"Even after building is constructed there is no respite for residents living in the vicinity of Godrej Nest since Godrej Properties have started side business of using the site to sell RMC flouting all norms," wrote Twitter user who goes by the handle @SalilK10.

The same could not be verified independently.

Irked resident says, "I'm gonna tweet everyday till action is taken"

"Godrej Nest construction site now being used as a ready-mix concrete factory to sell concrete to nearby construction sites. Rampant violation going on as @GodrejGroup @iGodrejproperty @GodrejAndBoyce are busy making money while the entire neighbouring residential," he had written.

According to his thread, the user has been raising concern with authorities like BMC, Mumbai Police apart from the company since December 12. Sharing visuals from the site, he complains about the "open flouting of norms" and said that "tax-paying citizens cope with continuous noise, sound pollution".

A fire was also reported at the site on Tuesday, December 20 which was later doused. Sharing a video of the same, the Twitter user had claimed that the construction sie flouts all fire safety protocols as well and that people struggled to put out fire in the building.
