Kiran Dighavkar

A civil engineer by education, Kiran Dighavkar has been working with MCGM as an assistant commissioner since 2013.

Originally from the city of Satana in Nashik District, Dighavkar considers Mumbai to be his karma-bhoomi and has been tirelessly working towards the betterment of the city.

Before being posted in the G-North ward in 2019, Dighavkar worked as the assistant municipal commissioner in Mumbai’s A-ward, comprising some of Mumbai’s most elite areas such as Colaba, Cuffe Parade, Churchgate, and CST, as well as the city’s M-East ward, rife with slums. This exposed Dighavkar to the many disguises of Mumbai.

Working on curbing the virus in Dharavi, Asia’s largest slum, has been a challenge as well as a learning experience for him. An integral part of shaping what is now known as the ‘Dharavi Model’, Dighavkar has penned his journey and experience of the pandemic in this book.
