Gyanesh Bharti is a 1998-batch AGMUT cadre officer. Prior to this, he was working as Commissioner of Southern and Eastern Municipal Corporation.
Delhi Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Act, 2022 was passed by Parliament to unify all the three municipal corporations of Delhi-- North Delhi Municipal Corporation, South Delhi Municipal Corporation, and East Delhi Municipal Corporation-- into one entity.
With the move, the three present municipal corporations of Delhi will be treated as one Municipal Corporation of Delhi from today.
The move comes almost one month after the Rajya Sabha on April 5 passed with a voice vote the Delhi Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2022 to merge the three municipal corporations of Delhi into a single entity.
The Act sought to unify the three municipal corporations into a single, integrated and well-equipped entity to ensure a robust mechanism for synergised and strategic planning and optimal utilisation of resources. (ANI)
