In a recent announcement, the Maharashtra government declared Rajendra Bhosale, an IAS officer from the 2008 batch, the fresh face to lead the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC). This decision, revealed on Friday, arrives just a day before the Lok Sabha election dates are due to be disclosed.

Bhosale replaces Vikram Kumar, who has been appointed as additional metropolitan commissioner of MMRDA.

Previously, Bhosale served as the district collector of Mumbai Suburban since February last year. His portfolio boasts experiences such as being the chief executive officer of the Sangli Zilla Parishad and holding district collector roles in Ahmednagar and Solapur. Additionally, he spent eight months in 2020 as the Additional Divisional Commissioner of the Pune division.

Vikram Kumar, an IAS officer from the 2004 batch, took on the mantle of PMC commissioner in July 2020 before transitioning to administrator on March 15, 2022. His stint at PMC followed his service as the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) commissioner.

The recent spate of appointments by the state government includes Amitesh Kumar succeeding Reetesh Kumar as the new Pune Police Commissioner, Suhas Diwase taking over from Rajesh Deshmukh as the district collector of Pune, and Chandrashekhar Pulkundwar assuming the role previously held by Saurabh Rao as the Divisional Commissioner.
