The Bombay High Court today came down heavily on the Pune Municipal Corporation for giving permissions to builders to construct buildings without creating the necessary infrastructure - in Baner Balewadi:
|Baner Balewadi in Pune Municipal Corporation — No Basic Urban Infrastructure|
According to the news in IndiaToday, the issue - a public interest litigation - that had been raised by - Amol - Balwadkar pertained to Baner and Balewadi areas of Pune where indiscriminate construction has been happening in the recent time.
Balwadkar's lawyer Anurag Jain had contended that without roads, water supply, occupation certificates are also given while people take heavy home loans to get a roof over their head only to realise later that they have to pay heavy society charge as the buildings do not have water supply.
"Heavy expenditure is borne by most of the building societies to get water tankers," Jain told the bench.
Justice Kulkarni noting this issue said, "You (corporation) are mainly interested in indiscriminate revenue. Before you have skyscrapers, why can't you get basic infrastructure in place?"
Chief Justice Chellur asked, "If you collect the money from the builders, by the time they finish construction why can't you provide water pipelines?"

Baner-Balewadi has a population of over two lakh people, contributing over Rs 800 crore over eight years in the form of development charges, taxes, surcharges, property tax, land dealings, stamp duty registration charges and more, revealed to them via documents received under the Right to Information (RTI) Act.
Yet, PMC has not built a single public toilet in the area over this period of time. Moreover, basics like roads, waste disposal systems, water supply, vegetable markets, playgrounds, gardens, civic hospitals, good schools, police stations, etc. are also lacking.
On top of this, there is no fire station around and residents depend on Aundh or Pimpri-Chinchwad fire station in case of emergency.
