KBS Foundation was formed in 2008 by a group of individuals belonging to various local Advanced Locality Management (ALMs) teams of Khar, Bandra and Santacruz to improve the quality of life of the community and to push forth ideas that were not on the radar of government agencies. The annual ‘Mumbai Car Free Day’ conducted on Carter Road is one of their projects.
