Introduction

As a part of the overall preparedness of the state, the Government of Maharashtra has a State Disaster Management Action Plan to support and strengthen the efforts of the district administration. In this context, every district has evolved it's own District Disaster Management Action Plan (DDMAP). It is expected that these multi-hazard response plans would increase the effectiveness of administrative intervention.

Multi-disaster Response Plan

The DDMAP addresses the districts’ response to disaster situations such as earthquakes, floods, cyclones, epidemics, off-site industrial disasters and roads accidents and fires. Some of these disasters such as floods and earthquakes affect large areas causing extensive damage to life, property and environment while others such as epidemics only affect large populations. In any case, the management of these disasters requires extensive resources and manpower for containment by remedial action.

The present plan is a multi-hazard response plan for the disasters and outlines the institutional framework required for managing such situations. However, the plan assumes a disaster specific form in terms of the actions to be taken by the various agencies involved in the disaster. The front-end or local level of any disaster response organisation will differ depending upon the type of disaster, but at the level of the back-end i.e., at the controlling level at the district it will almost remain same, for all types of disasters.

Objectives

The objectives of the District Disaster Management Action Plan are:

To improve preparedness at the district level, through risk and vulnerability analysis, to disasters and to minimise the impact of disasters in terms of human, physical and material loss.

To ascertain the status of existing resources and facilities available with the various agencies involved in the management of disasters in the district and make it an exercise in capability building of district administration. This enables the district to face a disaster in a more effective way and builds confidence across different segments of society. It will be a positive factor for long term development of the district.

To utilise different aspects of disaster mitigation for development planning as a tool for location and area specific planning for development in the district.
To use scientific and technological advances in Remote Sensing, GIS etc. in preparation of this plan with a view to ensure their continuous use for development planning.

To develop a framework for proper documentation of future disasters in the district, to have an update on critical information essential to a plan, to critically analyse and appraise responses and to recommend appropriate strategies

To evolve DDMAP as an effective managerial tool within the overall policy framework of Government of Maharashtra.

Response to disasters, in the absence of a defined plan, would be arbitrary leading to overemphasis of some actions and absence of other actions which could be critical. The objectives of any disaster management plan should be to localise a disaster and to the maximum extent possible contain it so as to minimise the impact on life, the environment and property. A formal plan for managing disasters is therefore necessary. This would include


 

a.   pre-planning a proper  sequence  of  response actions,

b.   allocation of responsibilities to the participating agencies,

c.   developing codes and standard operating procedures for various departments and relief agencies
      involved.

d.   inventory of existing facilities and resources

e.   mechanisms for effective management of resources

f.     co-ordination of all relief activities including those of NGOs to ensure a coordinated and effective
       response.

g.   Co-ordination with the State response machinery for appropriate support

h.   Monitoring and evaluation of actions taken during relief and rehabilitation

"Outline of Vulnerability Assessment" prepared by CSSD/EMC has been used as the basic instrument to collate district level information to meet the database requirements for the preparation of DDMAP.

Policy Statement

The underlying policy of the DDMAP is to protect life, environment and property while ensuring mitigation of the disaster to the maximum extent possible, relief to those affected  and restoration of  normalcy at the earliest.

Essentially, communities draw their support from the social institutions, administrative structure, and values and aspirations they cherish. Disasters may temporarily disorganise the social units and the administrative system and disrupt their lives built around these values and aspirations. A systematic effort to put back the social life on its normal course with necessary technology support and resources will contribute significantly to the resilience of the community and nation. 

This policy forms the basis of the DDMAP strategy. It aims at capacity building and prompt utilization of resources in a disaster situation through a partnership of the GOM, NGOs, Private Initiatives and the community. In pursuance with this policy, DDMAP addresses itself to strengthening the pre-disaster and post-disaster responses of various actors and stakeholders including the “victims” of the disaster.

