Fulfilling its assurance to the protesting villagers of Uruli Devachi and Phursungi, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) administration has proposed to extend the employment contract for a member of family whose land was acquired by the civic body for the dumping ground in the two villages.
In a proposal tabled in the standing committee, Municipal Commissioner Vikas Deshmukh said villagers of Uruli-Devachi and Phursungi have been protesting for the past few years against the dumping of solid waste in land in their villages. Pointing out the health concerns of the villagers due to the dumping ground, they have many times stopped PMC vehicles from entering their village.
The villagers have been enduring pollution of water, air and land. Therefore, the civic administration time and again carried out development works in the village and accepted their demand of a job to one member of the family who have to part land for garbage depot.

Accordingly, the PMC accommodated 62 persons of the village in civic service on contract of six months. Now, the contract is coming to end. “The contract of the members of families that have to part land for PMC purpose needs to be extended,” he said, adding, the efforts are also going on to recruit them permanently in PMC duty.
Of the 62 members, one has died while another had many absent marks despite reminders from the civic body. Thus, the PMC will extend the contract of 60 members for next six months. The civic body will pay consolidated salary of Rs 10,781.
Meanwhile, residents of Phursungi have passed a resolution in the general body to oppose the state government move to include Phursungi in the merger of 38 villages in the civic jurisdiction.
