A decision was taken in a meeting between the urban development department and NTC officials in Mantralaya on Thursday. The plot is located along the sea in Dadar.
Chief minister Ashok Chavan had requested Union textiles minister Dayanidhi Maran to allot land for the project. A senior state government official said, “The NTC wants to construct a hotel with a convention centre on the remaining eight-acre plot. We will give the entire floor space index (FSI) to the NTC.”
The state government will sign a memorandum of understanding in October with the NTC. Since the plot is next to the sea, the development will require a nod from the Union ministry of environment and forests.
The NTC has also agreed to hand over a plot for setting up of a vocational guidance centre for mill workers and their wards by December 31.
