Hinjawadi is located in the South Western part of the city of Pune, India.


Previously Hinjawadi was a village until the construction of the Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park. Now it is one of the epicenters of IT industry in Pune. To improve the overall planning and development of Hinjewadi area, it was brought under the jurisdiction of PMRDA. The state government in the past rejected the demands to bring the area under the jurisdiction of either PMC or PCMC as the area needed special attention park comprises three phases with further phases planned. Hinjawadi Industries Association (HIA) was laid out to provide a joint forum to all stakeholders based out of Hinjawadi and nearby places.

Hinjawadi is a proposed hub for integrated townships in Pimpri-Chinchwad.[1] The new Special Township Policy Act of the Maharashtra government has laid down an integrated approach to the development of townships to de-congest Pune Municipal Corporation areas and encourage new settlements in its periphery though higher FSI (floor space index) than what is normally allowed in the municipal limits.


Road transport[edit]

Due to rapid development, Hinjawadi is facing serious traffic problems during peak hours. From 8.00 AM to 12:00 PM and 5.30 PM to 8.00 PM, HMVs (Heavy Motor Vehicles) are not allowed to enter the area due to high congestion on the roads and the number of vehicles are increasing due to a lot of career opportunities. Above 2.5 Lacs employees travel daily to and from the IT park.[2]

In Rainy seasons people starting from Phase 3 or Phase 2 used to spend minimum 1 hour in just crossing Hinjawadi and to reach till Wakad bridge which is merely 3 Kilometer distance.[citation needed]

The roads are potholes laden and full of encroachments. The Hinjawadi Industries Association (HIA) had logged numerous complaints to the local and state government,[citation needed] but nothing has moved. The employees of IT companies also protested by forming a human chain,[citation needed] but it has made no impact on the authorities. As this was not enough, the small lanes within the IT park were dug up for pipeline work[citation needed] and then never reconstructed. Because of the worst road conditions, minor accidents involving IT employees is a regular picture.[citation needed] Back, Neck and Shoulder injuries are common among the engineers.[citation needed]

There are two more approach roads proposed to reduce the traffic congestion, but almost after 15 years of establishment of the IT park, these roads still remain proposed. The Wakad bridge is a planning marvel in itself. When the authorities were planning for Phase 1 till Phase 4 of the IT park, this bridge was constructed with only 2 lanes. So from both sides, 3 lanes merge into single lane, creating traffic mess day and night.
