Mumbai:  May 18, 2014

Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray,  and SP leader Abu Azmi are among those named as water bill defaulters in Mumbai according to the BMC.

According to a report in PTI, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) recently made a list of defaulters public on its website. The list names a number of high profile citizens such as former Maharashtra Chief Minister AR Antulay for non-payment of dues.

“The list has been prepared based on information received from 24 ward offices and comprises names of all defaulters from commercial, industrial and domestic connections categories,” a civic official said. The official went on to say that the BMC would take action depending on the amount due.

When contacted, a source close to the Thackeray family told PTI that they would check into bills pending.

On the other hand, SP leader Azmi said, “There is no bill pending from my side. Due to the mismanagement of the civic body they might have not sent the bill. I have checked with the manager of my hotel and no bill is pending. If at all the bill is pending I will pay it within a day. I will send notice to the BMC for including me in the defaulters list.”
