Sheth gone, world of Raj Travels sinks Phone lines snapped, bookings discontinued even as creditors queue up for recovery

Sheth gone, world of Raj Travels sinks
Phone lines snapped, bookings discontinued even as creditors queue up for recovery

Nearly a month after Lalit Sheth of Raj Tours committed suicide by jumping off the Bandra-Worli Sea Link on August 1, the travel business that he left behind is sinking.
All the telephone lines have been disconnected, all new bookings have been discontinued and customers who paid up but never fulfilled their travel plans are awaiting their refund. Not only that, funds to make payments are hard to come by–be it to customers or creditors.
While the family put up a brave front after Sheth’s death, that debts were not the reason for him to give up his life, going by the mess the Raj Travels is in, the situation seems insurmountable. The company, which registered a turnover of Rs300 crore until a few years ago, finds that all revenue streams have dried up and creditors are queuing up to recover their money.
“We have been told by the management to discontinue all fresh bookings till further notice,” said an employee of the Raj Tours, adding that while things were going downhill even when Sheth was alive, business has come to a standstill ever since he passed away. “We are not even getting our salaries on time, and those who are finding a job elsewhere are leaving and going,” the employee said.
It’s not just the head-office at Chowpaty that wears a deserted look, but times are bleak even at the company’s suburban offices in Andheri, Kandivli and Vashi. “We are hoping for a revival,” said an attendant at the Vashi franchisee. But the road to revival is a long one for Sheth’s successors. “Right from the loans due to the institutional and private lenders, to the payments due to the trade and customers, it can all be too much for anyone to pay when there is no revenue and no scope for bouncing back,” said a leading Fort-based travel operator, adding that another big blow is round the corner for Raj Tours when IATA’s payment schedule switches to weekly mode from October. “Why only Raj, many other travel companies that are riding on the line of credit will go under once the new IATA rule comes into effect,” the operator said.
Though the quantum of outstanding is not clear, the amount runs into tens of crores and it is likely that the institutional lenders will seek the legal course to recover their money. “In case the loan has been given to the company, the creditors can approach the high court to appoint an official liquidator, who will take over the company’s operations,” said advocate Aditya Chitale, adding that in case the loan has been given to a partnership or a proprietorship, then the personal assets of the borrower can be liquidated to repay the loans.
“Even if the borrower has pledged his personal property as guarantee for the company loan, the property can be liquidated,” said Chitale. Though Sheth’s office is on rented premises, he has a sprawling flat at chowpatty with a market value upwards of Rs20 crore.

Riot effect: Another top cop shifted

Riot effect: Another top cop shifted

After the promotion of former Mumbai police chief Arup Patnaik in the aftermath of the Azad Maidan riot, joint commissioner of police (law and order), Rajnish Seth was the second person to be shuffled.
He was transferred to Force One as its inspector general on Wednesday.
The decision to transfer Seth was taken in the annual meeting between senior police officers, chief minister Prithviraj Chavan and home minister RR Patil.
According to a senior police officer, Seth was aware that he would be transferred after the incident. “After Patnaik's promotion, Seth was given a feeler that he, too, would be transferred. In the meeting, Seth was told that the police and state government had to face a lot of criticism because of the August 11 incident,” said the officer.
Patnaik had been promoted last week as the managing director of Maharashtra State Security Corporation, following criticism about police inaction during the violence.
On August 11, Raza Academy and groups belonging to the Barelvi sect organised a rally at Azad Maidan to denounce violence against Muslims in Myanmar and Assam. But the rally was disturbed by a group of men who went on the rampage, torching OB vans, damaging vehicles, looting police weapons and molesting policewomen. Two people were killed while several, including 44 policemen, were injured.
Sadanand Date, who was heading the Force One, has now been made the joint commissioner of police (law and order). Javed Ahmed, who was the additional director general (establishment) has now been made the additional director general (law and order), as the post was vacant after Satyapal Singh was made the new police chief.
On the first day of the annual meeting, Chavan and Patil were given presentations on several ongoing crucial cases.
Joint commissioner of police (crime) Himanshu Roy gave a presentation on the arrested 26/11 handler, Syed Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal.

