Nagpur: Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that Reliance Industries Ltd has an outstanding surcharge of Rs 1,900 crore towards the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) in a written answer while responding to a question in the Assembly on Tuesday.

Sharad Sonawane, a Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) MLA from Junnar in Pune district, had raised a query in the House during the Question Hour session about companies that have not paid their surcharge for plot development to the MMRDA.

The Asian Age contacted RIL for its response on Mr Fadnavis’ reply to the Assembly via email but received no response at the time of going to press.

In his reply to Mr Sonawale, the chief minister  said, “The construction in the G-block of Bandra Kurla Complex owned by MMRDA was not completed by some firms within four years’ period. Hence the additional surcharge for such delay has not yet been paid by the companies, including RIL.”

“The dues include Rs 441.08 crore for plot number C-66 and Rs 1,538.73 crore for plot number C-64 from RIL alone,” Mr Fadnavis added.

Mr Fadnavis also said that Oriental Bank of Commerce on plot number C-29 and Income Tax department plot number C-41 and C-43 have paid the surcharge, and the construction is going on.
