- Police to tighten noose on bars | Ludhiana NYOOOZ
Case registered under bailable offence no deterrent to erring bar ownersNikhil BhardwajTribune News ServiceLudhiana, September 14Despite repeated orders of the Police Commissioner that no liquor bars or restaurants will remain open after 11 pm, bar owners are hardly paying any heed to the closure timings.

As offence under this section is bailable, bar owners facing more than one FIR continue to violate the law.
Meanwhile, the police have arrested Jaswinder Singh Bindi who shot dead Manjit with his .32-bore revolver.
â€The police can even recommend licence cancellation even if a bar owner is facing one FIR or more.

â€œThere should be no FIR against public representative Bains as it will suppress the voice of MLAs.
I agree the DC office is not an individualâ€™s office, itâ€™s a public office and the DC should have also addressed the issue socially, instead of dragging it further,â€ said Ashu.
Being an MLA, he should fight with bureaucrats on public issues but with some restraint.
Use of abusive language uncalled for: BittuCongress MP Ravneet Bittu said a DC couldnâ€™t dare misbehave with a public representative, but the use of abusive language by a public representative for a DC is wrong.

While most roads and streets were under knee-deep water, part of a road, alongside the (now abandoned) City Centre project site, in Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar colony of the Ludhiana Improvement Trust (LIT) caved in after the soil underneath was washed away.
Some part of the berms, along the road in H-block (near Prem Vihar Chowk) developed wide cracks, indicating possibility of more damage after another spell of rain.
Though the City Centre project was abandoned more than 10 years ago, the large portion of dug-up area had become accident-prone.
Earlier also, houses situated along the project site had suffered damage due to road cave-in in the past few years.

- Policy closes, leaves behind trail of illegal colonies | Ludhiana NYOOOZ
Kuldip BhatiaLudhiana, July 4The policy launched by the Punjab Government for regularistion of illegal colonies, which expired on June 30, has obviously failed to achieve the desired objective if the scant number of applications received by the Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (GLADA) is any indication.
According to GLADA Estate Officer Sonam Chaudhry, of 2,000-odd identified illegal colonies under jurisdiction of GLADA, only 450 developers had come forward for regularisation of colonies while around 15,000 applications were received for compounding of plots/properties in unlicensed colonies.
In other words, even by conservative estimates more than 75 per cent developers of the illegal colonies chose not to avail of the opportunity to get their colonies regularised.
â€œThe government has been further asked to issue directions to the development authorities not to lodge criminal cases under the PAPRA Act against developers of illegal colonies if they had made 100 per cent payment of the compounding fee,â€ he added.
The developers also demanded that colonies where development works were to be carried out by the regulatory authority or those colonies where total plots had been sold be exempted from registration under the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) and for regularisation of plots and properties in unlicensed colonies the developers wanted the receipt for payment of composition fee to be considered as NOC.
