Sir Our storm water drainage system is being laid by GHMC, they are also connecting sewage water pipe lines into it. When there is heavy rain storm water drainage gets filled and water is coming into our house, during summer time the sewage accumulated is giving foul smell and it has become a breeding ground for muscitos. Does the GHMC act permit joining sewage and storm water drainage.

You asked: Does the GHMC act permit joining sewage and storm water drainage. Reply: Local act applicable, refer the concerned act.
Generally such procedure is not mentioned in the act. Send letter to concerned department to change the practice. If no result discuss with local lawyer to discuss scope for court orders. There is possibility that such practice is adopted due to non practicability otherwise / budget problems / requirements.
