The Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had announced a mall to be constructed for the savings groups during a divisional conference of the Women’s Savings Groups organised on 26 Feb, 2016 in Divisional Sports Complex. Soon after this the Public Works Department of Zilla Parishad had prepared proposal and the cost was assessed to be Rs 25 crores. This first women’s mall in state was to come up at Badkas Chowk in Central Nagpur on the Zilla Parishad land . The ground floor was to be parking and the upper two floor for the women’s mall.
