Every year, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation spends crores of rupees in order to clean the nullahs and avoid waterlogging in the areas. However, despite the efforts made by the municipal corporation, the local residents tend to throw garbage in the nullahs and thus, making an addition to their troubles during monsoon. 

Accordingly, in order to curb the issue, BMC Commissioner Praveen Pardeshi declared that people throwing garbage in the nullahs will be fined. On Tuesday, the BMC Commissioner had taken a meeting for finding options to deal with waterlogging during monsoon.
