Mumbai- Mayor Bungalow now will be converted into a Bal Thackeray’s memorial. This decision was taken by the state cabinet and later it was transferred to civic improvement committee for consideration.
A proposal to lease 11,000 sq mt of the mayor’s bungalow plot at Swatantryaveer Savarkar Marg to the Bal Thackeray’s memorial at a nominal rate of Rs. 1 per annum for a period of 30 years was tabled before the civic improvements committee for approval on Wednesday.
“I am glad that we got to approve the project. I am also thankful to the state government to bring up this project on the table before the code of conduct,” said Prakash Gangadhare, president, Improvement committee.
The proposal says that the memorial can use 1.33-floor space index (FSI) for the memorial. It cannot sub-lease or rent the plot to the other party. It also cannot carry out additional construction, repairs or changes without prior permission of civic officials.
