The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) defended the demolition notice it issued to comedian Kapil Sharma before the Bombay High Court stating that he “went beyond the approved plan of his flat and made unauthorised alterations and deserves no relief.” The BMC had directed demolition of ‘illegal’ portions of his residence in Goregaon and issued a notice in this regard in April.

In an affidavit filed by the civic body, it stated that in the notice it issued in April, it had granted a chance to Sharma to “remove the unauthorised work carried out contrary to the corporation’s full occupation certificate. “Sharma neither filed a reply, nor submitted any papers to prove that the alterations made in his 9th floor flat was authorised,” the corporation stated.

The affidavit was filed in response to earlier court orders. The High Court had earlier granted interim relief to Sharma and actor Irrfan Khan, and to a third resident Gurdeep Narang, both of whom also reside in the same building as Sharma.

The court is hearing petitions filed by Sharma, Khan, Narang, and the developer of the said building challenging the BMC notice, informing them that it had decided to demolish “illegal portions” of their flats and other areas of the building.
