Nashik, Sep 12 (UNI) The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (MSEDCL) has snapped an electricity connection of Ashoka Education Foundation, a project by renowned Ashoka Builders Group, here for its alleged misuse.
The Foundation had secured a temporary electricity connection from MSEDCL for a school building, to be constructed on a plot of land at Gangapur area here. It had applied for one month's connection in July 2006. While applying for the connection, the Foundation had mentioned that it would take all necessary permissions from the authorities within 15 days. However, till date, no documents were filed by the Foundation, sources said here today.
Even after one year, the Foundation had not built any school building on the land. Instead, it set up a project of 'ready mix concrete' on the site. Due to this, MSEDCL cut the connection to the project yesterday, they said.
Meanwhile, the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC), after receiving several complaints against the Group for setting up the concrete project, has also served a notice to the concerned people.
The notice was served by the NMC's Town Planning Department after it found that the said construction was illegal and without any permission as even quarrying was prohibited within the city limits.
The NMC, in its notice, had given 30 days time to the construction company before its ready mix concrete project is demolished.
Following the NMC's action, MSEDCL severed the electricity connection to the unauthorised project.
