The last general body meeting has exposed that there are possibilities that gullible citizens living in dilapidated CIDCO homes can be fooled by fraud architects. One such architect mis-guiding citizens in Navi Mumbai goes by the name architect Milind Pawar. The architect has reportedly attempted to fraud citizens of B3 type at Sector 2 Vashi by promising them FSI more than the permissible 2.5 FSI. Courtesy an alert local corporator, the issue was brought to the attention of former Commissioner Tukaram Mundhe. In her letter to the then Commissioner, Divya Gaikwad shared the fraud plans that the architect Milind Pawar was using to fool B-3 type citizens in her ward. Taking cognisance that the citizens can be fooled by the fraud architect, NMMC ADTP Momin Ovais wrote a letter to the fraud architect warning him not to fool citizens. One and a half year later, senior NCP corporators in NMMC took up the same issue but with the intent to safeguard Milind Pawar and oust Momin Ovais from NMMC. Seeing her own party corporators defending Milind Pawar, NCP corporator Divya Gaikwad took a stand and informed the house that Milind Pawar is indeed a fraud architect.
She was backed by senior corporators of Shiv Sena, including Opposition Leader Vijay Chougule.
He pointed out that the NMMC warned the architect not to fool citizens.
Shiv Sena corporator M K Madhvi too exposed the fraud architect Milind Pawar.
He pointed out that NCP Corporator Divya Gaikwad had exposed the same in her letter to the Commissioner.
He made a startling revelation that the fraud architect has political backing.
He said the administration had rightly exposed Milind Pawar.
Opposition Leader Vijay Chougule read that the letter was merely a warning.
Finally Commissioner Dr Ramaswamy N vindicated the stand of NCP corporator Divya Gaikwad and the Shiv Sena corporators by confirming that the fraud architect Milind Pawar was indeed misleading citizens.
With this revelation, residents living in dilapidated CIDCO houses should be careful of fraud and dubious architects like Milind Pawar to ensure that they are not fooled in the name of redevelopment and their projects are not stuck for years due to legal complications. Bureau report – NMTV News.
