Mumbai, Jun 3 (UNI) The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has imposed a fine of Rs 2.3 lakhs on business tycoon Mukesh Ambani for building a helipad atop their Sea Wind building in Cuffe Parade, without acquiring requisite permission from the corporation.
A BMC official told UNI that work on the under-construction helipad at the building, which is half ready, was carried out without permission and the fine has been levied on the basis of the work carried out so far.
Since the work did not have the requisite permission, it will be stopped, he said adding that permission can be given only after a detailed plan is submitted to the corporation and cleared by the relevant authorities.
Municipal Commissioner Jairaj Phatak said the fine has been imposed by the authorities of the Building Proposal department of the corporation as per law.
Since the start of the construction of the helipad, there have been protests and opposition from residents of the neighbouring buildings, who had complained of noise pollution and disturbance.
