Vacate flats by May 31, Supreme Court tells Campa Cola residents

New Delhi, Nov 19 : The Supreme Court Tuesday set a May 31, 2014 deadline for owners of 96 unauthorised flats in the Mumbai-based Campa Cola society to vacate their homes.

The apex court order by a bench headed by Justice G.S. Singhvi came after Attorney General G.E. Vahanvati informed the court that no specific proposal can be given to find an alternate solution.

In course of the last hearing, the court had asked Attorney General Vahanvati to submit a report in consultation with the affected flat owners on how to deal with the situation.

Taking suo motu cognizance of a newspaper report, the Supreme Court suspended till further orders the demolition of the illegal flats in the Campa Cola Society.

This happened soon after the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) bulldozers, acting on another order of another apex court bench, moved in to pull down the flats.

The court said the affected flat owners would give an undertaking within six weeks from Tuesday stating they would vacate their flats by May 31 next year.

The apex court added that the BMC would be free to proceed with against those who do not file the undertaking to comply with the May 31 deadline.

The apex court earlier this year said that these flats have to be pulled down because of violation by the builders. The flats were built three decades ago.
