Pune, 11th August 2022: As the Katraj-Kondhwa road widening project has been stalled for the last four years due to land acquisition problems, the Municipal Administration has now taken action to solve this problem on the lines of Chandni Chowk.

In the first phase, the road will be widened by 50 meters instead of 84 meters. This project will require Rs 280 crores. The administration will be establishing a proposal stating that the State Government should make these funds available.

The Katraj Kondhwa Road is significant in South Pune and often witnesses very heavy traffic. The road is currently 32 meters long, which has proven to be insufficient. The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has, hence, decided to widen it to 84 meters.

At present, only 28 percent of work has been completed. 2.88 lakh square meters of space is required for this four-kilometre road, out of which 58 thousand square meters area has a road. 66 thousand square meters of land has been taken over.


As the land acquisition of another 1.28 lakh square meters is required, the work of the project is at a standstill. PMC is ready to pay compensation through TDR instead of cash to acquire the land. But, at present, land owners are not ready to accept TDR owing to its falling price. If all the seats are taken over in cash, the price will tally up to Rs 815 crore.

“It has been decided to make the Katraj Kondhwa road 50 meters. Rs 280 crores is needed for its land acquisition. A proposal will be sent to get this fund from the state government,” said Vikram Kumar, Commissioner, PMC.




A flyover is being constructed by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to solve land acquisition traffic congestion at Chandni Chowk. But this land acquisition should be by the PMC. It required the acquisition of vacant places from the citizens, front margins of buildings, and some residential societies. For this, the state government helped the PMC and provided cash directly to the land owners. Hence, it was possible to work in this square. Similarly, help is required for the Katraj Kondhwa road too.
