A survey by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) found that 60 out of 62 hoardings installed in its properties do not have the state-run body's ‘no objection certificate' (NOC).

In a release issued on Friday, MHADA said the survey was conducted on the directives of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. The move comes in view of the May13 hoarding collapse in Ghatkopar, which killed 17 persons and injured more than 70.

In the past two months, MHADA has issued notices to owners of unauthorised hoardings demanding their removal and also warned that non-compliance will lead to enforced dismantling of these structures with the help of the BMC, the release said.

It said these hoardings were installed with nod from the BMC but lacked MHADA's approval.
