Pune: Even as the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) proposed its ambitious Shivsrushti project, which is still in discussion stage, the State government is going to grant Rs 5 crore for historian Babasaheb Purandare’s private Shivsrushti on Saturday.

The cheque will be handed over by Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Shipping and Water Resource Nitin Gadkari at the Pune Divisional Office. Gadkari will be in the city along with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for a function. 

The State government had issued a government resolution on February 8 this year which said under the Maharashtra Tourism Policy of 2016, the State will include Maharashtra Shiv Chhatrapati Pratishthan’s Shivsrushti in government’s mega project. The Pratishthan’s trust belongs to Purandare. This is a part of the government’s plan to promote tourism in State by providing such projects with financial aid. 

According to a government order, the Pratishthan’s Shivsrushti will be located on Survey number 13 in Ambegaon (Budruk), Katraj-Mumbai Bypass. It requires around Rs 300 crore and will generate about 300 jobs.
