Colonel (retd) TPS Tyagi, the chairman submitted a copy to the municipal commissioner Ghaziabad Dinesh Chandra on Thursday and urged him to implement their demands.

Giving a citation it states that in China, the RWAs are called Resident Committees which have the power of adjudication and maintenance of some municipal services, their budget is compensated up to 30 % by the Government. So the municipal body should apply such model in India. “As RWAs have been categorized as the Booth Level Volunteers by the Chief Election Commissioner, hence they should be provided the Voter Lists at the District Level and they should be allowed to submit Form 6 in bulk of their respective areas,” said Col Tyagi.
“The number of Gazetted Holidays should be cut down to a maximum of 10 Days. Tax payers should be given pension in some proportion of the tax paid by them. At least elementary military training should be made compulsory at High School level,” said Tyagi.
