District guardian minister Girish Bapat undertook a review meeting of various Pune metropolitan region development authority (PMRDA) works and gave a four-month extension to regularise illegal constructions in the area.

The state government had decided to regularise illegal constructions in Maharashtra, mainly in urban areas recently and the last date was June 21. Bapat is vice-president, PMRDA and chief minister Devendra Fadnavis is president. Bapat said that 450 citizens have come forward to regularise their homes in the PMRDA region, but the number of illegal constructions are more.

Considering this, he instructed the PMRDA to give an extension of four months so that residents can submit documents to regularise illegal constructions by paying fines.

At the review meeting, Bapat also looked at various PMRDA works including the Hinjewadi to Shivajingar Metro line, the ring road, town planning and water schemes.

Bapat reviewed the proposed town planning schemes at Mahalunge, Vadachi wadi, Handewadi, Phursungi, Ambegaon and Yeolewadi.

The PMRDA is tasked with the Metro corridor work between Shivajinagar and Hinjwadi on a public private partnership (PPP) basis and the PMRDA would need to create a land bank for the same. Bapat took a review of the land which the PMRDA needs to acquire for the project.

Also, as the eastern parts of the city are facing water scarcity, Bapat asked the administration to take necessary steps to sort out the water problems in these areas, mainly Wagholi and Kharadi.
