India: A Fast Growing Economy

Profile of India
India is the worlds seventh largest country by land mass occupying a total area of 3.17 mn It is also the worlds second largest country by population with a total of approximately 1,141 mn people. India has adopted a Constitution which provides for a parliamentary system of democracy. During the 1990s and the current decade, the country embarked on a series of economic reforms designed to liberalise various sectors of the economy. This has led to India emerging as the second fastest growing economy in the world after China. Annual growth in Indias Real GDP over the current decade is provided in the chart below:

Investments in Infrastructure
In order to sustain the robust GDP growth private and public investments are required for both creation of new assets and rehabilitation of existing assets. As per the Planning commission, the share of private investment in infrastructure is targeted to be USD 500 billion for the period in 2012-17(12

Plan period). This investment is about 50% of the total investment outlay. The

following chart provides growth in infrastructure investments over a period of time

Investments in Infrastructure (USD Billion)

Energy and transport sector have seen significant private sector investments in the earlier five year plans. In the forthcoming 12 five year plan (2012-17), it is expected that these two sectors would continue to attract major private sector investments. This has been depicted in the chart below

The key driver of infrastructure is the growing population of the country. About 64% of Indias population is in the employable age group prompting the need to create jobs. Thus about 250 Million of its population is migrating to cities making it necessary for government to look at rural infrastructure in order to bridge the Urban Rural divide. A 1.2 Billion population of which 250 million are working is driving consumer demand for basic goods and value added (manufactured goods). This has brought investments from the private sector and world majors in setting up world class plants in large cities / towns that can cater to the consumer demand. All these developments have meant employment opportunities and a significant growth of population in the cities as is evident in the chart below

Urbanisation Trends
Urban Population (million)

As a result, urban infrastructure has to be developed to remove decongestion and facilitate a better life to its residents.



Mumbai, the capital of Maharashtra, is the heart of commercial and trade activities of the country. With a population of over 12 million, Mumbai is the most populous city in the country. The island city occupying an area of 437 sq. km is spread over what were originally seven islands and lies on an 18 km long peninsula whose width varies from 4.75 km in the North to 1.3 km in the south. Often termed as India's commercial and financial capital, Mumbai (also termed as Greater Mumbai or the island city) is the highest contributor to India's income tax and corporate tax revenues. The Mumbai Stock Exchange and the National Stock exchange which together account for over 92% of the total turnover of the stock exchanges are located at Mumbai. Mumbai is well connected with the rest of the country by rail, road and air. The suburban railway trains in Mumbai carry approximately 7 million passengers everyday, which accounts for more

6|P a g e

MMRDA MTHL Preliminary Project Information Document

than half of the total daily passenger trips on Indian Railways. The public bus transport network in the city (BEST) carries approximately 4.5 million passengers every day. Mumbai has an international airport with major international airlines maintaining daily connections between Mumbai and the rest of the world. The airport is the busiest in India and serves as the primary international gateway to the country with service from 39 international carriers. The airport averages 369 daily scheduled commercial movements with annual average of 29 million passengers in 2010-11 with a growth rate of 14% and around 6,70, 235 tonnes of cargo. Thus, the island characteristic of the city has acted as a natural constraint on the expansion of Mumbai. To ease the pressure on Mumbai, a new city, Navi Mumbai has been developed on the mainland across from the Mumbai Harbour. The development of Navi Mumbai has the potential to further create more development zones in the adjoining region. Currently transportation is one of the major problems being faced by the city especially for residents in Navi Mumbai as they have to take a circuitous route to reach the offices located in Mumbai (many offices and commercial establishments are in south Mumbai).


Profile of Navi Mumbai

Navi Mumbai, one of the largest planned urban developments in India, was created as an alternative urban settlement for decongestion of Mumbai. Navi Mumbai is on mainland India across the Mumbai Harbour and on the eastern seaboard of the Thane Creek. The Navi Mumbai city limits stretches from Airoli near Thane in the north, to Uran in the south and spans an area of over 344 sq. km. Navi Mumbai, which is almost of the same length as Mumbai has a population of approximately 2.75 million people . Currently the Mankhurd-Vashi Bridge and the Thane-Airoli Bridge, connect Navi Mumbai to Mumbai as indicated in the chart below.

7|P a g e

MMRDA MTHL Preliminary Project Information Document

Existing connectivity of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai

Both Thane Creek bridge and Airoli bridge are near saturation, thereby necessitating creation of additional links to meet traffic growth. The saturation is a result of rapid growth of Navi Mumbai region as a number of projects, such as International Exhibition Centre, Amusement Park, Golf Course, International IT Hardware Park, the Multiplex and Family Entertainment Complex have been proposed at Navi Mumbai. The International Infotech Park (IIP) at Vashi, the Technology Centre at Belapur, and the Millennium Business Park at Mhape and the IT Hardware Park at Dronagiri offer tremendous potential for business related to computer hardware and software. These facilities are expected to contribute significantly towards the development of the region Over the last few decades, a number of leading corporates have set up their offices in Navi Mumbai including the Reliance Group, Wipro Ltd, CMC, Tata Consultancy Services, Aptech, ICICI Infotech and Patni computer Systems. The Government of Maharashtra has also setup several software parks in Navi Mumbai, which forms a major part of the "Knowledge Corridor'' that spans Mumbai and Pune. A number of wholesale activities have been shifted to Navi Mumbai from Mumbai. These include the agriculture wholesale produce markets -onion and potato, grain market and the iron and steel market.

