This is the sixth consecutive day on which single digit cases were recorded in the slum-dominated area, something which has happened for the first time since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Dharavi on April 1.
The official said at present Dharavi has just 77 active cases.
So far, 2,228 COVID-19 patients have already recovered and discharged from hospitals, he said.
On July 25, ten new COVID-19 cases were recorded from Dharavi, but next day the number dropped to just two and since then the daily number of cases were between 2-9.
The civic body, however, stopped disclosing COVID-19 deaths, if any, from Dharavi from last month.
Spread across 2.5 square kilometres, Dharavi, considered as one of the largest slums in Asia, has a population of over 6.5 lakh.
