In an ad interim order, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has restrained the civic authorities from granting building permission for new projects up to 10 km from the boundary of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai's Borivali suburb.

The order is expected to affect most part of northern suburbs, including Malad(E), Goregaon(E), Kandivali(E), Borivali(E), Dahisar(E), Powai, Mulund, Bhandup and even areas of Thane district.

It would not apply to ongoing projects.

The NGT order will affect proposed constructions and pending proposals, including those of slum rehabilitation schemes falling within 10km.Developers who have done the ground work of getting 70% consent from eligible slumdwellers but have to get their proposals processed will be hit hardest, as will slum-dwellers.

    In projects which have started but not got full CC as yet, will the further CC be stopped given the order of NGT ?
    If you read the order it says no further permissions...

  • If I get it right, this is applicable for any new project being executed? It does not apply to any under-construction projects that are in progress?

  • Finally a thread I was searching for. I have invested in Alta Monte and this NBWL news scared me. Although I read that it should not affect the already launched projects this means it should not affect even Alta Monte and other such under construction projects. But any new projects from here on in 10kms radius of National Park may be affected.
    But can someone find the truth? What is to happen of Alta Monte?

      WITHIN 1 KM
      Draft notification allows completion of under-construction buildings close to protected area


      MUMBAI: In what comes as a relief to property buyers and real estate developers, the draft notification on the buffer zone around the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) will permit under construction projects within 1km of the demarcated eco-sensitive zone (ESZ).

      The notification issued by the environment ministry on Saturday has earmarked 4km of the national park located in Mumbai and Thane as ESZ. The ESZ comprises 41 villages and townships.

      “Under construction commercial buildings — including housing societies, offices, information technology /information technology enabled services parks, hotels and resorts, roads, transmission lines, sewage lines and civic amenities, among others — sanctioned by the local selfgovernment under the approved development plan as per the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning Act, may be allowed to be completed within one kilometre from the boundary of the protected area. This is subject to the applicable rules and regulations inter alia including environment and wildlife clearance,” read the draft notification.

      The notification is open for suggestions before the ministry gives the final nod. All new tourism activities or expansion of existing tourism activities within the ESZ will be allowed as per the rules.

      While no new constructions, hotels or resorts will allowed within the 1km from the boundary of the national park, projects between 1km and 4kms of the buffer zone will be regulated in accordance with the zonal master plan. Environmentalists, however, said that regulating construction activities beyond 1km and within 4kms defeats the purpose of nature conservation.

      “The draft notification is bizarre and an oxymoron. Many more projects will go through by the time the zonal master plan is prepared, and finally will be allowed to get completed. This draft notification defeats the purpose of biodiversity conversation,” said Stalin D of NGO Vanashakti.

      Along with the draft notification for SGNP, the environment ministry has also issued the final notification for the 12.10 sqkm Karnala Bird Sanctuary with the ESZ spread across 18 villages in Uran and Panvel talukas of Raigad district.

      According to the notification, the ESZ is spread over an area of 31.7 sqkm, which varies from zero to 8kms from the boundary of sanctuary. “The smaller the sanctuary, the larger should be the buffer zone. This will ensure it offers more protection. If the buffer zone was to be enhanced, it would encompass MIDC properties and halt industrialisation. Commercial interests have won,” said Godfrey Pimenta of the Watchdog Foundation.
