Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal presented the civic budget on Wednesday. The BMC on Wednesday unveiled the Rs 39,038.83 crore budget for the year 2021-22.

The total budget estimates for the next financial year are 16.74 per cent more than the last fiscal when it had presented a budget of Rs 33,441 crore.

BMC's education budget has also increased to Rs 2945.78 crores from last year's Rs 2,944.59 crore, showing a negligible rise. The civic body said that it started 40 YouTube channels for online education during COVID-19 pandemic.

Facing a massive "financial crisis" due to covid-19 pandemic, the BMC claimed to have spent only 48 percent of its budget allocated in 2020-21 fiscal year on various development projects, however, several big-ticket projects such as waste to energy plant at Deonar, the Tansa cycling tracks, Mumbai Sewage Disposal Project (MSDP), Goregaon-Mulund Link Road (GMLR) are developing at snail's pace.
