With illegal construction turning out to be a major concern in the city, Pune Municipal Corporation has urged citizens to buy property only after proper verification of the structure's legality.
Such information has been made available for the citizens on its official website www.pmcalert.org.
"The citizens should keep away from illegal constructions. A list of all PMC-approved building plans has been put up on our website and for structures apart from those, citizens should check with the civic offices concerned to avoid loss of property or life in case of any eventuality," said Additional City Engineer
In a press statement, the civic administration further stated that if any citizen wants to file a complaint or provide information about illegal constructions, then they can do so on the website.
The civic administration has urged citizens to provide information on any construction that is being done in haste, it said, adding, "The PMC will not provide any civic services to illegal buildings in the city." It also stated that citizens should get information on completion certificate of any construction before using it for residential purpose.
Meanwhile, PMC has intensified its drive against illegal constructions and demolished several structures in Baner and Sangamwadi. "The civic administration has taken up work to identify illegal constructions that are dangerous and need to be demolished. It has also started the process of filing criminal cases against the developer of illegal constructions,"
In Taljai, where an illegal building collapsed in September, leading to the death of 11 persons, he said the civic administration has identified 27 illegal constructions that are in a precarious condition. "The PMC has served notice to the residents of three buildings, asking them to vacate them, and has also decided to undertake detailed structure audit of the remaining 24 buildings,"
