Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis

Announcing his plans to have a new comprehensive mobility plan for the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday, Day 2 of the Make in India Week, invited investment into Mumbai.

Fadnavis, who promised to give "quick and swift" clearances to all small, medium or big investors, claimed that his various departments have already begun the work of cutting down on paperwork and easing business permissions across Maharashtra.

The chief minister also announced the need for having a "Built in Mumbai" week that will focus exclusively on providing affordable housing to Mumbaikars.

"With 50% of our population living in slums, we now want to start the Built in Mumbai initiative that will aim at providing cheaper homes. We will soon start a massive campaign for it," Fadnavis added.

He said infrastructure is key to the growth of Mumbai's economy and infrastructure as it will not only create an ecosystem for a good life, but will also add to Make in Mumbai and create jobs. "All services can create business opportunity. Ease of doing business and simplification of procedures is of utmost importance and both the state and central governments are working on a war footing."

New business districts similar to the Bandra-Kurla Complex, besides new highways and railways and elevated corridors that cut through congestion, may breathe new life into making Mumbai, a global centre for financial services. "In India, only Mumbai can possibly be such a base, but physical infrastructure and the regulatory structure have a long way to go." he added.

Throwing light on the growing consumer demand, Fadnavis said, "We are a billion plus people. Consumers rule and dictate terms in the market. When the world says we want to invest, we should be ready to receive that investment by creating opportunities, so that the entire global community benefits. We should leverage on possibilities and capabilities."

Citing infrastructure as the only hindrance in its dream of becoming a global financial hub, the chief minister added, "The pace of growth should match the pace of infrastructure. We need a comprehensive mobility plan to transform Mumbai into an economic commercial region."

Addressing the conference, chief secretary Swadheen Kshatriya said, "We know our strengths and weaknesses. Sanitation and affordable housing will make the Make in Mumbai initiative a success."

He added that they look to complete the Navi Mumbai airport by 2019, while the trans-harbour link connecting Mumbai to Navi Mumbai will be ready in three to four months.'Built-in-Mumbai'-week-to-focus-on-affordable-housing--CM-Fadnavis-16629
