MMRDA waits to lease plots to part finance infra projects in Mumbai

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has been waiting for two plots in the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) to be leased out for a long time.

To help fund infrastructure projects, MMRDA is looking to lease out two plots in Mumbai and the rest of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR).

Within the Bandra Kurla Complex's Central Business District, the MMRDA has been attempting to monetise plots C-44 and C-48. It aims to raise at least Rs 3,44,448 per sq m of allowable built-up area.

The combined plot area of both land parcels is 6,018.90 sq m, with a permitted built-up area of 30,000 sq m.

As a result, the MMRDA expects to raise a minimum of Rs 1,033.34 crore at the reserve price.

The MMRDA has been attempting to monetize its Bandra Kurla Complex land bank for several years. It first advertised plot C-65 for lease in 2016, but it didn't receive a bid until early 2019 when it also advertised plots C-44 and C-48.

Sumitomo Corporation, a Japanese conglomerate, purchased the C-65 plot for Rs 2,238 crore. The offer letter was written to Goisu Realty for an 80-year lease.

The MMRDA changed the reservation of all plots in the financial district from solely commercial to mixed-use – a mix of residential and commercial – to make the deal more lucrative for real estate players.

The MMRDA has been working on several infrastructure projects over the last few years, the most capital-intensive of which are the MMR metro lines. The total cost of all infrastructure projects exceeds Rs 1 lakh crore. It has borrowed money from international bilateral and multilateral development banks, among others, in addition to internal accruals.

Indian PM2.5's Oxidative Potential Far Exceeds Europe's

A recent study highlights the significantly higher oxidative potential (OP) of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in India compared to Europe. PM2.5, tiny particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres, can penetrate deep into the lungs and even enter the bloodstream, causing various health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. The study, conducted by researchers from India and Europe, revealed that the OP of PM2.5 in Indian cities is five times greater than that in European cities. OP measures the ability of PM2.5 to generate reactive oxygen species, which can cause ..
