SNIPPETS FROM MCGM

mcgm-snippets2With the death of a girl in Pune, members at MCGM Standing Committee had raised the growing concern of swine flu in the city. With the demand of the members, MCGM has decided start scanning and blood tests at its eastern and western suburbs civic hospitals, which include Siddharth hospital in Goregaon, M T Agarwal hospital and Mulund and Baba hospital in Bandra. The centre had directed the state government to provide mid day meals to private schools like that done in civic schools. The centre has directed to form a scheme for the same. MCGM Commissioner Dr. Jairaj Pathak informed that forming a central kitchen and distributing the mid day meal to each school would be expensive. Hence the civic body will consider the tiffin system and a meeting would be held with private schools soon. MCGM Commissioner Dr. Jairaj Pathak has said that with no rain the lakes in the city have 7 lakhs 22000 mld of water which means a 200 day water supply. And hence while the 15% water cut will continue, the civic body has assured no increase in the cut. The civic body expects rain by August 12 or 13. The government may not be willing to bow down to the striking teachers demands, but may be looking at a financial crisis with the bosses approving the demands of 24 lakh employees to pay House Rent Allowance on lines with the Centres Sixth Pay recommendations. The state has agreed to pay 24 lakh employees House Rent Allowance on lines with the Centres Sixth Pay recommendations. MCGM Commissioner Dr. Jairaj Pathak informed that there are many employees in MCGM who do not own a house and hence 30% HRA would be given to them.
