Palike does a U-turn, says it has 289 bank accounts

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike administration has said it has 289 bank accounts against its earlier claim that the number of accounts have been reduced to a mere 26.

In response to a query by BJP leaders and former mayors S K Nataraj, B S Sathyanarayana and former corporator S Harish, the Palike's Special Commissioner (Finance), Kumar Pushkar said the number of bank accounts have been increased for the ease of administration.

“We had decided to have 26 bank accounts but later we realised that we had to retain 145 accounts more for drawals and disbursals, 27 accounts for BBMP's transaction, 28 for health and contingency and 89 for the education,” said Kumar Pushkar. The officer said there was a need to have 585 drawals and disbursals account, which has been reduced to a mere 145.
