Be­la­pur MLA Manda Mha­tre met Cidco vice-chair­man and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Bhushan Ga­grani on Fri­day and dis­cussed is­sues re­lated to ed­u­ca­tion, women em­pow­er­ment and em­ploy­ment for project-af­fected peo­ple (PAP) in the no­dal and vil­lage ar­eas of Navi Mum­bai.

“I brought for­ward the plot is­sue for PAP ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions in vil­lage ar­eas. These in­cluded Vidya Utkarsh Man­dal’s Vidya P Rasarak High School in Be­la­pur, Kar­ave’s Dnyan­deep Seva Man­dal High School, Pra­gati Vidyalay in Vashi vil­lage among oth­ers,” Mha­tre said.

She also asked the City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (Cidco) to em­ploy PAP engi­neers, who have been work­ing for Cidco for five-six years, on per­ma­nent ba­sis through a spe­cial res­o­lu­tion. “The MD has agreed to it,” she added.

Dis­cus­sions were also held on changes to be made in the map for reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion of need-based houses.

Mha­tre re­it­er­ated her de­mand for giv­ing trans­fer of de­vel­op­ment rights (TDR) to PAP as 3.75% of the land had been used for in­fra­struc­ture.

In ad­di­tion, Mha­tre asked Cidco to con­struct Navi Mum­bai Bal Bha­van to pro­vide train­ing to women and to pro­mote the tal­ent of chil­dren. Among her other de­mands were floor space in­dex for Kuk­shet vil­lage, con­ser­va­tion of Kille Gaothan fort, wa­ter trans­port and marina project.

Mean­while, Mha­tre also met the Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion com­mis­sioner, Tukaram Munde, and dis­cussed the pos­si­bil­ity of in­creas­ing the ca­pac­ity of the Morbe dam.

“We also had a pos­i­tive dis­cus­sion on the beau­ti­fi­ca­tion drive of Di­wale and Vashi vil­lages, re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of slum dwellers and photo IDs for them,” she added.
