Gear up for Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation

So 53 villages along with four municipal councils of Vasai, Navghar-Manickpur, Virar and Nallasopara from the Vasai-Virar subsection are all set to be merged as a Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation (VVMC).

Here is the notification: http://maharashtra.gov.in/data/gr/marathi/2009/07/03/20090707181255001.pdf

Formed nearly three years after it issued a notification announcing its intent to form such a civic body, the VVMC is the 23rd municipal corporation in Maharashtra.

Kishor Barde has been appointed as the first Municipal Commissioner of the VVMC. The VVMC is expected to be headquartered at Virar.

The state had issued a notification on July 3, 2009 that the municipal councils of Nallasopara, Virar, Navghar-Manickpur and Vasai along with 53 adjoining villages would be merged to create the new municipal corporation of Vasai-Virar.

Forty-nine of the 53 village panchayats that have unanimously objected to the merger, have now launched an agitation for their villages to be left alone. Regional leaders of Vasai-Virar cutting across all party lines have joined the campaign to save the villages, last remaining green belts of the Vasai, from urbanisation that is eminent after being merged into the municipal corporation.

  4. There is an unmarked speed beaker in Shree Krishna Housing Complex, just below the street lamp which is not be easily noticed. Many autos and bicycle and scooters hit the speed breaker and lose balance, even when they are moving fast as they are unaware of the speed breaker. This is dangerous as it can cause injury. It becomes unsafe especially when there is a power shut down. I have observed that speed breakers are being marked (painted with white stripes). May I please request yourselves to have this speed breaker marked as well. Thanking you in anticipation.
