Nagpur-Mumbai communication super expressway will be a reality soon as the bhoomi pujan of the same is being planned in January 2018. 

The function was scheduled in October but was delayed due to land acquisition problems.

Confirming that the land issue has been solved, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said, "Half of the land required will be acquired by us by October end or November 15 at the most. District collectors have given me extremely positive reports. The remaining half will be acquired by December".

 "A special purpose vehicle needs to be formed between Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) and Korea Expressway Corporation (KEC) for planning and execution of the expressway. The SPV will be formed by December end, Indian banks were equally eager to finance the project," he further added in an interview given to TOI.

The whole project will require about 9,364 hectares of land out of which 8,531 hectares of land is privately held, and the state government holds the other 833 hectares.

Till now, only 7 to 8% of private land has been acquired.

The land acquiring is still a huge problem for the government. It is said that the landowners in Nashik district are strongly opposing the project. Opposition parties and BJP's ally Shiv Sena have also come up in support of farmers protesting against the acquisition of their lands.
