Mumbai is all set to get new urban development makeover as Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister, Maharashtra recently unveiled a series of policies related to affordable housing, redevelopment of slums, transit camps, and property tax waiver while underlining a strong message that open spaces in the island city and suburbs will not be compromised in the new development plan.

On the occasion, Fadnavis said, The state government has taken a decision to bring a separate independent development control regulation (DCR) for the koliwadas, goathan and tribal padas dotted across Mumbai and its suburbs.

The motive behind the new policies is to provide the much-needed importance and to protect the interest of fishermen and tribal communities, the original custodians of these colonies.

Fadnavis also confirmed policies related to property tax waivers, The government is positive about giving property tax waiver for houses upto 700 square feet. He concluded. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, which is the guardian agency, will bring the proposal and government will give its nod to the proposal.
