2017 4:28 am Construction in full swing at Gurgaon’s IFFCO Chowk Express photo by Abhinav Saha Related News For the last seven months IFFCO Chowk one of Gurgaon’s busiest junctions has been a mess of concrete dust and barricades which has thrown traffic out of gear led to congestion and snarls and left pedestrians with a confusing path to manoeuvre to reach the intersection The root of this chaos lies in the traffic improvement work underway in the area as part of a larger project to improve three major junctions in the city — the other two being Rajiv Chowk and the Signature Tower intersections which lie beyond IFFCO Chowk on National Highway 8 The Haryana government and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) together made a decision to undertake a three-tier traffic improvement plan last year months after heavy rain led to waterlogging and gridlocks in the city leaving commuters stranded on the roads for several hours The project is expected to cost Rs 100467 crore with the financial burden being shared by the state government which will bear 25 per cent of the cost and the NHAI which will pay for the rest Elaborate plans have been made for the work to be undertaken at each of the three junctions — to make them safe and more accessible to motorised and non-motorised transport as well as pedestrians Of the three however IFFCO Chowk is the intersection where the transformation is expected to be most noticeable once the work is finished with flyovers underpasses pedestrian subways and foot overbridges that could give people hope that the days of traffic snarls at the junction are behind them *** The changes at IFFCO Chowk will begin from the main highway itself where two loops will be constructed on both sides of the junction to facilitate elevated U-turns for vehicles While one four-lane unidirectional flyover will be built to allow traffic coming from HUDA City Centre and Mehrauli to take a U-turn and travel towards Delhi and Sukhrali another four-lane unidirectional flyover will be constructed to allow people coming from Sector 17 and Sukhrali to take a U-turn and travel towards Mehrauli and Jaipur In addition a third four-lane unidirectional flyover will be constructed in the service lane for commuters going from Delhi towards Jaipur to allow them a signal-free pass across the busy Mehrauli-Gurgaon road The solitary underpass at the junction meanwhile will be dug up across MG Road to provide a path for vehicles coming from the HUDA City Centre side and looking to take a right turn towards Mehrauli Apart from motorised transport plans have also been made keeping in mind the need for a “safe and stress-free commute” for those with non-motorised vehicles like cycles and carts as well as pedestrians who find themselves at risk each time they go through the junction “Tracks for non-motorised transport will be constructed all along the service road of the highway” said an official from Bloom Companies LLC the authority’s engineer on condition of anonymity “Three structures are also being constructed to make the lives of pedestrians easier namely one pedestrian subway and two foot overbridges with staircases and escalators” he said While the pedestrian subway will cut across MG Road and NH-8 the two foot overbridges will be made across MG road — one towards Sukhrali and the other in front of The Westin hotel *** Although the entire project — traffic improvement work at all three junctions — was originally meant to be completed in 30 months officials expect they will be able to finish the job done in 16 months “Fifty-five per cent of the project has already been completed and we expect we will finish all the work before the stipulated period of 30 months” said Ashok Sharma Project Director NHAI He added “Although the deadline given to us was May 30 2019 we expect the work will be completed by March 31 2018 — over a year earlier than planned” The pace at which construction is done and the ability of officials to complete the job however depends on the amount of time it takes to clear certain structures currently impeding the work four of which — two petrol pumps a crematorium and a 220KV high transmission line — are located at IFFCO Chowk According to officials the petrol pump on MG Road next to ABW Tower is having the most immediate impact on construction work “The petrol pump falls in the middle of the path of the right-turning underpass being constructed to take commuters coming from the HUDA City Centre side towards Mehrauli It is holding up construction Work on the underpass has stopped completely and cannot resume until the pump is removed” said the official from Bloom Companies LLC The petrol pump has to be removed by the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) “We have already applied to the Chief Administrative Officer for permission to remove the petrol pump We expect the approval any day now” said HUDA administrator Yashpal Yadav Officials said the 220 KV high-transmission line along the highway — on the side of vehicles