The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) had recently undertaken the project of laying a pipeline from the Khadakwasla Dam to Parvati and the Cantonment water works run by the civic body. However, now a part of the project has hit a hurdle with the Pune Cantonment Board (PCB) seeking Rs 94 lakh fee before permitting the digging work while the PMC urging the PCB to adjust the same with Rs 11 crore dues that it owes to the civic body.

The PMC recently completed the Rs 175-crore work of laying the second pipeline from the dam to Parvati water works and laid the foundation stone for Rs 110-crore work of laying the 6.5-km pipeline from Parvati to Cantonment water Works. The PMC water supply department in February sought the PCB’s permission for road digging and repair for laying 2,200 mm cast iron water pipeline from dhobi ghat to Cantonment water works on Solapur road as the area comes under the jurisdiction of the Cantonment board.
