BMC headquarters, CST to get selfie points; Asian Age

India – Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (formerly Victoria Terminus)

It has been decided that a viewing gallery be constructed over the subway between the CST and BMC buildings.

Mumbai: The iconic Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) headquarters and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) in Fort will now get ‘selfie points’, in a bid to boost tourism. The BMC has noticed several tourists click pictures of themselves with these buildings in the background, which are synonymous with the identity of the city.
