Pimpri, 17th January 2024 :- In a decisive move to reclaim public spaces and ensure planned urban development, the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) conducted a rigorous anti-encroachment action recently in the B, D and E zone. 

The operation spanned from Wakad to Pimple Nilakh and extended from Jagtap dairy chowk to Bhujbal chowk in the D zone and alongside Ravet BRTS Road in the B zone, and Jai Ganesh Samrajya chowk to Alankapuram chowk in Moshi marking a significant step toward maintaining the city’s structural integrity and removal of the encroachments from public spaces.

During this week-long initiative, a total of over 4 lakh square feet of encroached land was successfully identified, demolished, and reclaimed. The action not only aims at freeing up vital areas for community use but also serves as a deterrent against unauthorized occupation of public spaces.

PCMC Commissioner Shekhar Singh, emphasizing the importance of the drive, said, “The anti-encroachment initiative is pivotal for maintaining the planned development of our city. In the public interest of the growing population of the city, it is necessary that all the major roads in the city are free of obstructions. However, the corporation was receiving complaints from citizens regarding unauthorized sheds in various parts of the city. It was observed that there are a large number of unauthorized traders’ sheds on major roads or roadsides in the city.”

Additional Commissioner Pradip Jambhale-Patil added, “This aggressive drive is proof of our commitment to creating a city that thrives on organized and sustainable growth. The encroached spaces obstruct the road and could lead to accidents. It is essential to tackle encroachment issues promptly to safeguard the interests of our citizens and uphold the city’s aesthetic and functional appeal.”

Jambhale-Patil said that similar aggressive anti-encroachment drives will be conducted across the rest of the zonal offices in the coming months. This comprehensive approach reflects the municipality’s dedication to maintaining a clean and organized urban landscape for the benefit of its residents.
