In a shocking development, the Congress has alleged a scam of INR 10,000 crores in allotment of Transfer Development Rights (TDR) and premium in a Project Affected People (PAP) housing plan by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

Former civic leader of opposition Ravi Raja has claimed that there was a scam to the tune of INR 9,380 crores in the construction of 14,000 housing units for PAP in Chandivali, Mulund, Bhandup and Parel.

Congress alleged that the BMC has given builders benefits amounting to INR 9,380.25 crores in the form of credit notes during these projects. As these credit notes can be used any time, and are transferable, the civic body is set to lose the amount over the next few years, Ravi Raja said in a statement.

Ravi Raja made these statements during a press conference yesterday, May 19, and said that he has filed a complaint against the project before Lokayukta, Municipal Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal and Central Vigilance Committee (CVC) seeking a detailed inquiry.

These houses are supposed to be given to people who will be relocated due to various projects of the BMC like construction of storm water drainage, water pipelines, bridges, etc.

Ravi Raja accused the civic body of giving benefits of around INR 8,000-10,000 crores to developers in the PAP rehabilitation project.

BMC officials said they will review the allegation and reply.
