The BMC is going to take disciplinary action against six ward officers who allowed illegal pandals to come up in their areas during the recent Ganpati festival.Senior advocate Anil Sakhare, appearing for the civic body, informed the Bombay High Court that the Municipal Commissioner has issued directions to the Deputy Municipal Commissioners to issue notices to the concerned officers, mostly in suburban Mumbai, and call for their response on the alleged charges of dereliction of duty. If found guilty, the officers will face action contemplated as per service rules governing them.On the last occasion, the high court was informed that 42 illegal pandals were not demolished. The corporation said it could not carry out the necessary action for lack of police protection.The court, while issuing show cause notice of contempt against the Municipal Commissioner, had observed, “Until some municipal commissioner is sent behind bars, nobody will comply with court’s orders.”A division bench of Justice Abhay Oka and Justice AK Menon has now posted a bunch of petitions for further hearing on December 8.The petitions filed seek proper implementation of noise pollution rules and orders passed by the high court.
