Mumbai Development Plan 2014-2034

To ensure that working ways of development in Mumbai stay on course for the coming 20 years, the people of the city play an imperative role too in addressing their agendas into the Development Plan. A workshop was held on the 3rd of January by the name of Money Life foundation to spread the message under the governance of the Urban Development and Research Institute.

The future prospects of the development of the city of Mumbai right from 2014 all the way till 2034 has great importance for the public too can actively participate and encourage the development plans.

According to Pankaj Joshi, the executive director for the UDRI the development in the city started from 1964 and was revised later in 1981. For the last 50 years, a mere 10-12% of these visions came to being. The city has grown at a rapid pace but doesn’t have any development plan to back the growth. As per him, if the current technology is failing then it is questionable as to whether future generations will bear benefits of such developmental plans.

To understand the ground reality, all development plans have been dispatched to the ward offices of the Municipal Corporation of Mumbai with detailed locations of the area. To make all these development plans more value added, the participants are being urged by Pankaj Joshi himself. The city of Mumbai covers nearly 2000 hectares of land which is about the same as the 4000 maidans added to the city. With the decrease in mangroves, saltpans and wetlands, these issues to must be thought about according to him.

The majority part of the entire landscape comprises of integral zones which cover the markets and hawking zones which need to be highlighted which is why project are required to be executed purposely. A per the last development plan, the facility of car sheds for the Mumbai Monorail project still aren’t a reality.

It is he who motivated the participants to ensure that their efforts were in lieu on the development lines of Mumbai by making sure the Municipal Corporation worked in the correct manner. A discussion in great length was followed up in this very session. The development plans for Mumbai is the need of the hour according to the experts of the UDRI. The growth of the city shall now be planned in a suitable way with the aid of the common man’s participation.
