the financial capital recently gained nearly 15 square kilometres through natural sedimentation along its eastern coast the latest data regarding existing land use indicates that the living space for people remains a tight squeeze The new data collected by officials as part of the ongoing revision of the city’s Development Plan has found that the 124 crore population collectively occupies just 1032709 hectare or 10328 square kilometres of the city’s land area In other words there are over 12 lakh people per square kilometre space “The per capita residential area currently available in Mumbai is just 83 square metre” the survey’s findings state With the addition of a 1496- sq-km patch of lush mangrove the city’s total area is now 47328 sq km Of this civic officials said land use for

and office spaces occupy just three per cent (1272 sq km) of the land A previous land use survey carried out while formulating the Development Plan of 1991 had pegged the total land area under commercial activities at 1394 sq km A senior official said some ‘mixed user’ activities (lands used for residential and commercial purposes) were included in these categories “The current data is more precise” the official said Still the data showed land used for commercial and economic activities had not grown despite the intervening years and the economic boom Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta and retired bureaucrat Ramnath Jha who is supervising the revision of the Development Plan have both said reasserting Mumbai’s status as an economic engine was a key target while drafting the new plan “One of the deliverables was to make spatial provisions to generate employment of eight million” Mehta said Jha added that it was to achieve this objective that higher FSI incentives have been proposed for IT and bio-tech parks and a plan to set up new Central Business Districts in Mumbai has been floated Land cover under industrial use has seen a steep decline from 14 per cent of the land
