Cidco asks NMMC to vacate ‘encroached’ garden plot

NAVI MUMBAI: The stand-off between Cidco and NMMC took on a new twist after the town planning body asked the civic body to vacate the plot in Nerul.

The face-off started when Cidco sold two plots in sector 13, Nerul to a private firm and realized that the NMMC had built a huge garden in that space.

The civic body had insisted that it owned the plot and demanded that Cidco check the land documents.

Cidco officials requested the land documents and said that it had ownership of the plots where a garden has been built.

Cidco has now given NMMC two-three days to back off and clear the land.

NMMC had claimed that the 5,000 sq metre area plot, from the total land belongs to them, therefore Cidco don’t have any right to take any action on the plots.

“The plot numbers 4 and 5 are Cidco plots, and we have confirmed from the city planning department. As far as the 5,000 sq metre of plot is concerned, which civic official claimed that it belongs to NMMC, the planning department confirms that it doesn’t come under these plots, instead it is a separate plot of the same area, which belongs to NMMC at a different location,” said Manoharan Menon, officer on special duty, Cidco.

On other hand the NMMC are firm on their part that they will retain the garden plot.

“We just want Cidco to allot the 5,000 square metre plot to NMMC, as it is difficult to demolish the garden,” said deputy municipal commissioner, Subhash Ingale.

Activists are not impressed by this exchange, especially after it came to light that the NMMC spent almost Rs 40 lakh over the past seven years.

“The Cidco confirmation has made it clear that the plot was encroached by the NMMC. This has been a waste of public money. If the any action is not taken, it will give rise to more such scams,” said Anarjit Chauhan, an RTI activist.
