The NMMC women corporators are about to enjoy their first fun-filled expedition after their 5- year tenure.
A 6 day educational trip has been planned by the civic administration. All the 65 women corporators will be traveling to Kolkata and Gangtok municipal corporation.
The NMMC has funded for the trip also including the air fare. The trip in total costs Rs. 38 lakhs. Municipal Commissioner N Ramaswami said “The Women Child Welfare Committee had proposed a trip for its members, along with other women corporators. While the administration has worked out the itinerary, but it is yet to get an approval from the general body. The proposal will be discussed at the upcoming meeting.”
The administration has also been trying to look for a 4- star hotel accommodation. “The trip will be economical and therefore the inclusion of 4-star hotels,” said Ramaswami
Though the trip is first of its kind, some women don’t wish to be part of it as they deem it to be an unnecessary expenditure
“Gangtok is one of the 90 cities to be participating in the Smart City competition. This will be ideal for us to learn about the measures incorporated towards cleanliness. To learn about the administration in other municipal corporation’s we zeroed in on Kolkata,” said a senior women corporator.
