“The district administration had demanded that financial compensation should be given for giving these properties. But PMC has not approved the demand. The issue was discussed at the meeting held by deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar,” said Vikram Kumar commissioner of PMC, while speaking at the general body meeting.
The elected members across the party line demanded the status of the development plan and work being carried out into the merged villages at the meeting.
The PMC has become the biggest municipal corporation in Maharashtra after the inclusion of these villages in July. The PMC limits have increased to 518.77 sq km after this merger.
The development plan (DP) for 23 merged in PMC’s jurisdiction will be drafted by PMRDA. The state government had issued a notification regarding it. The population of PMC areas went up by 4 lakhs after this merger.
