Navi Mumbai : Belapur MLA Manda Mhatre has got the Chief Minister Devendra Fadavnis’s final signatures on one of the most burning issues of Navi Mumbai : 2.5 FSI. An elated MLA Manda Mhatre told NMTV from Mantralaya, “I have the GR of 2.5 FSI for the redevelopment of dilapidated CIDCO buildings in my hand.”
For residents of JN Type Apartments and those living in dilapidated CIDCO homes, it has been a 15 year long wait of agony, fear and frustration. The news has created an excitement among citizens who voted against NCP’s Ganesh Naik and in favor of BJP’s Manda Mhatre, with the hope that their homes will be redeveloped. MLA Manda Mhatre said, “I had promised voters of my constituency that I will get them 2.5 FSI and within three months of getting elected, I kept my promise.”
The decision comes at a crucial time as NMMC is going into elections in April. This decision is going to set the spirits high for BJP ahead of the NMMC Elections.
