In front of the college building, the project construction is in full flow and the machines are creating a nuisance to everyone. Classes haven’t been functioning smoothly because of the noise and students can’t even converse with each other as the machines are too loud.

Professors and students are baffled by this constant disturbance and are not sure how they’re going to conduct lectures going forward.

The college has two buildings – Anand Bhavan and Budhha Bhavan and both these buildings fall into the heritage category as they’re about 100 years old. There are cracks on the century-old buildings and the Metro-3 project is doing more damage than just noise pollution.

One entrance to this building has been blocked by the police and if there’s any kind of emergency due to the Metro-3 project, people inside the building could be trapped there.


We are not against development and growth but development needs to be done in the right manner. They need to make sure people and the surroundings are not affected by it. We are going to write to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and request for a solution for this situation,” Dr Umaji Mhaske, Principal of Siddharth College of Arts, Science and Commerce.

Students are protesting against the Metro-3 construction and they’re severely getting affected by it. The college is going to notify Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, BMC and also Mumbai Police.
