NEW DELHI: To make optimum use of property tax collection from a ward for carrying out development work in that particular area, the East Delhi Municipal Corporation has launched a scheme to allocate a part of it towards the local councillor development fund.

The fund can be automatically utilised for carrying out development work, such as road construction/repair, drain construction, etc, an official said.

Under this scheme, 5% of the total collection of property tax and licence fee (as received by EDMC from the issuance of general trade, health, veterinary and factory trade licence) of a particular ward will be released towards the local councillor’s area development fund, subject to a maximum disbursal of Rs 50 lakh, the civic body said in a press statement.
