The Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar Municipal Corporation (CSMC) marked a significant step in enhancing its infrastructure as Commissioner and Administrator G Srikanth unveiled new machinery and vehicles for the Drainage Department on Saturday. This equipment included three cutting-edge power-roding machines, nine pod sets, and two trucks specifically designated for the anti-encroachment department.
The dedication ceremony witnessed the presence of key figures, including Additional Municipal Commissioner Ranjeet Patil, Saurabh Joshi, City Engineer A B Deshmukh, Executive Engineer Amol Kulkarni, alongside department heads, officers, and employees. During the event, officials showcased the functionalities of the newly acquired machinery, giving the Administrator an in-depth demonstration.
The machines' efficacy was immediately put into action as they cleared the drainage line from the SSC Board office to the Peer Bazar area. Srikanth conducted a comprehensive inspection of the trucks, each valued at ₹9 lakh.
Speaking on the occasion, Srikanth highlighted the significance of this technological upgrade, emphasising how these state-of-the-art machines are poised to elevate the corporation's service standards for the city's residents.
