BMC now has come forward to help BEST which is running in losses. However, BMC mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar said that state and central government should also help BEST. He said that he will discuss the matter with the party group leaders. As the mayor promised, a meeting was conducted between party group leaders on Monday but no decision was made. The final meeting will take place on 29 March where BMC will present the final strategy of helping BEST financially.
BMC decided to give interest-free loans to cash strapped BEST. But as BEST did not prepare any budget about earnings and expenditure, the meeting regarding interest-free loan was pushed ahead.
