Till now, 2,050 passes have been distributed.

According to PMPML officials, these passes are granted by Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC).

“The Swargate pass centre doesn’t have proper facilities. During rain, we had to wait fo it to stop. There was no sitting arrangement for us,” a handicapped person said on condition of anonymity.

“The PMPML is providing ‘ME’ card for all pass holders. Till now around 2,050 ‘ME’ cards have been distributed to the pass holders,” said Gaikwad.
