1. Soon, the area around Gateway of India in Mumbai will get a revamp. The redevelopment has been approved by the Mumbai Heritage Conservation Committee (MHCC). The Grade-I heritage structure belongs from the British era and it is considered as one of the most prominent tourist attractions in Mumbai.
Built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to Mumbai, the Gateway of India overlooks the Arabian Sea.

As per the sources, the project will cost around INR 20 crores.
