Save Juhu Airport land from in-situ SRA scheme!

This petition had 42 supporters

For decades we have seen Juhu Airport being encroached upon by slums. Now, Hon. CM has promised "in-situ" rehabilitation in contrary to the AAI board's recommendations.

The Airport Authority Board member MR S SURESH has clearly stated that “NO IN-SITU" Rehabilitation of encroachers should be allowed for SAFE AND SECURE AIRPORTS OPERATIONS at Mumbai Juhu airport and hence prefer ex-situ rehabilitation of encroachers/ slum dwellers.

Also, due to proximity to airport there will be height restrictions resulting in not many slum dwellers being accomodated in the first place!!

Politicians, to increase their voter base, have promised such encroachers “In situ” rehabilitation. This will not only make our airports unsafe, it will also be dangerous to millions of people around the Juhu airport and crores worth of airline inventory.

The Supreme Court - Stated by Hon'ble Justice B.N. Kirpal "rewarding an encroacher on public land with an alternative free site is like giving reward to pickpockets" 1. (2000) 8 SCC 19

We, citizens, second the concerns of Airport Authorities of India and urge for *EX-SITU* rehabilitation for encroachers.
