Monsoon preparedness: Mumbai civic body launches hotline for consulates

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has launched a separate phone number for consulates across the city during emergencies. The decision for a separate hotline was taken after 26 representatives from 13 consulates met Mumbai’s disaster management team of the BMC last month to discuss monsoon preparedness.

The civic body has also created a WhatsApp group to deliver regular updates. The WhatsApp group is expected to provide updates on traffic diversions, rainfall, and routes to avoid, among other things.
