NEW REGIME BEGINS IN NMMC
FOR THE FIRST TIME: This is the first time that an official has been suspended in the civic body for administrative irregularity. Those indulging in malpractices or lethargic in their functioning are worried. Residents and activists welcomed the move as they hope that similar exercises will help clean up the administration “The property tax department was being virtually ruled as a personal fiefdom. Specific personnel had been working here for years. According to the norms, there have to be transfers affected every three years, but some people have been posted here for five to 10 years with no intention of leaving. This had led to functioning as per their whims and fancies,” said a city-based activist, who did not wish to be named.
