Puratan bungalow to be razed to make way for the bldg

Mumbai: The Maharashtra government has chalked out a plan to construct an 18-storey residential tower for ministers on a plot in Malabar Hill in south Mumbai.

The plot, spread over 2,584 square metres, currently houses a 105-year-old bungalow, “Puratan”.

A committee, comprising secretaries, has approved the project which will cost Rs 119 crore. The panel has approved an FSI of 4 for the residential tower.

Floor space index or FSI means the ratio between the area of a covered floor (built up area) to the area of that plot (land) on which a building stands.

Sources said on Friday the Puratan bungalow, which is currently unoccupied and in dilapidated condition, will be demolished to make way for a building which will house residences of 18 ministers.

The total area of construction will be 10337.80 square metres.

Each minister will have construction of 574 square metres on each floor which will include a living room, 4 bed rooms, kitchen, office, visitors lounge, ante chamber, two staff quarters and storage space, among other facilities, they said.

There will be guests/visitors lobby and lifts, separate entry and exits for ministers and family members, guests and visitors. There will be a multi-purpose hall with pantry, service lift and service lobby, the sources said.

The project plan is expected to soon come to PWD minister Ashok Chavan for approval.