 

OVERVIEW OF AHMEDNAGAR DISTRICT


Location

Ahmednagar city was established by Malik Ahmed, and it later on became the capital of the Nizamshahi kingdom. The District came to be known as Ahmednagar, as the district headquarters was located at  Ahmednagar. 
When the district was created in 1822 , it covered a much larger area including parts of the present Nasik and Solapur districts. The Ahmednagar district was a part of the Pune Division till 1981, after which it was made a part of the newly created Nasik Division.

Located in the central part of the state of Maharashtra, Ahmednagar district lies between 18°02’ and 19°09’ North latitudes and 73°09’ and 75°05’ East longitudes.

The district is bounded on the north by the districts of Nasik and Aurangabad, on the east by Beed, on the south by Solapur and on the west by Thane and Pune Districts.

Ahmednagar district covers an area of about 17,021 sq.km.

Ahmednagar district is divided into thirteen administrative sub-units (tahsils), namely, Ahmednagar, Parner, Pathardi, Shevgaon, Karjat, Shrigonda, Jamkhed, Shrirampur, Newasa, Rahuri, Akola, Sangamner, Kopargaon. There are 12 major towns which can be called as urban centres. The district is divided into 1556 villages, located within the 13 tahsils.  For administrative convenience, these thirteen tahsils are grouped into four sub-divisions as follows.

Salient Physical Features and Land Use Patterns

The district can be divided into two natural regions on the basis of the topography viz., the western region comprising of the hilly area and the eastern low lying region. The Sahyadri Mountain ranges pass through the Akola tahsil of Ahmednagar district. The highest peak “Kalsubai” (1654 m ) of the Sahyadri Ranges is located in this district.

Bhima and Godavari are the major rivers. The Pravara, a tributary of the Godavari joins it near Toka in Newasa tahsil. The Mula, a tributary of the Pravara, flows through the northern part of the district. The Bhima, although forming the southern boundary of the district with Pune district, is joined by  tributaries Sina, Kukadi and Ghod which flow through the Parner, Shrigonda and Karjat tahsils.

The Harishchandra Gad hill range which is the watershed of the Mula and Pravara rivers, covers a large area in the western part of the district, while the Baleshwar range covers some part of Parner tahsil.

Geology and Geomorphology

Geology

The entire Ahmednagar district is covered by basaltic lava flows of the Deccan Traps belonging to the Upper Cretaceous to Eocene age. The Deccan Trap basalts are overlain by alluvial deposits along the river Godavari and occupies the northern part of the district. The stratigraphical sequence of the different lithological units occurring in the district is give below.

Deccan Traps : The horizontally disposed basaltic lava flows of the Deccan traps are the only major geological formations occurring in the district. The flows are generally separated by clay layers. There are also intrusions known as  dykes   cutting  across the flows. The average flow thickness varies between 15 to 25 m.

Alluvium : A very small part of the district along the river Godavari is occupied by alluvial deposits. The alluvium is of recent age, and lying over the Deccan Traps. The alluvium has a wide areal extension spread over 6 to 7 kms across the river course. The alluvium consists of clay sand and silt with thickness ranging from 15 to 20 m.

Lineaments : There is a moderate network of lineaments. The prominent trends are north-south, northeast - southwest, and northwest - southeast. It is observed that the northwest - southeast lineaments have controlled the channels of the Ghod and Sina rivers.

The quality of ground water for household as well as agricultural purposes is very good over most parts of the district and the water table is generally between depths of 20 to 200 feet. At places, the water is very salty and unfit for use.

Geomorphology

The major geological formation of the area is Deccan Trap Basalts and so the area shows trappean landforms.

On the basis of degree of dissections and origin of the landforms, the trappean land forms have been classified as a) Highly Dissected Plateau, b) Moderately Dissected Plateau c) Slightly Dissected Plateau all of structural origin and Denudational Landforms.

Besides the trappean landforms , alluvial landforms also occupy small parts of the district.

Climate and Rainfall

The climate of the Ahmednagar district is hot and dry in general. The maximum temperature recorded in the month of May rises to about 40° C  while the lowest temperature recorded in the month of January goes down to about 5°C. The district is one of the drought prone districts of the state due to uncertain and uneven distribution of rainfall. It receives an annual average rainfall of about 700 mm.

