Bombay High Court has imposed a fine of Rs. 10 lakh on a 75-year-old businesswoman for filing a “frivolous litigation” against the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in relation to two plots of land owned by the civic body in Powai and “wasting precious time of the court”.
The Bench Comprising of justices SC Dharmadhikari and BP Colabawalla, last week, directed the businesswoman, Renuka Batlivala, to pay the amount to BMC within four weeks, failing which, the civic body will recover it as arrears of land revenue.
