Wetland authority in State soon

GUWAHATI, Feb 2 – To bolster the efforts for preserving the rich wetland resources of the State, the government is considering to constitute a State Wetland Authority. This was announced by Minister of Environment and forests, Rockybul Hussain on Tuesday.

After inaugurating the central function of the World Wetland Day organized by the Department of Environment and Forests, the Government of Assam in collaboration with the Assam Science Technology and Environment Council and Assam Pollution Control Board, Rockybul Hussain said that peoples participation was a pre-requisite in all conservation efforts.

While highlighting the biodiversity of the wetlands in the State, Hussain said that the government was giving serious thought to bring a legal perspective in preserving the wetlands mainly those concentrated in the rural areas.

It needs to be mentioned here that the State has around 3500 wetlands and the government has identified another 15 wetlands and submitted proposals to the Centre for preservation and management of these 15 wetlands.

The minister referring to the only Ramsar site in the State Deepor Beel, mentioned that in view of the ecological and environmental importance of the wetland, the government has initiated several measures for its preservation and management. He also said that the government has adopted scientific methods to identify the route of the migratory birds that visit Deepor Beel.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof Arup Kr Misra of Assam Engineering College stressed on a proactive role of the younger generation to protect the environment. Expressing concern at the degradation of most of the wetlands in the State, Prof Misra said that things would change only if the young people start a movement to save the environment.

A large number of school students attended this function that had the theme, Wetland, Biodiversity and Climate Change. Members of Joint Forest Management Committees and government officials were also present at the function.

Citys western part under high hazard zone

GUWAHATI, Oct 3 – As per the citys seismic micro-zonation report, the western part of the city, covering Bhattapara and its adjacent Garal, Bulla (near Kahikuchi), Azara, Baharbari and Khanapara on the south bank and Singimari on the north bank, falls under the very high hazard zone as far as seismic vulnerability is concerned. The region comprising Lachitpur, Tetelia, Mirzapur near Azara, Deka Para near Bulla etc, including the LGB International Airport, falls under the high hazard zone classified for ascertaining the seismic liability.

These were the findings of a team of experts engaged for preparing the report on behalf of the Union Department of Science and Technology (DST). The report was released at a city function by the then Union Minister for Earth Sciences, Science and Technology Kapil Sibal on January 18, 2008.

It has identified the areas where the Koinadhara Assam State Guest House is located, Kalapahar Hills, Ganeshpara, Odlabakra, Rehabari, with the locations of the important installations like the BSNL, Amtron, Gauhati University and IrrigationDepartment offices, as falling under moderate hazard zone.

It has stated that the area near the eastern flank of the Brahmaputra, the periphery of the hills like the Fatashil Hill, Kalapahar Hill, and some areas in the eastern part of the Guwahati Metropolitan Authority area fall under the low and very low vulnerable zone.

The report states that the hazard and risk map presented with it may be useful for land use planning and making mitigation decisions. A sum of about Rs 5 crore was spent on preparing the report.

Another report on seismic vulnerability of Guwahati, was also released at the same function. A team led by Dr Jayanta Pathak of the Assam Engineering College, prepared this report for the Seismology Division of the Union Ministry of Earth Sciences.

This report was prepared as a part of the main report released by the Union Minister. Findings of this report have also been incorporated in the main report.

It has divided the Guwahati urban area buildings into four categories—Type-A, Type-B, Type-C and Type-X. Type–A buildings are those which are built with bamboo reinforced biomass wall cladding, thatched or CI sheet roof, unburnt brick houses, Assam Type houses in timber frame.

The Type-B houses include the ones with brick masonry wall 6 by 6 to 10 by 10 corner columns with lintel bend and tie, timber trussed CI sheet roof, buildings of the large block and pre-fabricated type, half-timbered structures, buildings in natural hewn stone.

The Type-C buildings include the ones with reinforced concrete building — engineered and non-engineered — with beam, column and slab construction, well-built wooden structures, while the Type-X include the ones not covered by A, B and C types.

This report says that there has been a phenomenal rise in construction of multi-storey apartment and commercial buildings, which are mostly G+5 to G+8 RCC buildings.

These buildings are engineered in a sense that they are designed by engineers as per IS: 1893 code made mandatory by the GuwahatiMetropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) about 16 years back.

But, this report says, about 20 per cent of these buildings are found deficient while quantitative analysis was done as per newly amended IS: 1893-2002 code.

It has also observed that implementation of the BIS codal provisions regarding earthquake resistant design and construction (IS: 4326-1993), was found to be absent in almost all the non-engineered Type-C residential buildings of the city (pp14).

Majority of the building stock (about 85%) of the city consists of Type-C buildings. The Type-B and Type-A buildings in residential areas (about 15%), though non-engineered, have in-built earthquake resistant construction features in them.

The report maintains, about 20 per cent of the apartment buildings are deficient in ductility provisions as enumerated in BIS: 13920-1993 code. (pp15)

It also adds, it is found that Type-A, Type-B and Type-C building stocks of the city are respectively 10 per cent, 40 per cent and 30 per cent vulnerable to major earthquakes.

