BMC to discuss proposals related to cessed, non-cessed buildings

This comes after the Dongri building collapse which caught the BMC and Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) in a blame game

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will discuss two proposals related to cessed and non-cessed buildings in its house by August end this year. The proposals have been introduced by Shiv Sena leaders Samadhan Sarvankar and Sadanand Parab. 

The civic body intends to create a special cell which will be a single platform engaged in providing all information regarding construction, repairs current for cessed and non-cessed buildings and also chawls. Moreover, for the tenants in the cessed and non-cessed buildings which have gone for redevelopment, the BMC wants the policy of inclusive redevelopment to be driven by inclusion of providing alternate housing to the residents.

In Mumbai, nearly 14,000 cessed buildings are located in South Mumbai while non-cessed buildings are expected to be in thousands.  

This comes after the Dongri building collapse which caught the BMC and Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) in a blame game. BMC and MHADA, both refrained from taking any responsibility. Earlier, MHADA had admitted that it was a cessed building but later denied the same saying that it wasn’t its property.