travelling from Delhi towards Jaipur — is not affecting improvement work immediately but could prove to be the biggest impediment in the future and hold up work on the flyovers being built on NH-8 Clearing it will involve the removal of 12 electricity towers and shifting of the electricity line underground NHAI officials who spoke on condition of anonymity said that before the authority undertakes the work permission will have to be granted by the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited (HVPNL) “Even after permission is received it can take us between three and four months to complete the work” said the NHAI official Officials from the HVPNL maintained that the approval formalities are almost complete “The case has been sent to the headquarters and only the approval of the final authority is pending We expect this to come in early next week after which the process for moving the cables underground can commence” said Anil Yadav Superintending Engineer HVPNL The two other structures that lie in the path of the improvement work are in the process of being removed said officials “Another petrol pump on the highway near Sukhrali was obstructing the construction of the U-turns We have already provided an alternate site for it in Sector 31 and have completed the formalities for the same Only its shifting remains” said HUDA administrator Yashpal Yadav A crematorium believed to be hundreds of years old is being relocated to an alternate site in Sector 17 near Atul Kataria Chowk with the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) having started the process of relocation “The construction work at the new site is already underway and we expect it will be completed in another 10-15 days” said an MCG official who did not wish to be named *** Although none of the structures being constructed at IFFCO Chowk are likely to be completed in the coming months two structures at the other junctions are set to be inaugurated today a day ahead of Independence Day Confirming this an official from Bloom Companies LLC said “We have completed load testing on the four-lane bidirectional Maharana Pratap Chowk flyover being made at Signature Tower to facilitate an easy pass through traffic in either direction This will be inaugurated on August 14 along with the two-lane right-turning underpass at Rajiv Chowk meant to allow smooth travel from the direction of Medanta-The Medicity towards Delhi” According to officials both structures will be inaugurated by Union Minister Nitin Gadkari At IFFCO Chowk meanwhile as the files for approvals to remove obstructions circulate in various departments construction continues in full swing with each day bringing the city closer to

will continue till the state pays Rs 606 crore additional subsidy every month Related News P Vaidyanathan Iyer: Politicians like Milind Deora are demanding a white paper on subsidy in power sector How is the subsidy distributed amongst the different consumer classes The cost of power is Rs 330 per unit But the supply cost works to Rs 631 per unit If we were to supply power on a secular principle the cost will Rs 631 for all sectors However we apply non-secular tariff to help some sectors like agriculture The highest tariff is on hoardings (Rs 14 per unit) followed by commercial (Rs 9-10) industries (Rs 8- 9) We recover Rs 6300 crore extra from industries Rs 1900 crore from commercial and Rs 1200 crore from railways and others to enable us to cross subsidise other sectors Agriculture sector is cross-subsidized to the tune of Rs 6800 crore and domestic consumers who use less than 300 units to Rs 1800 crore Shubhangi Khapre : Why is the tariff for industry higher in Maharashtra compared with neighbouring Chhattisgarh Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat Power generation through coal in Maharashtra is as high as 85 per cent whereas in Karnataka it is 66 per cent through coal and 20 per cent hydel Maharashtra has just 1 per cent hydel In Chhatisgarh power is 93 per cent coal based but they are sitting on mines We have to import coal from Orissa transport alone adding 80 paise per unit Western Coal Limited mines are almost dying Another factor which works is booking timing that has given Gujarat a huge advantage as it gets power at less than Rs 350 We tied up long term power only after 2005 I must candidly admit that power tariff in Maharashtra is bound to remain higher than other states Shubhangi Khapre: Is it true that Maharashtra is losing industries to Gujarat where tariffs are lower Just being power surplus or having lower power rates does not ensure conducive climate for industries A lot also depends on access to power In Maharashtra we have released 60 lakh connections of which 10 lakh connections have been added for the agriculture sector in the last five years Gujarat has released only two lakh connections for agriculture Maharashtra has a total of 37 lakh agricultural connections Gujarat has just 10 lakh As many as five lakh connections are in waiting since 1993 In our state the