The Dharavi redevelopment project continues to face problems.
The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada) has invited fresh bids from construction companies for its pilot project at sector 5 in Dharavi.
The earlier bid was cancelled as Mhada had received applications from only two companies—Shirke Construction and Neptune Group.
The decision was announced on Friday by minister of state for housing Sachin Ahir during a press meet. “With Shirke, the only bidder submitting financial bids, the lack of competition forced us to call fresh bids. We hope reputed companies show interest,” Ahir said.
The revamp plan, mooted in 2004, has been plagued with problems over the years and even the global tenders to select developers were scrapped last year.
