Crematorium Disappears From AMC’s TP Scheme

When the dead don’t get the dignity of a few feet of land to rest, you know that the city’s governance is in complete disarray. Believe it or not, a community crematorium at Makarba doesn’t find itself in the civic body’s town planning scheme.

According to a report, a plot reserved for the crematorium has made way for a road. What’s more, the remaining part of the land is earmarked for commercial purposes.

The report adds that the flabbergasted locals have demanded an inquiry as to how the 3,035 sq. m plot reserved for a crematorium doesn’t feature in Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation’s town planning scheme.

It’s held that the reservation for the crematorium was done away with since it would have brought down the prices of adjacent plots.

The state urban development department (UDD) has demanded an explanation from the AMC. A senior UDD official was quoted as saying, “What surprised us was that instead of realigning the road and restoring the crematorium plot, the AMC changed the width of the road from 12m to 18m, which was not required at all.

“If a widened road is realigned and shifted to the side, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation will have to compensate the private plot owners through which the road passes, causing monetary loss.”

The official added, “The UDD has pulled up the AMC because its revenue will be affected due to the fracas. The civic body collects betterment charges from plot owners in a TP scheme. If the road is widened, the corporation will have less land to reserve for sale, meaning less land to charge betterment charges.”

The locals will however be relieved that procedures are underway to restore the crematorium at the same place.
