Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVIMUMBAI -

Last week, Cidco had is­sued no­tices against 27 il­le­gal con­struc­tions and de­mol­ished 17 of them. There was op­po­si­tion against the drive, but they man­aged it with help of po­lice. Mean­while, both Cidco and MIDC have been car­ry­ing out de­mo­li­tion drive fol­low­ing the di­rec­tions of the high court. MIDC and Cidco had be­gun a crack­down on 99 unau­tho­rised build­ings in Digha af­ter the Bom­bay high court di­rected the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion to re­move all such struc­tures.

The Bom­bay high court had asked the Navi Mum­bai po­lice to in­ves­ti­gate the role of of­fi­cials from dif­fer­ent agen­cies in the il­le­gal struc­tures case. In most cases, the Ra­bale po­lice reg­is­tered cheat­ing and forgery cases un­der sec­tions 420, 120 (B) and 406, along with, other rel­e­vant sec­tions of the IPC. “In the new list,

we have men­tioned the names of the peo­ple who con­structed the il­le­gal build­ings and the area. This way, peo­ple get to know the re­al­ity be­fore buy­ing a house or shop in those build­ings,”


Cidco work­ers de­mol­ish il­le­gal struc­tures at Sec­tor 20 in Belapur on Thurs­day. All de­mo­li­tion drives are be­ing done with po­lice pro­tec­tion be­cause of op­po­si­tion.