The rainfall varies between 420 mm in Ahmednagar tahsil to 1086 mm in Jamkhed tahsil. However, the average rainfall in Akola and Sangamner tahsils is relatively more than that of the other tahsils.

The cold season in the district commences from December & ends in the month of        February. The period from March to the 1st Week of June is the hot season which is          followed by southwest monsoon season which lasts till the end of September. October & November constitute the post monsoon season.

Agriculture and Cropping Pattern

Of the total area of the district, 69% is under agriculture while about 10% land is taken up by forest. According to the 1990-91 figures, the number of registered land holdings was 6,80,609 which had 13,56,322 hectares of land.

There are three harvesting seasons in the district, namely Kharif, Rabi and Summer. During the Kharif season, foodgrains like bajra, jowar, rice, nachani, varai and cash crops like groundnut and sunflower are taken.  Akola tahsil accounts for most of the rice and nachani. During the Rabi season, jowar, wheat and Harbhara are taken. During the summer season, where water for irrigation is available, groundnut, maize, sunflower, vegetables etc are grown.

Storage of agricultural produce is done in the warehouses and godowns of the Maharashtra State Warehousing Corporation and those of Co-operative Societies. Up to 1994, there were 496 such godowns/warehouses with a total capacity of 1,12,570 metric tonnes. Ahmednagar city is the largest market place where in agricultural produce from other districts is also brought.

River Systems and Dams

The main methods of irrigation in the district are large, medium and small dams, lift irrigation and wells.  Till end of 1992-93, the total irrigated land stood at 3,89,191 hectare which was about 30% of the total land under cultivation.

Mula and Bhandardara are the two major irrigation projects in the districts. Water for irrigation is also got via canals from Gangapur (Upper Godavari Canal), Nasik District, and Ghod and Kukdi projects in Pune District. The total irrigation capacity of these projects is about 208 thousand hectares.

There are other medium scale projects at Visapur Adhla, Pargaon, Ghatshil, Manadohol, Bhojapur, Mahe Sangvi and Sina which can irrigate upto 71 thousand hectares, and about 64 small scale projects  with a total irrigation capacity of 23 thousand hectares.  Most of the small scale projects in the district are Kolhapur type dams which have proved to be very beneficial.

 Power Stations and Electricity Installations

There is at present no thermal power station or hydro-electric station in the district. The power requirements of the district is taken into consideration by the MSEB when planning for expansion of the network of the various substations for distribution spread throughout the district.

With the financial support of the World Bank, a Pumped Storage Scheme is being set up at Ghatghar. The Upper dam is being constructed on the Pravara river near village Ghatghar in Akola taluka of Ahmednagar district. The Gross storage of the dam is 5.87 Million Cubic Metre and the live storage is estimated at 5.21 Million Cubic Metre. The project work is yet to commence and is likely to be completed in June 2000. The purpose of the Ghatghar project is storage and pumping of water for generation of electricity of 250 MW

Transport and Communication Network

Ahmednagar district has a fairly well developed transport and communication infrastructure.

The only railway route passing through the district is the Daund-Manmad single line of the Central railway which has a length of 197 km with 24 stations. So goods as well as passenger travel through rail is limited.

The total length of roads is 12,900 km. A 60 km portion of the Pune - Nasik highway passes through Sangamner taluka.; State Highways and other roads - 1727 km .

The State Transport has a well spread out network of services with about 720 buses plying on 890 different routes .

Since Ahmednagar is an important marketplace, there is a large amount of material that is transported both in and out through private transporters. From the marketplaces of Shrirampur, Rahuri, Sangamner and Kopargaon, large amounts of sugar is transported to various parts of the country.

Up to end 1994, there were 1,34,320 registered vehicles of which 73% were two wheelers, 9% cars, jeeps, rickshaws, 5% goods carriers and the reamining 13% were other kinds of vehicles.

As on 31 March 1994, there were 637 post offices and 88 telegraph offices.  More than 617 villages have access to a post office. Also the availability of telephones is also good, with 24,199 telephones There are 18 post offices and 712 telephones per one lakh of population.

