The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has further widened its region by including the entire Palghar Taluka, the remaining region of Vasai Taluka, Alibaug, Pen, Panvel and Khalapur in Raigadh District in the MMRDA’s jurisdiction.
This decision will help the development of these regions in a planned way. “These areas have tremendous development potential and prone to fast unplanned growth if left as it is. This decision will now see these regions not only develop in a planned manner but also sustain the development on its own”, said the Chief Minister. There will be an emphasis on the development of “Growth Centers”, which will work as a catalyst for the development of the region.
This was said by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis during the launch of MMRDA’s new logo and several other launches.
The official statement by MMRDA said, The Authority also approved Detail Project Reports (DPRs) for Gaimukh to Shivaji Chowk (Mira Road) Metro-10 (Rs 4,476/- crore), Wadala to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus Metro-11 (Rs 8,739 crore) and Kalyan-Taloja Metro-12 (Rs 4,132/- crore) corridors. All the three DPRs will now be recommended to the State Government for approval.
