A total of 407 acre in the green Aarey Colony in suburban Mumbai, Maharashtra, can now be used for infrastructure and building construction projects.

The Supreme Court of India on 17 June 2020 dismissed an appeal by NGO Vanashakti against a National Green Tribunal (NGT) order.

The Supreme Court bench, however, observed that Mumbai was a congested city and Metro was important, and dismissed the NGO’s appeal.

Among the major projects planned within the exempted 407 acre in Aarey is a slum redevelopment project spread over 90 acre, which will hold 80,000 people.
