Heavy rain for the third consecutive day on Monday in Mumbai has disrupted life in the metropolis.
Both road and rail traffic has collapsed because of water-logging in low lying areas. There are traffic jams in both western and eastern suburbs.
Western Railway Chief PRO Shailendra Kumar said: "We have stopped the trains on all four tracks for the time being."
All government offices have declared a half-day. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation also has decided to let its employees go home after the lunch break.
