The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation has started the land measurement work for the proposed eastern ring road project in Purandar tehsil.
The state organisation has so measured land at five villages in Purandar tehsil. It has completed 98% of land measurement work for the proposed western ring road project.
MSRDC executive engineer Sandeep Patil said the authorities wanted to complete the land survey for the eastern ring road by December. “We are calculating valuations of the land that will be acquired for the western ring road. The state government has stated that the compensation will be given to the farmers on the line of the Samruddhi Mumbai-Nagpur highway project. As a result, the farmers are likely to get almost five times more than the existing rates. This will make the land acquisition process smooth.”
The 69km proposed western ring road and the 105km proposed eastern ring road are crucial to the new ring road plan around Pune and PImpri Chinchwad.
