                Razed and raised: A lesson from Dongri on mocking the law

                The building had permission for only four floors, but has become an 11- storey structure. The smug owner has now allowed tenants to move into it

                BUILDING no. 11 on Keshavji Naik Road in Dongri is a mockery of the law. The 11- storey building has been the B- ward’s sore point since last year. Originally a g 4 structure, it has been demolished twice. But that hasn’t stopped the owner from raising it again; now, even tenants have moved inside.

                Ward officials are in the process of initiating the demolition proceedings again. They have appointed a demolition contractor, who will undertake the job soon.

                Dongri, notorious for being the cradle of the D- Company, has always been a hotbed of illegal activities. Nefarious businesses, banned substances and everything that is a reminder of Mumbai’s gang war era exists here. There is also rampant illegal construction.

                Builder pays no heed According to data from the ward office, the BMC detected illegal construction on building no. 11, owned by one Ibrahim Motiwala, in September 2015 after demolishing it earlier. It found that the ground floor of the building was being constructed again. The civic body issued a notice to them under Section 354 of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act the same day.

                It then sent letters to the local police station, asking for protection during demolition proceedings, but since it was the festive season, police personnel were diverted elsewhere. Taking advantage of this, the owner continued with the construction.

                On October 3, the owner submitted some documents before the ward office, which only went on to prove that the original structure had permission for just four floors. A notice under Section 52 of the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning ( MRTP) Act was issued on October 9. That same day, under police protection,
                protection, the ward staff demolished the first five floors. The sixth and seventh floors, and the slab of the eighth were demolished on October 26.

                Bid to get a free pass Despite this, the construction resumed. Another stop work notice was issued on October 28. Prior to this, the owner moved court, demanding a stay on the demolition proceedings, saying he had only undertaken tenantable repairs. On October 7, the court refused to pass a stay order, saying, “…[ where] this structure is concerned, plaintiff ( Motiwala) has not sought permission from any competent authority.

                Therefore, such construction cannot be protected in the court of law… Plaintiff has not made out any case and, therefore, not entitled for the relief of ad interim injunction.” Contempt of court The BMC claims that despite the court order, eight floors were constructed illegally again. Alleging contempt of court, it filed an FIR under the MRTP Act this January.

                “ The building is completely illegal. They do not have the necessary permission from the ward or the building proposal department. Our legal department has scrutinised their documents and has given us the go- ahead [ for demolition]. There is no stay from the court.

                Even the commissioner has asked us to demolish it. If the building collapses in the monsoon, who will be responsible? The building abuts railway tracks. What if it falls on a train?” asked Assistant Municipal Commissioner UM Shiroorkar of B- ward.

                Asked how the building was allowed to be constructed in the first place, he said he had taken charge just a few weeks ago and that he would not be able to comment on his predecessor’s tenure.

                  3 charged with duping VP of realty firm

                  Complainant alleges that trio defaulted on the payment of a Pali Hill

                  THE Khar police has charged three persons, including two Mumbaibased real estate agents, with cheating a realtor in a multi- crore financial deal involving a 3BHK flat in Nav Palmyra CHS in Pali Hill, Bandra.

                  Suraj Samant, vice- president of Patel Realty, which undertakes construction and redevelopment projects, has filed a complaint against Dubaibased Manohar Sawlani, and two brokers — Chandra and Gautam Kamra. In his complaint, Samant alleged that in 2014, Sawlani — through the Kamras, who run a company called The Crew — had expressed interest in buying an 890- sqft flat on the fourth floor of the under- construction building from Patel Realty. The flat was then valued at R 2.65 crore.

                  “ Once the deal was finalised, Sawlani paid us R 44 lakh and was issued an allotment letter. Sawlani didn’t pay the next installment of R 40 lakh, due in July 2015. He also did not pay the service tax of R 2.24 lakh,” Samant alleged.

                  However, the Kamra brothers claimed they had already handed over R 45 lakh to Samant towards payment of the said flat and filed an affidavit in court. This money, alleged Samant, was a separate transaction and a non- refundable token amount for the purchase of his Santa Cruz office valued at R 4.5 crore.

                  Sawlani told mid- day that his lawyers would deal with the case.

                  Ramchandra Jadhav, senior inspector of Khar police station, said the investigation is under process.

                    Society members hit the roof, allege illegalities by builder

                    They have written to civic body claiming that the developer has enclosed the terrace on the 11th floor that was supposed to be open to them; BMC is yet to respond to the complaint

                    MEMBERS of a housing society from Juhu, backed by filmmaker Ashoke Pandit, have written to the BMC alleging illegal construction by its builder. The society has alleged that the builder has enclosed the terrace on the 11th floor that was supposed to be open to residents. They have alleged this on the basis of building plans, but when mid- day contacted the builder, he denied any illegalities.

