HC Directs BMC To Clear Its Stand

The Bombay high court on Tuesday directed the BMC to clear its stand on a petition filed by the Wadia Trust seeking a direction to the civic body to pay a compensation of `430 crore after its land was merged in the Mithi river widening project in 2006. A division bench of Justices S.C. Dharmadhikari and Gautam Patel asked the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to spell out its stand in two weeks. Wadia Trust had approached the high court last year seeking compensation of `430 crore after their land admeasuring over 11,000 square metres was merged in the Mithi river-widening project undertaken by the corporation after the July 26, 2005 deluge. “Since July 2006, the petitioner has been sending letters to the civic body seeking compensation. On January 1, 2008 the corporation sent a letter stating that a policy regarding compensation in lieu of land acquired for the river-widening project is being finalised. However, till date nothing has been done,” the petition states.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
