In Nirmal Katraj Dekhan Katraj project of decentralised waste management, Janwani has taken up an electoral ward as a model.
Being a small area of 9kms of range awareness creation could not be done by using mass media. So the thrust was more on banners and house to house campaign. For house to house training use of visuals would have been beneficial, as it creates an emotional appeal.This reading material was used by our volunteers to impress upon the citizens the need for segragation and explaing them the system of collection through SWCH ragpickers

PMC Budget Booklet English edition
Do we as tax payers have any idea how our money is being utilized? Are we not interested to know about it? Are we getting the value for our money from the quality of services and the investments made by our municipal corporation? To answer these and such similar questions the first and foremost need is to understand the way our budget is presented.
The format in which the Pune Municipal Corporation presents its budget is cumbersome and difficult to comprehend. If one were to try and find out the financial health of a particular department at a glance, it is very difficult. Hence Janwani, has come up with a budget booklet which is simplified and easily readable. The data is presented in such a form that one can just look at the figures and can draw his/her own inferences. The booklet is bereft of any opinions or interpretations. Just the data for 4 departments viz Water supply, Sewerage, Sanitation and Road Improvement is presented along with the ward wise expenditure on capital works, list of major development projects in the city and JnNURM projects in the PMC.

Jan Je Vanchiil Second Edition
Participation of the common man in governance is our dream. It takes decades to build the vision and it needs right time and right people to make the dream come true. The forthcoming Act on Area Sabhas can be the way towards that dream. This book contributes towards Pune’s tradition of introducing new norms. It shows the possibility and suggests the methodology for citizens to be engaged in Participative Governance.
This survey was commissioned by Janwani with the help of Metric Consultants for understanding citizens opinion of the Vanaz-Ramwadi Corridor for Metro which PMC is planning to roll out the first phase of the proposed Metro. Metric conducted the survey during June 14 to June 16 along the proposed Vanaz – Ramwadi corridor of the Metro. It interviewed 400 Puneites at Vanaz, Nal Stop, Deccan Gymkhana, Shivajinagar, Mangalwar Peth, Bund Garden, Kalyaninagar and Ramwadi. A structured questionnaire was administered to only those persons who normally travel on the proposed route.
While 75% of the respondents were aware of the plan to build the metro, only 41% knew the proposed route. While 75% of the respondents were aware of the plan to build the metro, only 41% knew the proposed route. It may be noted that very few respondents in Mangalwar Peth and Shivajinagar think that the route is appropriate while large number of respondents in Kalyaninagar and Ramwadi think that the route is appropriate. When they were informed about the proposed route only 48% felt that the route was appropriate. This clearly indicates a need to give more information about the project to the citizens of Pune and consider their opinions about the most appropriate route. It can be seen that amongst the respondents, more Males intend to use the Metro for going to work while more Females would use the Metro for shopping and other reasons.On an average, respondents are willing to pay Rs. 5 per Km for the Metro.
24% of the respondents felt that the vehicle traffic would substantially reduce after the Metro starts while 27% felt that there would be no reduction after the Metro starts. 49% felt that there would be some reduction in the traffic after the Metro starts. These figures are closely matching with the expected reduction in use of own vehicle after the Metro starts. 89% people feel that their opinion should be taken into consideration by PMC before taking the final decision and 59% think that citizens of Pune will benefit from the 1st phase of Metro
