City Development plan is dictatated by Builders

Experts including Town Planning expert Anita Benninger, former director of town planning department  Ramchandra Gohad,  V D kulkarni, Vijay Kumbhar of surajya , Ranjeet Gadgil and Vivek Velankar of Sajag Nagrik Manch criticed revised draft okan of 2007-2027 development plan for Pune.

The plan has lot of mistakes and no thoughts have been put into city's planning. Citizens should challenge the DP. There are many 'reservations' in land in DP but in reality they are not followed. DP has been dicatated by developers and is not in interest of citizens. In process of preparing DP, peoples partcipation is must. There is no mention of how the funds will be raised for proposed development plans. Some % of state and central government funds should be used for this development.

This Talk was organized by Sajag Nagrik Manch.
