While the actor Anil Kapoor is enjoying his vacation in Germany, the BMC razed his illegal and unauthorized construction. The actor hasn’t spoken about it, but here’s what his officer, and the BMC has to say about the whole situation!
”We issued an MRTP notice under section 53(1). One needs permission to even construct partitions and full height cabins. We had given a prior intimation to Anil Kapoor’s office to apply for permission but it was ignored. The MRTP notice has a 30 day period and the final order period is for seven days. They could have easily paid a penalty and regularised it. But since they didn’t, we were forced to demolish it.”
“We cooperated with the officials to the best of our ability. It was obviously a loss for us, but rules are rules. We evacuated the office when they arrived. The repair work post demolition will be taken care of, over the next few days.” told a source working at Anil Kapoor’s office.
The Lakhan was silent about the whole scenario.
“On November 24, we carried out demolition work of cabin and partition inside the office of the structure. In September, we had sent a notice under MRTP (Maharashtra Regional Town Planning) Act to the owner of the structure asking him to either regularise the part from Building Proposal department or remove the illegal construction. However, they did not take any action, so we removed the part altogether.” says one of the senior civic officer involved in the process.
