85 footpaths fixed under the new challenge

85 footpaths fixed under the new challenge

After ending the pothole challenge, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) come up with another innovative challenge called as the Footpath challenge. It has been over a month for this challenge and it has resulted in 85 pavements being fixed in this time frame.

This footpath challenge was announced by Kiran Dighavkar, Assistant Commissioner of G/North as a citizen first initiative. They had set up a whatsapp number and constituted a team of five people comprising of a supervisor, assistant and three labourers who will help in fixing the footpath that need repair.

Citizens of Shivaji Park, Dadar and Mahim could report footpaths which are in a bad condition on a WhatsApp group and the action on these was taken in 24-48 hours. This was slightly different from the pothole challenge that BMC had launched. Under the Pothole challenge, BMC urged people to report a pothole to the authorities and they will be awarded ₹500 if the same isn't filled within 24 hours. However, in the case of footpath challenge, there was no cash prize available.

Do you think that BMC should come out with any more of such challenge in the near future or extend the ones that they had? Tweet in your suggestions to @MumbaiLiveNews on Twitter.
