PAN­VEL: In a ma­jor push to the for­ma­tion of a Pan­vel mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion, the state gov­ern­ment has now formed a com­mit­tee to study the plan and sub­mit a re­port within a month.

Pan­vel is cur­rently un­der the ju­ris­dic­tion of Pan­vel mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil (PMC) which has ex­panded its ju­ris­dic­tion to around 900 hectare (ha). Of this, around 500ha is in City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (Cidco) area while 363ha in Pan­vel city is un­der PMC ju­ris­dic­tion.

“It was around 25 years ago that the pro­posal for the for­ma­tion of a Pan­vel mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion was put forth. The state gov­ern­ment had is­sued a no­ti­fi­ca­tion. The ur­ban de­vel­op­ment min­is­ter had sur­veyed the area and pre­pared a pro­posal,” said a PMC of­fi­cial on con­di­tion of anonymity.

“There are is­sues of roads, fly­overs, wa­ter, recre­ation cen­tres, solid waste man­age­ment and other such in­fra­struc­ture in Cidco ju­ris­dic­tion ar­eas. There is a need for a plan­ning author­ity that will work on de­vel­op­ment of the area,” said the of­fi­cial.

PMC has put forth a pro­posal to the state gov­ern­ment to in­clude Pan­vel, Kamothe, Kharghar, Kalamboli and Taloja in­dus­trial in the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion’s ju­ris­dic­tion.
