Mumbai based builder has an ambitious plan to construct world's tallest building in Surat city, Gujarat.

The Mumbai based real estate developer, Mr. Harihara Mahapatra, has shown interest in constructing a 1.2 km tall tower, what he claims would be the world's tallest.

His proposed tower would come up in the Dream City project at Khajod.  Constructing the building would require an investment of about Rs.1,200 crore.  His firm has sought an area of 1 sq. km.

The proposal is now in the hands of Gujarat Infrastructure Development Board (GIDB).  The company is planning to create this iconic structure through new patented technology.  According to a top government official, "It is an ambitious project that requires clearances from number of agencies like Airport Authority of India and others".