There is a Low Power Transmitter at Ahmednagar. Doordarshan service is available with almost every village. Moreover, the use of dish antennas is also increasing. There is also a Low Power station of the All India Radio which transmits only on F.M. band and that too only for three hours every evening.

RISK ASSESSMENT AND VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS


Economic, Social, Educational and Occupational Profile of the Population

Agriculture is the main economic activity, with 11781 sq. kms of agricultural area out of the total geographical area of the Ahmednagar district of 17048 sq. kms. Ahmednagar is one of the drought-prone districts of Maharashtra, which was severely hit by the drought in 1972.

According to the information provided by the district administration, the Ahmednagar district has 30.38% of it’s population below poverty line. 3.00% of the people are living in flood-prone areas, while 0.30% of the population are settled in the proximity of major chemical plants within a 3 km. Radius. 20% of the people are living in road-side settlements. 83% of the human settlements are in areas with non-specific building codes.

38.97 % of the people are illiterate, while 26.59% of the people are landless. 12.41% of the people belong to Scheduled Castes, while those belonging to Scheduled Tribes constitute 7.12% of the population.

There are 20 toxic chemical industries in the district. 898 villages out of the total of 1556 villages in Ahmednagar district do not have piped water supply. The effluent discharge from the chemical industries and sugar factories contaminate the drinking water sources in open dug wells and also contribute to the potential threat of spread of epidemics, especially during the monsoon season, as the groundwater table is also exposed to water contamination.

Jamkhed and Shevgaon are two towns in Ahmednagar district without fire brigades. With the spread of industries into these areas and with an expanding population, it is imperative that these towns are equipped with adequate fire fighting capability.
3429 families in Ahmednagar district are homeless. The high percentage of people who are landless and who depend on agricultural labour  are extremely vulnerable during periods of acute scarcity, as was evident in the severe scarcity of 1972. A large proportion of the rural population depend on the Employment Guarantee Scheme for their livelihood during the summer months.

The Ahmednagar district has a whole range of educational institutions  from small Anganwadis to medical, engineering and agriculture colleges.  Up to end of 1992, there were 3176 educational institutes including 2 pre-primary, 2678 primary, 368 secondary and 97 higher secondary schools and 22 colleges. Adult Education programme is being implemented in Pathardi and Karjat tahsils, with 9000 adults being given instruction through 300 centres.

Other facilities include Navodaya Vidyalaya at Takli Dhokeshwar, Public Schools, Mahatma Phule Agricultural University at Rahuri, Medical college at Pravaranagar, Homeopathic and Ayurvedic colleges, 14 ITIs, 4 engineering colleges, 8 polytechniques.


 

Disaster Specific Proneness

Floods

Floods are the most probable disaster which comes every year in some or other part of the district. Though 11 out of 13 Tahsils of the district are drought prone the district is subject to frequent floods from the rivers flowing from Sahyadri hill ranges around or across the district.

Rivers, which surround the district and cause flood, are Godavari, Ghod, & Bhima. The rivers which traverse from the district and cause flood are mainly Pravara, Mula, & Sina. There are some other tributaries on these rivers, which some times cause local floods such as Nandini in Shevgaon taluka, Vincharna in Jamkhed and Kautuki in Newasa taluka.

The district can be divide into two distinct river basins. One is Godavari basin and other is Krishna basin. The Upper part of the district starting from tahsil Akole consisting of Sangamner, Kopargaon Shrirampur, Newasa, Shevgaon Pathardi and part of Nagar, Rahuri and Parner taluka ending in the Nath-Sagar Dam in Paithan constitutes Godavari river basin and part of Parner, Nagar, Shrigonda, Karjat, Jamkhed, constitutes Krishna river basin.

Floods in the district are caused by following main reasons.

1.    Primitive method of floods forecast i.e. reservoir operations aimed at conserving water and ensuring
       safety of dam without  adequate concern for floods in down stream villages.

