Maharashtra - Redefining urban growth

Maharashtra - Redefining urban growth

Maharashtra — an economic and industrial powerhouse of the country — is leading urbanisation in India. It annually contributes about 10 lakh to the urban population of India which is more than 10 per cent of national level. However, the urban population in Maharashtra is highly concentrated in the western region, specifically in Mumbai, Pune and Nashik region. These three cities together account for more than 50 per cent of Maharashtra’s urban population.

Maharashtra - Redefining urban growth

For the state to continue on the urbanisation path, it is important that it undertakes significant expansion of its urban boundaries, ease hurdles affecting real estate development and promote affordable housing development in the city of Mumbai. 

This study, an effort by KPMG in India and NAREDCO, highlights some of the key concerns and strives to provide an agenda for action for the Maharashtra government to meet the vision of ‘Housing for all by 2022’.
