Crumbling houses of Pune civic body employees to be redeveloped – ET RealEstate

PUNE: The dilapidated houses of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) employees at Ambil Odha will be redeveloped soon. The civic standing committee has diverted Rs6.2 crore from other works to redevelop the properties.

The civic body has planned to redevelop 11 buildings and six small housing schemes in the area. “The issue had been pending for long. The availability of funds can help speed up the project,” said Hemant Rasane, chairman of the standing committee.

Corporator Dheeraj Ghate said it was the need of the hour to redevelop the properties as they are proving to be life threatening.

“Some of these properties are more than 50 years old. They are in danger of crumbling. The situation worsens during the monsoon and any untoward incident could cause serious damage,” he said.

The buildings are in Sane Guruji Vasahat near Dandekar bridge. Nearly 450 houses are located here and a majority of them are dilapidated.

“Either the present buildings will be redeveloped or the space will be used to construct a separate building. At least 100 houses will be built. The shifting will be done on need basis. Residents from the most dilapidated properties will be shifted on priority,” said a civic official.
