Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai
In the emerging city of Panvel, infrastructure development holds a paramount importance. But various impediments have been detected from the area. Mismanagement of the municipality is the source of many such problems. There isno such problem that can’t be solved by careful operation of necessary actions. But according to the language of public, authorities are delaying some improvementswithout any reasons.
Hoardings, flex boards and posters are widely used in the city for various purposes. Though advertising is the prime goal, many such boards tell us about cultural activities and organizations in the city. But over use of hoardings and flex boards have emerged as a villain in the emerging city. Flex boards fixed in important areas create unwanted traffic and disturbs the movement of city.
Streets near to Shivaji Chowk has become a victim of hoardings, as it blocked the foot paths and make people walk on roads. Thus the narrow roads in Panvel become congested. Hoardings are also placed in roads and junction, which are dangerous for moving vehicles. Boards placed on posts in the middle of roads sometimes turn risky, as it often touches moving vehicles. Tapal Naka, Shivaji road and most of the Old Panvel are suffering due to this.
Hoardings play a crucial role in the culture of our city. It has become as an easy method for publicity and advertising. We came to know about cultural, political and social activities that happening in and around our city through these boards. But to put such boards in public places needs authorized permission of concerned (bandi-kam (Marathi) translate it) department in the Municipality. Only after such permission one can publicize these boards. Time limits for the boards are also mentioned in the permission.
Though enough procedures are done on papers, rules and regulations on these issues are obeyed rarely. Many hoardings remain in public, even after the allotted time. Authorities are also not taking much interest in changing this scenario. Many such boards are placed in the middle of the footpath and blocks pedestrians, as it can be more eye catchy. Minor accidents have also been reported in many areas of Panvel, as old hoardings broken down and fallen on moving vehicles.
Asharf, a resident of Panvel, “our areas are obsessed with hoardings and advertising posters. It has created a huge problem, as it affects even those walking in the streets. The aluminum wires used to tie those boards are risky, as it hurts the pedestrians sometimes.”
Varghese Chacko, a resident of Panvel, said “authorities should take action to remove those unwanted posters and boards from the important areas such as junctions, circles, foot paths and in middle of road. The municipality should also punish those disobey the rules.”
City (abhiyanth-Marathi, translate it) and head of the department Maosaheb Patil, said the department is running according to the rules and regulations. Hoardingsare important for our city, as it serves many needs of our city. Actions will be taken against any illegal activities. Hoardings will not be allowed in those important areas.”
