DMRC starts tunnelling
work at Naraina Vihar
New Delhi: Work on one of the new corridors of
the Delhi Metro’s Phase III has speeded up with
the tunneling near Naraina Vihar starting from
Monday. The corridor is the Majlis Park (Mukundpur) to Shiv Vihar line.
“DMRC has started underground tunneling
near Naraina Vihar on the Ring Road Metro
stretch which is approximately 2.2km long,” said
a spokesperson for the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). The statement comes amidst fears
that delays in the phase III could have an impact
on the deadline for the corridors. Phase III will
have two new corridors—Mukundpur to Shiv Vihar and Janakpuri (west) to Botanical Garden.
The stretch is between Mayapuri and Delhi Cantonment and the tunnel will be 1,103m long. “The
soil profile of the area is mixed with quartzite
rock and silt soil, and therefore, the Tunnel Boring Machine mobilized for the work is capable of
tunneling in soil as well as rock and has a special
mixed cutter head,” he added. TNN

Acclaimed sculptor
passes away at 65
Neelam.Raaj@timesgroup.com

New Delhi: Acclaimed Indian
sculptor Mrinalini Mukherjee
passed away in the capital on
Monday evening after a brief
illness. The daughter of seminal Santiniketan artists Benode Behari and Leela Mukherjee, the 65-year-old was highly
regarded for her knotted hemp
rope sculptures.
It's a medium very few Indian artists have worked with. It
caught her eye at a crafts mela
while she was doing a diploma
in mural design at Vadodara's
MS University. The initial
works were very tentative but
slowly the rope came off the
wall, and the figures took a life
of their own. The death of her
mother in 2003 prompted a shift
to another medium. "It was as if
the knots were tying me down,''
she told TOI in an interview in
2010. Mukherjee moved to wax,
clay, ceramic and then bronze —
all materials she preferred to
synthetic polymers and fibre
glass. Growing up in Dehradun
gave her a love of the outdoors
and though her medium
changed several times, the organic life of plants remained a
dominant theme in her art. In
her early works with rope, Mukherjee created large landscapes
like Waterfall as well as smaller
pieces like Amaltash, Sunflowers, Date Palm and Cactus.
There were also forest clusters
called Vriksha-Nat or Arboreal

Enactment.
The flora also took on sensuous and anthropomorphic interpretations complete with human features and phalluses in
knotted life-size forms like Purush and Prithvi.
Three of her works were displayed at the Sydney Biennale
in 1986, making Mukherjee the
first Indian artist to show at the
prestigious event. Quite amazing for someone who didn't
want to be an artist, and was always untouched by the art market hype. "I wanted to be a doctor
or a chartered accountant. All
the artists my parents knew in
Santiniketan were poor. Even
my parents didn't make a living
from art," the artist who was
known as Dillu had told TOI. A
major retrospective of her work
opened at the National Gallery
of Modern Art on Jan 27 but
Mukherjee had to be hospitalized the day before. The cremation will be at 3pm at Lodhi Road
crematorium on Wednesday.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2015

New Delhi: If you’re looking to
buy a flat in the interiors of Noida or in Greater Noida, here’s
some good news. Delhi Metro is
extending its existing DwarkaNoida City Center corridor till
Sector 62 and, thereafter, to Greater Noida. The Sector 52 station
will be an interchange station
for another Metro line planned
for Greater Noida.
The alignment of the Noida
City Center extension till Sector
62—a distance of 6.6km—will
connect Noida with the heart of
Delhi. One of the longest corridors in the Delhi Metro network,
the extension will pass through
sectors 34, 51, 59 and 62 to Electronic City.
The proposed extension will
start from the dead end of the existing Noida City Center station
and run straight along the
median of Captain Shashi Kant
Marg for about 2.2km before taking a left turn near Sector 52. It
will run straight on the median
of road leading to Sector 62 and
along NH-24 for about 4.5km.
“While taking the left turn
from Captain Shashi Kant Marg
towards Electronic City, it has
been kept in view that there will
be a need in the future to have
grade separator arrangement
(with clover leaves) at this crossing,” said a Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) official.

from dead end of Noida City
Center station to the planned
dead end near NH-24 is 6.675km.
In Noida, the existing corridor
has stations in sectors 15, 16 and
18, Botanical Garden, Golf
Course and Noida City Center.
“Botanical Garden station is
planned as an interchange station for the Janakpuri-Botanical
Garden line of Ph-III,” the offi-

cial added. This corridor will be
36km long with over 20 stations.
It is one of the two corridors
coming up in Phase III of the network.
The extension to Electronic
City and beyond is expected to
give a boost to the connectivity
in NCR. What makes the alignment exciting, according to Delhi Metro, is the plan to have Noi-

da Sector 52 as an interchange
station for the Metro line
planned for Greater Noida.
“The recommended network
in the ‘Revised Metro Plan for
2021’ prepared by DMRC totalled
a length of 413.83km, comprising Delhi and adjoining parts of
NCR, and was slated for completion latest by 2021 in phases,”
said the Metro spokesperson.

Under fire, Uber looks for
new ways to woo customers
TIMES NEWS NETWORK

New Delhi: With the Delhi
government coming down
heavily on Uber and other appbased taxi services for violating transport regulations,
these companies are looking
to woo back customers. On
Monday, Uber announced a
doubling of its bonus “referral” points—from Rs 300 to Rs
600—for registered users who
recommend the service to others. It also claimed it had
signed on a vendor to undertake a separate driver verification process of its driver
pool.

The driver verification by
the vendor, which will now be
undertaken for its pool of
drivers who have signed on
with Uber, comes as an ‘extra’
level of safety feature, said Uber representatives. It includes

address verification as well as
local and national search of
criminal database for verifying the antecedents of the
driver partner. Uber, however,
refused to divulge the results
of the pilot project on driver
verification that had been un-

dertaken by the vendor already for the company.
Meanwhile, in an effort to
ramp up its customer base, the
company also announced a
‘doubling’ of the referral
points that it gives to users
who recommend its services.
For every recommendation,
Uber promises a bonus point
of Rs 300. This has been doubled to Rs 600 now. The mail,
which was sent out to registered users on Monday, said,
“You receive Rs 600 of Uber
credit for every friend that
takes a ride before 11:59pm IST
on Sunday, February 8, 2015.”

Fire at ATM,
no casualty
New Delhi: A fire broke out at
a Punjab National Bank ATM
in southeast Delhi’s Tughlaqabad Extension. No casualty
was reported.
The incident was reported
around 7.30am. Three fire tenders were rushed to the spot.
The blaze was brought under
control in an hour. The ATM
machine is just beside the
bank. The fire was doused before it could spread to the
bank. But the generator outside the bank was gutted. The
guard, who was at the ATM at
that time, noticed the flames
and called police. He also
helped to control the blaze by
pouring buckets of water. TNN
