On Friday, the long-standing problem of toxic smoke rising from burning trash in KaIyani nagar continued for the fourth day in a row, severely distressing the residents along South Avenue Road in the affluent neighborhood.

Residents reaffirmed that the smoke and fumes rising from smoldering trash along the riverbank in the area and surrounding localities are causing serious air pollution, raising concerns for everyone who is in close proximity to the hazard.

More than 100 tickets were issued by Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) on Friday as a result of the numerous complaints that concerned citizens filed with the civic organization.

A local claimed that at two in the morning, smoke started to enter her home. The smell woke her up, and it was too much to handle.

Another local claimed that the widespread and unrelenting burning of trash is seriously polluting the area and endangering the health of the people living there. The careless burning of trash in the neighborhood has turned into a daily event, putting them in great discomfort and filling the air with toxic fumes. This practice aggravates respiratory disorders and other health concerns in susceptible groups, such as children and the elderly, in addition to adding to air pollution.

Another resident reported that although they could still smell smoke inside their homes on Friday, it did not appear to be as thick as it had been two days earlier. They feel confined to this way of life and helpless.

Severe action against the offenders would be taken, a senior PMC official promised.

The PMC representative dispatched a team of officials to the location to address the problem after learning about it.

After attempting to put out the fire at the location for the previous four days, according to another PMC official, there has been no letup in the fighting. They acted quickly and excavated the waste pits after receiving a call on Friday afternoon from senior PMC officials. They put out the flames from the roots with the aid of water and fire tenders. They’re hoping it’s now under control.
