Sandeep Yeole, RTI Activist and a social worker, carries around a gigantic bundle of documents that he has acquired from police stations, the slum rehabilitation authority, the collector’s office, the MHADA, the environment Ministry, regarding each societies discrepancies in the project. One such group of documents details that the Letter Of Intent clearly states that the builder must get environment clearance before a commencement certificate, yet both papers show, he has a commencement certificate arriving six days before the clearance. On that, the builder claims that he had the Environmental Clearance in March of that year itself, but the notice reached them late. [1]

ACTIVIST SANDEEP Yeole, who last month displayed a large amount of cash and alleged that it was a bribe paid to him by a real estate developer, said Friday that one of the law enforcement agencies is willing to investigate his complaint against Omkar Realtors and other developers associated with a Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) project in Vikhroli in suburban Mumbai.

Yeole alleges that he was given a bribe of Rs 1 crore by Omkar Realtors & Developers, which is developing the project. He said the bribe was in return for withdrawing his complaints against the developer. “I have been paid Rs 1 crore in cash, while Rs 60 lakh has been utilized towards legal battle fought against the developer, I still have Rs 40 lakh in cash with me and want the authorities to probe the source of the fund,” he said.
