Mumbai has limited land resources. Recent studies have guided the city to free up 46.65 square kilometers of land for health, education and open space over the next 20 years. The 280-page report, jointly drafted by BMC and Group SCE India Ltd, a 100 per cent subsidiary of French consulting firm EGIS Geoplan, was submitted to Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan in November last year.

“As part of this urban planning cell, a full fledged GeoSpatial Data Infrastructure cell is also being planned, which will facilitate creating and maintaining of updated GIS database including utilities mapping underneath roads to meet all the data requirements regarding land use and to augment in monitoring developments in the city,” Municipal Commissioner Sitaram Kunte said in his budget speech for 2013-14.
