Salt Lake With A Budget Of More Than `50 Crore

Filled under:

During the tenure of the last civic board, the municipality had to request the state government to give grants for things like road repairs and sewerage repairs. With no immediate signs for the property tax dispute to be sorted out, the civic body will continue to be financially crippled.

Bhattacharya had earlier said that it is the residents of Salt Lake who will suffer for the Trimonthly-run municipality's non-cooperation with the government.Will the government stop sanctioning grants to us only for not meeting the minister. We have already submitted a list of civic issues. We do not think there will be any problem to undertake development work," she had said a day after she decided not to meet Bhattacharya.

The projects cannot be implemented without government assistance. There are plans to set up a water treatment plant somewhere in the added areas. There are also plans to revamp the township's sewerage and develop the brasseries as Eco-tourism spots. All these will require government grants, as the municipality alone does not have the necessary resources.
