MMRDA Ropes in World Bank to Map Region

Revamp the Railways
  • Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has tied up with the World Bank to map the entire Mumbai Metropolitan Region.
  • The World Bank will guide MMRDA in planning the project, assess needs, identify information gaps, and identifying methods and technologies.
  • The current database has a lot of data gaps.
  • Planning projects or giving approvals becomes a tedious process because a lot of assumptions have to be made based on the existing data available.
