HC questions Adarsh Society

On Wednesday, Bombay High Court asked the controversial Adarsh Housing Society to submit a list of its original members, along with existing members.

The society filed the petition challenging cut-off of water and power supply as well as cancellation of occupation certificate.

Hearing the petition, high court asked when Defense handed over the land to state. The division Bench of also asked the society to produce terms and conditions of allotment of land by state government in January 2003, and whether permissions were taken when height of building was increased.

The 31-storey building, in South Mumbai, became controversial after it was reported that it stood on Defense land violating CRZ regulations, and was originally meant for relatives of martyrs of Kargil war. The next hearing for the matter will now come up on December 16.

MMRDA cancelled the objection certificate after State received communication from Ministry of Environment and Forests and before cancellation of objection certificate, as well as power/water cut-off, no hearing was given.
