BMC Chief Alleges SRA Exceeding Its Authority in Granting Development Permissions

Bhushan Gagrani, the head of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), has accused the Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) of overstepping its jurisdiction as the planning authority. In a letter sent this month, Gagrani claims that the SRA is issuing development permissions under regulations 33(12)B and 33(19), which are not covered by the Slum Act.

These permissions are being granted with relaxations similar to Regulation 33(10)(6) of the Development Control Promotion Regulation (DCPR) 2034, either independently or in conjunction with other regulations.
