BMC had demolished the bungalow of Kangana Ranaut in the month of September, earlier this year. After this, the actress had challenged the act of BMC in the court.
The demolition notice given to Kangana Ranaut stands quashed. Further, that the actress can take steps to make her property liveable once again and restore it in a proper condition.
The relief was granted by the High Court of Bombay to the actress, after she had filed a plea challenging the act of demolition by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). The Court observed that the action taken by the BMC was on a wrongful ground and violates the rights of the citizens.
The Court found malice in the actions taken by the Corporation that could be seen in the manner it worked. Further, an order allowing compensation to the actress has also been passed. The matter was being heard by a division banch comprising Hon’ble Justices SJ Kathawalla and RI Chagla.
“The Petitioner is allowed to take such steps as are required to make the said bungalow habitable so that the Petitioner can immediately start occupying and using the same. However, to the extent any demolished portion requires planning permission and such permission is not in place reconstruction of such portion can only be made either in compliance with the sanctioned plan or after seeking approval of the MCGM for the work proposed. In the event an application is made, the MCGM shall decide the same within a period of four weeks from the date of receipt of such application/plan”.
