Seventy Eight new skyscrapers in Mumbai's future skyline

High-rise committee chairman Shafi Parkar and BMC commissioner Sitaram Kunte have approved development of 78 new skyscrapers - building 70 meters of higher. Currently Mumbai has only 30 skyscrapers that top 100 meters. Shanghai has 200 and New York has nearly 500.

This development will clearly help the lack of space, however, it will strain the current meager infrastructure for water supply and transportation.
