Cidco fast-tracks Naina town-planning project in Navi Mumbai
The City and Industrial Development Corporation (Cidco) has accelerated the implementation of the Navi Mumbai Airport-Influenced Notified Area (Naina) project.
To prevent the haphazard development in the surrounding areas of Navi Mumbai International Airport, Cidco has proposed the Naina project, that will be developed over 371 sq km of land surrounding the Navi Mumbai International Airport and cover 175 villages of Raigad.
Of the 11 town-planning schemes proposed under the project, plans 1-3 are being implemented at various levels, while Cidco has appealed to the land owners under plans 4-11 to submit their consent letters at the earliest for prioritising the development.
Cidco vice-chairman and managing director Sanjay Mukherjee, said, “Cidco aims for the fast and transparent development of Naina town development plan. This project will prove to be a unique one in the town development sector with the participation and cooperation of land owners.”
The main feature of the town development plan under Naina is that it will be developed through participatory basis instead of land acquisition. The land owners under this scheme will contribute equal land. They will get 40% developed plot from their original land even if it is affected by any reservation, and the carpet area will also be the same as the original land. Thus, land owners will gain complete returns on their lands. Cidco will develop roads, playground, schools, gardens, growth centres and other facilities over the remaining 60% land.
