Mumbai, Jun 13 (UNI) There will be no flooding in Juhu Vile Parle Development (JVPD) scheme next year, after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) instals a pumping station there, Additional Municipal Commissioner R A Rajiv said today.
Addressing a news conference here, Mr Rajiv said the work of installing the pumping station will start in May 2009. After that, there will be no case of water clogging or flooding in the area.
The JVPD Scheme, situated in North-West Mumbai, is one of the posh localities in the city, where most of the celebrities live.
''The area is very much below the sea level and hence is affected in the rainy season,'' he said.
The additional municipal commissioner was referring to the celebrity residents, who met Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh regarding the flooding caused due to heavy rains.
Filmstar Amitabh Bachchan, writing about the area's situation in the rains on his blog, said the JVPD was a low-lying area with high profile residents and had taken up the issue in many ways.
