Rajendra Bhosale, Pune municipal commissioner, on Tuesday, held a review meeting with the building construction department and asked officials to submit monthly report of action taken against such establishments.

There are 89 illegal rooftop hotels and the administration had issued notices to 76 such establishments, said officials.

The state excise department on Tuesday sealed Cosie and Blak, the two restaurants-cum-pubs at Mundhwa and Koregaon Park respectively, that served alcohol to the minor accused involved in the Porshe accident.

Bhosale said, “It is the municipal corporation’s responsibility to check the illegal establishments which are creating a nuisance. The building permission department and ward offices need to act swiftly. If any official is found not performing their duty they will face strict action.”

The locals have repeatedly complained about these establishments flouting rules and leading ills such as honking, unauthorised parking, speeding and drunken driving, etc.

Sangita Tiwari, a resident of Koregaon Park, said, “As there are multiple bars and pubs in the area, locals here face several issues and we have even complained to the administration on multiple occasions.”

Sanjeev Varma, a resident of Vimannagar, said, “As pubs are operational till late at night, many youths park their vehicle near housing societies and even create a nuisance during night hours.”
