On Friday, the Supreme Court directed the Centre to take possession of the Adarsh apartments, Mumbai. Notices were issued to the stakeholders regarding the same. The issue reached the Supreme Court following the verdict of the Bombay high court wherein the building was to be demolished.

The decision was subsequently challenged by the stakeholders of the Adarsh apartments. The 31-storey building has been a centre of controversies regarding alleged nepotism and misuse of government concessions. Each flat of the building costs approximately ₹8.5 crore. However, availing government concessions, several politicians bought apartments for themselves and their family members at a mere 10% of the actual cost. In addition, the building is said to have been constructed in violation of the coastal regulations.

What was supposed to be a 6-storey building for the Kargil war heroes and widows, turned into a 31-storey building. The SC has assured the Adarsh Co-operative Housing Society that the building and the land will be secured, and not demolished. The bench has asked the Registrar General of the Bombay high court to oversee the handing over of possession to the Centre by August 5, along with an inventory of all documents and records.
