The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has been continuously taking action against illegal structures in the city. The Ghansoli and Airoli ward demolished illegal structures in the past two days. Last week, the Nerul and Kopar Khairane ward had removed the unauthorized structures.

Earlier, the Airoli ward office had issued notices under Section 54 of the Maharashtra Regional Planning and Town Planning Act, 1966 and asked builders to remove the illegal structures constructed at plot number J-162 and A-07 in sector 3 without the civic body’s permission. Despite the notice, instead of removing the illegal structure, they continued the construction.

Finally, the Airoli ward carried out a crackdown and demolished the unauthorized construction in the presence of police

Similarly, two ground-floor illegal structures were constructed at Arjunwadi in the Ghansoli area without any prior permission of the corporation. A notice under Section 54 of the MRTP Act, 1966 was issued by the Ghansoli ward office which asked to remove the illegal structure. However, they continued the unauthorized construction. Finally, the Ghansoli ward office removed two unauthorized constructions in the last two days.
