Maharashtra cabinet clears land transfer for Ambedkar memorial
Monday November 25, 2013 8:09 PM, IANS

The cabinet Monday approved the transfer of Indu Mill land in Mumbai towards construction of a memorial for Dalit icon B.R. Ambedkar, sources said.

According to the sources, the central government will transfer the prime piece of land to the Maharashtra government, a long-pending demand of political parties of the western state.

The ashes of Ambedkar, the architect of India's constitution, are buried at Chaitya Bhoomi, which lies near the plot of land of India United Mill, popularly known as the Indu Mill, which comes under the control of the National Textiles Corporation.

Various political parties, especially Dalit organisations, wanted the issue to be settled by Dec 6, which happens to be Ambedkar's death anniversary.
