The contentious Mumbai Port expansion plan, the modernisation, unlocking of 900 acres of land and development of eastern waterfront is expected to get the Centre's nod soon.

CAG report raises a stink over city's sewage system 11.8.2017 DNA: Popular News
Despite the talk of Swacch Bharat and making India open defecation free (ODF), the sewage treatment and management system in Mumbai leaves a lot to be desired as revealed by a performance audit by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG). The report has pointed to several shortfalls in the sewage waste management systems of the BMC, including around half of the sewage being discharged into the sea or water bodies without being treated, around 400 people using one toilet seat and a deficit of toilet seats in slums. The CAG's report on local bodies for the year ended on March 31, 2016, was submitted to the state legislature on Friday. This report noted that Mumbai generated 2,146 million litres per day (MLD) of sewage, of which only 1,098 MLD is treated. The remaining 1,048 MLD (49%) sewage was outside the sewage collection system and was discharged into the sea or creeks without being treated as on July 2016. "This combined with poor treatment quality of sewage at four of the seven WWTFs (waste water ...
