Big money lying idle

Tuesday, January 08, 2019

IF the BMC does not want to spend the money it collects, why does it collect it? Has it some plan to store it? It has only spent some 37 per cent of the budget during the last year.

It looks like it has not been able to find projects for the benefit of citizens. This is a serious matter. The money has been collected for using it to implement various beneficial projects. The money lying in storage is huge. Maybe they did not expect the big collection. They could not foresee that the collection would amount to so much. Can the municipal commissioner explain the big mistake? He has to answer the question. Why is 63 per cent of the collection lying idle now? Does not the city need any improvement? Is there no pending water programme? There is need for increasing the water needs of citizens. The growth of the city keeps rising. Quite a few times there has been shortage of money and projects could not be implemented. For once money is no problem. Mumbai is the richest municipal corporation in the country. It has a budget which is more than the budget of some of the smaller states in the country. Has the BMC failed the citizens.

The municipal commissioner is the big chief. He has to keep showing the way — telling the corporators about the various works ahead. If he was alert, the municipality would have enough projects to be worked out. A strange situation has arisen. There is enough work but no details or information about projects. And no new work is done. Money is lying idle.

The BMC must explain. It must explain how the situation has arised? Was not the BMC aware of the big money ready for use? Something has gone wrong in the corridor of power of the BMC.
