Efforts by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) to address hazardous zones in the city’s older neighborhoods have encountered opposition from citizens, leading the PMC to seek assistance from law enforcement authorities.

In a recent survey conducted across 17 wards, the PMC identified 140 wadas, out of which 95 were classified as hazardous zones requiring intervention. Despite efforts to address these zones, challenges persist in dealing with the remaining 45 hazardous areas due to resistance from residents.

These hazardous zones pose significant risks, particularly with the impending monsoon season. Recognizing the importance of proactive measures, the PMC has been actively engaged in sanitation and drainage initiatives alongside its efforts to address hazardous constructions.

Notices have been issued to residents regarding their responsibilities in mitigating hazards, including the need to vacate hazardous zones for safety reasons. However, reluctance among some residents to evacuate persists, fueled by fears of displacement.

To address these concerns, the PMC is providing residents with area certificates, ensuring that they can return to renovated properties compliant with safety regulations. Despite these efforts, challenges remain in ensuring the safety of these zones.

The PMC emphasizes the importance of collaboration with citizens to mitigate risks effectively. As it continues its efforts to address hazardous constructions, the PMC seeks support from law enforcement authorities to overcome resistance and ensure the safety of all residents.
