Amritsar, January 28

After the completion of delimitation survey, the Municipal Corporation submitted a detail report to the state government about the new boundaries and numbers of the wards last week. However, the government didn’t issue the draft notification of delimitation to date. The Department of Local Bodies was supposed to issue the draft notifications regarding new boundaries of the MC wards this week. After that, the MC would invite the residents and political parties for their objections and suggestions.
