Rs 1.5 crore for Sinhagad Road, Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) to implement a ring road project

Yes, PMRDA! Which is not yet formed!!

The state Finance Ministry on Saturday approved a budgetary allocation of Rs 185 crore for the development of the district. The amount is Rs 68 crore more than what was originally proposed.

The budgetary provision includes Rs 1.5 crore for Sinhagad Road, Rs 16 crore for Indira Awas Yojana, Rs 2.5 crore for promoting cleanliness in rural areas and Rs 12 crore for small irrigation projects.

Ring road

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on Thursday held a meeting to discuss development activities, including the possibility of an outer ring road.

The representatives from the city urged for speedy formation of Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) for the planned development of the city.

Since any civic body cannot incur the expenses for construction of a ring road, it was decided that the project should be implemented by PMRDA.

Three options for raising funds were discussed. These included allowing two floor space index for infrastructure development alongside the road while the second option was funding by PMC, PCMC and the state government. The third option of implementing the project through town planning scheme was in principle agreed upon.

It was also decided that the road construction should be implemented by state public works department. The chief minister has directed the administration to submit a detailed report on execution of the project.
