Suresh Kalmadi the MP of Pune City co-cordially invites all the citizens of Pune to help him Develop a Comprehensive Plan for Vision Pune 2020.

The historic Pune city is emerging as a Metro city. The internationally renowned Forbes magazine has included Pune among the ten fastest growing cities of the world. It has been predicted that Pune expected to cross the population mark of 50 lacks in the next ten years by 2020.

The mammoth growth in population will certainly bear the brunt on the civic amenities like roads, traffic, water supply and even housing etc. Keeping in mind the stress which will be on the city meticulous planning has to be chalked out from now on to find new avenues to increase the civic amenities and the required facilities.

On this scenario the MP of Pune City Mr. Suresh Kalmadi has a dream about 2020 for Pune which he terms as “Vision 2020”.

New dams for increased water demand, new and elevated roads, and bridges and over bridges, metro mono rail, multi storied Parking lots, free bus transport for school children, rehabilitation of slum dwellers & hawkers, affordable housing for the middle class, satellite township, 100 percent literacy, 100 percent employment, Pune as a venue for international sports events….. These are some of pertinent points in his mind about Pune in 2020.

The MP expects thorough discussions and contributions from all the strata of the society in Pune to plan a balanced Development policy of Pune, along with raising funds for the same.

Press Release

Where is Lok Sabha?

Is it somewhere near Shaniwarwada or at Balewadi? However, thinking about the future of Pune is not bad. What say you?


  1. Wow. Another of this MP's schemes? Everyone saw what happend to the CYG09 games funds and how the infrastructure development was handled. They finished the Pashan road in a hurry just a week or so before the games and that too because the originally planned Baner road was not finished in time.
    Can anyone really say that Pune looks like a city where they spent more than 3000Crore during CYG09? Not to me, at least. So this Vision 2020 is nothing but a gimmick to enrich self. So no I dont think I want to contribute to this so called vision and give one more excuse to this money hungry piece of "you know what".

  2. Why loose a focus by such news items. Lets talk real estate and not dum politics.

  3. Pashan Road looks good. Lets see for how long it lasts and why cant we have all roads in Pune like Pashan-Sus road.

  4. The city looks fantastic. After the CYG games, the Balewadi area with the flyover really looks awesome if you pass by late evening you dont feel like you are in pune. It has got an international look. Earlier it used to take 45 mins to come from University to Balewadi. The same distance can be crossed in about 15-20 mins now. I have put my thoughts on vision2020 on kalmadi website and was happy to get a personal response.
