Efforts of Devendra Fadnavis got success, President approved the bill. The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Act Amendment Bill has been approved by the President of the country, Smt. Draupadi Murmu, thus paving the way for the redevelopment of dangerous and stalled upkar (cess) buildings in the city of Mumbai. The continuous efforts of Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis have been successful for this and he has thanked President Mrs. Draupadi Murmu and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
Now according to this new law, it will be possible to takeover and redevelop the incomplete/stuck Cess (cess) construction projects due to various reasons through MHADA. The redevelopment of over 56 upkar (cess) buildings in the existing Mumbai city was stalled or incomplete. Hence, MHADA can directly take over such buildings and redevelop them. Also, if the Municipal Corporation of Mumbai declares an upkar (cess) building as hazardous, the building owner will first be given an opportunity to redevelop the building. If he does not submit the redevelopment proposal within 6 months, the tenant will be given a second chance. If they also do not submit a proposal for redevelopment within 6 months after both these attempts fail, MHADA can take possession of the buildings and redevelop them. Provides for compensation to the owner of the concerned buildings or the owner of the land at the rate of 15 per cent of the area, whichever is higher. Therefore, the path of redevelopment of cess (cess) buildings which have been stalled for years will now be back on track.

Now that the Bill has got the assent of the President, the redevelopment of cess buildings in Mumbai will get a boost.
