Mumbai, May 2: The Bombay High Court on Monday directed the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai and other civic authorities to repair the roads in flood-prone areas of the city before the onset of monsoon.

After the MCGM lawyer K K Singhvi assured the court that like every year, the corporation had a plan ready for tackling the monsoon woes, the judges recorded his statement and further said that repair work must be carried out with "utmost urgency".

The order was passed by division bench of Chief Justice Swatanter Kumar and Justice S C Dharmadhikari on a bunch of PILs filed by Sandip Rane and others.

Petitioners' lawyer Mihir Desai had urged that court give a specific directive about pre-monsoon repair of the roads.

The next hearing of the case is scheduled for June 14.

MCGM, at the earlier hearing, had submitted that a complete overhaul of the entire road network in the city would take five to seven years.
