PMC announces Rs 530 mn tender for 24x7 water project in Mhalunge

Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has announced a Rs 530 million tender for building water delivery infrastructure in the Sus and Mahalunge region after receiving harsh criticism from locals over water difficulties. The water agency released the tender and set a month-long deadline for the bidding process. When it is finished, Sus and Mahalunge water infrastructure will be put into operation as part of the 24x7 plan.

The tender order has been issued, and the bid procedure will proceed in accordance with the rules.

The city's rapid geographic and population growth had caused a significant increase in the demand for water. Over the previous ten years, the region has experienced extraordinary and quick urbanisation in both communities. However, because there had been a prolonged lack of water in the area, locals went to the Bombay High Court to make their water requests.

Residents of the twin villages protested the PMC water supply department after receiving water once every fifteen days. The local government subsequently began distributing water around the settlements using water tankers.

Amol Balwadkar, Former Corporator, had petitioned the PMC to include the neighbourhood in the 24 hour water system.

Balwadkar filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in 2015, alleging that up to 250 communities in the area lacked adequate access to water.

The High Court ordered PMC to halt issuing completion certificates and granting authorisation for new works in 2017.
