While MCGM might have inaugurated the Mahim underpass at a very grand scale but present at time even the MCGM Commissioner was not satisfied with its development procedure. A fine example of how MCGM grants proposals worth in crores without analyzing the nitty-gritty’s of the development procedure and its exact strategy, is that of the Mahim underpass. Constructed at a budget of Rs 70 crore even the MCGM Commissioner Dr. Jairaj Pathak was unsatisfied with its development. He expressed that the unfinished work of the underpass might make it less used by the people ultimately failing its entire purpose. Now the million dollar question is will this unfinished underpass may see less of pedestrians and more as a hub of anti-social activities. Something that only time will tell.
