Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): To improve the financial situation of Ujjain Municipal Corporation (UMC), it needs a sum of Rs125 crore. For this, mayor Mukesh Tatwal handed over three separate letters to the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on his arrival in the city on Wednesday.

It has been written in the letter that UMC is currently running into extreme financial trouble. Due to this, many important works are hindered. The mayor is unable to get even small works done, the ambitious schemes of the Central government and the state government are also not being completed.
The pending amount for the financial year 2021-22 is Rs 70 crore and the payment amount for previous years is Rs 56.78 crore. In this way, a total payment of Rs126.78 crore is pending.
