From the Regional Passport Office's half-day holiday on January 22nd to the rescheduling of Ahmedabad-Delhi flights due to Republic Day preparations to the temporary suspension of boating and water sports at Sabarmati Riverfront and more. Catch up with the latest updates of the city through this Ahmedabad News Roundup.
To commemorate the Pran Pratishtha Mahotsav at Ayodhya Temple, the government has declared a half-day holiday for all central government offices. The Ahmedabad Regional Passport Office will be closed until 2:30 PM on January 22nd.
Consequently, individuals with appointments in the first half of Monday are required to reschedule. Applicants with inquiry appointments between 10 AM and 2:30 PM on Monday are advised to visit the passport office after 2:30 PM. All walk-in inquiries scheduled for the day have been temporarily put on hold.
A total of four flights operated by Indigo and Aaksha Airlines on the Ahmedabad-Delhi route have been rescheduled. The reason for the rescheduling is the closure of Delhi's airspace for one hour in the morning from 19 to 24 January due to rehearsals of fighter jets for the Republic Day airshow.
Based on the most recent updates, boating and water sports operations at the Sabarmati Riverfront in Ahmedabad have been temporarily halted. This decision comes in the aftermath of a distressing incident where a boat transporting students overturned in Vadodara.
If you have plans for similar activities, it is advisable to verify the current status before proceeding.
Ahmedabad is grappling with a decline in its water supply due to the combination of aging water tanks and a burgeoning population, resulting in low pressure. Responding to this issue, the Water Supply Committee has granted approval for the construction of new water tanks.
These tanks will be placed in Dudheshwar, central to the city, and Vejalpur in the western region. Notably, the proposed water tank in Vejalpur is slated to be five times larger than the current one, offering relief to over one lakh residents.
