Though the losses are attributed to natural calamities like cyclone and floods, experts say it is also an indication of poor storage facilities, pilferage and transit loss.

NAGPUR: The city's historical Sonegaon Lake can serve as an alternate source of water during calamities besides being a rejuvenation spot for citizens. But, it seems the civic body doesn't find it worth conserving. An RTI query by activist Abhay Kolarkar has bared the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) claims on reviving the precious water body. In its reply, the NMC has informed that Rs3.6 crore has so far been spent for the rejuvenation of Sonegaon Lake. It has claimed that the main work of beautification was completed in 2014. The remaining work will be done by March this year. But, when TOI visited ground zero, the real picture was nothing like the facts presented by NMC.

RTI for getting info regarding action taken by Municipal Corporation on request for reconstruction of drain.
MusicalSoul posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportHello Members! I urgently need your valuable guidance and help in framing queries to retrieve information using the RTI Act from my city's Municipal Corporation regarding action taken by them on my written request for reconstruction of drain. The background for the same is as under: I lodged a written complaint three months ago with the Complaints Section of my city's Municipal Corporation regarding improper drain (narrow & shallow) in front of my house and opposite my house (approx. 6-8 metres total) due to which dirty water and filth flows out on the road. I also pointed out the fact that this particular area of drain was left out by the Municipal Corporation when they reconstructed the drains of my locality the last time i.e. 8 years ago. I requested them through this letter to reconstruct this area of drain. I got a Docket Number for my complaint. After a few days, seeing nothing happening, I again went to the Municipal Corporation's Complaint Section for enquiring about the matter. The clerk checked the status in his computer and told me that there is no status mentioned so I should go and meet the Junior Engineer in this regard. The J.En. asked me to wait for sometime for the "Tender Process" to get over. I came back but nothing happened. When nothing happened for 2 months, I made a written complaint to the District Collector who must have sent a letter to the Municipal Corporation because two weeks after that, I got a call from the Municipal Corporation informing me- "We will attend to your complaint soon" but still nothing has happened and 3 months have passed. I don't think they have issued any notice for any tender in this regard. Also, I am not sure whether issuing a notice for tender is required for such a small work as this can be treated as repairs. I want to use the RTI Act to get information in this regard urgently. Kindly help me in framing my queries. Thanks & Regards.

I couldn't find that information from the Aligarh Nagar Nigam website Welcome to Official Website of Aligarh Nagar Nigam Is the address I've used below correct?
