Comments by Mumbai Laity
Vaccant Office place is thus being sold at the rate of Rs.20,000/- per sq.foot.approx.The building is situated in Dalal Street and office premises are available at the rate of Rs.35,000/- a sq foot .The building cost has not been calculated in the analysis.
If things were transparent why was this deal not advertised in the Examiner?Why are the Catholics not informed through the Examiner which is its official newpaper and the advertisement would have been placed for free?The building is a cessed structure and will be eligible for FSI of 2.5 plus 50% plus 10% for balcony area.
Was something hidden?
You be the best judge.

About The Voice Of Bombay's Catholic Laity

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
