Vashi’s Akash co­op­er­a­tive

hous­ing so­ci­ety, lo­cated in sec­tor 10, has be­come the first hous­ing so­ci­ety to get the com­mence­ment cer­tifi­cate from NMMC for re­de­vel­op­ment. The de­ci­sion paves the way for re­lief to at least 12,000 fam­i­lies liv­ing in di­lap­i­dated build­ings in the city that have been de­clared dan­ger­ous by NMMC.

The state gov­ern­ment

pol­icy de­ci­sion to grant 2.5 FSI for re­de­vel­op­ment of di­lap­i­dated Cidco-con­structed build­ings was an­nounced in Fe­bru­ary this year.

Within six months

of the de­ci­sion, Vashi’s Shrad­dha, Kailash, Ekta, Jai Ma­ha­rash­tra, Akash, F-type, Avni and Panchratna hous­ing so­ci­eties in which around 1,700 res­i­dents re­side, sub­mit­ted their ap­pli­ca­tion for re­de­vel­op­ment.

Af­ter they sub­mit­ted

all doc­u­ments re­quired for the ap­proval, NMMC gave them el­i­gi­bil­ity let­ter for re­de­vel­op­ment.

The in-prin­ci­ple ap­provals

were given by the town plan­ning depart­ment in Septem­ber.
