‘TECHNICALLY SUPERSEDED’ GMC TO PRESENT ITS BUDGET ON MARCH 23
Gandhinagar: The Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation (GMC) may pass its budget on March 23, if the election commissioner grants approval.
The GMC is technically superseded because before the local body passes the annual budget for the next fiscal, the state election commission has announced elections.
Sources privy to the matter said that the organization is technically superseded. But, will be allowed to present its budget on Tuesday, all the same.
Talking about the development, Leader of Opposition Shailendrasinh Bihola said that the budget has been awaiting approval of the general board for the past two months.
“It has been two months since the standing committee passed the budget. But somehow, the mayor has not called for a general board meeting yet,” Bihola told First India.
He further stated that generally the local body’s budget must be passed by February 20, in case there are any changes in the taxes.
“The budget has not passed yet and the general board meeting is likely to be held on Tuesday, with the prior permission of the state election commission.
However, this process seems dubious but because the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is ruling in GMC and the state,” he added.
