Palava City Management Association

Intelligent city management

Designed to suit the modern lifestyle, Palava is meticulous in its planning and foresight. What's more, it's run by a qualified group of professionals and citizens alike who have set effective management systems to ensure the smooth functioning of the city.

PCMA oversees a range of operations as below:

Energy and Water Management

Safety and Security

Transportation Management

Waste Management

Energy and Water Management


In addition to a steady supply of water from government agencies and nearby natural sources, Palava has partnered with companies like General Electric (GE) to reuse 100% waste water for landscaping, cooling, and others non potable uses. The city has also implemented rainwater harvesting measures and maintains the water- table to ensure sustainability.

To ensure near uninterrupted and stable power supply, the city has entered into an agreement with MSEDCL (Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd.). The city will also use smart prepaid meters that will allow citizens to monitor their electricity usage, tariff, and get alerts. Almost 10% of the electricity for Palava’s public spaces will be generated through solar power. A solar power plant of 1.4 MW capacity extendable to 1.8 MW is implemented to power the retail hub of the city. The roof of Lodha World School has a rooftop solar and most of streetlights are either solar-powered or LED.

Safety and Security


An intelligent 4-tier security and monitoring system that includes everything from electronic access systems and fire alarms to CCTV surveillance and street-level panic buttons is present at Palava. Currently, over 700+ CCTV cameras help maintain the safety levels of the city.

Transportation Management


- Palava has a range of processes in place to ensure that none of its many roads are ever congested.

- The Palava Shuttle Service offers its citizens bus services to major work zones including Thane, Vashi, Powai, BKC, Lower Parel and more. Shuttle      services are also provided to and from the nearest railway stations, including Dombivli and Ghansoli. Uber and Ola are easily available within the city.

- The fleet management system ensures safety and efficient operation of bus services, waste disposal trucks and emergency response vehicles.

- The parking management system ensures that reserved parking slots are not encroached upon. There are separate parking areas for visitors.

- System enablers help predict traffic and inform road users about alternatives through communication channels and digital signage to prevent congestion.

Waste Management


Palava aims to create a smart waste management which view waste as a resource and ensures that less than 5% waste goes to the landfill. Separate bins are provided in the city for recyclable and non-recyclable waste. A dedicated large-scale solid waste transfer station and processing plant is being set-up to convert all organic waste into manure or biogas for electricity generation.

By 2020 the biogas plant in Palava will generate 600 KWH of electricity per day which is equivalent to a 0.2 MW power plant.
