How the Catholic Community of Mumbai has been cheated ?

5000 sq foot club house promised and accordingly rate for selling land to builder fixed by the Charity Commissioner . Status Till today no club house given and further no talk about it.

1,81,000 sq. feet bogus FSI obtained on the basis of affidavits submitted by 6 already rehoused tenants in Marinagar and the church has remained silent. Further 5 tenants who had to be given flats in the towers and are tenants of the Church as per records put up in various offices are still languishing in their old rooms as the flats allotted to them  have been sold. The Church has done nothing and is as silent as a graveyard. As per the  plan the place where their houses presently stand are now gardens.

What has happened to the 14 flats in Gloriossa, Dadar which had to be given to the Church?


Would the Church Authorities have behaved in this way if it ……/would-the-churchauthoritieshavebehav

May 17, 2011 – Are interest free loans without any security only given to builders? … concerned have behaved in the same way if it was their own property?

Why is the Thane Municipal Commission asking for the   two churches of Our Lady of Mercy Pokran, Thane  and a high school there to be demolished before they issue the Transfer of Development Rights Certificate ?

Why is the Church not lodging a police complain regarding the forged letter given to the City Survey Office to transfer the Vakola Property and bearing the forged signature of the Parish Priest?

Why was the builder still being entertained in Mary Dell even though his cheque had bounced? It was only after the Association of Catholics made a noise that things changed.

Why has the saleable building come up and sold in Ave Maria Dadar and the building which had to be given to the Church still not ready despite the fact that both had to come up simultaneosly? Why was no stay taken then?

What has happened to the 11,500 sq feet hall to be given to the Church in Dadar?

What has happened to the terrace above it which had to be given to the Church and having a separate entrance?

The buck stops at the door of Cardinal Oswald Gracias who heads the Mumbai Archdiocese.

The said properties belongs to the Catholic Community of Mumbai and the Catholics have been cheated.

Please stop dealing/selling/alienating  Church properties as documents show that the Catholic Community is being cheated repeatedly.







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.

  1. Mr A m Sodder,
    Please dont whip this dead horse. Just take the issue to its legal conclusion.
    However in case you still wish, you can ask the Diocese estate office for their inputs, very unlikely you will get a reply as this section is another pocket in the same trouser.
    Please dont show any kindness to these people who have taken the community for a ride. While you are working on one part of the issue.I am working on the issue of the accountability of the money received.
    Sad how we have been fooled by our own ‘Dharma Gurus” who we were taught to believe they were Gods people.

    Sad but not surprising, what was Card. Ivan Dias doing during his tenure here in Mumbai. Was it only to gather brownie points to the Holy Father? Card Oswald has no back bone to get this corrected and will never do anything. Its in a mess!
