BMC orders removal of concrete plant running illegally in Wadala, ET RealEstate

June 24, 2023

MUMBAI: The BMC has issued a speaking order to remove the Ready-Mix Concrete (RMC) plant, which was operating illegally for more than three years, near the Imax theatre, Bhakti Park, Wadala.

The BMC M-West ward had earlier served a notice to the RMC plant. As the operators of the plant had failed to submit any proof that the RMC plant was authorised, the M-West ward served a speaking order recently to Ashok Buildcon to remove it .

The notice was served after complaints by citizens. As per officials of the building permissions department, the permission was accorded sanction for two temporary RMC batching plants in July 2018 on a temporary basis.

These were renewable every six months for three years. However, the building permissions department had revalidated the temporary permissions granted to the two plants only up to July 2019 and August 2019.

“There are many RMC plants operating illegally in the city. Cases should be filed against the owner of this plant under the environment act. The state should also recover, the revenue lost, from the owner of this plant,” said activist Santosh Daundkar.

Though the BMC M-West ward office had received complaints about the RMC plant operating without permissions on an industrial scale in a residential layout, no action was initiated.

Subsequently, Daundkar complained to the BMC zonal deputy municipal commissioner Harshad Kale, who then directed M-West ward officials to act on it.
