Places like Upper Bazar, City Centre Mall, Argora, Harmu Road are some of the places in the state capital where sewage water can be seen overflowing on the road after every rain in the city and people can be seen negotiating with water in pot holes to walk and drive properly. Those having their houses beside the road have hard times passing their time as overflowing drain water enter in their houses and causes damages.

Ranchi Municipal Corporation’s (RMC) is expected to take care of for proper management of water in drain but unable to stop unplanned development the civic body appears helpless and its attempt to ensure proper drainage is perfunctory at best as so far it has not come with any proper drainage plan that can channelize drain water and ensure its deposition in river after proper treatment
