Mumbai: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) presented its budget for the fiscal 2024-25 on Friday at its headquarters in Mumbai. The total budget announced for the fiscal year 2024-25 is Rs. 59,954 crores. This amount is 10.5% more than last year’s total budget allocation of Rs 54,256.07 crore.

The estimated revenue income for the financial year 2024-25 is proposed to Rs. 35,749.03 crore which is Rs. 2459 crore more than budget estimates of 2023-24. A Surplus budget of Rs. 58.22 crore is announced.

Like last year, additional municipal commissioners presented the budget to civic commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal, who is functioning as the BMC administrator since March 2022 after the term of corporators ended.

Generally, the municipal commissioner presents the budget to the BMC’s standing committee, but as the term of corporators came to an end on March 7, 2022, this is the second year when the civic body’s budget will be presented to the administrator.

In a statement on Wednesday, the BMC informed that this year additional municipal commissioner (projects) P Velarasu will present the budget estimates for the financial year 2024-25 to Chahal at the civic headquarters in south Mumbai on Friday.

Before that additional municipal commissioner (eastern suburbs) Ashwini Bhide will present the education department’s budget estimates for the next fiscal to the administrator-cum-commissioner, it said.

The budget of the richest civic body in the country stood at Rs 52,619.07 crore for the year 2023-24, which was 14.5 per cent more than the previous fiscal.
