PUNE: Nearly 315 plot owners of the Mann-Mhalunge town planning scheme will get their property cards by the end of this month.
Officials from the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) stated that 150 plot owners had been given the property cards. The rest would be allocated the plots by the end of this month for the proposed town planning scheme. Citizens would have to revert to the authorities within a week if any changes are required.
“This is the first step towards commencement of work of the proposed town planning scheme. After the property cards are distributed, plots would be marked. Thereafter, the work of road and other infrastructure projects would start,” said an official of PMRDA.
The Mann-Mhalunge town planning scheme is based on Gujarat’s town planning scheme model. The proposed scheme has nearly 5,800 beneficiaries and enables landowners to get back 50% of the developed land in the same area for which the arbitration process was carried out.
The Mann-Mhalunge town planning scheme is being planned on 250 hectares. A budgetary allocation of Rs100 crore has been made for it this financial year. The residential plots will be taken by plot owners. PMRDA will get the remaining plots. It is looking at attracting huge investments in those.
