Pune, Khadki cantonments eligible for JNNURM funds

Pune and Khadki are among 28 cantonments in the country eligible to get funds under the Union government's Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) scheme, for implementing developmental projects.

S C Kaushik, chief executive officer, Khadki Cantonment Board (KCB) said that slum rehabilitation, development of roads and other developmental projects can be implemented under the JNNURM scheme.

Sources said that the Southern Command had sent letters in the second week of November to cantonments informing them that cantonment boards under the Cantonment Act 2006 should be deemed as a municipal corporation and should get the benefits of Union government schemes meant for social welfare, public health, hygiene, safety, water supply and urban renewal. The cantonment boards have been instructed to get in touch with the divisional commissioner/collector in this regard.

  1. Encroachment on Cantonment land and unauthorised constructions all over in Khadki cantonment board causing nuisanse and spoling the roads and causing congestion for traffic.
    The lane on the Old Jain Mandir is all full of unauthorised construction.this road is always used to carry the dead body for funeral towards the smashan ghat.it becomes difficult for people to walk with the body because of unauthorised work.also clealiness is the problem in khadki area.Unauthrised construction on road towards 512ABW near gawliwada,also the PMPML busstand,an elderly lady struck with the bus.busses cannot turn because of encroachment.
