Hinjawadi, 23rd June 2024: C Pulkundwar, the divisional commissioner of Pune, has instructed PMRDA, PCMC, NHAI, and PWD, among other agencies, to prioritize addressing the grievances raised by the Hinjawadi Industries Association.


During his visit to the area on Friday, Pulkundwar engaged in extensive discussions with stakeholders, including heads of the industry association and officials responsible for infrastructure development. “The executing authorities must submit a clear timeline for addressing the demands of the industries,” stated Pulkundwar on Saturday.


Members of the Hinjawadi association had presented a list of 19 demands, encompassing road maintenance, provision of additional and alternative roads, and the clearance of cables, hoardings, and garbage.


Earlier this week, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar had directed the divisional commissioner to convene a meeting with the industry association and mandated a timeline for meeting their demands.


Colonel Yogesh Joshi (Retd), representing the Hinjawadi Industries’ Association, expressed optimism about the recent developments. “The intervention by the deputy chief minister, followed by the divisional commissioner’s visit, marks a positive step towards addressing the concerns of our association,” said Joshi.


Former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had previously highlighted the challenges faced by the Hinjawadi IT hub in a social media post last month, noting that 37 industries had relocated due to inadequate infrastructure.


The directives from the divisional commissioner underscore a concerted effort to enhance infrastructure and support the growth of industries in the Hinjawadi area, pivotal to Pune’s economic landscape.
