The Municipal Corporation Office in Madhya Pradesh's Indore turned into a small 'pool' as water entered the office making difficult for the staff and public for over two hours on Sunday.
"The office was open today for payment of advance tax. We are getting a good response. Rain is natural during monsoon. There was some problem but the water receded on its own," said Assistant Revenue Officer CB Singh.