2.    Growth of vegetation and their-by obstructions in river channel.

3.    Non shifting of village population of flood affected area to rehabilitation area.

4.    Encroachment on flood zones.

5.    Constraints in K.T. weir operations during floods.

Floods due to Godavari River

Godavari river passes through Kopargaon taluka and then flows along the border of the district on the north eastern side till Nath-Sagar Dam in Paithan. There is a grid of dams in Nashik district on the tributaries of Godavari such as Gangapur, Darna, Kadwa etc. All these tributaries converge at control point near Nandur-Madhameshwar. Water discharge at Nandur-Madhameshwar is taken as indicator of flood level in risk prone area of Ahmednagar district. The vulnerability of other villages on bank of river Godavari is shown in the following chart

Floods due to Pravara River

Pravara river originates from Ghatghar, Shendi, Murshet area in Akole tahsil. At present there is only one reservoir- Bhandardara- of 11000 mcft. capacity. One more dam down-stream of Bhandardara is coming up -Nilwande Dam- and another dam upstream of Bhandardara dam is a Hydro Power Project known as Ghatghar which when fully constructed may change the flood intensity in the villages. The discharge of water at Bhandardara dam is taken as control point discharge and the villages which get affected, are shown in the chart enclosed. Moreover the road linking Nagar-Manmad highway to Akole tahsil via Sangamner gets submerged at 2 places due to heavy discharge of water from the Pravara river- one is at Kalas and second is at Dadha near Sangamner- making it necessary to provide the traffic diversion for rescue operations.

Floods due to Mula river

Mula river has its origin in Akole Tahsil with its catchment area covering Akole and parts of Sangamner, Parner and Rahuri tahsils. It has a dam near Rahuri known as Dnyaneshwar-Sagar whose capacity is about 26,000 mcft. The dam reached its full capacity in 1984-85, 88-89, 91-92, and thereafter continuously in 95-96, 96-97, 97-98. Mula river causes flood in villages on its banks. Highest flood was  recorded in this river in the year 1947-48 i.e. prior to construction of the Dam. Entire taluka headquarters of Rahuri is under flood zone marked by red and blue line.  The theoretical plot of flood zones by irrigation department shows that Ahmednagar-Manmad Highway will not get submerged near Rahuri, where the river crosses Nagar-Manmad State Highway, up to discharge of 1 Lakh cusses, however,  it has been observed that, actually, the bridge on the river near Rahuri  is in danger at  30000 to 40000 cusses flow in the river. The villages likely to be affected due to discharge at control point at Mula-Dam are shown in the chart enclosed. It is to be mentioned that the intensity of flood due to Mula and Pravara rivers increases due to the fact that the gates in K.T. weirs on river channel are not open during flood time.

Flood due to Sina River

Sina river in Karjat taluka does not have high flow down stream. It’s reservoirs  capacity is only 2000 mcft. However, Ahmednagar district headquarters which is on the upper side of the reservoir, comes under floods with rainfall of about  400 mm in 24 hours. Sina river which passes  from the western border of the Ahmednagar town may result into floods in the low lying  areas of township. It may not result in the losses of lives but definitely results into  the loss of goods, or other household  items. The traffic from Ahmednagar to Pune gets obstructed due to floodwater passing over the road bridge.

Floods due to Bhima River

Bhima river meets the Kukadi river near Daund. Bhima river has many tributaries such as Mula, Mutha,  Indrayani and Ghod in Pune district. It has about 17 dams’ structures on the upside. The water flow is from each one of them. On the down stream side there is a dam called Ujani-Dam near Pandharpur.  The backwater in Ujani dam rises above HFL resulting into floods. The control point for flood forecast  in Bhima river is at Daund. The villages likely to be affected by floods for various discharge levels in the river at Daund are shown in the enclosed charts.

