Mumbai | Updated: November 2 2017 8:31 am Uddhav Thackeray’s new house in Bandra’s Kala Nagar.Dilip Kagada Top News Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has cleared the decks for the completion of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray’s dream project — a brand new home for his family in Bandra The CM-led Urban Development (UD) department has cleared decks for additional construction rights to be utilised for the project in the form of transferable development rights (TDR) In October 2016 Thackeray and his wife Rashmi had acquired rights for a 5200 square-ft property across their current residential address Matoshri in Bandra East’s Kalanagar Cooperative Housing Society The Thackerays have planned to construct an eight-storey building with a basement stilt and seven upper floors While the construction work had begun last November itself and has already progressed till the fifth floor the project hit a hurdle in September 2017 with the Shiv Sena-controlled Mumbai municipality turning down a proposal for utilisation of TDR to complete the remaining construction work The TDR is a development tool that allows land developers additional construction rights over and above the permissible floor space level in redevelopment projects It is usually generated when a developer or a land owner surrenders land reserved for public amenities in the form of buildable space or rehabilitates slum dwellers or project affected people free of cost The generated TDR can be traded privately for utilisation on another plot The civic body’s building proposals (BP) department had while declining the permission contended that the guidelines for the utilisation of the TDR which it had issued followed a notification issued by the UD on November 16 2016 disallowed such utilisation The UD notification had basically linked the TDR utilisation to the width of the road fronting a property It had restricted utilisation of TDR on plots abutting a road that were at least nine meters wide and were marked under the relevant provisions of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act Following which Civic Commissioner Ajoy Mehta had issued a circular on August 23 2016 that disallowed utilisation of the TDR on plots accessible from or fronting from private layout roads internal roads or the ones having right of way from a private access among others The restrictions were even made applicable in such cases where the roads were wider than nine meters According to the guidelines a property had to be directly accessible from a public street or a municipal road for availing the TDR benefit The trouble for the Thackerays was that though their plot is served by a 915 meter-wide road it is an internal road planned within the private layout of the Kalanagar Cooperative Housing Society Accordingly when the Thackerays submitted the plan for utilisation of TDR worth 2617 square ft which was purchased from a Lower Parel slum development in May the BP department turned down the request throwing the work for the construction of the upper floors in rough weather But the civic body itself left the door open for the Thackerays Official papers show that on September 16 Mehta wrote a letter to Principal Secretary (Urban Development-1) Dr Nitin Kareer seeking a clarification on whether the TDR could be permitted on such private roads too “The municipal corporation is receiving proposals for the utilisation of TDR for development/redevelopment of buildings abutting/fronting existing layout roads private roads right of ways existing non municipal roads and pre-merger layout roads among others In view of the above the Principal Secretary (Urban Development-1) is requested to issue a clarification regarding allowing the utilisation of TDR on roads other than municipal roads public roads” Sources confirmed that the matter was referred to the chief minister While ties between the Shiv Sena and the BJP have been frosty in recent times sources further confirmed that Fadnavis has approved a proposal clarifying that the “status of the roads” would not be insisted for TDR utilisation as long as it has been approved as a “road” by the municipality To avoid instances of FSI imbalance the proposal further mandates the execution of a registered agreement between the developer and the BP department prior to the permission of the utilisation of the TDR that the width of the road won’t be reduced by the private party under any circumstances Civic engineers had earlier raised some concerns regarding such FSI imbalance for the development/redevelopment of building abutting/fronting private roads and rights of ways Following Fadnavis’s approval the UD department is expected to soon communicate its stance to the civic body While senior civic officials said that they were yet to receive any formal communication in this regard they confirmed that there would be no hurdle to permit the additional construction rights for Thackeray’s construction work once it arrived Several other properties in suburban Mumbai are also set to benefit from the ruling Plans submitted by the Thackerays to the civic body show that they intend to build two triplex apartments in the new building On the basis that the TDR utilisation will now be permitted the Thackerays have planned to construct up to 10 500 square ft in all The family has roped in noted architecture firm Talati and Panthaky-Associated Private Limited to design the new building For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: AP | Published: November 3 2017 10:29 pm Jose Mourinho described Chelsea as a defensive team as it marched to the league title (Source: Reuters) Top News Games against Chelsea will always be special for Jose Mourinho for so long the darling of Stamford Bridge The latest trip to his former club on Sunday might just carry even more significance There are other factors in play for the Manchester United manager aside from his team’s need for three points to keep pace with rampant leader Manchester City in the Premier League There’s the desire for redemption after United’s humiliating 4-0 loss at Chelsea around this time last year There’s the gradual souring of his relationship with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte Also what better way to silence growing criticism of him and his team’s style of play than for an increasingly irritable Mourinho to finally lead United to an away win against a big rival “From the emotional point of view it’s just one more game” Mourinho has said in the build-up Few will take those comments seriously Going into a match that has proved to be one of the most contentious and incident-filled in English football