connections waiting is just 1-15 lakh The power tariff goes up as the number of agriculture connections increase as you invest Rs 70000 to Rs one lakh for every connection and recovery is low George Mathew: Following the decision to cut power tariff by 20 per cent has the state government committed about paying the compensation up front against this additional subsidy Section 65 of the Electricity Act 2003 very clearly reads that if the state government requires the grant of any subsidy to any consumer or class of consumers in the tariff determined by the state commission it has to pay in advance for the same P Vaidyanathan Iyer: Can the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission disapprove of the subsidy MERC can disapprove to the extent of the Rs1000 crore that has to come from the companies out of its surplus Out of the burden of Rs8400 crores that the state will have to bear due to the subsidy Rs1000 crores will have to be raised by the companies MERC can technically say no for the utilization of this Rs1000 crores Shubhangi Khapre: How long will the subsidy last The Narayan Rane committee report says 10 months MSEDCL can provide power at subsidised rates till the government continues to pay us Rs 606 crore per month Sandeep Ashar: Should we not look at giving subsidy directly to the consumer For giving a direct subsidy the government will need everyone to have an Aadhar card even as the Supreme Court has said that absence of Aadhar card cannot be a ground for denying anyone subsidy P Vaidyanathan Iyer: Does MSEDCL have any problem with this type of subsidy mechanism MSEDCL is revenue neutral Till the government continues to give subsidy MSEDCL has no problem The state gives us Rs 3 500 crore for agriculture subsidy and Rs 1100 core for subsidy to powerlooms Shubhangi Khapre: There is much debate on agricultural pumps There is allegation that you are hiding your losses in agricultre and showing that Maharashtra is a surplus power state The residential power consumption has gone up by 10 percent of 2011-12 to 2012-13 Commericial consumption has gone up by 11 per cent High tension industrial consumption has gone up by 1 per cent Agriculture has dropped by 3 per cent If MSEDCL had been manipulating it would have increased collections from the other three categories and not from agriculture Agriculture is easy to manipulate because half of the connections are not metered We have 14 000 feeders in Maharashtra of which 7 000 feeders for agriculture of which 5-7 per cent show negative losses Earlier we would declare losses on 150 divisions individually From May 2011 we decided to declare losses feeder-wise and loadshedding will also be carried out feeder-wise Information on how much power has been fed in to each of these feeders and how much money has been collected is available on the internet Shubhangi Khapre: How long will it take to implement power meters in agriculture sector Are there vested interests trying to block the power metering in Maharashtra If we decide it should not take more than three years Well there may be some vested interests Frankly speaking it wouldn’t be prudent to blame anybody The power companies including us should have carried out metering As an experimental basis we have taken up 1000 feeders Manasi Phadke: What are the distribution losses in Maharashtra Distribution and Commercial losses are down to 146 per cent down from 35 per cent in 2005-06 Distribution losses are those lost due to theft and technical faults and commercial losses depend on how much money I collect for every Rs 100 I raise as a bill Today the collection is up to 98 per cent in residential commerical and industrial categories In agriculture the collection is just 20-25 per cent Stuti Shukla: Do you think the power tariff is Mumbai is justified What do you expect to come out of the audit of BEST Reliance and Tata that supply power to Mumbai Private companies get their accounts audited through their own auditors and submit it to the regulator which is available publicly People can question tariffs in Mumbai when the account books are submitted to the MERC Even after the MERC fixes the tariff a citizen has the right to appeal against it through a judicial method right up to the Supreme Court Pallavi Ail: Are tariff cuts required in Mumbai I won’t comment on that I will only say that Mumbai tariffs are currently lower than Maharashtra tariffs Mumbai does not take any agriculture load People in Mumbai are I suppose economically better off than those from other parts of Maharashtra P Vaidyanathan Iyer: There were allegations of state buying short term power from private companies in a non-transparent way We purchase power through three routes-long-term power purchase through open tenders short-term power purchase through exchanges-which is as transperant as the share market- and short-term power purchase through bilateral which is also through tenders Not a single unit of power has been purchased without tendering P Vaidyanathan Iyer: There were allegations