Correct 'water affidavit' mistake - news link to DNA on Water, PMC, Builder and You

PMC robs citizens and rewards tanker mafia- follow up:

The element of deceit is apparent because the PMC never informed the public about these water affidavits and many flat owners also did not get a copy of the document as promised by their builders to the PMC.

The water affidavits also raise legal issues.

"The water department is issuing the no-objection certificates to builders but it is not considering the capacity of water distribution," he said reacting to DNA's expose on the "water affidavits".

He said that Pune's development was allowed in the eastern parts without providing adequate infrastructure. "Henceforth, the civic body will take note of the infrastructure before issuing the building permission," Municipal commissioner Mahesh Zagade said.
