Kings Circle resident Nikhil Desai said in April he had file a Right to Information (RTI) seeking details of manhole covers in F-North ward which have been missing. "To my surprise, on 12 roads alone, 20 manhole covers are missing. When I checked with the local ward office, I was told that the stock of covers was over and they had asked for more from the department concerned. Why can't we standardize the covers to one size? We can also ask other corporations for covers considering we cannot wait to let a mishap happen and then take measures. I had asked for this information in April but unfortunately still covers on several roads in Matunga are either missing or have concrete covers on the hole which is open," he said.

Local municipal authority of Matunga can not escape from their responsibility but since he Municipal Commissioner of Mumbai is the chief executive officer of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation and the Mayor is the head of the house, their role is largely ceremonial and almost all powers are vested in the Commissioner both are responsible for such bad condition. The Municipal Commissioner maintains Mumbai, and thus has responsibilities over the sewage system, the school divisions, power companies, roads, and other aspects of local infrastructure.

Some body must put application under life and liberty seeking reasons for undue delay and not keeping sufficient covers as stock, and actions taken for such thefts of public property.

      RTI exposes 481 transfer requests by mumbai police officials written by MLAs and ministers in just 19 months.
       
      the Mumbai police commissioner and the Maharashtra director-general of police have received a record 481 written recommendations for transfers from MLAs and ministers in just 19 months.
       
      From March to September this year, the DGP got 99 recommendations for transfers, of which 30 have come from the chief minister himself. Some of the recommendations have also come from Deputy CM R R Patil.
       
      This was exposed following queries filed under the Right to Information Act, 2005.
       
      ecommendations for transfers had in fact come down in 2004, after the joint commissioner of police (administration) issued a strict warning to 71 police officers and 64 constables for trying to use political clout.
       
      Also, two departmental circulars were issued stating that any violation of the rule 413 rule of the Police Manual would be strictly dealt with.
       
      Rule 413 states that "government servants are forbidden to approach officials of other departments or non-official people for support and redress. They are liable for disciplinary action if MLAs or non-official persons approach the government on their behalf," the rule says.