that the tenders were managed One cannot manage the exchange since it is publicly available on an IT platform that is examined by regulators Our long term bids are approved by the government of India and all regulators Power exchanges cannot be non-transperant because when I put in my buy-bid and when the seller puts in a sell-bid neither of us knows who put in how much and I do not know who my seller is So power-exchanges cannot be managed unless someone is snooping into the software Manasi Phadke: What is your opinion on the BEST undertaking cross-subsidizing its transport division through its power distribution division and levying a transport deficit recovery charge on its power consumers BEST transfers 10 per cent of its revenue Rs 4000 crore is the annual revenue requirement of that Rs 400 crore is transferred to its transport division It is coming from the higher users of power – people using air-conditioners and so on If your political philosophy is that the rich man must pay for the poor then taxes cross-subsidy is correct P Vaidyanathan Iyer: How many power projects are stuck in Maharashtra because of coal and legal issues Power projects of 2500 megawatts are ready They can run on imported coal But they are stuck fundamentally because there are no power purchase agreements Most of these plants came up in 2005 when power was selling at Rs 8 Now suddenly power prices have crashed to Rs 3 so it has become unviable to run with imported coal I have not issued any tender for purchasing power My power purchase at the exchange is also very limited Who do you sell all that power to Manasi Phadke: How has the state’s experience with power distribution franchises been It has been mixedThe distribution sector is completely licensed So we thought that one area where privatisation can be brought in is collection of dues We did bring it in There is a limited success but then again it is about people’s acceptance People are somehow more comfortable with the government in a monopoly sector Sandeep Ashar: If you want to lower tariffs for private distribution companies what route will the government have to take This question has to be answered together with the MERC Their account books are examined by the MERC not by us I really don’t know what their account books are all about Stuti Shukla: How strongly does Maharashtra need the Jaitapur power plant I am a big advocate of nuclear power Safety is a question of what is the percentage of error that can take place Even coal plants look safe but the kind of pollution and problems that they can create is terrible All that you can do is make it safer make it prudent The Jaitapur plant that is coming up is at a height so even with the highest tsunami water cannot inundate that plant It is being designed for an earthquake level of 9 plus Sandeep Ashar: Maharashtra had expected to be free of load shedding by 2012 end but many rural belts continue to face load shedding When will the state be free of load-shedding Being power surplus is not the issue The issue is that consumers are not paying If they start paying we can give then 24 hours power So the only way of penalising them for not paying is to hold back power supply These are areas where losses are more than 70 per cent However in May 2011 when we started there were only about 2000 to 2500 feeders that were free from load shedding Today that figure has gone up to more than 7000 feeders (Transcribed by stuti shukla & manasi phadke) For all the

on power bills observing that it was a policy decision and that courts “are not the substitute of the government” “We are not the substitute of the government There is a system of separation of power You cannot ask the courts to legislate and decide policy matters Likewise governments cannot decide cases” the bench comprising acting Chief Justice B D Ahmed and Justice Siddharth Mridul said The court however said lawyer Anurag Kejriwal a member of Lok Satta Party can make a representation to the office of Lt-Governor “This is a policy issue We cannot direct the government to frame policies You approach the government directly we are not interfering in policy matters” the court said “You have to knock on the doors of your political leaders to ask what they are doing” it said The PIL had argued that Delhi residents will face high electricity tariff after March 31 due to the expiry of the government subsidy for consumers using less than 400 units a month It had asked the court to ensure that underprivileged residents “do not have to bear unsubsidised tariff owing to a paralysis of governance and political posturing during the elections” “The subsidy provided by the previous governments to ease the burden on the underprivileged and provide lifeline electricity at economic prices is set to expire March 31” the plea said At present consumers are charged a subsidised rate of Rs 270 per unit for consuming less than 200 units in a month The actual cost per unit is Rs 390 For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Express News
