Pune, 29th November 2023: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has initiated a campaign to address the issue of abandoned vehicles, including four-wheelers, two-wheelers, and three-wheelers, causing traffic obstructions on roads and footpaths in the city. Throughout the campaign, 139 such vehicles have been seized. Madhav Jagtap, Deputy Commissioner of the Anti-Encroachment Department at PMC, provided information about the ongoing initiative.

Abandoned and unrepaired vehicles have been a persistent problem within the municipal limits, leading to traffic disruptions, accumulation of garbage, and unpleasant odours. In response to numerous complaints from citizens, the PMC has taken action to remove these idle vehicles from roads and footpaths.

PMC encourages citizens to cooperate in this effort and remove their vehicles from public spaces. The seized vehicles can be redeemed within one month by paying the removal charges. Notices are being placed on the identified vehicles, providing 7 days for the owners to remove them. Failure to comply within this timeframe results in the confiscation of the vehicle by the PMC.

For reporting abandoned and unrepaired vehicles, citizens are urged to send complaints along with photos and location details to the PMC through WhatsApp at 9689931900. This campaign aims to enhance traffic flow, cleanliness, and the overall environment within the city.
