The Maharashtra government, which has decided to regularise unauthorised constructions till December 2015 on a mass scale in urban belts, has said that criminal cases will be filed against builders responsible for illegalities.
Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis told the legislative assembly that criminal cases will be filed against builders, who have undertaken illegal construction. “Action will also be taken against guilty officials,” Fadnavis said.
The policy to regularise unauthorised constructions is applicable to the entire state and not just in Thane and Navi Mumbai, he said.
The Supreme Court had stayed the demolition of illegal constructions in Digha, in Navi Mumbai, till July 31. On July 29, the minister of state for urban development, Ranjit Patil, had informed the legislative assembly that the government was planning a comprehensive policy, to regularise unauthorised constructions till December 2015 on a mass scale, in urban belts.
