Give funds to MCD for G-20 works, Govt tells Centre

Thursday, 26 January 2023 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

Ahead of the G20 Summit in September this year, the Delhi Government has demanded that the Centre give funds to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) to carry out works as part of preparations.

 “The Centre gives funds to local bodies and municipal corporations... There is a formula for it, funds are allocated to municipal corporations according to the population. We have been demanding funds for the municipal corporation for six years. Delhi is the national capital, the G20 Summit is coming up. A large number of events will be held here and a lot of people will come. So, it is the Centre’s duty to give funds to the municipal corporation,” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.

He also demanded that the Centre increase goods and service tax (GST) compensation for Delhi.

As part of the implementation of the new tax regime, the Centre compensates the States and Union Territories (UTs) with a Legislative Assembly for any loss in revenue.
