Two months af­ter the BMC laid out its vi­sion in the devel­op­ment plan (DP), its 20-year-long blue­print for the city, your chance to point out er­rors or sug­gest bet­ter op­tions will end on Fri­day evening.

It has nei­ther marked nor planned for res­i­dents liv­ing in the city’s slums, an ex­clu­sion which leaves out nearly 42% of the city. It has opened up No Devel­op­ment Zone (NDZ), land, which was held back from be­ing de­vel­oped for decades now and it has hiked the FSI that builders can avail. All these ideas have been bit­terly op­posed.
