The commercial and economic development of any city depends largely on the enthusiastic participation of its business community. With an intent to woo the commercial enterprises to the new city of Navi Mumbai, the government began negotiations with the Federation of Association of Maharashtra (FAM), an umbrella organization representing the collective interests of the commercial and business organization in Maharashtra. One of the issues discussed, was the reasons for the disinclination on the part of the business community to relocate their enterprises. After further deliberation, the government accepted the FAM’s suggestion to establish a network of imminent facilities viz, housing societies, educational institutions and healthcare services.
FAM took upon itself the task of establishing a suitable environment for the business community to migrate to Navi Mumbai.
