While the BMC pro­poses to spend nearly Rs 1.4 crore to con­vert the longne­glected beach into a mag­net for vis­i­tors, the orig­i­nal Juhu ex­per­i­ment had not been wel­comed by all and many had ex­pressed light pol­lu­tion con­cerns.

There were voices against the “gaudy” light­ing at Juhu beach and some peo­ple had raised health fears, par­tic­u­larly about the ef­fect on vi­sion.

The work pe­riod for the re­vamp of Mahim beach would be six months, ex­clud­ing the rains. A six-month de­fect li­a­bil­ity pe­riod will cover the light­ing. The con­trac­tor will be pe­nalised 1% of the cost for de­lay.

100% of the land is with govt and com­pen­sa­tion has been given to around 90% of the af­fected farm­ers
