Pimpri, 6th January 2024: The entire Maratha community has issued an ultimatum to the Maharashtra State Government, demanding action on the Maratha reservation by January 20. Responding to this, a comprehensive survey is set to be conducted in Pimpri-Chinchwad city, with around two thousand employees appointed by the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) for the task. The initiative aims to assess the social and educational backwardness of the Maratha community.
Under the leadership of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, the Maharashtra State Government is actively working to address the demand for Maratha reservation. The urgency is fueled by the potential mass protests in Mumbai if the reservation is not granted. The government has initiated a comprehensive administrative process to evaluate the educational and social conditions of the Maratha community.
Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has issued orders instructing all District Collectors to survey the Maratha reservation. Similar survey orders have been dispatched to Divisional Commissioners, Nodal Officers, and District Collectors. In Pimpri-Chinchwad, Municipal Commissioner Shekhar Singh has been appointed as the Nodal Officer, with Deputy Commissioner Avinash Shinde serving as the Assistant Nodal Officer for the collection of information regarding the Maratha community.
To gather information about the Maratha community, a house-to-house survey will be conducted under the eight regional offices of the Municipal Corporation. Approximately 2,200 employees will be deployed for this extensive data collection initiative.
The survey will focus on understanding the challenges faced by the Maratha community, evaluating the facilities provided to them, and addressing social and educational issues. The Maharashtra State Government aims to use the collected data to formulate policies that address the specific needs and concerns of the Maratha community.
