The Maharashtra government has proposed the construction of a tourist complex at South Mumbai’s Worli Dairy. This complex will reportedly be built using international standards. 

This 14-acre Worli Dairy area will have a world-class aquarium as well, with the CM Uddhav Thackeray reportedly asking the Tourism Ministry to follow the Singapore model for this aquarium.

Deputy CM Ajit Pawar announced plans for the tourist complex during the 2020-21 budget presented by the government. Pawar also holds the Planning and Finance ministry in the Maharashtra Cabinet. 

This project is said to be the brainchild of Tourism Minister Aaditya Thackeray who is also believed to be instrumental in getting Mumbai towards a 24x7 lifestyle, despite criticism from some key members of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government, including Ajit Pawar.

It is said that this project will cost Rs 1,000 crore and the government will offer a feasibility report soon. This tourist complex will reportedly pass through the proposed Mumbai coastal road.

The recently announced State budget also made allocations for the construction of new rural and urban roads to improve connectivity between key parts of the state. However, prices for essentials like fuel are expected to increase. The government is also focusing on youth employment as well as enhancing the school system while bolstering higher education.


State Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad recently mentioned that schools in the state will have a job-centric syllabus to help them get employed.
