क्या उदयपुर की इमारतें सूरत जैसे अग्निकांड का इंतज़ार कर रही हैं?

पिछले दिनों सूरत में लापरवाही और गैर ज़िम्मेदारी के चलते महाभयंकर अग्नि काण्ड हुआ जिसके चलते 22 बच्चो कि जान चली गयी। “पर ये तो सूरत में हुआ न! उदयपुर में क्या हुआ? कुछ नहीं! तो ध्यान देने की क्या ज़रूरत! नहीं?”

फिर अभी पिछले हफ्ते शहर में एम बी हॉस्पिटल रोड स्थित अलंकार प्लाज़ा बिल्डिंग में किराए पर संचालित मेडिसेंटर लैब के प्रथम तल पर गुरूवार तड़के 6 बजे आग लग गयी। आग का कारण शार्ट- सर्किट बताया गया है। करीब एक घंटे का समय और 7 दमकल गाड़ियां लगीं  आग पर पूरी तरह काबू पाने में। सुबह लैब बंद होने की वजह से जनहानी की कोई खबर नहीं है। पास ही पेट्रोल पंप होने के कारण दमकल विभाग ने एहतियात के तौर पर चार अतिरिक्त गाड़ियों का इंतज़ाम करवाया। शायद अकल्पनीय है कि अगर आग का पेट्रोल पंप की तरफ बढ़ना होता तो कितना बड़ा हादसा हो सकता था!

सूरत के भीषण अग्निकांड के बाद प्रशासन द्वारा सुध संभालते- संभालते भी शहर में हादसा हो ही गया। इस हादसे से पर तो बिना किसी हताहतों के काबू पा लिया गया पर क्या हर बार ऐसा होगा? उसकी ज़िम्मेदारी कौन लेगा? जब इस आग कि गर्मी प्रशासन तक पहुंची तब प्रशासन कि नींद खुली और पिछले दिनों इसी सुध के चलते शहर में शुक्रवार को शास्त्री सर्किल स्थित  विशाल मेगा मार्ट और शनिवार को सुखाड़िया सर्किल स्तिथ बिग बाज़ार को फायर फाइटिंग सिस्टम न होने और कुछ और भी सुरक्षा कारणों के चलते सीज़ कर लिया गया। अग्निशमन अधिकारी जलज घसिया का कहना है कि दोनों इमारतों के संचालकों को तीन बार नोटिस जारी किया गया था जिनके चलते उचित कदम उठाना तो दूर, उनका जवाब तक नहीं दिया गया। और वही हुआ 338 में से उन 282 नोटिस का भी ,जो नगर निगम ने शहर भर में भवनों का निरीक्षण  करके भेजे थे। शोध करके यह भी सामने आया कि 155 इमारतें हैं, जो नगर विकास प्रन्यास के अधीन आती हैं और जिनमें फायर फाइटिंग सिस्टम का अभाव है। इनकी सूची यूआईटी को भेज दी गयी थी परन्तु उनके द्वारा किसी भी प्रकार कि कार्यवाही नहीं की गयी है।

प्रशासन कि काबिलियत पर किसी को शक नहीं पर 2019 में जहाँ तकनीक आसमान छू रही है, क्या हम सिर्फ सेफ्टी सिस्टम जैसी आवश्यकताओं की वजह से सैकड़ो जानें दाव पर लगा सकते हैं ? हम जानते हैं  कि बिग बाज़ार और विशाल मेगा मार्ट जैसे नामचीन ब्रांड और इनकी ईमारतों में इतना सामान और भीड़ होती है एक बार अगर अग्निकांड जैसा कभी कुछ हो भी जाए तो जनहानि आग से ज़्यादा भगदड़ से होगी। और अगर नामचीन इमारतों का यह हाल है तो बाकी ईमारतों से हम क्या उम्मीद रखें? अब देखना यह है कि अब जो यह नींद खुली है, जो कार्यवाही चली है, जो फाइल बनी है, यह कितने दिन तक चलता है और इसके फलस्वरूप उदयपुर कितना “स्मार्ट” बनता है।

People Are Against the Food Court Construction at Swaroop Sagar in Udaipur

The new food court beside Swaroop Sagar is facing quite a negative response. Jheel Sanrakshan Samiti working for the welfare of lakes in Udaipur has submitted a letter to the Minister for Urban Development, Shanti Dhariwal, asking him to stop the cantilever projection in Swaroop Sagar lake for creating a food court.

The Jheel Sanrakshan Samiti is worried about the contamination of the lake post opening of the food court by the lake. They are concerned about the degree of damage that the lake would face due to the littering and trash discarded by the people and the food stalls at the food court.

