The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority is planning to commission a survey to collect social and economic data on the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR).
The authority will form a core committee for generating the report that will focus on finding details such as life expectancy at birth, education and literacy and purchasing power parity in the MMR.
"This survey will help assess ground realities, formulate programmes with a human face and achieve sustainable and balanced growth in all areas of the region," Metropolitan Commissioner Ratnakar Gaikwad said. MMR is the area comprising the metropolis of Mumbai and its satellite towns. Developing over a period of 20 years, it consists of seven municipal corporations and 15 smaller municipal councils.
In 2009, the municipal corporation had published a human development report for Mumbai.
