There has been a request to allocate 3 per cent of the annual total budget amount for Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd (PMPML) from the municipal corporations. The PMPML director Prashant Jagtap on Monday said there should be separate budgetary provisions for the transport utility in annual civic budgets.
I have requested the PMC and PCMC municipal commissioners to allocate 3 per cent of the total budget amount for the PMPML. This allocation should be permanent part of civic budgets said Jagtap.
Jagtap has submitted the demands to Pune and PCMC municipal commissioners and Mayors. Meanwhile,Jagtap has also demanded that the PMC and PCMC should make available Rs 90 crore and Rs 60 crore respectively to facilitate purchase of 300 new buses.
The bus purchase is pending because the civic bodies are not supporting the PMPML said Jagtap.
