After Kangana Ranaut, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) imposed a letter to leading fashion designer Manish Malhotra for ‘unauthorized construction’ at his house.
BMC has asked Manish to revert in seven days with a proper explanation and sufficient cause as to why the work should not be pulled down, a civic official said here on Thursday.
“Under Section 351(1) of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act, 1888 and as per the Notification dated April 4, 2013, it has been notified that Manish Malhotra has erected/commenced erection of a building/executed/commenced executions of certain work or changed the existing user at premises without permission from the competent authority,” the BMC said in the notice, a copy of which was accessed by ANI.
Malhotra’s commercial office is on the first floor of the bungalow on Nargis Dutt Road in Pali Hill area of suburban Bandra.
Moreover, the notice includes “addition and alteration by way of erecting partitions/cabins on the first floor, unauthorised construction of two structures with a brick masonry wall and AC sheet roof on the second-floor terrace.”
On Wednesday, BMC demolished “most of the 14 illegal alterations” at Kangana’s Bandra bungalow ,told an official.
However, the Bombay High Court has stayed the demolition drive ongoing by BMC at Kangana’s bungalow.A bench of the High Court also asked the BMC to file a reply on her petition in the matter.
