Pune is a historic city and Pimpri Chinchwad Township, which was initially considered a satellite town, has gained importance as a twin city owing to rapid industrial growth and IT hubs. The population of Pune Metropolitan Region is ~73 lakhs as per the 2011 Census of India. The proposed Pune Ring Road, as notified in the year 1997, passes through the Pune Metropolitan Region connecting the above mentioned automobile, IT and educational hubs.

The total length of the proposed Ring Road is 128.66 km with width of 110 metres. It will have 3 lanes as service roads on both sides for local traffic needs, 4 lanes of access control intercity road for through traffic on both sides and a 33.5 metre-wide Metro corridor for mass transit. Suitable space is kept for beautification and landscaping so that this Ring Road becomes a tourist destination by itself.

It is proposed to execute 46 Town Planning Schemes along the Ring Road to ensure planned development of the areas adjoining the road. Truck terminus, developed marketplaces for agricultural products such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish and meat, multi-level car parking at all major highway junctions are also proposed.

In short, the proposed Ring Road will not merely remain a transport project, but will be a infrastructure-driven development project for Pune Metropolitan Region.

To ensure that this infrastructural landmark of Pune city gets an iconic name, a naming competition is proposed for the PMRDA Pune Ring Road. This name could be an acronym or a word which signifies the cultural heritage of Pune and its modern outlook as well.

Duration of Competition: 18th January, (11 AM) to 7th February (5 PM), 2018.

The winning name will be awarded a cash prize of INR 10,000/- along with a certificate at the hands of dignitaries and will become the official name of the PMRDA Pune Ring Road.
