Mumbai, Apr 21 (UNI) A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed in the Bombay High Court today, challenging the Maharashtra government's decision to increase the Floor Space Index (FSI) from 1 to 1.33 in the suburbs.
The two petitioners, residents of Tardeo and Kurla, said they were concerned over the likely fallout of the notification, dated April 10, issued by the state government, for increasing the FSI in the suburbs. They cited at least 10 different alleged legal violations in the decision-making process over the FSI hike.
The government has ordered to implement the increase in FSI immediately.
The PIL stated that the government's order, calling for implementation of the increase in FSI immediately, needs to be set aside.
''Notwithstanding the fact that suggestions and objections are contemplated to be called as per the statutory procedure prescribed under Section 37 of the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning Act, 1966, this fundamentally militates against the statutory provisions,'' it added.
