Mumbai - The BMC means business. The city will be turned pothole free shortly, municipal commissioner Ajoy Mehta told the civic standing committee today. The administration has identified spots that are chronically plagued by potholes during the monsoon and necessary steps will be undertaken to rectify the problem, he said. An outlay of Rs 64 crore has been earmarked for the project and the tenders will be floated in the next few days. The BMC has ensured all permissions are in place so that the election code of conduct does not hamper the works, Mehta added.
