Pune Municipal Corp’s gunthewari scheme starts off at slow pace

The Gunthewari scheme announced for the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) zones is yet to gather pace, with only 13 proposals approved.

The elected members have sought the state government to take some steps to make the process hassle-free.

BJP State President Chandrakant Patil said that the regularisation charges for the proposals should be reduced to avail the scheme.

The corporation has estimated that one lakh properties within the PMC areas can be regularised. This scheme benefits both commercial and residential properties.

According to data, the applicants will have to pay thrice the charges, compared to the ready reckoner rates for getting the proposal approved.

The property owners from the 23 villages merged into the civic body limits will not be able to regularise their unauthorised properties under the Gunthewari scheme because the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) is the planning authority for these building permissions in the villages.

According to an official, the sanctioning authority for building permissions for the properties in these villages is different, so PMC cannot regularise illegal constructions there.

The state government had issued an order notifying that the PMRDA would function as the special planning authority for their development plan. The order was issued under sections 40(1) and 40(1)9[D] of the Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices (MRTP) Act.
