The panellists reviewed Mumbai affordable housing sector and its practical challenges such as the dire need of strategic urban mobility and infrastructure planning for horizontal expansion. While some experts felt that vertical growth, slum re-development, cluster development and integrated townships at the peripheriesoffered the solutions for city’s housing shortage, others felt reshaping of the city was impossible and maybe Mumbai required to be re-built.
