Be­la­pur MLA Manda Mha­tre has stated that chief min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis an­nounced in the assem­bly on Fri­day that both Digha build­ings and pro­jectaf­fected peo­ple’s struc­tures built up to 2015 will be reg­u­larised.

She said the gov­ern­ment’s pro­posal will be sub­mit­ted to the court on Mon­day. It will later be pre­sented to the public for ob­jec­tions and sug­ges­tions.

Mha­tre held a press con­fer­ence in CBD Be­la­pur on Satur­day to give details of the pro­posal. She bat­ted for the rede­vel­op­ment of CIDCO di­lap­i­dated build­ings, al­leged cor­rup­tion by some NMMC of­fi­cials in the ac­tions be­ing taken in the city and op­posed con­struc­tion of new schools for the phys­i­cally chal­lenged, by the civic body.

Mha­tre said, “I had been fol­low­ing up on the il­le­gal Digha build­ings is­sue for the past two years. I had asked for the build­ings to be reg­u­larised af­ter the res­i­dents be­ing charged a penalty or that they be re­ha­bil­i­tated.”

She added, “I had also de­manded that the land mafia that cheated them be brought to book. Ac­tion should also be taken against the of­fi­cials who pro­vided them with elec­tric­ity and wa­ter all these years giv­ing le­gal­ity to the build­ings.”

Mha­tre said, “The chief min­is­ter had then said that the Digha houses will be reg­u­larised. I, how­ever, in­formed him that there are sim­i­lar such in­stances in other cities too. There is the is­sue of Digha build­ings as well as the PAP struc­tures in the gaothans. I asked for them all to be reg­u­larised.”

Mha­tre said, “I am very glad that the chief min­is­ter has stated that both the Digha and the PAP struc­tures con­structed up Mem­bers of Nav­jee­van Cen­tre, an NGO run by Mar Thoma Church, took out a bike rally on Satur­day to spread aware­ness on sav­ing the girl child and stop hu­man traf­fick­ing. The rally started from Sec­tor 17 at Vashi to NMMC head­quar­ters. “Pro­tec­tion of God’s cre­ation is the pri­mary duty of every per­son,” said bishop Rt Rev Dr Gee­vargh­ese Mar Theo­dosious Epis­copa. to 2015 will be le­gal­izsd as per the spec­i­fied norms that have been stip­u­lated in the pro­posal.”

She said, “The Digha struc­tures have come up on CIDCO and MIDC land. As per the pro­posal, in case of open and free land, the struc­tures will be reg­u­larised. How­ever, if they are on reserved land or land that is un­der CRZ and so on, they will not be reg­u­larised.”

Mha­tre said the pro­posal will be sub­mit­ted the high court on Mon­day. The GR will be put in public do­main for ob­jec­tions and sug­ges­tions. ”
