The bhoomipujan of the Rs46,000 crore Nagpur-Mumbai communication super expressway will be held in January 2018. The function was slated to be held in October but was delayed due to land acquisition problems.
Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis told the media on Sunday that land was not a problem anymore for the project. “Half of the land required will be acquired by us by October end or November 15 at the most. District collectors have given me extremely positive reports. The remaining half will be acquired by December,” he added.

According to Fadnavis, South Korean government was ready to finance the project. “A special purpose vehicle needs to be formed between Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) and Korea Expressway Corporation (KEC) for planning and execution of the expressway. The SPV will be formed by December end,” he said, adding that Indian banks were equally eager to finance the project.
