Home Guards Will Be Deployed To Keep Watch on Traffic at Nariman Point

Residents of Nariman Point in Mumbai may choose to appoint home guards for supervising traffic at the upmarket area. Some of the prominent businessmen and residents have suggested employing six home guards for resolving overcrowding problems at Nariman Point. The trial project will involve V V Rao Marg, NCPA Marg, Vinay Krishna Marg, Ramnath Goenka Marg, Rajni Patel Marg, Jamnabai Bajaj Marg and Free Press Journal Marg.

Surinder Kumar, the Additional directorate-general of police (home guards), has verified to “Times of India” that he would look at this proposal from a positive viewpoint. He also adds that the proposal would be examined only after the ending of election code of conduct.

Sources reveal that people like Jeyson Nadar, Kunti Oza¸ Ernest John, M B Vakharia have come together to establish the Nariman Point Association (NPA), for outlining a method to solve traffic problems.

According to Vakharia, the decision to deploy home guards is collectively taken by the people of Nariman Point. He also states that private guards cannot be used for supervising traffic as it will not be admissible. Vakharia also says that the home guards will perform their duties like policemen with uniforms.

The NPA has undertaken a study and found that in total about 4,000 cars arrive at Nariman Point. The NPA has brought in people from the corporate world. The home guards will work from 9am-5pm and then from 5pm-11pm. They will be paid by the NPA.

The deputy commissioner of police (zone I) Ravindra Shisve reveals that the proposal is being examined as it engages the participation of people. He adds that other stakeholders are also involved in the proposal.
