MUMBAI: The BMC issued a new notice to actor Sonu Sood for failing to restore his six-storey building from a hotel back to a residential building. In July the BMC had asked Sood to convert his Juhu hotel back into a residential building and remove any unauthorised construction that has been carried out in the building.

Sood had told the BMC in July that he would on his own restore the building. However, a new BMC notice issued by the K-West ward last month said that Sood had not yet restored the building. “You have stated in your letter….that you discontinued the activity of lodging/boarding in the existing 1st to 6th floors of the building and it shall be used for residential purposes as per sanctioned plan. Also you have mentioned that necessary work for addition/alteration/restoration is under progress …this office has inspected the site on 20.10.2021 and it is observed that you have not yet restored the work as per approved plan,” the BMC notice reads.

When contacted Sood however said that he had already converted the Shakti Sagar building on Juhu’s AB Nair Road into a residential structure from a hotel. “We have already carried out the restoration. We have submitted the details to the BMC and the documentation process is underway. I am not carrying out any unauthorised activity and it will remain a residential structure as per the approved plan,” Sood told TOI.

Activist Ganesh Kusmulu who had filed a complaint with the Lokayukta against Sood said that the police must register an FIR against Sood. “The restoration has not taken place. The hotel has been converted into a girls hostel now. This also amounts to change of use. The BMC is not carrying out demolition despite the Lokayukta’s order. The BMC is only issuing notices and delaying the demolition action,” Kusumulu said.

Sood had allegedly converted the building into a hotel without necessary permission from the BMC. Earlier this year Sood, after getting a rap from the Bombay High Court (HC) and withdrawing his petition before the Supreme Court, Sood had agreed to restore the building from an unauthorised hotel back into a residential premises.

The BMC gave Sood to restore the structure as per the approved plan within seven days failing which action would be taken without further intimation, the notice said.
