Supreme Court ordered Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to find out possible ways to regularising the illegally constructed flats in South Mumbai’s Campa Cola Society, after hearing their petition filed before the court in hope of relief. The court’s order has brought a sigh of relief among the owners.
The apex court bench headed by Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya said that there is a provision by which even the unauthorized constructions are regularized after paying penalties and other charges.
The court has issued a notice regarding this and has granted three weeks time to the BMC and the Maharashtra government, to file response. The court also directed the BMC to see if the matter can be settled out of court.
The court has asked the BMC and the Maharashtra government that what is preventing them from regularising 100 flats in Mumbai’s Campa Cola compound that the civic body seeks to demolish for violations of norms, the apex court reportedly asked.
