Mumbai: To show commitment towards transparency, Bhartiya Janata Party councillors on Monday demanded cancelling of licence renewal of plumbers to reduce corruption at ward level.
In its third meeting, the civic general body members discussed the irrelevant charges demanded by licenced plumbers of new water connections in slums.
The councillors demanded public should be allowed to self attest their documents for new water connection rather than bribe a plumber.
Shailaja Girkar, BJP councillor, said, “Slum dwellers are being overcharged for new water connections, which must stop.”
