In addition to these infrastructure projects, the government has also approved 93 new schools under the Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil Jeevanpran Pratisthan (KBPJP) scheme for Pune city. It plans on adding another 100 schools by 2020 across Maharashtra for providing education for students from Class 5 onwards until Class 12.
What would be the impact of the construction of the ring road?
Pune’s firms, particularly those in the IT industry, would have better accessibility thanks to the construction of a ring road around the city. This would lead to more companies opening up shops in Pune, which would increase employment and stimulate the economy. Real estate developers in Pune will be in great demand. Businesses would gain from the increased visitor flow since it would present more options for marketing and advertising.
