MHADA has approached Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) and LIC to grant no-objection certificates for redevelopment of old buildings on their land in the city.
While chairman of MbPT has agreed to grant a no-objection certificate to MHADA for the redevelopment of cessed buildings on its land, the housing board is yet to hear from LIC.
"There are about 1,100 to 1,200 such buildings on MbPT's land housing nearly 21,000 families. We recently had a meeting with chairman Rajeev Gupta and MP Milind Deora. Gupta agreed for redevelopment of these buildings and will send a proposal to the government," said Prasad Lad, chairman of MHADA's repair and reconstruction board. These cessed buildings on port trust land are spread across the island city.
