Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation
Transformation of a Growing City to Vibrant Habitat
Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) faced an ongoing challenge in
fulfilling the vision for a twin city intended to alleviate congestion in India’s
Mumbai City. Developed in the 1970s with 20 self-contained nodes for 100,000
people each, Navi Mumbai was hailed as a model planned city. However, rapid
migration and unsustainable population growth had led to deteriorating public
services and infrastructure in the 344-square-kilometer area.
Bentley products enabled planning for transportation, water supply, sewerage,
solid waste management, and stormwater system improvements. The base
map with existing assets and utilities—which remains the single data source
for sharing interdepartmental data and updating lifecycle information—was
prepared in MicroStation. WaterGEMS, HAMMER, and SewerCAD were used
for project design and estimation.

NMMC undertook a $411 million planning initiative to improve and augment
the city infrastructure and provide a sustainable environment for its 2.8 million
citizens. The holistic and integrated approach included a development plan
with optimized lifecycle costs, establishing a link between asset creation and
management to ensure sustainable service delivery. MicroStation provided
the platform for the integrated base map that interoperates with various
engineering software applications and databases.
