“The project is to be completed within a time frame of 40 months as per the plan prepared by Project Management Consultant. The delay in execution of the project planned for the construction of the grand memorial of Chhatrapati Shivaji is due to technical difficulty in the plan,” he added.

Replying to supplementaries over delay in Bhoomi Pujan for the proposed memorial, Fadnavis said a suitable date is yet to be finalised.
