Both Navi Mumbai police and Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) have made all arrangements to host the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches at Dr D Y Patil stadium in Nerul. A total of 20 matches will be played at the stadium between March 27 to May 18.
While NMMC has created over 5000 parking spaces, the Navi Mumbai police will depute around 1000 personnel to ensure smooth execution of the event that will be watched across many countries.
According to Navi Mumbai police, 3 DCPs, 10 ACPs, 25 inspectors, over 700 other police personnel and around 300 traffic cops will be deputed on match days.
