The directions were issued by municipal commissioner Sitaram Kunte, who also heads the Greater Mumbai Disaster Management Authority.
Kunte held a monsoon review meeting on Wednesday evening to discuss the problems faced by civic officials due to the outpour on Sunday.
The meeting was also attended by railway officials.
“We will reexamine the flooding spots in railway premises and study the drainage system to identify problem areas,” Kunte said.
A joint inspection would be conducted by officials from the storm water drains department and those from the railways to prevent flooding on tracks.
On Sunday, services running on Central and Harbour railway routes were suspended for as long as four hours leaving lakhs of commuters stranded.
Areas that faced major flooding in the past ten days and disrupted suburban trains on the Central Railway route i nclude Masjid, Sandhurst Road, Currey Road among others till Sion.
Civic officials, however, said the flooding on railway tracks was primarily because of the inadequate desilting work carried out by the railways.
