Shahrukh Khan asked to pay Rs 2 lakh as fine for demolition of illegal ramp outside Mannat
The making of an illegal ramp near Shah Rukh Khan's house in Mumbai has been the cause of much noise in the past month. The actor had built a ramp for his vanity van near his house, which was the cause of traffic woes for the residents near the place. While notice for its removal and demolition happened last month by the Brihanmumbai Municipality Corporation (BMC), but by law the actor needs to pay the demolition charges to the BMC.

Reportedly, Khan is ready to pay the charges of 2 lakh rupees to the BMC, but had been waiting for the official letter to arrive. The demolition of the ramp took place after BJP MP Poonam Mahajan, who wrote a letter to the BMC telling them that the ramp was creating traffic problems in the area.

As was reported by, the letter stated, "The ramp is known to be used by the bungalow owner to park his private heavy motor vehicle. In view of the safety and convenience of citizens, I request you to undertake demolition of the illegal ramp." However, the BMC had sent a letter to the actor before demolition of the ramp. As per the Mumbai Municipal Corporation (MMC) Act, under Section 489(1) Shahrukh Khan must pay approximately Rs 2 lakh within 7 days of the demolition.

The actor is currently shooting in Nepal. Talking about the incident a senior officer from H-West (Bandra, Khar) informed that a notice has been sent to the actor. Adding to it he also said, ''If he fails to pay the amount within seven days, we will add it to his property tax. The notice has been issued Under Section 489(1) of the MMC Act, which states that if an illegal structure is demolished, the concerned person should pay for it.''