Climate change affecting NE monsoon pattern

GUWAHATI, Oct 2 – In what seems to be the first scientific confirmation from a valid authority of the impact of the climate change phenomenon on India, Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology Director Prof BN Goswami has said that the number of heavy monsoon rainfall incidents in its NE region was reduced. This, he said, has happened under the impact of the global warming phenomenon.

On the contrary, Prof Goswami said, incidents of heavy monsoon rainfall are on the rise in the Central part of the country. Moreover, Indian monsoon has become less predictable now. The study of the monsoon rainfall data of the country for the past about 50 years has led to the above conclusions.

It needs mention here that the NE region of the country is generally known as one of the regions receiving high amount of rainfall with heavy rainfall incidents taking place copiously.

Prof Goswami was delivering the Prof AN Sarma Memorial Lecture on the Indian Monsoon in a Changing Climate on the occasion of the Ninth annual general meeting of the Assam Engineering College Alumni Association (AECAA) at the AEC Auditorium here yesterday.

The number of incidents of low and moderate rains is decreasing in the Central part of the country while the rise in the number of incidents of heavy rainfall has been leading to flash flood in this part of the country, he said.

But significantly, the mean amount of monsoon rainfall has remained stable in the country. So far, nothing is observed that suggests increased monsoon rainfall activities in the country, he said.

He also pointed out to the fact that the year 2009 was found to be the warmest in the country in the past 100 years.

However, the country has a very small climate modeling community and it is also not that well-equipped to meet the challenges of simulating the changed patterns and go for the right predictions, said Prof Goswami.

He maintained that under the impact of the global warming phenomenon, the global mean temperature is increasing at a faster rate. This has become evident with the examination of the temperature data for the past 100 years and comparing them with the reconstructed data on global temperature for the past about 1,000 years.

At the function, Prof AK Ghosh of IIT-Kharagpur delivered the Prof PM Deka Memorial Lecture on Hypersonic Aircraft. Both Prof Goswami and Prof Ghosh interacted with the audience.

Assam Engineering College not in new AICTE list

GUWAHATI, July 5 – Though the name of Assam Engineering College (AEC) does not figure in the new list of institutes approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), the Director of Technical Education, Assam, Pradyut Goswami assured that there is no cause for worry as the name of the college did not figure in the list only because of a technical problem.

The fact that the name of AEC did not figure in the fresh list available in the website of the AICTE caused concern among the students and guardians as the names of other AICTEapproved institutions including the Engineering Colleges and Polytechnics figure in the list.

When contacted, the Director, Technical Education, said that there is no reason for worry and the AICTE has already extended the time for submitting data up to the end of July. He said that the problem occurred due to a technical issue as the AEC could not submit all the relevant information to the Council. He said that the information required by the Council should now be sent online and the Council does not accept hard copies. But due to some problems, the AEC failed to submit the information online on time and that is whythe name of AEC does not figure in the list of approved institutions. He said that the AEC would be able to send all the required information by this month and there would be no issue of disqualification of the college.

Replying to a question, Goswami said that an Engineering college requires approval from the State Government, concerned University and the AICTE and the AEC has fulfilled all the norms. An Engineering college needs at least 30 bighas of land and the AEC has 1300 bighas of land, while, the infrastructure required is available in the college. He said that there is no shortage of teachers in the college and in fact in some departments, the number of teachers is more than what is actually required. However, he admitted that a few departments including Electronics and Computer Science has shortage of senior faculty and that is a global phenomenon as it is difficult to find qualified persons for appointment in senior posts of these departments.

When pointed out that the college was running without full fledged principal for years, Goswami said that the problem occurred when the post was reserved for ST and SC as the Government had issued advertisement for the post twice and no qualified person applied. The Government has now moved the Assam Public Service Commission for de-reserving the post. However, at the same time, he said that the college has in –charge principal and that is adequate for AICTE recognition.

Commuters rue traffic snarls at Jalukbari

GUWAHATI, Oct 9 – Commuters traversing the Jalukbari intersection are enduring inordinate delays caused by frequent traffic snarls. Anyone travelling between the city centre and Gauhati University or Assam Engineering College is likely to lose precious time due to the congestion, which aggravates during office hours.

Among those seriously aggrieved by the situation are air travellers, many of whom are delayed by the time they reach the Lokapriya Gopinath Bardoloi International Airport at Borjhar. A lecturer at Gauhati University, KK Sharma, complained that the traffic circle at Jalukbari has not been able to facilitate smooth flow of traffic, and accidents have been frequently reported. At present we have a problem that is getting worse…and requires urgent intervention, he remarked.
The density of traffic has increased manifold in recent times, and the width of the road is not enough to accommodate heavy traffic flow during rush hours. Consequently, there are long lines of vehicles, which sometimes extend more than a kilometre on the connecting roads.

At night the scene is no less dangerous with drivers driving with lights on full-beam creating another problem for fellow motorists. People affected by the traffic snarls have demanded better policing in the area, and some have called for stiffer fines on errantdrivers. Asma Husain, a regular commuter through the intersection, said that presence of more police personnel may be a solution to the problem.

The traffic police acknowledge the problem in and around the intersection, and believe that the situation can be partially addressed by better adherence to traffic rules.
