Mumbai, Mar 25 (UNI) The Maharashtra government and the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) have extended the last date for receiving tenders for Dharavi's development till April 30 from the previous deadline of March 25.
The sector-wise development of Dharavi, Asia's biggest slum, has been delayed due to the number of questions put up by the bidders to the government and MHADA officials regarding the project.
The government has sold more than 100 forms with each form costing Rs 1 lakh, and has evoked interest amongst the national developers like Reliance, Hiranandani, Gammon India and many international developers.
Mukesh Mehta, the project manager and consultant for the project, said, ''The bidders have come up with as many as 600-700 questions as the money involved is huge and to have more time for answering the same, the deadline has been extended.'' There are in all 19 bidders for the sector-wise development of Dharavi, with 18 Indian companies having international partners and one Indian owned company.
