1) If the buildings are found to be highly dilapidated/dangerous C-1 category, to issue notice to tenants/occupants and provide one weeks time to vacate the said buildings.

2) If the buildings are not vacated within a period of one week, the Corporation may disconnect the essential supplies to the building i.e disconnect gas, electricity and water supply of the building.

3) In spite of the aforesaid, if the tenants/occupants refuse to vacate the building then mild police force may be applied for eviction.

4) After eviction the Corporation can demolish the building.

5) The eviction can be initiated in respect of private/state owned buildings. The Hon’ble Bombay high Court directed the Corporation/MHADA to provide alternative premises to the occupants in case the buildings are owned by Corporation/MHADA.

6) , the high Court directed the Corporation not to issue Commencement Certificates (C.C) in respect of buildings which are under the process of redevelopment and which have been demolished under Section 354 of MMC Act until there is an agreement between the Developer and the tenant/occupant of the premises under which the Developer agrees to provide a permanent accommodation in the newly constructed building or a settlement is reached between the Developer and tenant/occupant in respect of the demolished premises which has been furnished to the Corporation.

The Hon’ble Court also directed the Corporation to prepare a list of such C-1 category buildings and measure the carpet area of the premises situated in the building which will help to provide transparency in the process of redevelopment and prevent the irregularities committed by the Developers against the tenants/occupants in redevelopment of old and dilapidated buildings.

Do not leave the property unless and until there is a written agreement between the builder and the tenants containing necessary terms as regards your rights and developer's obligations including time line of completion of project.

If before doing so you are forced ti leave the premises then go to court and obtain order of injunction. Once restraint order on construction is passed you can see your interests to be protected by the same builder.

Dear Sir,

You may read the judgment

.Bombay High Court

345 vs 36 Vasu K. Shetty on 11 April, 2014

Bench: Anoop V. Mohta

5] The Respondent-Corporation's satisfaction, therefore, though based upon various material and/or information, yet some Respondents/tenants are obstructing and preventing the landlord / owner from developing the property. Their entitlement, even if any, as they sought to be contended being a tenant of the premises, is quite limited. There is no bar under any provision that the owner and/or landlord cannot develop such property.

In such an event, if the builder is pressurizing to vacate and indulge in all such illegal activities, you may first file an injunction suit agaisnt him and seek an ad-interim injunction on the same line to restrain him from doing so till the disposal of main suit.

what is your suggestion

An injunction suit seeking to restrain the builder from illegally evicting you from the premises shall be the better option before you instead of approaching the municipal authorities or any other authority.
