State Gov to Upgrade Water Supply and Sanitation of Mumbai
"The state government of Maharashtra is working on a plan to upgrade Mumbai’s water supply and sanitation department to be on par with other international cities. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will submit a report wherein the 15 current state of water supply and sanitation will be mapped. The mapping process will involve a survey asking citizens about water supply and sanitation, as well as their suggestions. The report is due to be submitted by June. The mapping process will take approximately one year after starting."

People Migrating From Farther to Live in Mumbai
Within Mahashtra—the western Indian state in which Mumbai is the capital—more than 74 percent of the migration is from rural to urban areas. Sixty percent of all migration within the state is into Mumbai from four nearby districts, Ratnagiri, Satara, Pune and Raigad. However, according to Strategic Foresight Group Asian Horizons, this trend is changing rapidly.
“The last census in 2001 revealed that the migration from districts farther away from the city, i.e. the other parts of Maharashtra, such as Latur, Nanded, Solapur, Parbhani, Jalna, Osmanabad and Beed is on the increase.”
