Local officials[edit] The ruling Party is BJP, ShivSena and Congress. Government institutions[edit] The Navjivan Sudhar Kendra (aka Navjivan Mahila Vustigruh) is a shelter for rescued women (women rescued by the police during raids in bars and brothels). The inmates are sheltered here pending the resolution of their respective cases in civil and criminal courts. This institution has been in the news recently when 17 inmates escaped from the shelter.[3] In the subsequent investigation by both government and media agencies, the administration of the shelter has been thoroughly criticised. A report by a Mumbai
Mumbai
High Court appointed committee calls it "a living hell".[4] There are five children's homes run jointly by the government and NGOs. The Chembur Children's Home was established in 1939.[5] The Home for Mentally Deficient Children was established in 1941.[6] There are two observation homes set up in 1960[7] and 1974[8] with the purpose of sheltering rescued children - who have run away, have been employed as child labour, victims of disasters, broken homes, etc. Finally there is the Bal Kalyan Nagari which was established in 1975 for the same reason.[9] Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education is also located in Mankhurd. Cleanliness issues[edit] The surrounding region near the creek is covered by acres of mangrove swamps. A comprehensive clean-up operation was undertaken by councillor Chiragkumar Brahamabhatt.
