Save Arun Cooperative Housing Society

Our society is known as Arun Cooperative Housing Society Ltd. (near Hanuman Chowk, LT Road, Mulund East, Mumbai-400081). The building was constructed and completed with all due required permissions and necessary plans, like IOD (Intimation of Disapproval), CC (Commencement Certificate), and Sanctioned Approved Plan in 1979-80. We were also provided OC (Occupancy Certificate), so most of our members started residing in the above-mentioned building. We formed the Co-operative Housing Society in 1982, which was duly registered in 1982 itself. In the year of 2006, when the building started requiring more maintenance, we thought of going for redevelopment. But then we found that there is a GR (Garden Reservation) on a major portion of our standing building, which marks it as an open space.

So since the year 2007, we started sending letters to the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) for Removing GR, which was wrongly put on a Legally Standing Building in the year 1991 by BMC. After several letters and personal visits to the BMC's Concerned Department, we were told that it will be removed in the year 2014 when the New DP (Developmental Plan) of 2034 will be published.

We still kept sending letters and when the first draft DP of 2034 was published, our GR was removed. But due to some reason that DP was scrapped. New Suggestions and Objections were invited from the public and a committee was appointed by the Maharashtra Government, which heard the grievances of the affected parties. We followed the entire proceedings and successfully brought our case before the government approved committee and they found out plea genuine for the removal of the GR. So they removed the GR from our building. But, when the said recommendation went to UD (Urban Development Department), they, without adhering to the merit of the plea, again reinstated the earlier (the year 1991) position. To make matters worse, they put our matter in Part A (Schedule A), where we can't even put our objections. This Act of UD is Arbitrary and against Natural Justice. Since then, we are running pillar to pillar and oscillating between BMC and UD.

We are (Almost all) senior citizens and we need your help to restore our building. Please sign our petition, so that it reaches the concerned authorities. Please take our appeal sincerely and help us in this cause and secure Justice for us.

With Humble Regards,
