NAVI MUMBAI: If all goes according to plan, the civic body may soon convert all defunct industrial plots for commercial or residential use. The plan is along the lines of a land amendment, which is already put in practice by Thane and Mumbai municipal corporations.

Vashi corporator Vaibhav Gaikwad tabled a resolution to include the legal provision of modifying the use of such industrial plots under the Development Control Regulation (DCR) norms during the civic general body meeting on Saturday.

"There are many unused industrial plots, as the units operating there have stopped functioning. These plots could be used for commercial or residential purposes. The only requirement is that the civic body has to include the legal provision in its DCR, as done by various other corporations," said Gaikwad.

Gaikwad said that if the administration decided to amend the DCR, it will prove to be a windfall for the civic body. "The amendment is already in practice at Thane, Mumbai, Kalyan. Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) just has to replicate the provision," he added. He also said that the modification can benefit the civic body, as it will get 5% of the land for public utility for area up to 20,000 sq m. It will get possession of 20% of the land for plots measuring 20,000-50,000 sq m.

Assistant Director of Town Planning (ADTP) Prakash Thakur, said, "There is indeed a provision to make minor modifications so that unused industrial plots can be turned for residential or commercial use. The resolution passed at general body will have to be published in the gazette or newspapers. Based on the public's suggestions and recommendations, the report will be submitted to the state government to make the necessary changes to the DCR."
