Surprisingly, no action was taken despite lodging complaints in writing to Mayor, NMC Commissioner, Assistant Commissioner and concerned Water Supply Department authorities. The problem was also raised in the NMC meeting still the problem was not resolved. There was a demand to lay a new pipeline replacing the age-old one. But here also no action was taken and the old pipeline continues to supply polluted water. Finally, Ward 44 Corporator Malutai Tanaji Wanve reached Nandanwan Police Station and lodged a complaint against OCW officials. She asked the police to register an FIR against them

Gaikar immediately summoned OCW officials Pradip Karangane, Nikhil Satbane and Thakur to police station. The OCW officials were handed over a sample of polluted water being supplied to the Ward 44 areas.  Gaikar assured that if the OCW officials failed to resolve the problem then the police will register an offence against them and take action accordingly.
