A day after heavy downpour and flooding, life in Mumbai was back on track on Saturday morning with train services being restored on all the three suburban lines, though more rains have been forecast for Saturday.
Ignoring the drizzle, men and women streamed into suburban stations around the sprawling metro to head for their offices and other places of work which remained shut on Friday.
However, the Maharashtra government has directed all schools and colleges in the city and neighbouring Thane district to remain closed on Saturday.
A statement issued by Central and Western Railways said that all suburban services were running as per normal schedule, including the Harbour line and Trans-Harbour line on Central Railway.
On Friday, heavy rains pummelled the country's financial capital and its suburbs during which two persons were electrocuted. Some 283 mm of rain, which is normally received over 10 days, was received in just 24 hours.
Normal life was brought to a grinding halt with several areas being waterlogged and local train services cancelled, leaving thousands of commuters stranded.
The met department has warned of heavy rains in the next 24 hours
"We have advised people to remain indoors on Saturday," Mumbai's civic body chief Ajoy Mehta said.
