Alignment modification at the Sewri-Worli Connector reduces rehabilitation costs from Rs 5,200 crore to Rs 110 crore

With the approval of a new alignment for the Sewri-Worli Connector project on Friday, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) significantly cut the rehabilitation and resettlement expenses from Rs 5,200 crore to just Rs 110 crore.

Under the project’s initial plan, 19 structures would be affected, and 392 people—286 residents and 106 non-residents—would be forced to relocate. The anticipated cost of restoration and relocation was over Rs 5200 crore. Nevertheless, the cost is much reduced because the alignment adjustment only impacts two buildings and around 77 people (58 residents and 19 non-residents).
