High court asks BMC to grant permission to Mumbai Marathon

Well, the usual bickering is going on for the upcoming Tata Mumbai Marathon on Jan 21st, between BMC and the marathon organizers. BMC is asking Procam to pay Rs 3.66 crore towards the “land fees, displaying advertisements and hoardings, and security deposit”. Procam last year paid about Rs 26 lakh to the BMC for a similar event.

Trying to mitigate the issue, the high court bench  has directed that as an interim measure, the BMC must grant permission for the event if Procam paid Rs 1.05 crore — Rs 79 lakh towards the rent of the land and Rs 26 lakh as security deposit — by Monday (January 15).
