10723Fw: Understanding BMC / Building Proposals department.
- Feb 28, 2006The information on the Building Proposals & Approvals Dept. in BMC needs
to be expanded and given with the different offices located in the city.
All plots in the suburbs are having a survey number. How can one get the
information of the survey numbers & the area of the plots along a street -
say 16th. road Bandra West ? Which office will give this information under
the Right to Information act ?
We see very large buildings comimg up on plots which had just buildings of
ground and 2 floors before the old building was demolished. Visually the
built up area over 12 floors looks like an FSI of 8 times or more to the
size of the plot. And this is given all approvals by the concerned
Then the sewage drains overflow out of the manholes and stink up the road
and the neighhood. At Carter Road 4 sewage drains are connected to the
Storm Water drains and the sewage flows at all times into the sea shore, -
the area stinks at all times. The BMC knows this and will not do anything.
Now some big project of sewage drains is in progress at Carter road.
Hopefully the sewage will be connected to these drains.
Thank you for the effort to improve the city governance.
