THE BMC has received over 3,800 suggestions and objections from citizens to the Existing Land Use (ELU) maps to plan for the city’s development plan (DP) for 2014-34.

The responses have poured in over past three months,after BMC extended deadline for making suggestions and objections several times.

Though the civic administration did not confirm whether the deadline will be further extended,about 15 per cent of the suggestions are likely to be implemented in the new development plan.

While 1,200 of responses have been scrutinsed by the administration,officials said rectifications in the existing DP maps could be made based on only 180 of these.

ELU will form the base for the preparation of DP.
