BMC yet to send notice to Manish Malhotra for illegal constructions at Pali Hill bungalow

Even though it has been a week since the BMC found illegal constructions at the bungalow of fashion designer Manish Malhotra, the civic body is yet to give him notice regarding the same.

Earlier, the BMC had partly demolished Actor Kangana Ranaut’s office citing reasons of illegal construction. On the same day, the civic body had also cornered Manish Malhotra, the fashion designer, for turning his house into a commercial space and not acquiring the due permission for it. The team had inspected Malhotra’s bungalow the same day which is located at the Pali Hill in Bandra (West) for alleged illegal constructions. Ranaut and Malhotra are said to be neighbours as their houses lie next to each other.

The four violations of illegal construction spotted at the ace designer's house happen to be an unauthorized change of residential use to commercial use on the first floor, unauthorized erections of partitions in the first floor, unauthorized construction of brick masonry wall and a cement sheet roof on the second-floor terrace and unauthorized construction of a shed with steel angles and a cement sheet roof on the same terrace.

On the other hand, the BMC had issued a 'stop work notice' to Kangana Ranaut under section 354(A) of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act and told the actor to produce permission within 24 hours. On the next day, BMC officials stuck a fresh notice at her office stating that the structure will be demolished. The BMC then partially demolished the building before Ranaut's lawyer moved the HC, which gave her interim relief from the demolition process. However, in Malhotra’s case, the BMC said it had prepared a notice on September 7 but did not send it to him as of now.
