नगर निगम का ‘अतिक्रमण हटाओ’ अभियान फिर शुरू – इन जगहों पर होगी कार्यवाही

शहर की सड़कों को चौड़ा करने के लिए शुरू किया गया नगर निगम का ‘अतिक्रमण हटाओ’ अभियान 27 दिन बंद रहने के बाद बुधवार से फिर शुरू किया गया जो मार्च 5 तक चलेगा।

निगम की कार्यवाही के बाद, शहर की सड़कें खुली-खुली नज़र आ रही हैं।

अब तक कीमतराम पेसमूल तिराहे से मार्शल चाैराहे से धानमंडी से मुख्य मार्ग से हाेते हुए देहली गेट तक कार्रवाई हो चुकी है। निगम ने व्यापारियाें काे पाबंद करते हुए दुकानाें के बाहर सड़क के किनारे रखा सामान हटवाया गया। कई जगह अवैध रूप से पड़े 8 ठेले, 25 कैरेट, लाेहे की बेंच, काउंटर जब्त किये।

हालाँकि, धानमंडी क्षेत्र में व्यापारियाें के विराेध का सामना करना पड़ा।

गैरतलब है की निगम ने जब अभियान शुरू किया था तब बिना किसी सुचना के कार्यवाही करने का तय किया गया था। मगर वार्ड पार्षदों के विरोध के चलते निगम ने कार्रवाई राेक दी थी।

अब निगम राेड मैप तैयार कर कार्रवाई कर रहा है। यह रहेगा निगम का अतिक्रमण हटाने का प्लान:

Udaipur petrol pumps to remain closed on 23rd October

Rajasthan Petroleum Dealers Association, Udaipur, said that all the petrol pumps in the city will remain closed on October 23. This is to protest against the Government’s refusal to cut VAT on petrol and diesel.

There are around 140 petrol pumps in Udaipur. All of them will remain closed from 6.00 am onwards on October 23 and remain closed till 5.00 am on October 24, 2019. The statewide strike has been called after the government hiked the VAT on petroleum products by 4%. This hike has increased the fuel prices by 5 to 9 rupees. This price is higher than that of the neighbouring states, which has resulted in fall of revenue.

According to the Association, the situation has been presented to the government a number of times earlier, but there has been no positive response, due to which the dealers are forced to go on strike.

The dealers also informed that the strike is indefinite and may continue in the absence of any favourable measure. The Association presented a memo on this matter to the District Collector and District Revenue Officer.

Taj Lake Palace Udaipur Ranked 3rd Best Hotels in the World in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2019

When over six lakh readers from across the world submitted ratings and comments for selecting their favourite travel destinations and brands, Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur got the third position in the list of top 10 best hotels in the World.

The global luxury and lifestyle magazine, Condé Nast Traveler, has combined the annual readers’ surveys in the U.S. and the U.K. into one Global Readers’ Choice Awards List.

The palatial hotel, undoubtedly, deserves every bit of this position with its awe-inspiring architecture and hospitality. The guests are treated like royals from the very first moment they enter into the property. The location of the hotel further adds to its charisma giving a feeling of a walk into the history and an experience of unique service that brings the “Tajness” to life.

This all, of course, comes with a price. One night stay at this luxurious property of Udaipur can cost somewhere between INR 80,000 to 11 lacs, depending on the business season.

However, for general people, watching this beauty during the boat ride in Lake Pichola is another experience especially during evening and night, when the property is lit with mesmerizing lights.

The hotel rose to another level of fame after the famous James Bond movie, Octopussy, was shot here in 1984. Post that, many Bollywood movies made The Taj Lake Palace their shooting location.
