The state government plans to build the Ferris wheel at a vacant plot in Bandra Reclamation, provided if there are no coastal regulatory zone issues. The project will get implemented by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA). 'London Eye' is the observation wheel on the banks of the River Thames. It is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom.
