Water cut in Jamnagar (Twice in week now)

Lack of adequate rain in Jamnagar led Jamnagar Municipal Corporation (JMC) to announce water cuts in the city.

While JMC was supplying water every alternate day, now the distribution will be just twice a week. JMC sites that the water level are drying up fast and the Narmada water is the only source for supplying drinking water.

JMC complains the in-adequate and irregular supply of Narmada water is adding more problems.

Essar bank account freeze - now what

Gujarat govt. took an aggressive move and freezes 3 bank accounts of Essar Oil Ltd. In Jamnagar district.

While the state sales tax department shows no remorse in this act, Essar oil expressed "surprise and disappointment" over the government's "unexpected" move.

Essar already intimated its position to State Govt. and also updated that it will deposit 1000 cr. In 30 days.

On June 25, a High Court division bench, rejected the plea of Essar Oil for relief in repayment of Rs 8,414 crore due as sales tax deferment liability.

The company, which was building a nine-million tonne per annum crude oil refinery at Vadinar, needed to complete the project by April 2003, in order to qualify for sales tax incentives. But the project began operations in 2006.

This was to recover sales tax dues of over Rs 8,000 crore from Essar Oil Limited.

ગુજરાતના એક ખૂણામાં પડી જવાને કારણે જામનગર એના સગા ભાઇ સમા રાજકોટ જેવું પૈસેટકે સમૃદ્ધ નહિ બન્યું હોય, પણ રજવાડી શહેરની શાન-ઓ-શૌકત હજી જામનગરમાં બરકરાર છે, જે રાજકોટે ગૂમાવી દીધી છે.
શહેરનું ચક્કર મારવા નીકળ્યા હો, તો એક ગાળ બેશક સાંભળવા મળશે ‘‘નવરીના’’,
એટલે સીધી ક્રિયાપદની ગાળો ય નવી નોટોની માફક ચલણમાં મૂકાઇ છે, ‘‘હવે હાલતીનો થા...’’ ...‘‘જરા ઊભીનો ’રે, ને...!!’’
બાકી અફ કોર્સ, તમારે સ્વીકારવું તો પડે જ કે, દુનિયાભરમાં જામનગર જેવી મીઠી ભાષા.. ફક્ત જામનગરીઓ પાસે જ સાંભળવા મળે. ‘‘અમે તો ‘કે ’દિના તમારી રાહું જોતા’તા, ભાઆ... ય, પણ તમે નો આઇવા.’’ (‘નો આઇવા’ એ તો ફક્ત મનગમતા માણસો માટે, બાકીનાને ‘તમે નો ગુડાણા...’’ એમ કહેવાય. આવા મહાનુભાવો માટે, ‘પાણી પીઘું’ ને બદલે ‘ઢીંચ્યુ’ જમવાને બદલે ‘ગળચ્યું’ બોલાય.

જામનગરમાં કોઇને ઘેર મેહમાન થયેલો માણસ ભૂખ્યો પાછો ન જાય. બાકીના ગુજરાતમાં બરણીવાળો ગયા શુક્રવારવાળો નાસ્તો ખવડાવીને મેહમાનોને પતાવી દે. જામનગરવાળા જમાડીને મોકલે. ન જમો તો કદાચ મારે ય ખરા. કટાણે ગયા હો તો ગરમાગરમ પાટા (આપણી ભાષામાં પેલા લાંબા ‘ફાફડા’) હોય. અડઘું જામનગર રોજ સવારે ભૂલ્યા વગર ગરમ ગાંઠીયા અને પાટા ખાઇ ખાઇને મોટું થયું છે. જામનગરમાં કોઇ માંદુ પડે, તો બ્લડને બદલે ગાંઠીયાના બાટલા ચડાવવાનો દસ્તુર છે. લારીને આ લોકો રેંકડી કહે છે. પાણી-પુરીની શોખિન પ્રજા પહેલા પૂછી લે છે, ‘‘દસ રૂપિયે મેં કિતની દોગે?’’ પેલો કહે ‘‘આઠ’’. એ પછી અમારો જામનગરી ધરાઇ ધરાઇને ૬૦-૭૦ પકોડીઓ ધરબી ગયો હોય ને પછી ભૈયાને અટકાવીને કહે,‘‘ભૈયાજી, દસ રૂપિયે કી હો જાયે, તો બોલ દેના"...!!

200 boats on paper - Kerosene Scandal

Fishermen across Jamnagar district are outraged on the Govt. quota of Kerosene distribution.

First, fishermen are supplied only 35% kerosene of their total fuel need, as against to 85% of the total allowable fuel as per distribution laws, on the other hand few cheaters are making quick bucks by registering a non-existent boats.

This scandal is widely organised through many department and hence none share the responsibilities. It works something like this, most of the fibre boat are assembled in Veraval / Somnath, forged documents are obtained from Mamlatdar office of manufactured place, later an affidavit stating the copies as original document is submitted to Gujarat Maritime Board, this generates a call for the fisheries department for releasing a boat, this call is later used by any Tehsil office (in this case Dwarka office) to distribute kerosene, it is also believed that as there is a finite number of such forged documents, the office does distribute the kerosene on backdoor.

In the distribution chain, as per agreed norms, every fibre boar is allocated 250 Litre. Of subsidised fuel. However actual requirement for a month of fuel is around 500 Litre. Per boat per month. Actual allocation of fuel (subsidised) is only 85 Litre. This is just 35% of agreed quota and actually 15% of total fuel requirement per boat per month, this forces the fishermen to get non-subsidised fuel from market at higher cost.

Since last 10 years, Rupen port in Jamnagar has seen this cheating evolving to a tradition now, subsidised fuel is sold at 10.30 Rs. per lt., however as per market cost the fuel is sold at around 60 Rs. per litre, fishermen had to shell out additional 50 Rs. Per litre. The black money circuit is amounted to 8-9 Lakh.

Rupen port has around 1500 boats, some says 200 out of these are only on paper, agencies says that counting of all boats is not possible (!!!) as there are no record of which boat left for sea and which is at bay. This makes things easy for cheaters to hide the non-existent boats.
