MLA Sandeep Naik concluded the deliberations on the proposed NMMC Budget 2010 – 2011 in the Standing Committee today. The pointers that the Chairman gave to the administration, if implemented will help develop Navi Mumbai into green city with landmarks and tourists spots, reports Dy. Editor Sana Warsia. After three days of marathon discussions in NMMC Standing Committee, Standing Committee Chairman MLA Sandeep Naik proposed an additional revenue of Rs 232 crore over the budget proposed by the NMMC administration in NMMC budget 2010 – 2011. The Standing Committee proposed budget of Rs crores has allocated additional funds for promoting tourism in the city along with including a green concept so that Navi Mumbai can also be rated as a healthy city. Like the Shivaji memorial in Vashi, the Standing Committee had also proposed to have memorials for martyrs as well as leaders of the past in prominent locations of the city. For tourism, MLA Sandeep Naik has asked the administration to make use of the city creeks for ganpati visarjans, jetty along with developing them into picnic spots. Along with this, he added that a tower like the Eiffel tower in Paris should be constructed in the city, which will promote tourism as well as revenue for the corporation. For students and players of the city, cricket academy and town library has also been proposed. The Standing Committee has proposed additional revenue of Rs 232 crore through cess, property tax, encroachments, advertisements and other avenues. A significant suggestion made was providing an alternate route for the traffic coming from Shirwane to Taloja which will save both fuel and time for the containers heading from MIDC. In the last two budgets, MLA Sandeep Naik had made significant and innovative inclusions in the budget but they were never implemented by the NMMC administration. Since this is MLA Sandeep Naik's last tenure as Standing Committee Chief, there's little hope that the the administration will seriously incorporate the inclusions made by the Chairman. However if it does, then there is definitely some good news for tax paying citizens in Navi Mumbai in the proposed NMMC Budget 2010 - 2011.
