KMC committee formed for Kolkata beautification

Kolkata Mayor Sovan Chatterjee on Tuesday formed a committee that will determine `fair’ rates for the city’s beautification projects.

The committee headed by Atin Ghosh, a senior member, mayor-in-council, will help civic officials in fixing a `fair rate’ for contractors who will be awarded tenders for beautification works.He will be assisted by three other senior MMiCs Tarak Singh, Debasish Kumar and Debabrata Majumdar. After they reach a consensus on the `fair rate’ at which the payment will be made to the contractors, the proposal will be placed before the mayor for his approval.

The civic body has plans to beautify the city on the lines of similar projects being undertaken in other metropolitan cities. “For this, we needed to fix a fair rate for the contractors. I will give my stamp of approval to the rates to be fixed by the expert committee from time to time,“ the Mayor said.
