The Mayor directed that there should be security in the city forest. From this point of view, along with security guards, CCTV cameras should be installed so that no incident occurs and the construction work done does not get damaged.

Utilisation of space should be the priority and wherever work is going on, it should also be inspected and a list where work has been done and where work is to be done should also be made available, he added.

Commissioner Imposes Fine Of Rs 50K On Sanitation Co

UMC commissioner Raushan Kumar Singh inspected the cleanliness arrangements in Meghdoot Forest parking, Char Dham Temple parking, Harsiddhi Temple, Sher Square, Narsingh Ghat on Tuesday.

The commissioner expressed his displeasure over the cleaning staff not being found in the dress code at the workplace during cleaning work and directed the concerned officer to impose a fine of Rs 50,000 on the concerned company.

While inspecting the Mahakal area, the commissioner directed that a large number of devotees come here, therefore there should not be any negligence in the cleanliness system here, cleaning should be done regularly and the shopkeepers here should also be advised to maintain cleanliness around their shop. From the Char Dham temple to the Sher Chauraha Harsiddhi temple, there has been encroachment by the cart vendors. They should be removed strictly so that there is no problem in traffic.

Absence Of Officers Delaying Work In UMC

"It has been more than 15 days since the assembly election results came out, even after that work is not being done in UMC. Citizens are coming with their work, employees are wandering with files but they are not able to find the officers."

Expressing his annoyance, Ramchandra Korat, patron of Retired Employees' Union, Safai Kamgar Sangh and Autonomous Employees' Union, said that all the work has come to a standstill due to officers not coming to the UMC for the last several days. Due to non-availability of officers in the health department, accounts department, establishment department and other departments of the UMC, employee-related work is not being done, due to which they are facing problems.

In the recent meeting of the Employees' Union, the commissioner had given instructions to the officers to complete the work immediately, but to date no work has been started. The commissioner had issued orders for payment of four per cent DA arrear amount to the retired employees but the arrear amount was also not paid, Korat complained.
