Jaipur: The Jaipur Municipal Corporation is likely to hold the long pending general body meeting (GBM) on October 17.
The meeting will witness, three proposals tabled for the approval. Out of three, two proposals will be tabled for administrative and financial approval of tenders.
According to sources, a proposal for excursion of counsellors to other cities such as Ahmedabad, Chennai and Bengaluru has been included in the agenda.
"The counsellors will visit different cities to learn the revenue generation system, building plan approval, tax collection system, cleaning pattern, etc. The counsellors will prepare and submit a report to improve the JMC's existing system," said the source. "Many important issues for streetlights and other development works are not included in the agenda of the meeting,” the source further added to the information.
The meeting will be called after four and half months that too after the Congress Counsellors threatened to approach the high court to invoke the GBM.
Despite the directions to hold the GBM by the chief minister Vasundhara Raje, the chief of civic body has failed to call the same on time in the past. It is mandatory to call a GBM in 60 days according to the Rajasthan Municipality Act 2009. But JMC's 5th board has conducted only six meetings during its 21-month tenure.
Counsellors also alleged that many public works were affected though the JMC had approved a budget of Rs 1,367 crore and Rs 65 lakh for the 2016-2017 financial year. Out of this, Rs 501 crore was earmarked for development works in the city.
