Builder forges documents to sell flats meant for PAPs, booked

The complainant, Bhupesh Rane, an assistant engineer of K ward, stated in his complaint that the construction firm sold seven one-room flats – which were meant for PAPs – in a project named, The Kollage, in Gundavali, Andheri East, for making a profit. The complaint added that earlier the builder had handed the said flats over to the BMC in exchange for some extra floor space index (FSI).

The BMC got to know about this when some PAPs from Marol were allotted the said flats and were not even allowed to enter the building, saying that the flats they were claiming were owned by others. “In this manner, the builder and his people knowingly interfered with the work of the government officials,” said the complaint.

Problems persist; BMC Twitter ineffectual

The Mumbai North Central District Forum has accused the BMC of failing to address citizens' complaints through its social media channels, despite doubling its budget for the service. The BMC awarded a social media contract to Concept Communication in November 2019 for nearly INR20m ($263,000) to provide a 17-strong team of social media experts. However, the MNCDF alleges the team is ineffective, and that previously active Twitter officers are now ignoring complaints. Several citizens' groups have called for the BMC to introduce a complaint number and time frame for redressal.
