Illegal constructions in Anandnagar, Vishrantinagar and Mahadevnagar, areas of Hingane Khurd and Wadgaon:Seeking action against illegal constructions on lands identified for bio-diversity parks, activists of the Green Pune Movement have urged the Pune Municipal Corporation to step in to curb the illegal constructions.
Talking to reporters former mayor Vandana Chavan and Anita Benninger of GPM said,
"Illegal construction activities are going on in large-scale, despite the draft development plan for the 23 villages merged in PMC limits, proposing BDPs in these areas."The draft DP for the 23 merged villages has recommended reservation of 1,600 hectares for the BDP. The PMC will have to acquire 978 hectares for the purpose. When the PMC approved the DP in 2005, the estimated cost of land acquisition was around Rs 500 crore, which has now risen to Rs 905 crore.
According to the civic body, Rs 655 crore will be needed to purchase the land, while another Rs 250 crore will be needed to prevent encroachments taking place on the same. The civic body, however, has no plans in place to raise the funds.
