The show revolves around a hardworking and honest IAS officer Surendra Kapoor. He has three daughters and a mentally ill son who was affected by the death of his mother a few days back. Surendra is municipal commissioner and his presence as an honest person annoys the powerful builder's lobby when he takes up the massive demolition task to normalize the haphazard urban development which is caused by so much of illegal construction everywhere in the city. These builders wish to weaken Surendra.
Therefore aim at the jugular of his life, his son. Such is the condition created by his enemies that Surendra is not able to help it. They weave such a web of dishonesty that Surendra gets suspended. As a result, he finds himself in such a situation which he feels has no way out. While he fights with the mafia involved with the construction business at work, he also struggles on two sides with his family.
