Chandigarh Municipal Corporation (MC) will begin its service on citizens’ doorsteps from sector 45 on Tuesday with the Corporation Aapke Dwar initiative. During the trip, the citizenry holds an open door meeting where residents can raise their problems and complaints.
Chandigarh city commissioner Anindita Mitra told The Indian Express, “Officials including me, the mayor and the area council will be there. Residents (RWA) are very welcome. Officials from the affected wards, including executive engineers (XEN) and health and hygiene inspectors, will also accompany us. “
In addition to the open house, a separate counter was set up for individual complaints. “We will be building requirements into sequential plans and budgets so that future work can be done according to people’s needs,” added Mitra. Short-term complaints should be processed immediately.
Citizenship begins just days before the city goes to the MC polls. The elections are due to take place in December and the code of conduct will come into force in November.
PROBLEMS THAT DAMAGE THE COMPANY
As citizens prepare for the establishment of Corporation Aapke Dwar, garbage disposal continues to be a cause for concern.
The Federation of Sector Welfare Associations Chandigarh (FOSWAC) is dissatisfied with the waste management policy and how it works and has stated that the MC has unilaterally and arbitrarily imposed this policy on residents.
“It has to be scrapped or modified to make it work. The MC has miserably failed to dispose of the city’s garbage, which has resulted in residents paying almost three times the fees they would normally have to pay for garbage collection, ”explained FOSWAC.
The members stated that the fees for the waste collection were announced according to the area of a property, but would instead be billed on a kitchen basis.
