Pune: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to implement an amnesty scheme for property owners, who have not obtained the occupancy certificates so far.
The scheme is drafted particularly for illegal constructions and for incomplete constructions. A proposal in this regard has been put before the General Body for seeking its approval.
According to the proposal, owners of illegal properties in Pune, who have not obtained the occupancy certificate, cannot sell their properties. Many builders did not complete their housing schemes, resulting in their owners not getting the occupancy certificate. They also cannot resell their properties. Hence, the scheme has been drafted for them.
The PMC is also losing revenue as property owners do not have the occupancy certificate. Interestingly, the PMC had launched a similar scheme last year also. However, it did not get a good response due to lack of publicity. Hence, the PMC should publicise the scheme through hoardings, phones, radio etc. It should be implemented till August 31.
This proposal was originally mooted by former NCP corporators Shivlal Bhosale and Vinayak Hanamghar in November, last year. Now, BJP corporators Farzana Shaikh and Gopal Chintal have put forth the proposal before the General Body.
