Ghaziabad: The Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) has launched the pre-paid electric meter system in Ghaziabad.

In view of power theft and irregular payment, UPPCL has introduced this system,” said UPPCL chief engineer Arvind Rajbedi.

Most professionals (living in Ghaziabad) are frequent travellers, and so their payments become irregular. It will be beneficial for them. They can top up their amounts online. Through this system, they would be able to save unnecessary charges during their long absence from their houses,

 

For single-phase connection, the meter cost would be Rs.6,251, and for a three-phase connection, the meter cost would be Rs.11,685.

An eight-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by her landlord’s son in Ghaziabad on Wednesday, bringing to light the burgeoning cases of sexual violations in the country.

Further highlighting the difficulty in reportage of such shameful incidents is the fact that the girl’s parents came to know about the assault only a day later when doctors told them about injury marks on her private parts.

The accused was nabbed by the police after two days on Friday.

As per the police account, the victim was residing with her parents in a rented accommodation in Maharajpur locality in Ghaziabad.

On September 9, when the girl’s parents were away at their respective jobs, the landlord’s son, Basant, barged into the rented portion of the house. He dragged the girl inside the room and raped her.

Facing resistance, the accused then burnt her private parts with a lit cigarette, police said.

After the girl complained of pain on Thursday, the parents took her to Hedgewar Hospital in east Delhi’s Karkardooma area, where the doctor noticed the injury marks on and around her private parts.

A criminal case has been registered against the accused.

“We have registered a criminal case against the accused under section 376 and protection of child from sexual offence Act. The culprit has been arrested,” said Ajay Pal Sharma, Superintendent of Police, Ghaziabad City.

The Government is planning to build expressways to ease the traffic congestion in Delhi.

“Plans are on the anvil for Rs 5,000 crore 16-lane road connecting Delhi with Ghaziabad and Noida on the outskirts in a major bid to ease traffic congestion in the capital,” said Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari.

The project work of Delhi-Meerut expressway will begin in three months.

“We are making a 16-lane highway on NH 24 from near ITO till Dasna. This will also ease traffic jams in Delhi and it will pass through the Akshardham temple. The work will start on this project in 3 months,” Gadkari told PTI in an interview.

The estimate cost of the project should be around Rs. 4,000 to Rs 5,000 crore, he added.

The Minister said that the government is also planning to build an Eastern Peripheral Expressway to provide signal-free connectivity between the national capital and neighboring towns.

Gadkari added, “File has gone from the Finance Ministry to the Cabinet and I guess in a month’s time, we will start work on the project (The Eastern Bypass Project). This will ease traffic jams in the city.”

The project is likely to be completed by July 2018 and the estimate cost of the project would be around Rs. 6,000 crore.

Following a Supreme Court Verdict, the draft of building these two expressways  were made  in the year 2006.

Eastern Peripheral Expressway envisages to provide signal-free connectivity between Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Gautam Budh Nagar (Greater Noida) and Palwal while the Western Expressway will connect Kundli to Palwal via Manesar in Haryana.
