Administration in Haldwani

Haldwani, in the recent years, has developed quite a lot and is attracting tourists more than anything. Haldwani is divided in to 25 wards and these 25 wards are further divided into 65 municipal ward sanitation committees. From Municipal Corporations to Police Stations, from Civil Courts to Income Tax Department, the administration is working well and is helping in making the city of Haldwani a much better and developed city. Some of the Administrative offices and corporations in this city of Uttarakhand are:

Haldwani Nagar Nigam

Nagar Nigam in Haldwani

Nagar Nigam, ever since its establishment in the city has changed the very face of how administration is run. It has been ranked as a ‘first-class’ Municipal Corporation. All the 25 wards and the 65 sub-wards come under the Nagar Nigam and for the development of which the Nagar Nigam is fully responsible. Public Health, Public safety, Development activities etc. are all part of the responsibilities that the Nagar Nigam of Haldwani has to undertake.

According to the 2011 Census, the total population of Haldwani was 1,56,060. The entire population is the responsibility of this Municipal Corporation. The paper work is also important and Nagar Nigam also deals with Birth and Death Certificates and the registration for the same.

‘Clean and Green Haldwani’ is a campaign that was launched by the District administration and basically encourages people, schools, traders, public and private sectors etc. to plant more trees. The good work that they are doing does not stop here. In addition to this, the local administration strictly deals with people who are found polluting or defacing public properties and the environment of the city. People found doing such things are fined and an FIR is lodged against them. Before the ‘Clean and Green Halwani’ campaign was launched, debris and wastes from parks and other places of the city were disposed off by the officials of Nagar Nigam. The Motto of this campaign is to spread awareness of the importance of hygiene and cleanliness in life. Many schools and private sectors have involved themselves in this campaign and are supporting this great cause. Various competitions like painting and essay writing are also organized to promote this campaign. You can also see various banners and posters all around the city to create awareness for the same. It is nice to see that the local forest department has planned to plant different variety of plants in the city and that too free of cost.

Furthermore, Haldwani Municipal Corporation is working on the problems being faced by the people of the city like water supply and electricity supply. It is planning on projects like complexes, community schemes, welfare, parks, road network and civic amenities. Established on 21st September 1942, the Haldwani-kathgodam Municipal Council, as per population, is the second largest Municipal Council of Uttrakhand, after Haridwar.

Jails in Haldwani

With such a strong police force in the city, crime has reduced considerably. It has not disappeared though, because all the criminals have been locked up in the one and only jail of Haldwani, which is the Haldwani Central Jail. This Jail has been there since the time the Britishers were in India and is said to have a capacity of holding 250 inmates. This jail, at present, is holding more than 850 inmates.

Built in 1906, this jail was first sanctioned to hold a maximum of 71 inmates. Now it has been developed to hold 250 inmates. Criminals from the neighboring city of Udhamsinghnagar are also being brought here in this jail as there is no jail in Udhamsinghnagar. Almost 90 percent of the inmates in this jail are from Udhamsinghnagar. A good infrastructure in setting up a jail in Udhamsinghnagar would help in reducing the over-occupancy of the Haldwani jail.

Even though the Jail has developed since 1906 till now, and the number of inmates has grown from the original 71 to more than 850, the shocking thing to note is that the man-power of this jail is still the same as it should be for 71 inmates. With the increase in the number of inmates, without the increase in manpower has led to the cancellation of many reform programs for inmates, which could have helped a lot of inmates get back on their feet. The only reform program that was held for the inmates of this jail was done by Vedanta Foundation, which set up a Computer Training Center at Haldwani Jail. This was the third Computer Training Center that was set up by the Vedanta Foundation in Uttarakhand. It also conducts placement drives in the prisons. This program is known as ‘Umeed’. More than 100 inmates have been placed till now and more than 20,000 inmates have been given training so far.

    There is no management of waste. People of my village throw the garbage either in the canals or beside a barren land. This causes a lot of pollution. Please do send a van to collect the waste for different houses.

    Hello Main haldwani banbhulpura ka nivasi hu. Me yaha hone wali kuch pareshani ke bare me btana chahta hu. Me line no. 17 azad nagar banbhulpura , haldwani me girls inter college ke pass rehta hu. Line no. 17 ki road ki chaudai bhut jayada he. Par yaha ke kuch logo ne road kabja kar rakhi he. Dukan ke age ki jagah ko vo apni dukan ke kaam me lete. Aur fir jo log dukan me bike ya car se ate he. Vo log dukan ke age gadi karte he. Kabhi kabhi puri road band ho jati he. Road pe jagah na hone pe vo dusro ke ghar ke age gadi karte he. Jisse ane jane me dikkat hoti he. Fir logo me ladai jagda hota he. Road ki chaudai 60 ft tak hogi. Par logo ne apni dukan itni age bada li he ki yaha chalna muskil hota he. Girls enter college ke pass kuch dukane dair raat 1bje tak khuli rehti he. Iski wajah se shoor sharaba macha rehta he. App logo ne kai bar atikraman kiya par inlogo pe koi farak nahi padta. Dusre din se fir dukan age bada lete he. Me apse reqest karta hu ki app please yaha ao or atikraman kar sub dukano ko hatao or ghar ke age footpath banvao or dukan walo ko notice do ki vo log footpath se age na bade. Agar footpath nahi banava pao to. Sub logo ko notice jarur do aur chalan kato. Please meri pareshani ko jarur suno. Or mere sath yaha ke sabhi logo ki madat karo.