The Jawaharlal Nehru Port, one of the major ports of India comprising container terminal, a bulk terminal, a liquid cargo jetty and a multipurpose berth, is located at Nhava Sheva in Navi Mumbai (India). The port, which ranks third among all the major ports for total cargo handling, handled a total cargo of 64.30 million tonnes, with 4.27 million TEUs of container traffic during the FY 2010-11. An international airport has also been proposed to be developed at Navi Mumbai. This airport has become an imperative, since the existing airport at Mumbai, is fast reaching saturation level. It has been proposed that the Navi Mumbai airport would be developed in an area of 2054 hectares accommodating two parallel runways for simultaneous and segregated parallel operation with provision of full-length taxi ways on either side of the runways. Thus the growth of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai has necessitated a need to ensure seamless connectivity between the two regions.

Project Details
Need for MTHL
As detailed in the earlier chapter, the narrow stretch of island Mumbai has traditionally been the epicenter of Indias commerce, and has seen a steady increase in population in the last three decades despite obvious spatial constraints. The 1971 planning report identified development of Navi Mumbai as an urgent requirement for easing the pressure on the mainland. However, lack of easy connectivity to the main mainland has been a hurdle and cause of inconvenience for the people staying in the mainland. It is estimated that development of mainland would reduce the pressure on the islands infrastructure. The map provides overall population and land distribution between Mumbai and Navi Mumbai regions

Population Distribution Map


Project Scope
The Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) is proposed to be developed as an Ex Expressway link having a six lanes connecting Sewri on Mumbai Island to Nhava on the mainland. MTHL is envisaged to reduce the distance between the island and mainland by 17km vis vis-a-vis the existing road link. This will help save approximately an hour of travel time.

MMRDA MTHL Preliminary Project Information Document

Satellite Map of the proposed MTHL

The scope of work will broadly include the design, construction, finance, operation and maintenance of an approximately 16.5 km six lanes bridge over sea between Sewri and Nhava on the mainland, with approximately 5.5 km long viaduct approaches on Sewri and Nhava ends, toll plaza, other bridges and culverts, provisions for traffic safety, environmental mitigation measures, electrical works, rescue centres, bird observatory, traffic control station and bridge instrumentation. The total length of the link is approximately 22 km. The Concessionaire shall be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the link. The estimated project cost is INR 8800 crores.


Project Benefits
MTHL will directly and indirectly lead to the betterment of MMR both from an economic and social perspective. Direct Benefits from MTHL

Decongestion of Mumbai Island and dispersal of population to Navi Mumbai region & beyond Development of mainland Savings in travel time for commuters Improved comfort and accessibility between the island and the mainland Reduced operating costs of vehicles due to lesser congestion Seamless movement of traffic from proposed Navi Mumbai airport

11 | P a g e

MMRDA MTHL Preliminary Project Information Document

Indirect Benefits from MTHL

Rationalization of real estate prices in Mumbai Accelerated economic development of Navi Mumbai and nearby regions Greater economic integration of Mumbai island with Navi Mumbai and extended regions of Pune, Goa, Panvel and Alibaug Environment improvement and reduced pollution levels Improved safety due to reduction in accidents Improvement in trade competitiveness through faster and improved logistics

Navi Mumbai is also well connected through rail and road links with Pune, Nasik and Thane, indicating the potential for the region to develop into a satellite city to Mumbai in a fashion similar to the emergence of Gurgaon and Noida as satellites to New Delhi. Further, MTHL would also provide faster and shorter connectivity for onward traffic bound to Goa (NH4B), Pune and further south. MTHL would also strengthen the connectivity of Mumbai Port and industrial areas located in southern part of Island City with JNPT, NH4B and Mumbai Pune Expressway thereby improving logistics and turnaround time for users.


Project Structure
MMRDA has decided to undertake construction, operation, maintenance of Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (the MTHL) from Sewri to Nhava in MMR (the Project) in State of Maharashtra, India through Public-Private Partnership (the PPP) on Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer (the DBFOT) basis. The Authority has decided to carry out the International Competitive Bidding Process for selection of a private entity to whom the Project may be entrusted for implementation on BOT basis. The concession period envisaged for the 6-lane project is for 45 years. The project shall be awarded to an entity offering the highest Premium, and where no Bidder is offering a Premium, the Bidder seeking the lowest Grant
