The Bombay High Court has granted relief to actress Kangana Ranaut in her plea challenging demolition activity by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on her property in Bandra last September.
The Bombay High Court Order highlighted:
- The notice of demolition issued against Kangana Ranaut’s property is quashed and set aside. MCGM has proceeded on wrongful grounds against the rights of the citizens. It is nothing but malice in law.
- Court orders compensation against the loss caused to Kangana Ranaut. A valuer has been appointed. Orders reserved on the compensation after a report is given.
- Ranaut is allowed to take steps to make her property habitable. But that would be in compliance with the approved plan. If an application made to BMC for approval, it will be decided within 4 weeks.
- Ranaut can make an application for regularisation. No further steps can be taken by the BMC against such regularisation till the application disposed of. M/s Shetgiri is appointed as a valuer. Charges to be borne by Ranaut. In case of any issues, she can approach the Court
The Bombay High Court today ruled that there was no unauthorized construction as alleged by the BMC on Ranaut’s property, finding that it was only existing work as opposed to illegal alterations.
