20 BUILDERS IN THE RED TO BMC

Builders who have developed BMC land under the slum rehabilitation program have delayed in paying  'premium' of around 400 crores to the civic body

In a letter to the Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta, Samajwadi Party councilor Ashraf Azmi has written that about 20 builders who have developed various projects in the city have delayed in paying about Rs 400 crores to Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). These properties that are valued at about 1236 crores are spread all across the city. These councilor has questioned that when the civic body does not have money to pay the bonuses of its employees and after the Octroi revenue was stopped, why is the civic body unable to recover such a huge amount from these builders who are supported by the ruling party members.

Azmi has written in the letter that the money  should be used for the development of the city. He also said that the BMC cannot avoid its responsibilities by just delivering a show cause notice to theses builders, instead it should take strict action against them.

“The BMC has sent only a show cause notice to these builders back in March, but this is not how its works. Where is the transparency that the ruling party promised?” Azmi questioned.

The premium is based on the ready reckoner rate and the The exact amount to be paid to the civic body comes to around Rs 394, 09, 96, 835.
