Mutation of one of the 2 contiguous plots pending

This newspaper had reported how no mutation has been carried out by the Defence Estates Office (DEO) over the past four years. The case of Pesi Anklesaria, a Holder of Occupancy Rights (HOR) of GLR survey no-226, which is one of the two plots that had been earlier earmarked for the former President's bungalow, is no different.

In 2006, Anklesaria bought occupancy rights from the executor of the will of the original owner Rhoda Khambata. "The mutation of the property has been pending since 2006. One fine morning, we received a resumption notice from the DEO," said Anklesaria. The legal battle on one of the plots ó General Land Register (GLR) survey no 226 ó is still on and the Army's decision to create an institute at the location might mean that Anklesaria may have to let go his claim. "Our stand is clear. We still want the possession of property and will fight it out in court," Anklesaria said.
