Government of Maharashtra appointed CIDCO as the Special Planning Authority for the Khopta New Town notified area comprising of 32 villages.

Accordingly, CIDCO has published notice with the intention of preparing the draft development plan for the development of New Khopta Town with high-class infrastructure.

The primary objective of the development plan is to develop world-class infrastructure and to create the development opportunities for various sectors.

The development plan of 6 villages which is already approved and development plan of remaining 26 villages should comply with the Unified Development Control Promotion Regulations (UDPCR).

Therefore, while preparing the development plan of 26 villages the development plan of 6 villages also needs to be revised and suitable changes will be made.

The Khopta New Town notified area lies between Navi Mumbai and CIDCO’s Navi Mumbai Airport Influence Notified Area (NAINA). After the planned development of the area with world-class infrastructure it will rise to a well planned city.

This will create development opportunities in various sectors. GoM appointed CIDCO as Special Planning Authority for two different projects such as Khopta New Town notified area and Navi Mumbai Airport Influenced Area (NAINA).
