In which eight cities of Gujarat will the Rupnagar government form a new municipal corporation? Learn Details
Gandhinagar: There are eight municipal corporations like Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Vadodara, Surat, Rajkot, Bhavnagar, Jamnagar and Junagadh in Gujarat. The direct political and economic benefits, the ruling party and the people of the metropolitan cities are getting it. The Gujarat government has now come to know from the sources that Nadiad, Anand, Bharuch, Amreli, Porbandar, Surendranagar, Valsad and Mehsana are considering to convert municipalities of ‘A’ class into municipalities.
The Urban Development Department has proposed a proposal for this. Which is likely to be presented for approval in the cabinet meeting next. The proposal for this has been prepared in the urban development department. This was discussed at a cabinet meeting sometime in the past. However, at that time it was advocated to correct some errors and improve it. At that time, it was also discussed in the cabinet meeting that there was a severe shortage of IAS officers in Gujarat.
At present, in the municipalities like Jamnagar, Junagadh, no experienced IAS officer is ready to go as municipal commissioner. Where would the 8 new municipal corporations be made, who would be sent to the Municipal Commissioner? That would be a question. However, there were also a number of issues related to political issues that were discussed in favor of the BJP against such negative issues in the discussion on the proposal. It means that the state government has already conducted a drill for the 8 municipalities to be turned into municipalities, according to sources.
Now, what other small municipalities or nearby village panchayats should be included in this municipal corporation to include the rule of population? It was also known that the proceedings of the proceedings were started. At present, the matter of converting 8 municipalities into municipalities is in the preliminary stage. After getting the green tea in the cabinet meeting, no work will be started in that direction.
According to their category of municipalities, financial assistance is provided by the state government. Even though the municipal corporations have their own source of income, they are also benefiting from various schemes of the Government of India. Compared to municipalities, the standard of living of the municipal population is considered high.
Gram panchayats having population of more than 25,000 have been converted into municipalities. The government has changed the teachers to 4 categories. In which 22 municipalities having more than one lakh population, ‘A’ class, 34 municipalities with population of 50,000 to 1 lakh, ‘B’ class, 62 municipalities of 25 to 50 thousand and ‘C’ class and 44 municipal corporations having population of 15 to 25 thousand ‘D’ category Contains
If the proposed 8 municipalities are turned into a municipal corporation, then it is likely that the BJP will get direct political advantage. The majority of the seats of the current municipal corporation seats are BJP.
Corporations and most of the municipalities are BJP. This means that BJP is dominant in most urban areas. If new 8 municipalities are created, the new urban area will increase and this will give BJP greater political advantage. If the municipal corporation gets financial assistance from the Government of India’s schemes, then the economic burden on the state government can be reduced.
