minister to fast-track infrastructural projects relating to Mumbai many raised the concern that such a move would alienate Mumbai from Maharashtra The absurdity of such a concern prompted me to push for increased Union government involvement in the development of my city Mumbai Mumbai accounts for nearly 46 per cent of the country’s economy contributing 30 per cent to income tax collections 60 per cent to customs duty collections and 40 per cent to foreign trade The city’s annual GDP at $209 billion is higher than that of any other state except Maharashtra (and accounts for nearly 85 per cent of the state’s GDP) In such a scenario where Mumbai’s contributions to the nation and to Maharashtra are immense improving the city through Union government intervention will only benefit the country and the state and not take away from the identity the city shares with the state Mumbai holds the distinction of being the wealthiest city in India However the city is full of contradictions While it is the wealthiest city it is yet to build its infrastructure to world-class levels Skyscraper-filled skies are marred by a sea of slums Mumbai is neither healthy nor wealthy in its infrastructure Mumbai’s infrastructural capabilities need to be enhanced to match the growing economic demands of its population In order to make Mumbai a leading financial centre of the world we need a long-term plan that focuses solely on the city’s development According to the Global Financial Centres Index (GFCI) 16 Mumbai (61) lags behind cities like Taipei (27) Busan (28) Sao Paulo (34) Tel Aviv (36) Mexico City (44) Rio de Janeiro (45) Bangkok (46) Panama (49) and Casablanca (51) I have since the beginning of my term as MP from Mumbai North Central advocated the need for increased Union government support and presence in Mumbai’s development Indeed the importance of Mumbai to the health of the whole nation mandates that the betterment of the city be taken up as an exclusive project — “Project Mumbai” Project Mumbai would act as a mechanism for a concentrated focus on the city’s development and provide a timebound plan for the same The coming together of various agencies and ministries under the state and Central governments would augment the project’s effectiveness The starting point is to perfect the coordination between the state and Centre and specifically among various ministries of the Union government Mumbai suffered greatly in the past decade due to the lack of coordination between the Union and state governments In particular many projects are yet to see the light of day due to the lack of clearance from Central ministries The Coastal Road Project one of the most important projects to decongest western Mumbai has been held up for years and is currently pending approval from the environment ministry The Sewri-Nhava Sheva Trans-Harbour Link is a critical link between south and north Mumbai — it will play a major role in boosting trade and commerce and will attract investments because it eases the commute to and from central business locations The trans-harbour project has been pending for a record 30 years now and is currently awaiting clearance from the environment and shipping ministries Of the pending projects transport infrastructure projects such as new metro lines and the revamp of the suburban railway system are of primary concern to Project Mumbai for it includes the development of not just the city of Mumbai where most people work but also the suburban areas where working Mumbai lives Apart from this there is a need to revamp railway infrastructure between Mumbai and the five surrounding municipal corporations of Thane Navi Mumbai Bhiwandi Kalyan-Dombivali and Mira-Bhayandar It is in this context that the Maharashtra chief minister proposed setting up an empowered group of ministers headed by the prime minister to fast-track infrastructure projects in the city I believe the same is necessary keeping in mind the number of pending infrastructure projects and the relevance of Mumbai’s infrastructure development to the city’s growth and that of the nation as a whole But is it just the big infrastructure projects that will enable Mumbai to become world-class Of course not Project Mumbai needs to be comprehensive in nature and has to focus on a variety of issues including the conservation of heritage protection of mangroves rejuvenation of the Mithi river that flows across the city preservation of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park and the creation of a top-class global business hub at the Bandra Kurla Complex Two issues are crucial to Mumbai’s development: the provision of affordable housing and planned open spaces within the city While these two could be hard to achieve given that the existing per capita open space ratio (area of open space a citizen has access to) is a mere 099 square metre it is the need of the hour In this context I am happy to note that the chief minister has announced the increase in the floor space index of up to four for the construction of houses for police and public sector employees The development of Mumbai as a world-class city requires multiple structures to come together and a nodal agency with a well-thought-out plan to make Project Mumbai a reality Moreover urban management demands the increasingly active participation of all stakeholders including the public and private sectors as well as the people of Mumbai The empowered committee can facilitate such active participation Indeed if Mumbai has to come close to competing with leading global financial centres such as New York London Tokyo and Seoul and with cities that are likely to become more significant world financial centres in future like Casablanca Shanghai and Singapore the Union government has to play a substantial and coordinated role along with the state government and other authorities The Maharashtra chief minister’s leap of faith in transforming Mumbai through the empowered group of ministers led by the prime minister is laudable and a step in the right direction If this mechanism materialises Mumbai can be an embodiment of reinvention that leads to the broad participation of all stakeholders in deciding its future along with sustainable living and a harmonious relationship of the city’s past with the present thereby serving as an inspiration for other cities in India to undergo a transformation As renowned urban planner architect and former mayor of the Brazilian city of Curitiba Jaime Lerner said “Cities are not the problem They are the solution”

will be added to the 22 existing honours given by the department Top News The recent GR (Government Resolution) on the introduction of an award exclusively for the work done in the field of tribal literature has been welcomed by writers researchers and poets associated with the field who feel that their works will finally be recognised The GR was issued by the Maharashtra State Literature and Culture Mandal’s Marathi Language Department over a week ago Instituted in the name of renowned tribal writer Govind Gare the award will be distributed from next year and carries a prize money of Rs 1 lakh The award is added to the 22 existing awards given by the department City-based Kundalik Kedari of Lalit Rangbhoomi said he has been writing to the government authorities since 2013 demanding an independent award that recognises tribal literature writers He said “In 1967 the tribal department was started by the government especially to cater to the tribals If there is a separate department for tribals there should be an independent award for those who have been working in the field of tribal literature So far the tribal literature was considered a part of Dalit literature though the two are different categories Thus I had been following up with the department for a fair due for tribal litterateurs through various letters and RTIs” Bhaumik Deshmukh a professor at Pune University who has done research on issues faced by the tribal community said many writers from the community have produced exceptionally-good literature based on extensive research without expecting anything “Such genuine people need to be recognised and honoured Although I don’t want to sound cynical in our country most of the awards by the government are politically-influenced and thus those do genuine work do not get recognition I hope it doesn’t happen with the tribal literature award too” he added Author of 18 books on the lifestyle of tribal community and the issues they face writer Vinayak Samba Tumram while hailed the decision but said the award should not be partial towards writers of a particular area “The tribes and sub-tribes in the state are spread in Gondwana Sahyadri and Satpuda It shouldn’t happen that the writers of one region are favoured and the rest are ignored While selecting a candidate things like the thought process of the writer quality of his works and his overall contribution to the field in the tribal literature should be considered” he said Tumram was the first person in the state to pursue a PhD on tribal literature and had organised the first Adiwasi Sahitya Sammelan in Bhadravati Chandrapur in 1979 According to Pune-based professor Tukaram Rongate who heads the Marathi department in Pune University the decision though good has come a bit late “There are many writers who have been working in this field for several decades They needed some recognition from the government Now that the decision has been taken I feel more people will come forward with interesting work” he added Rongate has penned nearly 10 books on tribal literature For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | Pune |
