Court had ruled that all floors above the fifth floor in the buildings would have to be demolished and said the residents could not approach any authority, government or political body for regularisation of the illegal floors.
Illegal floors of Midtown Apartments, Esha Ekta Apartments, Shubh Apartments, Patel Apartments (two buildings), B Y Apartments and Orchid Apartments comprise 140 flats. While the builders were granted permission for ground-plus-five floors, Midtown has 20 floors, Orchid has 17, Esha Ekta has eight, Shubh comprises seven and B Y and Patel have six floors each.
Following the SC verdict in February this year, BMC had issued a 48-hour demolition notice to residents of the 35 unauthorised floors.
Residents, however, approached the Supreme Court asking for regularisation of their unauthorised floors under permissible FSI. The SC later quashed their request and granted them time till October to vacate. The latest Supreme Court order of September 11, however, allows Campa Cola residents to approach BMC for regularising their structures.
