PUNE: The anti-encroachment squad of the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) on Monday demolished an unauthorized construction in Akurdi.

Shirish Poreddy, spokesperson of the PCMC’s engineering department, said the razed construction had ground plus three floors and covered a total area of 4,500 sq ft. Executive engineer Ramdas Tambe supervised the drive.

The PCMC has demolished a total of 27 unauthorized constructions within the municipal limits in the past one month. The other 26 razed constructions covered a total area of 18,000 sq ft. Out of that 19 structures were built in March 2012, while the remaining are older constructions.

“The civic body has been conducting the demolition drive against the unauthorized constructions as per the Bombay high court’s directives.

I want to clear the misunderstanding that the civic body had stopped the drive, as that is not the case.

The PCMC will continue with the drive.

The civic body has already submitted one report to the court,” municipal commissioner Rajeev Jadhav had said on Friday.
