Pre­fer­ring an in­dus­trial town­ship sta­tus, the Taloja In­dus­tries As­so­ci­a­tion (TIA) has de­cided to op­pose the ju­ris­dic­tion of the pro­posed Pan­vel Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (PMC), ex­pected to be formed next year.

A meet­ing of the Mum­bai In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (MIDC) in­dus­tri­al­ists was held in Taloja MIDC by TIA on Wed­nes­day to dis­cuss the two op­tions. “We have de­cided not to be a part of the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion. We are in­stead propos­ing an in­dus­trial town­ship in the re­gion that will greatly ben­e­fit the in­dus­tries here,” said Satish Shetty, pres­i­dent of TIA.

“The 980 in­dus­tries are fac­ing a tough time and will be bur­dened fur­ther with ad­di­tional taxes by PMC as has hap­pened with Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion,” he said.

“The gram pan­chay­ats are de­pen­dent on taxes from the in­dus­tries and will lose out so will the project-af­fected peo­ple. Through the town­ship, we will en­sure the PAP do not suf­fer,” said TIA sec­re­tary Juzar Bur­mawala, Po­lice of­fi­cers dis­play the 67 du­pli­cate car keys and mobile phones re­cov­ered from the ar­rested on Wed­nes­day.
