Infrastructure Policy

In order to improve the management of existing industrial infrastructure in the state, the State Government is planning to set up 'industrial township authorities' in respective industrial areas. These authorities will be autonomous bodies responsible for managing common infrastructure with active participation from the industrial units located in the area. They will also collect taxes and revenues for various services. In the first phase, 12 such industrial township authorities shall be set up. The Government is also planning to develop industrial parks in the state through private sector participation.

While the state's electricity sector is considered among the more progressive ones, the State Government has taken steps to further streamline the sector. It has set up the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) under the provisions of the Electricity Regulatory Commission Act, 1998. The process of restructuring the Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB) is underway.

Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation

The State Government has constituted the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) to accelerate development of transport infrastructure in the state. MSRDC has executed several notable projects, including the prestigious Mumbai-Pune Expressway (MPE), flyover projects in Mumbai, rail-overbridges across the state etc. The key projects under various phases of implementation include Bandra-Worli Sea Link and Trans Harbour Link, among others. MSRDC has been assigned responsibility for carrying out a feasibility study of Mass Rapid Light Rail Transit System at Pune, Nagpur and Thane cities and development of an air cargo hub at Nagpur. The US$ 400 million Mumbai-Pune Expressway connects the two largest cities of Maharashtra and has been built to international standards.
