Ambani’s land deal ‘illegal’

Mumbai, July 3
The Maharashtra government today termed as “illegal” a land deal by Reliance Industries chief Mukesh Ambani’s group for a posh mansion now under construction in the plush Malabar Hill area of south Mumbai.

A notification issued by the revenue and forest department has directed the state wakf board to “take back possession” of five wakf board properties, including the 4,532 sq metre land where Ambani is building the 27-floor skyscraper.

“An inquiry into the land transfer deal has found truth in allegations that the transfer was illegal,” according to the communication signed by deputy secretary, revenue and forest, Avinash Hazare.

The government asked the board to proceed as per the Wakf Act, 1995, in respect of the properties. Board chairman M.A. Aziz has been asked to clarify his position on these deals within 15 days, failing he can be sacked. — PTI
