The plan to expand the Mumbai-Bengaluru Highway has gained momentum as the 12-meter widening project targets the stretch between Kivale and Wakad. In a bid to facilitate this development, a process of land acquisition will be initiated, with affected individuals being compensated through Transferable Development Rights (TDR) and Floor Space Index (FSI) allocations.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has granted approval for the creation of a 12-meter road along this critical route. Land procurement for the project will be conducted from Pune Municipal Corporation’s (PMC) development plan, subsequently handed over to NHAI for execution. The highway traverses through key localities such as Wakad, Tathavade, Punawale, Ravet, Mamurdi, and Kivale. The collector’s office will oversee the land acquisition process for the construction of the 12-meter service road.

To ensure equitable compensation, affected individuals are encouraged to submit their applications, specifically forms “A” and “B,” to the Corporation. In return for these submissions, the Corporation will grant advanced possession to the landowners, facilitated by the allocation of TDR and FSI, as outlined in the Integrated Development Control and Promotion Rules.

However, it’s important to note that if prevailing land acquisition laws permit, TDR and FSI may not be the exclusive compensation options available to landowners. In such instances, cash compensation in line with the Land Acquisition Act will be provided by the Corporation.

This comprehensive initiative holds the potential to not only enhance the highway’s infrastructure but also contribute to improved connectivity and ease of travel for the region’s residents and commuters.