Get crash course on civic sense SoBo colleges spread awareness

Get crash course on civic sense
SoBo colleges spread awareness

If south Mumbai looks clean, green and beautiful, the credit primarily goes to its proactive citizens' groups. They fight tooth and nail to ensure their rights of open spaces, clean roads, water, sewage and other facilities. Now, they want the youth to take their agenda forward.
The Nariman Point-Churchgate Citizens' Association (NPCCA) launched a short-term course on civic awareness and responsibility for students in south Mumbai colleges. With a batch of 50 from three law colleges, the first-of-its-kind course in India, starts on Saturday at KC Law College.
The three-month course is being offered for free. Emphasising on the civic needs of south Mumbai, it will include both theory and field work. Classes will be held on weekends and holidays. NGO Global Vision India Foundation has also been roped in for this initiative. The Sir Dorabji Tata Trust will bear the educational cost.
NPCCA member BN Makhija said, "We wanted a course that would make youngsters responsible and aware of civic issues as well."
The curriculum has been designed by NPCCA residents and activists in consultation with the KC Law College.
According to principal Ashok Yende, this includes knowledge of constitutional rights, citizens' duties, sections of the IPC, RTI Act, Consumer Protection Act , Environment Act, Fisheries Act, Noise Pollution Rules, Water Act, Shore Nuisance Act, etc.
The course will also show students how to file an FIR, a PIL, preserve the rights of women, work with the BMC for garbage disposal, repair roads, clean water, make areas hawker- and noise-free,etc . Field work involves working with NGOs, organising awareness programmes, street plays, etc. Noted activists are to address students as guest lecturers. Talks with other colleges to start this course are also on.
Industrialist and head of NGO Priyadarshni Academy Nanik Rupani was given the task of streamlining the initiative.
Welcoming the move, RTI activist Bhaskar Prabhu said: "We have 227 corporators in the city each with an average of 2.25 sq km to look after. If we get that many activists, the city is bound to improve a lot. However, it is yet to be seen how effective is course really is."
He suggested that the course include social audits.

'VAT on flats won't be rolled back' There will be no rollback of value-added tax (VAT) on the flats sold between June 2006 and March 2010 and buyers will have to bear the burnt for the rest of the state, reiterates Maharashtra finance minister Ajit Pawar in an exclusive interview

'VAT on flats won't be rolled back'
There will be no rollback of value-added tax (VAT) on the flats sold between June 2006 and March 2010 and buyers will have to bear the burnt for the rest of the state, reiterates Maharashtra finance minister Ajit Pawar in an exclusive interview

There has been hue and cry among the flat buyers because they have to shell out a huge amount towards the 5% VAT levied by the state government?
The issue is six years old. The buyers have voluntarily signed the agreement with builders. Now, it would be wrong to say they have been caught unawares about the tax levied.
People should understand that there would be no rollback on the VAT levied on the flats. Ever since I have taken over the reins of the finance department, no decision has been reverted by any of our departments.

But the builders have always been high-handed with the consumers. Now, too, they are making the consumers pay the VAT levied…
But it is very difficult to give second thought to the decision. We cannot run a government without levying taxes. And, the pinch is to those pockets who can afford to pay. After all, the government also has to spend a huge amount on the drought across the state, pay the hiked salaries after implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission and rising revenue expenditure. If the consumers are thinking that they alone are facing the burden, it's because of their ignorance. The bill was passed with due discussion six years ago.
I am sure many of the buyers were well aware about the Act. After all, we expect builders to pay the tax.
But you have been discussing the issue with the builders' association? Secondly, why is the gap of the rate between today’s VAT and the one levied earlier?
Yes, we have discussed the issue with the builders' organisations on several occasions. They demanded to reduce the tax and extend the deadline.
We thought the issue could be sorted out amicably, but the builders defied us and moved court. Now, we are bound to follow the Supreme Court order.
For the difference between the rate of VAT, the builders are to be blamed. They have kept the issue hanging for the last six years.

But the general sentiment is that the government is least bothered about the public. The consumers are helpless due to the scarcity of the housing stock…
It is not true that there is demand-supply gap in the real estate sector. Investors have blocked the stock and are manipulating the market.
There is a need to strictly implement the law that implies the builders to avail the small-sized houses. Builders cannot hold consumers to ransom.

What is the revenue projected from the VAT on the flats?
It is very difficult to quote a figure until the actual implementation. It may
range from Rs1,000 crore to Rs2,500 crore.

