An action plan will be prepared in three days for the three-member panel which has been asked to review illegal constructions in rural areas of Pune,Nashik and Nagpur,State Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat said Tuesday.

“The action plan will help the panel in preparing the report concerning illegal constructions in three months,” Thorat told Newsline.

The minister said the committee is also expected to take the help of the urban development department,rural development department and the revenue department in the respective cities for preparing its report.

The committee is supposed to prepare a complete report for these areas on issues from pulling down constructions to the action to be taken.

At present,there are around 2.5 lakh illegal constructions in the district,which is a 120 per cent rise compared to the Regional Plan of 1997 where there were 1.13 lakh illegal constructions.

Pune district administration has already listed around 8,853 illegal structures in 13 taluks,with Maval and Haveli topping the list.

Of these,3,634 have been issued notices,while offences have been registered in 6,019 cases. Only two have been regularised so far.

Sub-divisional officer (Haveli) Avinash Hadgal said they have prepared an action plan for Haveli taluk for which a three-pronged approach has been adopted.

This includes identifying the structures that are occupied,those that can be regularised and those that are impossible to regularise.

The action plan will be implemented in three months,Hadgal added.
