In a move to speed up or boost redevelopment process, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has set up a new policy on dilapidated buildings and uploaded on its official website.
In new policy under the C-1 category (dangerous), it doesn’t protect Cess properties, MHADA buildings, defence properties and port trust. The officials said, due to the argument between tenants and owners the process of redevelopment and vacating the flats gets setback.
The BMC will only sanction redevelopment under the new policy if there is a permanent agreement between landlord and tenants on other accommodation in new building or settlement. Till that time no Commencement certificate (CC) will be issued. The new policy says that inquiry will be set up and the civic body servant will be suspended from service if the BMC person declines to evacuate a C-1 category building, even after the other accommodation is given.
Recently the BMC commissioner, in a seminar said the government and BMC are committed to push the housing industry and we want Mumbai to be commercial capital.
