Advovate Yashwant Shenoy, the lawyer who got the landmark judgement of demolishing high rises coming as obstacles around Mumbai airport has also filed a PIL against the Navi Mumbai airport. According to YS, the Navi Mumbai airport is the most murkier of airport he has researched so far. He has questioned the role of CIDCO of overlooking safety concerns.
He says that architects and builders are aware that the common buyers of properties in the vicinity stand the chance of their homes being demolished but they continue to fool buyers into buying.
He says that people don’t realize but courts are duty bound to save lives and hence he expects the court to intervene in the proposed Navi Mumbai airport project. According to him either the airport will not be or towers will be demolished. He says that everyone can get back a home, but can anyone return a life lost?
In Mumbai the action requires action against people already living in homes that pose danger to air safety but the Navi Mumbai airport project is still in a proposal state. The PIL by petitioner Yashwant Shenoy puts a question mark on the big projects of several builders. Paradise group’s ambitious projects like Sai World Empire, Sai Mannat, Sai World City, Shah Group’s Shah Kingdom, Matathon group’s Nexzon, India Bulls and Arihant group projects are to be hit. When NMTV tried to contact the builders of various high rises coming up in Kharghar, Kamothe, Panvel they were not available for comment. Newly formed Panvel City Municipal corporation chief Dr Sudhakar Shinde refused to comment on camera but informed NMTV off the camera that still most of the areas where there are high rises are with CIDCO while on the other hand CIDCO Jt MD Prajakta Lavangare Verma who heads the Navi Mumbai Airport project informed off the camera that she will first look into this PIL and will then give her opinion on this development.
Meanwhile builders are trying their level best to make use of the festive season to sell their properties to rake as much money they can though it will be unethical and cheating the buyers in the long run as most of the projects will remain only on papers and never become a reality. Hence the public are cautioned before they invest their hard earned money on projects which will be only fake dreams.
