The standing committee of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) on Tuesday, 15th June 2021, approved handing over of land for the Hinjewadi-Shivajinagar Metro project (Corridor-3), which is being executed by the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA).
The Metro project received a go-ahead from PMC’s general body in 2018. Some changes were proposed recently pertaining to the acquisition of land required for the project as well as expenses. A revised proposal was approved by the standing committee on Tuesday, 15th June 2021.
The PMC would incur the expenses for acquisition of land, which is part of the development plan (DP), against floor space index (FSI) / transfer of development right (TDR), or as per provisions of the Land Acquisition Act. The civic body will provide road space required for the project. Land plots other than those marked in the DP will be acquired by PMRDA.
Of the 23.3km-long corridor, about 14km stretch passes through PMC limits.
