The Maharashtra Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) announced the Class 10, Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exam results online today at 1pm, under the shadow of paper leaks and other malpractices. In a first-of-its-kind experiment, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is planning to provide cycling/jogging tracks along the Tansa-pipeline from suburban Mulund till Antop-Hill in Wadala. Monday night’s downpour drowned BMC’s claims of the city being rain-ready, as the city was mired in traffic snarls. Also, the Maharashtra government will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with online room rental company Airbnb on Tuesday to sell Maharashtra tourism to a wider clientele across the globe.
