The MLA from Junnar in Pune district, had sought to know the names of the companies, which have not paid surcharge for delay in plot development to the MMRDA (Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority). In a written reply in the lower house, Fadnavis said: “Construction in the G-block of Bandra-Kurla Complex owned by MMRDA, was not completed by some firms within the (stipulated) four-year period.
