Compliance Cases

Item No.1 (Originally considered in the 19th meeting held in November 2009)
Project proponent: Shree Khidkaleshwar Land Developers
Consultant: M/s Ultra-Tech Environmental Consultancy & Laboratory, Thane (W)
Name of the project and location: River Wood Park at Village Sagarli, Taluka & District Thane.
Brief details of the project (as per the proposal):
Total plot area: 1,64,930 sq.m. RG area: 49,389 sq.m. Total built up area as per FSI, based on
revised proposal: 97,698 sq.m (61,311 sq.m. existing and 36,387 sq.m proposed (revised)). Total
construction area: 1,13,038 sq.m. (64,546 sq.m. existing and 48,492 sq.m proposed (revised)).
Existing buildings: 40 (with 1208 tenements). Proposed buildings: 10 (4 with Stilt + Podium + 14
upper floors; 3 with stilt+14 upper floors; 2 with stilt + 7 upper floors; and one with stilt + 3 upper
floors): 658 tenements (revised).
Decision: This is a case which was earlier recommended for rejection, but was referred back by
the Authority for reappraisal based on the assurance of the project proponent to carry out tertiary
level treatment and to utilize the same to the maximum extent. When the matter was considered
in the meeting held in November 2009, the project proponent proposed to construct 39 new
buildings with 2066 flats in addition to the existing buildings. It was pointed out to them that it was
not at all advisable to permit discharge of treated effluent from so many flats to the open Nala.
They had also indicated that TMC had proposed to take up sewerage project in the area; they
were then advised to ascertain from TMC the latest status of the same.
The project proponent has now stated that TMC would take some time to take up the sewerage
project. Instead they have now proposed that:
(i)
The size of the proposed project has been significantly reduced from 39 buildings to 10,
2066 flats to 658 flats, total construction area from 1,68,056 sq.m. to 48,492 sq.m.

(ii)
The excess treated sewage (after meeting the requirements for flushing and gardening)
will not be let out of the project area, but will be used for gardening in the RG area and green
development and horticulture in the balance area of 7.1 hectares.
(iii)
In order to ensure full utilization of the surplus treated effluent (particularly during
monsoon) they will construct two interconnected ponds of 15,150 cubic m. capacity and that the
water in the ponds will be subjected to surface aeration.
Based on the above, the Committee decided to recommend the revised proposal for grant of prior
environmental clearance subject to the project proponent complying with the following:
(i)
Confirming that the proposal does not attract the provision of CRZ guidelines and that the
required buffer zone has been left from the edge of the Nala.
(ii)
Committing to be responsible on long term bassi to ensure full utilization of surplus treated
effluent as explained above, take care of the safety aspects as the ponds are to be located in the
middle of the construction area, indicate the necessary arrangements such as use of pumps etc.
and ensure that storm water does not get mixed up with the treated effluent.

project proponent was requested to furnish clarification in respect of the following points.
Considering that this is an old case, the project proponent may bring compliance to the meeting
to be held on 28th July 2010.
(i)
It was stated by the proponents during presentation that as per the DC rules 25% of area
for RG, amenity and open spaces is to be deducted from plot area and FSI of 1 is to be applied
on the net area. However, the actual FSI calculations deduct only 10% of area for working out
the BUA. This discrepancy may be rectified.
(ii)
It is seen that the water supply for the colony is to be obtained from the Irrigation
Department from the Khadakwasla canal; however, the permission for it is still awaited. This may
be obtained and furnished.
(iii)
The quality of raw water may be ascertained and then the treatment to achieve the
required standards as per CPCB norms be decided. Such details may be furnished.
(iv)

The details of sewage treatment with capacity of each unit may be furnished.

(v)
It is proposed to discharge the excess treated effluent into the drains of Manjari Village
Panchayat. All relevant details of the drains such as capacity, destination to which the drains
take the sewerage etc. may be ascertained and furnished. It may be confirmed that the drains are

(vii)
It was informed that the recharge bore holes will be over 100m in depth to discharge into
the aquifer. This may be confirmed.
(viii) The designs for storm water drainage and rain water harvesting furnished need to be
revised. This may be done and full details on a large scale map submitted. The outfall is not
shown nor the sections of drains. The discharge calculations cannot be on the basis of yearly
total rainfall.
(ix)
From the details of cut and fill quantity it is clear that the work has already been done
without prior EC. This may be explained.

