This came after a petition by Shiv Sena corporator Seema Salve against the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) for construction activities, including a housing scheme for urban poor in the zone where no development is allowed as per law.
The demarcation would affect not only the upcoming housing project but also some MIDC areas. Salve had alleged that the housing project violated the Works of Defence Act and did not have necessary environmental clearance.
The Defence authorities staed in the Bombay High Court that the PCMC overstepped its limits in going ahead with construction of the 11,760-unit housing project at Sector 22 without obtaining their clearance.
