Activists demand SRA rules to be published in Marathi

But the PMC has published the rules in English

PUNE: Citizen activists have taken a strong objection to a five-page long list of rules and regulation on the Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) project published by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), calling for suggestions and objections from citizens in English language. They believe the notice will go completely unnoticed by slum dwellers, who are the biggest stakeholders in SRA schemes.

 

“Unless and until the PMC publishes the rules in Marathi, we do not see the public notice receiving any response at all,” Sajag Nagrik Manch president Vivek Velankar said, reacting to the public notice released by the Corporation on July 27.

 

The list of amendments in the SRA rules have been held back from public scrutiny for a long time as the PMC and the SRA continued implementing the rules on an ad hoc basis without calling for public suggestions and objections, which is mandatory.

 

In fact, the amended rules had not even been tabled before the general body of the Corporation, annoying the corporators.

 

The fresh set of SRA rules gives sweeping powers to the autonomous SRA, sidelining the Corporation at many places. Interestingly, one reason why an independent machinery was set up for the SRA was that most corporations in the state had miserably failed in implementing the SRA schemes within their jurisdiction, with officials complaining of constant interference by elected representatives.

 

In view of this,  it is all the more important that the slum dwellers be made aware of the nuances of the rules, the Sajag Nagrik Manch told municipal commissioner Mahesh Pathak.

 

With the state government issuing similar public notices all over the state, it is unlikely the Corporation will take upon itself to translate the rules fearing as it could lead to unwanted interpretations. “We would wait for the state government to take the first step in this connection,” a top official told Sakal Times.

 

NOTICE UNNOTICED

- Unless and until the PMC publishes the rules in Marathi, we do not see the public notice receiving any response at all, Sajag Nagrik Manch president Vivek Velankar said.

- He said the notice will go completely unnoticed by slum dwellers, who are the biggest stakeholders.
