Sagging revenue: PCMC to auction ad spaces at junctions

In a bid to boost its sagging economic reserves, the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) will auction advertising space at 12 junctions in the city.

This is part of the civic administration’s efforts to generate new revenue streams for the corporation. The bidder who quotes the highest rate will get the advertising rights of the respective junctions.

The PCMC had formed a committee to scout for new revenue streams to meet its increasing expenses and supplement octroi income. The committee tabled a report suggesting the municipal corporation should auction advertising space at junctions, among several other recommendations.

It also suggested that a premium should be charged for locations such as Aundh Hinjewadi Road, old Pune-Mumbai highway, Nigdi-Bhosari and Aundh Ravet Road.

Goel Ganga Group celebrates 25th anniversary by giving free flat, car and other gifts

It was a scintillating evening of dance, music and an exciting and entertaining game show, hosted by none other that the vivacious & charming, Mandira Bedi, at Ganga Dham Lawns. The event was a celebration of 25 years completed by the Goel Ganga Group, and the group’s way of rewarding their loyal customers with prizes & gifts that literally swept them off their feet.
The evening started with a spell-binding and thrilling game of tambola, in which all the customers who had booked a flat with Goel Ganga Group in the last 6 months, participated. And Bingo! The first six full-house winners were on stage to play another exciting game of dice, with Mandira Bedi.

The exhilaration resulted, in the form of free gifts for these 6 winners. In fact, perhaps, for the 1st time in India a builder gifted his customer a bumper prize of a FLAT FREE, that too the one booked of his choice!

* Savita Solwat was the lucky winner of a free flat, worth Rs.30 lakhs.
* Manju Dhanashetty – the 2nd winner, was gifted a Honda Jazz car,
* Avinash Mohite – the 3rd winner took @ Home furniture worth Rs.2 lakhs,
* Shravan Kumar Singh – the 4th winner bagged electronic goods worth Rs.1 lakh,
* Rama Bhatnagar - the 5th winner won a Yamaha FZ-16 bike &
* Hemant Kolhe – the 6th winner took home a Samsung refrigerator.

Said an excited Mandira Bedi, “Good value ban gaya UNBELIEVABLE!!!”, as she saw the winners bag their dream gifts.

The winners were lauded by PMC Mayor, Mohansingh Rajpal, who was present at the occasion. He also congratulated the Goel Ganga Group for initiating such an innovative idea and generously presenting gifts to their customers.

What’s more – several members from the audience too walked away with gift vouchers of Rs.10,000 each, as the MC, Rahul Kshirsagar interacted with them, asking them some musical questions.

It will be recalled that responding to the need of the consumer, the Goel Ganga Group had launched ‘Good Value Homes’ at rock bottom prices in good locations of the city. After the overwhelming response received to the ‘Good Value’ offer launched by Goel Ganga Group, on their projects ranging from just Rs.18 lakhs to Rs.30 lakhs, the group made an even greater offer to their customers, to express their gratitude, for the 25 years of support and faith extended to them by the people of Pune.

“This is just a small way to say a big ‘thank you’ to our customers, for all the support and trust that they have extended to us during the last 25 years”, smiles Atul Goel, MD, Goel Ganga Group.

Abbey & Santosh Shetty’s dance troupe entertained the guests as they boogied on Bollywood numbers from the latest chartbusters.

Six families went home happier & richer, and thousands of people left the venue having enjoyed the game show and the lavish spread of food laid out by the hosts. It wsa truly an unforgettable evening!
