Illegal constructions on 22,000 sqft area have been razed at Yewalewadi. The civic administration has also planned to extend the drive in the recently merged 23 villages.
The PMC has intensified action against illegal constructions and encroachments across civic limits. The action was stopped due to the pandemic and backlash against an anti-encroachment drive along Ambil Odha. The civic body has also launched a drive against illegal hoardings and banners.
“We have deployed staff at the ward level to take action on a daily basis,” said Kunal Khemnar, additional commissioner, the PMC.
