As per information, 11 villages were included in the municipal limits in 2017. Its intention was announced by the administration in 2018. The municipal corporation was given a two-year term to prepare the development plan and ask for objections and suggestions. However, due to the code of conduct of three elections and Corona pandemic, the PMC could not make the plan within the prescribed time frame.

Earlier, the PMC asked for time up to June 25 2022; However, the plan was not released during this period as well. Therefore, the municipal administration has now asked for an extension till March 1, 2024, and the proposal has been placed before the City Improvement Committee for approval.

Pune Pulse tried to contact the relevant PMC officials but couldn’t connect till the report was filed.
