Anti encroachment drive carried by Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) with the help of Police Commissioner, Ankush Dhanvijay has not yielded great results. Anti encroachment squad carried out the drive and encroachers waited for everything to settle down so that they were back to their own place and business on the road.
Combined efforts of Police Chief Ankush Dhanvijay and sanjeev Jaiswal to make Nagpur city encroachment free have gone in vain due to lack of regular checks, encroachers are back to business at their own place. Many encroachers have again occupied footpaths and roads and are doing regular business. Hard work of NMC to clear these encroachments will go useless if all encroachers return and run their shops. Most of them are vegetable vendors and cloth sellers.
In a drive to provide parking space to Nagpurians Civic chief Sanjeev Jaiswal and Police Commissioner Ankush Dhanvijay have joined hands to take action against encroachers and provide parking space to people. Most of the time parking spaces are not available due to encroachments by daily vendors. These vendors block footpaths and parking space.
Demolition drive will be carried out by Nagpur Municipal Corporation on 30th March 2012. The encroachments on foot paths and illegal extensions on roads will be removed, illegal shops will also be demolished. It is a D-day for encroachers and a good news for pedestrians as the footpaths will be cleared and more space will be available for walking . This will also control Jaywalking and hence less accidents. After cases of accidents caused by Jaywalking finally NMC has woke up to clear foot paths for pedestrians.
