NUM­BER OF HOME­LESS PEO­PLE IN­CREASES

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

Even as the num­ber of home­less peo­ple in Navi Mumbai is in­creas­ing day by day, the NMMC has not con­ducted any re­cent sur­vey to know the real num­ber of them.

The NMMC does not have any guide­lines for pro­vid­ing a place in their night shel­ter. Peo­ple come and stay there as long as they want. No one is thrown out un­less in­mates leave on their own.

As the rules and reg­u­la­tions for ver­i­fy­ing the back­ground of the in­mates are not so strict, it could also be a threat to the law and or­der sit­u­a­tions in the city.

Apart from bed and clean wa­ter, the in­mates are also pro­vided with locker fa­cil­ity to keep their be­long­ings.

Be­cause of mi­gra­tion from the droughtaf­fected ar­eas, child-beg­ging cases have in­creased in Navi Mumbai. The civic body does not have any plan to open any day care cen­tre for such chil­dren.
