The residents of Thane are to face water cuts on Friday, September 18, while the municipal corporation completes work connected with the under-construction Metro in the city and undertake other maintenance work in several areas.

On Tuesday, September 15, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) announced the same.  The shutdown is to permit workers to work on Line 4 of the Mumbai Metro near Thane’s busy Majiwada junction. The TMC has also asked the residents to store water and use it judiciously for two days as the demand for water would be high as the supply resumes in the areas which could further affect the flow of the water.

On the other hand, as per reports, the patients suffering from coronavirus in Thane and Panvel districts have increased in the last few days, where more than two hundred patients are being reported in both the cities, eventually raising concerns for the officials.

As a result, in lieu of the surge in cases of COVID-19, the Thane Municipal Commissioner had announced an 18-day lockdown due to the increase in the number of patients, despite the 'Mission Begin Again' initiative. However, officials observed that the cases gradually declined during the lockdown. Around 400-500 cases were being reported earlier, and a significant drop was witnessed due to the lockdown.
