    Pune and PCMC should agree for a joint entry – which will give it the scale and efficiency allowing for a faster ROI. Any gap in funding required can always be raised through alternative means like PPP, Industry contribution, LT loans etc.

  • Nasik urgently needs industrial development…more companies should invest in Nasik…no doubt there are good companies already here….here construction is in full boom but needs more industries…

    NASIK/Nashik has always been neglected. There was a project to get more IT companies in NASIK and an IT park was also created yet due to political intervention it was shut down. NASIK being in close proximity to Mumbai and Pune should and is the best destination to becoming the next IT hub of Maharashtra, with potential for other fields too and it can take a lot of burden off cities like Mumbai & Pune yet there is no political will to do it. People from Nasik go to Mumbai & Pune to work. Let’s get Nasik done 1st as this city can seriously cut down the growing population expulsions of people going to work in Mumbai and Pune thus keeping the population in these cities under control and also helping the leading firms in getting employees at lower wages and land too at exceptionally low rate for offices.
