Around three years after the departments of primary education and primary health were transferred to the Municipal Corporation, the sub-committees have not been constituted.
An agenda is being brought up in the meeting of the general house of the civic body to define the functions that the sub-committees will perform.
The meeting of the House is scheduled for January 29. While the MC has sought notification of the sub-committees from the UT Administration over the past few years, this has not been done.
The Administration had asked the civic body to define the functions that the sub-committees would perform. A discussion on the same will now be held in the meeting of the House. The recommendations will then be sent to the Administration.
The councillors have time and again raised the issue of the sub-committees for these two departments not having been constituted.
Another agenda that will be part of the meeting will be the approval of community centre guidelines. The guidelines were prepared after much debate among the councillors.
While earlier the civic body was preparing bylaws for community centres, the Administration raised an objection to this, stating that the MC could frame guidelines and not make bylaws.
Increasing the financial powers of the sub-committees is also on the agenda. A demand had been raised by councillors in a previous meeting of the House that the sub-committees that do not have financial powers should be given these and for the rest the amount should be increased.
