DNA EXCLUSIVE: Mumbai has to maintain position as commercial engine, says Ajoy Mehta 24.5.2018 DNA: Top News
Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation ( BMC) hopes the Development Plan 2034 & Development Control Rules will help Mumbai maintain its pre-eminence as a commercial engine. In an exclusive interview, city civic chief Ajoy Mehta clears ambiguities and misconceptions about the city's new Development Plan (DP). Will opening of No Development Zone (NDZ) come at the cost of the environment and benefit only builders? That is a misnomer -- NDZ was never a no-development zone. In the 1967 and 1991 DPs, Floor Space Index (FSI) of 0.5 was allowed on NDZ. Of the 13,000 hectares of NDZ in Greater Mumbai, 10,000 hectare is marked as Natural Area (NA). What is left is 3,000 hectare, of which 700 to 800 hectare has slums. Hence we are left with about 2,200 hectare, which we are taking up for development. If the NDZ land, which we call Social Development Zone (SDZ), has to be developed, the owner will have to divide and allot one-third for housing, one-third for open space and one-third for sale. We have marked a huge ...
