“Heavy rains on July 26-27 had caused flooding and wreaked havoc in Kalyan and Badlapur towns of Thane district. The government will undertake a survey of damage caused to the houses and give adequate compensation to the affected people in these towns”, said CM Devendra Fadnavis at a function in Murbad on Tuesday.

In addition, funds will be made available for repair of roads damaged in the flood in Kalyan and Badlapur”, he added.
