas, and no one is degrading the pedestrian environment in any way. Instead, it’s the policies of the Governments that degrade everything to levy a charge later on.

6.  Sometime Emergency vehicles face some problem while entering the inner lane, and it must be given a serious thought that how Govt can purchase such emergency vehicles that can easily enter the narrow inner lanes. But how do they think that by charging the parking charges, way for the emergency vehicles will be opened automatically ?

7.  Instead of restricting the sale of new vehicles in Delhi, Govt is now eying to earn more by way of HUGE PARKING Charges on all the vehicles parked by residents, outside their home.

8. The problem has erupted as  Govt has not formed any  vehicular policy for the sale and purchase of Vehicles. Everyone is free to buy any number of vehicles as Govt is GETTING HUGE SUMS BY WAY OF VAT, EXCISE, ROAD TAX,  SERVICE TAX and, GST NOW of 28% and that too after paying Income Tax. Why don’t they attach the vehicles with the Pan Card to check and control the sales of vehicles ?

9.  A typical vehicle stays parked 95 per cent of the time. A 2006 study by the Central Road Research Institute in New Delhi estimate that of the 8,760 hours in a year, an average car’s steering time is only 400 hours. This means it is driven for only about an hour a day. In Delhi this may be 3 to 4 hours a day. It clearly means that while parked at home, these vehicles for the 95% of time are not contributing to any Congestion or pollution.

Therefore, Govt must concentrate on the 5% time of these vehicles while they are either congesting the roads or polluting the environment and hence must levy hefty charges and penalties so that residents are forced to leave them in the parking itself.

It will automatically discourage the sale of new vehicles, though Govt may be against this policy as it will impact its own kitty. 

Therefore we are absolutely against the imposition of any parking charges from the residents, for the parked vehicles outside their home as it will lead to unnecessary harassment and chaos.

Thanks & with best regards,
