Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) is a Municipal Corporation of Pimpri Chinchwad City, an urban agglomeration of Pune and a part of the Pune Metropolitan Region. The headquarters of PCMC are situated on the Old Pune Mumbai Highway in the heart of the city. PCMC was established in 11 October 1982 to govern an area of 87 sq. km. of the newly industrialized towns of Pimpri, Chinchwad, Akurdi and Bhosari.[3] PCMC now covers an area of about 181 sq. km.[4] and has a population 17,29,000 growing at an annual rate of 6%, higher than the national average of 2.1%, according to the 2011 Census of India.[4] PCMC is one of the fastest growing municipal corporations in Asia.[5]


The industrialization in PCMC began in 1954 with the establishment of Hindustan Antibiotics, the first pharmaceutical company. On 4 March 1970 by late Annasaheb Magar put the founding stone of Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Council, which brought the industrial and residential areas of Pimpri, Chinchwad, Akurdi and Bhosari under a unified civic body. In 1975 the status of this corporation was changed from C to A class. On 11 October 1982, the civic body was reorganized to form the modern municipal corporation.[3]

Public transport buses under the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Transport (PCMT) began operation in 1974. In 2007, PCMT was merged with Pune Municipal Transport (PMT), the public transport provider of the neighboring Pune city to form the Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML; literally, Pune Metropolitan Transport Corporation Limited).