Item No.5 (Originally considered in the 28th meeting held in May 2010)
Project proponent: M/s Shreeniwas Cotton Mills Ltd.
Consultant: M/s Mahabal Enviro Engineers Pvt Ltd., Thane.
Name of the project and location: Residential and commercial development at plot bearing
C.S. Nos. 443, 444, 445(P), 446 and 453 of Lower Parel Division, Senapati Bapat Marg, Mumbai.
Brief details of the project (as per the proposal):
Total plot area: 54,287 sq.m. Net plot area: 53,684 sq.m. FSI construction proposed: 2,07,581
sq.m. Total construction: 7,14,328 sq.m, now reduced to 6,38,847 sq.m, (including 2,34,000
sq.m for Municipal car parking). No.of buildings: (i) Residential: Building -1 : 2B + 5P + S +111
floors (5P subsequently reduced to 4P). Building-2: 2B + 5P + S + 57 floors (5P subsequently
reduced to 4P). Tenant building: S+18. (ii) Commercial: Building -1 : 2B + 5P + 36 floors (5P later
reduced to 4P). Building - 2: 2B + L + 3P + 13 floors. (iii) Muncipal Car Park: 3B + G + 18 floors.
Total number of residential flats: 993. Required parking as per municipal norms: 3,228. Parking
proposed: 3,786 (subsequently reduced to 3,228).
Decision: After the last meeting certain observations were communicated to the project
proponent. One point was that according to the proposal, the total construction (including the
municipal car parking), was more than 13.3 times the net plot area and the non-FSI construction
was as high as 244% of the FSI construction. It was suggested to reduce these significantly; it
was also pointed out that the four podia proposed were very high (they had already reduced it
from five). The project proponent has now reported that the total construction area proposed now
6,38,847 sq.m (including the Municipal parking) is less than 12 times the net plot area. The total
non-FSI area now including Municipal car parking has been reduced to 208% of FSI area and
excluding Municipal car parking is around 95% as against 131% proposed earlier. Regarding the
number of podia, they have stated that since they are keeping two to three acres of space open, it
is not possible to reduce it further, over and above the reduction already made from 5 to 4.
Considering the above and considering that other points raised have been by and large complied
with, it was decided to recommend the proposal for grant of prior environmental clearance,
subject to the project proponent obtaining the clearances of the high rise building committee and
the Air Port Authority and submitting copies of the same.

Item No.8
Project proponent: M/s DB Group - DB Realty Ltd.
Consultant: Mahabal Enviro Engineers Pvt Ltd.
Name of the project and location: Construction of residential building Orchid Central,
rehabilitaon building and MCGM parking lot on plot no. 1573 at Byculla Division E Ward (known
as Arab Jamal Compound).
Brief details of the project (as per the proposal):
Plot area: 6,186 sq.m. Built up area (FSI) 25,820 sq.m. (6,805 sq.m for rehabilitation and
MHADA residential building and 19,015 sq.m. for sale residential building). Non-FSI construction:
58,372 sq.m (including 21,164 sq.m for the total podium area for the sale building and 16,444
sq.m for the MCGM parking lot). Total construction area of the project: 84,193 sq.m. Details of
buildings: MCGM parking: Gr+8 podia in the sale building to accommodate 146 car parkings.
Sale building: B+9 to 19 podia + St + 62 floors to accommodate 164 tenements. Rehabilitation

