PUNE: Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) will procure 50,000 new LED street lights, as the earlier purchases failed to match the expected standards.

Shrinivas Kandul, PMC head of the electrical department said that regional ward offices had installed almost 65,000 LEDs earlier but most of them were sourced from local manufacturers and were of poor quality, so this year PMC will install 50,000 new LEDs of better quality.

The estimated cost of procurement will be approximately ₹ 24.55 crores. 50,000 LEDs are required to replace 32,860 poor quality LEDs and 8,324 LEDs for conventional fitting replacements.
