Families have grown, their needs have increased and owners have extended their boundaries. This is true across the city .The matter of allocating increased FSI and regularizing such mistakes is now pending with the urban development department. If all goes well, the row house apartment owners too will be covered under this scheme and will be allotted more FSI. In such a case, we could even reconstruct the houses in future, “he explained.
Assuring the resident of all legal help, Naik offered the services of an experienced advocate to represent the residents in the High Court. In an emotion-packed speech. Naik said, “We are with you at every step. If required, we will even knock Supreme Court doors and get the streets to fight for your justice”.