14

building: Gr + 16 floors G+first 7 floors to accommodate 80 commercial tenements and 8 to 16


floors to accommodate 76 tenements.
Decision:
The following observations are communicated to the project proponent for
compliance:
(i)
The actual calculation of additional FSI available on account of providing municipal
parking and the resulting cap on FSI may be furnished in accordance with the provisions of the
annexure to the GR relating to the Municipal Parking Scheme, based on the location of the plot.
(i)
The proposed total construction is almost 14 times the plot size and needs to be reduced
significantly. The proposed non-FSI construction (including MCGM parking) is over 225% of the
FSI construction; excluding MCGM parking, it is still very high at over 160%. This has to be
reduced. The proposal to have 19 podia (of which 11 are supposed to be for the use of the sale
component) is certainly unacceptable. It will not be possible to consider the proposal unless
substantial modifications are made in these.
(ii)
The number of parking spaces required to be provided may be worked out as per the
approved norms and indicated with the relevant calculations. In any case, the use of 21,164 sq.m
on the 11 podia for providing parking for 164 sale tenements is extremely high, considering that
the average area to be utilized for this purpose per parking space should be around 25 to 30
sq.m. (taking into account driveways and other related aspects). Optimal utilization of the parking
space will help reduce the number of podia substantially as mentioned at (i) above.
(iii)
The use of space in the proposed MCGM parking is also extremely non-optimal. A total
area of 16,444 sq.m. is supposed to accommodate only 146 cars. This needs to be looked into
seriously.
(iv)
Detailed schemes for rainwater harvesting and storm water drainage may be worked out
and indicated.
(v)

A detailed note on fire fighting may be furnished.

(vi)
A note on EMP may be furnished with special emphasis on the maintenance of the
amenities for the rehabilitation component.

Item No.8a
Project proponent: M/s SMS Waluj CETP Pvt Ltd.
Consultant: M/s SMS Envocare Ltd., Pune.
Name of the project and location: Setting up common effluent treatment plant (CETP) by
Industrial Association of Waluj Industrial Estate, Aurangabad in association with Maharashtra
Industrial Deveopment Corporation (MIDC).

Total area of MIDC, Waluj: 1563 hectares. Approximate no. of industrial units: 1500. Main types
of industries: engineering, chemical, bulk drugs, breweries and pharmaceuticals. Capacity of
CETP: 10 MLD. Total area of the plot: 1,33,650 sq.m. Built up area: 7,768 sq.m. Proposed

15

disposal of effluent and sludge: treated liquid effluent to be disposed at designated point
approved by MPCB and dried sludge to be sent to Ranjangaon for secured land filling.
Decision: The project proponent is requested to act on the following suggestions and/or furnish
clarifications:
(i)
The type of treatments provided at sources before the effluent is received in the CETP
and the broad quality of the effluent received may be indicated.
(ii)
The quality which will be achieved after treatment at CETP may be indicated in clear
terms.
(iii)
The monitoring mechanism to ensure certain minimum quality of effluent generated by the
units may be indicated.
(iv)
The extent to which treated (at CETP) effluent can be reused for purposes such as
cooling, gardening etc may be indicated, stating the expected quantity which can be so used.
(v)
It is proposed to release the treated effluent to a stream which will join a river. It is very
important to take effective steps to minimize the pollution of the stream and river. For this
purpose, the project proponent should seriously consider holding the treated effluent for a few
days in interconnected ponds so as to improve the natural process of clarification.

Item No.8b
Project proponent: M/s Daroda-Jog & Associates
Consultant: M/s Ultra Tech Environmental Consultancy and Laboratory, Thane (W)
Name of the project and location: Residential project Green Land County at Village Narhe,

Compliance case
Item No.8c (Originally considered in the 29th meeting held in June 2010)
Project proponent:
Properties Ltd.)

M/s Nikunj Developers (holding power of attorney of M/s Videocon

16

Consultant: M/s Aditya Environmental Services Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai


