This will definitely bring Pimpri Chinchwad in the most cleanest and liveable city’s index in the top position.
PCMC has formed 32 teams for 32 wards wherein these teams will tackle with the encroachments regarding hoardings, flexes, illegal construction, etc. put up by various agencies without any proper permission from the sky sign department and building construction department. Separate arrangement of vehicles shall be made for these teams which will work in two shifts -7.30 am to 2.30 pm and 2.30 pm to 9.30 pm. These teams will constantly patrol the area assigned to them and take action against those defacing the city.
The whole exercise to bring these teams is to make Pimpri Chinchwad a truly liveable city. These teams will rehabilitate the hawkers into a hawkers zone further clearing off footpaths which are being occupied several unauthorised hawkers.
Vikas Dhakne, while addressing the meeting said that in the next two months, both the officials as well as PCMC Staff will jointly carry out this acitivity.
