Pune, 10th May 2023: The notification to exclude the villages of Fursungi and Uruli Devachi from the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and establish a separate municipal council for these two villages has generated around six and a half thousand objections.

The Collector’s office has received a substantial number of objections, and the process of reviewing and registering these objections is currently underway. The hearing on these objections is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 15, and the final report will be subsequently submitted to the state government.

Fursungi and Uruli Devachi were incorporated into the Pune Municipal Corporation in 2017. However, the residents of these villages expressed discontent, citing high taxes and a lack of adequate facilities provided by the municipal corporation. In response to these concerns, the villagers appealed to Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde during a meeting held on December 6, 2022, requesting exclusion from the municipal corporation.

Chief Minister Shinde announced the decision to exclude Fursungi and Uruli Devachi villages accordingly. Subsequently, the municipal administration initiated the process and submitted a report to the government. On March 31 of this year, Anirudh Jevlikar, Deputy Secretary of the Urban Development Department, issued a draft notification in this regard.

In response to the draft notification, citizens registered their objections with the district administration, resulting in an overwhelming response of over six and a half thousand objections within a month. The district administration is currently engaged in the task of scrutinizing and recording these objections.

To address these objections, Collector Dr. Rajesh Deshmukh has appointed Deputy Collector/Additional Collector level officers who will conduct hearings and compile a report to be presented to the Collector. This officer will oversee the hearing process and report the findings to Dr Deshmukh before submitting the report to the government. The entire process is estimated to take approximately one to one and a half months.

Afterward, the state government will review the report and issue the final notification regarding the establishment of Fursungi and Uruli Devachi municipal councils. The completion of these procedures will formalize the formation of the Fursungi and Uruli Devachi Municipal Councils. However, it is expected that these processes will take at least two months to reach completion.
