The Pavana river bank has been witnessing a gathering of vehicles like tracks, tractors, dumpers, tempo, and mixer trains from various parts of the Pimpri-Chinchwad municipal corporation. This influx has led to complaints about air pollution, prompting action from the Environment Department.

Taking direct action, the Environment Department of the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) set a trap and caught nine vehicles belonging to Shiva Rathod, Umesh Barane, Vedant Desai, RD Vaghele, Tejas Ukke, Prakash Chaudhary, and Kantilal Pawar. These vehicles were found filling the river bed, contributing to environmental degradation.
As a result, fine of Rs.25,000 per vehicle was collected from the defaulters.
The decisive action was carried out under the guidance of Sanjay Kulkarni, Associate City Engineer of the Environment Department, with Health Inspector Amol Gorkhe, Gorakshnath Karpe, Engineer Swapnil Patil, and Pushparaj Bhagwat playing crucial roles in the operation.


According to Sanjay Kulkarni, Joint City Engineer, Environment Department, PCMC, “We have confiscated all the vehicles causing harm and filling the riverbed. Moreover, a fine of Rs.25,000 was imposed on each vehicle.”
He further requested people not to dump in riverbeds and make them dirty. If such violations are seen to be taking place, a Police complaint will be lodged against the same and action will be taken.
By addressing such issues promptly, the Environment Department aims to safeguard the well-being of both people and the environment for a sustainable future.
