Amazing that the Supreme Court said ‘these flats are to be destroyed’…
So many questions arise, do they not?
– what is the guarantee that the flats in the lower floors will not be damaged if the top floors are broken down?
– the buyers should have seen the paper work, but hey, why have the Municipal employees, state government employees, electricity company employees (why did they supply electricity to an illegal building?), what about the bankers who gave loans to people to buy in those buildings?
– could there could not have been a ‘regularising fine’ of Rs. 50,00,000 per flat?
– the builder, architect, ……….etc. get away without even a rap on the knuckles? Somewhere the justice systems does not seem to be very just, right?
– why cannot the government create a Real Estate Regulator who certifies every building? when will this happen? after 45 years?
Of course adding one more layer to the bureaucracy will not reduce problems (normally it increases problems) but the retail buyer can at least say -‘here is a certificate by a Central Gov authority saying this building is ready for usage…..or whatever….
A typical Mumbaikar has just NO visibility beyond his day to day needs.
The whole situation is scary – and it also sends a message to all of us that not all Indian problems can be solved with some cash and influence.
Honestly my heart goes out to the residents….and feeling helpless that there are no answers…tomorrow it could be our turn, is it not?
