MUMBAI: The state government decided to shift the charity commissioner’s office to another place as the building housing the office is declared dilapidated.
The state law and judiciary department has issued government resolution (GR) stating the state has been permitted to shift to a new 25,500 sq ft office in Worli on the Rs 51 lakh rent on a monthly basis for the next three years.
The new office will be on Dr Annie Besant Road in Worli. The Bombay high court had last August sought names of the alternate location for the Charity commissioner’s office. The order had come in a PIL filed by a city lawyer Khushru Zaiwala,74, who highlighted the risk of catching fire at the present office of charity commissioner building in Worli. The PIL said the structural report had even termed the building “dilapidated’.’
