MMRDA will resettle 64 occupants of Netaji Nagar, Kurla at Bharat Nagar, BKC Permanently

Mumbai 23 June 2010: The Mumbai Metropolitan Region development Authority (MMRDA) will resettle 64 occupants of Netaji Nagar, Kurla at Bharat Nagar, BKC site of Maharashtra Housing & Area Development Authority (MHADA). Housing Development and Infrastructure Ltd (HDIL) has been developing the MHADA site at Bharat Nagar, Bandra East. The resettlement of these 64 occupants will expedite the ongoing remaining work of Santracruz Chembur Link road (SCLR) project.
Earlier Before finalizing the Bharat Nagar site, Mr. Ratnakar Gaikwad, Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA offered to resolve the issue of relocation by offering six options to these 64 occupants but due to certain reasons they were not being accepted due to which the construction at the SCLR was delayed.
The MMRDA will offer these 64 tenants each one flat of 450 sq. feet carpet area. Currently these 64 occupants are residing in 217 sq. feet carpet area flat.
“The prestigious 6.45 km long SCLR is a very crucial development and the MMRDA has convinced the 64 occupants of Netaji Nagar that they will be resettled at Bharat Nagar. The work of SCLR project can speed up to ultimately answer few of the city’s traffic woes”, said Mr.SVR Srinivas, Additional Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA.

If Netaji Nagar occupants are not in mood of acceptance of this proposal, their buildings along with land will be acquired under section 32(1) of the MMRDA Act. On this background on 7th of April, 2010 a draft notification was issued to all the occupants and in due course a final notification will be served by the Urban Development Department, Govt of Maharashtra.
“The proposed integrated S.R Scheme on MHADA site at Bharat Nagar is in an advance planning stage, after acceptance from Netaji Nagar Society the construction activity will begin and will be completed within the period of two years. Until then these occupants will be shifted to alternate accommodations on the leave and license basis for 24 months and accordingly the prevailing rent of the area will be given to the occupants to resettle in the nearby area of Kurla vicinity” said Mr. P H Warwadekar, Planner, MMRDA. He further added, “SCLR affected 13 MHADA buildings of New Tilak Nagar, three buildings of Old Tilak Nagar, Chembur, two row houses of Chembur and two MHADA buildings of Netaji Nagar, Kurla occupants are main hurdles of this SCLR project but finally with the negotiations, coordination and personal dialogues with the representatives of their concern society’s their R&R issues were resolved.
Once the 6.4 km first ever double decor flyover under SCLR project is complete, it will reduce the traveling time drastically and motorists will enjoy hassle free ride to their destination.

    We are PAP’s under SCLR Project & we are not against the SCLR Project. Nobody has opposed the development . MMRDA had never given clear picture to Netaji Nagar PAP’s since SCLR project begun in 2004 these are buildings which were built by MHADA (erstwhile Mumbai Housing Board) and all the legal outgoings are being paid timely to respective authorities more than 40Years .Also conveyance from MHADA after paying Lacks of rupees to MHADA & paying all government taxes regularly to govt. MMRDA offering tenement to Netaji Nagar where a slum Rehabilitation Authority ( SRA) project was being constructed . MMRDA officers interested to complete Project but they are not Interested to solve the problem of Netaji Nagar PAP’s. We never hold SCLR to ransom. We always requested MMRDA to rehabilitate to us in same manner as SCLR PAP’s Tilak Nagar MHADA colony offered.

    Initially MMRDA offered us 360 sq feet tenement at Sahkar nagar chembur but this site has been already occupied by some other tenants of Mhada. The MMRDA has also offered us locations like Motilal Nagar in Bandra Kurla Complex, Bhakti Park, Nahur, Mulund and Goregaon . Some locations are near slums, or some are too far away from the railway station & all where a slum Rehabilitation Authority ( SRA) project was being constructed. On July 14, the Bombay High Court ordered the MMRA to give in writing the exact details of the R & R plan that was being offered to Netai Nagar Paps, because the Netaji Nagar residents had filed a petition in HC against MMRDA for failing to furnish detail about the plan. On basis of the HC ordered they offered tenement in the Bharat Nagar which also not ready position where a slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) project was being constructed by HDIL .We initially refused to accept the same but we will ready to move if MMRDA will agree to caved out separate plot from SRA project to us duly approved by UDD/Housing Department /SRA & gave us separate slot which was called as private property of our society & also gave us guarantee because proposed Bharat Nagar plot still occupied by slum dwellers since 1985. . Now MMRDA had sent us legal notice under section 32 of MMRDA act to acquire our tenements It seems MMRDA officials are putting the facts partially in front of media and painting the image of Netaji Nagar as `villains’ in the way of development. Nobody can oppose to the development but it should not cost the shelter of the residents who are staying in Netaji Nagar for as long as 45 years.

    MMRDA has denied Netaji Nagar residents ‘right of allotting ownership houses. Can You shift your own houses in similar circumstances ?