According to the Jheel Sanrakshan Samiti, Udaipur Municipal Corporation is constructing the food court without getting the required approval from the Lake Development Authority.

“The construction in question would adversely affect the existing heritage value and serenity of Pichhola- Swaroopsagar Lake and cause detrimental effects on the eco-health of the lake. It will prove to be fatal for the avian and aquatic life of the lakes and eco-sensitive surrounding areas” the letter read.

Udaipur becomes the second most favourite travel destination across the country!

Too much crowd on the city streets and congestion on the road? Well, we bet that would increase every year. Udaipur is indeed a sought after destination for people across the country as well as in the whole world. Diwali vacations have just ended and we can still spot many tourists on the streets.

Source: UdaipurTimes

A recent report from the famous travel website MakeMyTrip.com cites that with Goa topping the charts, Udaipur had the second highest domestic travel bookings in the country at the time of the festive Diwali season. And not only this, stats show that the city of lakes has witnessed an upsurge of 56 percent in travel bookings across the nation.

The same number or more would be repeated at the time of Christmas and New Year, hopefully. Undoubtedly, day by day Udaipur is becoming the ‘hot spot’ for holiday getaways or one of the most favourite travel destination across the country.

Techno India NJR Students Win Rs.1 lac Prize

Techno NJR students bring prestige to Udaipur once again by winning the 1st Runner-Up prize of Rs. 1 lakh in #OpenGovDataHack, a national level competition held in New Delhi on 31st October. The event was organized by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Law & Justice.

The prize to Techno NJR team was given by Hon’ble minister Sh. Ravi Shanker Prasad. First prize was won by the team from VIT and second Prize by Techno NJR team and third by IIT, Patna.

Techno NJR team consisting of Tathagat, Vedant, Bhavya, Mohit & Jeevika and mentored by Dr. Jitendra Shreemali created Datacop Platform using data available with National Crime Records Bureau.

What is Datacop Platform:

The Datacop platform is an attempt to empower the vulnerable sections of society through the use of technology. With increased attention on crimes against women, the team has presented a technology solution to prevent major crimes against women. Going forward this system can be used to prevent all weaker sections of the society, be these, women, older generation or children.

The analysis shows that coastal states have consistently witnessed the highest cases of immoral trafficking of women. Further, correlation analysis identifies the filling up of women SI equivalent rank vacancies as the best solution to the problem since the correlation between both these factors is close to 80%. Similarly, analysis of rape data provides insights into the profile of likely rapists as well as their family background.

As Udaipur is among the select smart cities, this can help make Udaipur a safer place for tourists as well as the residents. Successful deployment at Udaipur would enable other leading cities in the country to consider this as a potential solution to their crime-related challenges.

Now You Can Zip-line in Udaipur @Rs200!

Udaipur has so much to give to its visitors and residents!!! On 3rd August 2018, Home Minister Kataria inaugurated the “Valley of Flowers” at Chirwa, in Udaipur. 80 hectares of the Ghat section is now covered with different flowering plants sanctioned by the Ministry of Forest and Environment under the CAMPA Yojana. For all those who love that adrenaline rush can enjoy the newly constructed Zip-line in the same area.

It is quite evident that Udaipur has seen a lot of development in tourism in the recent times and ziplining is one of them. After the formation of the four-lane and Chirwa tunnel on the Udaipur-Nathdwara highway, the route of the Chirwa ‘Ghata’ was less traveled.  The route once gave the best view of the dense thicket spreading from Amberi to Chirwa. The locals, as well as tourists, were deprived of this beautiful view of the forest post construction of the tunnel.

This valley has been developed by the forest department in the form of a flowering valley, which has been the entrance of Udaipur for years. Here, you can watch birds and animals in their natural habitats from the respective viewing points, which are created with flowering plants on either side of the serpentine road.

The Home Minister has reportedly spoken about making the place a center of interest for activities like Horse Safari, study centers, floriculture and conservation of various species. Carving figures on rocks will also be seen.  Nature trails, cycling rides, cafeteria, nature view points at the four places, Interpretation Center will also be deployed.

Also, apparently there will be golf carts in the area too for sightseeing until then visitors will have to walk and enjoy the beauteous nature.

Entry fee for adults will be available at 30 rupees for adults, Rs 10 for students, 100 rupees for foreign nationals, Rs. 50 for video capturing, Video camera will be charged at Rs. 100, Hill cycle 50 rupees per hour and Zip line will be charged at Rs. 200.