Name of the project and location: Proposed Veena Saaz at Kandivali, Mumbai
Brief details of the project (as per the proposal):
Plot area: 17,304 sq.m. Gross construction area (without TDR): 19,993 sq.m. (of which 14,831
sq.m under FSI). Gross construction area with TDR: 28,247 sq.m. (of which 17,086 sq.m under
FSI). Break up of additional gross construction area: Building no.5: 739 sq.m. Building no. 6:
3,108 sq.m. and Parking Building: 4407 sq.m. Parking required as per MCGM norms: 186. Total
parking proposed: 271.
Decision: As decided in the meeting held on 18th June 2010, the Committee carried out a visit to
the plot on 30th June, 2010. The representative of M/s Nikunj Developers (holding power of
attorney of M/s Videocon Properties Ltd.) and representatives of the complainants from buildings
1 and 2 were present. A round of the campus was also taken by the Committee.
It was found that the entire plot belonged to M/s Videocon Properties Ltd. who constructed towers
A and B (each of 24 stories) earlier. These towers, each with about 90 flats, are occupied since
last 3-4 years and a society of residents exists on each tower. While only about 5 or 6 cars are
accommodated in the ground floor stilts of each tower, about 150 cars belonging to the residents
are parked in the open. The sewage from these two towers is let into a septic tank on the N-W
corner of the plot. The effluent from the septic tank is discharged into a Nala on the northern side
of the plot. No standby DG set has been provided to the tower A, though one has been provided
to tower B for emergency operation of lifts, fire pumps etc. Very few trees exist on the plot. A
small garden of area less than 1000 sq.m is seen on the entrance and on the eastern portion. M/s
Nikunj Developers, as PA holder of M/s Videocon Properties Ltd., constructed two additional
towers numbers 5 and 6. Building no. 5 (stilt + 15 stories) is nearly complete and bulding no. 6
(stilt + 9 stories) is also nearing completion. M/s Nikunj Developers, as PA holder of M/s
Videocon Properties Ltd., have proposed construction of a separate 4-storied building for parking
of vehicles and a club with a swimming pool.
Based on the observations during the site visit and other relevant issues, the project proponent is
requested to comply with the following:
(i)
It is understood that there are some cases in the courts of law against M/s Videocon
Properties Ltd. related to this plot. Details of these court cases along with their present status
may be indicated.
(ii)
The layout plan shown on site was incorrect and incomplete as the dimensions of
buildings shown on the plan do not tally with dimensions on site; the septic tank, water tank,
pump house, trees etc. and all water supply and drainage services are not shown. A correct
layout plan may, therefore, be prepared by detailed ground surveys showing existing and
proposed buildings and submitted.
(iii)
The provision of open areas and RG areas need to be shown along with dimensioned
network of internal roads, fire tender movement etc.
(iv)
The total parking required and the proposals for parking provisions be detailed on a layout
plan. The parking proposed for towers A and B may be separately shown.
(v)
The representative of M/s Nikunj Developers promised on site to provide a common STP
for the entire plot including the sewage from towers A and B and to recirculate the treated effluent
to all buildings (including towers A and B) in the interest of water conservation. Details in this

17

regard may be worked out and furnished. The present method of discharging the effluent into the
Nala is not at all acceptable, as it is positively hazardous to environment in a thickly populated
locality where the plot is located.
(vi)
Consent of the societies of towers A and B need to be obtained for the expansion project
and submitted.
(vii)
It is seen that certain essential amenities and safety features for the residents of the
towers A and B have not been provided, though these buildings were completed and occupied
since 2003. These may be provided without any further delay.
(viii) It was stated during the visit that certain DC provisions were relaxed by MCGM in respect
of the proposed development. The details of the same may be furnished.
(ix)
It was represented that there was severe shortage of water even for towers A and B,
necessitating purchase of water from tankers. Some borewells are also dug on the site. Under
these circumstances proposals to meet the additional demand of water for the proposed
expansion need to be furnished. Data on yield from bores, the quality of water, required
treatment and permission from GSDA along with water balance statement may be furnished.
(x)
Arrangements for storm water drainage, energy conservation, landscaping etc. need to be
detailed.
(xi)

Statement of purchase of TDR needs to be submitted with full area statements.

(xii)

EMP for the entire project is required with full details.

(xiii) It is found that nearly the entire area in front of the towers A and B is paved and a number
of cars are parked in the area. Most of this area is proposed as RG area in the new layout
submitted to the Committee. RG area, meant for recreation, has to have trees, gardens, lawns,
play area for children etc. Car parking is not to be allowed in the RG areas. As a result, paving
already done will have to be removed. Clear proposals in this regard may be submitted.
(xiv) The ownership and management of the parking building and the club house will have to
be in accordance with the provisions in the DC rules no. 23 of 1991. Accordingly, the ownership
will vest on all the resident owners on the plot and suitable provision will have to be made in the
conveyance deed.
(xv)
In building nos. 5 and 6, use of glass is found to be unduly excessive, such as use of
glass for construction of parapets of galleries. Since these galleries are fully accessible from the
respective flats, safety of the dwellers, particularly of children, may be endangered through
accidental breakage of the glass parapets. Preventive measures in this respect need to be
indicated.

