States told to create spl municipal cadre

Union Urban Development Minister Kamal Nath on Monday urged states to create special municipal cadre to ensure that local bodies have dedicated staff to carry out plans specific to the urban areas.

Addressing a conference here, he said in the proposed next phase of Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), the Centre would give grants to only those states who establish a municipal service.

He said creation of municipal service is very much required to ensure urban local bodies should have dedicated staff to implement projects and its maintenance.

Currently, in the absence of a dedicated cadre, municipal bodies are borrowing services of other administrative services on deputation basis, which could be changed if the local bodies have their own cadre.
