Nagpur News: Nagpur MP Vilas Muttemwar’s untiring efforts since years together bore the fruits as the Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, in a significant  announcement, regularized unauthorized layouts in the reserved lands of Nagpur’s ULC, Greenbelt  under Gunthewari Act. A total of 1,26,000 plots of lands would be regularized by the decision of the State Government thus directly benefiting 5,11,000 citizens, the Chief Minister said. He was addressing a press conference at the CM’s official bungalow “Ramgiri” in Civil Lines on August 16 (Friday).

The major share of credit for the regularization of unauthorized layouts under Gunthewari Act goes to Nagpur MP Vilas Muttemwar who strived hard and made the untiring efforts for the cause. A staggering 1192 layouts were inhabited on the reserved lands putting a massive roadblock for development of the areas. Similarly, thousands of land-owners faced enormous difficulties due to lack of basic amenities.

The Chief Minister ordered the issuance of a Notification regularizing the ULC (Urban Land Ceiling) lands as if belonging to the Nagpur Improvement Trust. Accordingly, a 5-member committee under the chairmanship of Town Planning Department’s Director. The regularization process would begin once the Committee carries out inspections of all layouts. The Chief Minister made it clear that the development rate would be doubled while regularizing the constructions in the greenbelt.

The press conference was attended among others by the EGS Minister Nitin Raut, Guardian Minister Shivajirao Moghe, Minister of State for Finance and Energy Rajendra Mulak, and Dr Anees Ahmed.

The private hospitals located in crowded places would be provided 150 per cent more FSI. Similarly, the hospitals located on roads with less than 9 meter width and more would be provided with one and a half and 2 FSI respectively. There was no clear Notification over FSI in the crowded places. Now, it has been cleared by the new Notification. The FSI given to 1000 sqmt plot of land stood at 1.25 and the less than 1000 sqmt plot of land is given .75 FSI. If the construction is carried out over the lands together, the 1.25 FSI would be provided, the Chief Minister said.
