Maharashtra, October 26: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan along with seven other persons have received notice from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday.
The notice has been issued for the illegal construction.
Right to Information (RTI) activists Anil Galgali asked details from P South Ward Office of Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) regarding the Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices (MRTP) notice issued to the eight persons.
“In 2016, Municipal Corporation along with Amitabh Bachchan has issued Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices (MRTP) notice to seven other people. They have made illegal construction in their Goregaon bungalow. They have made changes in their main maps for making illegal construction,” said Galgali.
As per the information received by Galgali, the notice was issued to seven other persons, along with Big B, namely Rajkumar Hirani, Oberoi Realty, Pankaj Balaji, Sanjay Vyas, Haresh Khandelwal and Haresh Jagtani on December 7, 2016, for the changes in their approved plans.
Architect Shashank Kokil submitted a proposal on January 5 2017, on receiving the MRTP notices, which was rejected by the MCGM’s Building Proposal department on March 17.
On May 6, the P South Ward office issued a final order to remove the violation and continue with the sanctioned plans. Kokil resubmitted the plans after the ward issued another notice stating that the due to non clarity of the regularisation proposal, it is difficult to continue with further actions, ANI reported.
Galgali also written to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta, demanding immediate action and carry out the demolition of illegal extension.
“In coming days, under MRTP, the municipal corporation is investigating to register FIR against Amitabh Bachchan and other people,” he added.
