Encroachers are back ‘home’ on Tulsi Pipe Rd

MUMBAI: Six years after encroachments on Tulsi Pipe Road were cleared, the encroachers are back. Activists said the stretch could go back to encroachers unless government agencies act urgently.

In 2009, the BMC had cleared a 2 km stretch between Mahim and Matunga railway stations on Senapati Bapat Marg.

The BMC had invited artists to paint the walls along the railway tracks where slums stood.

Activists said that the number of encroachments is rising. Activist Tasneem Shukul said that timely action is required before the situation spins out of control. "The BMC, police and residents must come together to remove the encroachments. Government authorities have a bigger role," said Shukul.

Civic officials said that evicting encroachers and confiscating their belongings has not kept them from returning.

Assistant municipal commissioner Sharad Ughade said, "We have evicted them often but they keep coming. We will act against them again."

Activist Ashok Rawat said many families have pitched camp on the footpath near Mahim where they weave cane baskets. "At Dadar, encroachers sell vegetables and and create nuisance around."
