CHENNAI, APRIL 11. The Chennai Corporation Council will meet only once in three months from now. A Bill to give effect to this decision was introduced in the Assembly amid protest by the main Opposition parties.
The Local Administration Minister, K.P. Anbalagan, introduced the Chennai City Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2005.
Statement of objects
The statement of objects and reasons said that after the ``revision of powers of the Standing Committees and the Commissioner of the Corporation of Chennai... the need for holding the monthly meeting of the Corporation Council for according clearance for various tenders and other important issues has come down.
The Standing Committees, which meet every month, accord their approval for most of the important issues.
Hence, the Government feels that it will be sufficient if the Council meetings are convened at least once in every three months so that the officers of the Corporation will spend more time on field than is being done now.''
A councillor will be disqualified if he or she does not attend three consecutive ordinary meetings of the Council, the Bill said.
