In a recent development at Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), Amiya Chandra, officer on special duty, MCD, has moved out of advertisement liaising. BM Singh, an officer with MCD, will now handle this responsibility.
Confirming the news to afaqs!, Chandra says, "I will be there for all policy related matters and continue to give support to Singh, who will be involved with day-to-day responsibilities, such as demolition of illegal hoardings and license fee collection. I need to focus on infrastructure development projects related to the Games, which is why I decided to give up the additional responsibility."
Another important project is the rehabilitation of 2 lakh urban vendors by means of 'tehbazari' in 12 zones of Delhi.
All these initiatives planned by Chandra will work on build, own, operate, transfer (BOOT) system. Tenders will be floated for these initiatives, and winning bidders will be given ad rights on the properties by MCD.First Published : January 11, 2010
