The proposed Pimpri-Chinchwad Court Complex is slated to be situated in Moshi, and the Maharashtra state government has approved a total expenditure of Rs 86 crore 24 lakh 51 thousand 166 for this project. The PWD, Pune District Administration, has invited tenders from qualified and competent contractors, organizations, and companies based on the conditions in the B-2 pattern through the online tender system.


The e-tender availability period is from September 11, 2023, to October 3, 2023, with a pre-tender discussion scheduled for interested contractors on September 20, 2023, at the Public Works Department, Pune. The tender opening date is set for October 5, 2023. All tender details are accessible on the website www.mahapwd.gov.in.


The issue of the Pimpri-Chinchwad Court building had languished for several years due to a lack of political will. The local lawyers’ association and legal experts had consistently urged the government to address this matter.


MLA Landge took the initiative to champion this cause, raising the issue during the tenure of then Chief Minister of the state, Devendra Fadnavis. However, progress faced delays during the Mahavikas Aghadi’s rule. It was only with the support of the state Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis that funds were allocated for the court building in November 2022.


Additionally, an advisory body was appointed to oversee the project, and construction work subsequently commenced. The current government has now set the stage for the actual construction work to begin following the tender process, with the court building expected to be available for Pimpri-Chinchwad residents within the next two years.


MLA Landge expressed his satisfaction, highlighting that the decision to construct a building for the Pimpri-Chinchwad Court was made under the ‘Vision-2020’ initiative. The four-story spacious building in Moshi represents a significant milestone for the region, and it is a source of pride for the legal community and residents.


He called upon the PWD department to complete the tender process within the stipulated timeline and commence construction work. It is anticipated that the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister will participate in the groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for November 2023.
