Hindustan Times 

In nearly three years as a civic reporter, my primary was to closely follow the developments of the city's civic body, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). I meticulously followed the developments of/in the corporation, from policy levels to day-to-day functioning, which impacts the city. In addition, I also kept a tab on work of NGOs and institutes working in the field of urban governance, planning and development.  I have covered some watershed developments in the city. The prominent story being city's development plan for 20 years that turned out to be ridden with gaping holes. The stories created such an impact that the vision blue print was scrapped and the state government intervened, directing the civic body to come up with a revised plan in a stipulated time period. 

I have also worked on longer and analytical, multiple parts series on rehabilitation of hawkers in the city, the waste management menace and the civic body's budget to name a few. In another multiple part series, I have highlighted by my reporting the lacunae in corporation's preparedness for monsoons that is known to bring the city to a grinding halt almost every year.

Trainee Reporter

Hindustan Times

As a trainee reporter, my responsibility was to cover a range of issues, from development in healthcare to transport to civic issues in Navi Mumbai, a satellite city adjoining Mumbai. Along with spot reporting, I have had the opportunity to work on long form stories and highlighted the pitiable transport facility of the corporation and hooliganism of various transport unions.
