BMC not maintaining new markets, say corporators

MUMBAI: Several newly constructed markets that have been handed over to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in lieu of additional Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) are in a pathetic condition as the BMC is not maintaining them.

According to the civic policy if a plot is reserved for a market and is owned by a private owner then the owner can construct a market on 40 % area of the land, hand it over to the BMC free of cost and then exploit the remaining land for development.

Under this policy there are many plots that have been handed over to the BMC by private owners and after being handed over the BMC hasn't given them rent, and haven't even maintained them.

Corporators in the standing committee and the improvement committee both slammed the civic administration for neglecting these markets and cause revenue loss to the BMC by not renting the shops

The issue was raised in the improvements committee by BJP corporator from Mulund

Prakash Gangadhare. He said that there is a municipal market handed over to the BMC by a private owner six years back in Grant Road and yet the civic body hasn't put it to use. "Today that market is being used to play by the local kids and all kinds of illegal activities are happening there," said Gangadhare.

"There is a market in IC colony in Borivali that was handed over to the BMC two years back, and yet the BMC hasn't rented the shops in the market. And people are using it as a toilet now," said Shiv Sena corporator Subha Raul

There are 103 municipal markets in all; most of these markets are dilapidated and poor condition.

Corporators have said that since the BMC cannot get these markets repaired they should at least maintain the ready-made markets that they are getting from the private owners.

"The BMC has a funny attitude towards these market plots, they themselves are not in a position to give good markets to the city and the once that they are getting free of cost are also not being maintained,"said Mohsin Haider, Congress corporator.
