The Central Railway has identified 17 vulnerable locations for waterlogging during the monsoon season. It has provided for around 140 pumps.

The vulnerable locations have been identified on the mainline which include Masjid Currey Road, Sion, Kurla, Thane, Dombivli. On the harbour line, the spots include Sewri, Wadala, Chunabhatti and Koparkhairane. As Mumbai escaped the majority of the damage due to Cyclone Nisarga, the city is now getting geared up for the monsoon season. The BMC had earlier warned that there could be a rise in monsoon related diseases, apart from the COVID-19 cases. The BMC has further advised the citizens to not ignore any symptoms and to self-medicate if necessary.

In the last week, following the Centre's lockdown extension in containment zones, Maharashtra too authorized revised lockdown guidelines for the new lockdown that is valid till June 30. In addition to the Centre's guidelines for reopening in phases, Maharashtra has imposed phase-wise reopening of activities in areas of MCGM (Mumbai), Municipal Corporations of Pune, Solapur, Aurangabad, Malegaon, Nashik, Dhule, Jalgaon, Akola, Amravati, and Nagpur.

The phase one of the “Mission Begin Again” which began from 3 June 2020 allows outdoor physical activities like cycling, jogging, running, walking, all the while maintaining social distancing. Self-employed people like plumbers, electricians, pest-control and technicians and all the government workplaces will function at 15 per cent strength or maximum 15 employees, whichever is more.

The phase two of the mission further allows all shops, markets, market areas to open except malls and market complexes from 9 am to 5 pm. Taxis, rickshaws, four-wheeler, two-wheelers are allowed with only essential I + 2.
