The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has announced a 25 per cent discount on fees for women at its four functional swimming pools on the occasion of International Women’s Day. Deputy Commissioner Kishore Gandhi confirmed this. Depending on the type of swimming pool, the annual fee ranges from Rs 8,000 to Rs 10,100.  

After discount, the annual fee for large swimming pools will be Rs 7,700 instead of Rs 10,100. Whereas the annual fee for small swimming pools will be Rs 6,080 instead of Rs 8,000. A discount scheme of 25 per cent has also been implemented in quarterly and monthly charges in the same way. Sessions from 11 am to 12 pm and 5 pm to 6 pm are reserved for women. A BMC official said that despite reserve sessions the women’s response is low. “We want to encourage them with this concession,” the official said.
