Nagpur civic body to build public utilities in prime land

Nagpur Municipal Corporation has decided to build some public utility service organisations like libraries on 13,400 sq ft land of three plots in the prime locality of the city.

In 1953, NMC had leased the three plots - measuring 2,800 sq ft, 2,900 sq ft and 7,700 sq ft - to run a Muslim library. However, the lessee subsequently changed the usage of the plots and started a food joint (ML Canteen) on the property.

The lessee also discontinued paying the annual rent from 1986, but NMC's estate department did not initiate any action against the occupant.

After a gap of many years, on February 14, 2006, the civic body served a lease agreement cancellation notice. NMC also served a notice asking the occupant to demolish the illegal construction on the said plots. Following this the lessee approached the court challenging NMC's notice.

The NMC has prepared a proposal to construct a commercial complex, a library and a community hall there.
