BMC to demolish part of Amitabh Bachchan’s bungalow Prateeksha. As per reports, the BMC recently gave notice to Bachchan’s family for road widening of the Sant Dnyaneshwar Marg road.
Miranda stated, “BMC gave notice to Amitabh Bachchan in 2017 under road widening policy but no action was taken. When the notice is issued, why was that land not taken by BMC? No appeal required for road widening project after notice served,”
She added, “When the notice was issued, why was the land not taken? It belonged to a common person they would have taken it immediately under Section 299 of the Municipal Act notice that says you don’t have to wait for a second notice of appeal.”
The statement further says that the road winding project has been stopped because of the actor’s bungalow. “I wrote to the BMC in Feb 2021. I did not receive a reply so I had a telephonic conversation with the ward officer and wrote to the commissioner but still did not receive a reply. This is a very necessary project because there are two schools, a hospital, an ISKCON temple, and monuments in Mumbai are around. The road winding project has been suddenly stopped just because of Amitabh Bachchan’s Bungalow,”
The BMC has also instructed Mumbai Suburban Collector city survey officials to demarcate the exact portion of the bungalow required for the road widening project.
Sant Dnyaneshwar Marg connects Chandan cinema area to Link road towards Iskcon temple.
