Contact a local advocate showing such sale deed and lease term of 999 years and he may guide you suitably in this regard finding such loopholes or such clauses that may help you if any.

It will all depend on the terms, conditions and covenants of both the lease deeds, first with the MCGM and second with Canara Bank. Consult a praticing lawyer conversant with property matters.

Is it 1850 or 1950? Who was the grantor - MCGM or Collector, Thane (or Thana)?

lease deed on 1950,MCGM,Mumbai,

P. Venu (Advocate)     14 October 2021

To my knowledge sion was not part of the mumbai Municipal Corporation until 1950. So also, all the leased properties of the Municipal Corporation and its instrumentalities are situated within the Island of Mumbai and not beyond.

I have retrived the lease copy of MCGM,It says that MCGM has given the property to my relative on lease of 999 years and Canara Bank is sub leased,if it so,

then can Canara bank holds any righ to obstruct the developement part ?

please guide

The dispute is with Canara bank, file RTI Application and demand the agreements/deeds on such sublease.

Harish Khanolkar   14 October 2021

exactly sir,I have filed RTI on 6th oct 2021,even the CPIO of the bank is not answering properly,

Now the question arises is if the Bank is owner than why the PR ( property ) card is not updated till now,

Secondly, according to the MCGM ( Lessor ) database the Canara Bank Ltd is purely sub leased ( only for banking purpose - non residential )
