Jairam Ramesh
New Delhi, Nov 12: Another shocking charge against Adarsh housing raised as Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh on Nov 12 claimed that the Adarsh did not have any permission to build the housing in Mumbai's Colaba area and the building may be demolished soon.

Bringing an end to all speculations, Jairam Ramesh also issued a show cause notice to Mumbai's tainted Adarsh housing on Nov 12.

According the notice, the Adarsh society has to give a written reply to the ministry as why the 31-floor structure "Adarsh" should not be removed forthwith under section five of the Environment (Protection) Act 1986.

The ministry gave only two weeks time to the society to reply.

The Adarsh building was originally meant to be a six-storey structure of house for the Kargil war heroes and widows, but was converted into a 31-storey building.
