Flat owner to move Supreme Court against irresponsible behavior shown by Pune Municipal Corporation
Kashyap Vyas, a Pune based social worker has filed a petition against the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) for its irresponsible behavior against a complaint. Vyas has claimed that the PMC is working hand in glove with the Tanker Mafia in Pune and are taking lakhs of rupees from the residents.

Vyas, who is one of the flat owners in a co-op housing society in Hadapsar in Pune, Mahrashtra, and is waiting for the 'occupation certificate' to be given by the Pune Municipality, so that he can reside in his dream house. But the PMC is not giving the certificate to the society.

One fine day, he called up the Pune Municipal Commissioner, and asked him regarding the non-availability of the occupancy certificate to his society and to provide sufficient, clean and hygienic drinking water supply. But in return the commissioner gave him a irresponsible and vague reply, "Did you inquire about the water availability in the area prior to buying Property."

Disgusted with the reply of the commissioner, Vyas has now decided to file a Public Interest Litigation with the Supreme Court of India regarding the non-availability of occupation certificate to the society as well as lack of sufficient, clean and hygienic drinking water.

Vyas said, "Here in our area at least 5000 innocent citizens are consuming filthy, polluted, dirty tanker water, which is costing 12 to 15 lacs per annum to the society. I am sure of connivance of vested interest group behind this conspiracy. I spoke to Pune Municipal Commissioner in December 2013 but got very irresponsible and vague response."

He is saying that, "Once permission is granted to construct the buildings, it is the responsibility of Pune Municipality Corporation to provide the civic and infrastructure needs to the citizens or they should not grant permission to Real Estate Developers to construct the colony of buildings."
