MHADA buildings sold to be refurbished; owners to get more ISP incentives | Bombay News

Mumbai: Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Friday asked the Urban Development Department to provide more benefits for the redevelopment of derelict MHADA buildings, old and dilapidated structures, which have been redeveloped with repair funds by the Mumbai Repairs and Reconstruction Board in the 1980s and 90s.

The city is currently home to 338 such buildings. These buildings are again in a dilapidated state and there was no legislation to redevelop them. Last year, the state government wanted to introduce a chapter called 33 (24) in DCPR to facilitate the redevelopment of buildings.

A delegation from the MHADA cell of the Bharatiya Janata Party met Shinde at the Sahyadri Guest House, where they had a detailed discussion on the matter.

“We have requested improved FSI incentives and other equal provisions under DCPR Section 33(7), which deals with the redevelopment of cess MHADA buildings. This can make the proposal more attractive and feasible for owners and builders. CM Shinde accepted this,” said Milind Tulaskar, who heads the BJP’s MHADA cell.

The meeting was also attended by MP Rahul Shewale. Additional Chief Secretary of Urban Development Department – 1, Bhushan Gagrani said, “We will incorporate this in the notification.”

The Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) group had planned to agitate for a special concession for these residents on this. “This CM only makes announcements. We have to see how they implement it,” Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aditya Thackeray said.
