De­vel­op­ers will not find it easy any­more to rush to the court for a stay over City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion’s (Cidco) ac­tion against il­le­gal struc­tures.

Cidco has filed caveats in 1,024 cases in the court ask­ing the court to hear the plan­ning agency’s plea be­fore tak­ing a de­ci­sion on the stay ap­pli­ca­tion.

Yo­gesh Mhase, chief of con­troller of unau­tho­rised con­struc­tions, Cidco, said, “There have been in­stances where de­vel­op­ers get a stay or­der on the de­mo­li­tion and Cidco has to with­draw at the last mo­ment.”

“We have filed caveats in the court on cases of 1,024 il­le­gal con­struc­tions. This will en­sure that the court hears our plea be­fore giv­ing its de­ci­sion on a stay ap­pli­ca­tion by the de­vel­oper.”

The Cidco has also de­cided to file cases un­der Mum­bai Re­gional Town Plan­ning Act against those en­croach­ing on its land. At least five cases have been filed un­der the Act this week. No­tices un­der MRTP Act have been sent to 578 il­le­gal con­struc­tions in the last six months.
