The situation is unique since these families are being evicted by BG Shirke Constructions, which is redeveloping all the 56 transit camps to build MHADA homes that will be sold by lottery to those who can afford.
Though they have been paying rent for decades, MHADA has woken up to the fact that its officials were wrong in legalising these rights.
The government should direct MHADA
to lower the prices of its flats under section 164 of the MHADA
Act, he said.
However, as he was not able to change her luck to get a flat under the MHADA
lottery system, Bhagwandas told the actress that her problem was of a more serious nature and required the expertise of a more capable baba.
Despite a number of meetings with MHADA officials, Minister of Housing Sachin Aher and Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and promises made by them of a new policy being drafted, nothing has happened so far, she said.
P has alleged that Shirke Constructions, the benefactor of many political parties, is personally very close to the top leaders of the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party and "therefore enjoys a monopoly with MHADA and carries out demolitions in the rains despite court rulings.
MHADA offices not only transferred the respective flats in the name of third parties but also collected the rent paid by the 14,000 occupants who have duly received rent receipts for decades.
To make matters worse, MHADA
, which had declared 24 residential buildings as extremely unsafe, has not been able to provide transit accommodation to all the families that have been asked to evacuate.
