Q.

Mumbai is supposed to be the 4th costliest city in the world. So much so for all this shabby infrastructure and slum housing. Do ya think it is worth the value for money living in Mumbai?

No one is under compulsion to live in Mumbai. If they are not happy they should move to some other city.

It took almost 35 years or 40 years to progress in new Bombay.

Why blame north Indians and south Indians only if they send money to their loved ones off course they are there for their own purpose and that is money. Almost all the ministers from the rural Maharashtra every MLA would like to improve their area or their pockets Mumbaikar hardly get ministerial birth. When Shiv Sena and BJP was ruling their only strengthened their own parties not the Mumbai. In 2001 heavy rains took lot of live stock and almost 500 older trees were up rooted. Congress had rules entire their history in Mumbai but the progress is zero. What ever the infrastructure you see it was b ...more

Go to mumbai. see the situation for yourself and then you will never ask this question again. there has to be something special if people are paying such a high price for living there. almost 90 % of the indian cinema is there, all big financial instituions are there and so on.
as they say seeing is beleiving.
i been to mumbai at least 100 times, but i would not like to live there

There is a difference between people, who feel aamchi mumbai, who wont say is it worth, and those who came from other parts and settled in Mumbai for different reasons, feel is it worth the value for money living in Mumbai?.

This is not just for Mumbai, the case is even worst for once, city of joy to dying city.

Still it is possible to reshape it, Instead of planning to go for more industries, it is better to shift them to other city, accelerated planning and action to provide the Water & sewage system, replacing slums with group housing, employing local available labours & machines so that they get their daily wages, work for machineries & atleast for that period movement of that much people is limited, because of recession slow-down in real estate, restricting people within city to have minimum number of vehicles, agenda for both corporations and development boards and time limit to achieve, and contractors must be given maintenance too and held responsible in case of unexpecte ...more
