Soon all the 15 wards of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will have a seeprate colours attached to them. As a part of its beautification initiative, BMC will identify an important chowk  within every ward and later revamp the identified spots.

In order to revamp major roads in every ward, the municipal corporation along with Collector's Office has drafted a special plan. The idea behind allocating a unique colour to every ward is to help the citizens easily understand and identify which ward they are in.

Currently, there are various major roads in Mumbai that consist of garbage thrown at either sides, wires hanging from electric poles, along with cars parked at the sides of the roads. Due to the parking issue, the citizens also face traffic jams at these routes.

Taking various factors in consideration, BMC plans to revamp such spots and install billboards describing the prominent locations in the area, along with signboards to help citizens with directions in the respective wards. The municipal corporation also plans to introduce high-tech traffic management systems to deal with the issue of congestion.

The plan for the same has been drafted by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's team of senior engineers. Accordingly, BMC has reserved up to ₹15 crore for the beautification project.

That being said, the civic body is looking to make a number of amends in the city. This year's BMC budget described a number of new changes, including the vision to convert Mumbai into a developed city by 2030 while also seeking to increase the Citizens Happiness Index by providing and improving the amenities provided to residents of the city.

BMC Commissioner Praveen Pardeshi had earlier announced bringing a 'Tourism Department' for the civic body and the beautification project is expected to be a boost to the tourism in the city.
