Mumbai: The Maharashtra cabinet on Tuesday cleared the proposal to carve out a separate Pimpri-Chinchwad Police commissionerate from the existing Pune police commissionerate, with an aim to tackle the growing population, urbanisation, industrialisation, number of motor vehicles, political constituencies and increasing number of complaints. “Pimpri-Chinchwad has grown immensely in recent years. In addition, it hosts a large number of industries, IT companies in areas like Hinjewadi, and colleges. With constant influx of labourers from across the country in all industries, it has been observed that crime rate too is increasing,” said Girish Bapat, Guardian minister of Pune district. “The new arrangement will help in quick response to the crimes reported and maintain the law and order situation,” he said. The proposed commissionerate will have 15 police stations, namely Nigdi, Pimpri, Chinchwad, Bhosri, Bhosri MIDC, Wakad, Hinjewadi, Sangavi, Dighi and Chikhli from the urban areas while Chakan, Alandi, Dehuroad, Talegaon-Dabhade and Talegaon MIDC from rural part. It will cater to a population of around 22 to 23 lakh. On administrative front, the new commissionerate will require creation of 2,633 posts, which will be undertaken in three stages. For the first stage ₹107.72 crore will be spent on creation of 1,568 posts while ₹24.04 crore will be for office use ,and ₹188.83 crore for construction of residence. “We will require land of around 100 acres to set up a new office building, search for which has begun. The entire process would take a month or two,” said Mr. Bapat.

Mediafinder has released its first quarter report on magazine launches and closures. This year is shaping up better than the previous year, as 45 print magazines launched in 2014 verses 27 in 2013.There is some bad news, however. Closures this year outpaced 2013, with 14 versus 9. Still, that equals a two-year net market gain of 48 new (or revived) titles in Q1.Breaking it down further, 36 of the launches this year are consumer-facing titles and 9 are in the b-to-b space. But all 14 closures this year are consumer titles.In 2009 there was a net market loss of more than 120 titles over the entire year, and things looked bleak. However, the industry is clearly rebounding–with stable net gains since 2010.
