Thane civic body to probe illegal constructions

The Thane Municipal Corporation is set to initiate a probe against civic officials for allowing illegal constructions to come up in the Majiwada-Manpada ward. The move comes after Thane-based RTI proponent Nainesh Dolas moved an RTI application seeking information regarding unauthorised constructions in the region. Replying to Dolas’s application the civic town planning department said that the plan for the constructions was not cleared by them. Dolas then sought names of those responsible for checking illegal constructions. “I had official information on unauthorised construction and the names and designations of officers who ought to have prevented this.
