Maharashtra aiming to develop integrated city bigger than Navi Mumbai
The state government is planning third planned city in Raigad district after Navi Mumbai and Navi Mumbai Airport Influenced Notified Area (NAINA).
The city will come up on the banks of Kundlikriver in four talukas over 19,147 hectares area.
The area of the proposed integrated industrial township is slightly more than that of Navi Mumbai, which is spread over 18,824 hectares. The new city will come up at distance of around 100 km from Navi Mumbai.
The notification of appointing City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) as a special planning authority and of land acquisition was issued by the government on January 19.
The new city will come up over 40 villages spread across four talukas of Raigad district – Roha, Alibaug, Murud and Shrivardhan.
The largest part of the new township will come up in Rohataluka where land from 27 villages will be acquired.
Under the state government’s integrated industrial township policy, 60 per cent land is used for industries and 40 per cent can be used for residential and commercial purposes.
