To discourage the staff of information technology (IT) companies from using cars, he has also declared to provide a luxury bus service to the staff through the Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML). He made this announcement while presenting the civic body's budget for 2011-12 during the general body (GB) meeting.

Mr. Shinde proposed a 9crore budget to develop the medical college at the Naidu Hospital. He hopes that the college would get recognition by December and admissions would start from March next year. The proposed college would be known as Priyadarshini Indira Gandhi Medical College. 200 doctors will pass out of this college every year. These doctors will be absorbed in PMC-run hospitals.
