5. Mahim Residents Fume Over Open Burning of Toxic Waste

While the debate over falling air quality may have been a recent phenomenon, residents of Mahim have been complaining about the same for years now. Their specific grouse is with the open air burning of plastic and electronic waste by ragpickers near the Mahim-Sion Link Road, which leaves a heavy black smoke hovering over the immediate neighbourhood for hours.

Complaints to authorities, including BMC and Maharashtra Pollution Control Board(MPCB), have so far went unheard as officials claim it is not their responsibility. According to the residents, ragpickers collect waste from nearby scrap dealers and burn them next to the pipeline running parallel to the railway tracks in an effort to collect metal from it.

6. Ceiling Crashes in Goregaon Building Caught in Court Battle

A major mishap was averted when a large portion of the ceiling of a garment shop in Saket Shopping Centre at Goregaon West crashed to the ground on Saturday afternoon, triggering panic. Fortunately, no one was injured as there were no customers at the shop, Sai Collection, and staff, too, was outside at the time.

The ground plus two-storey residential-cum-shopping structure, which is less than 300 metres away from the crowded railway station, has been declared unsafe by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). Accordingly, water and power supply has been discontinued. But, a few shop owners and residents continue to occupy the premises. On Saturday, when the ceiling collapsed, nearby locals feared further damage to the building, and immediately called the fire brigade and civic authorities to inspect it.
