Minister of State for Commerce & Industry CR Chaudhary in a written reply in the Lok Sabha today said that ministry has received a proposal from the Revenue and Forests Department of Maharashtra Government for transfer of 80.98 acres of salt pan land in village-Mulund, Taluka-Kurla, District-Mumbai Suburban, to Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) for dumping of refuse, solid waste treatment plant and allied processes.

The land requested for transfer is under litigation with regard to ownership issue. The Bombay High Court in an interim order has restrained all parties from creating third party rights on the said land. Further, this land was also approved for transfer to the Ministry of Urban Development (now Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs-MoHUA) in 1986. However, MoHUA is yet to take possession of the said land due to litigations and encroachments.
