Mumbai: In the last week the Indian Navy has informed to Bombay High court that permission to building construction on Mukesh Mills, it will provide easy access for possible attacks on its base INS Shikara. A division bench of Justice comprising of Justice P B Majmudar and Justice Mridula Bhatkar were hearing the petition filed by the TCI Industries Ltd has challenged the refusal order by Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to construct building on mill land without seeking No Objection Certificate (NOC) from defence ministry.
Advocate Rui Rodrigues and Additional solicitor general Darius Khambata has refused all the accusations that the Navy has raised a security bogey. Khambata argued that security is a factor contained in the development plan (DP), and that development control regulations (DCR) always consider it. “DCR require that unsafe structures be demolished. Why then give permission to build if the building has to be demolished?” he asked.
