City Anchor Pimpri Civic Body Plans to Rope in Expert Doctors to Help in Establishing Centre, no Plans for Cancer Hospital Now
URING his draft budget presentation today, Pimpri–Chinchwad Municipal Commissioner Asheesh Sharma said the PCMC has made a provision of Rs 10 crore for setting up of a cancer screening centre with assistance from Ta ta Memorial Hospital, Mumbai.

"Though as of now, we have no plan to set up a cancer hospital, we are taking the important step of setting up cancer screening centre.

This will go a long way in helping patients who are diagnosed in first stage of cancer,” he said.

Sharma was emphatic that cancer screening centre was need of the hour. "We are planning to rope in expert doctors to help us set up cancer screening centre. It will be a major step by the civic body," he said.

On the protests by citizens for cleaning up the Pavana river, Sharma said irrigation officials are taking care of the desilting of the river.

"Even otherwise since we expect cent per cent sewage treatment once the four new STPs being started this year are completed, we would not have the situation of releasing untreated waste in the river. The work of connecting all the nullahs is going on at a brisk pace,” he said.

At the divisional ward level, he said he has doubled the bud get for development works.

The A division budget will go up from Rs 43 crore to Rs 78 crore, B division budget will go up from Rs 44 crore to Rs 80 crore, C division budget will jump from Rs 44 crore to Rs 83 crore and D division budget will scale up from Rs 46 crore to Rs 79 crore.

Sharma said the targets three main sources of revenue have also been revised in view of the good inflow.

"This fiscal, we had set an octroi revenue target of Rs 760 crore, but till date we have Rs 900 crore. For next fiscal, we have set an octroi revenue target of Rs 1,114 crore," he said. The property tax target will be Rs 135 crore. "Last fiscal, we had a property tax target of Rs 100 crore."

Similarly, the construction and building permission revenue target also goes up to Rs 140 crore.

"This is because we had set a target of Rs 84 crore and we so far received Rs 132 crore. This has forced us to revised the target for next fiscal," he said.

On the flyover front, he said the Nashik Phata, Chinchwad and Bhosari flyover works are already pacing along. "The Empire Estate and Dange chowk flyover work will start this year.

The Pimpri–Chinchwad Municipal Corporation is spending nearly Rs 150 crore in constructing these flyovers with the help of the World Bank.
