“The True Development of the country can be measured by the speed of its transportation and infrastructure development on the country, and MSRDC has a big role to play in it.Since our inception, it has been our Endeavour to change the face of future by taking on difficult challenges, and giving the best transportation models to the state. The future is decided on the basis of actions of today. Our vision for the future of Maharashtra is laid out by the efforts we put in the present. With India’s best engineers at work, a strong project and financial team, backed by pro-level planning skills, MSRDC is a team effort made successful. Each and every department of MSRDC is a testimony of hardwork, impeccable skills, and a futuristic vision.”
The Government of Maharashtra believes in a balanced, equitable and holistic development of the state. This can be achieved by creating an enabling environment by way of infrastructure development that supports the spirit of entrepreneurship, attracts investments and provides space for creativity. Hindu Hrudaysamrat Balasaheb Thackeray Maharashtra Samruddhi Mahamarg is being planned to fulfill this vision.
The infrastructure that will be built as a part of this mahamarg will boost economic development in rural areas of the state. This infrastructure includes the Nagpur – Mumbai Hindu Hrudaysamrat Balasaheb Thackeray Maharashtra Samruddhi Mahamarg that will enable safe and fast commute between Nagpur and Mumbai, and Krushi Samruddhi Nagar(new towns) equipped with modern amenities that will be developed at intersections.
The expressway will provide connectivity across regions and will be the gateway to national and international markets through Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) in Mumbai and the Multi-modal International Hub Airport at Nagpur (MIHAN). New towns that are proposed along the expressway will act as centers of development by providing production, trade, and commercial.
Often, such huge infrastructure projects are implemented at a cost to landowners. The Government of Maharashtra plans to bring about a paradigm shift in the way development projects of this scale are implemented. MSRDC will play the role of a ‘developer’ for the landowners participating voluntarily, whereby the landowners retain the ownership of the land allotted using a predetermined formula in the new towns.
To be able to do this, a novel concept of land pooling is being introduced. Under this scheme, developed plots and sustenance annuity as compensation will be offered to the landowners for 10 years
