Pune on way to becoming an Urban Disaster

Hi there all,
Why did you and I come to Pune and why do we continue to live in Pune? It is because the Quality of Life, Pune offered us was far, far better that any other city in India could offer us..
But all that is fast coming to an end. The  Draft Development Plan prepared by the Pune Municipal Corporation is a builders’ dream plan and a nightmare for the citizens..
Do you know what the Draft Development Plan will do in the next 20 years? :
  • Any vacant plot in the city can be grabbed by the PMC ie even if it’s inside your society. So the green areas in your housing society are no longer safe. There will be some construction there shortly..
  • Green areas will disappear. New roads will appear through Green Zones to facilitate large deluxe housing complexes. Hill Tops and Hill Slopes, Green Zones to be made into SEZs, IT Parks and Amusement Parks. This will mean a loss of green cover impacting Climate Change..
