Mumbai: BMC to commence Mahul pumping station work

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will soon commence the work of the pumping station at Mahul creek. The pumping station is essential to reduce flooding in Kings Circle, Gandhi Market, Nehru Nagar, Dadar, Sion, Wadala, Matunga, Sindhi Society Chembur and the railway line.

They have chosen a new plot for the project, and the municipal corporation will exchange one of its plots for the land. The first two pumping stations were built in 2010 at Irla and Haji Ali, and the construction of the other station started at Gazdarbandh in 2019.

The civic body finalized the contractor for the Mogra pumping station in March 2021. However, the one at Mahul was still on paper due to a delay in land acquisition.

The BMC has now finalized a plot that belongs to M/s Ajmera Realty and Infrastructure India Ltd., and there will be an MoU with the owner. Following this, Term Deposit Receipt (TDR) will be transferred after the Maharashtra government's approval. 

The officials have stated that land is spread across 15,006 sq. metres, and the administration will exchange one of its lands of 13,390 sq. metres. For the remaining 1616 sq. metres of land, they will allot TDR to the owner.

The new plot is more convenient for the pumping station as it is adjacent to a nullah, and does not require another storm water drainage.
