CBD BELAPUR: Chief min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis an­nounce­ment on Thurs­day in the assem­bly has given relief to 20,000 houses.

He said that project-af­fected peo­ple’s need-based houses built be­fore 2012 will be reg­u­larised soon through a gov­ern­ment res­o­lu­tion.

He said the 200-me­tre bound­ary limit of Navi Mum­bai vil­lages will be de­cided in con­sul­ta­tion with the vil­lagers.

Mak­ing the an­nounce­ment in the assem­bly, Fad­navis said, “Fol­low­ing reg­u­lar fol­low-ups on the is­sue, we had ear­lier de­cided to reg­u­larise the need­based houses built be­fore 2012 and in­formed the court ac­cord­ingly. The high court had taken note of it but stated that houses built af­ter 2012 should not be reg­u­larised.”

He added, “The high court told us that reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion can­not be done un­til an im­pact as­sess­ment is un­der­taken of the re­gion. Work on it has be­gun and we are ex­pect­ing the re­port in 15 days. We will then be able to is­sue a GR on the is­sue and will also in­form the high court about it.”

Fad­navis said that they would in­struct Cidco that no ac­tion should be taken against build- ings con­structed be­fore 2012.

On the con­tro­ver­sial 200- m bound­ary is­sue of vil­lages, the chief min­is­ter said, “Cidco has worked out the bound­ary lim­its, but only Cidco de­cid­ing on it won’t work. The lo­cal vil­lagers need to be taken into con­fi­dence oth­er­wise the prob­lem will not be re­solved.”

The CM said that they would be talk­ing to vil­lagers be­fore is­su­ing the GR for reg­u­lar­iza­tion and that Cidco would take their sug­ges­tions and ob­jec­tions and only then will the lim­its be fi­nal­ized.

Fad­navis said: “The sur­vey of the vil­lages is nec­es­sary but the res­i­dents did not al­low it ear­lier. They fear that their houses will be de­mol­ished if the sur­vey is done. We have asked Cidco to ap­point an agency for the pur­pose. Once the GR is is­sued and the bound­ary is­sue fi­nalised, we will start the sur­vey.”
