MUM­BAI: It’s a bit­ter­sweet de­vel­op­ment: the Union Ship­ping Min­istry has set the ball rolling to cre­ate pub­lic ameni­ties on the city’s east­ern water­front, but your role in how it shapes up may be limited for now.

Union ship­ping min­istry has asked the Mum­bai Port Trust (MbPT) to make an ac­tion plan to open up sur­plus land in the port area for the city’s ben­e­fit, ship­ping Min­is­ter Nitin Gad­kari said on the side­lines of the Mar­itime In­dia Sum­mit. This comes a month af­ter Gad­kari said slums on the land will be re­set­tled and ameni­ties cre­ated for the city. But, Gad­kari has done an about-turn on mak­ing pub­lic a cru­cial re­port by a govern­ment-ap­pointed panel on how the land can be de­vel­oped.
