On Monday, January 22, PMRDA commissioner Rahul Mahiwal announced that he had placed 20 of the 50 proposals that were received last week on hold since the developers had not provided a clear source of water for the projects.

According to the PMRDA commissioner, these proposals won’t be approved until the water source is clarified. The more than 200 building proposals that have been received in the past two months are being examined. The process will start in February and each proposal will be followed by a site visit.

These projects are situated in the Pune district’s Maval, Mulshi, and Haveli talukas, which are experiencing a boom in building activity.

As per the directives issued by Divisional Commissioner Saurabh Rao last week, the checks have been started. Rao had instructed the PMRDA and municipal commissioners of Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad not to permit construction work until the builders had disclosed the sources of water they planned to supply to the property owners.

The PMRDA commissioner went on to say that every proposal will be considered separately. If no one is living in the complex yet, permissions will be revoked. They will look for the water sources that the developer promised.

The building permission department officials announced that a review of the permissions granted on the basis of the builders’ affidavits and the gram panchayat NOC would take place.

When granting building permissions, the divisional commissioner had instructed PMRDA to consider more information than just the developers’ affidavits regarding water provision. Last Monday, the divisional commissioner invited the public to express their concerns regarding the water supply, per the directives of the Bombay High Court.

The PMRDA, which oversees more than 800 villages, two municipal corporations, seven municipal councils, and three cantonment boards, has sprung into action and decided to carefully examine the construction projects it has approved.

Speaking to Pune Pulse, Adv Satya Muley said, “PMRDA puts on hold 20 proposals of developers for new construction until there is clarity on source and supply of water to these projects is a welcoming move. Builders affidavits shall not be relied upon any more. Builders affidavits taken by local bodies are a mechanism which fools the flat purchasers.”
