WHAT THE COMMITTEE SUGGESTED
A committee was appointed by state earlier this year to study where the memorial for Bal Thackeray can be built. Its recommendations:
Mayor’s Bungalow not feasible
In its report, the committee said the Mayor’s Bungalow plot cannot be allotted because of CRZ rules and heritage structure regulations
It also pointed to a 2014 SC ruling that prohibits governments from allotting govt plots for memorials
Allot plot to a public trust
A sub-committee report said the plot should be given to a public trust, under the Maharashtra Public Trust Act 1950, and not a family trust, as demanded by the Sena.
