According to the proposal, the State government has ordered all municipal corporations and local  bodies in Maharashtra to take strict ation against illegal constructions and  encroachments. 

Since keeping a close eye on  illegal constructions is a daunting task, the Pune Municipal Corporation decided to engage the Hyderabad-based Central Government owned National Remote Sensing Centre to capture the satellite images of illegal constructions. 

Speaking to the media, Standing Committee Chairman Murlidhar Mohol said that for hiring the service of NRSC, the PMC will have to pay Rs 7.07 lakh and the agency will have to complete the work in 45 days since a work order has been issued. 

The National Remote Sensing Centre will have to submit the current details of all legal constructions and sanctioned plans in the PMC having an area of 586 square km. 

Once the National Remote Sensing Centre installs the data provided by the PMC in its system, then it will get to know the details about the illegal constructions and encroachments through the satellite images which will help the PMC to identify illegal constructions and take action against them accordingly. 
Moreover, the PMC will be able to update the details of illegal constructions every six months with the help of satellite images.
