In view of rising traffic woes due to abandoned vehicles, Mahesh Bedekar had filed a petition in Bombay High Court. During a hearing, the HC directed the BMC to constitute a cell and provide toll free numbers, Whatsapp number and email ID for the public to register their complaints.

The cell, expected to start soon, will work from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm and the languages offered will be English, Hindi and Marathi. The cell will provide all information about the parking issues, besides traffic-related information.
