  • Trees continue to fall even though the BMC spends crores on them

It seems that the BMC has not learned a lesson from the Chembur tree fall which claimed a woman’s life. Till now, the BMC has spent INR 31.55 Cr for trimming branches, yet 1200 branches  or the whole tree has come down. This has claimed lives of three people and has injured four people.

Two years ago, the BMC had appointed independent contractors to trim and prune trees for which they spend INR 63 crore. From June to 25 July 2017, the BMC has pruned 334 trees in Mumbai, 325 trees in central suburbs and 665 trees in western suburbs.
