CM Devendra Fadnavis to unveil Mumbai DP 2034 today

Mumbai: Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis has approved the Scrutiny Committee Report on the Mumbai Development Plan 2034. He will unveil the blueprint on Wednesday in Mumbai. According to a senior official from the Urban Development Department, the DP-2034 will pave the way for accelerated growth of Mumbai city.

The preparation of the draft DP began in February 2014 but following criticism over widespread errors, the government ordered a revision of the document. The chief minister has already indicated that the government has decided in principle that open spaces in the city will not be compromised. He has also said there will be special provision for demarcation of gaothans, koliwadas and tribal hamlets within the city. Another guiding principle in the revised plan is the creation of the maximum stock of affordable housing.

The new DCR is also expected to simplify the process of obtaining approvals further. Once published, the DP-2034 will be in force for 20 years. It can, however, be modified and land use can be altered, if the BMC and the government so desire. The Fadnavis government has already made certain changes to the draft prior to its final publication.


While the BMC general body had rejected the proposal to set up a car shed for Metro III in Aarey colony, the state government had notified it through a modification to the draft DP. BMC commissioner Ajoy Mehta, Nitin Kareer, UDD principal secretary, and Sanjay Kumar will host a Press conference on Wednesday at 1 pm at Mantralaya to unveil the document.
