The Hillside Residents Welfare Association and the Peoples Power of Nation — fighting for getting flats built on forest land — are seeking information from affected residents.

This information, about number of flats affected, will be submitted to the Supreme Court before September 25. “The office bearers of the affected complexes and societies are requested to urgently verify the details with us,” said Prakash Padikkal, association’s conveyor.

The Bombay High Court last year deemed lakhs of flats in Thane, Mulund, Borivli and Kandivli as illegal because they were built on forest land.

The SC will take a final decision on September 30.
