Pune, 16th March 2023: According to Collector Dr Rajesh Deshmukh, out of 460 hectares required for the Sant Dnyaneshwar Maharaj Palkhi Route passing through the Pune district, 452 hectares of land have been acquired. The remaining eight hectares of land will also be acquired soon. Accordingly, the road from Hadapsar to Dive Ghat has now been cleared. Therefore, it is possible to use this route by December.

The groundbreaking program of both these routes was held by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 8th November 2021. After that, the work of land acquisition of these routes started on a war level.

A direct purchase scheme was implemented for that. 460 hectares of land in the district was required for both these routes. Accordingly, 452 hectares of land have been acquired so far. The remaining eight hectares will also be taken over soon. Collector Dr Rajesh Deshmukh is taking initiative in this and is making the land acquisition work.

Sant Dnyaneshwar Maharaj Palkhi Route is 234 km long and has six stages. This will cost about Rs 7,516 crore. The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) is working on this. The work of five phases has started. The sixth stage is from Hadapsar to Dive Ghat and the entire land here has also been taken over. Therefore, the work of this sixth phase will also start soon. The awards of this land acquisition have been announced and compensation has also been given to the land owners.

The said route will be Hadapsar-Dive Ghat-Lonand-Dharmapuri-Khudus-Wakhari-Mohol. This route is four lanes and is being implemented through the Bharatmala project.

Saint Tukaram Maharaj Palkhi Route is 130 km long and the work is being done in three phases. A fund of Rs 4,415 crore will be given for this. The route from Dehu to Hadapsar is passing through the limits of both municipalities. As this is an urban road, Nitin Gadkari has clarified that discussions will be held with the municipal corporation and the state government regarding its improvement.

National Highway 65 from Hadapsar to Kasurdi is under construction to convert from four to six lanes. The work of making the Kasurdi to Patus route four-lane is also underway. However, it is not included in the palanquin route. The Palkhi route consists of three stages namely Patus to Baramati, Baramati to Indapur, and Indapur to Tondle Bondse.

Dr Rajesh Deshmukh, Collector, Pune, informed, “Land acquisition of 452 hectares out of 460 hectares of land in the district has been completed for both these routes. The NHAI is working on this. The tender for Hadapsar to Dive Ghat route will be released soon.”
