Ap­proval for nine build­ings: In 1981, the plan­ning au­thor­ity granted ap­provals for con­struc­tion of six build­ings com­pris­ing base­ment, ground and five up­per floors. The au­thor­ity later per­mit­ted an amended plan for nine build­ings

Cor­po­ra­tion con­nived with de­vel­oper: In 1983, the plan­ning au­thor­ity re­fused to al­low the de­vel­oper to con­struct ad­di­tional floors but it con­tin­ued. The Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion of Mum­bai (BMC) is­sued a ‘stop work no­tice’ but of­fi­cials turned a blind eye to the ‘il­le­gal’ work

Home­buy­ers un­aware of facts: Flat buy­ers plead that all through - from sign­ing a builder-buyer agree­ment till pos­ses­sion, they were un­aware that the con­struc­tion was il­le­gal and even got their flats reg­is­tered

Vi­o­la­tion in the seven tow­ers: Seven co­op­er­a­tive so­ci­eties, Esha Ekta, Pa­tel A, Pa­tel B, Or­chid, BY, Mid­town and Shubh, known as Campa Cola so­ci­eties, com­prise 106 ‘il­le­gal’ flats, which were sold in the late ‘80s
