In Mumabi Maharashtra , 40 families of kholi community, who are in the
name of “Kannamwar Nagar Fisherman Welfare Association” are selling fishes from 1958,ie more than 62 years,at kannamwar Nagar fish market. During 1987,the then home minister of Maharshtra Shri V.R.Sherekar helped them to get the said market land in their favour by paying the land cost. So the people of Kannamwar Nahgar paid the land cost to the Government of Maharashtra. Later Bombay Housing and Area Development Board also allotted the said kannamwar Nagar fish market land to the kholi community fisherman of nearly 40 families to their favour under letter no 276,dated 30-06-1987 and since the market is functioning without any trouble.
But the said association of kholi people are not well educated and well informed the condition in their letter for follow up. In order to complete the procedures they approached MHADA and MCGM for the orders of allotment of land in their favour to get the market land. The above said association and members of community approaching the authorities for the past 10 years. But the authorities could not able provide information or orders.
In the absence of over orders, the kannamwar Nagar Fisherman Welfare Association of Kholi people are getting trouble from local authorities, with a threat to relocate the place. In view of the above situation we humbly request the hon’ble Fisheries Minister to intervene in this issue by giving directions to the State Government of Maharashtra and allot the said market land in their favour separately as a plot and help the kholi community to run the fishmarket in peaceful manner as that is the only
way to their livelihood and help them by rendering justice. A petition application also given to the Honble Chief minister and Honble speaker of Maharashtra.
