MUMBAI: BJP city unit chief Ashish Shelar wants CM Devendra Fadnavis to stop the civic body from accepting purchase notices for reserved Development Plan (DP) plots. TOI had published the story in its January 8 edition.

The plots have been reserved for various public amenities. There are around 3,000 plots reserved as open spaces and so far only 1,000 have been acquired. The fear is that the two-year extension for the revision of the DP will now provide an opportunity to land owners whose plots are reserved to force the BMC to either purchase the plots or allow the reservation to lapse. Activists want the BMC to give Transfer of Development Rights and ensure that every open space reservation is acquired. Shelar, the legislator from Bandra west, had raised the issue of purchase notices during a discussion on the amendment to the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning (MRTP) Act in the state assembly last month. Shelar had demanded that the government must not allow purchase notices to be served now.

"In my letter to the CM I have pointed out that the issue needs to be addressed urgently as the time limit for the preparation of the next DP has been extended. I have asked the CM to call a meeting," he said.

Activist Pankaj Joshi said the purchase notices should not be accepted by the BMC. "The BMC has already published its intent to revise the DP. It must not accept purchase notices but allow the reservations to continue in the revised plan," he said.
