CIDCO- NAVI MUMBAI
The Navi Mumbai project began in 1971.
The seed capital given to CIDCO was Rs. 3.95 cr. and it was
expected that it would use land as resource to finance the
The Navi Mumbai project area spread over approx. 343.7
sq.kms and contained 95 villages of Thane and Raigad
The area covered under the project had about 17,000
hectares of private land and an equal area forest and
The existing population in the project area was 1,17,000.
Lack of resources was thus a major concern in the initial
stages of development.
HOUSING IN NAVI MUMBAI
The primary objective was to make the land affordable to all income groups and to allow all land
Households in Navi Mumbai are divided into various income categories, especially for the
purpose of housing calculation (EWS, LIG, MIG, and HIG).
The higher income groups would pay a surcharge for housing, which would subsidise housing for
the lower income groups. CIDCO decided to use a maximum surcharge of 15% on housing for
highest income to compensate for a maximum subsidy of 45% to lowest income groups.
CIDCO has constructed about 123,577 of housing stock in the city, out of which 51% of housing for
EWS / LIG, while 26% was reserved for MIG and 23% for HIG.
The total housing stock created in Navi Mumbai is about 2,25,000 units, out of which 1,23,577
units are built by CIDCO and rest by private sector.
CIDCO constructed houses for EWS under Bombay Urban Development Project (BUDP) I, II and III
in Airoli, Kopar Khairane, Kharghar, Nerul, Kalamboli and New Panvel.
Some ambitious housing projects were also undertaken by the Corporation for different income
groups i.e. Gharkul and Spaghetti for LIG, and MIG, Millennium Towers for MIG and Seawoods
