In a fresh ruling, a Mumbai civil court has observed that actor Kangana Ranaut has violated the sanctioned plan by merging her three flats into one.
The bench of Justice L.S. Chavan stated in the order that the actor, who owns three flats on the fifth floor of a 16-storey building in Khar area, has merged them into one.
It has been noted the Kangana had covered the suck area, duct area, common passage and converted free floor space index (FSI) into habitable area to merge them all.
The court observed that “these are grave violations of the sanctioned plan for which the permission of the competent authority is required”.
The Queen actor’s application that sought direction from the court to halt the Brihanmumbai Mumbai Corporation’s demolition drive, was also rejected.
The court in suburban Dindoshi dismissed an application filed by Ranaut last week, details of which were made available on Thursday.
The BMC had in 2018 issued notice to the actor for “unauthorized constructions” at her Khar flats.
In another notice, the actor was asked to restore the structure to its original position as per the original plan, failing which would result in demolishing the unauthorized portion.
Following this, Ranaut had challenged the demolition order and asked the court to restrain the civil body from carrying out the exercise. The court had then ordered status quo.
Noting that “interference of this court is not required”, the court rejected the actor’s application.
However, the court has given her six weeks’ time to challenge the order in Bombay High Court.
Parts of Kangana Ranaut’s bungalow in Pali Hill area were earlier demolished by the BMC for alleged “unauthorized” construction.
