Earmark 30 acres at Shenda for Kolhapur IT park: Deputy CM

October 7, 2023

KOLHAPUR: Deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar on Thursday urged authorities to spare 30 acres of land at Shenda Park in Kolhapur to develop an IT park.

The decision was taken at a meeting in Mumbai. Pawar, during his last visit to Kolhapur had assured residents of setting up an IT park. He had even claimed that multi-national companies have zeroed in on the city to set up operations.

“I have asked the authorities to ensure that 30 acres of land from Shenda Park should be used to develop an IT Park. Currently, the land is with Mahatma Phule Krushi Vidyapeeth and I have asked authorities to take appropriate steps to make sure another 50 acres of land is available to the agriculture university,” Ajit said in Mumbai.

The deputy chief minister said Shenda Park is a suitable place to set up an IT park as it is close to the airport and also to the Pune-Bengaluru highway. The deputy chief minister has also asked authorities to draft the plan for the same as early as possible.

“If the work does not start soon, the land will be given back to the university,” he added.

Currently, Kolhapur has a Science and Technology Park developed by the state government. Pawar also asked authorities to address the issues related to the STP as well.

Find land for sub-centre of MUHS

Pawar also asked Kolhapur collector Rahul Rekhawar to find space for setting up sub-centre of Maharashtra University of Health Sciences, Nashik.

He said the sub-centre will help the medical students from south-Maharashtra to comply the documentation issues.

He suggested that if the land from the premise of Rajarshi Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj Medical College is available then use it to set up sub-centre of MUHS.
