NIBM Annexe is a newly developed area which is devoid of many civic amenities. The first and foremost is the lack of PMC water supply, in spite of paying property tax to the tune of about 6 Cr per annum, residents have to spend a huge amount on water tankers. A number of petitions were given to PMC and agitations were conducted. After a lot of persuasion by APRF and efforts of Sainath Babar, City Chief of MNS and Rohan Gaikwad, finally the water connection from an alternate source is established.


To celebrate this success, a “Jal-Pujan” ceremony was organised by APRF on 19 May 2024 at Raheja Circle. It was attended by more than 250 residents of all the member Societies in spite of heavy rains. Lt Col (Dr) Sanjay Borse (Retd), Vice President of APRF spoke about the origin and history of APRF.


Anandvan Parisar Residents Foundation (APRF) is a registered forum of 31 Housing Societies of NIBM Annexe area, with the aim of projecting and resolving the common local civic issues of residents of this Parisar.


Tara Singh (Retd Scientist DRDO), President of APRF addressed passionately about the efforts of APRF to bring to the notice issues faced by residents, the achievements of APRF and the struggle to achieve it involving Dharna, Sit-in protests at PMC, etc.


In his speech Sainath Babar congratulated the members of APRF for their struggle and showing unity to address the issues faced by them in the area and promised to co-operate in all possible manner with APRF to resolve remaining issues of traffic, roads, law and order and the permanent water connection by operationaling 3 huge water tanks opp: Dorabjee Mall, in future.

Rohan Gaikwad also highlighted the civic issues faced by the residents and to interact through his fellowship meetings in future also to resolve the problems.
