20,000 ILLEGAL constructions in Navi Mumbai will soon be a thing of the
past, as the state has decided to redevelop them in a cluster scheme.
These illegal buildings are owned by project- affected people who are living on gaothan ( village precinct) land.
Most of these constructions are built on the land acquired by the government.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis informed the state Assembly on
Thursday, that the government would allot an FSI ( floor space index) of
4 for cluster development in Navi Mumbai. This means the gaothans will
have vertical growth, instead of their present village- like look. The
clusters will merge with the existing planned constructions in the areas
overlooked by the CIDCO and Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation.
Any cluster to be developed by the state under the urban renewal scheme will be
approved only after preparing an impact assessment report.
NCP legislator Sandip Naik later told reporters that the government
should verify if all PAPs will get the benefit of the decision.
However, BJP MLA Manda Mhatre said the earlier Congress- NCP government
did not take the decision in the last 15 years, but Fadnavis has taken
it, which will benefit the people.
