Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation BMC
Till now BMC (Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation) officials and corporators toured several places in the country and abroad to learn from them. Now it is time to learn from Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC).

After getting invitation from AMC commissioner and senior Odia IAS officer of Gujarat cadre Guruprasad Mohapatra, BMC decided to send a 10 member team of corporators to Gujarat on August 16 to help them learn the civic delivery system . Guruprasad Mohapatra also presented an audio-visual demonstration of AMC works here on Monday.

“According to his invite, we would send our corporators to understand the functioning of AMC. The corporators would learn the functioning in different departments like tax, license, sanitation and beautification,” BMC commissioner Sanjib Kumar Mishra said. “This will be an exchange of best practices between the municipal corporations of the two cities,” AMC commissioner Mohapatra said.

But after so many efforts, citizens do not see any change in the civic functioning. The city continues to be plagued by a host of problems. (Source – The Times of India)
