The BMC will issue a notice to actor Shah Rukh Khan to demolish the illegal ramp constructed outside his bungalow ‘Mannat’ in Bandra Friday. Municipal Commissioner Sitaram Kunte issued an order on Thursday to this effect, days after MP Poonam Mahajan wrote to him on the illegal ramp, which is causing major inconvenience to the residents.
According to a senior civic official, BMC will issue a notice under Section 299 of the MCGM Act, 1888. Khan will be given seven days to demolish the ramp, which is being used to park his vanity van. “In case of non-compliance, BMC will undertake the demolition,” the official said.
This ramp, said to have been constructed by one bungalow owner, is causing permanent obstruction to people accessing the public road. The ramp is known to be used by the bungalow owner to park his private heavy motor vehicle,” Poonam Mahajan wrote to BMC, in a letter dated January 29. Although Mahajan refrained from mentioning the ownership of the private bungalow, local residents, who have been protesting against the ramp for several years, said it was located outside ‘Mannat’, Khan’s plush residence off Bandstand.