History never seemed more alive, topical DNA profiles some of city’s most outstanding college teachers in the run-up to Teachers’ Day. Today, meet Fleur D’Souza, professor and HOD, history, at St Xavier’s College

History never seemed more alive, topical
DNA profiles some of city’s most outstanding college teachers in the run-up to Teachers’ Day. Today, meet Fleur D’Souza, professor and HOD, history, at St Xavier’s College

Modesty could almost be Fleur D’Souza’s middle name. When DNA approached her to fix up a meeting with her, the professor and head of the department of history at St Xavier’s College, politely turned down the request. “Why me? There are so many good teachers in the college and the city? I am just doing my job. Also, I don’t think I am a good teacher,” she argues.
She was won over after much persuasion.

D’Souza is an old hand at the college, having taught there for over three decades now (but she shied away from revealing her age). Her methods of teaching, though, are anything but old.
Conscious of an arts course like history running the risk of being pigeonholed as boring and non-glamorous, D’Souza is constantly innovating in the classroom.
“She knows what students want and tries new things accordingly. Unlike other teachers, she never insists that we take down notes. Instead, she explains everything while giving outlines and asks us to independently research for notes,” says Devaki Dhulbhoya, a third-year BA student.
Recently, adds Dhulbhoya, she asked her students to put up a performance based on the My Lai Massacre of 1968 in Vietnam. How’s that for taking a leaf out of history books and livening up a class?
Students also gush about the film screenings, heritage walks and museum visits occasionally organised by D’Souza.
“Simplicity and friendliness are her best assets. Instead of lecturing us, she starts each class with a story and we enjoy it a lot. She also tries to make historical issues more topical by drawing an analogy with the present times,” explains Kaizeen Jehangir, another third-year student.
But her versatility is her trump card. “She keeps herself abreast of everything and is approachable. Anyone can meet her any time to discuss a topic. I remember couple of weeks ago, she skipped her lunch just to help us meet our deadline for submission of an assignment,” says Dhulbhoya.
Manuela Braganza, another BA student, admires her ability to click so well with students, “Even if she is busy, she never says no or tells us to come the next day. She asks us to wait for some time and tries to address our issues.”
Humble D’Souza, who is also an alumna of St Xavier’s College, insists that she is, in fact, learning from her students. “I am happy to have been paid for years for this awesome journey of practical learning,” she quips with a glint in her eyes.
She says the thought of pursuing another career had never crossed her mind. “I love teaching and I always wanted to be a teacher.”

Sena moves Bill to prevent Kasab from filing mercy plea

Sena moves Bill to prevent Kasab from filing mercy plea

Shiv Sena MP Bharatkumar Raut on Thursday moved a draft Constitution Amendment Bill in the Rajya Sabha to prevent Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, convicted in the 26/11 attacks, from filing a clemency petition before President Pranab Mukherjee.

Raut, who hails from Mumbai, argued, “There are adequate provisions in the Constitution to award the highest punishment to the accused after the Supreme Court has given its final verdict.”

The Shiv Sena, along with other political parties in the city, have demanded that the apex court’s verdict upholding the death penalty awarded to Kasab by the Bombay high court should immediately be acted on. The ruling Congress and Nationalist Congress Party combine is also on the same page.

Fearing that Kasab’s execution could be delayed due to a legal wrangle, Sena decided to take its plea to Parliament. The proposed amendment, which was moved in the Rajya Sabha, is as follows: “Nothing in sub-clause (c) of clause (1) shall be applicable in all cases in which Supreme Court of India has held any accused(s) guilty for waging war against India under Section 121, 121(a) and 122 of Indian Penal Code.”

Raut expressed the fear that Kasab may go the Afzal Guru way, who has not been executed even eight years after the SC upheld his death sentence for attacking Parliament in December 2001 since his mercy petition to the President is yet to be disposed of.

In the draft, the Sena MP said, “The acts of violence perpetuated by the above accused amount to waging [a] war against India and therefore, should not be considered within a normal parameter.”

He claimed that there is also a public consensus on Kasab’s immediate execution.

