Late Shiv Sena patriarch Bal Thackeray, cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and SP leader Abu Azmi are among the two lakh water bill defaulters in Mumbai.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), which recently made public the list of defaulters on its website, has named several biggies including former Maharashtra Chief Minister A R Antulay for non-payment of dues.

The civic body has recovered massive dues of over Rs 1,000 crore from over two lakh defaulters in the metropolis as on January 16, 2014.

"The list has been prepared based on information received from 24 ward offices and comprises names of all defaulters from commercial, industrial and domestic connections categories," a civic official said.

The BMC would soon consider action against these defaulters based on the amount they have to pay, the official said.

When contacted, a source close to the Thackeray family told PTI that they would check into bills pending.

While Azmi said, "There is no bill pending from my side. Due to the mismanagement of the civic body they might have not sent the bill. I have checked with the manager of my hotel and no bill is pending. If at all the bill is pending I will pay it within a day. I will send notice to the BMC for including me in the defaulters list."
