[mpisgmedia] Another case of NGOitis


As the court had banned the deployment of government staff in these colonies, the Municipal Commissioner decided to employ NGOs who along with the help of Resident Welfare Associations will collect the garbage from door to door and transport it to dhalao. The residents will pay an amount decided by the corporation to the NGOs.

The Municipal Commissioner agrees that the collection of door-to-door garbage is being done already by the private persons (sweepers), but they do not segregate the garbage. It is the NGOs who will do so, he claims.

There is no need to take charge from the residents. It’s obligatory function of the corporation. The MCD should carry it out itself.
