NEW DELHI: Godrej & Boyce and Godrej Properties will continue to develop a land parcel of Vikhroli owned by Godrej & Boyce. The announcement came a day after the Mumbai-based Godrej family decided to split their business interests. As per the settlement, Godrej & Boyce is being controlled and its affiliates will now be controlled by Jamshyd Godrej while Godrej Properties will be controlled by Adi Godrej.

While a big chunk of this land holding falls under ecologically sensitive mangroves and 300 acres are believed to be encroached, about 1,000 acres can be developed.

Jamshyd Godrej, Chairperson & MD, Godrej & Boyce, said, “The future development of Vikhroli presents a unique opportunity to create a holistic space in the metropolis of Mumbai where urban development and biodiversity co-exists harmoniously.
