Revealing that tenders have been floated to take up modernisation of the bus stand in the City at a cost of Rs 1.50 crore under State Finance Commission plan, Sampangi said that the coffers of City Municipality is empty and he would take steps to increase the revenue collection of the local body by discussing the issue with the CMC president and the minister. Negotiations will be held with the tenants of shop premises in M G Market to increase the monthly rental for mobilisation of funds to provide basic amenities, he said.
