Mumbai: Disputes between builders, developers and residents are not new in Mumbai. Agitations are still going on in many resident complexes in Mumbai due to non-compliance with the demands of the residents, some of which are pending under the supervision of the Hon’ble Court.  A similar case has been going on for the last several months at the famous Vasant Oasis complex at Andheri East, the developer has decided to make stack parking in the open space where citizens are walking, children are playing cricket and riding bicycles which is not under the plan when buyers purchased flats from developers. Yesterday Citizens from Vasant Oasis specially kids and women marched in the morning carrying black flags to clear the parking lot. Children between the ages of 5 and 12 took part in the morning march; all residents had made Human chain and Thali Bajao protest also. Residents from vasant oasis are following up with the Maharashtra government authorities and the Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to prevent stack parking on the site as they claim there is no permission from BMC for this stack parking. Stack parking is very much dangerous for Kids & senior citizens who all are playing and walking on the podium area. Every Mumbaikar has realized the importance of staying healthy during the last six months of lockdown. In the last few years, many developers have come forward to provide facilities like playgrounds for children, cycle tracks, jogging tracks and meditation and yoga facilities for senior citizens in the residential complex but now developers are encroaching open spaces of the societies which are more harmful & risky.
