Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC), an Urban Local Body (ULB) was formed in 1982 and was primarily an Industrial Hub. However after 2001, there was a spurge in the residential sector and the population of 10.06 lakhs during 2001 started increasing at the rate of 11% to reach 16 lakhs in 2010. The city is strategically located at 160 kms from India’s financial center Mumbai and about 10 kms from one of the contry’s major IT hubs, Pune. Pimpri Chinchwad which developed as a supporting township for Pune, has now emerged as an alternative in its own right with strong auto and auto-ancillary industries at its core. The growth drivers of the city are slowly getting diversified and steadily shifting towards new clusters of Chakan, Hinjewadi, Talegaon and Talawade IT Park of Pune.

As a growing city and considering changing requirements of the city, it was envisaged that major changes will be required in operation and management of its services. The vision formulated during 2007 was aimed at ensuring the economic development of the city along with improving the quality of life of the citizens of Pimpri-Chinchwad. The important areas identified were, providing universal access of municipal services to the urban poor, improvement in the standard of education and providing an efficient civic administration.
