The Pimpri-Chinchwad city with 206 Sq. Km. base is situated towards northeast and 160 k.m. from Mumbai.

The city Pimpri-Chinchwad is predominantly an industrial area, developed during last 4 decades. The process of urbanization of this area began in 1954 with the establishment of "Hindustan Antibiotics" a public sector pharmaceutical undertaking. With each coming year the landscape began to change from long stretches of farm land to clusters of enclosed factory campuses. The first response came in 1970, in form of creation of Municipal Council incorporating four villages-panchayat in the area. In 1982 the civic body was upgraded to its present status namely "MUNICIPAL CORPORATION". During proceeding decades the population of this town has increased from 85,000 to 10,00,000.

Though it is an industrial area, the atmosphere is quite pleasant and fresh. Efficient planning and concern for the environment has led to plantation on a large scale, which keeps the pollution level to minimal.

The PCMC has been on forefront of greeting urban environment since its inception and has undertaken various projects like Durgadevi Hill Park, Environmental Park, Ayurvedic Medicine plantation garden, Bhosari Picnic Center, Indira Gandhi Udyan (Appu Ghar).

PCMC has received first prize in the state for "Excellence in Energy conservation Award" from MEDA, Government of Maharashtra and also received second Prize from Government of Maharashtra for exceptional "Increase in Octroi collection". Recently citizen-centric project of PCMC "Citizen Facilitation Center" has received Bronze Icon at the 8th National Conference for e-Governance initiatives.
