Bombay HC asks Amitabh Bachchan to file representation to BMC against notice to acquire portion of bungalow Pratiksha


MUMBAI: The Bombay High Court on Wednesday directed actors Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan to file an appeal against the notice issued to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to acquire a part of their bungalow “Pratiksha” in suburban Juhu.

The Bachchan family had earlier this week moved the High Court challenging the notice issued to them by the civic body.

A division bench of Justices RD Dhanuka and SM Modak directed them to file a representation to the BMC within two weeks.

“Once the representation is filed, the BMC will hear and decide after six weeks. Once the decision is taken, no coercive action will be taken against the petitioners for three weeks,” the court said.

The court further said that if needed, the lawyers of the Bachchan family can also be heard personally.

The petition sought quashing of the BMC’s notice and an injunction to restrain the civic body from taking any action towards land acquisition.

Two notices were issued to the Bachchan family on April 20, 2017, stating that certain portions of the plots near their residential property are within the regular line of the street and that the BMC intends to occupy such land with walls and structures. is to do.

The Bachchan family deputed their representatives to appear at the BMC office and inquire about the notice and discuss the matter with the civic authorities.

He told the BMC officials that it would be easier for the civic body to widen the road in the opposite direction to the location of the plots.

The petition states that for a period of four years and nine months, till January 28, 2022, no action was taken by the BMC to implement the notice. In the meantime, the petitioners conceded that the notice issued was quashed and hence no formal objection was lodged.

On January 28, 2022, some BMC officials verbally informed the petitioners that they proposed to implement the impugned notices and would soon occupy a portion of the plots set out in the notices.

The petition states that the impugned notices do not take into account the building structures on the plots, which cannot be demolished as per the MMC Act.

The petition claimed that the BMC has not issued any notice to other holders of plots on the same side of the road and no action has been taken by them for widening the stretch of road showing disparity in action.
