Bhayandar: The state government has finally set the ball rolling towards creating an elevated version of its existing law enforcing agency for Mira Bhayandar, by approving modifications to reservation status of land for the police headquarters.
A centrally located plot in the Pleasant Park area of Mira Road earmarked by the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) to accommodate the headquarters of the much needed urban policing system was tagged for public amenities including secondary school and playground in the Development Plan, necessitating the civic administration to pass a resolution seeking government nod to modify the status of 11,895 sq.mt. land in accordance to section 37(1) of the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning Act, 1966.
“With the government approving the modifications, decks have been cleared for constructing the much needed entity,” confirmed a senior MBMC officer. Keen on up-gradation CM Devendra Fadnavis had given an in-principle nod, while directing the MBMC to identify a suitable plot for the purpose and table a proposal after carrying out necessary modifications. The Mira-Bhayandar sub-divisions of the Thane (rural) has 6 police stations-Bhayandar, Navghar, Uttan, Mira Road, Kashimira and Naya Nagar under its belt.
