VASHI: State rev­enue min­is­ter Eknath Khadse has backed the builders on NAINA issue, say­ing he will take up the issue of de­lays in per­mis­sion with the chief min­is­ter.

He has also as­sured devel­op­ers that they would no longer have to run around for non-agri­cul­tural (NA) and other per­mis­sions as the gov­ern­ment is sim­pli­fy­ing the pro­ce­dures to pro­vide per­mis­sions at one point. Khadse made the an­nounce­ments at the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the four-day mega prop­erty show—CBRE PropFair at CIDCO Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre in Vashi on Fri­day.

Around 150 devel­op­ers are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the four-day expo that is offering prop­er­ties rang­ing from Rs9 lakh to Rs2.5 crore.

The expo has been or­gan­ised by CBRE In­dia, in as­so­ci­a­tion with young devel­op­ers of the city who have formed Young Op­ti­mists of Ur­ban Town­ships and Habi­tats (YOUTH).

Speak­ing to me­di­a­per­sons, Khadse said, “The young devel­op­ers of the city should be con­grat­u­lated for putting up such ex­cel­lent prop­erty expo. The new gen­er­a­tion will bring new ideas to the in­dus­try and are backed by the ex­pe­ri­ence of their se­niors.”

Back­ing devel­op­ers on the NAINA issue, he said, “They have in­formed me of the de­lay and prob­lems they are fac­ing in get­ting per­mis­sions in NAINA re­gion. It has been three years since it was an­nounced and is a ma­jor project in MMR of the ur­ban de­vel­op­ment department.”

He said, “I will take up the issue with the chief min­is­ter and ap­prise him of the dif­fi­cul­ties the devel­op­ers are fac­ing. I will also ar­range a meet­ing of the devel­op­ers and the chief min­is­ter.”

Di­nesh Doshi, pres­i­dent of YOUTH, said, “We have had a great start to the expo and the right en­cour­age­ment from the min­is­ter who has as­sured us that he will take up our is­sues with the chief min­is­ter.”
