PCMC Beats Pune To Rank Among India 10 Cleanest Cities

– Anil Pharande, Chairman – Pharande Spaces

The verdict by Swachh Survekshan 2016, a survey undertaken by the Ministry of Urban Development February 15, 2016 to monitor how far the Union Government’s Swachh Bharat Mission has progressed, was an eye-opener for India. While the multiple award-winning Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation ranked 9th on the list of India’s 10 Cleanest Cities, Pune – administered by the Pune Municipal Corporation, did not make it to the Top 10 list at all.

punawale_pharandeAltogether, the Swachh Survekshan 2016 survey studied 73 cities having populations of 10 lakh or above, and focused on aspects such availability of public and private latrines, the efficiency of services delivery, solid waste management and infrastructure development. Always at the forefront when it comes to providing a healthy, wholesome life to its residents, PCMC had in the recent past added to its solid waste processing capabilities via a new garbage depot.

This mechanised plant processes 500 tonnes of garbage into compost useful for agriculture on a daily basis. Moreover, PCMC has set the national trend in its progressive and scientific management of landfills, as well as its initiative to turn waste plastic into energy.

Another variable which the Swachh Survekshan 2016 survey focused on was the effectiveness of communication in the identified cities, specifically their citizens’ access to information and education, and the civic authorities’ proactive approach to in Behaviour Change Communication (BCC). BCC is a very important interactive function via which a city’s governing authorities communicate with the city’s population to ensure that initiatives to help the city to grow and prosper are understood and adopted.

bannerWithout a doubt, PCMC has been consistent in upholding its promises to provide the very best living standards to its residents. Therefore, the fact that it has been numbered in the 10 Cleanest Cities of India comes as no surprise. The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation is a veritable masterpiece of urban planning, driven by an unrelenting focus on infrastructure, sustainability and future-readiness. It offers a sharp contrast to the confused and retrograde approach being followed by the Pune Municipal Corporation, which has not been able to deliver on the functions and aspects that make a city worth living in.

The fact that PCMC has been able to come out a winner on the list of India’s 10 Cleanest Cities is all the more remarkable if we consider that this region is home to the thriving MIDC industrial belt, as well as the Hinjawadi Infotech Park. These hubs are among the country’s most prolific employment generators, causing countless new skilled professionals to make PCMC their home every year.

Despite the immense complexities this presents to the city authorities, PCMC has consistently risen to the challenges and continues to provide people from all walks of life and income segments with a wholesome, healthy environment to live and work in. It has been able to do this is by encouraging the development of integrated townships and ensuring that all real estate development happens with strict compliance to its town planning norms.

In PCMC, open spaces and green ‘lung’ pockets are available in every sector to control pollution and provide citizens with places to meet and relax, and wide roads and over/underpasses allow for free-flowing traffic. Water and electricity supply is several times more reliable than in the Pune Municipal Corporation, and highly efficient civic sanitation services ensure that all residential and commercial zones are kept clean.

Thanks to these factors, there is no doubt that PCMC will move further up the rankings over the next few years. In the meantime, it will continue to focus on maintaining its well-deserved reputation for being the best region in the country for people to work, live and prosper in.

Punawale – West Pune’s Hottest Real Estate Location

While real estate is a constantly changing and evolving concept, some parameters remain constant – the three success mantras are still Location, Location and Location. In this respect, Western Pune is an important new chapter in the annals of Pune real estate’s success story. Pune’s burgeoning western corridor is today the most preferred destination for home buyers and real estate investors not only from Pune, but also from Mumbai and various other parts of Maharashtra.

Because of the rapidly increasing demand for residential and commercial properties, West Pune has in the past delivered some of the most attractive real estate locations. One of the most exciting new locations in this corridor is Punawale.

To a large extent, Punawale owes its fast rise to fame to the fact that it is located very close to the thriving Information Technology parks in Hinjewadi and Tathawade, as well as to the Pune-Mumbai Expressway. At the same time, Punawale offers quick access to Wakad and has a number of good schools, hospitals and shopping malls close at hand. With the arrival of superlative residential projects by reputed developers at Punawale, this area is now the location of choice for IT/ITeS professionals working in Hinjewadi and Tathawade, as well as from buyers from the MIDC manufacturing hub who are attracted by the better lifestyle options now available there.

This combination of factors has had a big impact on demand for properties in Punawale, and has led to the launch of many new residential projects. Puneville, a luxury township recently launched by leading developers Pharande Spaces, is one of the most notable examples of Punawale’s massive image makeover on the Pune real estate map.

“Like Moshi, Ravet, Spine Road, Wakad and many other highly successful real estate locations in PCMC, Punawale has the added advantage of being located at the fulcrum of various major road development projects,” says Anil Pharande, CMD – Pharande Spaces. “In fact, Punawale is now seeing the fastest development after Aundh, Baner and Wakad have become almost fully exploited and come close to complete saturation. Moreover, the development of this region is firmly supported by the unlimited cash reserves of the PCMC, which is Asia’s wealthiest Municipal Corporation.”

Backed by a diverse and vibrant economy which provides a convincing complement to that of Pune, real estate growth in Western Pune is driven by its prolific manufacturing sector, which is represented by a number of national and global industry giants. This region is seeing a steady and growing pipeline of employment opportunities generated by its manufacturing and Information Technology industries.

These inherent advantages have ensured that areas like Punawale see instant absorption of housing projects across budget brackets. Employment-driven real estate locations like Punawale also receive the maximum attention from property investors.

“Employment generation is by far the most important catalyst driving real estate demand and supply in Pune,” says Sanjay Bajaj, Managing Director – Pune, JLL India. “Home buyers in a city with such a vibrant economy will at all times seek to find options as close as possible to their places of work. This helps them rationalize their daily commutes and thereby gain more time with the family, cut down on their monthly fuel expenses and also preserve their health and mental wellbeing. In a rapidly growing market like PCMC, proximity to workplace is therefore a very critical criterion that home buyers focus on. In this respect, Punawale has become one of the most desirable locations in PCMC.”

While the initial demand profile in this region was first geared towards mid-income housing, it now draws demand for luxury homes as well. The Punawale micro-market is especially suited for large integrated township projects, which offer one-stop solutions in terms of self-sufficient infrastructure, superior amenities and quick access to schools, healthcare, shopping and public transport.

In Punawale, Western Pune has received yet its most iconic real estate destination to date – a location that is eminently placed to take this prosperous, infrastructure-driven region’s real estate story to the next level.

Puneville also features a completely unique sky walkway that circumnavigates the residential towers, effectively connecting all the towers to a central green area and children play zones.

Though Puneville offers buyers a choice between 2, 3 and 4 BHK apartments, the 4BHK configuration is by far the most preferred among home buyers who value privacy and spaciousness. A 4 BHK flat in Puneville is not only the ultimate address but also the smartest lifestyle choice.
