In his post, Bathena said, “The construction work at the Khar station, which falls in the H-West ward, is being done without dust mitigation measures in place. This is a breach of the Bombay High Court orders. The ward office must take action.” In response, Assistant Municipal Commissioner (H-West) Vinayak Vispute said, “I have sent ward officers on the spot for inspection. We will send a notice to railways for not following norms laid down by the BMC for air pollution mitigation.” 

After the High Court's directive, the civic body is strictly monitoring if the trucks carrying debris are covered with tarpaulin or green clothes. A fine of Rs5,000 is being levied on the vehicles not following the norm. Till Monday, the BMC collected Rs4,51,692 in the form of penalties.
