Recording its concern the Bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and GS Kulkarni remarked, “This has created an alarming situation, to the effect that large number of citizens are homeless and are made to suffer at the hands of such developers.”The Court was hearing a plea moved by Shakil Mohammad and 36 others, tenants of corporation land handed over to a developer in 2015 for the construction of a building. The building that originally stood in the area was demolished to make way for the new one, the Chief Justice’s Order narrates. Alarmed that that construction on the proposed building progressed only to the plinth level despite the passage of five years, the Bench expressed concern that the petitioners were without a roof over their heads since then. The Court also noted that “such developers have no wherewithal to undertake a redevelopment project.” Therefore, the Court called upon the Municipal Corporation is to file an affidavit explaining the steps it proposed to take with regard to the project in question.Apart from this, certain broader questions were also posed to the Corporation in respect of its policy on redevelopment. The Court queried whether: the existing policy that allowed tenants of corporation land (“a public largesse”, as the Court stated) to hand over property to developers unable to undertake such a project can be sustained, there was a need to draw up a new policy where only bona fide, genuine and competent developers who could fulfil expected norms and complete the construction were allowed appointment such developers could be appointed “only by the municipal corporation.” Additionally, the Court asked the State Government to consider the question of maintaining a panel of competent developers who could be entrusted with the work of development/re-development.A decision on this count was imperative to ensure that projects were completed in a timebound manner and “there would be certainty of a roof over their heads.””This is also the object of the relevant social legislations”, the Bench added.The Bench therefore directed the State Government and the Municipal Corporation to file affidavits in this respect.Advocate M.A. Khan argued the petitioners. AGP Shamrao B. Gore appeared for the State. Advocates Chandra Naik and Chaitali Gosavi appeared for respondents 5 and 6, while Advocate Oorja Dhond represented MCGM.Click here to download the judgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Video: Ighalo nets wonder goal for United against LASK in UEL

first_imgOdion Ighalo’s fourth goal in a Manchester United shirt was his best yet, with the Nigerian scoring a wonderful goal to put his side 1-0 up away at LASK in the Europa League on Thursday night.In the first half, Bruno Fernandes picked out the Nigerian with a gorgeous outside of the boot pass and Ighalo controlled it superbly, performing two kick-ups to set himself and unleash a thunderous strike that went in off the bar with his weaker left foot. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reaction on the bench perfectly summed up the sensational piece of play from Ighalo.The stunning goal means Ighalo, who signed on loan from Shanghai Shenhua, has scored four goals in three starts against Brugge, Derby County and now LASK. However, the club are set to reimburse all 700 fans who bought tickets through the club. They will refund £350 for their travel, accommodation, in addition to tickets purchased, to the total cost of £245,000 to the club.A text from the club to supporters read: “We appreciate the lengths to which supporters go to follow the team wherever we are playing in Europe. We understand that, for many fans, the cost of travel and accommodation for the LASK game will have been non-refundable.Odion Ighalo has scored every time he has started for Manchester United and has now scored as many goals for the club as Radamel Falcao did (4). pic.twitter.com/xS7R2don3f— The Peoples Person (@PeoplesPerson_) March 12, 2020Read Also:Europa: Ighalo’s goal inspires Man Utd’s 5-0 demolition of LASK“Given this unique occasion, we have chosen to pay a fixed sum of £350 to all supporters who were due to attend tonight’s game having purchased tickets through the club.“This is in addition to the match ticket refund which has now been processed and should be credited to your account within 3 working days.“The £350 will also be credited to your account within 5 working days and appear as a separate payment.
