The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has spent only 37 per cent of its capital budget for various infrastructure works, in nine months of the financial year. The expenditure is majorly on projects ongoing for the past few years. Of the total expenditure, 20 per cent is only on the coastal road. Another 25 per cent is on city roads and bridges, and 10 per cent has been given to the BEST. Other infrastructure work proposed in the budget 2022-23 was hit due to various reasons.
