“A meeting with the state minister for urban development, Eaknath Shinde, was held recently. A proposal regarding regularisation was approved and orders were issued accordingly. The civic body will start implementing this scheme from the next week,” Prithviraj Sutar, the leader of Shiv Sena in the PMC, said.
A delegation of Sena leaders met the minister in Mumbai earlier this week. They raised the pending civic issues with him. Sutar said according to the earlier policy, TDR could be used for construction along six-metre roads. It should be restarted. Many small property owners would benefit from the move. It was a key demand of the delegation, he said.
He said the existing rules giving priority to local residents must be followed strictly during the recruitment process for the Metro rail project. A meeting regarding a recruitment drive would be conducted next week. The demand for implementing the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations for the civic employees was also raised.
