SC discusses crematorium upgradation in Navi Mumbai

Crematorium upgradation and development was a main point of discussion at the Standing Committee meet on Wednesday, at Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) headquarters.

In Navi Mumbai, the crematoriums are not well maintained at many places and the facilities are also not up to mark and therefore people of satellite city struggle post mortem.

Speaking in unity with other members of standing committee, local corporator Saroj Patil raised concerns over the situation and demanded the development of a crematorium in Agroli village in the near future.

“There used to be a crematorium in Agroli village earlier; however, it was razed for the development of the station. Since the crematorium was razed, Agroli villagers have to cross rail tracks to reach out to a crematorium in Belapur for the final rites, putting their lives in danger,” echoed Patil, speaking of a proposal about developing a crematorium for children in Digha.

Patil added, “I have put the issue across the civic administration several times in the past, but it seems to fall on deaf ears. We need the crematorium to be set up at the earliest.”

Voicing out on the topic, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) corporator from Juhugaon, Purushottam Bhoir said, “The fight between the High Court and CIDCO has led to a halt on the development of the crematorium. We need a crematorium in sector 12 of Vashi.”

Answering questions put forth by the Sena corportaor, City Engineer Mohan Dagaonkar said, “The civic body was checking into the feasibility of constructing an underpass near the station to avoid inconvenience cause to villagers.”  

Not satisfied by the reply of City Engineer, Anant Sutar, Standing Committee Chairman instructed Dagaonkar to check whether the crematorium can be developed within the village itself.

NMMC Commissioner, Bhaskar Wankhede assured the standing committee members that the issue of development of crematorium will be settled and I myself will inspect the crematorium to alleviate the problem faced by the villagers.
