For first time ever, BMC cuts budget by Rs 12,000 crore 30.3.2017 mumbai
BMC chief Ajoy Mehta has clipped the wings of several departments A leaner, meaner BMC is setting the terms this year. For the second consecutive year, the country's richest municipal corporation has proposed a budget without any new tax or hike in existing taxes. BMC Commissioner Ajoy Mehta yesterday presented a budget of Rs 25,141.51 crore for 2017-18, a massive cut from last year's Rs 37,052 crore outlay. The unprecedented decrease is expected to have been done with the aim of making the budget more citizen-centric and realistic. The leaner budget has been attributed to a decrease in capital expenditure (funds allocated for big projects). In 2016-17, capital expenditure was estimated at Rs 12,957 crore, but this year, it has been brought down to Rs 8,127 crore. With this move, the BMC has toed the demands of both the Shiv Sena and the BJP of a realistic budget. Last week, mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar had written a letter to Mehta asking for the budget to be made more realistic. Not to be outdone, BJP ...

Despite the mercury rising in March, and temperatures in Mumbai touching 40 degree Celsius, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) says there will be no need of a water cut this summer. Last year there was a 15 percent cut due to water shortage. Sources in the BMC say that this year the chances of scarcity of water seem unlikely, though the heat wave has begun. The BMC budget states that the monsoon in 2016-17 was normal and so there shall be no water cuts. At present Mumbai gets 3,750 MLD of water. According to Ajoy Mehta, BMC Commissioner, the civic body is expecting an additional 265 MLD of water supply for Mumbai and if this year the monsoon is satisfactory then from October additional water - especially for the slums - can be supplied.
