Will going vertical weigh city down?
Will it be the vision of private developers, who are pushing for increasing the floor space index (FSI) so they can build taller towers, or the vision of the common man, who is suffering because of a crumbling civic infrastructure?
This question was raised by a former bureaucrat at one of the preliminary meetings organised by the Maharashtra Economic Development Council with top state officials on Friday.
The meeting was a warm-up to the setting up of a government task force on Mumbai's future.
The task force will first meet
on Tuesday and submit its report to the CM by November 22. According to
government officials, the Mckinsey report will only
provide the basic structure around which the task force will deliberate
on the city's development.
