Regularisation law not weapon to be utilized for illegal construction: Bombay HC

Dated on: Saturday 1st April 2023

The Bombay High Court ruled that the legal mechanism for regularisation "cannot be a weapon to be utilised by the petitioner in every case of rank unlawful building." The HC turned down a hotelier's request for an injunction to stop a civic organisation from tearing down the unlawful buildings and provide time to file a regularisation application. The petitioner, Saqib Khan, agreed to dismantle the unauthorised commercial structure himself in four weeks after the High Court rejected the argument in the morning session on March 15 and allowed for civic action.
