Mumbai: Soon, you will pay Rs 60 to Rs 300 for garbage collection!

You might have to pay for garbage collection soon, as municipal corporations will charge a monthly amount for the same from individuals (houses), commercial establishments, educational institutes etc.

The Maharashtra state government’s Urban Development Department issued a Government Resolution (GR) on December 19, saying municipal corporations have to submit objections to it within 15 days. The notification has acted on the directions of the ministry of environment, forest and climate change, which on April 8, 2016, issued the Solid Waste Management rules, 2016.
