As monsoon is just a couple of months away, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has started its pre-monsoon preparations. On Monday, April 13, BMC chaired a multi-agencies pre-monsoon meeting.

In the meeting, BMC chief Iqbal Singh Chahal has directed the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRCL) and Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) to immediately clear construction debris and ensure that floodwater doesn’t get accumulated during monsoons.

He also reviewed pre-monsoon work including nullah cleaning in Railway and BMC limits. Chahal also directed the power distribution companies to audit the city’s power distribution system.

After torrential rain in the city last year, areas like Lamington Road, Nair Hospital, Agripada, Chinchpokli, Lalbaug, Worli Seaface and Worli BDD chawl were among the new waterlogging spots.

The meeting, held via video conferencing, was attended by Central and Western Railways, Indian Navy, National Disaster Response Authority, Indian Meteorological Department, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority, MHADA, Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation, Public Works Department of State Government, BEST, various power distribution companies and additional municipal and deputy municipal commissioners of BMC.

Many old buildings in Mumbai are under the jurisdiction of MHADA. Hence, the buildings which are dangerous should be vacated and for this, the cooperation of the police force should be sought, the commissioner instructed the MHADA administration.

Besides, all the power distribution companies should take all the necessary measures against the backdrop of rains and also conduct the necessary audit of the power distribution system.

Pre-monsoon works in Mumbai are undertaken in April and May every year, besides various departments, BMC is in a rush to complete the work of repairing roads, sanitation, water network in low lying areas by or before May.
