.ISSUES : POPULATION  The population projection for MMR shows that about 76 lakh new people will be living in MMR between 2011 and 2036.

PROPOSALS : BANDRA KURLA COMPLEX (BKC) This is the first in the series of new growth centers that are being planned in Greater Mumbai to help arrest further concentration of offices and commercial activities in South Mumbai.  The projections show that the municipal areas themselves are projected to absorb over 40 lakh new population.  Considering the high densities in cities. which will provide choices of places of stay and work. etc. . research and development. Growth centres : To facilitate employment creation in the tertiary sector. wholesale establishments. the proposed municipal extensions over such peripheries may help absorb the additional population better. The commercial development in BKC includes private and government offices (state and central). banks. and will provide ultimately about 200000 jobs in the area. STATERGIES: Special Planning Authority Areas : The population projections for MMR-2034 indicate that the current SPAs open up areas for urbanisation in excess of the requirement. education and recreational facilities and the necessary housing and infrastructure. It provides an alternative location where future growth of offices and commercial activity can be absorbed and where some of the existing activities from South Mumbai can be relocated. new Growth Centres GCs) are proposed at locations that are served by rail as well as road networks. The Growth Centres are envisaged as integrated complexes with opportunities for office sector employment. The sprawl at the peripheries of municipal areas is observed to be absorbing considerable amount of the new population.

ISSUE: REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT There is an imbalance between the development of the urban and rural areas in the region in terms of access to social and physical infrastructure.179 out of the 44. b) Enable economic development which is in tune to local needs and skillsets c) Rectify current deficiencies in physical and social amenities d) Serve as centres for local skill upgradation e) A point of convergence of Governmental schemes ISSUE: HOUSING As calculated. the housing need for MMR by 2036 is 44.23.42. (Adusumilli.730 units. The urban areas of the region have better access to infrastructure while several pockets of inadequacy exist in the rural areas of the region STRATERGIES: Local Development Centres (LDCs) : Clusters of villages in Bhiwandi.730 units. . It is expected that these LDCs will: a) Serve as local market centres. Each cluster has some centres as well as a large catchment area that is dependent on such centres. Karjat and Alibag Tehsils emerge as deficient in Social as well as physical infrastructure. 2007) STRATERGY: Redevelopments : Redevelopment schemes of slums and dilapidated structures are expected to meet the housing need to the extent of 15. Kalyan. and livelihood opportunities.42. It is proposed to promote a Local Development Centre in each cluster to initiate development of the cluster of villages. Using the available infrastructure as potential and natural boundaries. Rural MMR is divided into 29 Deficiency clusters. Ambernath. It is proposed to promote a Local Development Centre in each cluster to initiate development of the cluster of villages.
