caretaker-1Citizens’ groups and NGOs waiting in queue to adopt open spaces in their vicinity will have to wait longer as civic officials have stated that adoption of all plots had also been stayed. Clearing the confusion over chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh’s stay on the MCGM’s caretaker policy, civic officials said that adoption of all plots had also been stayed. Even as several groups across the city have paid the required deposit of Rs 25,000 waiting for their applications to be cleared, there is still no clear indicator as to when they will get to tend to those plots. The directives stated that recreation/playground plots over 15,000 sq-mt in area-that had been proposed to be handed over under the caretaker policy-should neither be given for adoption nor under the caretaker policy. Additional Municipal Commissioner R A Rajeev further stated that the stay is completely for the entire caretaker policy no matter irrespective of the plot being big or small. Bureau report
