Governor signs ordinance regularising Ulhasnagar buildings
January 14, 2006 13:32 IST
Maharashtra Governor S M Krishna Saturday signed an ordinance aimed at regularising illegal buildings in Ulhasnagar township of neighbouring Thane district.
"The governor Saturday morning signed the ordinance and the file has been sent to the Law and Judiciary Department of the state government for further action," a senior Raj Bhavan official told PTI.
The governor had raised some queries in the ordinance when it first came to him last week, but signed it Saturday morning following satisfactory replies to his doubts by the state government, the official said.
Saturday's development comes despite the Bombay high court pulling up the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation and the Vilasrao Deshmukh-led Congress government on Thursday over delay in implementing the court order on demolition of 855 illegal buildings in Ulhasnagar.
