Employees in cash-starved NMC deprived of salaries since past 45 days

Displaying its poor financial condition publicly as well as managing the scarce resources dismally, the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has not paid salaries to hundreds of its employees since the past 45 days. On the other hand, the Standing Committee of the civic body has “shamelessly” approved a proposal to hand over works worth lakhs to a Project Management Consultant (PMC) without blinking an eye.

The NMC is facing the money crunch the day Octroi was abolished. From that day and till to date, the employees never received their pay packets on time except a few bigwig officials from inside as well as outside. But still no voice is being raised by ruling as well as opposition parties, babus and unions, too, and shirking their responsibilities to streamline the revenue generating resources.

On the other hand, the NMC engineers, to escape the responsibilities, are handing every work to PMCs at the expense of the civic body.
