But essentially,000 Hz | 32? is a labyrinth of encroachments, both by slums and corporate houses derelict properties and polluting activities It also has spawned demands from multiple claimants ranging from citizens’ groups to various government agencies For instance MbPT trade unions are up in arms against any move to create helipads and marinas at the cost of trimming port activities Fearing loss of jobs the union wants homes at construction cost for its 11000 employees and 36000 pensioners on 122 acres of land that currently houses 7000 workers’ quarters “In 2013-14 we managed a turnover of 60 million tonnes of bulk cargo but to make available land for their many plans MbPT is slowly diverting loading and unloading of cargo to the Kandla port in Gujarat” says Maruti Vishwarao secretary of Mumbai Port Trust Dock and General Employees’ Union He adds that while the unions are not opposed to releasing some of the land for the city’s needs the revenue generated should be ploughed right back into the port trust’s coffers “After all the Mumbai port has existed since 1873 much before the financial city that Mumbai is now” Sulakshana Mahajan an urban planner with the state government think tank Mumbai Transformation Support Unit points out that the decline of port cities all over set in a few decades after the end of colonialism Port activities decelerated further with increasing containerisation which the traditional ports were ill equipped to handle “Unlike Mumbai most western cities were quick to consolidate their port activities and let go of what was unviable in order to release the additional land” she says Mahajan further points out that as far back as the 1980s then prime minister Indira Gandhi had directed the MbPT to release its surplus land for public amenities as soon as the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust in nearby Navi Mumbai became fully operational *** Of the total 1800 acres with the MbPT only 23 hectares is actually vacant and that too is scattered all over Take the Sewri fort Under the plan it would be restored to serve as a viewing gallery for a flamingo park to be created down below For now the view from the fort is of withering coastal mangroves on slurry splattered with pink patchworks where the flamingos have flocked From the Rann of Kutch they come here to feed on algae soaked in toxic effluents waste from the nearby ship-breaking yard and sewage from a municipal outlet The sky to the north is lined with thick smoke emanating from three oil refineries a coal-based power plant and a chemical fertiliser plant In the southern-most tip of Sassoon Docks a hub of fish trade worth a couple of crore rupees daily the land is covered with fish-scales and offal At the fishermen’s colony 62-year-old Kamlakar Vaity is more worried about his granddaughter’s daily battle with bronchitis than his own “She is only three and has to be put on nebuliser often” he sighs The shipbreaking yard at Darukhana Mazgaon High toxicity levels in the area mean it will take up to five years for soil quality to be restored for habitation For the last six years lakhs of tonnes of imported coal has been arriving at the port land to fuel Mumbai’s power plants From the giant stacks that sporadically combust due to the heat the coal is ferried in open wagons and dumpers that carpet the worn-out roads with soot All along this stretch are virtual ghost towns of crumbling housing quarters run-down warehouses iron scrap yards and rows of tarpaulin or corrugated roof shanties Then there is an urban cesspit of two dozen slum pockets housing at least 15 lakh residents who are worse off than their counterparts elsewhere in the city Most of the people who live in these quarters are informal sector workers employed in the scrap yards warehouses ship-breaking and repair units Since all this land belongs to the port trust the slums could never get the civic body to provide them any facilities Kawla bunder’s 40000-odd residents share two unusable toilets Water is collected on the sly from nearby fire brigade tankers through hoses passing through raw sewage The land development panel has been emphatic on the need for a policy on the lines of the Rajiv Awas Yojana which will involve a survey of all slum residents housing them with security of tenure and rehabilitating them in terms of livelihood once the hazardous activities are forced shut The panel has said that such a policy to be framed by the MbPT should not follow the state government’s flawed model of slum redevelopment based on arbitrary demolitions and free housing for those declared ‘eligible’ in return for allowing builders to exploit a part of the land However even before the report is set in motion officials have started simply effacing the shanties and reclaiming port land cordoning off the cleared areas Sassoon Docks a hub of fish trade is covered with fish remains MbPT Chairman R M Parmar says the port trust is simply doing its job as the prevailing laws allow them to demolish shanties irrespective of how long they have existed “The Union government is yet to decide on a policy for slums based on the panel’s recommendations But till that happens we are allowed to carry out demolitions under law” he says Conservancy worker Senthil Kumar has been battling sleepless nights since the MbPT mowed down hundreds of shanties in neighbouring Powder Bunder According to him officials swooped down on the colony at night with a demolition notice ordering residents to vacate their homes within 12 hours Typed in English it was indecipherable to most of the Dalit and Muslim migrants “We have been here for three generations now If I had a home in the village to go back to I would have taken my family out of this hellhole long ago” says Kumar 36 Fifteen-year-old Aarti Nandkishore doesn’t recall seeing demotions of this scale before “They seem determined to get rid of the slums this time I grabbed my school bag and rushed out before the bulldozers could flatten my hut but I have not been able to go to school since” she says Her school bag is now kept at a relative’s house as Aarti and her mother Jamuna forage the ruins of their house for wood to sell for some money Other displaced residents continue to live on the fringes of the newly cleared land banking on hope *** The shanties incidentally are not the only encroachers on the prime land Fifty per cent of it is occupied by lease-held properties including by a few corporate giants The port trust’s tenants include Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group and the MbPT is caught in legal wrangles on the issue with Tata Group’s Indian Hotels Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Bombay Yacht Club Radio Club Hindustan Unilever among several others “Many of these tenants including corporate houses have constructed entire buildings illegally or sub-let the property in breach of the lease agreement The MbPT should go after the bigger encroachers instead of gunning for slum residents” says Arvind Sawant the Shiv Sena’s MP from Mumbai-South Much of the leases have long expired but are deadlocked in litigation in anticipation of a real-estate bounty whenever the land is opened up for development Attempts to rationalise the paltry rentals at today’s market rates are also stuck in litigation Even once the land has been acquired and hazardous activities such as ship-breaking handling of rock phosphate and coal are shifted out to ports outside Mumbai as proposed the toxicity levels along the waterfront areas abutting it are so high that it will take up to five years for its bio-remediation and for the soil water and air quality to be restored to habitable levels The report also has chapters detailing how to go about getting land back from the lease holders and defaulters and how to shift out harmful industries Across the waters from Powder Bunder where slums were demolished recently is the ship-breaking yard of Lakri Bunder in Darukhana Here at Plot No 10 a Bollywood film crew is busy preparing the sets for the next day’s shoot of an Akshay Kumar starrer The crew goes about assembling heavy metallic props unmindful of workers from the nearby slums sawing open and dismantling what was India’s first aircraft carrier and one of the heroes of its 1971 war INS Vikrant It may be a little too late in the day to resurrect
