PMC drafts new policy to facilitate land acquisition for setting up waste processing plants

Faced with several problems in acquiring land outside the city limits for setting up waste processing plants, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has come up with a new compensation policy for landowners and those affected by the projects.
The policy, which has been approved by the PMC general body last week, will be sent to the state government for final approval.

Setting up new waste processing units is one of the priorities for the PMC since the Phursungi and Urali villagers have set a December deadline to stop dumping of waste at the land-fill site in their villages.

The PMC was planning to acquire at least four sites for the last six months, but it has not had any breakthrough in any of the cases.

The civic body has gathered that the people refuse to yield their land because they the fear that the area would face problems like those faced by Phursungi. Many attempts to acquire land have not been successful since the residents of the area agitated against such projects.

A senior civic official, however, said that the citizens failed to understand that these sites are not for dumping grounds but for processing plants, which won't be a nuisance.
