30 PMC plans await state nod

Ten years have passed since the civic general body unanimously resolved to offer a 10 per cent rebate in tax to citizens who have been judiciously paying municipal property taxes before May 30 every year.

However, the actual execution of the proposal has been held up in the absence of a clearance from the state government. And, this is not an isolated example. As many as 30 such policy proposals, duly approved by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) from 1996 to 2007, have been pending for government clearance. This shocking fact has been admitted by the PMC in an official reply, under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, to civic activist Vivek Velankar.
