The Bombay Municipal Corporation in Mumbai issued tenders worth Rs 6,079 crore for the concretisation of 400 kilometres of roads. A budget of Rs 200 crore more has been allocated for the project, according to the statement released by BMC officials on Thursday. 

The previous tender at the cost of Rs 5,806 has been reversed due to a lack of interest. Currently, three for western suburbs and one each for the eastern suburbs -- a total of five tenders are included in the group, the statement read. 

With the aim to achieve potholes-free roads within two years, the tendering process has been initiated by BMC in August 2022.

The tender for roads of the island city is at the cost of Rs 1,233 crore and for the eastern suburbs, it is Rs 846 crore, meanwhile, the three tenders for the western suburbs are at the cost of Rs 1631 crore, Rs 1145 crore and Rs 1223 crore, a BMC official told.

Earlier, Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray had contended that tenders costing more than Rs 5,000 crore to concretise Mumbai's potholed roads were later discarded. 

Meanwhile, a BMC official said that road repairs are undertaken from 1 October to 1 June but the process of re-tendering has not been implemented yet.
