Temporary suspension of boating and water activities on Riverfront
The Sabarmati Riverfront Development Corporation Limited (SRFDCL) has made the decision to temporarily suspend all boating, water riding, and kayaking activities along the Sabarmati Riverfront. This measure comes in response to the Vadodara boat tragedy, which resulted in the unfortunate loss of 14 lives.
Authorities in Ahmedabad are taking steps to prevent a similar mishap by instructing operators to ensure compliance with necessary permits. Until the operators fulfill the required documentation, the suspension of activities will remain in effect.
AMC allocates Rs 1 crore to tackle rat infestation in Walled City
Residents of the Walled City in Ahmedabad have been grappling with a surge in rat infestation, prompting the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) to allocate Rs 1 crore for a comprehensive solution.
The AMC plans to address the issue by covering congested alleys with reinforced cement concrete, replacing existing red stone carpeting that facilitates rat burrowing. The initiative will commence in areas such as Jamalpur, Mirzapur, Khanpur, and Shahpur, where the installation of RCC roads is expected to mitigate the rat infestation problem.

This specialized clinic is equipped to address a wide spectrum of serious liver conditions, including portal hypertension, bile duct cancer, liver failure, gallbladder cancer, and liver anomalies affecting both adults and children.