Ahmednagar district had to make lot of preparations every year to mitigate the effect of floods and save life and property. Even though the maximum inflow in Ujani reservoir in estimated to be to the tune of  8,00,000 cusses and outflow from 41 gates from its spillway to the 6,34,000 cusses. Practically it is not possible to release there much water as down stream of the Ujani Dam. For example, in year 1997 discharge of about 2,75,000 cusses from Ujani and simultaneous discharge of 1,00,000 cusses from Nira river posed sever threat of flood to Pandharpur town. This result into storing of water in Ujani Dam above HFL between the free board area resulting it to flood danger in greater magnitude that designed.

Earthquakes

On 30-9-1993 there was earthquake in Latur and Osmanabad Districts in Aurangabad  Division .Newasa Taluka is on the border line of Aurangabad district. Due to this earthquake wall of one house was collapsed and two children were dead. The total loss due to earthquake has been estimated by the district Administration at  Rs. 5,17,410. Government has spent Rs. 25000/ for repairing damaged house.

Ahmednagar district does not have a history of earthquakes and hence there is no proper seismic monitoring network that covers the district. There is only one earthquake recording station at Bhandardara Dam.

However, recently there were some reports of seismic activity around Bota village of Sangamner Taluka. This area witnessed seismic activity albeit of a very low magnitude (<3.0) on the 2nd and 10th of February 1996.  This seismic activity was preceded by ground rumblings in the month of January 1996. Since the earthquakes were of a very small magnitude there was no damage to either RCC or mud-stone houses. The area where the earthquake was felt included the villages of Bota, Ambi Dumala, Mhaswandi, Jachakwadi, Kelwadi, Kurkutwadi and Malwadi.

Although these events appear to be rare, and of a very small magnitude, these activities must be monitored closely because they could be a prelude to some major earthquake. Geological and geomorphologic studies in the Pravara-Mula area (Kanhur Plateau) indicate significant neo-tectonic activity which could lead to seismic release of energy.

The Bota area is a comparatively backward area of Sangamner Taluka, with most of the people being farmers. There are no major industries or power stations in the area. The Pune Nasik Highway, an important arterial highway,  passes through this area. The nearest urban centre is Sangamner about 55 kms away, where there are adequate facilities to deal with emergencies like first aid, police personnel, fire brigade and rescue volunteers. However specialised equipment like bulldozers and earthmoving equipment is available only at Ahmednagar which is about 75 kms away.

 

Epidemics

3% of the geographical area is prone to floods in Ahmednagar district, because of the proximity to rivers. 16% of the geographical area is also in the catchment areas of dams and canal networks. If floods occur during the monsoons because of the continuos rainfall, there is a possibility that some epidemics my break out.

848 villages do not have piped water supply and hence are dependent entirely on drinking water sources like wells. The lack of adequate provision of safe drinking water in these villages can also create stressful situations in the event of the outbreak of epidemics.

12.46% of the households live under unsanitary conditions in slums, and are also susceptible to the outbreak of water-borne diseases.

In the past decade, however, there has not been any instance of outbreak of epidemics in Ahmednagar district.


 

Road Accidents

Ahmednagar District has a good network of roadways with 60 kms of the Pune-Nasik Highway passing through the western part and the Pune -Manmad road passing through the central part of the district. During the last ten years 2470 persons have died in road accidents in the whole district.

As on all highways, there are a few accident-prone spots where the frequency of accidents is the most. All these fall on the stretch of the Pune - Manmad highway. These are Kamargaon Ghat, Chas (Nagar taluka), Supa (Parner taluka), MIDC area (Nagar taluka), Krishi Vidyapeeth ( Rahuri Taluka) Shingve and Viladghat (Nagar Taluka) and these accident prone areas have been shown in the map. This highway has very heavy traffic with all vehicles proceeding to the Aurangabad District, Shirdi and Gujarat. Moreover there are seven M.I.D.C.areas which lie along this road and few L.P.G.storage godowns also .This leads to a high incidence of transport of hazardous chemicals and L.P.G. along this route. Major Industries like Kirloskar Oil Engines, Sun Pharmaceuticals, Sanjiwani Sahakari Sakhar Karkhana etc. situated on this route receive about 35 tankers every month  carrying L.P.G. and other hazardous chemicals. From these and other major chemical industrial units, 535 tankers carrying hazardous chemicals go out of Ahmednagar district every month.
All these factors contribute to the potential high risk of road accidents on this stretch of the highway. The following is an analysis for the facilities available in the proximity of each of these accidents spots.
Supa, a major rural centre in Parner Taluka has a proposed M.I.D.C. However, the nearest major hospitals with surgercy facilities and ambulance are at Ahmednagar about 35 kms  from Supa. The same is true for Kamargaonghat and Chas villages. The nearest Police Station is an Out Post in Supa town. Specialised equipment like bulldozers, earthmoving equipment, etc. are available at Ahmednagar.

