The Stone Age Hookah Parlor at Vashi’s City Center Mall was on the target list of the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation’s Encroachment Dept. Officials of the department razed down the weather shed made by the hookah parlor without permission from NMMC. However, the action did raise eye brows for most of the commercial complexes in the very area have illegal extensions, entrances and encroachment, yet just one restaurant was target from the list of violators. Stone Age Hookah Parlor paid a heavy price for reasons more than just not taking permission for building a weather shed. The NMMC Encroachment Dept. in the presence of the Navi Mumbai Police, brought down the complete illegal extension and weather shed built by Stone Age Hookah Parlor at Vashi’s City Center Mall. The NMMC Asst. Municipal Commissioner informed the media the same after bringing down the illegal shed and collecting Rs. 50, 000 penalty from the hookah parlour. However, what has not gone unnoticed is the fact that other commercial complexes on the same road as City Center Mall like Wonder Wood, Furniture Mall, Sony World, Essenza, Hotel Amol and others have illegally extensions, entrances and encroachments facing but the NMMC has brought down its hammers only on one of the small commercial units within City Center Mall. The same corporation fails to take action against all the violators despite its own record showing that most of the commercial complexes have illegalities in their structures. If the administration continues to not take action against the other violators on Sector 19D, Vashi they might come under clouds of allegations ranging from corruption to discrimination in action against violators.
