Pune Municipal Corporation Springs into Action After Chief Minister’s Warning

Pune Municipal Corporation

Responding to a stern warning from the Chief Minister’s office, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has taken swift action to address a backlog of citizen complaints and administrative tasks. An urgent meeting on Tuesday saw civic officials prioritizing the resolution of accumulated complaints, signaling a proactive approach to address concerns about the PMC’s responsiveness.

Former corporators and residents have criticized the PMC for what they perceive as a lack of promptness in addressing citizen grievances during the current administrative tenure. The scrutiny heightened when it was revealed that 141 complaints forwarded by the Chief Minister’s office remained unaddressed. Of these, 48 were related to issues within the road department, and an additional 25 concerned the construction department. Similar grievances were reported from various other departments.

Additional Commissioner Ravindra Binwade has taken charge of reviewing the complaints and has assured citizens of swift action on pending grievances. The urgency of resolution has been underscored, given the growing dissatisfaction with the PMC’s perceived inaction.

As the PMC’s current administration nears its two-year mark, allegations of mismanagement from former corporators and citizens have intensified. The intervention from the Chief Minister’s office serves as a strong message, urging the PMC to prioritize and expedite the resolution of citizen grievances.

In response to the intervention, an urgent meeting led by Additional Commissioner Ravindra Binwade was held on Monday at the corporation. The discussion centered around the need to promptly address outstanding complaints, with Binwade emphasizing the importance of timely resolution. While progress has been made in resolving some complaints, the status of many remains unclear. The PMC has acknowledged delays in receiving complaints via postal services and proposed a plan to deploy staff members to Mumbai weekly to collect submissions from citizens.

The Chief Minister’s office has forwarded a list of 127 complaints regarding civic issues to the district magistrate and 14 divisional commissioners, urging prompt action from the PMC. Notably, 49 complaints pertain to the roads department, emphasizing the critical need for attention in this area. Various other departments, including city engineers, solid waste management, education, water supply, drainage, encroachment, illegal construction, and tax, also have pending complaints that need resolution.
