Aamir Khan faces Bandra familys complaint about use of force

Even though millions all over are very happy to see Aamir Khan fighting against the society and its evil norms or unjust laws through his show 'Satyamev Jayate' (SMJ), there are a couple of people who are not happy with the actor.

They go by the name of Dr Pamela de Sa (87 years) and her daughter Dr. Geneve de Sa (50 years), who have now alleged that the managing committee of their housing society in Pali Hill is not only misleading many homeowners, but also pressuring them to sell 60 percent of their house area to Aamir so that he can build a bungalow for himself. The mother-daughter duo has now written a complaint to the deputy registrar of co-operative societies regarding the same. While Pamela de Sa owns two flats in Marina building, her daughter Geneve de Sa owns two garages in Bella Vista building, all of which are based in Bandra. Meanwhile, Aamir owns two flats in Marina and one in Bella Vista.

Speaking about this, Aamir's spokesperson said that he (Aamir) had sent an offer to his society after the society requested him to make one. Adding further, the spokesperson stated, after the society's assessment of the offers received, the members will decide on how to proceed. Aamir, who had offered to buy 20,000 sq ft of the 36,207 sq ft (3,364 sq m) property at the rate of Rs 70,000 per sq ft of carpet area, had sent an offer letter on December 28, 2011, stating that 'of the caveats/conditions in the offer is that minimum carpet area floor space index (FSI) of 20,000 square feet and proportionate 1:1 land area of the society should ultimately belong to me for this deal to go through'. And for those members, who were not interested in selling their premises, Aamir had even offered to build a separate building on the rest of the plot.

As per the meeting which was held in the society on December 22 last year, while 18 of the society's 23 members voted in favour of the redevelopment scheme, five of them voted against it. That's why Geneve de Sa complained that such kind of voting in the physical absence of the members is absolute violation of the redevelopment rules. To which, the society's spokesperson Sabloak said that the voting had been done in a fair manner and the entire process was recorded on video camera.

Meanwhile, S M Patil (Dy. Registrar of Co-operative Housing Societies) said even though he had not gone through the complaint in detail, from the face of it, it appeared that the proposal failed to qualify as 'redevelopment'.
