Gurgaon: MCG councillors and officials will discuss a slew of measures in the House meeting on Thursday in a bid to increase the corporation’s revenue. The civic body has already proposed to give its vacant land on lease or rent it out to generate revenue. For this, 22 acres of land in Daultabad and nine acres of land in Dharampur village have already been identified.
Also, the budget proposal for the next fiscal year with an estimated expenditure of Rs 2,538.31 crore and income of Rs 4,161.86 crore will be tabled in the meeting on Thursday.
Moreover, the corporation has also proposed to sell off three group housing sites, two commercial towers, 29 shop-cum-offices (SCOs), six booths and four kiosks to meet the cost for constructing its new office at Vyapar Sadan. The civic body will have to generate around Rs 116 crore for this. The House will discuss all the proposals made to increase the income of the civic body.
“We need around Rs 116 crore for constructing a new MCG building at Vyapar Sadan. So, we have decided to sell off these sites to meet the cost. With this, we will be able to generate around Rs 135 crore,” said Thakur Lal Sharma, chief engineer, MCG.
The MCG is also planning to increase the annual fee for meat licence. At present, the civic body charges Rs 5,000 as licence. Now, it could be increased to Rs 10,000. The councillors also pointed out in a pre-budget meeting that action should also be taken against the meat shops operating illegally in the city.