Mumbai University to build it big: A Rs.200cr int’l centre

MU to build it big: A `200cr int’l centre

The University of Mumbai is all set to build one of India’s biggest international convention centre on five acres of land in its Kalina campus.
The centre, which will have a capacity to accommodate 6,500 people, will take two-and-a-half years to be built at Rs200 crore.
The university officials have been working on the ambitious project for the last one year.
On Tuesday, vice-chancellor Rajan Welukar made a presentation of the project to the deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar. Higher and technical education minister Rajesh Tope was also present at the meeting.
Pawar has promised to give Rs100 crore for the centre.
The state-of-the-art centre will be built according to the green building concept. It will also have executive suites for delegates and will be used for state events.
The centre, covering 4 lakh sqft area, will have a plenary hall, board room, auditorium and meeting room.
“We have identified a five-acre land in the Kalina campus. We had invited design for the centre from globally acclaimed architects. After shortlisting four designs, we selected one and gave a presentation to the state government,” said a senior official from the university.
“The sprawling centre will have a multi-purpose hall. There will be a facility to hold a parallel meeting. We are aiming to finish the work within two-and-a-half years,” he added.
He added that the government would fund Rs100 crore and the rest would be raised through public contribution. “We will approach corporate houses through our alumni association. Asit Kotecha, an alumna, has donated Rs35 crore for the centre,” he said.
Shanmukhanada Hall in King’s circle, the city’s biggest auditorium, can seat only 2,703 people. The auditorium, where most political events and community gatherings are held, has a huge demand and there is a long list of people waiting to book the hall.

Do not mislead people, consumer court tells doctors

Do not mislead people, consumer court tells doctors

Doctors cannot advertise anything that would mislead a person into going for a treatment based merely on the doctor’s claim that he/she would be cured completely.
Such advertisements lead to unethical practice and doctors should be barred from doing so, the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission said recently.
The commission was hearing a case where a doctor from Dehradun had advertised that his laser surgery could correct visual acuity and therefore one could get rid of spectacles.
The complainant, a mechanical engineer who wanted to join the Indian Air
Force, underwent the laser surgery and his vision deteriorated.
Upholding a fine of Rs1 lakh on the doctor, the commission, presided by justice RC Jain and member Anupam Dasgupta, found the doctor and the hospital where the surgery was done “guilty of adopting unfair trade practice within the meaning of section 2 (1) (r ) of the Consumer Protection Act, 1986, as well as violating the Code of Ethics Regulations ( Regulation no.6.1) by publishing misleading advertisement”.

Quoting the Medical Council of India’s regulation that debars any doctor from publishing any advertising that would invite attention to him or to his professional position, skill, qualification, achievements, attainments, specialities, appointments, associations, affiliations or honours, the commission said, “Clearly the doctor violated the above mentioned regulation which by itself was unethical conduct and hence constitute deficiency in service.”

“The advertisement clearly held out a kind of guarantee ‘to get rid of spectacles and contact lenses’ and ‘to see the world at large without spectacles’. Such a proclamation was sufficient to allure unwary intended patients that their vision would be corrected to 6 /6 situation without the use of the spectacles and contact lenses.”

The commission also warned the doctor to forthwith withdraw any such advertisement in electronic, print or any other media and desist from doing so in future.

Welcoming the decision, Dr DR Rai, honourary secretary general of the Indian Medical Association, said, “I am very happy. I congratulate the consumer court...though I doubt that such advertisements will stop. We have been working for this for years, but the advertisements don’t stop because it involves revenue for the newspapers.”

Asaram Bapu’s chopper crash-lands

Asaram Bapu’s chopper crash-lands

Godhra/ New Delhi: Religious guru Asaram Bapu and four others had a miraculous escape when their helicopter crashed just ahead of landing at a local college in Godhra on Wednesday. They sustained minor injuries, police officials said.
“The chartered helicopter Asaram Bapu and his followers were traveling in developed a snag prior to landing at Godhra Science college and fell from a considerable height,” police officials said.
It fell on the ground after losing balance and the impact was so powerful that it lay tilted on the ground, they said.
The directorate general of civil aviation has launched an inquiry into the crash. “We have dispatched a team from Mumbai to Godhra to look into the reasons behind the crash landing,” a senior DGCA official said.

