2013 should be the ‘Main­te­nance Year’ Chandigarh is cry­ing for rou­tine main­te­nance. The town seems to be on the verge of col­laps­ing as many projects are taken up with much fan­fare and for­got­ten once they are com­pleted. There is a dire need for main­te­nance of gar­dens, parks, green belts, foun­tains, water sup­ply lines and to in­crease the pres­sure of water in sup­ply lines so that the water reaches the top floors. Also, the roads should be made prop­erly, poly­bags should be banned, there bet­ter and im­proved pedes­trian paths for safety of the old and the hand­i­capped. The city needs big­ger water gul­lies amd au­to­mated street lights. The onus lies on Chandigarh Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion. In ad­di­tion, the ward councilors should take real in­ter­est in pub­lic wel­fare. There is ur­gent need of cre­at­ing cen­tral main­te­nance wings for pe­ri­od­i­cal check the faults and take up im­me­di­ate re­pairs. Also, there should be a ded­i­cated 24-hour com­plaint cen­tre for lodg­ing com­plaints on phone. Also pro­vide email ID of the com­plaint cen­tre, which should give au­to­mated re­ply with com­plaint num­ber. The com­plaint once lodged should be at­tended within a rea­son­able time, but not more than a fort­night. This is what is ex­pected in the year 2013. Sa­teesh Dad­wal,
