Civic police, courts to curb illegal constructions in Pune

The civic standing committee on Tuesday passed a proposal of forming civic police stations and civic courts to control crimes like illegal constructions and encroachments in the city.
As many as 677 new posts will be created for the purpose. The new ranks will come up at the Pune Municipal Corporation's encroachment departments, civic police stations and the civic courts. An expenditure of up to Rs 10 crores is likely to be incurred on the system.

The proposal envisages creation of 500 posts in the department of deputy commissioner (encroachment), 132 posts for special policing, 28 posts at the special police stations and 17 posts at special courts. The PMC will make allocations in its annual budget for all the additional posts and for the land required to set up the police stations.

The proposal will now be sent to the general body and then to the state government for its final approval," standing committee chairman Nilesh Nikam said.