Attack made cops better equipped

Attack made cops better equipped

On the night of November 26, 2011, when 10 Pakistani gunmen attacked the city , the police were caught unawares. As the Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives rained bullets on Mumbaikars at Colaba, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Cama & Albless Hospital and Girgaum Chowpatty, 166 died and several others were and injured.
As the police were not trained to fight terror, specialised forces such as the marine commandos and National Security Guards (NSG) were called in from Delhi. As they took time to reach Mumbai, precious time and lives were lost.
“After the terror attacks, the state government took stock of the security system in the city and realised that the police were not equipped to take on a war-like situation,” said an officer from the director general of police’s office.
Following a series of meetings, ministers and senior police officers found chinks in the coastal security, lack of advanced weaponry and trained officers.
The 10 Pakistani terrorists had sailed to the city from Karachi, thus exposing the level of coastal security. Post-26/11, the Mumbai police introduced a dedicated marine wing, which coordinates with the Indian Coast Guard and Indian Navy to secure the waters. They also purchased Sealegs Amphibious boats and speed boats.
To counter the terrorists’ sophisticated weaponry, the police have equipped themselves with advanced weapons, including anti-materiel rifles and MP5 guns and trained their officers to be snipers.
The police also proposed installing closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras across the city. A team of state officials and city police also visited London to study how their CCTV control room functions.
The city police also set up special forces to combat terrorists. After 26/11, the central government played a crucial role in setting up an NSG base in Mumbai. While the Maharashtra Police set up its own Force One on the lines of NSG, the Mumbai Police created Quick Response Team (QRT) and Response 10.
“So, now if a 26/11-like situation arises, first the Response 10, comprising officials from the local police station, will engage with the terrorists until the QRT arrives. But if the situation still goes out of control, Force One and then NSG will be brought in,” said the officer.

Gunny sacks to give Ganpati a smooth ride Worried about damage to idols, mandals to use sacks, metal sheets to cover potholes

Gunny sacks to give Ganpati a smooth ride
Worried about damage to idols, mandals to use sacks, metal sheets to cover potholes

It’s certain to be a bumpy ride for Lord Ganesha when mandals start bringing in the idols in the next few days, thanks to the potholes dotting the roads. Hence, the Brihanmumbai Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav Samanvay Samiti has advised its mandals to keep gunny bags, metal strips or anything else they can think of to cover potholes temporarily and ensure balance and a comparatively smooth ride for the idols.
During the samiti’s meeting with civic officials on August 8, the panel, representing 10,300 mandals, had said there were 2,340 potholes on roads across the city. The BMC swung into action, but roads have largely remained uneven.
Samiti’s chief Naresh Dahibawkar said, “Devotees are sentimental about the idols’ well being. Even a little damage to an idol while travelling can hurt their feelings. That’s why we have been sending out messages to mandals to use such bags.”
Mandals whose idols are 18 feet and above in height take great care to ensure that they are welcomed and sent off safely. Of the total mandals, 6,500 are major, and 3,800 are smaller. Among these, 20-22 mandals have idols taller than 18 feet, while 320 have kept the height up to 18 feet. The samiti has been batting for restricting height of idols up to 18 feet, including base.
Recalling last year’s festival, Babu Patel, an office-bearer of Shri Balgopal Ganeshotsav Mandal in Grant Road, said, “We used gunny bags and strips of metal to ensure our idol stayed balanced on the trolley and suffered no damage en route to the mandal premises and also during the immersion journey.” He added that though the BMC repaired roads immediately when they complained, rains on Monday and Tuesday have forced them to take precautions again.
Civic officials have assured further action. “We have been taking action swiftly. In case of uneven roads, we will look into the grievances,” said G Agarwal, chief engineer, roads department.

How long can he be on death row?

How long can he be on death row?

With the Supreme Court upholding Ajmal Kasab’s death sentence, the crucial issue is whether the Maharashtra government and the Union government will show urgency in disposing of his plea for clemency and mercy petition should he exercise those options.
It has been argued that a convict facing the death sentence cannot legally be given two sentences — jail term while waiting for the execution and the execution as and when announced by the president. If, therefore, there is inordinate delay in execution, a condemned prisoner is entitled to approach the court to examine whether it is fair to allow the death sentence to be executed.
The apex court recently issued notices to the Centre and various state governments asking how long a death convict can legally and constitutionally wait for the gallows or share the jail barrack with others.
The president only acts on the advice of the Union cabinet under Article 72, a provision which does not specify any time limit. It has been argued that the absence of any specified maximum time limit for disposing of a mercy petition by the president raises a big question mark on the efficacy of the penalty. The home ministry’s policy
is to deal with them as per serial number.
During the last three decades, the shortest time taken in disposing of the mercy petition was 18 days (September 1992) while the longest was 11 years, 11 months and 18 days (February 2011).
