Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - HT NAVI MUMBAI - G Mo­hi­ud­din Jeddy ht­for­nav­i­mum­bai@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Fol­low­ing the move by City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (Cidco) and Ma­ha­rash­tra In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (MIDC), the civic body has started crack­ing down on il­le­gal con­struc­tions in the city.

The Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion’s (NMMC) antien­croach­ment depart­ment has is­sued no­tices to the de­vel­op­ers of newly-con­structed il­le­gal build­ings in Ghan­soli node un­der sec­tion 54 of Mum­bai Re­gional Town Plan­ning Act 1966. It has also filed po­lice cases against some de­vel­op­ers.

The crack­down was un­der the guidance of ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner (city) Ankush Cha­van, deputy mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner (en­croach­ment) Subhash In­gle and as­sis­tant mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Kailash Gaik­wad.

“Three po­lice cases have been reg­is­tered at Ra­bale po­lice sta­tion. Two are against Kr­ishna Patil and the de­vel­op­ers of two struc­tures op­po­site Chinch Aali in Ghan­soli,” said Cha­van.

“An­other case is against Chau­thubai Bhoir, de­vel­op­ers Vikas More and Sukhdev Cha­van and their as­so­ciates. They have been charged for il­le­gal con­struc­tion next to an NMMC pub­lic toi­let in Sa­marth Na­gar,” said Cha­van.

“No­tices have been is­sued to He­mant Patil and his as­so­ciates and de­vel­oper Dhanaji Pa­tel and his as­so­ciates for the con­struc­tion of Balaji Park, in Goth­ivli,” said Cha­van.

“Ac­cord­ing to high court or­ders, all the eight ward of­fices of NMMC now have com­plaint re­dres­sal cells for im­me­di­ate mea­sures against il­le­gal struc­tures,” said mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Di­nesh Wagh­mare.

“We have pro­vided toll-free num­bers at each ward of­fice,” said Wagh­mare. “Once a com­plaint is re­ceived, ac­tion will be taken against such struc­tures and the com­plainant will be kept in the loop.”

The civic com­mis­sioner has asked res­i­dents to be alert.

“Home­buy­ers should not pur­chase shops or flats in build­ings that do not have com­mence­ment cer­tifi­cate or oc­cu­pancy cer­tifi­cate from the NMMC,” said Wagh­mare.

“Il­le­gal build­ings will not only face de­mo­li­tion, but they would not get wa­ter and sewage fa­cil­i­ties,” said Wagh­mare.
