STATE TO SET UP HIGH-POWER COMMITTEE TO EXAMINE FSI POLICY

It’s time to take a close, hard look at Mumbai’s vertical growth,” said chief minister Ashok Chavan in the legislative assembly. Chavan agreed with scores of MLAs who, setting aside party differences, expressed concern over the mushrooming of multistoreyed apartments in the metropolis. In his hour-long reply to an ongoing Mumbai debate, Chief Minster Ashok Chavan addressed issues concerning Floor Space Index, affordable housing, and other related problems. To this effect, the state government will set up a high-power committee to review the existing FSI policy, he said. Stating that the government was keen on backing projects for affordable housing for Mumbaikars, Chavan said in the next five years, 1.70 lakh tenements will be created under the slum rehabilitation scheme. He added that government was keen on promoting eco-housing in the city. The CM also announced a land audit policy. Satellite images will furnish details of Mumbai’s unauthorised structures.
