PUNE: Nearly 100 plot owners who had handed over their land for the Maan-Mhalunge town planning scheme will be allotted demarcated plots on Monday as part of the first phase of distribution.

The scheme announced in 2018 has finally picked up momentum with 253 plot owners being given demarcated land in the coming week, officials from Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) said.

Land owners who had given up their land for the project will get 50% back in the same scheme with infrastructural work. These land owners were given property cards last month.

The Maan-Mhalunge town planning scheme is based on Gujarat’s model. The proposed scheme has 5,800 beneficiaries and enables landowners to get back 50% of the developed land in the same area for which the arbitration process was carried out.

“The plots that are clear are being handed over to the land owners in a process that will commence on Monday,” PMRDA deputy collector Ramdas Jagtap said.

The total scheme is spread over 250 hectares with 319 plots demarcated in Mhalunge and 32 plots in Maan. Post demarcation, the authority will start with infrastructure work. A budgetary allocation of Rs100 crore has been made this financial year. Residential plots will be taken by plot owners.

PMRDA will get the remaining plots where it is looking at attracting huge investments. It was showcased as the model town planning scheme in the Magnetic Meet in the state three years ago, and the foundation stone was laid on November 15, 2018.
