आप सामाजिक चेतना के लिए सदैव सजग रहते है । क्यूँ ना एक वृहद अभियान ग्रेटर नॉएडा में एक हफ़्ते के लिए चलाया जाय जिसमें ग़लत दिशा में चलने वाले वाहनों का चालान किया जाय और साथ साथ सामाजिक संगठन के लोग उनसे शपथ पत्र पर हस्ताक्षर भी करवाए की भविष्य में ग़लत दिशा में नहीं चलेंगे ।
सबसे ज़्यादा अल्फ़ा , रेयान , डेल्टा , जगत फ़ार्म , पी ३ आदि पर लोग ग़लत दिशा में चलते है ।
ग्रूप के विचार / सुझाव हेतु प्रेषित ।
सधन्यवाद ,
आलोक सिंह

आलोक जी हम आपकी बात से सहमत है। लेकिन जब तक प्रसासन सख़्ती से पेश नहीं आयेंगा तब तक लोग अपनी जान जोखिम में डाल कर रंाग साइड चलते रहेंगे। आपने देखा होगा दिल्ली मे यातायात के नियम सख़्त है इस वजह से वहाँ बिना हेलमेट के कोई नहीं चलता । और सभी यातायात नियमों का पालन करते है।यह एक बड़ी समस्या है ।इस समस्या को दुर करने के लिये सामाजिक संगठन भी लगातार प्रयासरत रहते है।मेरा प्रसासन के उच्चाधिकारीयो से भी निवेदन है कि ग्रेटर नोएडा में गम्भीर हो चुकी रंाग साइड चलने की समस्या से निजात दिलाने में सहयोग करे । सह धन्यवाद SANJAY DELTA 2

थोड़ा तकनीकी सुधार भी हो ।10मीटर के बदले दो किलोमीटर के चक्कर मे 1किलोमीटर रांग चलते है अगर प्राधिकरण के सामने के कट की तरह कट बन जायें तो लोग संभल कर पार कर अपनी साइड पकड लेंगे इससे फ्यूल व समय भी बचेगा वह एक्सीडेंट भी नही होगे यहां इतने हाई मानसिकता बाले लोग तो 1% ही होगे और प्रशासन की सख्ती व समस्या भी कम हो जायेगी RUPA GUPTA

रांग साइड जाएँगे, फुल स्पीड जाएँगे, कहीं रुकेंगे न हम।
आँखे दिखाना, गाली देना, सिटी का कल्चर सनम।।
आजा ग्रेटर नोएडा में घूम जा, आजा ग्रेटर नोएडा में घूम जा।।
इस कल्चर को बदलने की जरूरत है। आलोक जी के साथ। अवधेश

अवधेश जी वास्तव में यातायात नियमो का उल्लंघन शहर के लिए एक गंभीर समस्या है, और इसके लिये यहाँ की आम जनता के साथ साथ यहाँ के अधिकारी भी कही ज्यादा जिम्मेदार है, क्योकि लोग उस बात पर अनुसरण करते है जो बड़ो को करते हुए देखते है, यही हॉल यहाँ की जनता का है , क्योकि हमारे,न्यायपालिका,शासन,पुलिस के उच्च अधिकारी, सामाजिक,व् राजनीतिक लोग रोजाना ग्रेटर नोएडा में wrong स साईड चलते मिलेंगे उदहारण के तोर पर मोज़र बियर गोल चक्कर व् एल. जी गोल चक्कर पर उपरोक्त लोग रॉंग साइड जाते हुए मिलेंगे जब नियमो को बनाने वाले और नियमो को तोड़ने वाले को दण्डित करने वाले नियमो को तोड़ते है तो जनता पर उसका प्रभाव आना सौभाविक् है , इन अधिकारियो के साथ 2 आम जनता से अपील है की प्लीज यातायात नियमो का पालन करे , और अपने शहर की एक सुन्दर छवि लोगो के सामने पेश करे की ग्रेटर नोएडा शिक्षित और कानून पसंद लोगो का शहर है। धन्यवाद दीपक भाटी (Advocate) महासचिव गोल्डन फेडरेशन ऑफ़ R.W.A,s ग्रेटर नॉएडा

अगर इस ग्रुप के सभी सदस्य स्वयं ठान लें कि रांग साइड में नहीं चलेगे तो यह समस्या कुछ हद तक ठीक हो सकती हैं और दूसरे लोगों को भी प्रेरित कर सकती है DIWAKAR SINGH

परिचौक परिवार एक बैठक बुलाये तो हम सब मिलकर कुछ निर्णय लेकर इस दिशा में आगे बढ सकते हैं । AWDESH


From the facts available on record it appears that the parties, namely NPCL and UPPCL, have been in perpetual conflict over the rate on which NPCL had been getting bulk supply of electricity from UPPCL. NPCL obtained a license from Govt. of Uttar Pradesh for carrying out distribution in the area of Greater Noida as a private sector player in the distribution of electricity on 30th August, 1993. Its entire power requirement was met by UP State Electricity Board (UPSEB or Board for short) and there after by UPPCL, a successor of UPSEB. UPPCL allowed NPCL to draw power load up to 45 MW only in view of power constraints. The two entered into an agreement on 15.11.1993. UPPCL agreed to supply power of 45 MW for a maximum period of 4 1/2 years. Under the terms of the agreement, the stipulated tentative power purchase price was Rs.1.66 per unit. This rate was to remain operative for only six months. The agreement included a term that the rate would be subject to revision as extracted below:
The above rates of Company are tentative which will be studied and revised after six months by an independent authority to be nominated by State Government and mutually acceptable to NPCL and Supplier for this purpose. If during the period of these six months this Body fixes more/less charges on the basis of the above, it will be adjusted accordingly. SANJAY RWA DELTA 1?


मेरा सभी सम्मानित साथियों को नमस्कार , मेरे साथियों ग्रेटर नोएडा मे 1993 से आज तक बिजली कम्पनी Npcl बिजली सप्लाई दे रही है जब Npcl ने uppcl कम्पनी से 23 साल पहले क़रार किया था । तो यह तय हुआ कि हम अपना पावर हाऊस लगायेंगे और ग्रेटर नोएडा के निवासियों को सस्ती बिजली उपलब्ध करायेगे । लेकिन साथियों आज तक Npcl सिर्फ़ uppcl से सस्ती बिजली लेकर और हमें महँगे दामों पर दे रहा है सीधे सीधे दलाली कर रही है और आम जनता से सर चार्ज के नाम पर लूट करने पर लगी हुई है।आप सब बुद्धिजीवी और जागरूक नागरिक है इस विषय पर भी अपना ध्यान दे।


It’s my personal thinking that to accommodate changing life styles wherein families are not only becoming nuclear in size but also forced that both parents are to be on job leaving their kids for care. Such caring of kids in neighbourhood by women who are homemaking but in financial need to earn, should be allowed to do so & not covered in commercial activities. It’s the way we can be inter-dependent society & keeping kids in better supervision. Similarly tuition services, stitching services, providing tiffin services are also kind of home based services. I don’t think anybody doing these services from home is becoming rich except that running their families smoothly
