Premium for open space relaxation can only be 10%: SC

Dated on: Wednesday 23rd August 2023

The Supreme Court has affirmed a 2017 ruling from the Bombay High Court, stating that the premium imposed for inadequate open space can only be 10%, rather than 100%. The court has instructed the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) to subtract the 10% fee and reimburse the remaining amount along with interest within six weeks to Wadhwa Estate and Developer (I) Pvt. Ltd. In 2011, the developer had submitted a proposal to renovate a MHADA building and requested leniency for the shortfall in open space.
