Here its focus was mainly on the encroachments like sheds, small eateries, stalls built illegally on the road etc.
A Few of the make shift stalls and sheds put ahead of the shops were removed from the shops of SPM road and Khade Bazar. Also a few shops near the Corporation complex Basveshwar Circle were removed.
In Tilakwadi a few basements were made free for parking and the owners were asked to use it for parking only.
The eateries near Budhwar peth were totally removed and a couple of them on the Deshmukh road also were removed.
Plastic Sheds ahead of the shops were also removed.
The shop owners in Maruti galli closed their shops and went met the MLA. Maruti galli has the maximum number of Basements in the city.
