assessment study before deciding to redevelop a project (Representational Image) Related News THE Bombay High Court on Friday vacated its stay on raising the Floor Space Index (FSI) in Navi Mumbai Thane and Mumbai suburban areas for projects under the cluster redevelopment scheme The court vacated the stay after the state government submitted an impact assessment report that was in favour of the scheme The stay was granted in September 2014 by a division bench of the Bombay High Court after a petition was filed by a resident of Thane Dattatray Dhond stating that the government had failed to conduct an impact assessment study before deciding to redevelop a project and that it would adversely affect the development of the area The government had filed an application seeking the stay to be vacated Government Pleader Abhinandan Vagyani submitted the impact assessment report by the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation and the CIDCO in support of the scheme and said that there would not be any adverse impact on the city’s development as a result of the scheme Vagyani also told the court that because of the stay several people living in old and dilapidated buildings were not able to carry out reconstruction on their own and therefore it was important for the state government to develop these structures A division bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice N M Jamdar while vacating the stay said: “The government has obtained the impact assessment report which supports the cluster development Therefore the stay can be vacated and the government can go ahead with the proposal” In 2014 the state government had proposed to increase the FSI to four which would allow private developers to redevelop slums dilapidated structures and old buildings into multi-storeyed buildings The proposal said that the increased FSI was essential as it would allow private developers to recover the cost of rehabilitation of existing inhabitants The proposal was stayed after the court took into account the petitioner’s contention that no impact assessment was carried out by the state The court has allowed the state government to issue fresh notifications The bench also stated that the petitioners have the liberty to challenge the notification if they do not find the impact assessment study satisfactory The proposed scheme that has been pending since 2014 will now lead to the redevelopment of slums dilapidated and old buildings along with necessary infrastructure such as open spaces roads gardens and other amenities in large parts of the city For all the latest Mumbai

post-mortem on carcasses of 65 cows and calves found dead in a cattle pound in Rapar taluka of Kutch district on Sunday has concluded cyanide poisoning as the cause of death This is the second such incident in Kutch in about a year The incident took place at the Bakna Vid cattle pound of Shri Jivdaya Mandal popularly known as Rapar panjrapol located 7 km from Rapar town It is a trust running three cattle pounds in Rapar with around 8000 animals Cattle-herders noticed some cows falling unconscious around 730 pm Rajendra Kothari manager of the mandal on Tuesday said “After our caretakers complained of animals falling unconscious we rushed some veterinarians to the spot Unfortunately of 95 sick cows and calves we could save only 30” Rapar witnessed seven inch of rain within a few hours last Thursday and moderate rain continued over the next two days Earlier it was suspected that flooding of the pound due to the rain caused the incident but authorities denied it Shailesh Chaudhary a government veterinary officer in Rapar clarified “Post-mortem of the cows established that they died of cyanide poisoning which had accumulated in green fodder they were fed Saturday afternoon Cyanide content remains high in tender fodder and drinking water after consuming such fodder can prove fatal for the cattle However these deaths are not related to rain” Kothari said the millet fodder had come from nearby villages like Kakarva Adoi and others “We require around 10 truck-load of fodder every day All the animals were given the green fodder on Saturday But veterinarians told us that drinking water after consuming cyanide-affected fodder could prove fatal So the cows which drank water after consuming millet stalks fell sick and 65 of them died” he said Parts of the arid Kutch district were declared partially scarcity-hit and the state government has been providing relief in form of hay distributed at token rates Hamir Vaghela in-charge mamlatdar of Rapar said “Fodder is
