dogs’ ward of The Bai Sakarbai Dinshaw Petit Hospital for Animals Parel (Source: Express photo by Aman Deshmukh) Top News It is not just motorists who avoid potholes during monsoons Stray animals in the city too find it hard to escape road accidents This year too the number of accidents involving animals has witnessed a hike since the onset of rains At Bai Sakarbai Dinshaw Petit Hospital for Animals in Parel 60 dogs and 25 cats all victims of hit-and-run cases are currently undergoing treatment “We have noted a 20 per cent increase in admissions due to road accidents These are all stray animals that are hit and left to bleed by motorists We mostly get calls by animal lovers from areas in Parel up till Bandra for rescue” said retired Lt Col J C Khanna the hospital’s superintendent In a single day three to four dogs are brought for treatment at the already packed seven-acre hospital that has 150 permanent staffers attached On June 23 a five-month-old stray dog was brought from Worli by an animal lover after it was hit by a car With a fracture in the right femur it cannot walk right now and will continue to remain admitted for a few more days Another puppy admitted on July 12 suffered swelling and developed a limp in the left leg after being hit by an auto-rickshaw According to a doctor dogs may take over a month to recover even in minor injuries such as fracture and bone pining Watch Video: What’s making news “We release them back when they are fit but in some serious injuries the dog may have to stay at the hospital permanently” said the doctor a medical student from Bombay Veterinary College Moti an adult Mongrel has been under treatment at the Parel hospital for four months An iron rod had to be inserted in one of its forelegs after a road accident As it drags the left foreleg while limping to the dogs ward a caretaker has to be present at all times for support According to Nilesh Bhanage founder of Plant and Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) road accident calls have increased from one during summer to over four now in Kalyan-Dombivali area “During rains stray animals find fewer options for shelter They are driven away from residential buildings where they go to hide Several stray animals in such cases wander on roads and are hit by vehicles” he said At his centre in Murbad Thane there are 12 dogs that suffered paralysis after road accidents Following heavy rains Tuesday Bhanage’s team rescued one kitten and three dogs injured in road accident Animal welfare organisations claim stray dogs and cats are left to bleed by motorists after accidents in most cases “Only sometimes passers-by will ensure they call our centre for help We are receiving 15-20 calls in a day but accidents must be much more in this season” said Sanjay Jaiswal from Karuna a bird and animals rescue organisation that operates in Parel and Malad With fewer ambulances available for stray animals delay in treatment often leads to amputation or life long paralysis according to doctors In these hospital admissions a delay of minimum 10-12 hours was observed before the animal could be medically treated “We only get injured animals from South Mumbai areas Beyond Bandra no one has time to travel and admit an animal especially those responsible for the accident With longer distances a delay in treatment has become inevitable” added Khanna He however mentioned that with rising awareness the calls to save accident hit animals had increased over the last few years [email protected] For all the latest India News download Indian Express App

the first time in seven years in a selection shocker while dropping opening batsman Matt Renshaw in a surprising Ashes squad for the series against England The Ashes begins on November 23 in Brisbane The 32-year-old Paine who played the last of his four Tests in October 2010 has been included in a 13-man squad for the opening two Tests replacing the out-of-form Matthew Wade and denying Peter Nevill a spot Strangely Paine has not been considered the first-choice wicketkeeper for his state side Tasmania with Wade donning the gloves there in the Sheffield Shield He did make a decent show of himself by scoring a half-century against England and keeping for Cricket Australia XI in a tour match in Adelaide “Tim was identified as an international player a long time ago and has always been renowned as a very good gloveman also performing well for us whenever he has represented Australia in any format” said selector Trevor Hohns “His batting form in recent outings for the Cricket Australia XI and Tasmania has been good” Pundits were quick to query the decision “(If) he’s meant to be the best keeper then you’d think at least he’d make the Tasmania one” said former Test bowler Brendon Julian “I just don’t get where that’s come from that’s just a left-field selection” ‘DEMANDING SELECTION’ Uncapped Western Australian Cameron Bancroft comes in as a replacement for Renshaw who has played 10 Tests after scoring plenty of runs in the Sheffield Shield ahead of the Ashes Renshaw’s absence comes as bit of a surprise for many with the 21-year-old not being rewarded for his solid performances in the last home summer However one could question his supposed selection given his current poor form with Queensland He smashed184 runs against Pakistan in his last Test on home soil at the Sydney Cricket Ground in January Meanwhile Bancroft scored an unbeaten 228 runs against South Australia earlier this week and was unlucky to miss out on making his Test debut in 2015 when the tour to Bangladesh was cancelled due to security reasons “We didn’t really have anyone jumping out demanding selection except for Cameron Bancroft” Hohns told reporters in Brisbane on Friday describing the squad as one of the most difficult his panel had ever picked Another surprise selection by the Australian selectors came in the form of Shaun Marsh while leaving out incumbent number six Glenn Maxwell The injury-prone Marsh 34 has been rewarded for his decent form for Western Australia However he averages a modest 36 in Test matches while never managing to hold on to his place despite multiple chances his 2011 debut against Sri Lanka Jackson Bird and the uncapped Chadd Sayers have been selected as the back-up options to the formidable pace trio of Mitchell Starc Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins With little time between the Gabba opening Test and the second Test in Adelaide to be played under lights Sayers could make his debut on home wicket to give one of the seamers some rest “It’s no secret that Chadd’s inclusion is with a view to the Adelaide test match” said Hohns “I’m not suggesting for one moment that he’ll be already included (in the match)” Squad: Steve Smith (captain)

