SC stays demolition of Campa Cola compound

Residents were seen cheering and hugging each other as soon as the news of the stay order came in.  A resident told a TV channel that she would celebrate the day like Diwali.

The SC gave the residents seven months to vacate the illegal flats in the compound as there was no relocation plan in place. According to reports, the SC took a suo motu cognisance of the standoff at the compound and ordered the BMC to delay the demolition till 31 May, 2014. Later in the day, the apex court bench said the next hearing would be held on 19 November.

The Supreme Court bench said that it was badly disturbed by the developments that took place at Campa Cola complex premises in Mumbai. The bench also directed the attorney general to submit specific proposal for a permanent solution to this problem and asked him to reply before 19 November. It questioned the BMC for failing to take action against erroneous builders, who were actually responsible for the situation.
