Maharashtra Government approached the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay for a third-party audit of the lowest bid of Rs. 3,826cr from L&T for Phase-I of Shivaji Memorial project in the Arabian Sea.
A Public Works Department official said IIT-B would "proof check" L&T's bid.
Adding the construction is expected to begin in October, the official said they would commission the first phase by 2017-end.
In a shocking incident, Swarang Dalvi, a 6-year-old Class-I student at Pawar Public School in Mumbai's Chandivali, died after collapsing in the school premises.
He was playing with friends during the short-break before collapsing at around 10:10 am.
School authorities took the boy to the medical-room and later rushed him to the nearby Hiranandani Hospital, where the doctors declared him dead.
Following the incessant rains in Mumbai, fake messages, traffic-alerts, and rumors of cyclone have been doing the rounds on WhatsApp, spreading panic among people.
Several rumors claimed Phyan cyclone was approaching, and Mumbai would receive high rainfall, creating a 2005 deluge-like situation.
Rumors of the closure of Bandra-Worli Sea Link, Pedder Road, Sion Bridge, and Bandra-Santa Cruz SV Road were also forwarded.
