Maharashtra government today said it has decided to regularise unauthorised constructions till December 2015 on a mass scale in the state’s urban belts.

Minister of State for Urban Development Ranjit Patil informed the Legislative Assembly that the government was planning a comprehensive policy for the entire state.

“This is an emotional matter for those, who have bought flats in such (illegal) buildings and are living there,” Patil said.

“The decision (to regularise constructions,) will be taken by the court. The government has only to go there (court) and declare its policy on the matter,” the minister said.

This policy will be applicable for the entire state, he said.

“Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had to rush to Nagpur today or else and announcement on the policy would have been made today itself,” Patil said.

Patil’s response came after a calling attention notice on illegal constructions at Digha in Navi Mumbai was put off owing to absence of Fadnavis, who also holds the Urban Development portfolio.

NCP MLA Jayant Patil said the Supreme Court had stayed the demolition of illegal constructions in Digha till July 31. If demolitions begin, it will be Injustice to Digha residents, he said.
