Pune to bypass Mumbai and develop on the lines of London and Singapore

Mumbai is not among the five cities Pune wants to emulate as it plans its development. A group set up to frame Development Control (DC) rules for Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) will study Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and the two foreign cities.

“The existing DC rules are complicated and need to be simplified. We also need to incorporate features that suit the city,” Municipal Commissioner Praveensinh Pardeshi told The Indian Express.

“The five cities will be studied and the best of their bylaws will be integrated in the new exclusive DC rules of PMC,” Vikas Bhandari, an architect member of the DC rule group, said.

The existing DC rules of PMC were drafted in 1976 and sanctioned in 1987, he said. When they were framed, buildings were only three storeys high; today the city is waiting for 40-storey structures. “The city has changed a lot since then and the old rules have become redundant,” said Bhandari.

Technology too has changed with time. The PMC wants to incorporate new building methods in the development process, the architect said.
