Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced that Pune’s development plan would be passed within two months. Fadnavis, who was speaking at Credai National Conference, also talked about speeding up the decision making process related to the real estate sector.
Addressing the real estate developers as the nation builders, Fadnavis said that people present at the conclave control 70 per cent of the real estate business in India.
He said, “Earlier, we thought that India lives in villages and hence we neglected the cities. We tried to stop urbanisation and in the process, we stopped planning for the cities. This is why today cities have slums and sometimes in a degenerate state.”
He said that the government has passed 70 development plans and by December 2017, the state will have passed every district’s regional plan.
The government will also pass a policy for affordable housing soon.
Asking the organisation to partner with the government in its mission ‘Housing for All by 2020’, the Chief Minister said the government will help the realtors in all possible ways.
