Said mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Di­nesh Wagh­mare, “We have re­ceived just 15 ap­pli­ca­tions fol­low­ing the no­ti­fi­ca­tion. They in­volve re­de­vel­op­ment of 96 build­ings.”

Ex­plain­ing the de­lay in per­mis­sion, he said, “The high level com­mit­tee that is over­see­ing the process feels that the old IIT re­ports which de­clared the build­ings as di­lap­i­dated will not be right. That re­port was based on a sam­ple of 4-5% build­ings.”

He added, “It has now de­cided that it will in­spect ev­ery build­ing that seeks re­de­vel­op­ment. Fol­low­ing the struc­tural au­dit, only those that are truly in a poor con­di­tion will be cer­ti­fied as di­lap­i­dated and will be given re­de­vel­op­ment per­mis­sion.”

He said, “The per­mis­sions are ex­pected soon.”