Other cases
The case at s.no. 6 (M/s Kutchi Sarvodayanagar) will be taken up later as requested by the
project proponent.

meeting).
Project proponent: M/s Axay Raj Build Well Pvt Ltd.
Consultant: M/s Enviro Analysts & Engineers Pvt Ltd, Borivali (E), Mumbai.
Name of the project and location:
Andheri (W), Mumbai.

Redevelopment of Ashtavinayak CHS Ltd, DN Nagar,

Brief details of the project (as per the proposal):


Plot area: 8,392 sq.m. Built-up area (FSI): 24,688 sq.m. Total construction: 64,477 sq.m. No. of
buildings: six
Decision: As decided in the 29th meeting held on 16th June, the Committee carried out a visit to
the project site on 30th June. After taking a round and discussing with the project proponent, he
was requested to furnish additional information and certain clarifications. He has since furnished
the same. Specifically,
(i)
The project proponent has submitted clear drawings showing the present position of work
to-date and the work yet to be taken up in distinct colours.
(ii)
A statement showing the BUA and total construction as per old proposal and now
modified as per SEACs remarks has been furnished. Accordingly the ground coverage has been
reduced from 62% to 48% and RG area has been increased from 3,500 sq.m to 4,560 sq.m. The
non-FSI area has been reduced from 40,097 sq.m. to 31,662 sq.m and consequently the total
construction area has been reduced form 64,477 sq.m to 56,041 sq.m.
(iii)
On both sides of the proposed building, there are public roads and the shops on the
ground floor face them. The project proponent has promised to ensure that entry and exit to
shoppers cars would be controlled through defined gates for entry and exit so that no traffic
hazards will be created on main road by thus restricting free access along the building.

22

(iv)

Steel reinforcement bars will be provided with anticorrosive treatment for durability.

(v)
Detailed plans for RG areas on ground and on terrace on top of the commercial area have
been submitted with the number of trees to be planted.
In view of these changes and commitments, it was decided to recommend the proposal for grant
of prior environmental clearance.

Item No.14b (Considered in the 17th meeting and recommended for grant of EC)
Project proponent: M/s Natural Sugar & Allied Industries Ltd.
Name of the project and location: Expansion of the sugar plant from 2500 TCD to 5000 TCD
and expansion of the cogeneration power plant from 9 MW to 22 MW.
Decision: The above case was considered in the 17th meeting and it was decided to recommend
the proposal for grant of prior EC. The matter was considered by SEIAA in its 22nd meeting, when
the Authority decided to refer the case back to SEAC to check up as to why the public hearing
was not asked for.
The matter was considered by the Committee. It is noticed that though the combined proposal of
the project proponent was for expansion of the sugar plant from 2500 TCD to 5000 TCD and
expansion of the cogeneration power plant from 9 MW to 22 MW, the first part is really exempt
from the requirement of EC (since the capacity does not exceed 5000 TCD). As far as the
second component, namely expansion of the cogeneration power plant from 9 MW to 22 MW, is
concerned, the Committee decided to categorise the project as B(2), particularly because the fuel
to be used was bagasse. (Of course, the category B(2) was not mentioned in the minutes as in
other cases. The Committee will, from the next meeting onwards, show the category so as to
avoid such confusion). It was not, therefore, felt necessary to ask for public hearing. (Incidentally,
a public hearing was conducted earlier by the project proponent while establishing the distillery in
their premises).

Other cases
The cases at s.nos. 13, 15, 16 and 17 (of M/s Markans Pharma Ltd., Adhiraj Construction Pvt.
Ltd., Rohinton Mehta Constructions and Sri Krishna Pharmaceuticals Ltd.) will be taken up in
subsequent meetings as requested by the project proponents.
