Mumbai: Salt pan lands in Mumbai can be real estate boom

Private developers in Mumbai can soon be benefited from city’s salt pan lands which can be next real estate boom. There is around 5500 acres of salt pans in eastern and western suburbs which can be utilized for real estate purposes.


At present these land parcels are with centre-run salt department, which were leased to salt industries way back. Most of these manufacturers have now joined hands with realty developers to develop these tracts, but it can be done only when government opens these in near future.


Salt department has been trying to save this land for decades and for this it has been fighting cases too. Recently the department announced that it owns 500 acre salt-pan in Bhandup and advised people not to sign any sale or lease deal related to plot located in this area.


These salt pan plots are some of the reaming open spaces in land-starved Mumbai. These are very important for the city as these protect it from flood by acting as natural sponge for rain overflow and its government’s and public’s responsibility to defend it.

Favista’s Views: Though Mumbai is a city where land scarcity is there, but it doesn’t mean that natural resources or the places which help in protection of city should also be used for development. It’s better to seek for increased FAR than using land which should not be.
