After the Malin landslide, Pune district administration is all set to ready a blueprint of hilly areas that are prone to landslides. In a three step phase, the administration is set to ready a blueprint which would be forwarded to the state government after consultation with the Geological Survey of India (GSI) by September 15.
While the administration has initiated the survey of hilly areas including Bhor, Velhe, Mulshi, Maval, Junnar and Ambegaon talukas, the same would be done for the Pune division as well. In a recent conference district collector Saurabh Rao said that he is expecting the preliminary first phase of survey to end by the weekend and the second and third phase would follow, before the report is forwarded to the government.
The landslide management system focuses on generating data of landslide areas in the district and then putting before the government, the requirements with respect to the same. “This kind of data is not there.Malin was a lesson for us — we need to have data on hilly terrain and preventive measures,” said Rao on the initiative.
The first level of the initiative is to initiate a survey at the village level through inquiries as well as to understand whether they are secure or not, which is to be assessed by the talathi and gram sevak. Then the second level will have the Geological Survey and Development Agency (GSDA) geologists assessing the data provided from the village level and it would be forwarded to the Geological Survey of India (GSI) for a final review. The final report would be forwarded to the state government.
“The first level assessment should come in this week, followed by the GSDA scientists’ review and the final review will be given by the GSI scientists by September 15,” said Rao.

The review would pertain to geological movement, cracks in the soil etc. Rao added that the database would be readied for each of the villages and would concern prevention of soil erosion, depletion of soil etc. After considering the report, step towards displacement would be proposed after getting consent from the state government and the villagers.
Rao said that as the initiative was being implemented for the Pune district, the divisional commissioner Vikas Deshmukh would replicate the same for the entire division.
While for Malin, the review meeting was to be done with all stakeholders present, the compensation amount has come in and the district administration has readied the list of survivors already.
