Subject-Recovery of loss of revenue from GMB for rent and development charge for Alang plots

Sir,

In pursuance of my earlier communications this is to draw your attention towards the actual length of the plot on Alang beach, Bhavnagar, Gujarat which is allotted to ship breakers on rent, which leads to loss of revenue to the government.

I submit that all plots are much more than breath of the various sites X 45 m standard. The rent and development charge is being charged for 45 m standard only although the sites are double and triple the size of 45 m length. (development charge- Rs 200/meter/year, rent-Rs 60/m/year) 

I submit that there is no justification for such mistake. The officials of Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB) should be held accountable and liable and the loss of revenue must be recovered at the earliest.

ToxicsWatch Alliance (TWA) has been working on the issue of shipbreaking for several years and has been an applicant in the Hon'ble Supreme Court and is currently pursuing a related case in the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC).


Thanking You


Yours faithfully

Sir,

This is to draw your attention towards the actual length of the plot on Alang beach, Bhavnagar, Gujarat which is allotted to ship breakers on rent, which leads to loss of revenue to the government.

I submit that almost of all plots are much more than breath of the various sites X 45 m standard. The rent and development charge is being charged for 45 m standard only although the sites are double and triple the size of 45 m length. (development charge- Rs 200/meter/year, rent-Rs 60/m/year)

I submit that there is no justification for such mistake. The officials of Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB) should be held accountable and liable and the loss of revenue must be recovered at the earliest.
