Gurugram, 17 May 2024: A mock drill of the underpass of Iffco Chowk Metro Station to MG Road was conducted today by the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority in the presence of NHAI officials. The drill was conducted as part of the ongoing mock drills being held at all the underpasses in the city as part of the flood preparedness initiatives of GMDA ahead of the upcoming monsoon season. 

During the drill, recycled water from fire tender was released into the underground sumps in the underpass. Once the sumps were filled, the pumps were activated to check their working and efficacy in pumping out the water. During the drill, it was found that out of the four number of pumps installed in the underpass, only one was in working condition.