                    The BMC has not taken cognizance of the complaint.The real estate industry of Mumbai is prone to complaints of illegalities, as developers as well as occupants try to get that extra space in their properties. While sometimes the violations may be as small as enclosing a balcony, there have been incidents where several floors have been constructed illegally.

                    Society members say The Devpur Niketan CHS’ Leena Residency is a ground- plus- 11- floor society on Gulmohur Road, JVPD. Originally more than 30 years old, the society was redeveloped by M/ s Dev Land and Housing Pvt Ltd in 2015.

                    The proposal for giving the project to the said developer was accepted by the society in 2005. When the construction was completed in 2015, the original occupants started living on the first seven floors while the flats on the 8th, 9th and 10th floors were sold.

                    According to the occupation certificate issued by the BMC in September 2015, the building comprises
                    comprises a basement plus stilts, plus 1st floor to 10th floor, plus 11th ( part) duplex upper floors for residential use. The building plans show that the 11th floor is only supposed to have a bedroom with an attached toilet for the duplex on the 10th floor. The remaining portion is supposed to be a ‘ part terrace above 10th floor.’ The housing society has alleged that the developer has enclosed this terrace and constructed on the entire space, which was actually supposed to stay with the society.

                    The society wrote to the ward office on March 9, 19, 29 and April 4 in the matter. The society secretary has attached a set of photographs and threatened legal action against the BMC for dereliction of duty.

                    “ We had no idea the developer would carry out such unauthorised work. It was only when the work started around February, did we realize what was happening. What’s more, he has also introduced illegalities like servant quarters and a toilet in the basement, creation of a paying guest facility etc. The BMC has not responded to a single complaint,” said a society member.

                    Pandit, who lives near the said property, has also written to the BMC on April 26 under the Gulmohur Area Societies Welfare Group. He has asked the municipal commissioner to withdraw the OC in view of the complaints.

                    Vijay Thakker, who owns Dev Land and Housing Pvt Ltd, said, “ Everything in the building has been made as per the plan. We are only constructing a bedroom on the 11th floor, nothing else.” When asked what documents he has to support his claim, he said that he has the approved plans and the OC. When pointed out that the OC marks the space as an open terrace, he said that the terrace has been maintained.

                    When asked if a separate permission has been taken for the construction, he said his office might have it.
                    Assistant Municipal Commissioner ( K- West) Parag Masurkar was informed about the matter on Friday but did not revert until Tuesday.

                      Eviction notices for some Gilbert Hill bldg residents

                      Buildings Old, But Don't Have Occupation Certificates

                      Residents of buildings in the eco-sensitive zone around Gilbert Hill in Andheri (West) are dreading the next few weeks, and it's not just for the landslides that the monsoon brings. Civic authorities have served notices asking inhabitants of certain buildings to vacate the structures as they do not possess the mandatory occupation certificate (OC).The occupants of Jesal apartment have got summons to appear before the Vile Parle metropolitan magistrate's court on Wednesday .Residents of neighbouring Rajveer and Sai Sahawas in the same layout have also reportedly been asked to leave.

                      The law department of K West ward informed the court that BMC engineers inspected Jesal on January 27 and found they did not have the necessary occupation certificate. Jesal is an 18-year-old apartment building located near the recreation ground at Gilbert Hill. It has 28 flats. On February 6, the authorities issued eviction notices. On February 15, officials examined the premises again and found they had failed to move.

                      “We have received summons from the magistrate's court to appear on June 8. We are extremely worried and are seeking legal advice,“ said Jesal society chairman Mohammed Arif. “We have an electricity connection but we pay double charges for civic water supply since we do not have an OC.“
                      Society members say that over the years, they had approached builder Alpesh Ajmera to complete the paperwork with the authorities but found him uncooperative. “We went ahead and formed the society nevertheless. He did not even share documents with us; in fact we secured the approved plans by filing a plea under RTI,“ said one.

                      Ajmera was travelling Ajmera was travelling abroad and could not be reached. His brother Jiten said he was not aware of the matter.

                      Assistant municipal commissioner of K West ward Parag Masurkar said it was likely that the building proposals department had issued a notice for unauthorized occupation.

                      However, former corporator Mohsin Haider said: “The BMC has issued this notice to save its own skin. Its officers have watched silently since construction in the area began 25 years ago.They kept granting full completion certificates to new buildings though the old ones did not have OCs and completion certificates.One new building is located inside a prominent recreation ground. I told municipal commissioner Ajoy Mehta that Gilbert Hill is likely to become Andheri's Campa Cola.“
                      The buildings in the Campa Cola compound in Worli came up flouting rules as BMC officials turned a blind eye. Now they could be regularized.
