While the local administration and the city planning body may seem concerned about the increasing illegal slums in the city, there is very little that they have done to curb it. A similar situation is vacant ground in sector 26 Vashi were slum dwellings have mushroomed. CIDCO states they are short of plots to construct houses and make them available to the LIG group of the city, but what can we say when innumerable illegal slums and chawls are mushrooming on CIDCO’s plot itself. This is CIDCO’s vacant plot at sec 26, Vashi. The board here states that this plot belongs to CIDCO, but one can see how the slum mafia has gobbled this land. The residents of this area informed that these slums were developed 5 years back. Now the question is that either the civic body does not know what is happening around the city or there is palm greasing by few officers who want to ignore this particular situation.