in recent years the focus should really be on Chelsea and Conte The 3-0 loss to Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday was verging on the embarrassing because of the comical nature of Chelsea’s defending And with the team having already lost three times in 10 games of its Premier League title defense questions are being asked about Chelsea’s squad depth and ability to challenge on both domestic and European fronts this season “In this season we are struggling” Conte said Friday “We are struggling a lot We are facing a lot of important problems” Invariably though Mourinho manages to grab the spotlight on occasions like this Even in last season’s game the United coach made himself the focus of the post-match analysis when while shaking hands with Conte after the final whistle he rebuked his counterpart for his hysterical celebrations on the touchline “You don’t celebrate like that at 4-0” Italian TV reported Mourinho as saying “You can do it at 1-0 otherwise it’s humiliating for us” Since then Mourinho described Chelsea as a defensive team as it marched to the league title and appeared to aim a dig at Conte in particular this season when he criticized other managers for “crying” when their players were injured It must hurt Mourinho that his biggest loss as United manager came at the hands of Chelsea and at a stadium where was once treated like a king during two trophy-laden spells as manager (2004-07 and 2013-15) It is the only time Mourinho’s United has been beaten by more than two goals in his 18-month reign Including that 4-0 loss in October 2016 United has played six away league games against England’s so-called “Big Six” under Mourinho and failed to win any of them only scoring one goal in the process Critics say a team as expensively assembled as United’s should be doing more and playing more attractively “I know it’s a different way of analyzing things for this reason or that reason” Mourinho said “Similar performances for some clubs are magic are examples of brilliant tactics and amazing attitude of the players and for other teams the same kind of performance becomes conservative negative so many adjectives” Mourinho continues to defend his style and tactics in the big games saying his team deserved credit for beating Tottenham 1-0 last weekend in a period when Tottenham has beaten Liverpool 4-1 and Real Madrid 3-1 After the win against Tottenham Mourinho gave a “shush” gesture to the TV cameras _ a perceived retort to his critics In past years picking up a point at Stamford Bridge would be viewed as creditable but Man City’s fast start to this season is making people re-evaluate what a good result is Fourth-place Chelsea starts the game nine points behind City and second-place United is five points off the unbeaten and free-scoring leaders City hosts Arsenal hours before the Chelsea-United match starts “There is a big problem for all the teams fighting for the title and this is Manchester City” Conte said “If they continue in this way it will be very difficult to fight for the title” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Santosh Singh | Patna | Updated: June 8 2014 1:09 am Sources said Nitish in his talks with emissary of AICC president Sonia Gandhi discussed broad framework of “secular alliance” leading to the 2015 (Source: Express Archive) Related News Former Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar is leant to have spoken to an emissary of Congress president Sonia Gandhi to “strike an alliance” with the Congress The JD(U) has reportedly made the first move by offering nomination of one of the three vacant Rajya Sabha seats from the state to former Union minister and senior Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad The JD(U) think-thank believed that the “time of anti-Congressism was over” with overwhelming mandate for the NDA in recent Lok Sabha elections The party also believed that the Congress which got over eight per cent votes in last Lok Sabha elections in alliance with RJD would add to the JD(U) strength in the 2015 Assembly polls The JD(U) and Congress votes in this election match 24 per cent it had got in 2009 Lok Sabha election in alliance with BJP Although there are about half a dozen probables for the three Rajya Sabha seats vacated by Ram Vilas Paswan Ram Kripal Yadav and Rajiv Pratap Rudy JD(U) national president Sharad Yadav who lost the Madhepura Lok Sabha seat to RJD’s Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav is the obvious first choice JD(U) top brass is most likely to offer one seat to Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad in its bid to “wean away” Congress from RJD Although RJD chief Lalu Prasad has said that the RJD-Congress alliance was in tact most Congress leaders wanted to snap ties with Lalu and go alone or with Nitish in next Assembly polls The Congress with its four legislators has already been extending support to Jeetan Ram Manjhi government In fact Congress support continued from the time Nitish severed ties with BJP in 2013 Sources said Nitish in his talks with emissary of AICC president Sonia Gandhi discussed broad framework of “secular alliance” leading to the 2015 polls that would decide if Nitish could bounce back after the recent Lok Sabha drubbing It is not just JD(U) winning only two seats as against 20 in 2009 polls the party is greatly concerned with lead only in 17 of the 243 Assembly segments in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls A JD(U) source said although Congress might not formally announce its alliance with JD(U) immediately it could join Manjhi government after a few months Chief Minister Manjhi has still kept six positions vacant in his cabinet despite having strength of 30 ministers including the CM As elections to all three vacant Rajya Sabha seats are held separately it would go to single largest party JD(U) Although a section of disgruntled JD(U) leaders have been floating idea of fielding the fourth candidate with BJP support it looks unlikely as those going against party whip would lose their membership BJP for its part has not opened its card and had been keenly watching infighting within JD(U) getting intensified post cabinet expansion last week The third Rajya Sabha seat could either go to Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh or prominent Kushwaha leader Shakuni Choudhary The only hitch in choosing Shakuni is party already obliging him with making his son Samrat a minister Most JD(U) leaders are against “too much pampering of rebels at expense of committed party workers” Cultural advisor to CM Pawan Kumar Verma is also in the race of Rajya Sabha nomination JD(U) national president Sharad
