San­tacruz-Chem­bur Link Road fails to ease traf­fic

Accommodation Times - - .. Current Affairs.. -

The much waited and longde­lay San­tacruz-Chem­bur Link Road (SCLR) which was con­structed with an aim to ease the trav­el­ling from east­ern to western sub­urbs, but the link road failed to achieve the tar­get. Mo­torists are find­ing it very dif­fi­cult to find their ways due to lack of sign­boards on the road and also to many bumpers on are caus­ing un­smooth ride, all this has re­sulted into traf­fic jam.

The SCLR was ready af­ter a much de-lay and with an ex­pense of Rs. 428 crore, but it failed to sat­isfy the needs of the com­muters. Mo­torists were greatly in­con­ve­nienced by the lack of sign­boards and bumper- to­bumper traf­fic jams on this stretch, which dis­rupted their jour­ney. Mo­torists com­ing from south Mum­bai via the East­ern Ex­press High­way (EEH) were strug­gling to lo­cate the SCLR due to miss­ing sig­nage and had to rely on lo­cals and traf­fic cops for di­rec­tions.

To help the com­muters, traf­fic con­sta­bles were set on du­ties by the traf­fic depart­ment at im­por­tant junc­tions to guide mo­torists to­wards SCLR. But, this did not worked out, mo­torists find it dif­fi­cult to halt to read the il­leg­i­ble sign­boards and then turn for Ti­lak Na­gar and Nehru Na­gar, or take the up­per deck that di­rectly opens at Kurla junc­tion and con­nects to CST Road, which fi­nally leads to the WEH at San­tacruz.

The MMRDA is claim­ing that it is the civic author­ity’s re­spon­si­bil­ity, but as the plan­ning and im­ple­ment­ing author­ity, it was un­equiv­o­cally their job to clear the bot­tle­necks, a task that they mis­er­able failed to per­form. Au­thor­i­ties, how­ever, said, it was still early days and the traf­fic would take about a cou­ple of weeks to sta­bilise on this road.

For de­ter­min­ing above per­cent­age, builder needs to fur­nish cer­tifi­cate from lo­cal or plan­ning author­ity cer­ti­fy­ing the date of com­ple­tion of stages re­ferred above and where such author­ity does not have a pro­ce­dure for pro­vid­ing such cer­tifi­cate then such cer­tifi­cate from a reg­is­tered RCC con­sul­tant.

If dealer fails to es­tab­lish the stage dur­ing which the agree­ment with pur­chaser is en­tered, then the en­tire value of goods as de­ter­mined af­ter de­duc­tion of land and la­bor from the value of the en­tire con­tract, shall be tax­able. For mak­ing cal­cu­la­tion as per above new pro­ce­dure, re­vise re­turns can be filed up to 30th April, 2014.
