Mumbai: The deadline for the residents of Campa Cola society in Mumbai to vacate their flats ends on Thursday.
More than 100 residents who are living in the nine buildings have to vacate their apartments today following the Supreme Court order.
The plea of residents of the building living there for years, located in suburban Worli, was rejected by the Supreme Court on Tuesday. Their plea sought a stay on the demolition of their flats till the court decides on their curative petition, which is to come up for hearing next month.
The curative petition, quoting information received through RTI, says that the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai and the state had decided to regularise the illegal construction in 1985.
Meanwhile, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan earlier said said that the state government will not intervene in the Campa Cola building issue, but he was willing to consider any proposal provided it is in the legal framework and does not affect the Supreme Court order regarding the razing of the flats.
Over 100 illegal flats are to be razed by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai.
