Music college in mumbai: The Maharashtra government has granted a 7,000 square metre area at the University of Mumbai's Kalina campus for the proposed international music college and museum in honour of iconic musician and Bharat Ratna awardee Lata Mangeshkar.
The state legislature has chosen to build an international music school on the Kalina Campus. The proposed institution will be known as the Bharat Ratna Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar International College of Music and Museum.
The state administration has decided to allot 7,000 square metres for the construction of the Music college.
The Mangeshkar family's vision for the worldwide college of music is what inspired the committee's establishment.
The veteran singer intended to build a music school in Mumbai in honour of her father, Dinanath Mangeshkar. She was even given a place at Mumbai University's Kalina campus by Aaditya Thackeray, the country's former environment minister, and she liked it.
However, Lata Mangeshkar passed away on February 6 as she took her last breath at the Breach Candy Hospital. Then-chief minister Uddhav Thackeray made the decision to develop a plan after her death.
