Here are City Spidey's five picks from the National Capital Region (NCR):


Revised rules sought for renting out community centres: Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Associations (FONRWA) has approached the Noida Authority with an appeal to rein in the community centres which charge exorbitantly high amounts for renting them out. The federation asked the authority to revise rules and regulations for renting out the community centres. The move came in the wake of complaints from the residents that community centres have been charging randomly,

A barricade to ensure smooth traffic flow: The Noida Authority and the traffic police have put up a barricade to demarcate the alternate route between Electronic City Chowk and NH 24. Commuters had been complaining that in the absence of a barricade, the route, created to reduce traffic from the main road between Sector 62 and NH 24, was, in fact, causing traffic snarls. The move is expected to ensure smooth vehicular movement.


Alert staff save the day for school: A major tragedy was averted when fire broke out inside the auditorium of KDB Public School in Kavi Nagar, thanks to timely action by alert school staff. No casualty was reported in the incident that took place on Monday morning when 200-odd students and teachers were inside the school auditorium. Smelling something burning the staff realised it was a short circuit and alerted the fire department. Before the arrival of fire personnel, they quietly vacated the auditorium, disrupted power supply and used fire extinguishers to douse flames.

Flyover construction likely to begin next month: Construction for two flyovers, one at the Raj Nagar Extension Crossing along Ghaziabad-Meerut Road, which was earlier a part of NH-58, and another at the Vasundhara Traffic Signal on the Vaishali-Mohan Nagar Link Road, is expected to begin next month. Design work for the flyovers is near completion.

Call record leads cops to murder suspects: Hours after a dead body was found in a jungle in Mainapur on Monday, police arrested two youths for alleged abduction and murder of a 24-year-old man. The victim was identified as Dharampal, a mason from Nandgram, Ghaziabad. The police zeroed in on the suspects, Kapil, 21, and Vishnu, 19, on the basis of call detail records of Dharampal's mobile phone.
