SRK fined for illegal ramp outside Mannat

MUMBAI: Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan has been fined INRs 1,93,784 by the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation for constructing an illegal ramp outside his bungalow ‘Mannat’ in Bandra, a RTI query revealed here on February 10.

Activist Anil Galgali sought details under RTI on a reinforced cement-concrete ramp constructed outside the actor’s landmark bungalow which was used for parking his vanity van, leading to an outcry early in 2015. Following a campaign, the municipal commissioner initiated action and a notice was slapped on Khan on February 6, 2015.

After the notice period ended, the BMC started the demolition on February 15 of the ramp. And a demand notice of INRs 1,93,785 on the actor as costs towards the razing of the illegal structure, or face prosecution was served.

In order to close the issue, the actor quietly made the payment through a cheque for the entire amount, Galgali said.
