The Maharashtra government announced on Friday the appointment of Rajendra Bhosale, a 2008-batch IAS officer, as the new commissioner of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC). This decision came a day before the announcement of the Lok Sabha election dates.

Previously, Bhosale served as the district collector of Mumbai Suburban since February of last year. His experience includes holding positions such as chief executive officer of the Sangli Zilla Parishad and district collector in Ahmednagar and Solapur. Additionally, he served as the Additional Divisional Commissioner of Pune division for eight months in 2020.
