MUMBAI MAROONED – An Enquiry into Mumbai’s Floods 2005

CAT has convened the “Concerned Citizens’ Commission – an Enquiry into Mumbai’s floods 2005”.  The CCC report is based on public hearings held in some of the worst affected parts of Mumbai like Jari – Mari, Govandi, Saki Naka, Kurla. The report was released on July 26, 2006, one year after the floods.

The main objectives of this report were:

  1. To develop a reliable picture of the floods in Greater Mumbai and document what actually took place, the extent of damage to lives and dignity of persons, along with a detailed examination of property loss and damage, linked critically to the issue of relief and compensation.
  2. To determine the causes and factors that led to the flooding, including the role of the state executive, government and administration in implementing the Disaster Management Plan
  3. To understand the role of the MCGB and the State police in pre-empting, containing and controlling damage to life and property
  4. To recommend a set of measures to better anticipate natural calamities and to minimize their impact; and to ensure that Disaster Management Plan is implemented effectively.
  5. To identify people responsible for inaction and hold them accountable.
  6. To ensure effective citizen participation in the planning of the city and in disaster management.
