BPP gets SC nod to build on disputed plot
After almost three decades of litigation, the Bombay parsu Punchayet is free to construct at least a hundred flats at Punthaky Baug in Andheri. Last Friday, the Supreme Court cleared the decks for the Punchayat when it dismissed two special leave petitions filed before it that were preventing the trust from providing these houses to Parsis by way of a cross-subsidy scheme.
The Punchayat said it faced the “the long-standing dispute caused by the late Pestonji Dhunjishaw Zilla and after his demise, his legal heirs” and with the SC order, Dinshaw Mehta, its chairperson, said “hopefully it has come to an end”.
