Agarwal-comtt-1To check whether there is any scope regularizing the illegal constructions in Navi Mumbai jurisdiction, members of the Agrawal committee held a public meeting with citizens at NMMC HQ. The state government has formed the Agrawal Committee in order to study and check the viability of regularizing the illegal constructions made under the jurisdiction of six corporations of the Thane district. The committee recently paid a visit to the NMMC HQ to hear the public on their say about the various concerns of this sector. Illegal construction and violations of most rules in books is rampant in Navi Mumbai. Citizens and public representatives who did attend the meeting raised several issues of the city in front of the committee. The various subjects that citizens raised were the failure of NMMC to approve their GDCR, illegal buildings in Sector 17 Vashi, violations of all parking norms in Big Splash in sector 17, Vashi, violations in the newly developed towers in Vashi like the Ganesh Towers, encroachments on land belonging to CIDCO, NMMC and MIDC besides other issues. Members suggested that the state government form a single governing authority that will head NMMC, CIDCO and MIDC for better coordination that by far is the biggest challenge of Navi Mumbai. Most citizens and journalists are completely against the formation of a committee. Journalist Narayan Jadhav says that the committee itself is bogus. He said that since GDCR is not in place, Navi Mumbai is illegal. Giving examples of violations he spoke about Big Splash. Sena Corporator Vithal More said that a concern in the city is re-construction of dilapidated buildings into towers. From NMMC, with R Parvati, Sana Warsia for NMTV News.
