Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - HT NAVI MUMBAI -

Cidco vice-chair­man and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor San­jay Bha­tia has said Cidco will con­tinue with its drive against il­le­gal struc­tures built by project af­fected peo­ple (PAP) in the city. Bha­tia has said that no il­le­gal struc­tures will be tol­er­ated.

While fresh no­tices have been is­sued to 219 struc­tures, Cidco has iden­ti­fied a to­tal of 1,657 il­le­gal struc­tures. Th­ese in­clude 1,021 struc­tures in NMMC area and 636 struc­tures in Cidco area.

The state gov­ern­ment has said it plans to reg­u­larise houses built till De­cem­ber 2012. The high court had or­dered all il­le­gal con­struc­tions built since Jan­uary 2013 be de­mol­ished. Cidco had ac­cord­ingly ini­ti­ated its de­mo­li­tion drive in Navi Mum­bai, Pan­vel and Uran ar­eas.

The drive was halted in mid-June fol­low­ing protests by PAP. A meet­ing was held be­tween the PAP lead­ers and Cidco. They de­manded a re­view of all the struc­tures and listing of the il­le­gal struc­tures based on the norms set.

Cidco con­ducted a re­view and based on the norms sent no­tices to 219 con­struc­tions in Au­gust.
