Recycling of waste water in Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation - modifications in DC rules

Read the proposal and give your suggestions and objections:

 The use of recycled water will soon be made compulsory for housing societies and new buildings located on plots measuring 4,000 sq mtr and above in non-congested areas in Pimpri-Chinchwad.

The recycled water is to be used for all purposes other than drinking.

The general body of the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation has approved a resolution to this effect.

Now, in order to implement the provision, the municipal corporation is all set to include it in its development control rules.

For this, it has invited public suggestions and objections to the proposal.

After hearing the suggestions and objections received in the next one month, the proposal would be sent to the state government for final approval.

The entire process of amending the development control rules is expected to take a few months.

Visit "Google Docs" to read the proposal:


What is your take on the installing and maintaining recycling system in your housing society?

“The owner of the building or the housing society shall ensure that the system used for recycling of waste water is maintained in good repair and the recycled water shall be used for non-potable purposes like flushing of toilets and gardening,” Ashish Sharma, municipal commissioner PCMC, has stated in his proposal.

If the owner or the housing society fails to provide or properly maintain the water recycling system, a fine of Rs 1,000 per year (or as decided from time to time) for every 100 sq mtr of built-p area would be imposed, the proposal says.

Can your housing society afford to install and maintain the recycling plant? Please, share your views in the comments. (Comments Policy),

  1. Its a nice thought to try to do something for the environment but I smell more like helping out some recycling plant manufacturer or someone in its' maintenance. Also remember the worm culture plan? it was with good intentions too but dont think its working properly either. So all the best if this gets approved.

  2. Yet some more ways to take kick backs and bribes. It may sound good on paper but how many societies can do that when in my society we hardly have money to pay our electric bill and gardner.
