Mumbai becomes the 1st Indian city with designated infrastructure for women in its urban plan

My list


In a step towards female empowerment, Mumbai has now become the first city in the country with an urban plan which has provisions for designated spaces for the needs of women. The city’s urban plan has a gender-specific focus on reserving physical and social infrastructure for the ladies and it also provides approximately 90 land reservations to address women’s needs including education, health, housing and safety. This game-changing plan has an entire chapter titled ‘Gender, Special Groups and Social Equity’, added by the BMC under the Revised Draft Development Plan 2034.
