The Mahalunge town planning scheme in Pune serves as a model development scheme for all the other 45 town planning schemes in the pipeline. Covering an area of 700 acres and engaging about 6,500 landowners, the planning for the scheme at Mahalunge near Hinjewadi IT Park is already underway, with nearly 90 per cent of the landowners agreeing to the acquisition.
Pune serves as a fine example of town planning, with a total of 46 townships having been proposed. Town planning offers many benefits to the city by organizing present-day urban development and paving the way for a highly developed and sustainable future. Some of the key benefits of town planning are:
Controlling and enhancing existing development
Managing resources effectively through strategic planning
Shaping community living by attending to the needs and challenges of an evolving society
Protecting and enhancing the natural environment
Improving the quality of life in terms of economic sustainability and cultural sensibility
