Pune government had approved two new projects similar to existing Aamby Valley and Lavasa projects under the hill station policy of 1996 in the Pune district.
PUNE: Maharashtra Valley View and Aqualand Infrastructure, the two projects approved by the state government are still stranded as the developers are yet to submit the master plans for these two hill station projects to the PMRDA.
Pune government had approved two new projects similar to existing Aamby Valley and Lavasa projects under the hill station policy of 1996 in the Pune district. These two projects had received location clearances years ago. T
In a statement by PMRDA (Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority) on Thursday, an official said there is no progress as the builders have not submitted the master plans with necessary clearances for the projects to be taken forward. “As of now, both the proposals are in their initial stages. The hill stations are proposed in the villages in the Mulshi taluka. They are spread over 6,000 to 7,000 acres each,” the official said.
The Maharashtra Valley View is spread across the Aambvane and Manjgaon villages. The Aqualand Infrastructure, on the other hand, is spread across the Lavharde, Mulshi, Varak and other villages.
A source in the Maharashtra Valley View project blamed the hold-up in water source clearances for the delay in the master plan. On the other hand the Aqualand Infrastructure representative said while their master plan for land use is ready, they are awaiting clearances concerning the water source.
A senior town planning expert said the hill station policy might no longer be a great draw for the citizens because of other integrated projects within the city. The expert added that while the objective behind the projects was to decongest other hill stations, lower demand in the post-pandemic era may not entice the developers to initiate the process.
