Residents knew of illegality: SC

MUMBAI: The Supreme Court bench of Justices J S Khehar and C Nagappan on Tuesday dismissed the new petition of the Campa Cola Compound residents without even giving them time till the regular bench could hear it. The order paves the way for the BMC demolition squad to begin work.

Last week, the BMC had set June 2 as the deadline for the residents to hand over the keys. Even the Supreme Court had extended an earlier deadline to May 31 for the residents to vacate their flats.

Last February, the SC had ended the long-drawn battle between the two sides over the demolition notice issued almost two decades ago by upholding the knocking down of all 96 illegally constructed flats.

The residents had taken a last shot based on "new information not submitted in court so far".They claimed they were victims of the complicity between BMC officials and developers, and over 66,000 sq ft could be regularized.

The SC held that the residents could not be deemed to have been all that innocent as they had bought flats known to be unauthorized.

The BMC will now issue a notice under Section 488 of the BMC Act informing the residents that it will enter their premises and give them a time period to vacate their homes.

"There is no point asking them to vacate flats," additional municipal commissioner Mohan Adtani said. "They'll not be doing it... we will issue notices that we will enter the premise to execute the court order."

Adtani said the BMC would decide whether to go to court against residents with a contempt of court petition or just begin the eviction.
