Mumbai, Nov 3: The electricity and water supply to the controversial Adarsh Housing Society have been cut off on Tuesday, Nov 2 evening.

The Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST), which is responsible for supplying electricity from Colaba to Mahim, decided to cut the power supply after Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) revoked the Society's occupancy certificate (OC).

''We had asked the MMRDA to provide us with the status on the OC. On Monday, Nov 1 afternoon, its officials gave us in writing that the OC will be revoked. We dispatched a second showcause notice to society members on Monday evening, asking why power supply should not be disconnected,'' said Om Prakash Gupta, BEST general manager.

Earlier on Tuesday morning, The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has disconnected the water supply to the Adarsh Housing society.
