MUM­BAI: Bhi­wandi, in neigh­bour­ing Thane dis­trict, will soon be de­vel­oped into a lo­gis­tics and ware­house hub, as part of the MMRDA’s am­bi­tious plan to cre­ate growth cen­tres in the Mum­bai Met­ro­pol­i­tan Re­gion (MMR). The MMRDA has also iden­ti­fied 3,000 hectares in Khar­bao, adjacent to the pro­posed growth cen­tre in Bhi­wandi, to cre­ate a busi­ness hub.

Two years ago, the MMRDA planned ded­i­cated g rowth cen­tres at Kalyan, Bhi­wandi, Pan­vel, Alibaug-Pen and Va­sai-Vi­rar, along the pro­posed Vi­rar-Alibaug Mul­ti­modal Cor­ri­dor. The trans­port min­istry of Korea had pre­pared the mas­ter plan for the growth cen­tres, which are aimed at em­ploy­ment gen­er­a­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties and bal­anced de­vel­op­ment of the MMR. The Korean min­istry has pro­posed an FSI of 4 in Bhi­wandi.