the mean time could also imply an increase in price of flight tickets on trunk routes Related News A downward push on prices of air tickets is likely on routes between non-metro destinations with the civil aviation ministry setting in motion the ball to subsidise the cost of air travel for the common man at about Rs 2500 per flying hour under its newly conceived regional connectivity scheme (RCS) A study of air fares on non-metro routes done by The Indian Express shows incentivising airlines to fly to unconnected destinations will not only drastically cut travel time but also help bridge the fare gap with railways thereby catalysing the masses to avail of air travel options Sharat Dhall president at travel portal yatracom said “Rs 2500 is a reasonable price point There would be a lot of passenger willing to pay an additional Rs 1200-1300 over average second AC train fares to avail of the convenience of an one hour flight There will be lots of people willing to upgrade from other modes of transport This move will help catalyse growth in the air passengers market” A study of air fares available between non-metros on travel portal makemytrip show that a one-way flight ticket between Guwahati and Dibrugarh in Assam costs Rs 4228 A second AC rail ticket on the same route on Brahmputra Mail is way cheaper at Rs 1230 But while the aerial distance of 353 km is covered in 55 minutes the rail distance of 564 km incurs travel time of approximately 14 hours Share This Article Related Article “Time is of essence today particularly if there are medical emergencies or urgent meetings If the air fare is about Rs 2500 more people can afford to take flights” said Subhash Goel President Indian Association of Tour Operators (IATO) and Chairman STIC Travel Group Besides providing for affordable air travel options to the middle-class consumer the regional connectivity scheme is also expected to link up unconnected destinations “In parts of Rajasthan North-East India Madhya Pradesh there are no options to travel by rail In all such areas the RCS will help provide affordable and time-effective air travel options to the masses” added Goel There are for instance no direct trains between Amritsar-Srinagar or between Bagdogra-Guwahati (nearest station New Jalpaiguri from where there are direct trains to Guwahati); there are no direct flights available between Bhopal-Raipur Nagpur-Hyderabad on Dec 3 a day selected a month later for purpose of this study The push for air travel proposed under the regional connectivity scheme is expected to boost domestic air traffic to 300 million by 2022 from 70 million now Domestic air ticketing is expected to go up further to 500 million by 2027 Mittu Chandilya chief executive officer and managing director AirAsia India concurred “Regional connectivity small town airports will help airlines to geographically increase the footprint We see a massive opportunity for Tier 2 city airport expansions and enabling larger aircraft operating from these cities” Aviation advisory firm Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) however cautioned “Even with all the significant concessions that have been proposed a target fare of Rs 2500 for a one hour flight may not be feasible and needs to be reconsidered It is not possible to expect that this fare level can be achieved right across all aircraft types carrying from say to 9 to 100 passengers Aircraft in the 9-30 commuter category have quite different economics to 50-100 seater regional equipment Airlines operating aircraft in the 50-100 seat category have significant capital requirements CAPA estimates that a start-up venture would need to have Rs150-200 crores For this level of risk promoters would not want to be limited to charging fares of Rs 2500 which would dampen investor interest” said Kapil Kaul chief executive officer CAPA Another critical challenge he informed is that aircraft technology in the 9-30 seat category is outdated with no new aircraft programmes in the pipeline at the moment Kaul said “Building a strong commuter eco-system with outdated technology may not be realistic” The subsidy proposed on non-metro routes in the mean time could also imply an increase in price of flight tickets on trunk routes The subsidy will be funded through a two per cent levy on air fares for both domestic flights on trunk routes and on international commercial flights and is expected to generate Rs 1500 crore per annum Dhall said the increase however is not likely to be substantial enough to adversely affect traffic “A two per cent levy may roughly translate into an increase of Rs 80-100 on domestic flights Air fares this year are already lower by over 20 per cent when compared with last year on account of low fuel prices The levy is unlikely to affect traffic on metro routes” Dhall said IndiGo president Aditya Ghosh added that if the proposal to charge two per cent levy on air tickets is seen in isolation then air fares would rise “At the same time if the money collected from cess is invested back in the airport infrastructure like air traffic management and ground handling then we will definitely see fares coming down” “Besides the taxes that they are planning to reduce on the MRO side will ultimately reduce the input costs of running an airline Ultimately if it actually turns out to be right then there could be a lowering of fares” informed Ghosh As per the RCS outlined in the revised draft national civil aviation policy the government will provide viability gap funding (VGF) to airlines flying to underserved and unserved destinations to keep air fares low on regional routes The VGF will be indexed to aviation turbine fuel (ATF) prices and to inflation While the Centre would provide 80 per cent of the resources to bridge losses incurred by airlines by flying to these routes the remaining amount would have to be pitched in by the states There will be no service tax on tickets on regional flights The proposed subsidies for enhancing air connectivity would however be only offered in states which reduce VAT on ATF to one per cent or less at RCS airports “States are currently not collecting any tax at RCS airports because there are no flights to these destinations If they reduce VAT on ATF at these airports they would be earning to the extent connectivity improves to that location” Civil Aviation Secretary R N Choubey said For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related News I mean, download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Agencies
