Coveted covers

A most stolen object? Take a guess
It's manhole covers, nothing less
Apparently every morn
More covers are gone
Leaving BMC in great distress!

The most stolen object in Mumbai: Get the story here


  1. actually manhole covres are now being made of RCC(concrete) which has no resale value are cheaper, last longer and r heavy. if the BMC is using the old iron covers,,then i m confused..

  2. Yes Ankur, they are! apparently these iron covers are sometimes covered in concrete but that has not helped. Actually Calcutta too still uses iron covers in most places.