Ahmednagar city is equipped with several major facilities and is at a distance of only five kms away from the M.I.D.C. areas. There is a separate police station for the M.I.D.C. There are several private hospitals with surgery and ambulance facility near the M.I.D.C., especially the Dr. Mhaske Accident Clinic.

The next accident prone spot of Viladghat is only 10 kms. from Ahmednagar and hence necessary equipments can be easily rushed in case of emergency.

Shingve and Krishi Vidyapeeth fall in Rahuri Taluka. Rahuri has a Municipal Hospital with surgery facilities and ambulance service with additional ambulance also available with the Rahuri Sahakari Sakhar Karkhana. The Krishi Vidyapeeth has a large number of vehicles which can be requisitioned to transport injured persons in case of emergency. Specialised equipment like bulldozers are available only at Ahmednagar, about 30 kms.

From the foregoing analysis it is clear that for all the accidents prone areas there are adequate facilities within a radius of 25 to 30 kms. for management of emergencies arising out of road accidents.

Fire

51 people lost their lives due to fires, which mostly occurred in huts situated near the sugar factories. These huts are constructed by migrant labour during the sugar cutting season and the fires break out due to kerosene lamps in the night.

In the last decade, 7862 fires have been reported in Ahmednagar district. The total loss estimated due to fires is Rs. 24,17,55,560/- (Rupees Twenty Four Crores Seventeen Lakhs Fifty Five Thousand Five Hundred and Sixty only). The expenditure incurred on relief and compensation during the last thirty years works out to Rs. 3,36,59,337/- (Rupees Three Crores Thirty Six Lakhs Fifty Nine Thousand Three Hundred and Thirty Seven only).

In terms of past occurrence, fires are ranked second among the disaster probability of Ahmednagar district. The probability of future occurrence of fires appears to be medium.

Even though the fire probability is medium, the damage due to fires can be devastating and the extent of loss of lives and property can be high.

Jamkhed and Shevgaon do not have fire brigades and it is necessary to ensure the setting up of fire brigades in these two towns.

 

Industrial and Chemical Accidents

Ahmednagar has 7 M.I.D.C. estates. However, the number of factories either handling/storing /manufacturing hazardous chemicals is small. There have been only four accidents in the past which was due to negligence of the labourers and resulted in a total death toll of only four persons.

The three major areas where there is risk of Industrial Hazards are M.I.D.C.Ahmednagar, Sangamner Sahakari Audyogik Vasahat, Sangamner and Sanjiwani Sahakari Sakhar Karkhana,  Kopargaon.

M.I.D.C Ahmednagar has three large factories viz. Kirloskar Oil Engines, Sun Pharmaceuticals and Gita Organics.They receive a total of 10 tankers per  month carrying L.P.G.and chemicals like Sulphuric Acid, Toluene etc. All these three factories have their own hazard management plans and regular safety drills. Moreover there are adequate emergency facilities like hospitals and Police Station near the M.I.D.C. However there is a glaring ommission of fire fighting unit  and in the event of an emergency the nearest fire brigade is with Ahmednagar Municipal Council about 5 kms away. Earlier the M.I.D.C. area was far from the city but due to rapid urbanisation there has been a spurt in settlements around the industries. The population in these settlements is  highly vulnerable in case of major emergencies like explosion within the industrial area. Moreover the first aid facilities available with the hospitals near the M.I.D.C. may not be adequate enough to deal with such large scale emergencies.

