Mumbai: Union Minister of State for Communications and IT Gurudas Kamat met Union Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh in Delhi today and discussed various impediments in the development of Mumbai due to Environmental and Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) regulations.

Ramesh will visit here late this month to get a first hand review of CRZ regulations regarding various development issues here, Kamat said.

Kamat, representing Mumbai North West parliamentary constituency, said the regulations needed to be diluted to expand the road infrastructure and expedite re-development of several colonies and slums.

Kamat, in a letter sent to Ramesh on July 26, asked for the clearance of Navi Mumbai International Airport as well as asked for dilution of CRZ Rules which, he said, had affected redevelopment of poor and middle income colonies and slums.

Kamat said the Versova-Goregaon Link Road, redevelopment of Bangur Nagar in Goregaon and Sardar Vallabhai Patel Nagar in Versova had been stalled.

The minister invited Ramesh for on-the-site inspection and said the environment minister's proposal where 51 per cent Government/MHADA participation was insisted upon, was not workable as per his (Kamat’s) estimate.
