Renowned Entrepreneur Sudhir Mehta Calls for Strategic Urban Planning in Pune – Pune Media
Pune, 9th September 2023: Sudhir Mehta, a distinguished serial entrepreneur, celebrated columnist, and the Chairman & Managing Director of Pinnacle Industries, has taken to social media to address the pressing need for comprehensive urban planning in Pune. In a thought-provoking tweet, he emphasized the urgency of transforming Pune into a well-organized city with meticulous long-term planning.
Mehta’s tweet underscored the challenges faced by Pune as it grapples with the consequences of rapid, unplanned expansion across residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. He drew parallels between Pune and Mumbai, highlighting the need for strategic urban development.
He stated, “#Pune, much like Mumbai, is in dire need of a New Pune characterized by meticulous organization and 100-year long-term planning.”
One of the key issues raised by Mehta is the absence of clearly defined peak hours or fixed traffic patterns in Pune. Unlike many major cities, Pune’s residents often traverse the city in unpredictable ways, with commuters traveling between distant areas. For instance, individuals residing in Hadapsar may find employment in Hinjawadi, while others from Aundh commute to Kharadi. This leads to a perpetual state of crisscrossing traffic and inefficiencies in the transportation network.

To address this challenge, Mehta called for harnessing technology to map these intricate movements and scientifically analyze the resulting data to discern genuine traffic patterns. He suggested that the upcoming Development Plan for Pune should prioritize creating more manageable traffic flows and align zoning accordingly.
Mehta’s tweet has generated significant attention, with numerous individuals responding to his call for strategic urban planning. Sudhir Mehta, a former president of the Maratha Chamber of Commerce Industries and Agriculture (MCCIA) Pune, is known for his insightful perspectives on business and city development.
As discussions on the future of Pune’s urban landscape gain momentum, Mehta’s vision for a meticulously planned and organized city has sparked important conversations among residents, urban planners, and policymakers. The call for long-term, data-driven solutions is seen as a crucial step toward addressing Pune’s urban challenges and fostering sustainable growth.
