Pre-monsoon preparations are in full swing in Pune, with the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) working hard to clean up drains across the city. PMC has set a deadline of May 15 to complete nullah cleaning work.

Dinkar Gojare, head of the drainage department at PMC, stated that cleaning of sewage and drainage pipelines started on March 26. "Our target is to clean up all priority works such as stagnation, crucial culverts, and important stretches where we can remove the waste. We have prepared a plan and listed down the spots, providing it to the responsible contractors and staff to work on it day-wise," he added.

We are receiving CSR support, and such areas have been under a cleaning drive for the past eight days. Additionally, with the help of the vehicles department, we have started de-filtering lakes," he added.
