Government working on various plans for police housing: Maharashtra CM – ET RealEstate

PUNE: Deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar on Friday said the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government was working on various plans for solving the housing problems of police personnel in the state.

“We can request a builder to handover his land for police housing and, in return, we shall give him an extra FSI (floor space index) and pay him the cost of the building constructed. We can also consider institutions like the Life Insurance Corporation of India Limited for constructing affordable homes for the police,” Ajit Pawar, also the district guardian minister, said.

“If as a government we expect good services from the police, then we are bound to solve their problems, too,” he said, speaking after the launch of the Pimpri Chinchwad police services for the public, including SEVA App, social media accounts and X-Tracker app to keep track of externed criminals.

Pimpri Chinchwad police commissioner Krishna Prakash, additional commissioner of police Ramnath Pokale, Pimpri Chinchwad municipal commissioner Shravan Hardikar, MLAs Anna Bansode and Dilip Mohite were present on the occasion.

Ajit Pawar said the state government would grant permission for setting up of police stations. “The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation will make financial provision for the same,” he said.

Appreciating Pimpri Chinchwad police commissioner Krishna Prakash’s people-friendly policing move, he said, “The MVA government always supports officers who take initiative for the public by using the latest technology. Police should not bother about any political interference and work for the safety of common people.”

Ajit Pawar also felicitated the in-charges of six police stations who scored A++ grades in the Smart ISO certification.

Krishna Prakash said, “We have launched these apps for people-oriented policing. With our presence in social media, we can reach out to people immediately and the public, too, can approach us any time.”

The Pimpri Chinchwad police can now be contacted on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and on YouTube, he said.

The commissioner said they were planning to use the X-Tracker app for helping senior citizens. “Senior citizens who stay alone at home can be easily tracked with the help of this app,” he said.

Rehabilitation plan nearly in place for Kamgar Putala slum pocket residents – ET RealEstate

PUNE: More than 900 families from the Kamgar Putala slum pocket, near Civil Court, have completed the basic formalities needed for rehabilitation. The land they vacate would be used for the Pune Metro rail project.

Nearly 300 families are holding out on completing the formalities. The authorities said they were holding talks with the families to end the deadlock.

Nitin Udas, deputy commissioner, Pune Municipal Corporation, who has been handling the matter from the start, said the slum dwellers have demanded that they be rehabilitated in the same area, a demand that was not possible to meet.

Udas said they have nearly completed the process of scrutinizing the paperwork. “We expect the remaining process to be completed in a few days,” Udas said.

The land is crucial for the Metro project — pillars and an elevated Metro station on the Vanaz-Ramwadi corridor are planned in this location. Some portion of the land is also required for the Hinjewadi-Shivajinagar Metro corridor, being developed by Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority.

“We have identified various locations for the residents’ rehabilitation. We have displayed these details in the locality. We are waiting for the residents’ response,” a PMC official said.

Since the process to acquire the land started last October, a series of meetings were held at various levels, including two with deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar, to break the impasse. Pawar has directed PMC, the slum rehabilitation authority and Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MahaMetro) to work out a solution.

The Metro viaduct has already been constructed till the Kamgar Putala and the Rajiv Gandhi Vasahat area. The plan is to construct 10 pillars and a portion of the elevated Metro station in the existing slum area.

“We are offering the necessary assistance to the civic administration in this process. We will begin the work only after the land is formally handed over to MahaMetro,” a MahaMetro official said.
