New Delhi, Nov 2 (IANS) The Maharashtra government report on alleged coastal regulation zone violation by Mumbai’s scam-hit Adarsh housing society is expected by Thursday after which the environment ministry will take a call on it, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said here Tuesday.

“The Maharashtra government is most likely to submit its official report on coastal regulation zone violation by the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society. Any action will be taken after the report,” Ramesh told reporters.

The environment ministry last month said it did not issue any Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) clearance or no-objection certificate (NOC) to the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society in south Mumbai for the construction of a 100-metre tall residential building.

The 31-storey apartment block being constructed in the posh Colaba area of south Mumbai has been hit by allegations of corruption and irregularities, including charges that the flats meant for Kargil heroes and war widows were given to bureaucrats, relatives of politicians and former army and navy chiefs among others.
