Court breathed a sigh of relief

Some people had to face problems

Renovation already stopped

The petition by Sood and his wife stated that the petitioners had already stopped the work of interior renovation for which there was no need for permission as per the provisions of Section 43 of the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning Act, 1966, therefore, the defendants were allowed to construct the building.

Complaint letter was sent to police
The BMC had inspected the building and found that Sood allegedly did not follow the rules and the illegal construction continued even after he was given notice in October last year. After this, a complaint letter was sent to the police. The police have not yet registered an FIR in the case.
