Chandigarh, May 29

Several important agenda items were approved at a meeting of the MC General House held via video-conferencing here today.

The monthly meetings could not be held in March and April due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.

Municipal Commissioner KK Yadav said road recarpeting work in the city would be carried out between September and December.

He said due to the Covid-19 pandemic, contractors could not start work. Last year too, pending recarpeting work could not be done due to shortage of funds.

Other key decisions

  • The MC decided to refund Rs65 lakh booking fee of 498 persons. The bookings were done in advance for April and May for community centres.
