The Bombay High Court dismissed the review petition of the  Maharashtra Chamber of Industries (MCHI) to seek lift of ban on the new  constructions in the city.

The bench of justice Abhay Oke and  Chandrakant Bhadang said that the review of this ban cannot be taken up  as the BMC has not yet solved the dumping ground issue.

The HC had  passed strictures against the BMC for failing to neglect the violation  of solid waste management in the city. The court, on March 1, 2016, had  also passed an order banning new residential construction projects on  private land in the city. The court had excluded the projects of MHADA,  SRA, government agencies, hospital, educational institutes etc from this  ban order.
Many projects of private builders have got stalled due to  the lack of permission from the authorities. This has badly affected  the builders as well as customers. This had forced the MCHI to approach  the court for review of its ban order.

Meanwhile, MCHI spokesperson  told Mumbai Live that future course of action would be decided soon  after its petition got dismissed from the court.
