Pune : Deccan ExpressPune Municipal Corporation (PMC) | PMC Administrator and Municipal Commissioner Vikram Kumar has said that works approved at the financial year-end and those carried out in private spaces will be examined and bills will be issued. Works not following the norms will not be paid for. This is the third consecutive blow by the administrator to the corporators. Firstly, encroachments of public representatives were razed. Then, amenity spaces held by such corporators have also been examined. Now, the work bills is the third consecutive blow to corporators.


Corporators rushed to complete works in their wards before the financial year ended. Right from floating a tender, getting it approved and executing it were done speedily by them. It was found in the past that bills were issued for the works, which did not exist at all. Ahead of the civic polls, some corporators even spent civic money to carry out work at private places.


When reporters asked about such works, Administrator Vikram Kumar said civic works are being examined. “Around 25 percent works will be checked by the ward offices. Later, the additional municipal commissioner will examine such works. I will also inspect some works by conducting surprise checks. The works not following the norms will not be paid for,” said Kumar.


E-buses to replace diesel buses from the PMPML fleet

The civic administration has decided to buy 200 e-buses from the funds provided by the central government. A tender for the same will be floated soon. Around 140 buses were dedicated to the people recently by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Around 50 more buses from this phase will arrive in the PMPML fleet soon. The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) will also buy 100 e-buses. Thus, 300 e-buses will join the PMPML fleet. Currently, the public transport body has 300 diesel buses. They will be phased out from the service, said Vikram Kumar.
