60 Out Of 62 Hoardings In Mumbai Lack Govt Approval: Survey

OB Bureau

New Delhi: After the collapse of a hoarding in Ghatkopar on May 13, which resulted in 17 deaths and over 70 injuries, a survey by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) has revealed that 60 out of 62 hoardings installed in Mumbai lack the required ‘no objection certificate’ (NOC) from the state-run body.

The survey was carried out at the behest of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.

Over the past two months, MHADA has issued notices to owners of unauthorised hoardings, demanding their immediate removal.

The agency also warned that non-compliance would lead to the enforced dismantling of these structures with the help of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). MHADA’s statement highlighted that while these hoardings had been installed with BMC’s approval, they lacked MHADA’s NOC, necessitating swift corrective measures.

“The BMC has issued show cause notices to advertisers, requiring them to submit MHADA’s NOC within a specified period. Failure to comply will result in the revocation of advertising permits and legal action under the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act 1888,” the release stated.
