Mumbai: In a bid to expedite the process to set up a memorial of Babasaheb Ambedkar on Indu Mill land in Central Mumbai, the Maharashtra cabinet today approved the issuance of assurance-deed as demanded by the Centre.
According to the state government’s decision, it will transfer the surplus floor space index (FSI) on the land to Centre.
The erstwhile UPA government had given the nod to make available the 4.84 hectares of total land of the defunct mill for the purpose of setting up the memorial of the dalit icon.
