PMC seeks standing committee nod for its Metro stretch
Initially, there was a proposal that the cost burden falling on civic bodies be distributed equally between the PCMC and PMC but differences cropped up with PCMC opposing it arguing that the length of the route passing through PCMC area was less and they would hence pay for only that part. Of the 16.59-km route, a 7.15-km stretch is in PCMC limits and a 9.44-km stretch in PMC limits.
The PCMC general body had passed a resolution to bear the cost of the 7.15-km stretch and the PCMC municipal commissioner had urged the PMC to clear its part of the route and send a joint proposal to the state government.
Pune municipal commissioner Mahesh Pathak said the metro route from Vanaz to Ramwadi has been approved by the civic body and cleared by the state government.
“It has been forwarded to the union government for final clearance,” he said adding that approval for the route from Pimpri-Chinchwad to Swargate would enable the civic administration to push it along with the Vanaz-Ramwadi route. The 16.59-km Pimpri-Chinchwad to Swargate route will have 15 stations. The route in PCMC
