As Delhi gets ready to welcome the monsoon in a few days, authorities have made elaborate plans to allay fears of waterlogging in the newly opened Pragati Maidan tunnel like constructing underground sumps and installing an automatic pumping system to collect and swiftly drain stormwater during heavy rains.
