Moving Wholesale Market out of South Mumbai

South Mumbai is where business, Government, and commercial and wholesale markets were concentrated. This was a huge boon to the area when the population of the city was manageable. However, the same advantage was a big contributor to the traffic congestion in the city. MMRDA has been relocating wholesale markets from South Mumbai to outside of the Greater Mumbai area - to Thane and Navi Mumbai. Markets for onion, potato, sugar, spices and condiments, dry fruits, iron and steel have already been shifted to Navi Mumbai. Ground Nuts, pulses, edible oil markets is being move to Navi Mumbai along with the fruits and vegetable markets. This will follow the textile markets move to the Bandra-Kurla complex soon.
