Dialysis centers coming to Narola and Vastral
To enhance healthcare access, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) is gearing up to establish dialysis centers in the North and East Zones, specifically in Narola and Vastral. These facilities will be developed through a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.
Each center will feature five beds and will be staffed with a skilled technician, a nephrologist, and other specialized professionals, adhering to rigorous guidelines. Furthermore, holders of the Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojana cards can also benefit from travel cost reimbursements when seeking treatment at these centers.
8 AM to 10 PM ban on bus operations within city continues
To maintain traffic flow and ensure the safety of motorists, the entry of passenger vehicles and buses within the city remains restricted between 8 am and 10 pm. In response to this regulation, bus drivers filed a plea to lift the ban as it was adversely impacting their operations.
However, the Gujarat High Court has, as of Tuesday, rejected this plea, choosing to uphold the ban in the interest of public safety.
Strict action against non-compliant food stalls during Navratri festival
The ongoing Navratri festival has sparked a surge in the food business, with late-night street food stalls and eateries witnessing a remarkable influx of patrons.

To address this issue, the department has issued a total of 40 notices to food stalls operating at popular venues. In a bid to ensure public health and safety, authorities are planning to intensify their inspection efforts. Any food units found lacking in meeting the specified requirements may face legal closure or other fines.
