According to the official, there are so many reasons for this condition of the road.

Immediately thereafter, in 2015, the road scam had come to light, raising questions over the expenditure. Bad roads are the major problem within the city of Mumbai. The condition of the road is that the same for the decades there are so many big potholes on the road. The condition of the road is not improving.

According to the official, there are so many reasons for this condition of the road. First, there is a lack of coordination Between the BMC and the agencies. So when the roads are made after a year or the 6 months roads are dug for laying the cables.

In the year 2021, the number of pothole complaints has risen to 437 as compared with 315 in 2020.

The second reason is that no major road construction company comes forward to take up works as the tender size is tiny for them.

People traveling daily for work have to face the problem.
