Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI - Sang­hami­tra Sen­gupta sang­hami­tra.sen­gupta@hin­dus­tan­times.com

The en­croach­ment depart­ment of the Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (NMMC) has ap­pealed to res­i­dents to give sug­ges­tions on how to make the city en­croach­ment-free.

The sug­ges­tion col­umn has been posted on the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion’s page (https://www. face­book.com/en­croach­ment­cel­lNMMC).

The civic body has asked res­i­dents to give sug­ges­tions on en­croach­ment is­sues in Navi Mum­bai. Res­i­dents have one week to post their sug­ges­tions.

The aim of the NMMC is to make the city en­croach­ment-free.

Of­fi­cials from the en­croach­ment depart­ment said the de­ci­sion was taken dur­ing a de­part­men­tal meet­ing on Tues­day.

It was stated that al­though res­i­dents have so­cial me­dia such as Face­book, toll-free What­sApp num­ber and the civic body web­site to post com­plaints on en­croach­ment, there is no plat­form where they can pro­vide sug­ges­tions.

“Res­i­dents are only post­ing com­plaints through var­i­ous so­cial me­dia plat­forms, but we have not been get­ting sug­ges­tions. Hence, we plan to seek sug­ges­tions for a week and com­pile them,” said Kailash Gaik­wad, as­sis­tant mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner, en­croach­ment depart­ment of the NMMC.
