Pune: State MLA of Purandar and Minister of State for Water Resource and Water Conservation Vijay Shivtare appealed residents of fringe areas to register complaints against developers and builders with MahaRERA (Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority) as they are not providing water to them.

Pune: State MLA of Purandar and Minister of State for Water Resource and Water Conservation Vijay Shivtare appealed residents of fringe areas to register complaints against developers and builders with MahaRERA (Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority) as they are not providing water to them.

On Friday, he was in Pune to conduct a review meeting of newly merged villages in the corporation limit. Shivtare appealed to the residents not getting adequate drinking water in the fringe areas of to file complaints against developers and builders with MahaRERA.
 
He said, “Due to lack of supply of drinking water in the fringe area, the corporation is not allowing construction to developers in that area. The builders give an affidavit to the corporation that they will take responsibility to provide drinking water. After that, corporation sanctions construction plan. In most of the fringe areas, the corporation is supplying water through water tankers. It has created pressure on the city water supply.”

“I have decided to call a meeting of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI) members and will appeal them to take onus to provide water to residents as per their commitment to the corporation. It will help to release pressure of corporation water supply. If they fail to do so, then the residents should file complaints against developers,” he added.

VG Kulkarni, Chief Superintendent Engineer of PMC, said, “Though corporation can provide water to five kilometre of periphery outside the corporation limit, due to lack of water distribution network and unavailability of water, we cannot provide to these fringe areas. So, we don’t give NoC from the Water Supply Department. However, developers give the affidavit for taking onus to provide water. Kharadi, Vishrantwadi, Mohamadwadi-Hadapsar, Baner-Balewadi are some of the areas where the corporation has given permission to allow construction.”

Satish Magar, former president of CREDAI and Managing Director of Magarpatta township, said, “To provide drinking water, it is the responsibility of the corporation. If they don’t have the infrastructure, then they should not allow construction permission. They should have to take responsibility.”
