A textile museum will soon be established in Mumbai over an area of 10 acres, said the Maharashtra state government in a recent notification. The state government also stated in the notification that it has sanctioned six structures in India United Mill nos. 2 and 3 as heritage structures and the entire plot of the mill as a heritage precinct.

The municipal corporation of Greater Mumbai had requested the government to issue suitable directions to permit the land under the heritage structures proposed to be retained for textile museum as part of recreation ground (RG) share and to develop the textile museum at the site, according to the notification.

The government agreed to the request and said, “The land under the heritage structures is proposed to be retained for textile museum as part of recreation ground.”
