Increased workload: Posts vacant, difficult to take up projects: Civic admn
The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has knocked on the doors of the state government with a request to sanction posts of an additional municipal commissioner and a city engineer. The request has been made by the civic administration that is finding it difficult to cope with the available resources in comparison to the growing workload, especially related to illegal construction.
Officials said PCMC has only one additional municipal commissioner in Prakash Kadam compared to three in Pune Municipal Corporation. "Even in smaller cities, there are two or more additional commissioners. But despite growing area of work, PCMC has only one senior officer," said a senior official.
Municipal Commissioner Shrikar Pardeshi confirmed that his administration has sent a proposal to the state government.
"As of now, we have an acting city engineer. If the state appoints a long term city engineer, we will be able to focus on the task at hand on priority basis," he said.
Officials said with posts of senior officials vacant, the Pardeshi administration is struggling to take up projects.
