The Maharashtra government has on Thursday approved the merger of 23 areas surrounding Pune in the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) limits, reported Hindustan Times. With the addition of these new areas, the city’s boundary will now increase from 331 square km to 485 square km.

The merger order was signed by the Minister for Urban Development Eknath Shinde, confirmed Nationalist Congress Party’s city unit president and Hadapsar MLA Chetan Tupe.

“Minister Eknath Shinde has signed the proposal for merging 23 villages in the PMC. Deputy Chief Minister and Pune district's Guardian Minister Ajit Pawar has been aggressive about merging these villages into the PMC limits. As the minister has given the nod, the Urban Development Department will make a public resolution for it by completing the administrative process soon,” Tupe told HT.

According to the report, the merger will prove helpful to the NCP and the Congress for the civic polls in 2022 as the two parties have political control over these areas.
