Worli - MHADA has started preparations for the redevelopment of the BDD chawls in Worli after inviting tenders for the redevelopment of BDD chawls in Naigaon and Delisle Road. The MHADA authorities have invited tenders for soil testing of the Worli BDD chawls. The tenders for redevelopment have not been issued due to some technical problems, said sources.
Meanwhile, Kiran Mane, a resident of BDD chawl in Worli, has asked why the MHADA is in a hurry to start the work even after stiff oppose from the chawl residents. The residents’ associations have also warned that they will not allow the testing of soil in the BDD chawls here. Mane has also claimed that residents will stage agitation after the BMC polls.
