According to Draft DP 2034 plan, Greater Mumbai is having only 21.0 sq meters of per capita available developed land. Out of 41,505.71 ha of total planning area, Mumbai have already developed 27,117.95 ha and remaining 14,387.75 ha land is undeveloped. Preparation of the base map using GIS and Quickbird satelite image was the first step in the commencement of the DP 2034.

Only 225 sq ft land is available for per person in Mumbai which is highly populated city in the world. The new DP 2034 is proposing to enhance FSI for utility buildings and structures like schools, hospitals, IT parks, etc including almost 2.5 times FSI for existing residential buildings under redevelopment norms. The increased FSI has to be purchased from Government with a premium. Reservation of plots and dereservation already done by the authorities. It is now only elections which is holding back the announcement of new DP.

The base map was then utilised as a key part of a toolkit in conducting the primary survey for mapping Existing Land Use 2013. Existing land use assessed  through extensive field surveys and using GIS technology is presented in Table below:
