more than 50 students. The rate of tax shall be 15% of the annual value of the vacant land

Non-residential properties not included (b) above and including hotels of 3 star category
and above, Malls, Air-Conditioned Gyms, Clubs with Swimming Pools, Guest Houses, Banquet
Halls and Coaching Centers Coaching more than 50 students. The rate of tax shall be 20% of
the annual value of the vacant land or part thereof or covered space of the building under
但, 腺, 舛, 船 薦, 詮, 賎 & 践 categories. As per the DMC Act, 1957, seven
discretionary taxes can be imposed. MCD is imposing only two taxes so far viz. toll tax
and electricity tax. It is proposed to introduce Professional Tax from the next year. It
is already being imposed in nearly all the states of the country. In most of the cities,
it is being imposed at the minimum income or salary of Rs. 5000. But we are proposing to
increase it from the income of Rs. 30,000 and above. The tax would be minimum @ Rs.100
per month and maximum @ Rs.200 per month. It is expected that the increase would yield an
income of Rs. 100 crores, which would be invested in the improvement of the civic
services. The most important aspect is that our entire non-plan income is from our
own resources. Secondly, it is based on real estimates. The non-realizable income has
been excluded from the calculation. Thirdly, in order to meet out our expenditure, we
have not borrowed any loan either from Delhi or the Central Govt. The projection of
actual income will lead to controlled expenditure resulting in better fiscal management.
Our proposed estimated income for 2009-10 is Rs. 5843.19 crores, which has been revised to
Rs. 4964.01 crores. The revised expenditure is Rs.5846 crores. This includes the opening
balance of Rs. 886 crores. We will leave an opening balance of Rs. 410 lacs. During
2010-11, the income is proposed to be Rs. 6347 crores and expenditure Rs. 6327 crores.
After taking into account the opening balance, we shall be left with Rs.24 crores as
closing balance. It is proposed to earmark greater allocation of funds on different
service heads. A glance at the tables will give idea about the allocation on different
services. The expenditure on different heads out of Rupee One would make an interesting
reading. Double Entry Accounting System Though the double entry accounting system
was introduced in MCD in the year 2002-03, the preparation of the financial statements
under the double entry accounting were pending since 2005-06. During the span of one year
from September 2008, it was able to prepare the financial statements for the years
2005-06, 2006-07 & 2007-08 after verifying the expenditures at zonal and divisional level.
While presenting the budget before the Standing Committee last year, I promised that the
financial statements of MCD under double entry accounting would be using the best
practices of international standard. The financial statement of urban local body is
internationally known as Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The CAFR of MCD is
prepared in the standards acceptable to the international community. Within the next one
year, MCD endeavours to complete preparation of the up-to-date CAFR of the remaining
years. As to bring in more accountability, CAFR of the 12 Zones have been also prepared
separately for the first time and have been consolidated into the CAFR of MCD. This will
enable MCD to assess the financial strength and activities of every individual zone
separately. Municipal Assets are created, acquired or gifted. Through these financial
data, the assets created or acquired during the respective years are identified and have
been used to reconcile the assets shown in the CAFR. Monitorine dishonoured cheques The
dishonoured cheques received against municipal revenue are processed by the concerned
zones and departments separately. This year, a centralised system has been initiated for
monitoring the dishonoured cheques at HQ level. The Zonal treasuries and CSBs are provided
with slips containing unique numbers that is used for daily remittance. This number will
help to track the source of cheque if dishonoured. A separate cell for this purpose will
be created at HQ which will work on the data ITom the bank statement (MIS). This will
enable us to ensure that due action is taken against every bounced instrument, which will
also act as a deterrent in future. New security oriented receipt books (G8) The receipt
books (G8 receipts) used to collect municipal revenue are printed in the municipal press.
The risk of duplicate receipt books in circulation was very high because mpl. press in not
equipped with facilities for printing receipt books with security features. MCD, w.e.f.
1-10-2009 has introduced new receipt books with security features printed by security
press that cannot be ordinarily duplicated by any ordinary printer. The original receipt
is featured with erasable ground printing which is similar to security available in cheque
books issued by banks. Financial Management through discipline I may
reiterate what I said last year, "financial discipline is the key for better financial
management". Many steps were taken to introduce financial discipline in MCD with fruitful
results. The purchases of new vehicles were curbed. Old and un-productive vehicles that
were causing huge expenses on maintenance were taken off the road and auctioned. With the
introduction of bio-metric attendance system, there had been a paradigm shift in work
culture in MCD. Employees are attending the office in time, thereby leading to increase in
work out-put and reduction in late sitting and consequently overtime
allowance. Installation of pre-paid electrical meters in municipal buildings has led to
reduction in the consumption of electric energy. The meters are constantly monitored by
the concerned officials for ensuring adequate balance while also keeping a check on
possible misuse. As part of financial management, revenue continues to be generated
through short-term investment of available fund. RTGS for oavment to contractors With
ECS payment of salary and wages already in place, RTGS (real time gross settlement) was
introduced this year for the payment to contractors where the money is credited directly
to contractor's bank account by the concerned divisional officers. By this system the HQ
transfer money directly to the divisional bank account through RTGS which is settled in
real time. This had reduced the time consumed in transferring money from HQ to Zone, Zone
to Division and Division to contractor which were initially done through cheque. 1. Door
to Door collection of MSW: Introduction of door to door collection of MSW in Shahdara
(North) & Shahdara (South) Zone through Private Concessionaires. The Municipal
Corporation of Delhi proposes to extend the door-to-door collection of garbage through
private concessionaires in Shahdara (North) & Shahdara (South) Zone, in this financial
year 2009-10, as its Pilot Project for collection of garbage in C.L.Zone and Rohini Zone
is most likely to be successful. The department needs Rs. 57.00 Crores during financial
year 2010-11. 2. Reclamation of Existing land Fill Sites: At present three SLF sites
[dump sites] are in operation in Bhalswa, Ghazipur & Okhla (i) Reclaiming of Slf site{S)
by excavating. Segregating the existing waste. MCD has already sent a proposal to
Planning Commission to allocate budgetary support to a project in respect of reclamation
of Land Fill Site (s) at Ghazipur through Chief Secretary, GNCTD. The department would,
thus, need Rs 00.00 Crores during this financial year 2009-10 and Rs 75.00 Crores during
financial year 2010-11. (ii) Baling System: The OEMS is in a process of undertaking the
work of baling of MSW/waste at Gazipur site. The method can be used for compression of
waste. The waste shall be compressed and rapped into the PVC sheets. The compressed/rapped
waste shall have no excess to the water and air, therefore will not bio-degrade [aerobic
or anaerobic) further. There will be no smell and leachate formation. The compressed
waste will help in reclaiming of the SLF site(s), means the cylindrical bales of the waste
can be stored one above the other [upto any height] and can be easily transferred from one
place to other for the purposes like: making of marginal band etc. The proposal has been
sent to DIMMTS Ltd. [Delhi Integrated Multi-Model Transit System Ltd.], a joint venture of
Govt. of NCT Delhi and IDFC Ltd. to examine its technical feasibility. 3. Deep
Collection System: "Molok" a Finland based company has presented its proposal for Deep
Collection System in Delhi. The Company has successfully implemented the system in China
and other countries of the world. Under this system: The Waste Storage Depot shall be
constructed underground; having inlet from above the ground level. The department would,
thus, need Rs 05.00 Crores during this financial year 2009-10 and Rs 10.00 Crores during
financial year 2010-11. 4. Hiring of Mechanical Sweeper(s): Due to the movement of
vehicles and pedestrians on road(s), service lane(s), central verge(s) and footpath(s),
there is an accumulation of loose materials/debris/rubbish such as i.e. leaves fallen
right side of the carriage way and over the footpath & central verge. The work shall
consist of picking, removal and disposal of loose materials/debris/rubbish deposited' on
or along the road, service lane, central verge and footpath, cutting of vegetation -
maintenance of green area, as necessary by the Contractor, at least once [or more [even
during day time), as per requirement of site] in a day. (i) Street sweeping through
Mechanical Means: The OEMS is .under process of finalisation of tenders in respect of
Sweeping of Roads having Right of Way (ROW) ~ 100 feet, with in the jurisdiction of MCD,
by deploying Mechanical Sweeper(s) of required capacity [first phase]. MCD will require
about Rs 10.00 Crores per year. (ii) Mechanical sweeping of roads having right of way ~
60 feet but less than 100 feet: The MCD proposes to undertake mechanical sweeping of
roads having right of way >_ 60 feet but less than 100 feet by hiring the mechanical
sweepers. MCD will require about Rs 10.00 Crores per year. (iii) Mechanical sweeping of
roads in commercial areas: The MCD proposes to undertake mechanical sweeping of roads in
commercial areas by hiring the mechanical sweepers. MCD will require about Rs 5.00 Crores
per year. The main areas are Hospital Information System, Engineering Department
Information System, e-Tendering , Property Tax Information System It is noted that three
IT projects of MCD has been appreciated at National level by different Forum. The
Registration of Births and Deaths System got appreciation award by the RGI &. Property Tax
Information System got the award in 2008. The Hospital Information System (HIS) has got
National Award bye-India at Hyderabad in August 2009. Since the aforementioned
initiatives are department specific and operate 1'1 isolation and these non integrated
applications do not provide consolidated reports for the top management for proper
monitoring and the data captured IS not harnessed In an effective manner., MCD has
undertaken a comprehensive exercise to implement ICT based e-Governance solution across
the organization in order to harness the power of ICT Platform for 'its vision "As a
socially committed. technology driven. professionally managed and forward looking
organization". This will also streamline its processes and increase efficiency and
effectiveness of citizen services. The ICT based e-Governance is also aimed to bring in
transparency and sustainability of the processes and systems. Health Sector: Some of the
