The BMC is collating data for collecting fines from other mandals as well. A BMC official told the daily that they have collected data from 12 municipal wards out of which only Lalbaughcha Raja has been penalised.

The civic body will soon finalize the list of the remaining 12 wards.

Notably, BMC has imposed penalties on mandals in the past as well for creating potholes in Mumbai. In 2017, they were fined 4.86 lakh, while in 2015, they were penalised to the tune of 3.36 lakh, and in 2014, the committee was fined 5.56 lakhs, the daily added.
