Mumbai: Mumbaikars can start sending in their suggestions/objections if they want a house at the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC). The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has recently posted a notice declaring the latest modifications in land use for the “G” block at BKC. According to the new rules, any new construction or under-construction plot in the “G” block of BKC can have mixed use of land i.e. 30 per cent of the land for residential purposes and the rest for commercial purposes. The proposal was approved by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis last year. The authority has now made modifications under MMRDA’s Development Control Rules (DCR).
The suggestions and objections should be made within a month of the modification being published in the government gazette. The notice reads, “Following modification to the MMRDA’s Development Control Regulations, 1979, by inserting the following text at the end of Regulation 4(i). Except for plots allotted by the MMRDA in ‘G’ Block of BKC which are under-construction or on which, construction is yet to commence, residential use up to 30 per cent of the total built-up area is permissible in buildings on commercial plots.”
MMRDA is the special planning authority for BKC, which is referred to as the business district of the city. According to MMRDA, by allowing mixed use, the area will become more vibrant at night and employees working in BKC will find closer accommodation. With this, developers can create 30 per cent residential space at no cost or premium in the “G” block which houses more than 25 vacant plots
