Invitation To RTI Activist’s Union Against Builder Mafia & Land Sharks

23 April 2011 4 Comments

To protect & facilitate citizens fighting illegal development & redevelopment, encroachment etc. we are working to form a union of  RTI Activists, aggrieved citizens, lawyers, architects etc. in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). We will hold our fifth meeting on this topic on Tuesday, 26th April, at 5.30 pm. You are cordially invited to participate.

Venue: 1st floor, Bombay Sarvodaya Mandal, Near Nanachowk.

Directions: Alight at Grant Road Railway Station (West) and walk straight through Bhaji Gully towards Tardeo Road. Venue is the first building to your right upon reaching  Tardeo Road.


At the last meeting, many aggrieved citizens narrated their stories, and in the discussions that happened, understood how to take the next steps forward in their battle. If you are fighting for a cause concerning Land & Building in Mumbai-Thane-Navi Mumbai region (MMR), please come and share your experiences.

1.      Email a brief and clear account of your story before Sunday evening (roughly 3-5 paragraphs). This will give us a rough idea of what you want to share with us. Also, we will be able to circulate it among knowledgeable colleagues and ask for their opinions before coming for the meeting.

2.      Come with one or two copies of your story, and also supporting documents. The architects, lawyers, journalists and RTI experts present may prefer to see such documents and understand details before giving their opinion.

3.      We request Professionals like Architects – who know the “Andar ki batein” i.e. inside realities — to come and share their knowledge with all of us. If you have inside knowledge of the workings of Building Industry, Land-grabbing Mafia, MMRDA, CIDCO, MCGM Building Proposal Department, Urban Development Department, Land Revenue Department etc., this is a special invitation to you. Good people must break the conspiracy of silence; it is our continuing silence that is enabling scams and corruption to happen everywhere.
