Deadline for regularisation of illegal buildings in Nashik likely to go
Earlier, a deadline of May 31 was set but many stakeholders have not yet done the needful. Many have now sought an extension of the deadline.
The ruling BJP is mulling over an extension of the deadline too. Last week, at an informal meeting, mayor Ranjana Bhansi said there should be no deadline for regularisation, to enable the maximum number of people to benefit from this scheme.
Sambhaji Moruskar, Group leader in the NMC who has been urging that the authorities do away with the deadline, said, “We think there should be no deadline. There will be many property owners who may not have availed of the scheme. If we do not impose any deadline, maximum people can get their structures regularised. NMC will earn revenue too. There will be development in the city.”
The government had set a deadline of May 31 and the town planning department received nearly 3,000 applications, while the city has more than 6,000 properties eligible for regularisation through compounding charges.
