Anti-Encroachment drive conducted

PCB also conducted an anti-encroachment drive on Saturday and removed encroachments on the government land situated opposite the Poona College. The land was illegally occupied by occupants, who had put up stalls and were running various businesses. Due to these stalls, a lot of inconvenience was being caused to the pedestrians as well as vehicular traffic.

Various complaints have been received regarding the inconvenience being faced by the general public around the area. Taking cognisance of the same, the Cantonment removed the encroachments. The encroachments comprised stalls constructed over 500 sq ft of land.

Shrigiri said, “We have been conducting anti-encroachment drives in the same place from over a year and now only one stall was removed on Saturday. Now, we are planning to make a parking area there. And soon the work will start which impedes the encroachments in the future.”