Within the Sangamner Sahakari Audyogik Vasahat there are two industries Mangalam Organics and Mangalam Inorganics handling hazardous chemicals. In both these Units the workers are trained in fire fighting and they have there own Medical Officer for emergency first aid. There is a fire brigade at Sangamner and also large number of private hospitals and ambulances.

The Sanjiwani Sahakari Sakhar Karkhana in Kopargaon Taluka manufactures Sugar and alcohol and there is sufficient storage of hazardous chemicals like nitric acid, sulphuric acid, benzene, ammonia, acetaldehyde. The workers are trained and the factory has their own medical Officer. A Fire brigade is attached to the Kopargaon Municipal Council.


 

Cyclones

Ahmednagar district has not experienced any major Cyclones. The district’s degree of proneness to Cyclones is low.

In October, November there were heavy Cyclones in Andhra State. The reflections of these Cyclones  were experienced in Ahmednagar district. 79 Villages were affected due to these Cyclones. 4 persons died and 11 were injured. The Taluka-wise information is as under.

Annexure  I - Case Studies On Disaster Episodes

The following incidents illustrate the kind of disasters faced by Ahmednagar district  in the past. The detailed case studies are as under.:-

Earthquake

Episode 1

On 30-9-1993 the earthquake which struck Killari in Latur District was felt in Ahmednagar District also. In Newasa Taluka. Two daughters of Shri Dattatray Nivruti Chintamani were killed due to wall collapse. The names of daughters  were (1) Kumari Savita Dattatray Chintamani age 11 years and (2) Kumari Lalita alias Renuka Dattatray Chintamani age 6 years. His son Krishna Dattatray Chintamani age 3 years was seriously injured due to the accident and was admitted in Saint Lukes Hospital in Shrirampur. He was further admitted in the Civil Hospital Ahmednagar and was finally discharged from the hospital on 25-11-93.

The Tahasildar Newasa paid the amount of Rs. 1,500/ immediately as a relief to Shri Chintamani. An amount of Rs.5,000/- was also paid from  the Chief Minister”s Relief Fund. The Non-Government Organisation has also given the assistance of Rs.1,000/- to him.

Shri Chintamani was residing in a rented buildig of Shri Vishawakumar Vishawanath Badave of Newasa city. He applied for the grant of land to the Tahasildar for permanent residential house. The Tahasildar Newasa granted the land measuring 153.9 sqms. to Shri Chintamani. But he refused to accept the land as it was not convenient to him. The Collector of Ahmednagar under his order No. RB/Desk/II-B/792/97 dated 7-10-97 has granted the land for the construction of house from gat No.149 measuring 150 sqms. under the Maharashtra Land Revenue (Disposal of Land ) Rules,1971.The loan of Rs. 25,000/- is also sanctioned by the District Collector Ahmednagar and the loan is being paid by instalments

Shri Chintamani has applied to the District Collector of Ahmednagar that the assistance given to the affected persons of Latur and Osmanabad Districts should be paid to him.The Collector of Ahmdnagar has therefore, referred the matter to the Government of Maharashtra,Revenue and Forests Department .Government of Mahashtra has sympathetically considered his request and amount of Rs. 50,000/-(deducting amount of Rs.5,000/- already paid ) was sanctioned to him by the Chief Minister’s Sachivalaya vide Letter No. CM. 1193/0550/94 dated 17-10-1994. The amount is paid to Shri Chintamani as per Government orders i.e. in the form of  Kisan Vikas Patra. The details are as under :

In 1996 in Villgage Bota in Sangamner Taluka of Ahmednagar District 95  kms. away from Ahmednagar on Nashik Pune Highway, earthquake was felt. Walls of many houses were damaged. The earthquake was mild and it resulted minor cracks without any loss of life. It is felt that there is strong possibility of the recurrence of an earthquake in this area falls on the North-South lineaments in the Kalwan area of Nashik District. Bhandardara dam is also 70 kms. from Bota village. In the past there were also some cracks to this dam. These cracks were repaired immediately with the help of foreign Engineers.
