The construction of the Police Beat Chowky outside the Heritage Garden on Cliff Avenue Road in Hiranandani, Powai has been completed and will be inaugurated on Friday, September 29th at 7 pm. Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone X) Datta Nalavde will be inaugurating this police post, which was made possible through the efforts of Chandivali Assembly MLA Dilip Lande.
Youths have been creating a nuisance on the road in the Hiranandani area particularly on Cliff Avenue. Night-time speeding of motorbikes, shouting, and drunkenness have increased in the area. Therefore, a resident of the Hiranandani Powai area, has been demanding that the police should increase their patrolling here and establish a beat post on Cliff Avenue. Finally, after three years of continuous follow-up, the Police Beat near Heritage Garden is now a reality.
The Hiranandani Powai Residents Association and the residents took the matter to the higher authorities of the Mumbai Police and demanded a permanent police beat post in the area.
On March 3, 2021, a meeting was organised at Hiranandani along with senior police officers on various issues of law and order here. Additional Commissioner of Police (Western Regional Division) Sandeep Karnik, Deputy Commissioner of Police (zone X) Maheshwar Reddy, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Sakinaka Division) Ramesh Nangre, Senior Inspector of Police (Powai Police Station) Aburao Sonawane, local MLA Dilip Lande and representatives of residents organisations were attended the meeting.
On this occasion, senior police officers had given the green signal for the approval of the Police Beat Chowky at Hiranandani and MLA Lande had promised to set up this outpost at the earliest from his funds. Finally, after three years of tireless chase, the work of this beat post has been completed, and the police personnel will perform their duty through this post from Friday.
Along with Resident Association, local residents Harish Iyer, Deepak Daryanani, Hanuman Tripathi, Priya Mohan, Sanjay Tiwari and Malbin Victor have worked hard for this.
Sanjay Tiwari, a local resident active in the effort said, “We residents of Hiranandani Powai are happy and thankful to the Mumbai Police for heeding our demand to effectively police the area. MLA Dilip Lande coordinated with the BMC and the police to speed up the process. It is hoped that this 24×7 beat-post will improve law and order in this part of Powai.”
