Few takers for town planning schemes in Maharashtra
“The realty sector is not looking up and the cash-strapped state government is keen on focusing other schemes,” one official said.
PUNE: Nearly 150 town planning schemes in Maharashtra, proposed by the erstwhile BJP-led government, have failed to take off.
The then government had hoped to roll-out 150 town planning schemes in the state, but the current dispensation is yet to give the necessary clearances, officials in the know said. “The realty sector is not looking up and the cash-strapped state government is keen on focusing other schemes,” one official said.
The plan was further hobbled by the lack of interest showed by the civic bodies in the state. Senior town planning department officials said that while the previous government had directed 27 municipal corporations and 250 municipal councils to come up with proposals — on the lines of the Mann-Mhalunge scheme — only a handful have shown interest as the current government is yet to issue directions on the same.
“Only Pune Municipal Corporation, Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation, Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation, Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority, Pune Metropolitan Regional Development Authority and Nagpur Municipal Corporation have responded,” a top government official said.
The official added the government would clear the proposals as and when the local authority submits one. However, some analysts said the process may not be as clear-cut. “The slowdown in the announcement of more schemes could also be attributed to the amount of time it consumes — from the announcement of the schemes to checking for the land ownership, it is a lengthy process,” another analyst said.
