A bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Abhay SOka refused to entertain an appeal filed by Kaalkaa Real Estates Pvt Ltd , a Rane family concern , which had applied for regularisation of illegal construction and ordered the unauthorised construction be removed within three months . The order came just a week after Rane faced a setback from the HC which had also imposed a cost of Rs 10 lakh on the company and directed for removal of illegal structure within two weeks .

Taking a stern view of the unauthorised construction , the HC had said ” The proposed retention of unauthorised work , if accepted , will amount to encouragement of the widespread violation of provisions of law and invite wrongdoer to carry out any extent of unauthorised construction in Mumbai without fear of penal action . , ”

The HC verdict came on a petition to direct BMC to consider the second application for regularising the construction . The first application was rejected by BMC on June 3 and upheld by HC on June 23 .

Notices were served by BMC to the Ranes in February – March this year , when MVA was in power , and the first regularisation plea was re jected while Uddhav Thackeray was CM . In June end , the new Shinde Fadnavis government took over . The BMC had in its March 4 notice pointed out several ‘ changes of use ‘ in the basement and on all but the seventh floor of the eight – storey residence .
