Make Lands occupied by Abandoned Octroi system of PMC, available to Pmpml for Bus Depos,Workshops,Stands,stops,Pass Centres etc

Dear Hon Madams/Sirs,

Now that Escort system is completely closed ,concludes Finally the Octroi System of PMC wef 16th August '14.   As such as rightly decided more than year ago , to handover Octroi post/land to Pmpml for Bus Depos,Workshops, Stands,Stops,sheds,Pass Centres etc. Pmp is greatly handicapped in absence of critical infrastructure. Almost 40% buses app 700 remain off road/parked on public road causing thefts/damages etc. Same is the case for Bus Stands,sheds,pass centres etc.
It warrants urgent action to complete process and handover these Octroi properties/lands to Pmpml.
This will substantially improve crucial infrastructure of Pmpml & in turn better bus service to lakhs of citizens/commuters.
Urgent positive action requested.
