The Mumbai municipal corporation has included 29 church properties in its new heritage list.
The properties include the Wilson College Gymkhana and YMCA at Agripada.
"Trustees of many churches have colluded with developers and want to dispose off church properties. It is good news that several churches are part of the proposed heritage list," said activist Cyril Dara.
Reverend Ratnami, a priest at Taylor Memorial Methodist Church at Clair Road, Byculla, which is also in the proposed heritage list said redevelopment is another name to grab church property.
“I have seen churches losing their sanctity because of redevelopment. Some churches, after development, look monstrously big but lack the sanctity," he said.
Father David Tayde of Seventh Day Adventist Church at Mumbai Central said he was not aware if his church had been put in the heritage list, but wanted it to be declared a heritage property nonetheless.
The 107-year-old Hume Memorial Congregation Church at Nagpada is also in the proposed heritage list.
"It is good for the church as the church properties will get safeguarded," said Father Z M Dhanawade, its priest.
