National Textile Corporation Fined Rs 140 Crore for Redevelopment of Land Without Permit
The fine was slapped on the National Textile Corporation for redevelopment of a mill land in Mumbai's Byculla sans requisite permissions, payment of lease rent and redevelopment charges.
Mumbai: The Mumbai district collector's (city) office has levied a fine of Rs 139.88 crore on the National Textile Corporation (NTC) in connection with the redevelopment of a mill land in Byculla here sans requisite permissions, payment of lease rent and redevelopment charges.
District Collector Shivaji Jondhale confirmed the development and said a communication to this effect was sent to the NTC on July 3.
According to the official, the corporation had seven mills in Mumbai.
In the 90s, when the mill redevelopment began, the lands were divided into three parts - two of which went to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for development of garden and to the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) for constructing a residential building meant for mill workers.
The remaining part was sold to a private developer. The fine slapped pertains to the plot handed over to the MHADA.
"The government land they (NTC) had given to MHADA was a leased one (New Kaiser Mills plot, admeasuring over 30,000 sq m). But it handed over the land to MHADA after the lease expired. It was a government land. So, it means that they handed over the government land to the government itself," Jondhale said.
"They have not paid the lease rent and redevelopment charges. They should have sought redevelopment permission from the Maharashtra government," he added.
