Citadel - - FLASHBACK -

Un­der crit­i­cism over fail­ure to de­liver de­sired re­sults, the Pune Smart City Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion Ltd (PSCDCL) has pro­posed to in­crease its ju­ris­dic­tion of op­er­a­tion for area-based devel­op­ment. PSCDCL cited the need to show bet­ter re­sults of the smart city projects be­ing im­ple­mented in the area se­lected for devel­op­ment. The area of Aundh-Baner-Bale­wadi was se­lected un­der area devel­op­ment cat­e­gory un­der the smart city mis­sion. The cur­rent Smart City Pro­posal (SCP) for Pune in­cludes trans­for­ma­tion of around 950 acres of part of Aundh-Baner-Bale­wadi area, and there are plans to ex­tend it by 150 per cent. An in­vest­ment of ` 2,196 crore is ear­marked for trans­for­ma­tion of the area through 34 lo­cal area devel­op­ment projects. In a pro­posal tabled in the meet­ing of board of direc­tors, the PSDCL said there was need to in­crease the area se­lected for devel­op­ment un­der smart city mis­sion in or­der to im­prove the de­sired im­pact of key projects, such as Bus Rapid Tran­sit (BRT) sys­tem, bi­cy­cle lanes, solid waste man­age­ment and street re­design. These projects have not been achieved due to space and ter­rain lim­i­ta­tions.
