NMC Pay Hikes
Nagpur: Bringing rejoice to the hordes of corporators across various civic bodies in Maharashtra, including Nagpur Municipal Corporation, the State government has loaded heavy increments in their monthly remuneration. With this decision, now the monthly remuneration for corporators in NMC would be increased to Rs 20,000 per month from the existing Rs 7500.

The government resolution (GR) states that NMC corporators under ‘A plus’ category would be getting Rs 25,000 per month. Then the corporators under A category would get Rs 20,000, those under B category would get Rs 15,000 and remaining under other categories would be entitled to get Rs 10,000 per month.

The increments are being seen as a major help in other expenses of corporators that incur on phone, stationery etc.
It may be mentioned that during the last BJP regime in NMC, the then corporator of Muslim League Aslam Khan had repeatedly raised the demand to hike remuneration of corporators in view of the rising inflation. However the ruling party did not heed to his demand.

At present there are 156 corporators in NMC and the civic body will have to bear the burden of Rs 31.2 lakh to pay off the increased salaries. Till now, just one third of this amount was being spent on footing the salary bills. It would pose another challenge for the cash-starved NMC to pay all the corporators in time.
