Ahead of assembly polls in the Maharashtra, the government has relaxed certain norms on plots allotted on lease by the state-run City and Industrial Development Corporation of Maharashtra Ltd (CIDCO) in Navi Mumbai.
As per a proposal approved by the urban development (UD) department August 11, the government has decided to do away with the condition of terminating lease agreements of leasehold plots, where construction for the purpose of allotment, has not commenced within four years of allotment. Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan heads the UD.
Instead, the department has permitted CIDCO to prescribe a maximum period of extension for completion construction for different category of plots. Only if and when the lease holder fails to take up construction work within the maximum extended period would it be lawful for CIDCO to terminate the lease.

Further, in a bid to regularise breaches, the government has decided to waive off the requirement for CIDCO to obtain previous approval from the state government for relaxing any or all regulations in a “special case or cases.” The new proposal implies that even a post facto approval would now be valid.
The government has approved amendments in The Navi Mumbai Disposal of Land (Amendments) Regulations, 2008, for allowing the changes.
CIDCO had earlier passed a resolution to this effect, which was forwarded for approval to the state. Meanwhile, the state, following a legal opinion, has instructed CIDCO that the new norms would also be applicable for cases where extension had been granted under the erstwhile New Bombay Disposal of Land Regulations, 1975. Senior CIDCO officials, however, said the move could lead to various complications. But following the UD instruction, the CIDCO is working on a revised policy for land allotments and extensions, which is likely to be brought before its managing board on August 19.
