MNS alleges that BMC not taking over encroached plot from the Grand Hyatt Hotel
The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has alleged that Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is dilly-dallying on taking possession of the plot from the Grand Hyatt Hotel at Kalina.
In February, the BMC had taken over the 3,000 sq mt plot from the hotel authorities, after the state Lokayukta had directed it to reclaim the plot in December last year. However, a second plot admeasuring 3,900 sq mt is yet to be handed over to the civic body. The land is categorised as ‘reserved open space for public use.’
The MNS has written a letter to the BMC asking it to take over the plot at the earliest. However, hotel authorities have said that the said plot would be handed over to the BMC within couple of months.
