BMC serves Kangana Ranaut a notice under section 354/ A of Municipal Corporation Act after inspection

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has served actress Kangana Ranaut with a ‘stop work’ notice, a day after the team was spotted at her office – Manikarnika Films – to inspect the space.

Under section 354/A of the of Municipal Corporation Act, members of the BMC were spotted pasting a three-page notice on the actress’ office gate.

According to Kangana, the BMC “stuck a notice to stop leakage work that is going on in the office.”

These developments come after the Bollywood actress on Monday took to her Twitter handle to share videos of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials at her office premises and claimed that they may demolish the property. “I have all the papers, BMC permissions.. nothing has been done illegal in my property, BMC should send a structure plan to show the illegal construction with a notice, today they raided my place and without any notice tomorrow they demolishing entire structure,” Kangana claimed in her tweet.

Contrary to allegations doing the rounds, the civic body said the visit by its officals was part of a “regular exercise” undertaken to keep a tab on illegal constructions in suburban Bandra where her office is located.

Parag Masurkar, deputy municipal commissioner, confirmed that a team of officials inspected Ranaut’s office set up in a row house located in the upmarket Pali Hill area of Bandra.

He said the visit was a part of regular exercise to keep a tab on illegal constructions and the team also inspected some other row houses in the area.

Masurkar said as per their records it (Ranaut’s office) was residential property, and they wanted to confirm if any changes have been made in the structure.

According to BMC sources, the team is likely to submit a report within a couple of days after which further course of action will be decided.
