Pune Builders Seek Relaxing Of Construction Rules
PUNE: Responding to complaints from builders, Pimpri-Chinchwad mayor Yogesh Behl said that only the civic general body can make any change to the rules for constructions in the bus rapid transit system (BRTS) corridors.
“A delegation of 25 builders met me two days ago and said that the strict rules for constructions in the BRTS corridor have made it difficult for them to undertake construction in the corridors,” Behl told TOI.
Behl said that the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has framed new rules for construction within 100 metres along the eight BRTS routes and four feeder routes which are called BRTS corridors.
While allowing double floor space index (FSI), the civic body also made it mandatory to double the parking space. If the area of the plot is more than 1,000 sq.m., the owner/developer will have to develop the parking area and give 25 per cent of it to the PCMC free.
