While the redevelopment project's of the common man are facing inconvenience created by the heritage committee, the government does not feel the need to take the mandatory clearance from the heritage committee for his Mantryala makeover project. This was revealed in a reply to the query filed by Anil Galgali.
Anil Galgali had filed a query Under RTI at The Mumbai Heritage Conservation Committee (MHCC) seeking information about Mantryala Makeover on 30 November 2013. Galgali sought to know whether Mantryala Makeover project, New under construction building and new stairway elevention on the front side has been given clearance from the MHCC. MHCC's Public Information Officer and MCGM Deputy Architectural Scientist confirm that No NOC have been issued in the case. Galgali also sought to know whether Mantryala Building comes under the category of Heritage and if yes when was the declared heritage structure. In a reply it was informed that Mantralaya structure falls under category Grade IIB heritage structure and same has been published in the list dated 31July 2012. Mantralaya, a Grade IIB heritage structure, has seven floors, the top four of which had been ravaged by the June 21 inferno.
In a letter written to the Chief Minister Prithiviraj Chavan Galgali highlighted that many redevelopment project's in the city have been stalled due to absence of NOC from the heritage committee and also non clarity on the various structure published in the list. On the other side government itself igoneres the heritage committee and goes about the Makeover plan's without seeking NOC. Galgali also implored the CM to follow his own rule and regulations.
