September 10, 2020: On Thursday, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued a show-cause notice to designer Manish Malhotra for ‘unauthorised construction’ at his residential premises.

“Under Section 351(1) of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act, 1888 and as per the Notification dated April 4, 2013, it has been notified that Manish Malhotra has erected/commenced erection of a building/executed/commenced executions of certain work or changed the existing user at premises without permission from the competent authority,” the BMC said in the notice, a copy of which was accessed by ANI.

The BMC has given Manish seven days to respond to the notice to show sufficient cause as to why the said building or work should not be pulled down.
