With the Ganesh festivities done and dusted for this year, the GHMC is back to its work and is beginning by conducting a demolition drive to demolish those buildings that have constructed buildings without obtaining building permits.
In addition, the municipal body will also destroy those who have carried out construction work in violation of their building permits. The builders in the city are shocked by this decision by the GHMC. With the demolition drive currently going on in the city center, the old city builders have already started trying their best to please the GHMC Town Planning Official's to exclude their property from demolition.
The current scenario has created enough caution among everyday citizens to inquire about building permits before purchasing or renting a place. The town planning officials have exclaimed that many builders have been served several notices during their construction phases, to which they turned a blind eye, and now those buildings will be the first to be razed without notice or warning.
Builders of certain areas are raising questions about other builders not being questioned about their buildings due to a political influence behind it to which municipal officials have disagreed. However, the new and ongoing construction projects are being reviewed and checked for building permits and verifying that construction is happening according to the building plan. Some people have also raised non-payment of bribe money to the officials, being the reason to raze those buildings.
