Mumbai: The people living in Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority’s transit camps will be declared legal occupants of the premises, officials said.

The solicitor general of Maharashtra, Ashutosh Kumbhakoni, has informed the state government that they can take a decision about illegal tenants living in the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority’s (Mhada) transit camps.

The transit camps have been set up for people living in dilapidated buildings or residents of such buildings that are undergoing repairs or redevelopment work.

The solicitor general’s advice will help the state government take a decision about intruders living illegally in the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority transit camps.

The Maharashtra Housing and Area De-velopment Authority has submitted its proposal to the state government for approval.

According to the proposal, people living illegally in Maharashtra Housing and Area De-velopment Authority transit camps will get homes under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). To take that decision, Mhada has to legalise the illegal tenants living in the transit camps.

Following the solicitor general’s advice, the state government may clear the proposal in forthcoming Cabinet meetings.
