The notice, if issued, will come a day after the Supreme Court dismissed a fresh plea against the demolition of the compound.

As of now, the Campa Cola residents are in the process of packing, shifting and moving out. However, some of the residents have refused to pack or even think about moving out of the compound until the BMC takes final action. They are still hoping that some legal solution might be found to the imbroglio, reported media.

The Campa Cola Residents Association had filed a new petition to stop the demolition on the grounds that BMC be allowed to regularise the 35 illegal floors across seven buildings in the Worli society.

The BMC has plans to start the process of demolition. It had already prepared a report of all the steps it had taken earlier which it said the residents had successfully thwarted so far.

The builders were originally allowed to build up to five floors but what came up included two towers of 17 and 20 floors each and three buildings of six floors each and two of seven floors.
