Awhad opined that Maharashtra’s development is linked to the housing industry. He reportedly uttered that since there are no open land spaces available in Mumbai, the development of the city is only possible through redevelopment.

Similarly, Mumbai suburban guardian minister, Aaditya Thackeray who also attended the event voiced that the government was working on reducing the time to attain Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) clearance to 1-2 months.

Therefore, he urged them to come together to create in-house facilities which will help construct “not just 15 minutes cities, but 5-minutes cities”.
